CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WLS) --

The ABC7 I-Team is reporting a rash of random attacks near the University of Illinois flagship campus. A safety alert for students was posted after Champaign police say five students were jumped and beaten by a roving gang over the weekend.

One-by-one early Saturday morning, a gang of men attacked several people as they walked down streets near the U of I campus. For about an hour, the gang roamed a small section of Champaign and police say they targeted random victims, beating them to the ground, in what resembles a big city gang ritual.

The beat-downs took place between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Saturday, with five victims at four different locations near the U of I campus.

Even though it was overnight, the attacks took place on residential streets and there were witnesses.

Police say a group of six to eight men battered innocent victims as they walked on these streets. The targets were random and they were attacked for no apparent reason, according to police, thrown to ground and kicked in the head and body.

Some victims told police the attackers had jumped from vehicles; a cell phone was stolen. There were no life-threatening injuries, but three people were treated for facial wounds, cuts and bruises.

While police here have posted an alert for last weekend's attacks, crime records reveal there were at least three similar unprovoked muggings the previous Saturday - among 45 assaults in the area since October 1.

Investigators describe the attacks as black males, 25 years old, and each wearing dark clothing, possibly driving in a blue sedan or SUV.

While police have not publicly identified suspects or a motive for the mob violence, random-victim beatings are consistent with some street gang initiations.

A 2008 Champaign police report charted the rise of local gangs downstate - all of them either considered Chicago gang satellite operations or stand-alone groups that would self-align with Chicago gangs.

In some cases police say the mob of men just quietly attacked unsuspecting victims, and went about kicking and beating them. On a couple of occasions victims said they were first verbally threatened or asked for something by one of the attackers.

Highlighting that this incident concerns black perpetrators in the way that lib does racist? How could that possibly be true? It's just another story he got off the interwebs, no baiting, no racism, just telling things how they are.

If 0bola had a son, would they look like these fine thug specimens occupying human flesh for no apparent reason?

If Marvin would have posted it, it would have been just another thug story. LIB posting it makes it racist. Noted.

If I posted it, I would have left off the comment about black children. It's a generalization that isn't accurate.

Well it was accurate for those kids, just not all black kids.

I worked an upper middle class black wedding yesterday. Lots of well spoken , successful black people who had very well behaved kids. The bride and groom left in a new Porsche 911, and I got to take all the bridesmaids to the reception.

I'm told if I brought up race it's baiting. Why is it allowed?

There is no generalization here marvin. Just in your mind. That story in louisville

Trial to begin in racially motivated mob attack in Louisville

From WLKY.com…

Must be a generalization also ... Where is holder on this story.... I forgot the term cracker just a term of endearment. Just move along nothing to see here.

In just a matter of weeks, a man beaten and robbed in an area park will come face to face with one of the men he says attacked him.

According to police, the suspect was a juvenile at the time. But, the courts said Brejon Ford will now be tried as an adult when he goes to trial Sept. 9.

It was at Okolona Park on April 12, 2013, when he went for a walk. He said the park was empty around 5 that evening when a group of young, black men were making their way to him.

“They were yelling ‘honky’ and ‘white boy,’ ‘cracker’ and ‘white trash,'” said Rountree.

He was beaten and knocked unconscious; doctors later discovered bleeding on the brain. The group, Rountree said, took his two cellphones and the $22 he had in his pocket.

“I believe they might have thought I looked like I was an easy target because I’m white, because they were calling me racial names,” said Rountree.

That bleeding on the brain ... sounds like attempted murder...

Personally I think the whole idea of baiting is stupidity. How can one post be baiting but another not be. Almost every thread started here is started to express a view point that is contrary to some other members view points, and is designed to start a debate.

Obvious this thread is bating, is it not. Not to point a finger at LIB, all the threads you start about some black guy arrested for this or that are also baiting. By the same token almost every thread I have ever started here, that is not a goof off thread is also a bating thread. Same goes for the deniers who start threads defending Obama or threads started by the RWNJ's attacking him.

Show me 3 consecutive threads that are not baiting.

That is why when a thread is shut down for bating, in my eye's it is a personal reaction by a mod to a subject they really don't like. That having been said, I would be cool if it was shut down for stupidity, but let's jsut be honest. If you shut down every baiting post the whole forum would have to be torched.
