An angry mob brutally attacked a man in front of his house after he told a group of kids to to stop playing basketball on Saturday night. Matthew Owens was hit with bricks, chairs, pipes and paint cans on his own front porch in Alabama by a group of 20 people who reportedly stated, "That's justice for Trayvon," after they were done beating Owens to within an inch of his life.

Matthew Owens is still in the hospital with severe head injuries. He reportedly pleaded with his attackers as they rained down on him.

This is exactly what Obama and his ilk are wanting.

After all, it’s only “fair”.

If that wish ever came true they would be out of jobs, so you can bet they don’t wish it to be so.

A white man in any urban area must now be armed at all times.

I have a friend that has lived on that street for years. It was a nice neighborhood until the Holder’s people moved in. One night a few years ago, a guy driving a van was sprayed with automatic weapon fire. I dont think the police ever arrested anyone on that one, probably drug money owed.

The thugs will continue playing ball rather than getting out of the way of whitey’s car. They walk in the streets side by side instead of using the sidewalk. They are always just daring somebody to say something, then they pull something like this on you.

When we were offered a chance to move from there to Texas, it took about 30 seconds of discussion to say YES!

Don’t feel too bad. They won’t get out of my way either and I’m in a police car.

That is until I threaten to arrest them for impeding the flow of traffic. It usually works but every once in a while, it goes all the way. Usually dumbass juveniles.

We need a ban on bricks, chairs, pipes and paint cans to end the violence.

It seems they want “Whitey” to “let my people go”. Only, that’s not what they really want. If “Whitey’s” money were to suddenly dry up, the welfare checks and freebies that many of them receive would stop. They’re welcome to GO, as far as I’m concerned, all that don’t want to live in peace and carry their own weight.

I was thinking the other day, if I lived on an island that was overrun with Komoto dragons, and someone offered me a boat ride to another island far, far away where I could live in peace, I’d go. Holder’s “people” and Obama’s “people”, and the Hollyweird crowd is becoming Komoto Dragons - and it’s tempting to just go and let them kill and devour each other and let the chips fall where they may.

Corrected.

Did any of you read the comments left at the site where the story was reported? Some are shocking! One guy posted that
“retaliation” is justified. It scares me how many Democrats think like that!

This is how it works.....

The parents say go outside and play but not in front of “our” house.

The kids know to go into a White neighborhood and make all the noise they want because it isn’t disturbing their family and “whity” won’t normally complain and if they do they yell “Prejudice and Racial Slurs” when the cops come by, and then they just move to another white neighborhood till the cops get calls from that area - and on and on and on......

I know it happens because I have seen it happen time and time again.

Mexicans (for some reason) seem to tune out the noise from their kids. Guess they have a different filter built into their brain.

This has happened for years, nationwide from sea to shining sea.But before the internet they were only local crime stories, highly sanatized to censor any racial motives.

Here is just a small sample:

135 brutal attacks for being white on a public street:

Thanks.

To be fair, some police have given Freepers a reason not to support and respect them.

I personally am weary of the war on drugs, it’s collateral damage, and I fear what the Fed has in mind for police across the nation.

Giving due respect for the blacks I have known and respect, their children play quietly with their neighbors (be they black, white, asian, mexican etc.

Most of the time they are in the house or in the yard doing what civil kids do - talk about school, study, talk about fellow students and friends, teachers (ie.) constructive conversations.

I know that not all LEOs are worthy, but the bad ones are usually weeded out. LEOs are on duty 24/7 all across the country and are on the front lines against the bad guys. They’re lives are at risk the entire shift while at work. Millions of manhours per year for LEOs and a handfull make the news for being screwups.

With Goetz it was 4 to 1. Zimmerman was only 1 to 1.

The drug war has been going on for over 40 years with no end in sight. It has been responsible for more challenges and case law about the 4th Amendment than any other source.

It will not end because it employs too many people and supports too many industries legal and illegal.

Sorry for hijack all...

Checked with Al and Jesse, sorry no “Opportunity” here. They only attend “Opportunity Events”. Check back if you hear about a group of whites beating a black and maybe they can round up the protest mob

Which brings up the point that is always ignored. It’s not racial, it’s cultural. Black families, with two married parents, where both have at least completed high school, have rates of employment and family earning equal or greater than white families. They also have rates of incarceration that are much, much lower than the average for single parent black families.

Why are people surprised that they are treated like thugs when they act like thugs?

Referring to your statement of “it’s not racial, it’s cultural, I would like to add that it is ALSO “Attitude”.

One day I was looking out the window at work because there was an accident on the freeway just a few yards away. A well spoken man stood next to me and we started talking. I didn’t immediately look at him but I did notice that he had a “Very” nice suit and spoke English like someone who had attended Harvard, Yale, etc.

After a couple of minutes I turned and looked at him. He was Black (not light brown, not dark brown but BLACK), thick lips, kinky hair. We became great friends but I still remember the shock I experienced to see someone who looked like they just stepped out of the African bush but was in a top quality suite and VERY well educated and VERY friendly with all levels of the company. Everyone was impressed with him.

It was ALL attitude. I would have liked to meet his parents because I think I could have learned a lot more about human nature and what it takes to produce such a well mannered, professional son.
