The Toledo Blade reports that an old man was assaulted by a gang in retaliation for the killing of Trayvon Martin:
While Mr. Watts was down the boys kicked him, over and over, shouting, “[Get] that white [man]. This is for Trayvon … Trayvon lives, white [man]. Kill that white [man],” according to a police report.
Mr. Watts is 78, the assailants are teenagers.
No word if the Rev. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the Congressional Black Caucus will turn the assault into a civil rights crusade.
