Police Beat: The Caucasian from Black Diamond

Posted by on Mon, May 12, 2014 at 11:23 AM

This police report opens with this statement by Officer Benjamin Douglas...

I was working as uniformed patrol officer 3U03 in the city of Seattle, county of King, in a fully marked patrol vehicle with Officer Schroeder...

Douglas then informs us that he and his partner were dispatched to a report of harassment. When the two contacted the victim, they were informed that at approximately 2025 hrs, she was walking home from the University of Washington campus. As she neared 47 Brooklyn Ave NE, she observed a vehicle parked on the sidewalk. Finding this to be funny, the victim took a picture (presumably with her cellphone) to show her friends later. The car, however, was occupied by a "Caucasian female" (the suspect). The caucasian female "did not seem to find the fact that [the victim] took a picture of her vehicle funny." The caucasian ignited her engine and began following the victim. She turned into a parking lot, spotted the victim with her headlights, and accelerated. The victim had to jump out of the way of the car "to avoid being struck." The caucasian then yelled: "You bitch... When I see you next time I will beat you up." Not long after that pledge of harm, the victim returned home and called the police. Officer Douglas found that the license plate belonged to a vehicle whose address is "out of Black Diamond, Washington."

According to Wikipedia the racial makeup of Black Diamond is:

92.0% White, 1.2% African American, 0.7% Native American, 1.2% Asian, 0.3% Pacific Islander, 1.3% from other races, and 3.3% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.6% of the population.

Also, the main landmark of the city, which owes its birth to the Black Diamond Coal Mining Company of California, is a cemetery. The dead dreamers of yesterday.

Maybe rename Black Diamond to Blue-Eyed Devil Cubic Zirconium.

The real main landmark (and only reason to ever go to the town) is the Black Diamond Bakery.

Maybe Chuck could send some of his drive-by shooter friends to Black Diamond to live so as to "diversify" the community.

So, Charles, you had a quota to fill or something? I expect the info in your posts to be cherry-picked, and your conclusions contrived, but what are you even trying to say here?

"Recently, in the University District, a white person yelled at someone and tried to hit them with their car. This white person was a white person from a mostly white town. Also, coal is bad."

Was the victim Caucasian too? I can only assume so, because you went out of your way to point out how exceptionally white the suspect was. And you never neglect to mention whenever a victim is a POC.

Oh...and one other thing: There are also plans moving forward to restart the John Henry No.1 coal mine in Black Diamond as well.

Coal mining looks once again to be back in Black Diamond - and I think that's the best news in a long time.

So suck it!

The only thing Chuck is allowed to suck is the cock of his white, homo masters.

I used to live a block away from there.

Some crazy shit would go on in the Chevron parking lot and especially the parking lot on the north end of the block at 50th, Safeway and Jack in the Box.
An intersection of junkies, frat boys, and people like me just trying to get to the store to get some beer before 2am and without any fucking drama.

There isn't any actual news value in this story, Charles.

What does the racial makeup of Black Diamond have to do with the crime?

100% pointless. Why does anything in this post matter in any way? It seemed like, for a second, you were trying to make a point. Why not just make it? Are you trying to be edgy by hinting at the ethnic makeup of a certain town and then not drawing any conclusions?

Is this a thought experiment to see what conclusions readers would draw themselves? To see if someone would accuse you of reverse racism for mentioning what percentage of white people live in Black Diamond? To see how mad people would get because your post didn't make any sense?

I wish I got paid to smoke weed and write all my pointless thoughts on the blog of a prominent weekly.

@9 So you are compelled to write three paragraphs about the 100% pointlessness of the article? Somebody needs a life, and it isn't Mudede.
