MOBILE, Alabama -- Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he's in critical condition.
According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.
Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.
Owens' sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. "It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed." Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using "brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on."
Police will only say "multiple people" are involved.
What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said "Now thats justice for Trayvon."

To that I would respond that you aren't properly recognizing thug/ghetto mentality, because a person who would "snap" to one side fits exactly that mentality.
“There is nothing else to do at this point but avoid them at all costs.
Do not approach them, do not speak to them, nothing. If they are around you, leave quickly and silently.
If you spot them in the distance, turn around and go the other direction before they spot you.
This is serious, race relations are damaged in such a way that it is now life threatening.”
Wrap yourself in the Second Amendment.
Know Guns - Know Peace.
No Guns - No Peace.
Yeah, you’re probably right. Not all ghetto mentality lives in the ghetto.
SOP for that “subscriber”.
You are correct about the “racist” tag. It is deployed so routinely and with such abject, consummate ignorance, that I am fully immunized agasint its intended projected guilt.
The younger and more...ahem...”sophisticated and nuanced”, even here on FR, I’m not so sure.
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as Exhibit A...sadly.
I definitely understand where you are coming from sir, however intelligence and survival dictate that I not walk into or otherwise approach black neighborhoods or black people at this time.
It just ain’t worth the risk. I’ve got people that depend on me, and if I get myself maimed, killed or arrested, then they are screwed, not to mention me, and I’m not going to let that happen.
So until we as a people are prepared to address the uncivilized barbarians living among us without fear of legal action or recourse because of their race, I’m going to do what I have to do to stay safe.
To do otherwise is foolish and it invites disaster.
My mom always told me not to be dead right, ‘cuz I might be right, but if I’m also dead it doesn’t really matter.
ah, but see you didn’t say “black neighborhoods” now did ya?
There in lies the rub.
Anyone with an ounce of preservation wouldn’t be in a “black neighborhood” to begin with ;)
Wow, well I defintitely believe that such an article exists, and that doesn’t surpise me at all. Facts must be hidden and manipulated as necessary in order to advance the agenda.
The departure from logic (not to mention the gross distortion of what I originally posted), was so over the top, that I didn’t even bother to address it.
Thanks for laying it out so authoritatively.
You not so stealthy romneyites take Rahm’s advice to heart I see, never let ... oh never mind. You outed yourselve sufficiently with your insult to FR. ... Now, lie about what you intended your post to convey, that’s the Milt Rominy way don’tchaknow.
Praise the Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle. -Psalm 144:1
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. -Proverbs 22:3
Then He said to them, But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. -Luke 22:35
The “racism” indictment is becoming less and less effective, and the “racism” obsessed guilt ridden crackers need to get with the program!
“Matthew 5:44 (ABPE) - But I say to you, love your enemies and bless the one who curses you, and do what is beautiful to the one who hates you, and pray over those who take you by force and persecute you.
Matthew 6:14-16 (NIV) For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Mark 11:25 (NIV) And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
1 John 2:9 (Wey) Any one who professes to be in the light and yet hates his brother is still in darkness.
The widely (very widely, indeed!) Father of the author of those four quotes previously issued what are commonly known as commandments.
One of them was “Don’t Murder”.
Arguably, specific Commandments from The Father may be considered authoritative.
Speaking of forgiveness, consider the requirements for forgiveness were:
1. Restitution (4 to 7 times the value of the criminal’s destructive act).
2. Public apology.
3. The public apology had to be sincere.
“Doncha know? Charles Murray would be persona non grata here at FR, despite the fact that he’s done more to undermine the premises of the welfare state than pretty much every other conservative alive combined.”
His works are seminal, exhaustively researched and consistently illuminating. Along with such foundational tomes as John Lott’s “More Guns, Less Crime”, they belong in the library of any individual interested in truth.

Yep, look, guru, I am armed and nicely so, but it doesn’t provide me too much comfort, because so was George Zimmerman, and now look at his life.
I mean seriously, I would not want to walk one inch in his shoes, and he is a law abiding citizen who was perfectly within his rights 2nd amendment and all.
Any one of us could be George, any one of us.
“he asks us not to fear it when we find ourselves in it.”
You were given free will by G*d.
As an American, you have the right to be armed.
Be armed and defend yourself or suffer the consequences.
IMHO, Don’t expect your betters to defend you if you are not armed and willing to defend yourself.
My post stands. Of course in my mind....
And fwiw...if you would have worded it differently...I would have not even commented.
I comprehend just fine...and I'm not ignorant, nor substandard. Though my dogs....might differ.
I will take back the "I'd ban you from the site comment" I made though....That was hasty...and not smart.
