It was very unfortunate that we witnessed the loss of a young boy named Trayvon Martin but is building up a race war the answer for justice?
A crazed mob in Alabama allegedly beat a man into a bloody pulp, and, according to eyewitnesses, then left him with the words, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
Matthew Owens is in critical condition he was attacked at his home in Mobile by a group wielding chairs, pipes, paint cans and brass knuckles, according to WKRG.
Cops told the station that after Owens yelled at a group of kids to stop playing basketball in the middle of the street, a group of about 20 African-American adults showed up at his home.
“It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed,” said Owen’s sister, Ashley Parker. Parker told WKRG she saw the attack from her house across the street.
A neighbor corroborated Parker’s claim that as the group left, someone uttered the phrase linking Owen’s beating to Trayvon Martin, the black teen who in February was fatally shot by a neighborhood watchman in Florida. Martin’s death sparked nationwide unrest as people demanded justice for the 17-year-old, who was unarmed when he was killed. Source
