Alton L. Hayes III

Here we have it folks. A black youth beats the sh*t out of a white youth in Chicago. His reason? Because the dude was white and Alton is pissed off about the Trayvon Martin shooting.

Excerpt from Fox Chicago:

Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.

Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”

The two allegedly rifled through the victim’s pockets, then threw him to the ground and punched him “numerous times” in the head and back before running away, police said. Hayes and the boy are black; the victim is white.

After being arrested, Hayes told police he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up because he was white, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said, citing court records. {The Rest}

I acknowledge, being the rational conservative/libertarian that I strive to be, that the full story on this is likely yet to be told. I caution the right to be reserved in their response to what appears to be a racially motivated hate crime. We must allow the wheels of justice to function as they should and trust the scales of justice to remain in balance…

That aside, I cannot help but wonder if; 1) The leftists who immediately tried and convicted Zimmerman will be as quick in response to what appears to be a racially motivated hate crime? 2) Will the reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton be found criticizing this racially motivated hate crime against a white youth? 3) Will the President speak out on national television condemning this act of racial intolerance and hate? 4) Will the rabid left acknowledge their rank hypocrisy if they don’t? Just a few seemingly obvious questions.

I recognize the severity of each of these alleged crimes is vastly different (Hayes vs. Zimmerman) and the impact of one is not even comparable to the other. However, the fact that racism was invoked in the Zimmerman case certainly begs the obvious: shouldn’t the race factor be considered in this case too?

I eagerly await a response from the left.

  1. As expected, not a peep from anyone on the left regarding this story. They are as predictable as the sun rising every morning.

    1. Sadly it is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
