DENVER (CBS4) – Police are asking for the public’s help tracking down a large group of violent teenagers.

They say 10 to 15 young people — described as black or Hispanic and both male and female — attacked four white men on the 16th Street Mall at about 10:45 p.m. on Sunday.

Denver police say the men were standing on the mall near Arapahoe when they were approached by the group. After a conversation, the group turned violent and they attacked the men.

Two of the four victims left the scene before they could be questioned. The Denver Post reported that two of the victims suffered minor injuries.

“It’s really unclear as to what their motivation was — why such a large group of young people came together and assaulted these individuals,” said Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson.

Authorities say the attacks could have been gang related or racially motivated.

“We’re not going to dismiss anything in this case because we don’t know,” Jackson told CBS4.

In 2009 a similar series of attacks took place near downtown, on the 16th Street Mall and in surrounding areas. The victims were usually white or Hispanic and the suspects were black. Surveillance video captured one of the attacks on camera.

Many of those arrested in connection with the assaults were known to have ties with street gangs. Police said some or all of those attacks may have a kind of gang initation.

Police will confirm that in this weekend’s case the victims were not robbed, which narrows down the list of motives somewhat.

Police are asking anyone who has more information about the attacks, including the two victims who walked off, to come forward. They also want to interview anyone who witnessed the attack.

There is a $2,000 Crimestoppers reward for information that helps solve the case.

    Carry a gun at all times to defend yourself and your friends/family against the savagery of the subhuman mud people if you are unfortunate enough to live in a part of the country where they congregate in large numbers (typically urban areas with a comfortable amount of welfare money available for them to leech off of).

    Most of you think this is new, or has something to do with Obama, because of the general media black out on hate crimes against whites over the past 40 years. But if you analyze the FBI crime reports (at least until they stopped recording this sort of information, and declared all Hispanics “white”) you’ll see that non-whites violently attack whites with extreme frequency. The only place you’ll find this information is on “racist” websites because the main stream media refuses to acknowledge the rampant racism and hate crimes committed by non-whites.

    Man is an inherently tribal creature and non-whites want to murder you because you are white. Period. Diversity is failed experiment and multi-culturalism is tantamount to cultural suicide, the suicide of Western civilization. Acknowledge this fact and be prepared to defend yourself at all times.

    Or be another victim.

    Please educate those who operate in gangs that use of deadly force is legal when there is a “disparity of force”. Multiple attackers with no perceived weapons can legally be shot! And, will be!

    Ever since Obama has been President the country is more divided than ever before. Obama is following the teachings of his hero’s, Saul Alinsky and Cloward–Piven on how to divide and destroy the United States of America.
    History if America survives will show how this tratior now in the White House almost hopefully tried to bring down one of the greatest nations the world has ever known.

    Malcolm

    Welcome to the Un-United States of New Africa (comprised of wild blacks, hispanics, and africanized whites)!! God is clearly telling America in a hundred different ways that He is angry with America — America doesn’t want Him, His Son, His Church, or His law so now America can see what the Bible means when it says “all nations that forget God shall be turned into hell.” -Psalm 9:17 We can expect more savage tribalism in the coming years. Americans will ride this toboggin all the way to the bottom because they are truly hell bent on being hell bent.

  16. Anna D says:

    It’s obvious this is a race-based hate crime. These rabid animals need to be treated as such.

  17. Steve Savage "King of the Beasts" says:

    The White Man became the dominant race on this planet because he is the most dangerous of all predators, having either reduced or eliminated all opposition to his security by whatever means required to achieve what he is convinced is his Manifest Destiny. He has sliced up Africa like a piece of cake, interned indigenous people on reservations, created target specific diseases to anonymously eradicate and/or cull what he euphemistically calls “The Herd.” His greatest ally, his asset, as it were, is fear because he hates what he fears and will do whatever it takes to eliminate that which threatens his existence. I’m afraid that by this Wolf Pack behavior of the Blacks, which appears to be metastasizing and escalating, that they have taken the first steps to placing themselves first in a FEMA Camp, and ultimately, on the endangered species list.

    This case is a complete mystery. Police need help to figure this one out.

      There is absolutely nothing mysterious about packs of blacks attacking whites. I am just simply wondering, what if a gorup of racist whites waited at a public place such as a mall and if they were to be attacked or would witness such an attack what they would do…:)

  19. manup says:

    Most of you idiots responding to this horrible tragedy with racism can’t be more than 13 years old mentally. Can’t believe mature adults would be spewing this mess…and you probably claim to be Christians. There are wild youth all over this country terrorizing others…not just black kids. At least in this case, the white guys walked away with minor injuries. In Mississippi, white teens sought out a black man, ran him over with their truck and murdered him. But most of you will probably say he deserved it. How can we say America doesn’t continue to reek with racism and read comments such as the ones listed here? How do you sleep with a heart filled with hatred? You must be atheists, no one who truly believes in and knows God could continue to be so wicked!

