I'm calling this as another fake hate crime.

Notice this group seems to have lots of video cameras going, yet there's NO VIDEO of
- A noose
- The "confederate hat"
- The white people using racial slurs
- The moment where the black man was attacked. They only show the end when he was being held by multiple whites. Note his story said "they followed us again, then started yelling at us again, and then jumped him from behind". Of course, there's no video of this.
- The moment where they jumped on his "neck", the oh so conveniently temporally symbolic detail.

I can understand the possibility that racial slurs were used at the very beginning before any cameras were rolling, and then they went on good behavior after that point, but I don't buy it. Throughout the video, they seem to keep saying over and over that the black dude instigated the encounter. It did seem like the black man was egging them on subtly, and was enjoying the film footage. But I guess we'll see as more info comes out - maybe some claims are real, and others were embellished.

I also don't really buy the whole "racial slur = racist" explanation. Sometimes I do depending on how things play out, but people get angry, and start saying things to hurt and make their opponent angry. It doesn't necessarily mean the event was motivated by racism.

The "victims" recount of the event

I don’t want to recount this, but I was almost the victim of an attempted lynching. I don’t want this to have happened to me or anyone. It hurts my soul, and my pride, but there are multiple witnesses and it can’t be hidden or avoided,” said Booker.

The site is the location, opposite of Cutright Recreation Area along Ind. 446 is near the site of the former Zoom Floom water slide, which was once billed as the longest concrete water slide in the entire Midwest.

In documentation posted to Facebook Booker described the ordeal, “On our way into the park we (a friend and I) encountered a large white male (seemingly drunk) wearing an oversized hat with a confederate flag print on it. We were polite and continued on even though the encounter felt awkward. We noticed he began following us in an ATV, and we stopped as he drove up behind us and then stated we were on private property. We relayed to him that we believed the organizers had received permission from the property owners to cross, but apologized and went on to our beautiful site just off the water without any further incident. When we arrived we told the event organizer of the encounter and it was relayed that the individual wasn’t the actual property owner and the organizer apologized.

Even still, we advised our folks still in route to use the public beach way to avoid any possible conflict arising. We later found out that these individuals had blocked off the public beach way with a boat and their ATVs claiming that it was also their land. When folks tried to crossed they yelled, “white power” at them. Honestly, we thought it might just be the one drunken individual with the confederate hat we had encountered earlier who might be instigating the conflict. We decided to just walk back and attempt to simply have a conversation with some of the more sober seeming group members and see if we could smooth things over a bit. We were calm and polite, but looking back now, it’s apparent that these individuals began targeting our group the moment they saw myself, a Black man and were looking to provoke a conflict.

The individuals were calm for a moment then quickly became aggressive, and we started to simply leave. Rather than go back on the public beach they angrily indicated for us to use the trail, so we complied, and (friend and I) started walking away from them back to our site. A short moment later they began following us yelling. Two of them jumped me from behind and knocked me to the ground. I tussled with the two and another one joined in, then two more. The five were able to easily overwhelm me and got me to the ground and dragged me pinning my body against a tree as they began pounding on my head and ripped off some of my hair, with several of them still on top of my body holding me down. They held me pinned and continued beating me for several minutes seemingly become more and more enraged as they kept trying to seriously injure me and failing. At one point during the attack one of the men jumped on my neck. I could feel both his feet and his full bodyweight land hard against my neck.

At this point the commotion and the sounds one of the men’s young teenage daughter screaming for her father and the others to let me go started attracting more people, (most whom I didn’t know) who started attempting to intervene. The attackers told the growing group, “we’re going to break his arms” (while literally attempting to bend my arms behind me) and then stated to the members of their party several times to, “get a noose”, amongst some other choice slurs. With me still pinned underneath them they kept telling onlookers to leave the, “boy” and that everyone else (all white) could go. Folks then started filming the confrontation, and shouting that they wouldn’t leave me to be killed.

I knew it. The black guy is an activist. I bet he baited these men. Jussy Smollett style tactics.
