Posted on 07/15/2013 7:19:31 PM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
A man jogging alongside a Mississippi highway was abducted and beaten by three African-American men allegedly in retaliation of the George Zimmerman verdict, police told Fox News.
Senatobia Police Chief Steve Holt told Fox News the victim, who is white, was jogging Sunday night along Highway 51 when the suspects pulled over and ordered him to get inside their car.
One of them asked, Do you know who Trayvon Martin was? Holt said. At that point, the men in the vehicle attacked the victim.
Memphis television station WREG reported the assailants told the victim, This is for Trayvon. The television station and The Democrat newspaper reported the jogger was badly beaten and later dropped off on a road between Senatobia and Coldwater, Miss.
The victim, who the chief described as a young man who lives in the area, was treated at a local hospital. He refused to elaborate on the extent of the victims injuries or whether he was hospitalized.
The police chief also declined to release any other details in the attack other than to say they are searching for three black males in a white, four-door vehicle.
We want to find out why this happened, the chief said, while also cautioning local residents to be safe.
The police department is urging local residents who might have information to contact Crimestoppers at 662-301-1111.

they don’t need a reason....
Does anybody know where OJ was at this time?
We must all get beaten to death because we deserve it. /s
Isn’t this why concealed carry was invented?
Were are all the loud mouth, rowdy, black hating skin heads when you need them /s
The source is Fow News? I know the libs call it Faux News..
He forgot the CARDINAL RULE of self-preservation in today’s world:
STAY SAFE BY STAYING ARMED!
I’m sure someone already posted something similar happened in Baltimore.
Being treated at the local hospital in Senatobia means the local vets office. This is in my neck of the woods. I just hope that it is a legit story, and not something that the guy made up.
I predict that someone will go “full tilt Bernie Goetz” before this is all over. And then you will really hear the race-baiters howl!
We want to find out why this happened, the chief said,"
Ummmm. Yo! Chief!
And you made it all the way to chief?
I walk armed, and with an extra magazine full...I walk for health reasons.....russian made pistol
good one lol
A key survival rule: never get in the perp's car! Even if unarmed, even at gunpoint, your chances are better if you don't get in their car.
I doubt it.
Things have been very subdued on both sides.
This is an isolated incident.
The riots never materialized.
Hey, the KGB used it for 60 years.
Welp. I am going to wait for more details... Prudent thing to do.
Yes, you’re all thinking what I’m thinking. Like I said, more details needed.
Another source for the story in question, no new details I see.
And these people claim to make their living investigating?!?!?!
What part of Africa where these gentlemen from, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, where?
Open season on whitey, especially creepy azz crackaz.
The Black Ku Klux Klan ain’t gonna stop until they lynch some Whitey
The Chief of Police wants to find out what happened? Did he not hear the victim? IT’S ABOUT TRAYVON!
A friend of mine in East Tennessee had three guys pull a gun on him and told him to get in the car. He did. Seems my friend had boinked the girlfriend of one of the guys. They told him they were going to take him up into the mountains and kill him. He stayed calm and started talking to them, explaining he didn’t know the girl had a boyfriend. Then he mentioned someone he knew that they knew. They ended up taking him back to town.
My friend is usually armed. Those three guys are lucky he wasn’t armed that night ‘cause he’d have shot every damned one of them.
is baltimore a carry state? i have to assume no?
How much more is Whitey going to take?
Pray for America to Wake Up
I guess if we’re all Zimmerman now, we’d better all carry concealed, with a round in the chamber. Works for me.
Is Baltimore a state?
MD is a “may issue” state. It is tremendously difficult to get a permit there.
Or it could of been a drug deal gone bad and the white dude is just blaming it on the Martin case.
Move immediately. Find a nice shall-issue state and move there.
“What part of Africa where these gentlemen from, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, where?”
These uncivilized animals need to be escorted onto a BOAT - and all of them - shipped BACK !
I hope the jogger recovers fully & I hope he is a Liberal who favors retribution for the not guilty verdict.
But don’t forget that Senatobia has a SWAT team. Like they need it.
I don’t understand concealed carry. Why not pack it in view so none will mess with you. Well very few anyway.
If firearms are required to be displayed at all times, and a criminal sees no one has a firearm, the incentive is there to commit a criminal act upon such persons.
I realize that but I’m just saying that deterrence sometimes lauds off attacks. I’d rather display a weapon and be bypassed but your point is good.
I live in Pennsylvania. No need to move.
I know but I know a person who owns a business in a high crime area who has never been robbed because all his employees weapons are plainly visible. I understand your point though.
Has Eric Holder commented on this? Has he dispatched federal investigators? Does he think it was a NECESSARY beating? Is he proud of “his” people who did this? Has he expressed outrage over racial profiling of WHITES?
Now THAT is a hate crime, a violation of the joggers civil rights.
Do not hold your breath on the federales DOJ acting on it.
omg. too funny. did i really say that?
Predictably, the Zimmerman verdict has unleashed a wave of activity by the Sons of Obama.
Anyone want to guess the race of Chief Holt, who claims he has no idea why the men beat this guy up?
I checked first, before asking the question, so I know the answer.
We will only hear about these kinds of occurrences on FR and other conservative sites. MSM will bury these attacks for as long as they can and continue to emphasize the peaceful protests. I can even believe that when things start getting “rowdy” that reporters, camera crews and helicopters are ordered off the scene.
