The sister of a white Mobile, Alabama man who suffered severe head trauma during a beating by approximately 20 black neighbors on Saturday spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller, saying that the incident started after one of her children witnessed some of the eventual assailants stealing an item from a neighbors porch not, as some media outlets have reported, following a disagreement about a pick-up basketball game in the street.
Ashley Parker, whose brother Matthew Owens is clinging to life after the assault, said Owens was attacked after her 21-year-old daughter witnessed a group of African-American youth moving from yard to yard in the neighborhood and taking something that didnt belong to them. She told Owens, who confronted the youths.
She saw one of them take something off a porch, Parker said, and that is when Matthew approached them and told them they need to go home.
The group returned with more than a dozen others, she said, beating Owens with bats, brass knuckles, a chair, a paint can and other objects. The attack left him bloodied and unconscious.
Parker has since reinforced her account about petty theft precipitating the incident, telling the same version of events to a Facebook group that was started to support her brother.
She said she is scared to death and plans to move out of the neighborhood this week.
I dont feel safe here anymore, she told TheDC. My brother is being smeared. I know how this works now. The victim always ends up the bad guy. I have lost faith in humanity because of this. Ads by Google
Her children, she said, witnessed their uncle being beaten half to death. Now my children are afraid. I will not live like this.

Maybe some had firearms, maybe not....but I’d take that chance in such a situation. A) I’d have the draw on ‘em from the get-go, and B) I guarantee I have more range time.
I still say they’d run like jack rabbits.
Except Till wasn't as innocent as is typically taught. Look it up, and how his 'war hero' father was misused by the NAACP in propagandizing his case.

I’m painfully aware of that, stayathomemom...I was born into and have lived my entire life in what are known as “white-flight” bedroom communities in the NE Metro Detroit area. The contrast is drastic, the rhetoric alarming and the stark reality of the Obama presidency’s detrimental effects on race relations and in the black community in general have been the worst I’ve ever seen and heard of.
Because I’ve learned so much over the years about how White Flight got started, I understand the mentality of what is often mistaken for or hyped as being racism and skin color has nothing to do with it.

We are all pretty much George Zimmerman now.
You’re changing the context of my reply. I was specifically addressing what I would do, how I would react if I looked out my window and saw a mob attacking someone. Period. Future consequences be damned.
“...20 black neighbors...”
I got 20 uncivilized savages who happen to live in the vicinity.
Yep, a street sweeper 12 guage would have done the trick...
