Police say Jogger Attacked in Wake of Zimmerman Verdict
Fow News ^ | July 15, 2013 | Todd Starnes

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 victim’s 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.

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.

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.

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.

I guess if we’re all Zimmerman now, we’d better all carry concealed, with a round in the chamber. Works for me.

I don’t understand concealed carry. Why not pack it in view so none will mess with you. Well very few anyway.

Look at it from a criminal's perspective. With CCW's around, the criminal never knows who might or who might not be packing, so in theory the incentive is always there to NOT engage in criminal actions against someone.

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.

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?

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.
