An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
A racially charged beating of a white Alabama man by a throng of African-Americans is not being investigated as a hate crime, despite one witness’ claim that she heard an assailant exclaim: “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
Matthew Owens, of Mobile, Ala., was assaulted with baseball bats, paint cans and other weapons at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday after telling a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive, according to Ashley Rains, public information officer for the Mobile Police Department.
After the children left the area, a group of adults armed with weapons returned and confronted Owens, 40, in his front yard, where he was assaulted. Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, told WKRG she witnessed the attack and that there were as many as 20 assailants. Parker said she overheard one of them say, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
But…it’s not a ‘hate crime’. Does this look like ‘justice’ of any kind?
Asked if the incident was being investigated as a hate crime, Rains replied: “No, it’s not. It’s being investigated as an assault.” Eugene A. Seidel, first assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama, declined to comment on the case when reached by FoxNews.com.
And who does Seidel work for? Why….that paragon of justice, Eric Holder. Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton demanding justice for Matthew Owens? Oh, that’s right….Mr Owens is the wrong color! It was ‘justified’ that those 40 grown… well, I can’t say men, because they aren’t…how about animals? Those 40 grown animals attack an unarmed man, and call it justice for a kid who was killed in a different state, shot by someone else, who has NOT been convicted by a court of law.
Owens has not been a model citizen, but did he deserve this kind of treatment? Does anyone???
Congratulations to the race baiters. It appears your intent to start a race war has seen some success. How many have been attacked in the name of Trayvon Martin? When will you step forward and STOP this travesty? You have blood on your hands!
