    Adams Morgan hate crime was motivated by Zimmerman verdict, police say

    Washington Post
    By Nicole Chavez and Stefanie Dazio, Published: July 27

    A Bethesda man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning in Adams Morgan by three men who yelled, “This is for Trayvon Martin,” before attacking him, police said.

    The incident is being investigated as a hate crime and robbery, according to D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali.

    Three black men approached an adult white male from behind while he was walking in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW at 1:26 a.m. Saturday, police said.

    Two of the men threw the victim to the ground and kicked him, Alali said. The three perpetrators then took the victim’s iPhone and wallet and fled.

    The victim suffered minor injuries and declined medical attention, authorities said.

    “There is no pattern in these types of crimes. These attacks are outrageous; we are doing everything in our power to see that they certainly don’t occur. If they do occur, we are going to aggressively investigate them and bring people to justice,” Alali said.

    Three white guys beat up a black guy in DC as #JusticeForGeorge

    This is just horrible, horrible racism.

    Jessica Chasmar at the Washington Times reports:

    “This is for George Zimmerman.”

    That’s what one of three white men told a black man as they approached him early Saturday in Washington before committing what police are saying may be a hate crime, according to Metropolitan Police Officer Anthony Clay.

    The men kicked the man, who was not identified, as they took his iPhone and wallet, the officer said Sunday, according to CNN.

    Wow, three on one. Really brave, you racists. I guess Touré Neblett is right. We really are living in Emmett Till’s America. Haven’t you done enough already, white (and therefore racist) people?

    …Wait, what? Hold on. Just a sec.

    Oh, crap. Sorry, you guys, I got that all mixed up. They didn’t say “This is for George Zimmerman,” they said “This is for Trayvon Martin.” And the three muggers were black, and the victim was white.

    Okay, forget everything I just said. This attack was not motivated by racism, and no matter what Metro PD says, it definitely was not a hate crime.

    This is different, because shut up.