    1. Renfield says:

      Black-on-white crime is 100 times white-on-black crime, manup. Every single “flash mob” attack has been black on white. Your anecdote doesn’t cut it. The truth is not racist.

    2. whitey fight back resist.com says:

      Thankfully I saw the light and became an atheist and dropped that white guilt christian jew loving religion. You use one case in Mississippi where two white teens sought out a black man to kill while you probably don’t know anything about Shannon Christian and Christopher Newsom of Knoxville, TN who were absolutely brutally raped and murdered by a group of blacks. How can you white christians sleep at night knowing your race is being brutalized while you lie in bed in the safety of your own home, just remember that each day whites are robbed, beaten, and raped by the hundreds. Don’t believe me? Look at rape statistics. Man I really hope that some white men will look at my name.

    I used to be race oriented then I grew up. When 9-11 happened we were all american. Brothers of every color came together to answer the call. Right or wrong for that instant we were truly indivisible. Crime is a problem in every state of this union. To blame a race,or a culture is narrow minded. Put it on where it belongs. which is on the criminal. Blacks blame whites for slavery. whites blame blacks for crimes. And latino’s can’t get a break from either side. In fighting among non criminals only serve the criminals. London riots. Easy how something righteous turned so twisted. Think about it.

    1. Renfield says:

      I will indeed place blame on a culture that exalts violence, promiscuity, and ignorance. Do you really think that all cultures are equal? The culture of the headhunters of the Amazon basin is just as worthy as the culture of the ancient Greeks or Egyptians? Urban black ghetto culture is equal to the culture of the Italian Renaissance?

      1. generic mann says:

        You can spin The words how ever you choose to promote your agenda. You claim you want peace,but only through violence. I’m no longer a race hater and It feels good. I still have no sympathy for criminals and gangs. Protecting my family is job #1. These same criminals probably used that Renfield excuse to justify what they were doing. Think about it.

  22. CA reader says:

    I cannot believe the racist comments that are posted here! They have slandered every single race on the planet.

    The only one who made a thoughtful comment was Craig L. I agree with him wholeheartedly. Fathers do not get the recognition and respect that they deserve. Our whole society would be a lot more peaceful and prosperous if we understood the importance of fathers in child rearing. My husband and I were both raised by single parents, so we know how brutal life is for kids from broken homes. And these days, the parents don’t even bother to get married in the first place!

    The whole purpose of marriage is to create an environment in which kids can grow into healthy, productive adults. Society must put a premium on couples getting married and staying married. A return to Biblical values will create peace and prosperity. But first we must read the Bible ourselves instead of relying on what others say about it. Church doctrine (like bigotry) often contradicts the Bible. Biblical illiteracy is a big problem in this country.

    But plowing through the Bible is a big chore. Therefore, society must also place a big premium on scholarship.

    1. whitey fight back resist.com says:

      Hey moron different races can NEVER leave together under the same government in peace, no matter what your Jew bible says. In Africa black women also have many illegitimate children and black Africans are now over a billion strong, we can thank the White Guilt Christian church for providing food and housing for those animals, when if anything they should be providing condoms for them if they truly cared about humanity and Gods green Earth.

  23. Audra says:

    The motive is not unclear to those who have been following recent trends in news.

    If it were a large group of white kids attacking a small group of black men, no one would hesitate in assigning a motive to the attack.

  24. David says:

    ” 10 to 15 young people — described as black or Hispanic and both male and female — attacked four white men on the 16th Street ”

    ..and the headline reads ” motive unclear? ”

    It seems quite clear to me. Hopefully all of these animals will be convicted of a hate crime.

  25. Joe says:

    This is what happens when a civilization is forced to integrate monkeys into itself. When non-inventive monkeys become equal to thinking human beings who have a history of technological advancements, there will be a downward slide in that society. I say, give these hoop-shooting animals a load of bananas and ship their rapping a**es back to wherever jungle they came from.

  28. Turd Ferguson says:

    “Unclear motive” my foot! It was because they were white, pure and simple. I predict that one day it will be illegal to be a free, white, straight, land-owning, voting male in this country. I also believe that one day it will be illegal for these same males to reproduce. If you notice all the new “progressive” shows being produced, general the “strong” leaders are either black men or white women. Subliminally, I believe this conditions white women to believe that black men are their TRUE partners, because in many episodes, black men can ALWAYS relate to how the white woman feels, but the dumb schmuck white male hasn’t a clue. This is by design folks! So tonight, sit back, and watch you a nice big helpin’ of propaganda when you turn on your televisions.

