Black teen charged with a hate crime he was upset about the Trayvon Martin Case.

A Black suburban Chicago teen has been charged with a hate crime after
allegedly attacking a white man because he was upset about the Trayvon
Martin Case.

Alton Hayes III, 18, allegedly approached a 19-year-old white male in
Oak Park, Ill. and said "empty your pockets, white boy," Oak Park Patch
reports. Hayes and an unidentified 15-year-old accomplice then proceeded to beat the man before running off, police told Patch.

After his arrest, Hayes reportedly told officers he was upset about the Martin case in Florida, and beat up the victim because he was white, CBS Chicago reports.



Martin, 17, was gunned down by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman on Feb. 26 near his Florida home. He was unarmed at the time, and his death sparked national outrage.



Hayes isn't the only person who has been charged in attacks allegedly stemming from the Martin case.



On Saturday, a group of African American youths allegedly beat white Mobile, Alabama resident Matthew Owens . Owens was critically injured in the attack, and the youths allegedly said "now that's justice for Trayvon" after the beating.



The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement to Patch condemning the Chicago area attack:



“We deplore this apparently bias-motivated attack. We
applaud law enforcement for taking this incident seriously and enhancing
the charge. Hate crimes have an impact far beyond the individual
victim of the crime," Lonnie Nasatir, the group's greater Chicago
director, said in a statement. "When a victim is chosen because of his
or her race, other members of that group feel unsafe and unwelcome. Law
enforcement’s response to this crime helps to send a clear message that
hate crimes will not be tolerated.”

  • THIS IS FROM 1995. CAN SOMEONE GET THE LASTEST NO# AND POST THEM.
    According to the latest annual report on murder by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, most inter-racial murders involve black assailants and white victims, with blacks murdering whites at 18 times the rate that whites murder blacks.

    These breathtaking disparities began to emerge in the mid-1960's, when there was a sharp increase in black crime against whites, an upsurge which, not coincidentally, corresponds exactly with the be More..

    • @waterlawman
      well..."progressive thinkers" will counter your statment as being "skewed"
      Obviously, since there are far, far more anglo americans than afro americans,
      the median #'s indicate otherwise and is very normal expectant result.

      So, your data still shows african americans are withing the zone of behavioral expectancy,
      see ?

  • I keep hearing about how folks are so outraged by Martin's death. Perhaps they should be. Yet to use it as an excuse to promote racial violence is intolerable and should be prosecuted to maximum effect.
    Look to the past, this is not the first time something like this has developed.
    Speaks of certain subcultures in the US.

  • okay, give him max sentence. There is no reason for the action. If that were the case, white people should be going around EVERY day and doing the same thing to black people.
