Las Vegas: Murder Investigation Opened Into Beating Death of 17-year-old White Student by Mob of Black Students

Las Vegas: Murder Investigation Opened Into Beating Death of 17-year-old White Student by Mob of Black Students

“Lewis had kept his son on life support hoping for a miracle.”

It’s becoming an all-too frequent occurrence, yet there are no mobs of white people burning, looting, and murdering in response to the beating deaths of white people and Jews at the hands of black and pro-Hamas criminals. Nor, of course, should there be.

The latest horrifying incident occurred in Las Vegas and saw a mob of approximately 15 black high school students beating a lone white high school boy. The victim, 17-year-old Jonathan Lewis, later died from his injuries. The crime is being investigated as murder.

Fox News reports:

A Las Vegas high school student died after he was severely beaten by a group of around 15 attackers.

Jonathan Lewis, a 17-year-old student of Rancho High School, died Tuesday, less than two weeks after an attack by the group of students outside the school, according to a KLAS report.

The teen’s father, also named Jonathan Lewis, confirmed his son’s death to the station. The grieving dad said his son kept to himself and lived in Las Vegas with his mother, though the teen planned to move to live with his father in Austin, Texas.

. . . . Lewis said the teen’s family has been told by investigators that they plan to charge several students who were involved in the fight with murder.

Here’s the full text of the above tweet:

JUST IN: Jonathan Lewis, a teenage boy who was beaten up by 15 students at a high school in Las Vegas, Nevada had died.

Throw them all in prison for life.

According to the boy’s father, the brutal beating happened after 17 year old Jonathan Lewis stood up for one of his “smaller friends.”

“A couple (of kids) attacked him, and they weren’t able to hurt him enough, and they all attacked him at once,” the father, Jonathan Lewis said.

In an emotional interview with a local news station, Lewis’ father remembered his son, saying he was a quiet kid and they had plans to move to Austin, Texas together.

“I just love my children with all my heart, and it’s just unimaginable that we could ever come to this point,” Lewis, said.

“I think there’s just a failure of all of humanity to recognize that we need to be teaching our youth how to coexist.”

Lewis had kept his son on life support hoping for a miracle.

Lewis was an artist and was considering joining the United States Navy like his grandfather.


The Las Vegas Review-Journal has more:

. . . the altercation happened after “Jonathan stood up for one of his smaller friends,” Lewis [Sr.] said.

“A couple (of people) attacked him, and they weren’t able to hurt him enough, and they all attacked him at once,” he said.

Lewis Jr. was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries on Nov. 1 after police officers found him about 2:05 p.m. bleeding from the head off of Searles Avenue and North 21st Street. The cross streets are about half a block east of Rancho High, reported the Metropolitan Police Department, which has not yet publicly identified the victim of the attack.

The child had been in a fight involving about 15 people and was taken to UMC while in critical condition, police said.

. . . . In an email, Lewis described his son as “a loving, giving, kind, fierce young man who loved community and caring for others.”

“This horrific tragedy is reflective of the divisive, conflict based, uncaring state that our society and humanity is currently facing with how we interact with our community,” he wrote. “Empathy and love are great strength and cowardly violence is pathetic.”

Lewis Jr. was an aspiring artist interested in drawing, photography and painting, his father said. The boy was considering joining the military like his grandfather, who served in the U.S. Navy.

It’s not clear from the reports what motivated so many people to attack one kid, but there would definitely be wall-to-wall coverage of this horrible murder if the races of the kids involved were reversed.

Police are working to identify who took part in the beating. No arrests were reported as of Friday.

The mauling by feral animals took place on Nov 1. I’m sure it was not difficult to figure out the kids involved that day. All of them should have been arrested and in custody that night. Now, over a week later and they still haven’t picked up the vermin, but they are starting to get on the case because the kid eventually died.

That’s pathetic and disgusting.

I was going to say something, but I have no words…only tears.

Only because it got national play

Blacks can murder at will

And they do will…

      And a school system that is failing because they have lost all values.

        JohnSmith100 in reply to MarkSmith. | November 12, 2023 at 10:43 pm

        Part the school, but a school cannot fix what has happened in the black community. Black culture is close to being as bad as those stateless Jordanians in Palestine. I am beginning to think that both need bad players

          LBJ. He destroyed black culture that wanted to integrate.

