‘Trayvon’ Shouted as Group Attacks Good Samaritan

Chad Smith, The Gainesville Sun, April 12, 2012

The name of Trayvon Martin was invoked again Wednesday night in Gainesville during an attack by a group that police say stomped on a white man who was scuffling with a black robbery suspect on the Bo Diddley Community Plaza.

The robbery suspect, Carl Milton Babb, 50, had been released from prison earlier in the day after serving more than two years in prison for the same crime he is accused of committing Wednesday—snatching a purse from a woman near the downtown plaza.

According to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report, Babb approached a woman eating dinner at the Lunchbox on the plaza at about 8:50 p.m. and asked her for a light.

When she said she didn’t have one, Babb took off with her purse, which contained her $500 cellphone, according to the report.

The woman’s dinner companion and another person took off after Babb.

When her friend caught up with Babb, according to the police report, Babb punched him in the face and grabbed his hair, but he was able to keep Babb pinned down, according to the report.

The scene attracted a crowd, and a number of people on the plaza approached Babb and the Good Samaritan, who tried to explain that Babb had just stolen his friend’s purse.

GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri said some members of the crowd shouted “Trayvon!” and that at least three of members of the crowd began stomping on the hands of the woman’s friend to force him to let go of Babb.


Valuri said some witnesses to the robbery tried to calm down the crowd, affirming the victim’s story that he was trying to stop a man accused of a crime and retrieve his friend’s purse.

“The crowd was acting off of emotion without knowing all of the facts of this case,” Valuri said, adding that investigators didn’t immediately know the names or races of the men or women who stomped on the victim.

It was the second attack in the past week in Gainesville in which assailants yelled the first name of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black 17-year-old who was shot and killed by crime-watch volunteer George Zimmerman as the teen walked back to his father’s girlfriend’s apartment in Sanford on Feb. 26.


In Gainesville early Saturday, a 27-year-old white man was beaten by a group of between five and eight black men as he walked home on Southwest 23rd Terrace, police said.


According to the GPD report, Babb told Officer Jon Rappa he was “high on crack and doesn’t remember what happened.”

He also said he had been released from prison earlier in the day.

The officer checked with the Florida Department of Corrections, and it was true.

Babb was released Wednesday from Holmes Correctional Institution in Bonifay after serving two years and two months after he was convicted of felony battery and petit theft for a purse snatching.

    Wow, when I was in elementary school (smallish white minority), back in the 70’s, “Roots” was aired a couple times. You know how you just know something BAD is coming your way? I wonder why they don’t still show “Roots”, as it was really good at stirring up some anti-white action!
    Now it shall be “Saint Trayvon”tm Hmmm seems they always have something.
    Wasn’t “Roots” found to be a plagiarized fiction stolen by My Haley. Didn’t see that on the news, or get an apology for the abuse I suffered from his actions.

    • The_Bobster

      The schools are still showing “Roots” to their students and presenting it as non-fiction. No mention of Haley’s plagiarism.

    …adding that investigators didn’t immediately know the names or races
    of the men or women who stomped on the victim.

    Well, of COURSE NOT. I mean, I ALWAYS scream “Trayvon” when I go to the bank or
    Walmart or to a restaurant. Don’t you?!

    • Natassia

      Latiesha, LaShawnda, Dayshon… I know their names. ;-P

      • Yeah. I remember years ago it was Tyrone and Willie. Guess they wore those out.

    • Actually, it took him until 8:50 to be caught committing another robbery. I’m not convinced that was his first robbery of the day, despite being released from custody only hours before.

  • No

    Time to start shouting “ROSEWOOD!”

    Unfortunately, most blacks are so dumb they’ll think you’re advertising some new type of weed.

  • StivD

    There was no misunderstanding. Blacks think they have a right, or an out, to commit crimes against whites because of X. Take your pick of poisons. Crime is their due. Most of them probably even think that Trayvon was guilty or suspicious, but they don’t care.

    • Rocky Bass

      Of course, you really think they thought OJ was innocent? I say they full well knew he was guilty as sin, and thought it just a little “payback”. These folks will NEVER get enough “payback” against whites to suit them. In reality, they want payback against their defective genetics if you ask me.

  • 1proactive2

    The Good Samaritan violated the first rule of the ghetto; If you are white, don’t ever confront or stand up to a black thug when other blacks are nearby.  Blacks love their thugs.

    • That reminds me of the ongoing skit from “Hee-Haw!” in which Roy Clark runs into Archie Campbell’s doctor’s office and yells, “Hey, doc, I just got my arm broke in seven different places!” and Archie swats him and yells back, “Then don’t go INTO them places!”

      If you’re White, for God’s sake don’t go into black neighborhoods — unless you go in groups, and are well-armed.

  • ed91

    blacks will go with a black thief over a white good samaritan every time…….

    wise up white fools.

  • The thugs were “acting out of emotion”?! Just imagine blacks doing that. Never heard of such a thing, have we?

