Riot In East Harlem Saturday night attacks foreshadow Sunday outrages
Before the wilding Sunday in Central Park, an ugly prelude took
place uptown on the night before: A small-scale riot that has
gotten virtually no attention, but was as bad, if not worse, than
what happened downtown. Women were assaulted, trapped in cars.
Cars were destroyed. Young men jumped on top of city buses, pounding
windows and roofs.

not to notice that nearly all the guys who soaked, stripped and

Central Park Rampage By William Saletan
On June 11, roving bands of boys and young men allegedly doused,
stripped, and molested more than 50 women in New York's Central
Park. The assaults took place during and after the National Puerto
Rican Day Parade. The London Sunday Times called the alleged assailants
"60 rampaging black and Hispanic men and boys." Virtually no other
publication or public figure pointed out the ethnicity of the
alleged culprits. Previous high-profile New York crime stories,
such as the 1989 Central Park jogger rape, the Amadou Diallo shooting,
and the Abner Louima assault, have escalated into racial and ideological
conflicts. This one hasn't. Why not? (EAIF-link)
Park Dissent II In response to Robert George's article. By William
Tucker, commentator on New York politics He spoke to National
Review's Lopez last week, which started this controversy.
I don't think I said the "wilding" problem is a matter of "blacks,
not just some blacks, but blacks in general." If my remarks can
be construed that way, then I apologize. But saying the majority
of violent crimes in New York City are committed by blacks and
Hispanics (a true fact) is not the same as saying the majority
of blacks and Hispanics - or even a small percentage - are violent
What I'm saying is that, once again, the New York Times and liberals
in general are bending over backwards to avoid the simple observation
that the young men who harassed and assaulted women in Central
Park were all blacks and Hispanics.
Moreover, if you took a count of all the incidents in the past
year when women and girls have been assaulted by gangs in public
places (swimming pools have become a favorite - it's called "whirling"),
you would again find that, almost without exception, black and
Hispanic young men are the perpetrators. Once again: This is not
to say that all black and Hispanic men indulge in this habit,
or even that more than an infinitesimally small percentage do.
But it is a black and Hispanic phenomenon. We can dredge up Glen
Ridge and Woodstock, or even the Rape of the Sabine Women for
that matter, but the fact that we have to go so far afield only
proves the point.

Al Sharpton delivered these words outside the trial of three youths

the "Central Park Jogger": "Those boys aren't guilty for what
happened to the jogger," Sharpton said. "This is just like the
old Scottsboro Boys case.
thugs puncture city's calm For almost a fortnight police

correctness goes wilding Wilding. The term, born of a
heinous gang rape and crippling attack by thugs on a young woman
jogging through Central Park a decade ago, comes back into common
usage to describe the appalling events that followed the Puerto
Rican National Day Parade this month in Manhattan. This recent
"wilding" event amounts to a milestone in the downward spiral
of what might once have been called American civilization. There
is no other way to look at the ease with which masses of milling,
young men, as nonchalant as they were brazen, attacked, stripped
and violated as many as 50 women. (EaglesUp-link)

"F- that, they bitches anyway." The officials said Camacho tore

SHAME OF CENTRAL PARK
Makes a Comeback The hesitation of police officers to
take action in Central Park seems a dreadful dereliction of duty.
But it should surprise no one. Facing a mob of young, mainly
black and Hispanic degenerates (it's the sad truth; just watch
the tape), what were the cops supposed to do? "We were told not
to do anything," one officer said to the Post. "They don't want
photos of altercations with minorities." He added: "It's very
frustrating when we're told to have our blinders on."
