Black teens rob, run over elderly White man

Black teens rob, run over elderly White man

Grant J. Kidney, January 12, 2018-

An elderly man is left with a broken pelvis and other numerous injuries after being robbed and run over by four Baltimore ‘teens’.

The horrific incident occurred in early January when 69 year old Jim Willinghan was violently attacked by three black teenagers who stole Mr. Willinghan’s wallet at gun point and then proceeded to run over his body using Willinghan’s own car.

The incident occurred as Willinghan was retrieving an item from the trunk of his Buck LeSabre. At 10:30am, two cars were reported as having sped past Willinghan, only to turn around and drive at full speed in Willinghan’s direction. Three armed teens then emerged from their cars and ordered Mr. Willinghan to give up his wallet and keys.

According to police reports, after threatening to shoot Mr. Willinghan, one of the teens got into Willinghan’s car and backed it in to the 69 year old victim.

“I just don’t understand the reasoning,” Jim’s wife Barbara Willinghan told a local news affiliate. “I mean my husband complied. Why would you want to beat the poor man half to death. The detective said he’s lucky to be alive.”

A GoFundMe page has been created for Mr. Willinghan to help alleviate some of the costs associated with medical treatment in wake of the horrific attack.

One of the teens was charged with attempted murder. The others were charged with armed carjacking, armed robbery, first degree assault, second degree assault and theft.

As unfortunate as Jim Willinghan’s situation is, the reality is that similar black on White assaults happen on almost a daily basis with little to no attention from the mainstream press.

One could only imagine the outrage if Willinghan was black and his attackers, White.
