Idaho skinhead knocked out by victim, faces hate crime

9 Dec

Who feels bad for self-proclaimed skinhead Daren C. Abbey? Nobody? The whole blatant racism thing not doing it for you?

A self-proclaimed skinhead from north Idaho endured quite possibly the most embarrassing thing a skinhead could ever endure. On July 3, Daren C. Abbey approached Marlon L. Baker inside J.D.’s bar in Bayview and told him he didn’t belong in the bar or in town because he’s black. According to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department report, “Baker stated Abbey told him ‘blacks’ were not welcome in Bayview and he had better leave before something happened.” Abbey then poked Baker in the chest.

That maybe wasn’t the smartest idea.

Baker, obviously feeling threatened at all of this, “instinctively” punched Abbey in the face, knocking him out cold. Just like that. After he woke up, Abbey told Baker that if he behaved himself around the whites everything would be cool and he would be allowed to stay in Bayview. Wow. Furthermore, when he was being arrested, he said “What, you’re arresting the white man?”

That probably didn’t help.

On Thursday, Abbey agreed to be sentenced on a felony charge of malicious harassment, Idaho’s hate crime law, because of, you know, all the racist threats and stuff. It should be mentioned that although Abbey is currently living in north Idaho, he isn’t a native, he’s a transient from Sacramento. So don’t go being all “Idaho is full of violent skinheads, blah blah.” We only have some skinheads who only live here temporarily. Their racism thing clearly isn’t very effective anyway.

    Skinhead by choice?? I don’t get it. Not college material for sure.

    I really despise the way these ignorant racist fools refer to themselves as ‘Skinheads’ – They aren’t! They are just racists pure and simple!

    I have been a skinhead since 1979 and never once has the ugly beast of racism raised it’s head amongst either my friends or myself. The original skinheads resulted from an amalgamation of the original London ‘Hard Mods’ and the immigrant Jamaican population.

    These thugs need to learn the history of the skinhead sub-culture and go back to wearing pillow cases over their heads.

    That said, it is a shame that more of them don’t get knocked out!
