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.

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?

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.