    Blacks don’t need an excuse to gang up on an isolated White person and beat them; they’ll do it any chance they get. But the officer was right about the “emotion”. It has been ginned up by our irresponsible mainstream media. They would have us believe that the death of one teenage punk who picked on the wrong guy, justifies the killings, beatings, sucker-punchings, “knockout-games,” ad nauseum, that hundreds of White people have suffered at the hands of blacks over the past 40-odd years, since the misbegotten Congress of 1965-66, “Landslide Lyndon’s Boys,” passed all the Civil Rights laws and the other well-intended laws to benefits blacks, which have had grievously bad unintended consequences.

    As a matter of fact, maybe George Zimmerman and the guys in Tulsa the other day just got us some of our own back. And I’m not defending killings; but what goes around, finally comes around.

  • Don’t hold your breath waiting for that.

    • crazy_j

      All this means is that, in the ensuing race riots and civil unrest, news agencies and those in their employ are to be considered enemy collaborators, and therefore targets.

  • SarahConnor

    Personally, as a White woman, I would never let a Black get that close to me to ask a question even if I offended him as well as I would never leave my purse just setting there on the table. I usually put my purse under my leg since it has a gun in it. 

    I have probably offended many minorities in my life but I have never been attacked, robbed, raped , etc….

    • MekongDelta69

      Don’t worry about offending the ‘poor oppressed’ minorities. *Anything* you do would offend them. Just the fact that you’re white and breathing offends them.

      Just worry about yourself and keep packin’…

    I do, and I live on the opposite end of the country.

      ^That would be a “Man Bites Dog” headline extraordinaire

      • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

         Here to report that here on the opposite end of the country, Portland, OR, we have had our first black flash mob robberies, two in the past week.  To add to that, yesterday, a young white male at a public basketball court in a nice neighborhood was shot in the stomach and arm by a black man who sped away in a car.  The white kid is in critical condition and the black shooter has not been found.

        • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

           It was on our local news last night.  I will look for the online local newspaper and see if it is there and if there are any updates.  I will paste the URL if I find one.

        • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

          They are now saying that is “might” be gang related.  But it didn’t sound like it last night during the live report.


          Also, here is a link to a story about a 57 year old many being beat up for asking a group of young black men to quiet down;


          Finally, a report on the second flash mob in Portland in a week.  This is new to the NorthWest, at least the Portland region;


          The local online news service is not mentioning the shooting at all.

    • Whiteyyyyy

      That’s the sick bit, when they add insult to injury. They always have to throw in a line like that.

    I agree that if it were my girlfriend or wife, they guy would be toast. I’d grab his ankles in each hand and make a wish, if you get my meaning. I was just being sarcastic. My point was to say that blacks will destroy any non-black who interrupts black chaos and crime.

  • You make good points. The White guy did the right thing, under the circumstances. I suspect they weren’t actually in a “black neighborhood,” but were unlucky enough to encounter a bunch of blacks “downtown.”

    Here is how you can know you’re about to get mugged or murdered by a black in their areas: 

    The black will almost always come up to you with a smile.  That’s the disarm. 

    They’ll try to engage you in small talk, ask for money, a ride, or directions.  That’s the distract. 

    The comes the move, and it will almost always be violent. That’s the payday. 

    Burn this in your memory banks, non-black people.   

    • jackryanvb

      Yes, this is true. 

      The best response is a calm shrug and move on (response to “got a light”? “don’t smoke”)

      Watch the approaching Black out of the corner of your eye, project an air of calm confidence, but not arrogance.  Practice your one handed knife draw, knife open and be prepared to go for the kindneys. It’s an animal instinct type thing and predatory Black thugs can smell fear and danger – if you are ready, willing and able to kill, most Black predatory thugs can smell this and will choose some other victim.

  • “The crowd was acting off of emotion without knowing all of the facts of this case,” Valuri said.

    Yes…blacks seem to always act off of “emotion.”

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    This is what it’s come to:  Immunity for criminal blacks.

    It is the basis and message of “critical theory”, what Holder advocates and the 0bama regime supports.

    Whites have to be continually aware of attacks by blacks and accusations of racist profiling from the government.  Do not assume the government will protect us Whites and do not believe not defending yourself and becoming a victim will win you any awards.  The U.S. government’s mission is to punish Whites.

    Defending yourself with deadly force is human nature and we will do this no matter the outcome of the Trayvon Martin case.

    If blacks want to “Trayvon” people, they are going to be “Zimmerman-ed.”

    If they yell “Trayvon”, unload the clip and shout “Zimmerman.”


  • KenelmDigby

    You notice in the story how the miscreant robbed a woman of her purse *on the very same day of his release from prison for serving a two year sentence for the same offence !!!*

    Good Grief!

    Now, the difference between a wild and domesticated animal is that it is literally impossible to ‘teach’ a wild animal anything, it will always act according to its wild instincts.If you put a lamb in the same cage as a wolf, the wolf will kill and devour the lamb, no doubt about it, no amount of training or ‘conditioning’ from cub-hood onwards can ever change that fact. In contrast a good domestic dog would not do this, even if its instincts are telling it to do so, because it is amenable to being ‘taught’ ‘acceptable behavior’ by ‘higher authority’.
     By his actions, Carl Milton Babb resembles a wild animal more than he does a Homo Sapien.

