Man tells police group yelled ‘Trayvon,’ then beat him
gainesville.com ^ | April 9, 2012 | Chad Smith

Police are investigating the beating of a 27-year-old man who was walking home from midtown bars early Saturday when he said he was jumped by six to eight men who shouted “Trayvon” before the attack. The exclamation was an apparent reference to 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in February in Sanford.

Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said the victim sustained injuries to the left eye, abrasions to his palms and a cut on his right kneecap. Valuri said the victim could not give descriptions of the suspects or their vehicle, other than to say it was a mid-size vehicle.

The assailants are black, while the victim is white, Valuri said.

The case of Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was killed by a Hispanic crime-watch volunteer, has stirred conversations across the country about race, crime and profiling.

Saturday’s attack occurred at about 2:45 a.m. in the 3200 block of Southwest 23rd Street.

The victim told police the group of men got out of their vehicle and told him he was walking too slowly.

They then yelled “Trayvon,” according to a GPD report, and proceeded to beat him.

Just the first phase. Their real objective is looting, which will soon follow.

The now-dated “Day beat Rodney!” call to amassing largesse through broken storefront windows will now morph into “Trayvon!”

It’s the “stuff” they’re really after, I tell ya!

Pretty soon, they’ll shout “Treyvon”

The reply will be “BLAM! BLAM! BLAM!...”

I’m glad it turned out ok for the victim. That being said perhaps a number of “Trayvon” type assaults are necessary to develop a sense of reality among the non-black portion of our population. Blacks hate us(perhaps resent is a better term) but we can “man up” and live with it defending ourselves where necessary.

"Valuri said the victim could not give descriptions of the suspects...The assailants are black, while the victim is white, Valuri said."

I can help with that: If Obama had a son, he would look like the perpetrators.

Guess white guys are going to need to get hooded sweatshirts with a picture of a 9mm and the caption:

I AM GEORGE.

MAKE MY DAY.

And carry appropriate firepower to follow through.

So far the blacks have been protected by Government. That is because the Government is afraid of the blacks. This may come to an end and not too far in the future. Martin attacked Zimmerman.

obama, holder and the rest of the democrats are going to get the race war they want. All it takes is about 5 white guys saying “Enough” and go “Charles Bronson” and they’ll call it a race war. We already have the blacks doing it.

Another victim lynched by the black racists stirred up by the lying media and Demonrat party. Imagine what it will be like when whites are a minority. White boomers created it the new order of race hate and/or let it happen.

They attack and racially harass whites all the time, especially in the public schools. We don’t usually mind as long as it is not us. Just like most don’t mind that the Left’s aggressive gay activists are sexually intimidating, dominating and harassing the children in school. We permit our children to be abused in the name of political correctness.

No, a race war is not going to happen in the USA.

Please note-I am not saying that certain political and neo-relligious elements, along with the decaying legacy media aren't trying their damndest to instigate one, just that it will be yet another epic FAIL!

Do you really think the criminal and anarchist elements outnumber normal law abiding people of every color in the USA?

I'm not going to start shooting at my neighbors who are black, anymore than they are going to start shooting at me because I am white.

We may think about taking turns shooting at strangers of any color who try to start any violent crap in our small area.
If any of us had guns...which we don't...they just magically appear after hurricanes and power failures...

You don’t have a gun?

I’m not saying an actual race war. As I said on another thread a certain number of incidents of blacks attacking and killing white people and burning down a few houses, and I don’t know what that number is, will be called a race war by the obama media. And this is what obama and his puppet masters want.

There is some evil folks in charge of this country.

Are you afraid SaraJohnson?

Most violent crimes are either black on black or white on white.
Yes, there are more black on white than white on black violent crimes, but both mixed race crimes are fairly small, compared to the vast majority of all crimes.

Don't hang out with criminals of any type or color.
Don't drink or travel near any bars after closing time.
Avoid activities that start after 9PM or end after midnight.
Avoid all mind altering drugs, and everyone who uses them.

Feel safer now?

I'm guessing you don't comprehend simple legal PC sarcasm via written communications...

I am old enough to remember incident reports of whites killing black people, and burning down a few houses.

The old KKK and the New Black Panther Party try to achieve parity status by the same terrorist tactics!
The vast majority of white people had nothing to do with the KKK.
The vast majority of black people have nothing to do with the NBPP.

Can you name three people you know who believe there is truth in anything the “media” or any politician says?
If so, you are utterly failing to share knowledge with the ignorant.

Right.

Nobody can accurately define you as any kind of “type” based upon your posts, because you are so very fearless and special!

I guess you’re right about my lack of communications skills because I have no idea what the hell you’re talking about.

I’m old enough to have known people who were in the KKK or similar organizations. And, no, I wasn’t a member.
