DENVER – Police believe a series of violent attacks in downtown Denver between July 17 and September 20 of this year were motivated by racial hatred of white people by the black suspects.
Explosive new information revealed today, in the arrest warrants issueed to nearly three dozen gang members accused in a series of attacks in the LoDo area. Police say the attacks have occurred over the last four months, involving numerous victims, some of whom were beaten severely and seriously injured.
Arrest affidavits released by the Denver Police Department show a pattern of racially charged statements by the attackers preceding most of the attacks.
According to the documents, the suspects told police they specifically targeted white men, they called “crackers”. They would approach a victim saying things like “it smells like white people” and “i hate (expletive) white people.” The suspects told police they felt two black gangs “owned” sections of LoDo near The Bash nightclub and wanted to beat up white men in that area to teach them not to come downtown unless they “brought their friends for protection.’
Many of the suspects were blunt in their motivations when they were interviewed by detectives.
