    yes, I asked what the guy said to them to piss them off so much.

    I'm not justifying their attack, just trying to understand their motivation.

    Because the law is acting as it should, this has nothing to do with the Travyon Martin death.
    Maybe it does and maybe it doesn't. The USA is becoming more polarized along racial lines and it is exactly the handling of the Martin case which is bringing on extremes. Many have already been schooled in the injustices of the past and carry a chip on their shoulders. The Martin case is fuel on an already lit fire which fuels incidents like these. Denying it is nonsense.

    OK, well now it's clear. It wasn't before.

    Think Eric Holder will dispatch the 'Hate Crimes Unit' to charge these 20 adults? Or even investigate it?

    Wouldn't you expect the police to arrest the thugs if they can find them?

    I would expect some consistency from Washington. If they dispatched the DOJ or hate crimes division and if the President spoke out about TM, I expect the same in other situations, but of course there is no political advantage to this one, is there?

    This response proves that you are in the category of "I missed the point". Congratulations.

    Looks to me that you missed it. By a country mile.

    Re: Man Beaten By Mob, Arrests Expected Today

    Its pretty funny how some folks here are whining that the DOJ hasn't stepped into this case, while they did with the killing of Trayvon Martin.

    ....as if the two cases are in any way similar.

    Days after the beating (not killing) of the white man, the perps are being searched for and charges will certainly be coming.

    Meanwhile, it took the DA two months to finally decide to charge Zimmerman, and only after a MASS outcry.

    clearly, to compare these to cases, is willful dishonesty.

    This one isn't remotely as big of a deal...

    man attempts to chop up kids in his yard with kitchen knives

    local parents beat him down.

    what's the disconnect?
