MOBILE, Alabama -- Mobile Police Chief Micheal T. Williams said this morning that investigators have not yet corroborated allegations that a Saturday mob attack on a white man by a group of black men was racially motivated.
The sister of the alleged victim, Matthew Owens, told WKRG that she heard one of the attackers say, "Now, that's justice for Trayvon," as he walked away.
Williams said that investigators have interviewed the sister, Ashley Parker, and the victim, and that neither mentioned attackers saying anything about "justice for Trayvon."
Trayvon Martin was the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida.
That case has sparked racial tensions across the country as many say Zimmerman, who is white and hispanic, assumed Martin was a criminal because he was black. Others say a biased media has unfairly pilloried Zimmerman for the shooting precisely because Martin was black.
Williams said that Owens told investigators that he didn't know why the mob attacked him.
Owens was still in critical condition this morning following the attack on his front porch in the 1000 block of Delmar Drive. Police said he went outside and had words with a group of boys who were playing basketball in the street. The boys left, but shortly afterward a group of adults arrived and confronted the man.

Yeah we gotta wait t’get some o’dat cor-robe-or-RAY-shun.
So we are to believe that the mob of twenty was completely silent while beating this guy? /s
Yep, and they were all white Amish guys that don't even know who Trayvon is.
No but calling the victim a honkey, cracka, or white bitch doesn't count as racism.
We'll get nothing but crickets from the LSM on this.
They were shouting “random beating! random beating!”
I wonder what Chief Williams would say if some 20 Goold ol Boy, Crackers had attacked and beaten half to death one of his “Bros” (not that I would EVER suggest that he being an African American would influence or cloud his judgment, dontcha know) ?
Apparently, my stockpile of ammo needs to grow larger still.
I’ve got the ammo... looking into upgrading the “wire” now.
You are absolutely right. Think how easily the racial epithets flow for them about someone they have racial solidarity.
Now imagine how they flow for someone they were indoctrinated since toddlers to hate.
Yep, no hate crime here../s
We have gotten so PC that we can no longer state the truth.
No doubt these mobsters were NOT ‘white Hispanics” (whatever in hell that is)
Oh, yeah, Mobile Police Chief Micheal T. Williams. Just because 20 blacks of assorted ages beat a lone white guy to a pulp, sending him to the hospital in critical condition, is no reason to assume that this was racially motivated? Why, the blacks were just showing their appreciation. No hate crime here. Don’t look and just move on, right?
What happens if the same thing happens, but it’s a lone black guy and 20 whites? Would that be racially motivated? Would that be a hate crime? You bet, but this is different because blacks are a “protected” species in PC America.
His age has nothing to do with anything.
Additionally, if they want to use “unarmed” they need to be more accurate with “...unarmed, but physically attacking Mr. Zimmerman...”
>>white Hispanics (whatever in hell that is)<<
Another way for Uncle Sugar to create a fog in regards to statistical crime reporting on a federal level.
If the real numbers were to be reported concerning crimes broken down by ethnicity, folks would recoil....hey, wait a minute!
You mean to tell me that majority of crimes are committed by...Mexicans or blacks? A third of our prison population are illegal alien Mexicans? Say it isn’t so.
While upgrading the wire, make sure you install the “foo gas”, Claymores, and Bouncing Betty's. Make certain you have clear fields of fire and the mortars are registered on the primary avenues of approach.
Well, he might a been axkin for it. Maybe he said “a fighting word.” Maybe HE is the perpetrator of da hatz crim.
