Black-on-white beating revenge for Michael Brown?

Police are investigating a brutal beating at a Mississippi restaurant that some are calling revenge for the killing of black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

A verbal alternation between two white men and up to seven black men began at a West Point, Mississippi, Waffle House shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday.

The restaurant’s management warned the two groups to “take it outside” and the two whites, Ralph Weems and David Knighten, left the scene after words were exchanged. About an hour later, the men stopped at a Huddle House restaurant and realized they had been followed by “about 20 people,” according to a local TV station. The verbal confrontation resumed and, this time, it turned violent.

When police arrived at the Huddle House about 2:10 a.m., they found Weems, a 32-year-old former Marine, lying in the parking lot severely beaten. Two men were bent over Weems trying to render aid, police said, but all of the beating suspects were gone. Weems was airlifted to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo where he underwent emergency brain surgery, according to a family member, and was put into a medically induced coma.

They should have gotten their guns...that crap won't happen when 8 or so people get shot!!! They will come across the wrong people sooner or later who will shoot first ask for names later.

Not a hate crime when 20 blacks attack 2 white men? What a stupid statement. Sounds like something Obama or O'Malley would say.

I'm tired of the "race card" and the double standard where only whites commit hate crimes. All 20 men need to be prosecuted for attempted murder - regardless of their race. It is time for both of these issues to stop. The race card needs to stop being an excuse or a rally cry for those who wish to victims to cover for their own failures. And, any o9bvious racial crime needs to either be prosecuted the same way or only as a normal crime. No double standards!!

When blacks hurt blacks, not news. When blacks hurt whites, not news. When blacks hurt anyone, not news. When blacks are hurt by non-blacks, HUGE outcry. If they can be depicted as victims, whether truthfully or not, it's media worthy.

Typical liberal spin.
They accuse whites of a war on black men when the actual truth is the black mans war on whites!