          The problem is that the schools, to a great extent the last 20 years, have encouraged and perpetuated this cultural demise. Along with government and the media.

          “LBJ. He destroyed black culture that wanted to integrate.”

          No. That’s an excuse. Blacks made their own choices.

          “No. That’s an excuse. Blacks made their own choices.”

          To an extent, but government created some of the problem.

          Government providing poor but “free” schools destroys the market demand for privatized alternatives, making them noncompetitive. Then even if you want to make another choice, there isn’t one, or it’s out of your price range.

          In LBJ’s case, government providing poor but “free” basic support destroyed the market demand for husbands, fathers, and nuclear families.

        “We want to stop the school to prison pipeline.”

        You know, some of them actually deserve that.

Have to give the black kids credit, at least they are sticking together. Where are the white kids?

In the old days payback would be a bitch. It likely has more to do with uncheck attitude than their blackness.

Sad story and I hope the woke people get out of the way so justice can be served.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to MarkSmith. | November 13, 2023 at 12:12 am

    Because retaliation by whites would have resulted in arrests. Of whites. Arrest a bunch of the black kids, and you end up with a riot on your hands. The tribal chieftains community leaders know that they have white people cowed. And they take advantage of it.

Conservative Beaner | November 12, 2023 at 10:50 pm

“The crime is being investigated as murder.”

Ya think!

    There is a video.. how much investigating is required? Ferals, all of them.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to amwick. | November 13, 2023 at 8:58 am

      Two sites I visited showed a video that was so blurred it brought to mind a manual-focus 8mm movie camera set incorrectly. NO one’s camera phone is that primitive and even the very first ones made a higher resolution than what was shown. I knew, when I saw this blurring, that the gang was black.

    Well, the alternative was “a serious of unfortunate misadventures.”

And what little media is out there acts like a 15 versus 1 is a plain old vanilla fight and not a mob beating.


    I caught that, too. Every time I read the word “fight” related to this mob beating it set my teeth on edge.

    “The child had been in a fight involving about 15 people…”

    So that is now what a mob attack on on kid resulting in his murder is described as.

      Fifteen on one. NOT a fight. A mob beating that resulted, predictably, in cold-blooded murder (15 on 1 is not a fight, it’s a mob killing).

        Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 13, 2023 at 8:02 am

        No, it’s not a “mob beating” or “mob killing”. Fifteen black thugs beating a white person to death should be called what it actually is. A modern day lynching. Nothing more nothing less. To call it anything else is an insult and an attempt to minimize the crime by mainstream media.

Prediction: Part of the defense will be a claim that young Mr. Lewis used a racist slur towards the black kids.

    Milhouse in reply to CountMontyC. | November 13, 2023 at 7:13 am

    Let’s suppose he did, just for the sake of argument. That is not a defense. At all.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to CountMontyC. | November 13, 2023 at 7:31 am

    Prediction: These savage blacks will be adjudged “children” because none will be 18 years-old or older and will be tried in juvenile court where they will be given slap-on-the-wrist punishments and told not to beat white people to death. If they are punished at all.

      You assume that they will even be brought into a courtroom. Given the ultra-Liberal bent of the so-called “justice” system, it is more likely that the charges will be reduce, dropped or p-lea-bargained.


      caseoftheblues in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | November 13, 2023 at 9:07 am

      Silly you….thinking they will be told not to beat whites to death…. That’s the exact message kids are getting in schools from kindergarten up with critical race theory. It’s their duty and right to hate and take vengeance on whites wherever and however they can.

Wasn’t it in Las Vegas that those two punks ran over the retired guy on a bicycle and laughed about it? They got big problems over there.

Cultural Marxists are forming a race war,

Why the deafening silence from BLM when its black on white violence??

Obama is smiling.

More of the vile and evil Obama’s “sons.”

The wretched Dhimmi-crats’ incited and fomented race hatred is destroying this country.

I grieve for the parents of Lewis.

I will giggle with delight to see those 15 kids will be charged with murder.

Being a good Christian demands utilizing one’s intellect and dealing with the REAL world with Christian principles. That means keeping these people safe, fed and usefully employed. It also means treating them differently and segregating and controlling them as appropriate. It should be a rebuttable presumption that they are cognitively inferior, lack impulse control, criminally inclined, lazy and untrustworthy. People shrink from this reality much as they shrink from how the food they eat is processed and the energy they consume extracted.

