The repatriation of ex-slaves to Africa following the Civil War should have been priority #1. We continue to pay the price for the errors of our ancestors.
Kane Millsaps, a 16-year-old Arkansas teen who brutally sucker punched a 12-year-old while wearing brass knuckles, could face up to 20 years in prison, according to Fox 16.
A discomfiting video of the incident, in which Millsaps can be seen punching the 12-year-old boy, was uploaded on LiveLeak soon after the incident and quickly gained thousands of views. Viewers were left dumbfounded not only by the severity of the incident itself, but also by the fact that a 16-year-old would punch someone much younger than him so needlessly. Now, Millsaps, who has been charged with first-degree battery, is set to be tried as an adult and could face up to 20 years in prison, according to The Daily Star.
One of the shorter versions of the video — 23 seconds in length — shows Millsaps swearing at the camera before flaunting a set of brass knuckles on his left hand. He then walks up behind his victim, who is chatting with his friends while standing on a skateboard, and punches him right in the face. The boy collapses immediately and attempts to save himself from the unprovoked attack. But despite him being in obvious pain, Kane Millsaps continues to punch his victim, till the point when one of his friends pulls him away from the 12-year-old kid.
Ever since the video emerged online, viewers have been shocked by the rashness, as well as the stupidity, of Millsaps’ actions, with many even going on to say that he deserves to get the maximum prison sentence for his actions.
Warning: Disturbing video:
When investigators asked Millsaps the reason for his attack, he reportedly told them that the victim was “running his mouth saying he was an MMA Fighter and he could beat [Millsaps] up.” When investigators asked the victim about what could have provoked the incident, the boy said that he did not even know Kane.
According to a statement given by the victim to the police, he lost consciousness soon after the attack and remembered waking up and thinking that “he had gravel in his mouth but it was pieces of his teeth
The story goes on to say that the ape’s attorney is using the “mental issues” defense to stop the case from going to trial. Actually, most of these apes are mental, which should mean that they would be cleansed from the planet if the world were sane.
Never turn your back on an ape, unless he’s a real ape like Harambe. Harambe was trustworthy. The “unarmed teens” that the press in America so tries to protect can also be trusted–to stab you in the back if you’re white.
One more thing. Our ancestors would have dragged Millsaps out of jail and lynched him. A good thing? Justice? You decide. I know what I believe about justice and the deterrent effect of lynching.
In any case, there’s nothing to prevent the U.S. from reinstating judicial corporal punishment that would involve the ape receiving 200 lashes (enough?) from a whip.
