White Man Who Punched 11-Yr-Old Black Girl In The Face Avoids Jail Time

David Steven Bell, who is 51-years-old, 6’5 and 250 pounds, won’t spend a single day in jail after punching an 11-year-old black girl in the face and knocking her to the ground.

Bell was arrested earlier this year for the incident, which was caught on camera. Instead of jail time for the assault, Bell was convicted of two misdemeanors and received a 6o-day suspended sentence. He will also be on unsupervised probation for 12 months and will have to pay a court fee of $200.

Bell will also have to take anger management classes and participate in a “racial justice workshop” for the next 90 days.

A Citizens Times report from January said that Bell claimed he was trying to defend a woman who was being harassed by a “large pack of youths” at the Asheville Mall. According to Bell’s lawyer, he is undergoing long-term treatment for a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. Video of the incident was widely shared on social media.

Watch the full video of the incident below:

Had that been your child (assuming you’re a father who’s active and cares), maybe that young lady would have been just that- a lady- and not assaulting a giant ass man and trying to throw hands like a damn boxer!

All across America the message is repeated, loudly and clearly over and over again..Any white person be they a cop, a security guard, a so called bounty hunter, of a self appointed neighborhood watchman can inflict any amount of harm or physical violence against a black person of any age or degree of infirmity, justify doing so, and get a free pass from the so-called justice system. And feel free to miss me with the “black on black” justification paradigm. It has always been this way in the US long before so called “thug life” or “gangsta culture” evolved. If all black people became saints tomorrow, it wouldn’t change. America will always have an excuse for this kind of behavior, and plenty of people falling in line to back up the excuses.

Speak. He attacked a MINOR. He should be doing time; however, that medical paperwork saved his behind from jail.

Minors can kill too. IJS She got knocked out and the rest of them dispersed. Maybe he taught her something her parents didn’t.

I’m so confused by the confusion here. These “marganilized” groups are not immune or untouchable to cause/effect, reaping and sowing. You can see it right here in the video.

She got knocked out cold.

Way too old to be behaving like this.

Basically a group of rowdy cockroaches trying to attack and assault a lion. How else should this have ended??

Her absent father and shit single mother didn’t teach her differently, but I bet that left hook did.

That’s life.

Gravity, biology, science doesn’t care about your entitlements or fee-fees.

Race and age are non-factors. Rowdy young adults acting up got put in their place. Why is this a problem?

Bet every last one of y’all crying injustice would be singing a different song if this was you or yours being harrssed and attacked by this classless hood rats.

Agree Scott, a bunch of girls surrounding the man, being aggressive toward him (putting their hands on him) he knocks out one, they all disperse. I think he did right….. one of them couldve easliy had a weapon.

I’m sorry, I missed the part where we she screamed “I’m raised by a single mother.” Anyone else see that part? If so do you mind telling me timestamp? 🤔

Some of these young kids (black and white) don’t know how to act out in public. The young girl and her friends surrounded this guy (kinda like how a hyena surrounds a lion) anyone one of them could’ve easily had a weapon. She was aggressive towards the man, put her hands on him, then tries to rush him. She got knocked out, the rest of them dispersed, he did the right thing. Y’all can keep raising your kids to be disrespectful, next time she might not be so lucky.

She could easily pass for older. She’s pretty big for 11 and she put her hands on him and he just shoved her away the first time. Then she charges him. I don’t know (and neither do the rest of you) what led up to this but what can you reasonably expect to happen. I don’t like it, but ….

As I expected…the racist are swarming to this live the abusers they are, for validation lol. Racist and coons LOVE shit like this. Gives them excuses of why black women deserve abuse and to be treated extremely masculine. Yet…I’ve witnessed non black women act in this manner and yet are protected and excused. And if any black man punched aka assaulted them, he’d be imprisoned or murdered. But carry on bitter hearted ones. Your day shall come😁

First of all, those kids didnt need to be surrounding that lady, if one had a problem with her then that one should have went up to talk to her. Those kids harassed the lady and the dude came to protect her. How may black women would want a black man to come to their defense if they were surrounded by some white kids? Secondly, girl walked up on hi and he pushed her away, then she came back with fist up and took a swing at the dude. He was within his rights to defend himself. If her parents had taught her that being a follower will send you either to the grave or to jail like my parents taught me, she wouldnt have been in the situation. I blame the parent(s) for not teaching that girl that your actions have consequences, and to think before you do dumb shit, if a woman swing on a man, he has every right to knock her out so she will think twice about that again. I am not advocating men beating women but a woman shouldnt feel she can swing or hit a man without any repercussions.

So if this man end up dead I guess he deserved it for putting hands on a child the ppl on this post talking about it was her fault if it were your child would it have been justified no because if it was your child u would be ready to kill his ass can’t stand a bunch of hypocritical ass ppl and for anyone to say it’s kool for this over grown ass individual (nt gonna call him a man) cause he’s not to hit a child your ass need to be locked away in a damn gas chamber no that’s to easy need to be tortured to the fullest

well, after reviewing the video it seems as though she came at him, now being undersized and younger in a fight doesn’t mean you can’t hurtsomone . He should have been better as an adult and grown man to move the people away (if indeed this is correct and he was trying to protect someone from these young people) and punching a person in the face when there is an obvious difference in size age etc… its. lack of judgement restraint and was brutish. Given that what exactly is he supposed to do when she came back at him and about to swing at him? what disturbs me is the reaction people have to this incident. Several quotes stating “had it been may daughter he would be dead” , or something of the sort. ……so we have come to the place where we respond with deadly actions? When you kill someone they are dead forever, theres no coming back,,, its an extreme over reaction to call for this man to be killed or even to respond to him with deadly force, especially after the fact. Yes.. it’s frustrating to see that happen to a child but his actions are debatably defensible watching these kids go thru their motions.. Everyone reacts to fear differently which is why we have \ laws protecting our right to self defense. Now his actions were obviously wrong in a societal context ,,what about the actions of the children? Is anyone actually surprised that she had her head handed to her in the context of the groups actions? didn’t surprise me , people commenting on this post demonstrate that it’s okay to go from zero to ten,,well thats what he did,,was it right? and why are these children not being supervised by adults given the current state of our world? Both sides have fault here…

Dean …thank you for …breaking it down …I sat thinking …yes that hold situation is messed up…I thought to myself ..what if it was my child and my parenting skills were being questioned …What I teach my child before all things give respect to a adult . And that if they feel that an adult wrong the she lived through it…Now on the other hand a man hitting a female anything is a grand mess as well…I worked with trouble kids and yes they can hurt you …but there are ways of dealing with them other then knocking them out …I am lucky to have been train to take down the aggressive on in a self defense and protect way ..but really even with that what would stop the rest from attacking ? This was a bad mess ..just messy ..
Why didn’t any of the people watching assist this man …? So…my first would be a emotional reaction because this is my child but later when it got quiet I would have to look at her part in this and not excuse her behavior by her age…now days it just to dangerous …I think children are doing to much ….and we need to come up with a solution returns the innocents of being a child …His fear and lacking was more then likely the cause of his reactions ….Very wrong handling of this .,,,Shame on those that didn’t step in as adults and help him shut this down ….Now lol blaming parents lets not pretend once our parents weren’t around we did that very thing they told us not to do ….lol If he is a father I am hopeful that he wishes he had handle that better … We have got to look away from fast emotional thoughts and give situations our real …What would we do ?
