Where, oh where, are the professional race-baiters now? Where is the national outcry?
Via Weasel Zippers:
The below story doesn’t mention the victim’s race but another local station’s newscast identifies him as white.
(Orlando Sentinel) — A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two men in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford.
Julius Ricardo Bender, 18, and Yahaziel Isaac Israel, 19, face charges of attempted first-degree murder, burglary with assault or battery and armed burglary.
The victim, a 50-year-old Winter Springs man whose name has not been released, is on life-support at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Deputies were called to the area of Lincoln Street and Beardall Avenue about 6:30 p.m. March 26 to investigate a report of a man being beaten, Seminole County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Heather Smith said.
They found the victim in the woods on the north side of Lincoln Street.
According to arrest affidavits:
A witness told deputies he heard someone screaming for help and saw two men pull the victim from his vehicle. He said he watched as one man held the victim and the other beat him in the head with a hammer.
After they dragged the victim into the woods, the men drove away in his sport utility vehicle, which was later found abandoned about a half-mile away on Garbo Jack Lane.
Divided States claims the attack happened at a very coincidental time:
A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two black teens in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford, Florida, the same city as the Trayvon martin case on the same day when Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and New Black Panther’s leaders rallied to protest a tumped-up racial profiling case with Trayvon Martin.
Making that leap in judgment seems a bit premature, and would make any declaration that the race-baiters fueled this attack no better than the mainstream media. But let’s see how many news outlets actually report this case. I’m taking odds that it will be far less than the Martin case.
