The acquittal of George Zimmerman has unleashed a wave of fury unlike anything the United States has seen in a very long time. All over the country there have been incidents where young people have expressed their frustrations by committing violent acts. Someone needs to tell them that violence is definitely not the answer. No matter how you may feel about the Zimmerman verdict, there is absolutely no excuse for committing violence against innocent people. America is never going to be able to come together until we start choosing to love one another and forgive one another. Anyone that chooses to regard a certain group of people as “the enemy” because they have a different skin color is part of the problem. When you cut any of us open, we all bleed red blood on the inside. We are all brothers and sisters, and we need to start behaving that way. Unfortunately, many are choosing to go down the path of violence instead, and the list of Trayvon Martin revenge attacks is growing rapidly. The following are some of the more prominent incidents from the last couple of days…
In a post that drew nearly 50 comments on Facebook, real estate agent Christina Dudley said she was walking to her car just before 9 p.m. when she saw several young black males and two black females chasing a 37-year-old Hispanic man west on North Linwood Avenue past East Fairmont Avenue.
“One of the boys had a handgun out and it was pointed at the back of him,” Dudley said in an interview.
They caught up to the man at the corner of Fairmount and N. Streeper Street, and the male with the gun beat the victim with what appeared to be his gun while others kicked and stomped him, Dudley said.
“They were just yelling and calling him names as they ran after him, but once they were hitting him and after that they started yelling, “This is for Trayvon, [expletive],” said Dudley, who heard the chant repeated multiple times.
