MOBILE, Alabama --
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 American, 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.
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.
(Story ends. My comments follow.)
I've tried reprimanding unruly kids. Did they listen? Nope. Did they attack me? No, but when they all gathered round talking trash I paid attention to their numbers (20 or so) and my own isolation from any possible help. Bottom line: just because the darlings are small, don't underestimate their savagery.
As for the racial angle, I'm afraid we're going to see more of this real soon. IMO it won't go away, it will soon be answered in kind by other ethnicities (and not just us white folk) and another gaping chasm will be open between people in America.
