Police in Gainesville, Florida are investigating a “racially motivated” attack Tuesday morning that directly stemmed from the Trayvon Martin shooting. The story: Five to eight men beat up a 27-year-old white man, shouting out “Trayvon” before jumping him.
These thugs are walking double-standards. They rail against the violence that resulted in Trayvon Martin’s death. And call it racial. And then they go out and beat a white guy senseless in the name of Trayvon — obviously, with racial motives.
“We do believe that the crime was racially motivated,” a Gainesville Police spokeswoman asserted. She said the assaulters were black and that the victim was white. The man was beaten for a whole five minutes, and was left with cuts on his palms, a knee cap, and his left eye.
Funny, because they love to invoke Martin Luther King Jr. during these shenanigans. Maybe it’s a reformed version of MLK’s peaceful protest ideology — something like, “peace through violence.”
