Bobby J Blythe Encourages Black Belt Willie J Dennis to Beat A Man to Death – Literally
NOTE: Go to Justice4KungFuGuy for the latest news on this story.
I watched the video without any audio due to my surroundings and judging by the comments on Reddit it was the ‘best’ way of watching it. The video shows a black man duped into being beaten by a karate black belt student. It was apparently shot in December 1984 and it beings slowly with the victim showboating until the kicks and punches start to take effect. In particular, it looks like it’s a right elbow that first knocks him to the ground. At this point the victim tries to stop the fight repeatedly but all to no avail.
The dojo master then pushes the student to finish the fight and it ends badly with the guy on the floor and receiving too stomps to the head and neck. There is some stomach-sickening wheezing heard and a pool of blood quickly forms under the guys head who lies their motionless. He’s then dragged across the dojo floor and allegedly dumped in a dumpster in the back alley.
If ever something good is to come out of this it will be through the media picking up this story and forcing somebody to investigate. Did he really die? Who were in this video? It seems Bobby Joe Blythe and Willie J Dennis play the roles of master and student but where is the justice?
If it wasn’t for the student being black, they would say it was a lynching. Mindless brutality, caught on video, bragged about and traded like a Baseball card and everybody gets away with it. Somebody please tell me there is some goodness in the world. Where are the BBC and CNN when you need them?
UPDATE1: Somebody on Reddit reports that the matter has now been referred to Washington DC’s Cold Cases department for investigation. I wonder if an address for the crime scene can be found online, or the neighbouring NAPA store as it implies the employees closed early to watch the show. They would all now seem to be complicit in the murder of this young man – who wants to squeal first?
UPDATE2: It seems that Bullshido is collecting the most information and may have been the original source of this article.
UPDATE3: KMPH, Hanford’s local news, broadcast a story about the case. See this post.
UPDATE4: A new mini-site, Justice4KungFuGuy, has been created to catch the perpetrators.
