EAST BREMERTON, WA - A black man was waiting
for his girlfriend to get off work at Oh! Gallagher's Sports Pub and Grill late
Tuesday when he was insulted and challenged by a young, drunk patron who used
racial epithets, witnesses told deputies.
Two of the aggressor's friends joined him and
the black man soon found himself in a fight with three men.
A bouncer sent the altercation outside.
The original instigator went to his car to get
his pit bull to sic on the black man, who pulled a handgun from his car to use
against the dog.
By the time deputies arrived, things had calmed

press charges, deputies reported.
No one was injured and no one was arrested.

If only people of color would stop and examine the facts, so-called "hate
crimes" would be stopped in progress, just like this event was brought to
an end. We are glad this citizen rescued himself, but wonder why he didn't
