'That's justice for Trayvon': Angry mob beats man for telling them to stop playing basketball...
The London Daily Mail ^ | April 24, 2012

Posted on 04/24/2012 3:30:21 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

An angry mob of youngsters brutally battered a man who told them to stop playing basketball outside his home - and allegedly then told him 'that's justice for Trayvon'. Matthew Owens was hit with bricks, chairs, pipes and paint cans on his own Mobile, Alabama, front porch by 20 people on Saturday night after complaining about the noise.

Owens' sister, Ashley Parker, claimed the group attacking her white brother were all African-American as she told wkrg.com: 'It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed.'

And she alleged that, as they walked away leaving him badly bruised and bleeding on the ground, one of them then said: 'Now that's justice for Trayvon'. The slur was, she said, in reference to the unarmed black 17-year-old allegedly gunned down in February by white neighbourhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida.

The killing has left America on a racial knife-edge.

A growing digital lynch mob of Twitter users is calling for street justice against Zimmerman, who has gone into hiding, and advocating he be murdered.

Some have even threatened to kill the neighbourhood watch volunteer themselves....

How many more “That’s Justice for Trabon”s do we need to endure to balance the books?

An honest prosecutor would consider this an adult crime of assault with a deadly weapon, or attempted murder. Sadly, Obama and Holder seem to betting the tone, and it's a violent, racist tone, exactly the opposite of the rule of law.

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
- Senator Barack Hussein Obama

It looks like his constituents are listening to him.

Charge them with a hate crime and attempted murder.

You know, it's taken Obama, Sharpton, and the rest of their ilk to put into place the possibility of finally realizing the dream... Not of Dr. Martin Luther King, but of Charles Manson.

Manson had hoped that his murders would ignite class and race wars. I wonder if Obama's going to pardon Manson as the architect of Obama's dream...

You have to go to Great Britain to get the news. Our media refuses to handle it. Might be seen as “racist”.

it’s very difficult to know how and when this will end, but it seems it’s coming to a head...whatever that will mean.

All indications show that large numbers of young blacks are becoming are brutally attacking whites based on their race.

It’s becoming so common place and some of the attacks are so enormous, that even the MSM cannot hide these attacks anymore.

Check out the comments on sites like Yahoo, TZM, YouTube, or even ABCNEWS.com, and you’ll see that the sentiments expressed by conservative Freepers is very moderate compared to much of white America now.

As I said, it’s very difficult to know where this is going to go, but more Americans will arm themselves as they hear about these violent attacks, and there will be many more Treyvon Martins and George Zimmermans in the future.

More white American’s will grow more resentment by what they see and will start behaving as they have been accused of, such as overlooking job applicants because of their color.

It’s very unfortunate, because as Americans, we need each other, whether you have a jury of mixed races, or if you are in a bad accident and the only other one to helps you is from another race.

I read another piece about this incident - the police say there’s only one witness who heard “Now there’s justice for Trayvon” and they’ve been unable to find any others who heard it said. If it WAS said it’s outrageous- if it was made up it’s equally outrageous and no better than the editing of the 911 tapes or the “coon” reference that didn’t exist in the Zimmerman case.

Darn, my little .380 Kel-tec only holds 6, plus an extra mag, guess I need yet another one. Would still be 2 short in this instance.

Good thing about it is you don’t even know it’s in your pocket. Made in FL, guaranteed for life.

Nothing to carry it around and toss in your pocket. Now a 357, I would not take with me everywhere I go. .380 with hollow points is way better than nothing.

Delmar Dr. used to be a quiet attractive little street to live on and raise a family. Then Holder’s people came.

Let’s pretend she made that up. Should 20 people assault and nearly kill an single individual for chiding their kids about playing in the street? I live one hour from this incident and am surrounded in my flea-bag apartment complex. We need to somehow get back to Dallas/Ft Worth!!

Hell NO- it’s no excuse for what this gang did...there IS no excuse for it- none.

I guess I’m actually hoping someone DID say it- nothing makes me angrier that a liar.

As for location- I understand your unease- I’m a few miles from the Martin-Zimmerman incident. There’s an edge in the air across the country.

I agree. I have a Glock 26 that is way too heavy and bulky to carry all the time. My Kel-tec goes with me everywhere...even when I am wearing shorts and a t-shirt. If you don't already have one...I recommend getting a “Clip Draw” Makes it a breeze to carry inside the waist band on any kind of shorts or pants.

The author of this piece is disingenuous.

America is on edge because of the racist pot-stirring done by the sadistic evil left some weeks after the killing.

I just heard late afternoon on the Scott Schnitt Show (he follows Rush for three hours, WFLA radio) that another witness to the racial slur has come forward. This one, fortunately, is no relation to the victim.

A local Mobile newspaper reporter phoned this piece of news to Schnitt and he reported it live during the broadcast.

So now there are two witnesses who heard the hate-crime shout, the second one verifying the first.

I’m hoping a FRiend in DFW knows of some way for us to get there. There are problems in Dallas but it’s so big you can avoid them. Biloxi/Gulfport is too small for that. We are maybe 600 feet from a new super Wal-Mart and the only indoor mall in the area. I assume that looters will be here like flies on honey, not to mention my neighbors who somehow don’t have to work, even though most are able-bodied and younger than I am...

There is no justification for what these adults did to him.

But, it would not surprise me if we find out the "kids" told their parents a very exaggerated version of the event.

No doubt Dear Leader will pardon them if they’re ever somehow tried and convicted. I actually expect him to pardon each and every black individual in the US prison system if he loses to Gov. Romney.

“How many more “That’s Justice for Trabon”s do we need to endure to balance the books?”

Those books will never be balanced. Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barack Obamma and the entire “media” will see to that.

It’s palpable in the Chicago area.

“I have personal insight into this incident. It had nothing to do with kids playing basketball or racial slurs.

Several neighborhood kids were going into his neighbors yard and carports who were away. He told the kids to put the items back and get off the neighbors property.

The kids left. Several minutes later, numerous cars pulled up and the occupants set upon Mr. Owens. The group consisted of adult male and females and children.

As they were leaving they were overheard sayin “This is for Travon”

The press has “their” stories wrong and need to correct it and stop trying to paint in a way to allow for justification of attempted murder against Mr.Owens.”

Someone should thank the ADL, which is joining in the screams about justice for Trayvon.

They should also thank “America’s Rabbi”, Smuley Boteach, who is shamelessly licking the Martin family butt and holding them up as a shining example.

Never thought I’d see the day.

The 380 can be loaded to roughly equivalent to a 38spc. You don’t get the bullet weight, but there are compensations.

"The killing has left America on a racial knife-edge."

No, the race-pimp "Rev-runnnnnnnns" have built a false knife edge and placed their walking targets on it.

This is not going to end well for certain disgruntled folks...