  30. Blake S. Davis says:

    White, black or Latino, you have to be either insane or brainwashed to vote Democrat. Look at what the Democrats have done to the black community – if you are Latino do you really want YOUR community to turn out like that? You want your children to grow up in one child homes in the middle of a gang controlled ghetto?

    Latinos – wake up, vote Republican and at least have a chance of growing up without broken families and crime. Or vote Democrat, take the Democrat poison, and you too can be where blacks are now after 50 years of Democrat control.

    And wake up black people – your so-called friends are really your enemies, even if they are black. They have only loyalty to the party and your community could stay in misery.

    1. Frank says:

      The system failed us. Republicans only see one thing: These whites cry about being attacked and yet their kind sends military forces around the world, invade it, build their resorts and keep the local minorities out of their hotels, golf-courses, and lodges. Many of these people are Republicans. Democrats, are crooked and seem to build bigger government. The Tea Party is only a movement of White Republican people created to separate themselves from ‘Non-White’ Republicans. Let’s face it, Whites (not all, but the Majority) dislike non-Whites unless they are good athletes, rappers, or porn stars. I myself love capitalism, but I work to build a Racist-Free Capitalist society on the Internet because most Whites don’t want to see me, or any other SPICS in their world. They can keep it, the Internet is the new Paradise and that’s where I live. One day the Internet will Unite all Nations, one day the Internet will have an International Economy, and ONE International Political Party Guaranteeing the Rights and Liberties to all Productive Citizens who desire Freedom from Tyranny, Oppression, and Now Racism! And no I don’t hate Whites or any Race, I just detest those who want to monopolize “Rights and Freedom”, I detest those who do what they can to keep me as an “Outsider”.

    Obama set the stage for racial inspired violence by jumping to the immediate conclusion that the police were guilty of racial discrimination in arresting his Harvard professor buddy, and by disallowing the sentencing of guilty New Black Panthers that intimidated white voter at the polls. This part of the design of building his army, along with Hoffa’s thugs.

    And now the New Black Panthers are declaring war on Whites at a rally in Harlem. goggle the video.

  42. Banderman says:

    Cowards; these kind of violent thugs can never go man on man. It takes a gang of thugs to spread their racist hatred and racial hypocrisy. I wonder if Holder and Obama will prosecute this as a ‘hate crime’? They seem to be part of the problem instead of manning up and protecting the civil rights of all Americans. Where are these ‘great civil rights’ leaders? One will notice these so-called civil rights leaders only protect the civil rights of their own racial group; they never protect the civil rights of Caucasians. This is the quintessential definition of racial hypocrisy.

  43. Constance says:

    How come these underprivileged minorities can’t take on people one to one? Why does there need to be a huge crowd against a few white people every time? I thought all these “gangstas” were tougher than tough, wearing their pants around their butt cracks and swaggering around owning the place? Well then? Take on somebody one to one. Step on out there – give it a go. This looks quite pansy to me. Very weak. Perhaps there is a fear that the gangsta might be kicked straight out of these punks. It’s easy to be brave in a crowd.

  44. Chippy55 says:

    If you will read the history of slavery you will see that Lincoln’s Cabinet decided that they could solve the problem by sending the slaves back to their homelands. Some went, others chose to stay. They won’t teach you this in Government run schools run by Liberals because then they can’t make blacks victims. Liberals always have to make people victims, make them appear unable to work for themselves, hence welfare. People like Pelosi do not care if blacks want to improve their lives, just keep saying that you are a victim, and she will provide for you, and Harry Reid is the same way, that’s why you have 99 weeks (and growing) unemployment benefits. Just keep voting for the Liberals, that’s why there are only 50% of Americans who work now.

  45. JeddMcHead says:

    Silvio – you are a TOOL if you think “race” isn’t THE factor in these attacks. This isnt about “youth” but about BLACK and HISPANIC youth, you coward!

  46. Frank Denee says:

    There aren’t any “flash mobs” comprised solely of white people roving the streets looking for non-white victims.

    There aren’t any news stories being edited in order to hide the identities of white criminals in the name of Political Correctness.

    There aren’t any non-whites crying about their children being beaten and worse by a bunch of blood-thirsty white people.

    They say they are anti-racist,but they`re always arguing against white interests and for white genocide.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    I know, let’s legalize the 12 to 15 million hispanics that are here illegally! That will make them love us! :)

    The gubment has been saying there are about 12 million illegals in this country and have been saying this for about 15 years. They are lying!
