Family Afraid Bullying Will Turn Into Bullets

(Memphis) A Memphis mother is out on bond, accused of helping her teen daughter beat up a 15-year-old girl.

Police say Angela Thomas led a whole group of teenagers to the 15-year-old's house and even joined in on the attack, which also hurt the girl's father.

The Crane family, who lives in the Berclair neighborhood, says they are living in fear of not knowing what could happen next after being attacked by eight teenage girls and a mother.

Billy Crane's 15-year-old daughter has a black eye and a busted lip.

“The mother runs up and is cussing me in my face and at the time, the little kids just ran around and up in the house,” said Crane. “I was stunned. I was like what? In my house? Then the mama followed in behind them.”

Police say Thomas joined in on the beating of the 15-year-old.

Billy says he struggled to get her and the rest of girls out of his house.

“I got scratches all over my neck and back.”

Billy says after the girls beat up his daughter, they came outside and one of them grabbed a brick and threw it at him.

“I saw it out it of the corner of my eye, a brick coming and just tried to dodge it.”

The brick hit him in the arm, leaving a yellowing bruise.

Billy says this violence Thursday evening came after weeks of his daughter being bullied at Kingsbury High School.

He's even reported Thomas’s daughter to police for the torment, but Billy says nothing was done.

Now his 15-year-old is sleeping in the middle of the house, away from windows, because he is afraid bullets will be next.

”When they were leaving, they were saying they were going to shoot the house up, so now I am worried about that. How do you protect your kids against getting shot?”

Thomas got out of jail Sunday by paying a $15,000 bond.

Police haven't said whether any of the juveniles were arrested for the attack.

Kingsbury administrators say they had no reports of the bullying, but plan to look into it.

    With all the hype about diversity being touted we should be ARMPIT deep in UTOPIA by now, but empty promises from elitists about multiculturalism have left our schools, cities, and society in ruins.

    The media has created an illusion that African Americans are the ones who will return your lost dog, hand you your wallet when you drop it, and are so cool compared to nerdy White people. It is on about every commercial now in case you have not noticed.

    As important as not playing with fire or looking both ways to cross the street; parents should be teaching their children to ALWAYS stay away from African Americans.

    Keeping your kids alive is far more important than being told you’re a racist, bigot or not Christian for avoiding multicultural enrichment.
    Innocent, unsuspecting, and hopelessly naive Whites are mugged, raped and murdered each day.

    The African Americans are becoming much more violent each year. Law Enforcement seems to insure the criminals’ rights are upheld far more than arresting obvious criminals. Think about your loved ones; Death is a high price to pay for an incorrect assessment of Black Crime.

    In conclusion; the tsunami of violent crime, squalor, and bankruptcy in our cities, schools, and society gives tremendous credibility to those who first opposed integration.

      Most serial killers are low to middle class white males as are most child molestors. Should one hide their children from white males too?

  • Logic and Reason

    According to the FBI most serial killers and child molesters are white males. Perhaps they shouldn’t be allowed around children. Lock your doors and lets keep them away from parks and daycares!

    People like it or not…Bob got it right. I am a black female, over 50 and I see it everyday. People please stop hating on commenters such as Bob for telling the truth. Truth hurts. I can expect some backlash because i am black, but just as all blacks are not criminals, on welfare….etc. I am neither. Nor am i going out stealing, taking care of grown as men, none of that. BOB got it right. Deal with it.

    What an angry little imbecile you are. It’s “your time”? It’s been “your time” since President Kennedy introduced the concept of affirmative action in 1961 and what have people like you (not all African-Americans, just idiots like you personally) done with it? Absolutely nothing. The black community has seen an exponential rise in illiteracy, illegitimacy, crime, and poverty, despite being given equal (and sometimes preferential) access to education and employment–and it’s all because of people like you. As a member of a mixed family, fools like you p*ss me off because fools like you are the ones trying to convince the black community that violence and victimhood are the answers when nothing could be further from the truth.

    Oh, and let me throw a little math your way as far as your threats about all the violence black people will soon do to whites. (Don’t worry, it won’t be hard–it’s obvious you wouldn’t be able to handle anything too difficult if your grammar skills are any indication of your math skills.) According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as of 2012, whites accounted for 63% of the U.S. population, Hispanics or Latinos made up 16.9%, and blacks were only 13.1%. Now, in simple terms this means people like you ARE OUTNUMBERED. If you throw interracial families like mine into the mix, that’s going to make it even more difficult for nitwits like you, because we will defend ALL of our family and friends, no matter what their ethnicity is or what the ethnicity of their attackers might be.

    Get some therapy, lose the hate, and work to lift your community up, not bring it down.

    I was going to enter a comment, witty and elegant; for why the father should have defended his home with lethal force.

    After Zimmerman, Whites have let themselves be convinced that it is racist merely to object to dispossession, much less to work for their own interests. Never before has a people been fooled into thinking that there was virtue or nobility in surrendering its heritage and giving away to others its place in history, only whites have been tricked into thinking that love for their own people is somehow “hatred” of others.

    White Homeland! Northwest Front!

    i know about the 13% stats and people like me are outnumbered but so f…..g what.half of you are scared to fight.some of you are elderly and sick (btw the elderly and sick won’t be harmed, im not that heartless) a lot of you are just sitting ducks.i don’t see people like you checking whites when their ignorant selfs call us ni66er on forums and youtube etc etc…it’s easy for you to say.your heritage hasn’t been tampered all wasn’t forced here and cut off from your people and all wasn’t forced to work, got beaten, got raped, got lynched.america was established off the hard work black people did for them long time ago.we have been damaged in a way that we may never recover’s actually white people that shaped and formed the ”ignorant” black people you see didn’t happen took have no idea what it is like being black.

    first off little kid it’s food stamps not foo stams.second it’s not actually stamps anymore it’s a card.learn how to spell if you want anyone to take you seriously….power rangers is about to come along little kid.hush when grown folks are talking.

  • Mr. Rational

    Ah, yes,  WT gave you decades of welfare, decades of Affirmative Action in both education and employment, decades of minority business set-asides, decades of forcible integration of schools and neighborhoods, and… “WT got it coming to ’em”?

    George Zimmerman (who isn’t even White) got beat for asking a stranger his business in HIS neighborhood… and Zim had it coming to him, for defending himself?

    People like you are why I carry a loaded firearm every time I step out of my house, and sometimes when I’m in it.  A bunch of Africans-in-America who decide “WT got it coming to ’em” who come to MY house are going to leave in ambulances if they’re lucky, but I’ll do my best to make sure they are in body bags.  If you are going to make me fear for my life in MY OWN HOME, I am not going to let you make a second attempt.

  • Logic and Reason

    Mr. Rational,

    A rational person would tell you to use spell and word check prior to submitting comments. But alas, this comments section doesn’t appear to have that which explains your comments.

    Please explain the fact that most child molesters and serial killers are white males. In fact white males make up a disproportionate share of these criminals.
