White Man Beaten By Black Mob in 'Retaliation For Trayvon Martin,' Hate Crime Not Suspected
Last weekend, 40-year-old Matthew Owens was beaten to a pulp on his porch in Mobile, Alabama by a group of black men, women and children after getting into a verbal spat with some kids who were playing basketball in the street. The boys left, but shortly afterward a group of adults arrived and confronted the man. The men attacked Matthew with bats, bricks and a paint can. He remains hospitalized in serious condition. While witnesses say some of the attackers (reports claim as 20 people were responsible) proclaimed the beating was “in retaliation for Trayvon Martin." The police investigators can't verify that statement and Mobile Mayor Sam Jones says there's no evidence of a hate crime. “It’s really been blown out of proportion, and I would just caution people not to be a part of threat,” Mayor Jones adds. The Internet, however, is going wild and the national media's radio silence is just fueling their anger. Where are Rev Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?
