Adams Morgan hate crime was motivated by Zimmerman verdict, police say (Wash., D.C.)
The Washington Post ^ | Saturday, July 27, 2013 | Nicole Chavez and Stefanie Dazio

Posted on 07/28/2013 9:59:44 AM PDT by kristinn

A Bethesda man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning in Adams Morgan by three men who yelled, “This is for Trayvon Martin,” before attacking him, police said.

The incident is being investigated as a hate crime and robbery, according to D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali.

Three black men approached an adult white male from behind while he was walking in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW at 1:26 a.m. Saturday, police said.

“There is no pattern in these types of crimes. These attacks are outrageous; we are doing everything in our power to see that they certainly don’t occur

No pattern? The victims are white, and the perps are black. I must be a grade A frickin' genius to be able to see that pattern....

These hate crime laws should be used against blacks, not just against whites. Glad to hear this. There is such hatred and racism in the black community, which we’re not supposed to say anything about.

Like allahu akbar....a false moral fig leaf for soulless sacks of skin.

Isn’t it just all the trend right now, though?

Eric Holder already said in the first term that hate crime laws aren’t for whites. I’m surprised even one crime with black perps on a white is being charged as such.

Acually the victims can be anyone and the perpetrators are angry gangbangers.

It isn’t “blacks” in general.

Or even “young black men” in general.

Would you have trepidation around a young black man if he conjugates his verbs properly, dresses neatly, and talks knowledgeably about electronics or architecture?

This is a clash between the culture as a whole and a violent subculture. Not all blacks are part of said subculture and neither are all its adherents black.

Can the crap.

Washington DC, particularly under Obama, is ground zero for racial politics. It’s been a local fact of life in DC for decades, but now Obama and Holder have taken it to the national leveling have seemingly given it their stamp of approval.

What’s surprising is that such attacks are not much more common in DC

Just another day in DC, but now the Zimmerman verdict is the excuse to rob and maim. Something tells me the weeny preening liberals love reporting this kind of story because they feel smug knowing that whitey is getting a payback for the horribly racist verdict.

I'm based out of DC and I worked in DC during the first Reagan administration. I wouldn't have gone walking around DC at 1:26 AM, even back then.

(Most conservatives/libertarians wouldn't. They generally have too much common sense. True, it's a free country (or was) you have every right to walk around any time of day you choose. But DC has a murder rate that's higher than any state. And nobody but a criminal is walking around at 1:26 AM with a gun in DC.)

p.s., I work a great deal in downtown Vallejo and deal with black business owners all day. My job is to help them grow their businesses. I have no trepidation working with them, and they have no problems working with me. But you’re crazy if you think I’m not wary when I see a group of 3 or 4 young black males hanging out in front of a liquor store or a gas station after sunset....

This is the best reason for why all of us should have their two best friends (SMITH & WESSON) along with them when they are just going out for a walk. These three perps wouldn’t be walking around anymore, the city would be a lot safer, without these three. The country would be rid of three more animals.

How dumb are the Trayvonistas? As long as the don’t yell “This is for Trayvon!”, the police could pawn off this hate crime as “a robbery gone wrong” or “just bored teens” like they do for the multitude of other times that black guys mob attack white people. It makes it kind of difficult for police to play ‘hide the hate crime’ when the criminals yell that their purpose is a hate crime.

I hung around with a few West Africans when I was in graduate school quite a few years ago (we were taking the same courses). I went to various parties and events with them. The only time I experienced THE worst looks of unfiltered and unadulterated racial hatred was when I went with my friends to some event for local blacks. Not only was it all platonic, but I had barely walked into the room. If looks could kill....

I have never lived in DC, and have visited only a half-dozen times since 1993, but the distinct impression, generally, is that one does not wander around anywhere alone within those 68 square miles after dark; certainly not at 1:30 am.

Dumb or arrogant? They have been empowered by Obama and Holder. They want the message known and to spread terror to the Whites. In their minds, it is payback time and they have the blessings of Dear Leader.

This is reference to an editorial run in Canada Free Press. The Canadians got it right.! Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts I’ve been listening to can’t seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage.

.For certain since the not guilty verdict has been rendered the facts of this case are still being concealed by the media such as not using pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. The mixed area of modest dwellings that Zimmerman was a “watch captain” in is a mini US melting pot which includes a number of black families . All were struggling with single and groups of young blacks on the prowl., In some instances armed, preying on homeowners.in his area. and usually such neighborhood watch areas are posted as such..That”gated” area wasn’t even examinined because it wouldn’t fit their agenda if true journalisim existed,because it couldn’t support any racial assertion..It would even explain Zimmerman’s action taken during his surveilance of Martin which is done on private rights of way . . In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view they may leave their vehicle and continue surveilance on foot.. ....

Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, and a very dark skinned “hispanic” Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a racist episode.and of course ignored Zimmerman’s defence of a homeless black maltreated by a local police officer which resulted in the disciplining at Zimmermans insistance of the offending officer. The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the exclusive “gated” neighborhood watch captain was a “white hispanic” . used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captain’s life.

Meanwhile attacks by black groups on selected happless white victims which wind in their death get ignored by the mainline socialist messengers MSM service and black on black killings many of the age of the so called victim is likewise same-o same-o.

Do not confuse todays politicians and their ahearants in the press and academia as followers of “Liberalism”. . These are die hard God denying I’m right you’re wrong socialists incapable of independent thinking running todays media.. Devising political campaigns of lies and manipulated inflamatory languange disguised as “news or reliable information” designed to destroy any opponent or group to what is edict-ed by their leader. You must wind up goose-stepping in unison protecting the collective otherwise we will through the use of government step on you and squash you like some insect.. Until the quashers are quashed this will continue..

I must agree with you Mr. Edd. This is one of the WORST verdicts I have seen in not such a long time. Zimmerman is a Nazi in American clothing. The fat pr*ck was out lookin to shoot somebody. I mean, the guy HAD to effective in his sick little mind, at least once in his life. This was a terrible verdict. I have come to the conclusion that Florida has become more sick in the head than California. Yikes!! CO

Can the crap.

What you say is true. It's not all blacks. But it is disproportionately a young black problem. The statistic that just cannot be ignored is that young black men, 3% of the population of the U.S., commit 50% of the murders.

I don't know about you but that causes me and most people including (I'm betting) most blacks to "profile" young black men and to avoid them particularly when they are in groups. It is just the rational thing to do.

The solution to this problem is not going to be found in the courts or by law enforcement. The black community is going to have to decide to bring back the black family and raise their children in households with a MALE member. I hope they do but I actually don't expect them to. To much political and social pressure to stay the course. Sad to say.
