White Man Allegedly Beaten And Robbed In Retaliation For George Zimmerman Verdict

A white man was beaten and robbed by three black men in retaliation to the Geroge Zimmerman verdict, say investigators in the nation’s capital. The incident is being investigated as a possible hate crime.

A Bethesda, Md., man was shoved to the ground on a tree-lined street of stately row houses in Washington’s Adams Morgan district early Saturday, police said.

One of his three attackers screamed, “This is for Trayvon Martin” before they pushed and kicked him to the pavement and took his wallet and iPhone, investigators said.

The man had facial cuts and other minor injuries, but refused medical treatment, police said.

“There is no pattern in these types of crimes,” said police spokesman Araz Alali. “These attacks are outrageous; we are doing everything in our power to see that they certainly don’t occur. If they do occur, we are going to aggressively investigate them and bring people to justice.”

The mugging took place two weeks after a Florida jury ruled that Zimmerman was not guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Martin.

Sadly enough, we knew this kind of thing had the potential to happen if a “not guilty” verdict came down. Come on people, attacking white people will not bring Trayvon back, and it damn sure won’t fix the problems that we are having with race relations in this country.
