Posted on 04/12/2012 1:54:28 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
The name of Trayvon Martin was invoked again during an attack in Gainesville on Wednesday night by a group that police say stomped on a white man who was scuffling with a black robbery suspect on the Bo Diddley Community Plaza.
The suspect, Carl Milton Babb, 50, had been released from prison earlier in the day after serving more than two years in prison for the same crime he is accused of committing Wednesday -- snatching a purse from a woman near the downtown plaza.
According to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report, Babb approached a woman eating dinner at the Lunchbox on the plaza at about 8:50 p.m. and asked her for a light.
When she said she didn't have one, Babb took off with her purse, which held her $500 cell phone, according to the report.
The woman's dinner companion and another person took off after Babb.
When her friend caught up with him, Babb punched him in the face and grabbed his hair, but he was able to keep Babb pinned down, according to the report.
The scene attracted a crowd, and a number of people on the plaza approached Babb and the Good Samaritan, who tried to explain that Babb had just stolen his friend's purse.
But they either didn't hear him or didn't care, as they circled in on the pair.
GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said some members of the crowd shouted Trayvon and at least three of them began stomping on the hands of the woman's friend to force him to let go of Babb.

Bo Diddley Community Plaza. At the corner of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Blvd.
wow. Do people know how to write news articles anymore?
Hmmm...seems the appropriate response would be to come up shooting, chanting “Zimmerman!, Zimmerman!...”
And somewhere, Obama and Holder are high-fiving and smiling.
Multiple on one my life is in danger and I take appropriate action.
It seems that whites now need to have a plan for when they are attacked by blacks, and then have a plan for when they are attacked by the law for defending themselves.
I was 13 during the Detroit ‘67 riots. We lived maybe three miles from the destruction. I remember my father sent my mother and little brother upstairs. He and I sat on the front porch that night, along with all of the other men of the neighborhood on theirs. Shotguns and rifles at the ready by all. I was proud to be among them.
I was interested in getting the story, but...as you... I found the writing so confusing and poor that my attention was distracted. Must be some new "journalism major" just out of college who was assigned to produce this. Mom and Dad's money (or our tax money) paid for such a good education for this writer - Not.
“At the corner of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Blvd.”
Sounds like a raceway...
That's what Eric Holder's people are SUPPOSED to do.
Most definitely America’s best and brightest
Babb doesn’t have to follow the white man’s law. Too bad he has to go back to the white man’s prison.
It's all done by computer, now.
No more—fight back.
We head closer and closer to becoming another Zimbabwe.
I heard they had Zimmerman in CHAINS today in court!!!
WTH is wrong with this country?!?
Zimmerman is about as guilty as this hero here was who tried to get the womans purse back!
That is exactly what Obama hero Derrick Bell advocates in his "Critical Race Theory," and what Eric Holder has brought to the US Dept of Justice.
If Americans don't wake up to this by election time, they'll think they're living in Zimbabwe before long.
That doesn’t matter. What matters is a check-box a and fear of being labeled racist.
That is why you see so many whites sitting there like a putz taking a beating.
In every fiber of their being they resist fighting back because that might make you racist. They resist beyond self-preservation.
Being racist has been taught to be the most vile offense ever. Even self-defense is racist.
It is time to change, the script has changed.
“It seems that whites now need to have a plan for when they are attacked by blacks, and then have a plan for when they are attacked by the law for defending themselves.”
Most just avoid them altogether, and wait for the white libs’ plan to pan out; here in NJ blacks are being displaced by Hispanics as they shoot, abort and contracept themselves into irrelevance.
Here in Tallahassee, inmates are always transported to court in handcuffs(in the front) and leg shackles with a chain that attaches to the handcuffs. Its common practice.
Our government had better start defending us, or we will throw the people in it out on their ass, and defend ourselves.
He should take a few of his new friends with him.
You have a right to defend yourself, regardless of who thinks you don’t.
Regardless of the outcome of the Trayvon Martin case, we will defend ourselves. It’s human nature.
You don’t receive any awards for not defending yourself. You only become a victim. No one should believe that we will be nice, willing victims. We won’t.
Not really , Rhodesia the blacks outnumbered the whites by about 8 to 1. The blacks in this country are only 13% of the population , yes they are educated enough to load a gun & pull a trigger but how good are they are fabricating firearms & other ordnance? Thinking up both strategic & tactical doctrine for the home made ordnance? What about logistical support & transport? Also the whites of Rhodesia were adamant that the blacks were to stupid to run a lemonade stand
let alone let them vote.
The public education system & the cultural leadership has a lot to answer for but never will be held accountable .
Sadly this current junta is agitating racial hatred for political gain with the aid of the MSM.
When the bloodshed starts target talking heads & the remote broadcast trucks since they helped knowingly to stir up the blood lust let their blood be spilled let them suffer for the glory of a politically inspired race riot it is only fitting & just.
Your assumption is that the government is here to protect us.
YOU ARE LIVING IN NEVER NEVER LAND.
Your government is here to mete out punishment, whitey.
You had BEST get a grip.
Just the indoctrination centers' way of making you compliant.
Unfortunately for some people, my father always taught us to fight back.
I was raised by a divorced mother. She has said many of time—looking back it would be different. No divorce. I am grateful she did, I love my fahter but he went nutz.
It is what it is. I was a wild child but she was about the best mother anyone could dream.
My mother always told me—you run as fast and hard as you can, when you can’t run any longer, you turn and kick their butt or I will kick yours.
That is a fact. Doesn’t matter what school teaches, kiddo knows the story well.
You don’t have to read much or hear their rhetoric to know that is their goal for America.
The name “Trayvon” will be forever linked with savage mindless ignorant lynch mobs.
If whites withdraw from city areas where blacks hang out and have a history of harming them, the cities will go into Detroit mode unless city leaders crack down on the racist and criminal black thugs so civilized people might return. America has been through this before.
Liberals call it “white flight” and blame it on “white racism.” (Curl your lib and sneer when you say that.) Liberals permitted cities to decay pretty badly before conservatives came along and cleaned up criminal justice and radical anti-business practices. Public transportation in the cities was a race hate lynching trap so normal people abandoned it. Before Gulianni, NY city got so bad, Wall Street was making noises about relocating.
Do you find the hispanics in NJ to be antagonistic toward whites. I live in El Paso, TX which is 80% hispanic and while there is some prejudice against the white minority, I have never felt any animosity or experienced overt racism.
“Do you find the hispanics in NJ to be antagonistic toward whites?”
Not really; many of them have the same priorities as whites. The Dems do a good job of indoctrinating them, but as they move up financially they don’t stay on the plantation. The mass of illegals here has produced a number of Hispanic-owned businesses, so those owners have little reason to support the Bolsheviks. I wouldn’t hesitate to walk through most of their neighborhoods; they are quite vibrant compared with urban black neighborhoods.
