‘Vile’ video shows man rob Air Force veteran while he’s dying from a heart attack

A military veteran was robbed in Virginia while he was dying from a heart attack. The sickening video shows the suspect appearing to help the Air Force veteran, but he was actually stealing money out of his wallet.

Ray Bass took a city bus in Richmond to his doctor’s appointment at the McGuire VA Medical Center shortly before 11 a.m. on Sept. 10. While in transit, the 66-year-old suffered a heart attack. Riders informed the driver that a passenger had collapsed. The driver pulled the bus over, evacuated the vehicle, and called 911.

A young man is seen on video seeming to try to help Bass. The man, later identified as Damontea Chappell, can be heard saying, “Pops, what yo name is, pops?”

Then Chappell is seen searching the pockets of the unconscious man. “I’m trying to find your wallet,” Chappell is caught saying on video. “Where is your wallet?”

Chappell is seen stealing money from the former Desert Storm sergeant’s wallet during his final moments of life.

“He was acting as though he was a good Samaritan when all the while, he was a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” Richmond Police detective Greg Russell told WRIC-TV.

Russell said the 20-year-old stole between $200 to $400 from the dying man’s wallet.

The bus driver for the Greater Richmond Transit Company said that Chappell told him he was assisting Bass so he wouldn’t be alone.

When officers arrived at the scene, Chappell told cops that he was “terrified” and “had never seen anyone die,” according to Russell.

“I’ve been a police officer for 30 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” Russell said. “This might take the cake. This is a vile incident that should not have happened. This man deserved respect and was totally disrespected.”

Once police reviewed the surveillance video, they issued a warrant for Chapell’s arrest. The Richmond Police Department said Chappell turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday and was being held without bond.

According to an online obituary, Air Force Sergeant Raymond Bass was a former aircraft mechanic. “In his spare time he enjoyed fishing, football, especially the Redskins, and spending time with family.” He was laid to rest with military honors.

Bass is survived by three daughters and six grandchildren.

His niece, Cassandra Bass, called Chapell “the scum of the earth, bottom feeders and there’s a lot out here amongst us.”

“Calling him ‘pops’ as if he knew him. He wasn’t trying to help him at all,” she told WTVR-TV. “You could see he was actually kicking him to make sure he wasn’t moving and dead before he went into his wallet.”

“Like most men, he kind of wanted to keep the health thing hidden,” Bass said. “So we didn’t worry and I think it’s why the sudden death has hit us so hard.”

“My dad is deceased, so he was like a dad to me,” she about her late uncle. “A very devoted family man, he’d do anything for his loved ones.”

Bass’ common-law wife, Renee Scott, did not mince her words about the thief.

“Whoever the person is who went in Ray’s wallet as he lay there deceased, has no soul and represents the devil,” Scott said. “God is stronger and he will find you.”

atlanta Intelwars leftist violence Portland riots Richmond Rioting watch

It’s spreading: Leftists riot in Atlanta, Richmond, other US cities in solidarity with Portland militants

As the profile grows for lawless, left-wing rioters in Portland, Oregon, and their nightly attacks on law enforcement, their comrades across the United States are beginning to follow suit and perpetrate violence and mayhem in other cities.

What are the details?

Seattle, of course, has been a hotbed of leftism and is well known as the city that allowed the deadly “CHOP” autonomous zone to exist for several weeks following the death of George Floyd. But anarchy and destruction have resumed in the Emerald City — although not without detractors making their voices heard, too.

In Austin, Texas, a driver told police he shot a Black Lives Matter protester Saturday who pointed at weapon at him. That protester, Garrett Foster, died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Violent uprisings are hitting other cities, too.

Richmond

More than 20 people were arrested after a weekend of rioting in Richmond, Virginia, that included fires and smashed windows, the Associated Press reported.

Some participants said the lawlessness was in support of Portland rioters — it had even been billed as “Richmond Stands with Portland” — and Richmond Police Chief Gerald Smith noted his department saw a flyer calling for demonstrations with a tone of “intimidation” and “wanting to produce fear,” the AP reported.

Smith said the ages of those arrested ranged from 17 to 45 and charges included trespassing, riot with a dangerous weapon, and transport of a loaded rifle within city limits, the outlet said.

“The city of Richmond is open and welcomes those who would like to come here in expression of their First Amendment rights,” Smith said, according to the AP. “However, we have to take action when we know that violence is coming.”

Atlanta

Rioters vandalized an immigration building in Atlanta over the weekend, leaving broken windows, spray paint, and scorch marks courtesy of fireworks,
WXIA-TV reported.

The building houses the federal immigration court as well as the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the station said.

More from WXIA:

Several
videos were posted online by at least one group, using the twitter handle @AcidVitalism, was claiming the vandalism was “in solidarity with the freedom fighters of the #PortlandProtests.”

The hashtags #PortlandProtests and #PortlandSolidarity have been used online in reference to the protests against federal law enforcement in recent days in Portland, Oregon.

Additional posts from the group later in the day on Sunday also indicated solidarity with recent demonstrations in other cities, including Seattle, Oakland and Austin.

The group claiming responsibility told the station Sunday the incident was organized with an encrypted app group chat.

“In solidarity with Portland last night, a crowd gathered in Atlanta outside the DHS/ICE office. These agencies are directly responsible for ruining untold numbers of lives, and for the violent policing of the Portland protests,” an email from the group said, in part, according to WXIA. “We will fight with everything we’ve got against [President Donald] Trump’s private police force, against authoritarian and despotic governance. What the police produce, above all, are their own grave-diggers. Their fall and the victory of the ungovernable are equally inevitable.”
