Police have arrested four suspects in connection with the beating death of a former U.S. Marine who was found unconscious outside of a party at a Cobb County, Georgia, apartment complex in March.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Arthur Batchelor, 37, Tarell Secrest, 36, and Jason Hill, 35, were taken into custody on Tuesday for allegedly killing 34-year-old Zachary 'Zach' Gamble. Another suspect, 38-year-old Sean Hall, of Atlanta, was arrested on Monday.
Hall is also accused of violating his probation stemming from a DUI conviction in 2009, according to the Marietta Daily Journal.
All four suspects have been charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and aggravated battery. They are being held without bail in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center, police say.

Prayers for the Soldier and his family.
Just turn these clowns over to about a dozen Marines...they’ll know what to do.
Ya know, if Obama had brothers, they’d look just like these shining examples of humanity.
Good gawd. What a bunch of inbreeds.
Prayers up for his family.
Aided and abetted by the criminals in the old media who keep saying, “We didn’t kill those people or steal that money! We just covered up for those other criminals who killed those people and stole that money.”
I don’t see any men in these photos...not at all.
The UK Dailymail doing the job that USA News Organizations won’t.

I’m not a Marine but....What is an “Ex-Marine”?
Oh,oh....that guy's *really* in trouble! What IQ-of-40 fool thought that this adds anything to the story?
Them guys look like they were beat with whatever is dumber than a fence post
True.Everything I've ever heard indicates "once a Marine,always a Marine".
Stay armed, “these” will never fight one on one. You have all seen the videos, if you go down that is the invitation for every swinging Richard to get some good old foot justice in. It’s hard to identify people from the soles of their feet. This is how they fight, recognize the threat, plan to counter it.
Stay armed. This is going to be more prevalent.
This is a British rag and might not be all that familiar with American culture around this issue. But they are refreshingly not politically correct either.
Where are all of the race baiters? You know, the shuck and jive black ‘ministers’ that make their living off of the racist perception of the disadvantaged. This could be a great story for the NY Slime to jump on about how this white man got what he deserved from these well meaning freedom fighters.
We need some white supremist to call a protest and put a bounty on the heads of these guys.
Sad world(country) we live in. Wish we had an independent free press.
Marine goes to wild party with at least four low life thugs in it. What could go wrong???
That would be John Murtha.All other Marines are always Marines.
I went into a public-’ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”
The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;
But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.
I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
They sent me to the gallery or round the music-’alls,
But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;
But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.
Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.
Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.
We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;
While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,
There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.
You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!
LOL .... Too True!
If you live in Georgia and are white, you need to carry a gun or stay out of areas that are mainly black.
At their sentencing, I would love for the judge to say this:
You are the most despicable scum this earth has to offer. You have taken the life of a patriot, that gave his time to this country to ensure your freedom. Therfore, we are going to take yours.
You are to be taken from this place, to a place of execution. There, you are to be hanged by the neck until you are dead. May God have mercy on your soul, because I sure as hell won’t.
Get these pieces of human garbage out of my courtroom.
My God, you couldn’t get a three-digit IQ out of that bunch if you added all three of ‘em together.
Sounds like the Marine crossed paths with these guys in the apartment parking lot and they decided he “dissed” them or something. Four-on-one ensued, and minutes later, poor Gamble staggered out in front of a taxi.
Here are my standards:
Active Duty Marine - A Marine currently serving on active duty
Marine Reservist - A Marine that is currently in reserve status
Marine Corps Veteran - A Marine that has successfully completed enlistment and/or commission in the USMC
Former Marine - An individual who, for what ever reason was separated on Other Than Honorable, or worse, circumstances from the Corps. In my book, this title also includes individuals who no longer uphold the values of the USMC in their personal and political lives; although some people would argue that point.
It’s a good thing this white guy didn’t have a firearm or he might have racially profiled these pieces of scum and shot them, saving his life, resulting in charges of murder.
The Skittles seem to be everywhere.... just gettin’ justice for Trayvon .
Paging Jessie Jackson and Al not so Sharpton...please pick up the nearest colored courtesy phone...
So this is a racial beating that no one wants to call a racial beating?
I don’t know why we keep taking this crap....
A little black on white violence. The poor guy was Trayvonned. We have a race war going on people. Don’t be a victim.
Justice for Trayvon: 15 Whites Beaten By Gangs of Black Thugs So Far
there is no justice, there’s just us.
Wouldn’t there also be a “Retired Marine” (one who made it a career)?
They need to be transported to Parris Island. They’d be good for teaching hand-to-hand combat.
Little Obama bastard sons.
Bingo! We have a winner.
He'll probably find himself on the wrong side of a lethal multi-person beat down.
And the charges will leave the families of the murderers, if they have one, penniless as battery, much less aggravated battery, is both a tort (civil law) and a crime (criminal law).
Why am I reading about this as a posting from a UK paper? Don’t we report our own atrocities any more?
I guess not, if the perps are black. Next step will be letting them off, via a police force and prosecutor’s office that “mirrors the community.”
