I guess the F-word is the new N-word, at least in Massachusetts. A white man was arrested and charged with 4 hate crimes because he used the F-word while he was yelling at a black couple. The white man doesn’t appear to have said anything racist and he never physically assaulted the two black people and yet he’s looking at some serious felonies. If this seems confusing to you, I did mention it happened in a liberal state, so hopefully that explains things.
WHDH reports on this incident in Boston recently. A black woman who identified herself as NeNe Judge said she and her husband were out riding motorcycles when they decided to pull over and relax in front of white guy Paul Sheehan’s house. The white man thought the black couple were up to no good so he came out of his house and yelled at them.
Now here’s the entire incident that led to the white man’s arrest on hate crime charges:
An officer blocking traffic at the intersection of Adams and Chelmsford streets following a car crash about 10:30 p.m. intervened when he saw Sheehan screaming at a black man and a black woman who were sitting nearby on parked motorcycles, according to Boston police.
The officer said he heard Sheehan screaming “You (expletive) animals, shooting (expletive) in my neighborhood. I pay a mortgage, get the (expletive) out of my neighborhood. This is my (expletive) neighborhood.”
Seriously, that’s it. The news censored the expletives, but it’s pretty easy to figure out Sheehan used 4 F-bombs and maybe said “shit.”
What Sheehan didn’t use were any racial slurs. He didn’t say the N-word and he didn’t even yell “f*cking black people” which leftists consider a racial slur. He also didn’t physically attack the black couple or even threaten them with violence.
Sheehan sounds like he was being an asshole, but assholism isn’t grounds for arrest, let alone hate crime charges. If it were, 90% of the left would be in jail right now, because that is a big bunch of assholes on that side.
Despite the complete lack of a crime being committed, Sheehan was arrested and charged with 8 counts, including disorderly conduct and threatening to do bodily harm. A detective with the Boston PD’s Civil Rights Division, then tacked on 4 hate crime charges. I guess that’s one charge for every time he dropped an F-bomb.
In addition to the F-bomb now being a racial slur, this case establishes “get out of my f*cking neighborhood” as a threat to do bodily harm. I suspect that if the races were revered here, there would be exactly zero charges filed instead of the 8 the white guy is facing.
I also feel like we’re not getting the entire story about what these two black people were doing. It’s not like people in Boston have never seen a black person before. They must have been up to something other than just relaxing on their parked motorcycles to get this guy to come out and yell at them. Then again, maybe he really is just an asshole, which as I pointed out, isn’t illegal.
