WHERE’S NOW WHEN YOU NEED THEM? Texas: New Black Panther Leader Justifies Gang Rape of 11-Year-Old Hispanic Girl.

UPDATE: A reader emails:

I’m a Houstonian, and familiar with Quannell X. He is many things, not many of which I would admire. My sense of fairness and modesty requires me to defend him against the charges in your headline.

I had the opportunity to hear X on the radio yesterday. One of our conservative radio hosts, Michael Berry, had the man on to explain himself. The TRUE story is, as usual, more complex than the headline. Here is what I heard:

X believes that of the men arrested for the crime, a few are actually innocent, and weren’t even in the town on the days in question. X believes that there are others, not black men, who are also guilty of having victimized this girl over a longer period of time. He bases that accusation on things he has read from and about the girl.

He wants to make sure that ALL guilty parties are found, and brought to justice. He wants to make sure that any innocent men are released, and he wants to hold the community at large and the girl’s family a bit more up to public shame and questioning for not protecting this child. He wants to make law enforcement look BEYOND “gang of black boys raped Mexican girl” and see that a young girl was a victim of MANY men of different races, over a longer period of time.

He is IN NO WAY blaming the girl, or excusing the rapes, he wants the rapists prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Kinda odd for me to defend X, but truth is truth.

Well, I watched the video and read the story, but it wouldn’t be the first time a news account failed to capture the entire truth.
