In the name of Trayvon Martin — who was fatally shot by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, last February — six young thugs in East Toledo, Ohio, beat a 78-year-old man on the head, knocked him to the ground, kicked him in his chest, and threatened to kill “the white man.”
Taylor Dungjen reports for the Toledo Blade, April 3, 2012, that Dallas Watts, 78, was on his way home from the nearby Gas Express Mart at Starr Avenue and White Street about 4:45 p.m. Saturday when the boys approached him.
Six juveniles — the youngest 11, and the oldest 17 — nearly boxed in the old man. One pointed at him and said, “take him down.”
Watts, carrying home two small bags of pork rinds to dole out as treats to his three dachshunds, looked at the youth and said, “Why you picking on me?”
The boy, again, allegedly told his friends to “take him down.”
Watts said one of the boys delivered a single blow to the back of his head. He was knocked to the ground, then lifted from the ground so one of the boys could “drop-kick” him in the chest. One boy put his foot on the back of Watts’ neck, with another shouting, “Kill him!”
While 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.
The boys fled when a man shouted at them.
Toledo police charged two children — the 11-year-old and a 17-year-old — with robbery. The boys were ordered held in detention at the Lucas County Juvenile Justice Center, prosecutor Lori Olender said.
The 17-year-old also faces a felonious assault charge from an unrelated shooting. He had allegedly shot Mark Bolling, 24, in the 600 block of Leonard Street in East Toledo on March 18.
A Vietnam vet, Watts had raised his children to be non-violent. But now, he plans to buy a gun and obtain a permit to carry it because “What happened to me … down here on the corner, that changed my perspective on humanity.”
Dallas Watts should sue NBC, ABC, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, and all the Trayvon race hustlers for fomenting a race war in America. And if these six thugs aren’t charged with a hate crime, then there is no longer justice in America.
