Drunk Goldman Banker Knocked Out For Screaming Racial Slurs, In Serious Condition

Tyler Durden's picture

As if the nation didn't have enough racial tension on the line with the Zimmerman trial about to leave many people on either side of the gaping racial/social/political divide very angry any minute, now the bankers are involved. And not just any bankers, but apparently ones from that universally lauded incubator of central planners, Goldman Sachs.

According to the Post, "a drunken man was punched out and sent to a hospital in serious condition last night after he yelled racial epithets at a couple quietly eating at a West Village burrito shop, cops and witnesses said. The violence went down at about 5:50 p.m. outside the Benny’s Burrito on the Greenwich Avenue and Jane Street. A black couple was sitting outside the Mexican joint when an intoxicated white man stumbled into their table. Douglas Reddish, 25, who was eating with his girlfriend, tried to help him regain his balance, cops said, and the wait staff came over to shoo the table crasher away.

This nigger wants to fight me!” the belligerent man yelled, cops said.  

Reddish knocked him out with a blow to the face, authorities said. "He was out cold. I thought he was dead," said Benny’s worker Robert Garcia.

A woman who spoke with the man before he was knocked out said he was upset over his wife leaving him and about his job at Goldman Sachs. But why would he be upset: has the market not been manipulated high enough to guarantee every banker in the US record high bonuses yet?  "I felt so bad," she said. "He could hardly walk." By all appearances, the Dow will have to hit 20,000 before Goldman bankers are no longer upset about their 7+ figure bonuses...

In the meantime, and as so often happens, the man who punched out the banker was promptly arrested:

When Reddish saw that the drunken man was bleeding profusely he fled the scene, leaving his girlfriend at the restaurant, cops said.


Police arrested him shortly after and charged him with assault for attacking the man, believed to be in his 30s.


The angry white man was taken to Beth Israel Hospital, authorities said.

Well, if Goldman and its employees are really desperate to antagonize society and split it not only along wealth lines (Jamie Dimon is already lapping most in that regard with his "That's why i am richer than you" comment from several months ago), but add race to the mix, usually quite an explosive combination, then by all means keep on keeping on.

Good to know GS employees are working their asses off on a Friday and hitting the bar at noon.

So anyone want to take odds that said Nig... is going to be charged with a hate crime or charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and sent to federal prison?

Stay classy Goldman!  Dimon would have kneed him in the jewels.

With all the security cameras & cellphones there MUST be a video of this somewhere.

Anyway, it's not often that people do exactly the right thing at exactly the right time for exactly the right reasons. Hats off to Reddish. 

LetThemEatRand's picture

Lloyd is reviewing the videos as we speak in the Mayor's office, looking for one that makes his guy look like the victim.  If such a video exists, it will be released and the others will be mysteriously deleted (like the videos around the pentagon on 9/11 that can't seem to be found).

Look forward to it, until then this will have to suffice. Only bad thing is this guy didn't get KTFO.

One Rothschild merc/domestic enemy down. Send in the U.S. Army round up the rest of the scum. This on top of Janet "The Bull" fleeing Homeland Security yesterday. I'd say that's Hope and Change.

She'll fit right in as top bull-dyke at UC....

The surest way to manipulate the social fabric is through a rigged educational system. I'm sure the subversive un-american Mr. Napolitano will continue with her antics at the once great U.C. system... and I suspect we have yet to hear the real reason why she made her "un-expected" announcement yesterday.

Any NYC lawyers reading ZH that want to represent that hero?  We can take up a collection, I will donate.

"The angry white man was taken to Beth Israel Hospital, authorities said."
Chosen One vs. Black Man. That was never going to end well, especially in NYC. Talk about a fight you can't lose. I would donate to the lawyer fund as well.

Didn't Voltaire say something like

"I disagree completely with what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it"?

After all, free speech doesn't mean just the freedom to say things that we like or agree with.  It means letting assholes give their racist opinions, too.

dunce's picture

Good point, if the black guy called the white guy a cracker honky and got decked, would the legal end game be the same?

ATM's picture

No. White guy can sue black guy but black guy will never have to pay.


strannick's picture

Yes we have to defend the right of the white guy to chirp racism at the black guy, but we also have to defnd the right of the black guy to beat the living shit out of the white guy. The real crime here is that the black guy felt he had to run, when he should have been trashing talking the white guy in his ear while he laid there.

So...  let me get this right.

1. Steal trillions
2. Run fraudulent Dent Money Tyranny designed to bankrupt and impoverish society
3. Sell toxic trash as AAA to pension funds and others
4. Call citizens Muppets and laugh about ripping their face off
5. Commit perjury to steal people's homes.

