    Man Beaten By Mob, Arrests Expected Today

    Monday 6:55 p.m.Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he's in critical condition.
    According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.
    Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.
    Owens' sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. "It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed." Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using "brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on."
    Police will only say "multiple people" are involved.
    What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said "Now thats justice for Trayvon." Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida.

    Well, now let's see these same posters out there defending Treyvon Martin come in this thread and show the same of Mr. Owens.

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

    Why would you politicise this? Do you think this is Trayvon's fault?

    There are several similar assaults that have taken place since the shooting. But what do you expect after what the media reported to the American people? The Justice Ministers, Sharpton and Jackson, did their best to stir up racial hatred and even Congressional representatives called for Zimmerman's arrest and accused him of racial profiling on the House floor. President Obama was ignorant enough to involve himself and AG Holder has actually allowed a hate organization to impose a dead or alive bounty on Zimmerman. These people are as responsible for these crimes as the easily led idiots who have committed the physical assaults.

    This is a pretty brutal crime and I hope the victim makes it out okay. It's pretty impressive that he's still alive after being attacked by so many people.

    In any case, if someone did actually say, "now that's justice for Trayvon", I think that's a shame. I doubt Trayvon's family would want his name associated with this kind of violence and I think it's disrespectful to Trayvon's memory to do this in his name. It's also just plainly irrational to think that beating some random dude would bring any amount of justice for Martin.

    I also want to note that the OP's dumbass comments are stupid as hell. They are also ironic. Good job using a tragic story as a ploy to criticize those who have been commenting on another tragic story without even commenting on the tragedy of either story. Lame.

    I'm expecting Al Sharpton & Jessie to show up within the hour.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Why would I politicize this? I am not. I am not the one making the statement after beating a man into a near death experience, that 'this is for Treyvon Martin.

    Actually, you politicized it when you mentioned Eric Holder and tried to call out other posters for not doing something that they hadn't even had the chance to do. If you're going to politicize something, at least own it. Personal responsibility, isn't it?
