Tampa, Florida -- Police want your help finding four men who teamed up to beat a young U.S. Army soldier in a South Tampa street.

It was an awful welcome to Tampa Bay for a young soldier. Police say the victim of a violent beating caught on camera is 24 years old and has lived in Tampa for less than a month.

He's a U.S. Army soldier assigned to MacDill Air Force Base and lives not far from the base at Dale Mabry Hwy. and Interbay Blvd.

Police say Sunday morning, at around 3 a.m., the soldier's car broke down a few miles from home along Westshore Blvd.

The attack came when he was walking home and using Iowa St. to get from Westshore to Dale Mabry. At the intersection of Iowa and Renellie Dr., the man came into the view of a neighbor's motion-activated security camera

You know who else is responsible? Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and every other race-baiting political opportunist who stokes fear, hate and resentment.

They’re no better than David Duke.

And now that we have reports of bloody knuckles on Trayvon, no one makes a sound, because their work is already done. If we had a responsible press, this would not happen so seamlessly.

It seems that nothing much that is good happens at that time of morning if you are out on the streets.

I wish the soldier had been armed so he could defend himself—and maybe taken out a bad guy or two while doing it.

“These animals aren’t going to be happy until they have a white death from black hands to avenge Traavon..”

My thoughts exactly. Wait till Zimmerman is cleared of all charges. Should be interesting.

I couldn’t tell any race, but some of the attackers were wearing hoodies.

Have to think with the lack of mention of race that the soldier was white and the attackers could be Obama’s sons.

News report is that attacker descriptions were 3 black and one Hispanic.

This is obviously not a hate crime, because the alleged victim had no right to have his car break down in a neighborhood of minority citizens. He provoked his own attack.

I hope Eric Holder investigates this and brings charges against the alleged victim for his flagrant disregard for minority rights.

Question: What will happen on the day after election if Obama loses?

Will we have to cower in our homes?

3 a.m. with a gang of blacks seeing a white man walking though their neighborhood, this attack would have probably happened whether these thugs had heard of Traavon or not.

Plenty of attacks like this happened long before Jackson and Sharpton marched in Florida.

President Obama the turd himself has literally brought back the lynch law, soon what little enforcement is made against these terrorists will be anulled by jury of their “peers”, and yet the conservative blowhards will quibble about a percent or two of taxation so as to not be called “racist” by the dying old media.

Its easy to tell, if the one getting beat up is white and the one doing the beating is black, their races are not mentioned....Like if a corrupt poliican is democrat his party is never known, if he is a republican his party is mentioned by at least the second paragraph...

Over the past couple of days, I have read several articles on this unprovoked and brutal attack/assault. NOT ONCE is the victim’s race ever mentioned.... so I conclude that he is likely white.

I trust, respect and in some cases admire Black conservatives and I would never want to hurt one, but if one or more of these vicious animals approach and get within 21’ of me, I will refuse to be their victim and I may very well introduce them to God.

“I hope Eric Holder investigates this and brings charges against the alleged victim for his flagrant disregard for minority rights.”

Let us not forget that this was brought on because of “Black Rage” which is not controllable and brought on by the slavery of their ancestors. So there maybe a hate crime attached to the alleged victim.

Why is the Justice Department becoming involved with the Zimmerman case? The answer is quite simple:

1. If convicted (not likely) this will energize the minority base to get out and vote for Obama as he is “protecting” the minorities.

2. If not convicted (very likely) the minority base of the Democrat party will be energized to get out and vote to fight the perceived injustice.

This whole damn thing is being orchestrated from the White House and Obama does not give a damn if people are killed and race riots start. Actually I think he wants this to happen. Obama, Jackson, and Sharpton are truly evil individuals and racist to their core values.

>> There won’t be a coming race war.

I certainly hope you’re right.

Question: Been to the local public range lately? I’ve run 8 NRA courses in the last three weeks. Lots of “interesting” new patrons taking the required initial range safety briefings.

Hint: Be nice to everyone, love puppies and kittens, but have a plan. A serious plan.

Two possible responses. (1) I hope you're right. (2) You sound pretty certain; what makes you think that?

I am certain because if the left succesfully foments war, white marxists and agitators will be just as high a target priority (and will get killed just as dead) as the new black panthers and such. You can bet they will go after black conservatives as well.

Ergot, they might incite civil strife, but their fantasy of inciting one where liberal blacks are the foot soldiers and take all the risks ain’t happening. War, may happen, but not one based on or limited to racial factions.