    People shrink from this reality
    No. People shrink from obviously racist arguments. That’s the one you’re making – accusing people with a definable characteristic of hair or skin of all being of one sort of capability or not.

    The problem is Progressivism, which treats culture as unimportant as relates to behavior. And there are plenty of people who have adopted the culture on view here that are not members “these people.”

      E Howard Hunt in reply to GWB. | November 13, 2023 at 12:09 pm

      Everybody’s a racist, buddy, because the differences so blindingly obviously go beyond skin color. There are two kinds of racists- those who deal honestly as adults, and those who hypocritically congratulate themselves on their phony moralistic self deception.

18 U.S. Code § 249 – Hate crime acts

(a) In General.—

(1) Offenses involving actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, a dangerous weapon, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person—

(A) shall be imprisoned not more than 10 years, fined in accordance with this title, or both; and

(B) shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life, fined in accordance with this title, or both, if—

(i) death results from the offense; or

(ii) the offense includes kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill.

    So what? You assume that the “system” gives a damn about the law. There is little evidence of that, and much evidence to the contrary. Look at how many high-level perjurers, conspirators, grifters, thieves and traitors are walking around loose.


      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Rusty Bill. | November 13, 2023 at 10:32 am

      Oh, and I forgot to mention this clause. The Emmet Till Anti-Lynching Act that amended 18 U.S. Code § 249 and makes lynching a federal offense.

      18 U.S. Code § 249 – Hate crime acts

      (5) Lynching.
      Whoever conspires to commit any offense under paragraph (1), (2), or (3) shall, if death or serious bodily injury (as defined in section 2246 of this title) results from the offense, be imprisoned for not more than 30 years, fined in accordance with this title, or both.

      But as you rightly pointed out, the “system” doesn’t care about such niceties like the law. But here we are and there we go.

    We don’t know why they beat him. That it was because of his race is only a guess.

After reading seeing this story on different platforms -first the Guardian – yours is the first with honest headlines and discussion of ‘Who.” The others spoke of ‘youths’ even as the video made it obvious who the youths were.

I’m shocked that not one of these thugs’ parents have turned them in. Shocked I tell ya!

“I think there’s just a failure of all of humanity to recognize that we need to be teaching our youth how to coexist.”

I have to disagree with the grieving Father in this instance. You wouldn’t have to teach them to “coexist” if schools weren’t victim indoctrination centers and were teaching good moral and civic values, or teaching the sanctity of life, instead of teaching that abortion is contraception.

My prediction is that no effort will actually be made to bring even one of these pot bellied savages to justice.

Also think of the callous disregard it takes to just stand there a video someone being beaten to death. I also note that none of the video I have seen was released with sound. (There may be some out there.) Wonder why that would be? Maybe, because of what the pot bellied savages were screaming when they beat the kid to death?

Teach your children to defend themselves and how to get away at any cost.

    >>“I think there’s just a failure of all of humanity to recognize that we need to be teaching our youth how to coexist.”<<

    No, I think there is a failure to recognize that a certain racial group isn't "Just Like Everyone Else™️" and take the necessary steps to educate our "youth" to the possibility of violence when dealing with this particular racial group.

“…there are no mobs of white people burning, looting, and murdering in response to the beating deaths of white people and Jews at the hands of black and pro-Hamas criminals.”

Since the police can’t or won’t step in and restore order, historically what is the next step?

“Nor, of course, should there be.”

That’s the next step. The times — they be a-changin’.

This is the end result of the woke/leftist narrative of oppressor v oppressed. Those cast as oppressors are no longer allowed to rely upon the basic social contract that surrender of some individual autonomy to the State in return for protection. The woke/leftist narrative seeks to put us into opposing tribal factions. Many have resisted this particularly those on the right. Unfortunately the increasing frequency of violence directed towards those cast as oppressors is going to result in members of this ‘tribe’ of oppressors taking matters into their own hands. IMO it would be far better to avoid this by the simple expediency of the so called authorities doing their actual job instead of continuing their cosplay as social activists. If not then much like a newly arriving prisoner to an out of control prison, everyone will be forced by circumstances to join one of the factions/gangs in order to survive.

