Paging Eric Holder, paging Not-so-Sharp, paging Jesse Jackson, paging Dear Leader, paging msDNC etc etc…where are you…hmm? Your silence has been deafening!
This is a simple question to all…since the ‘Hate Crime’ bill was passed, why hasn’t it been used for the umpteenth time in cases like this one? Couldn’t be hypocrisy or double-standards…now could it?
Personally the ‘Hate Crime’ bill was and is a bunch of BS, it was used and still used for others agendas and we all know it…anyway, those of us that have a brain that works know it. Crime is crime..period. We didn’t and don’t need another agenda-driven minority law passed, simple as that..but it is what it is now.
If you haven’t heard about this…here it is via Fox:
A racially charged beating of a white Alabama man by a throng of African-Americans is not being investigated as a hate crime, despite one witness’ claim that she heard an assailant exclaim: “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
Matthew Owens, of Mobile, Ala., was assaulted with baseball bats, paint cans and other weapons at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday after telling a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive, according to Ashley Rains, public information officer for the Mobile Police Department.
After the children left the area, a group of adults armed with weapons returned and confronted Owens, 40, in his front yard, where he was assaulted. Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, told WKRG she witnessed the attack and that there were as many as 20 assailants. Parker said she overheard one of them say, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
Asked if the incident was being investigated as a hate crime, Rains replied: “No, it’s not. It’s being investigated as an assault.” Eugene A. Seidel, first assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama, declined to comment on the case when reached by FoxNews.com.
“Our policy is not to comment one way or another about cases,” Seidel said when asked if his office has inquired about the incident. “All I can say is no comment.”
Trayvon Martin, 17, is the unarmed teenager who was fatally shot Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla. George Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in Martin’s death, went into hiding Monday as he awaits trial. Emotions ran high as six weeks passed before Zimmerman was charged, leading many African-American community leaders to decry what they perceived as racism in the justice system.
“We have not been able to find any other witness that can back that statement up.”
– Ashley Rains, Mobile Police Department
Rains said Parker’s statement could not be independently corroborated as of Tuesday. Attempts to reach Parker — who reportedly characterized the assault as the “scariest thing” she ever witnessed — were unsuccessful.
“We have not been able to find any other witness that can back that statement up,” Rains told FoxNews.com. “It’s unknown right now if that was said.”
Owens, who regained consciousness early Tuesday, remains in serious condition at the University of South Alabama Medical Center, Rains said.
It remains unclear how many people participated in the assault, but Rains said it involved multiple assailants. The relationship — if any — between the children and the alleged perpetrators is also unclear, Rains said.
“We’ve spoken to the victim and we’re doing our best to put together a suspect list and identify any suspects that were in the assault,” she said.
The original video report for this story has been taken down on Fox, Youtube and everywhere else by request of someone….you can read much more about this at here at the Blaze. If you scroll down you will see a report from an eyewitness who wants to remain anonymous etc.
Here’s the most recent report below. Take a listen.
If you listened to the reporter on the street it should have frosted your flakes when she stated “This dispute that led up to accident or event“…blah blah blah. Accident or Event…give me a break folks, steam came out of both ears when I heard that…but that’s just me.
Add your thoughts about this friends…after-all, Matthew Owens could look like one of Dear Leader’s sons.
