Black Teenagers in Baltimore Allegedly Beat Hispanic Man While Yelling "This is For Trayvon"

Baltimore police say they are investigating a witness account that a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man near Patterson Park Sunday while saying, "This is for Trayvon."

A witness posted the account on a community Facebook page, and police confirmed they are looking into whether the suspects' reaction to the verdict in the Florida trial of George Zimmerman played a part in the incident. A police report on the beating does not mention the alleged comments.

    This happened in my neighborhood. Can't wait for the race war to break out, and I also can't wait to leave.

    But was the victim a white Hispanic? Because if so, he deserved it for having the temerity of being similar to a guy who killed a black kid (in self defense) 750 miles away.

    He should have known better than to be Hispanic.


    I hope the media is proud of itself.