    Facts? They don’t need no stinkin’ facts. Libtards and Bantus never operate off of facts. It’s all race and emotion with them.

  • Jake32

    The whole case involving Zimmerman stinks to the high heavens and is giving blacks an excuse to act out.  The first thing that stinks is the picture  of Martin as a 12 year old boy.  In reality, Martin was well over six feet tall and was a tough looking customer.  The only solid evidence surrounding the incident is the fact that Martin attacked Zimmerman and broke his nose  and knocked him down and then started banging his head.   Zimmerman called out for help and finally resorted to shooting Martin.   I don’t now how you get 2nd degree murder out of that?
    It seems the media and others are pandering to the black population and completely distorting the facts of t he incident.   I’ll say it again, this case stinks to the high heavens!!!!!

     “The crowd was acting off of emotion without knowing all of the facts.”

    America’s epitaph.

  • ViktorNN

    This is something like the third or fourth case I’ve heard about where black mobs have attacked  lone whites in perceived “retaliation” for the Martin/Zimmerman incident. There have also been death threats, threatening phone calls, and nasty mail sent to the couple whose address Spike Lee tweeted. A few nights ago a police car was shot up in Sanford.

    To me, this qualifies as a wave of race-related black-on-white (or just black vs. police in the case of the shooting incident) violence. 

    We all know what the media coverage would be like if whites were unleashing a comparable wave of violence on blacks.

    But blacks visiting violent vengeance on whites?

    You could hear a pin drop.

    You wouldn’t even know it’s happening unless you pay special attention for it, such as visiting sites like Amren.

  • Rocky Bass

     ” Those blacks, mainly Christians, who’ve rejected a whole culture and
    mythos,  are moral, spiritual giants; it may be they are biological
    giants, too, in whom reason and conscience overcome and re-configure the
    rest of the self.”
    I completely agree with that statement, though their number is fleetingly small I fear.

  • That’s as good a summing up of the situation as I’ve ever read. It’s exactly the way it is — nowadays. There was a time that a black who attacked or “sucker-punched” a White man on a public street would have been immediately ganged up on and beaten half to death by all the other White men who witnessed it. But that doesn’t happen any more. We’ve been “neutered.”

  • 20670

    I wonder if the white guy in Tulsa, Jacob England,  shouted in rage the name of his father when he targeted the shooting deaths of African Americans/blacks?

  • jackryanvb

    We are seeing daily occurrences of Black mob attacks, Black mob terror and yes, Black mob rule.

    It was the same in New York City in the late 80s, early 90s when I lived there. It’s even many of the same Black mob demagogues – Al Sharpton inciting these mobs.

    The event that really turned the tide in New York City was the Black mob attacks against Jews in Crown Heights Brooklyn – a full out, anti Jewish pogrom. That was even too much for New York City and things changed in a hurry.  Find some local Whites with some courage – look for Whites a bit on the margins like tough lower class Italians, maybe in Florida some Whiter Hispanics.

    Remember it was a rough Corsican that finally ended the mob rule in the French Revolution, Reign of Terror.

    Don’t look for 80 year old Libertarian, Constitutionalists legal experts to be be any factor.

  • jackryanvb

    Zorro – the Ron Paul campaign is over, long over. He was never a contender. Everyone reading American Renaissance must understand that race denying Libertarianism is no help to us. It’s not a big misunderstanding – we’re facing Black criminal mob terror. We’re not going to appease these mobs by offering them vouchers to attend White private schools, legalizing crack cocaine and letting the Black urban underclass do whatever they like.

  • Shawn_thefemale

    I’m certain each of these self-appointed pinnacles of justice paid mama Trayvon their share of the trademarked name they ‘borrowed’.

  • Remember this kind of thing, as the media presents its Narrative of saintly Blacks, all-White lynch mobs and always-White lynch mob mentality, etc.

    Ever seen a Black lynch mob on TeeVee?  Much less, a Black mob lynching a White?

    In fact, that’s a very, very, very useful general question to ask yourself, while watching TeeVee:

    When some White guy threatens a woman with rape, ask yourself: “have I ever seen a Black equivalent?”

    When there’s some drunken White slob beating his wife, ask yourself: “have I ever seen a Black equivalent?  How often?”

    When there’s some pathological White romantic relationship, ask yourself: “have I ever seen the Black male/White female equivalent?  How often?”

    When there’s some disgusting incestuous relationship between two blond Whites (Boardwalk Empire, Rome, etc), ask yourself: “have I ever seen a Black equivalent?  How often?”

    When The Simpsons is doing its “slack-jawed yokel” routine, ask yourself: “have I ever seen a Black equivalent?  How often?”

    Black male/White female relationships are particularly blatant in this regard. They’re never pathological. They’re always idealized. To the media, “drama” means all kinds of pathology in relationships, but this comes to a screeching halt for all the BM/WF relationships in particular, and interracial relationships in general.

    (You can substitute in YKW for “black” here, and it still works)

    Et cetera.

  •  Sherman gets it.

  •  What was he supposed to do?

    Tase the perp.  Mace the intervening idiot lynch-mob Blacks.  Go home and score.