    It’s the end result of LBJ’s “Great Society” and the welfare state that has encouraged fatherless homes.

      CommoChief in reply to stevie. | November 14, 2023 at 11:31 am

      That is a big factor as well. The d/prog sought to sever the family and have largely succeeded. No fault divorce and far too generous welfare programs have made the traditional family formation and staying married optional.

      IMO, this helps explain the divergence in black males being far more supportive of Trump and the GoP than black females. The difference isn’t race b/c it’s the same group, it is a gendered divergence. I would say the difference is the experience of black males in dealing first hand with females seduced into viewing Uncle Sugar as the generic replacement for the traditional male responsibility of providing for a household.

      Given the high rates of single mothers, 85% (+/-) of single parents are actually single mothers. We also see divorce rates well above 50% with women filing for divorce (no fault) 80%+ and being awarded child custody 90% of the time. Not just the ‘black’ community impacted by the deliberate destructive policies designed to undermine families.

      Men have always been more likely to vote/support stricter/conservative policies and candidates than women. Now we see this going into overdrive. Why is Biden so hell bent on revoking college debt? IMO, b/c young women who vote d/prog hold the lions share of that debt. Women are now about 2/3 of college attendees. Add abortion to the mix and we see a cynical play to reward/motivate a likely d/prog voting bloc for ’24.

we need to be teaching our youth how to coexist
No. Wrong. We need to teach people this is a moral issue, and that harming others is evil. Then we need to punish those who refuse to act in that fashion – heavily, until they get it.

We don’t need to “get along”, we need to teach them to respect others, or else.

It doesn’t look too much different, but one is passive while the other is active. It’s the difference between explaining to your child how tearing up the neighbor’s garden is a bad thing and whipping the tar out of him for doing it. One is unlikely to achieve any sort of result except with the most compliant of children.

regardless of the colors involved have to admire the father’s restraint–though a traumatic event for any parent, that father should be proud of his son

have known / worked with many formidable warriors in this life–do not know any who could have prevailed (unarmed) in a fifteen-on-one attack

the truth is that one boy like the victim is worth more to society than fifteen hundred of the thugs ever will be

believe when our tolerance comes to an end, either with or without the sworn authorities efforts, things will be set aright

condolences to the victim and his family

Suburban Farm Guy | November 13, 2023 at 12:30 pm

We don’t have the infrastructure nor the will to arrest, prosecute or incarcerate these feral youth. There won’t be justice. What happens after that? When people see injustice reign it is — should be — intolerable. We are just going to sit back and watch? What have we become….

The school needs to be investigated to find out how many (probably all) of those attacking Lewis had felony level offenses on record that were not reported to the police or even disciplined because of Federal DOE policies regarding equity in school procedures. Trust me the number will not be zero.

The other reason for investigating the school is that I guarantee this attack did not just randomly happen. It was planned. Very likely the planned attack was talked about and posted on social media. Chances are that it did come to the attention of a teacher or administrator if only in the form of scuttlebutt. The friend who Lewis defended may very well have been a target of these monsters before. Which makes me even more sure that those involved got away with other instances of violent behavior before.

The results should rightly result in the school having its pants sued off.

    Dolce Far Niente in reply to JRaeL. | November 13, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    And the actual outcome of ” the school having its pants sued off.” will be that the taxpayers foot the bill and none of the teachers or administration will suffer any personal consequences.

    They will certainly not be fired; after all, they didn’t post MAGA graffiti on their personal social media or something heinous like that.

      The teachers and administrators should be sued individually as well. As for taxpayers footing the bill. If it means the school is forced to change policies and make schools safer it is a worthwhile expense.

      I never thought I would feel this way but this story and others highlighting the violence of a large class of students is one reason I have concluded it is time to end government mandated compulsory schooling.

    JRaeL in reply to JRaeL. | November 14, 2023 at 9:57 pm

    I know it is odd to reply to my own comment. I just read that the attack was organized. According to the dailymail.u.k. it was over stolen headphones and vape pen.

Throw them all in prison for life.

Yes. Or, consider the death penalty. If you don’t want to apply that to “children,” perhaps some of these savages (students?) are over 18.

CharlesTheHammer | November 13, 2023 at 3:12 pm

Odd. CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, did they run coverage of this?

I’m joking of course because they wouldn’t fit their narrative that white supremacy is the real issue here.
