Well, suddenly on the news tonight - the city commission of Sanford will not accept the Police Chief's resignation.

They will also have a march in Sanford for the support of George Zimmerman.

Good for you, Sanford.

They are taking up a collection for the legal services for George Zimmerman also.

Man Beaten By Mob, In Critical Condition

By: WKRG Staff | WKRG
Published: April 23, 2012 Updated: April 23, 2012 - 6:55 PM
MOBILE, Alabama --

Matthew Owens lying in the ICU at USA Medical Center.

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 AMERICANS, 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.

FOLLOWUP FROM MAN BEATEN WITH PIPES, CHAIRS, PAINT CANS, ETC:

Heard as they walked away:

"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 Samford, Florida."

I know I'm an American (just a plain AMERICAN, no hyphen!) and I'm damn proud of it. My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War and for generations have worked, obeyed the law, and helped to make this country great. Many members of my family served proudly in the armed forces. Some still do. We've been farmers, we've been physicians, attorneys, electricians, railroad workers, nurses, and a host of other jobs. What we have NEVER been is a drain on society. No one in my family has ever asked the government to house, clothe, feed or take care of us. It is long past time that the black community as a whole stood up and stopped whining. Many nationalities faced immense hardships when they first immigrated to the United States. I see my high-achieving black friends, colleagues and neighbors cringing at the sight of the baggy-pants, hoodie-wearing thugs, and their embarrassment when people lump them in with that lowlife. I see their anger when people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton presume to speak for them. Many of them thought that Barack Obama would be a role model, proof that not all black people are like the ghetto trash......and I see their shame that he and his wife behave like they just came out of the TV sitcom "Movin' On Up". I see their shame that Trayvon Martin's family is so dishonest about what their son was and why he died. People like the Martin/Fulton clan are not just a pain in the collective white butt, they are an embarrassment and a cause of shame for the non-ghetto, non-trash black community. I say it is long past time that we abandon false white guilt and let the ghetto rats figure out for themselves how to survive. The rest of the black community has managed it.....if the ghetto rats are too stupid, too lazy, too "entitled" to do it for themselves, let them starve.
Are you saying that no member of your family has EVER received unemployment compensation, or for that matter, Medicare, or Social Security benefits? How about those whom you alleged served their country in the military; any of them ever got VA benefits, or for that matter a VA loan to buy a house?

Of course you're going to answer no to all, if you say anything. But, in the highly unlikely event you dare to be HONEST, for a change, perhaps you'd want to reconsider your claims.

BTW, remain silent, and we'll just infer some member of your family, ancestors, or perhaps even YOU, has received some form of guvmnt benefit at some point in life, however brief it may have been. Which, of course, denies your statement and fills your face with egg.

You appear as an educated man Wilson. Just curious; do you know the whole truth? Remember, every story has three sides. Do you know the other two, or are you just banking all your "buck" on what the press tells you?

Have you no discernment to question the press and their motives? All they care is about inflating an already overly volatile situation while treating us like a mushroom (kept in the dark and fed on shit).

I'm sure you love that this story bolsters your argument. But, the question remains; do you know the whole truth?

Have you stopped to question what it was this idiot was shouting, in a black neighborhood? What would 20 whites would have done if a black man was to do something similar in the neighborhood trailer park?

C'mon dude. Don't be so g-ddamned gullible.

I love it when idiots compare VA benefits, SS, and Medicare to welfare. There is no comparison. Three of them are earned, and contributed to by those who eventually receive them. In the case of SS and Medicare, I contribute against my will. I would much prefer to invest my own money for retirement, and I'd do a better job of it than the government has done. I'd also prefer to be responsible for obtaining my own health care coverage when I turn 65, and I'd do a better job of that, too. In both cases, I'd be happy to accept a check for what I've contributed (with interest of course, since the government has had use of my money since I was 14 years old and got my first job), and I'll opt out of both programs. Veterans have earned their benefits, and a whole lot more.

Welfare on the other hand (and I include all forms, including medicaid, cash, housing assistance,food stamps, paid day care, WIC, Pell Grants, and anything else that is just handed to people and never paid back) is nothing but a handout. Most people who receive it do not pay any significant taxes, do not contribute to the community, do not do anything but sit on their ass and collect MY money. Kids who get Pell Grants are never required to pay them back, nor are they even required to go to class!!! They can take a semester, on the taxpayer's dime, to get drunk and lay around doing nothing. So no, to my knowledge, none of my family has ever asked for or received handouts. Your post was just stupid, but I indulged you with a reply. Did you get your share of attention now?

I believe the media has done quite a job on George Zimmerman. I was trying to ferret out the truth. I also lived close to Sanford, very close.

By the time they show a cherub-faced 12 year old picture of Martin, twist the words or leave out the major facts in stories by CBS, etc...I start to believe there is some bias to this story.

I also live in a town now that is run over with blacks to the point that we can't leave our houses at night for fear of being caught in the cross-fire.

I'm sick and tired of the blacks' antics. If they want to act like educated people, fine. But rioting and stomping their feet and expecting to get their way - has me looking for the truth.

