Not surprised.

"Police say Jogger Attacked in Wake of Zimmerman Verdict"

A man jogging alongside a Mississippi highway was abducted and beaten by three African-American men allegedly in retaliation of the George Zimmerman verdict, police told Fox News.

Senatobia Police Chief Steve Holt told Fox News the victim, who is white, was jogging Sunday night along Highway 51 when the suspects pulled over and ordered him to get inside their car.

“One of them asked, ‘Do you know who Trayvon Martin was?’” Holt said. At that point, the men in the vehicle attacked the victim.

Memphis television station WREG reported the assailants told the victim, “This is for Trayvon.” The television station and The Democrat newspaper reported the jogger was badly beaten and later dropped off on a road between Senatobia and Coldwater, Miss.

The victim, who the chief described as a young man who lives in the area, was treated at a local hospital. He refused to elaborate on the extent of the victim’s injuries or whether he was hospitalized.

The police chief also declined to release any other details in the attack other than to say they are searching for three black males in a white, four-door vehicle.

“We want to find out why this happened,” the chief said, while also cautioning local residents to “be safe.”

The police department is urging local residents who might have information to contact Crimestoppers at 662-301-1111.

While this is sad, and I feel bad for the man who was beaten, I do not take 'allegedly' as fact...

And who said this was ok?

Why isn't the sheriff talking about attaching a hate crime enhancement on this crime? Seems like if that's in fact how it went down, it would apply.

I wish the victim a speedy recovery.

Probably the same trolls who spread fake riot posts using old footage.

Why would some one find this to be okay?

The only people I see furthering the bullshit are those continually posting and posting about the other criminals out there, those just like Zimmerman.

That is sad.

All of those who are doing what they are doing, they all damn well better be held accountable.  Don't hold your breath, however.  At least not in FL.
