    Suspect claims he attacked white teen because he was angry over Trayvon case, police

    Suspect claims he attacked white teen because he was angry over Trayvon case, police say | Fox News

    And another one. Crap like this is only helping fuel the racial tension. It is only going to get worse as this stuff keeps happened. This is a result of the media lies that were told in the Martin case and NBPP calling for violence IMO.

    Police say Hayes and his teenage partner, who has not been named since he is a juvenile, picked the man apparently at random and pinned his arms to the side.
    Hayes allegedly then picked up a tree branch and demanded the victim give them his belongings, saying, "Empty your pockets, white boy."

    MyFoxChicago reports Hayes told police he decided to attack his victim because he is angry over the death of Trayvon Martin. Hayes said he chose his victim because he is white.

    Let me guess, no comment coming from the White House on this one either.

    Sounds more like a (failed) excuse than a reason. I certainly see no reason to give his statement any credit or publicity.

    Actually, there are two reasons. First, it will sell and second, it will help feed the race war some people seem determined to kick-off.

    looks like he is mentioning the Trayvon Murder case, to excuse his mugging.

    That was just an excuse to act unruly. What would the excuse have been if the TM case was not publicized?

    That would be dumb since mentioning the Martin case ups the charges against him. This is more likely a case of people acting on the NBPP instruction to commit violence and the media's misrepresentation in this case early on. Some people tried very hard to rile up people and it worked. This is what irresponsible reporting can cause. This is the 2nd case where Martin was mentioned in a beating. How many more are happened where people are doing it and getting away with it? How many are people beating someone and not mentioning trayvon but thinking it in their mind?

    I could see that being the case early on before Zimmerman was arrested and there wasn't a trial, but sinec Zimmerman HAS been arrested and there will be a trial I don't think this is the case.

    I think the teen is just using this to try and "excuse" his crimes of mugging and to paint a picture of "frustrated teen" and not a criminal like he is.

    Possibly true - and horrendously shameful if the that is now 'an excuse' for being a ****hole
