Mobile Police on mob attack: no corroboration yet on allegation of racial motive
Alabama Live ^ | April 24, 2012 | Robert McClendon

Posted on 04/24/2012 11:01:03 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

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.

If the victim was black and the mob white no corroboration would be necessary. The Lame Stream Media and the black race hustlers would be convicting every white person ever to walk the face of Earth without any evidence.

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) ?

Lack of corroboration didn't stop Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, Farrakhan and NBC. This guy's sister heard them say it....that's corroboration.

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

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.

Propagandizing phrase.

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...”

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.

“I’ve got the ammo... looking into upgrading the “wire” now.”

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.

I encourage all FReepers to send this story to their congressional reps and demand an investigation by the FBI. This is the latest in a series of black on white hate crimes fueled by the Trayvon Martin incident and the race hustling of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

Mayor Sam Jones cautioned the public not to jump to conclusions and to wait until the investigation had revealed the facts

Jones said that, if the attackers think they can get away with attacking someone by invoking the Martin case, they are in for a rude surprise.

“If people think we are going to tolerate that to bring attention to some national event, they are sorely mistaken. They will be arrested and prosecuted for assault or whatever the appropriate charge may be,” he said.

(S)he must have made a return engagement on MY behalf yesterday then.

Heavily substantiated, inconvenient truths (see “The Bell Curve”, et al), are still sadly: “He, whose name must not be spoken”.

I’m not sure how that illuminating chart of IQ by country (~race) made it through the other day.....

I know what you mean,
though I have trouble with the conclusions some draw from “The Bell Curve”.

I believe the IQ difference is more due to cultural than genetic differences. I’d like to see a study of a group of black kids raised in “white culture”, ie, a culture that values success in academics, and see if these differences disappear.

"Ping. How hard do you avoid “going into town”? "

I go downtown to the VA Clinic once per month. I told my friend today that I'd suppliment my pocket Ruger 380 with my 40 shot 9mm when I make that trip now.

I also told my friend to watch for this headline:

"Black Youths Attack Old White Man, 15 Dead, Many Injured, Old Man Okay"
