This is only the beginning maniacs. Very sad that a case of a hispanic man shooting a black teenager to death in Flordida has now started to fuel a race war between whites and blacks that is spreading across the country. Rev. Al must be smiling from ear to ear.
Mobile, AL - On Saturday night, Matthew Owens told a group of kids to stop playing in the middle of street, only to have them return with a group of adults who dished out a beating that landed him in the Intensive Care Unit, according to police.
Police say that the group of 20 assailants used chairs, pipes and paint cans to waylay Owens on his own front porch.
The victim's sister, Ashley Parker, told News 5: "It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed." She said the attackers used "brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on."
Parker added that as her brother lie on the ground bleeding, one of the assailants looked back and shouted: "Now that's justice for Trayvon!"
Owens is still listed in critical condition at the University of South Alabama Medical Center.While this attack may be shocking in it's brutality, it is only the latest in a string of alleged black-on-white hate crimesin the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting on February 26, in Sanford, Florida.
-Last week, police in the Chicago suburb of Maywood arrested 18-year-old Alton L. Hayes III, after he and a juvenile accomplice allegedly attacked and robbed a man. Hayes has admitted to the crime and told police he committed the brutal assault because he was angry over the Trayvon Martin case, Cook County State's Attorney's office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton told the Sun-Times.
On April 17, Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy grabbed the 19-year-old victim, pinning his arms to his sides. Hayes then threatened to hit the man with a tree branch and said, "empty your pockets, white boy," said police.
