Milwaukee beating victim says attackers cited Trayvon Martin
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | 7/16/2013 | Ashley Luthern

Posted on 07/16/2013 7:36:53 AM PDT by sbMKE

A 34-year-old Wauwatosa man told Milwaukee police that he was repeatedly punched Sunday, unprovoked, and heard one of the his assailants refer to Trayvon Martin during the beating.

The man, who was identified in media reports as Christopher Simpson, was attacked about 7:30 p.m. Sunday in the 2600 block of W. Cherry St. in Milwaukee. He told police he was punched in the back of the head, and then several other suspects punched and kicked him when he fell to the ground.

Simpson, who is white, told WTMJ-TV that he was beaten by a group of black teens and that one of them said "This is for Travyon Martin."

Hate crime - victim was attacked because of his race.

Wow now DOJ has a _real_ case. I’m sure they’ll get right on it.

Come on Eric Holder - this one’s a “no brainer.” Let’s prosecute under the Hate Crime statute.

You should never, ever, put yourself in a position that you are alone with a group of black teens at your back.

There have been a few cases like this around the country. Clearly they are hate crimes. I expect all laws to be applied to these cases. We can debate about the wisdom of hate crime laws, but, these laws are on the books. It’s a hate crime when black youth attack whites because they are white, as surely as it would be if whites attack blacks because they are black. Eric Holder, this means that the Justice Department needs to file charges. Thank you

Trayvon was just an excuse for these black thugs to do what they wished to do anyway.

When was the last time you read about a white mob beating blacks.

After Obama took office there has been a steady, dramatic increase in the number of Americans owning/possessing weapons. Wonder why?

For every attack "for Trayvon" it gives counter-attackers a growing list of names that they can cite. Brilliant!

Did the victim cry? Did he express “Forgiveness?” Does he “LOVE Everyone?” Does he want to sit down with Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and discuss how whites can atone for slavery?

This is the problem with the moronic Hate Crimes as your enemy gets to decide what you are thinking.

Bad law! Unenforceable with any justice! Elevates a minority to superior legal protection! This is life under black rule.

Not a day goes by without at least three or four stories of homeowners taking down ferals who conduct home invasions. Also... only God knows how many unreported times thugs like these blacks run away with their tails between their legs because their intended victim pulled a semiauto piece when threatened?

Remember, Trayvon was busted at school with a backpack that contained jewelery, screwdriver and empty bag of pot.

Trayvon liked to fight and was interested in buying a gun.

This kid was casing homes to break into when Zimmerman spotted him.

What you stated were facts, My FRiend, in this case, facts are irrevelent. All that matters to the lynch Zimmerman mob is that Zimmerman refused to allow a hoodlum to take his life. And for that sin, Zimmerman must be severely punished.
It is not only Blacks who believe this. From listening to the case being discussed on talk radio, I heard an equal or greater number of Whites have called in saying Zimmerman had no business or right to protect his life

“Americans have lost the will to fight”

OK, I’ll bite. Look for a tragic Bernhard Goetz incident this week. There are too many law-abiding Americans trying to go about their business, and armed, for these outrages to continue without bloodshed.
A point the jury made, somewhat overlooked due to MSM fearmongering of the possibility of black riots:
If you are armed and attacked and placed in real fear of your own death or serious bodily injury, or even that of another (’defense of others’), it ain’t murder or even manslaughter if you defend yourself or another from that threat.
Yeah, it’s hard, but that is what really bothers the mau-mau set, not the loss of child Trayvon. So stick that where the sun don’t shine Jesse, Al. Barry. Don’t tread on us.

“Even other blacks know better. Or maybe I should say especially blacks since they are most often the victims of other blacks.”

That’s for sure. Chris Rock used to point this out in his comedy routines. The line he used all the time was “ya’ll keep harp’n on white person dis, white person dat,...it ain’t some white person I worry about when I’m at an ATM on MLK boulevard at midnight...”

This is the third black on white or Hispanic ‘revenge’ attack since the Zimmerman acquittal. This one in Milwaukee, one in Baltimore and one in Mississippi. In addition a Pennsylvania business was arsoned and a reporter at an Oakland rally was assaulted.

Is there anyone (certainly not the MSM) keeping a tally of these ‘hate crimes?’

Hatred comes in MANY colors. Racial profiling from ANY particular race should be punished (and I do NOT believe that George Zimmerman was profiling), but we ALL know it won’t be. What a very sad ending to a great country.

My statistical butt. If the stats show two or more standard deviations of crime from ONE identifiable racial group, then I would damn well HOPE my government profile them because that's their goldarn job.
