WASHINGTON. D.C.(NewsCore Updated)- Dozens of people marched Tuesday night in northwest Washington in support of three recent victims of possible hate crimes in which police say that is motivated by not only the crime itself but by the Trayvon Martin case in Sanford, Florida and the bad economy and Chief Lanier is telling the public that looting and rioting are quite imminent across the U.S. due to the issues over the Trayvon Martin case and that D.C. is going to be plagued by such crime that she may have to call in the National Guard to deal with the rising crime in the district.
Anyway, the march began at the IHOP at 14th and Irving, where police say a gay man was shot last weekend after being taunted by another restaurant customer who told him that "your hubby down in Florida rigged up my buddy up here and I want revenge and you made him do it" before attacking him the way she did.
The week before, a gay man was beaten and robbed at Georgia Avenue and Irving Street, and a transgender woman was assaulted in northeast Washington in which police say are somewhat attributed to the case in Sanford, Florida along with the bad economy coinciding with the general rise in crime.
So far, no arrests have been made in any of the three cases, though police say they're close to an arrest in the IHOP shooting.
None of the victims' injuries was life-threatening.