...and nothing.

But...  call a man a name and he risks the chance of a murder charge.

We are so totally forked as a society.

Our value system is as toxic as Goldman Sach's derivatives.  Maybe more so.

On a more technical note, did the Golmanite try and go "Matrix" thinking he was Anderson Silva?

Whoops, I guess he missed Silva's last fight.

Colonel Klink's picture

You pretty much have it right.  Have no fear he'll get fair treatment in the NY tribal court system.

Zero Hung's picture

No no... you got it all wrong. You see in boxing, this is about the only time a black man looks forward to a judge's decision.

Anyway, this is what the disciple doing God's work remembers:

"The electricity is everywhere tonight. 'Goldman Balboa', the 50 to 1 underdog, is living the Cinderella story that has captured the imagination of people all over the world. To quote a popular financial magazine, the fighting style could be called 'The Caveman versus the Drunken Master'. From the increase in sound, the challenger is now approaching the ring... his record is 0 wins, 50 consecutive losses by way of knockout...

The Champ stings the slower, drunken master with jabs at will. It appears Goldman Balboa blocks 99% of the blows with his face...oh my! Balboa's pencil neck has been snapped by a vicious one-two combo! Goldman is out cold! It's all over!"

She can run, but she can't hide.  I am sure there is a "list", and she is on it.

Yes, along with many others.  

But remember they have their lists too, and they are already acting on them.

Reddish arrested?! WTF?

This country is insane.

Well, nigger isn't a racist term anymore right?  Neither is "cracka" right?  Right???

Up here in Canada we don't have any niggers. That's a strictly American phenomenom.

I just thought of a 'racict' joke:

A drunk Jewish bankster walks up to a black couple at a Mexican restaurant,...

When someone calls you a name, you do not instantly inherit the right to assault.  That's a big problem in this country.....people that think they can do whatever they want...from wall st to the concrete jungle to the projects.

"it was an emotional reaction. a spontaneous response. he really had no control of himself at the time. his girlfriend was there. the guy was billigerant. it's not like he knew him Judge." "Judge...we can't have this our New York. Some people was be allowed to be drunk and scream epithets and racial slurs at people who are otherwise minding there own business. We call these people "the important people" your honor. You know the drill."

Yeah, like yell racist epithets at otherwise peaceful strangers trying to enjoy a burritto. Thank God for street justice.

You have obviously not lived in reality.

Have you ever heard the term, 'Them's fightin' words'?

ALL WARS start with words. Words lead to ideas, and ideas to actions. Calling a negro a 'fucking nigger' in front of his girlfriend, after you (the black man) try to help him gain his composure, after he shows up randomly at an outside Cafe where you (the black man) are eating lunch with her, might tend to piss a person off (the racial issue is not the important one). I would have clocked the prick as well; NO DOUBT!

Of course, being black in Manhattan and hitting a white guy is like a white guy running into an alley where a pickup basketball game is being played in South Central, and yelling, 'NIGGER!'. See 'Kentucky Fried Movie' for more details.

Some banksters get the feeling that they can say, do, or feel any way they want (drunk or sober). Alcohol only AMPLIFIES their psychic actions (lowers their inhibitions).

Your argument seems to be trying to attack the one who was offended, instead of the offender.

villainvomit's picture

Oh I have lived in reallity.  Fights over nigger, honkey cracker spic sandnigger wetback is bullshit.  Like I said earlier, someone calling you a name does not give you the right to attack.   Fights are for the schoolyard.     I don't give a fuck about your feelings and your pride.  Grow up. 

Take responsibility for your actions....was it smart to yell nigger, prolly not....doesn't make him due a hospital stay, 

Touch someone for words and they might just touch you back, just sayin.

But it wasn't assault:  "Sir, I intend thee no harm, but thou standest where I'm about to swing".

merizobeach's picture

VV, you are technically correct about the legality of the situation.  Reddish was (and may still be) well within his rights to sue the goldmanite for his inappropriate behavior as well as file a criminal complaint for public drunkenness or perhaps even some sort of hate crime.  We may hope that he has the resources to pursue such ends.  Now, as he has taken upon himself to pursue 'street justice'--with a very mild and lenient application in my opinion--he must face the imperial state's consequences for usurping their (corrupt) authority to trail (and acquittal) of the offender, and for that, he will face some manner of assault charges, plus whatever else may be trumped up or dredged up against him, not to mention any more clandestine punishments/reprisals from brethren goldmanites.  It'll be interesting to see the video; hopefully the scumbag bankster made first contact or some other blantant offense in addition to his comments.

The completely other side of this issue is personal sovereignty versus deferral/acquiescence to statism.
