    Police are investigating the beating of a 27-year-old man who said he was attacked by several men who shouted “Trayvon.” | Gainesville.com

    Police are investigating the “racially motivated” beating of a 27-year-old man who was walking home from midtown bars early Saturday when he said he was jumped by five to eight men who shouted “Trayvon” before the attack.

    The attack occurred at about 2:45 a.m. in the 3200 block of Southwest 23rd Terrace.

    The victim told police that a vehicle was coming east on Southwest 32nd Place when it stopped at 23rd Terrace.

    A group of men got out and told him he was walking too slowly, the victim told police.

    They then yelled “Trayvon,” according to a GPD report, and proceeded to beat him.

    If it's true, I hope they find the assholes and throw the book at them and charge them with a hate crime.

    Grand jury canceled in Trayvon Martin case
    9 Apr.`12 - A decision not to use a grand jury by the Florida special prosecutor investigating the Trayvon Martin shooting says little about whether charges will be filed, legal experts say.

    Yes, if convicted. The bars in that area are rough, prayers for the victim.

    From the article:

    She said the victim had been drinking and could not provide a description of the attackers or their vehicle, only that it was a mid-size vehicle.

    That'll make it tougher, but I hope the catch whoever is responsible.
