Yet another racially motivated crime committed in the name of Trayvon Martin, this time in Gainesville, Florida:
Police are investigating the “racially motivated” beating of a 27-year-old man who was walking home from midtown bars early Saturday when he said he was jumped by five to eight men who shouted “Trayvon” before the attack.
“We do believe that the crime was racially motivated,” Gainesville Police Department spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said.
The assailants were black, while the victim is white, Valuri said.
She said the victim had been drinking and could not provide a description of the attackers or their vehicle, only that it was a mid-size vehicle.
But Valuri said his injuries were consistent with being jumped by a group.
It must have been an especially brutal beating.
During what he told police was a five-minute beating, he sustained injuries to the left eye, abrasions to his palms and a cut on his right kneecap, and Valuri said he would likely have “permanent disfigurement to the left side of his face.”
Rev. Al Sharpton, career race baiter, has called for civil disobedience to escalate if George Zimmerman, the Hispanic man who shot Trayvon Martin, is not arrested. He has not responded to my repeated questions regarding whether this is the type of escalation he was talking about. Considering his history and what happened at Freddy’s Fashion Mart, it’s safe to assume he knows what his rhetoric is capable of producing, therefore violence is exactly what he is talking about when he says “escalate.”
Someone is going to die before this is over and the blood will be on Rev. Al Sharpton’s hands.
