91-year-old man beaten with brick, told 'go back to Mexico'

Quote:
Tears glistened on the black and purple bruises covering 91-year-old Rodolfo Rodriguez's face as he described being attacked by a group of people while going for a walk on the Fourth of July.

"I can't walk anymore," Rodriguez said in Spanish. "I'm in so much pain."
He'll be turning 92 in September, Rodriguez said, and he's never been hurt like this before, in a life working the fields with cattle and corn.

He had traveled from Michoacan, Mexico, to visit his family in Willowbrook, California, a city in Los Angeles County, his grandson Erik Mendoza said.

He makes the trip about twice a year, and takes a walk through the neighborhood every day after lunch, Mendoza said. "Everyone in the neighborhood knows him already," he said.

Sounds made up. Any evidence it happened the way he says?

Right, cause nothing like this ever happened before 2016.

I don't doubt the authenticity but this isn't "new." The people that use tragedies to extort political points are the problem here.

It's more of "they" and "those people" syndrome. A black commits a crime. It's "blacks," not "a person," who committed the crime. "Illegal immigrants" becomes "immigrants" by one side and "immigrants" becomes "don't belongs" by another side. Someone dies or is killed during police custody and it's committed by "police," not "a policeman."

The extremeists, those looking for "ists," win.

At what point to the reasoned people get to win?

You could post one of these per day Yappi. People can be dicks to each other, on either side. What is the point?

If it is say Putin is looking like a mad genius and our current leader has brought moral leadership, civil discourse, and division to an all-time low, then yes I would agree. But not taking the bait to blame every single anecdotal incident. Trends, overall tensions, sure.

"division to an all-time low"


Like discussing the deficit. Blaiming a new milestone without discussing who set the trajectory is a discussion missing a major point. I felt the social divide acceleration the last two presidential terms.

I'm not questioning whether he asked for it, I'm questioning whether the story happened as he said it did since there is, you know, zero evidence supporting it.

30 year old Laquisha Jones was arrested Tuesday night. She attacked him after he bumped into her child. The other suspects are still at large. LASD trying to determine if it was a hate crime.

Why would you think Laquisha is black?

I shouldn't speak for OhioBobcatFan06, but the picture being circulated with this story is definitely of a black woman holding a brick. To be fair, none of the media stories that I have seen have definitively identified the woman in the picture as the same one who has been arrested. The CNN link posted above specifically says that the woman in the picture was not identified by the police as the suspect.

That's why I go directly to the source instead of trusting the media.

LASD has it on their Facebook page

Because a lot of African-Americans, especially women, are Trump supporters.

The left is immune to that particular feeling. It's as noticeable as white noise at this point.

Said it before but the irony from Obamma, the media, on down to the Tigers of the world mocking Romney for calling Russia one of the biggest threats. Priceless.

The more I talk to uneducated stupid people the more I realize that they do not know that they are uneducated stupid. That is why I truly believe that all this fake news being broadcast is being eat up by a good size group of liberals.

It certainly did, it just use to be frowned upon.
