Alton Hayes, I Beat Up a White Boy Because...

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 the full story on this is likely yet to be told. I caution the right to be reserved in its 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 remain in balance.

That aside, I can not help but wonder if; 1) The left 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 Reverend's 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 what seems to be obvious questions.

I recognize the severity of each of these alleged crimes is vastly different and the impact of one is not even comparable to the other. However, the fact that racism was invoked in the Martin case certainly justifies the question if the hate crime by Alton Hayes was indeed racially inspired and motivated.

I eagerly await a response from the left.

    1. Oh I won't. The left will be silent on this. Or they will blame the "white boy" for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or worse, if they can find a way to scream racism and sffix the blame on the innocent "white boy" I'm sure they will. I've become very jaundiced as well disgusted with the left's hypocrisy of late.

      If I were a betting man I'd bet my life's savings as well as my retirement on the odds not a single lefty will pay one bit of attention to this story.

  2. What you don't recognize (write) is the history of white on black crime (mistreatment, slavery) that justified (in the eyes of the people, politicians and our justice system) hate crime bills. Targeted to change the culture of generational bigotry, which includes crimes against gays because they are gay, and crimes against other minorities, just for who they are. Things are not equal, even in the sphere of crime. It's common for the law to give different punishment, for the same crime, depending on the circumstances (gun used, severity of physical abuse, etc.)
    Mr. Hayes told us why he beat the white kid, and convicted himself. I don't believe Mr. Zimmerman has made any such statement. My opinion, the Zimmerman case had nothing to do with race. It's the Sharpton's of the media, that are race baiting the Zimmerman case.

    1. Oh I get everything you said. I also agree with the premise(s)on which you base your statements.

      Okay, Alton told us why he did it. Does that excuse it? Does it mean it wasn't racially motivated, (racist).

      Glad you understand that the Zimmerman / Martin case had nothing to do with race. Also that you realize it is Sharpton, Jackson, and the race hustlers of the media who are race baiting the case.

      The AG in the case has done a fine job thus far. She has been impressive and my belief that impartial justice will ultimately be served has just gotten a boost.

  3. As predicted, and sadly so, nary a lefty (save anon) has had the integrity (to comment on this) let alone condemn the act.

    The typical left double standard on race.

  4. This completely innocent white man was attacked by this black man just due to his color. It is against everything we believe in that we should be equal citizens. This is an outrage and believe Alton Hayes deserves the highest allowed punishment due to his acts. The good book does not say that this should occur, nor does it say that this is right. We must stand behind the law and allow this man to be prosecuted accordingly. The white community is outraged and believe this will continue to occur if an example is not set!