I think Sanford is sick of it and they are fighting back - and I'm glad for them. Very glad. More cities should be doing that. Just on general principles.

sorry to have to disagree with you. JMO

Gotcha!...right now he can't have a gun. But that's a very good idea. I wonder if that man in Mobile will live. He looked pretty bad in the ICU bed. I hope he does.

What will the blacks demand next: "Washington sues Florida city over firefighter tests"...

The Justice Department (ERIC HOLDER!) sued the city of Jacksonville, Florida, on Monday, claiming its use of written tests to determine promotions in the city's fire department discriminates against African-Americans.

They want us to really turn into a 3rd world country, complete with outhouses and dirty drinking water so we can all have hepatitis.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/23/us-...

No other race refuses to stand on their own 2 feet!

THEY ALWAYS HAVE AN EXCUSE FOR THEIR LACK OF EDUCATION - NOW IT DISCRIMINATES AGAINST THEM TO TAKE A DARN TEST.

Are the ones you list not all government funded programs, and are there not people, of all races, who collect on these benefits for their entire lives?

I only mentioned three. You say three are earned; which three?

You contribute towards SS and Medicare against your will? Not by a long shot. You always have the choice to resign your U.S. Citizenship. Perhaps you'd like to relocate to South Africa. If you don't, then you have vicariously agreed to live and be bound by the terms of the U.S. Constitution, which gives Congress the power to levy taxes.

I love it when people with the exemplary credentials of a GED, express acrimony and allude to their omnipotent fountain of knowledge by stating they can do better than those who are financial planning and health care experts, especially when their only recourse rests solely on a market unequivocally controlled by greedy capitalists. However, please, do tell how. Iím interested in your proposal. Would it, by some variance of what amounts to stashing your cash under your mattress?

Oh, Iím sure youíll take a check, with interest. One question pinhead; do you get the proverbial ďmassiveĒ tax refund check every year? Or, are you smart enough to know that a big fat tax refund check means youíve just made the Guvmnt an interest free loan? You say that veterans have earned their benefits. I wonder; do you know the meaning of these two words: Service Connected? Iím a combat vet (Desert Storm). You think I can just waltz into my local, or any VA hospital and be treated for any ailment I may experience?

Are you saying I should pay back my Pell Grants? Or should I reimburse the State of Florida for paying off my student loans as a benefit of serving as an Assistant State Attorney, drawing the salary of a legal secretary, while the rest of my peers were earning a 6 figure income? Perhaps you may agree an offset would be adequate.

I see. So my statement about your exemplary credentials of a GED are accurate, and neither you, nor anyone in your family has ever been pregnant and accepted WIC milk or cheese, or pre-natal care at a public clinic, or for that matter, if either you, or any of the women in your family has ever succumbed to the carnal passion of sex, from which an unwanted pregnancy has ensued, and if so, you, or them, have breast fed your kids until the age of 10. How awesome.

Got to tell you; if so, youíre the epitome of independence and perhaps you should get a f*cking medal. But, somehow I still think youíre just plain full of sh*t.

Look Wilson, you're obviously closer to the proverbial "action" than I am, so in good faith, I'll defer to your account.

My question to you is; why be sick and tired of what you are sick and tired? Why not go about your business as you would have at any other time?

Do you have a CWP? If so, do you have a weapon? If your answer is in the positive, again I ask you why complain about something you're in a position to change?

I'm sure you'll recall where I've stated I'm a white Jewish man of Hispanic decent. My wife is also a white Jewish woman of Hispanic decent. We recently returned from a weekend getaway in Cibola AZ. Do you think we confined ourselves to our suite while there, for fear the local authorities would stop us and ask us for our "papers?" No my friend; this is still America. It's not Amerika, and you should have no reason to curtail your life because of the actions of anyone.

Now, and this is just a suggestion; perhaps you'd like to offer this in counter-argument, if and when you are confronted; did whites go on the same uproar when O.J. was acquited from killing Nicole and Ron Goldman?

Your opinion of me is irrelevant. And no, no one in my family has ever accepted WIC. WIC is welfare. We don't need the government to buy our milk and cheese, we work for a living. Not that my tax status is your business, but my husband and I typically write a big check to the government every April. We're not at an income level where refunds are a realistic thought, unlike those who get one without paying anything in to the system, their reward for their bastard brats. My husband and I are both professionals, loser. I do not believe you're an attorney, you're too stupid to pass the bar. In fact, I'd guess you go into every bar you pass and have more than a few. Pell Grants are welfare, however you choose to rationalize. Anything that the government hands you without expectation of repayment is welfare, no matter how it is disguised. Now I'm really done with you. You're stupid, you're boring, and you're a liar. I despise liars.

In short, you're an enigma; a non-reality to me, and I could careless whether you live or die.

BTW, the amount of undeniable prejudice and bias you display in your writing, unequivocally denies the objectivity with which true professionals conduct themselves. So, please don't even compare yourself to a true professional. And if you and your husband write a big fat check at tax time, then that further validates your lack of intellect and means to hire a professional financial planner to set up tax shelters and avail yourselves of all available, and legal, means to avoid overpaying income tax, which also denies your status as a true professional.

Maybe you're a home maker, or pizza engineer, or for that matter, a provider of janitorial services. But neither of those are "professionals."
