Police in Washington, DC are investigating a robbery that occurred Saturday as a possible hate crime in retaliation to the not-guilty verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman.

A Bethesda, Maryland man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning by three black men who approached him as he was walking down Euclid Street in Adams Morgan district of Washington, DC.

Police are investigating the robbery as a hate crime since one of the men yelled ‘This is for Trayvon Martin’ before attacking the man.

The men threw the victim to the ground and kicked him before leaving with his wallet and iPhone.

The victim only suffered minor injuries and declined medical attention, authorities said.

‘There is no pattern in these types of crimes,’ DC police spokesman Araz Alali told the Washington Post. ‘These attacks are outrageous; we are doing everything in our power to see that they certainly don’t occur. If they do occur, we are going to aggressively investigate them and bring people to justice.’

The crime comes two weeks after a jury found George Zimmerman not-guilty of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012, even though he admitted to shooting the teen.

After the controversial verdict was handed down, Martin’s family and supporters called for non-violence.

‘It’s all right to be vocal, but we don’t want to be violent,’ Rev. Walter T. Richardson said. ‘We’ve already lost one soul and we don’t want to lose any more.

‘Please, no violence. We don’t want any violence. None,’ said Martin’s aunt Miriam Martin.

So far the reaction to the verdict has been mostly peaceful, with non-violent protests and demonstrations being held across the country.

Still, others are using the judgement as an excuse to carry out racially-motivated attacks.

A Latino man protesting the decision in Los Angeles was beaten up in the middle of the march.

Cuauhtemoc Negrete said a group of kids came up to him and told him: ‘You better blend in or you’re going to get hurt.’

They later returned and punched him once in the back of the head and stole his bike.

Another Latino man was beaten-up in Baltimore by a group of five black males.

According to witness Christina Dudley, the 37-year-old man was chased by the group.

When they caught up to him they started kicking and stomping him, while one of the men pointed a gun.

‘They were just yelling and calling him names as they ran after him, but once they were hitting him and after that they started yelling, “This is for Trayvon, (expletive),’ she said.

    He certainly represents real Americans.

      There certainly is a pattern to these kinds of crimes. They’re a direct result of Obama, media and celebutard agitation.

    Araz Alali (He must be European-American of course. /sarc) – “There is no pattern in these types of crimes.”

    Nah – Of COURSE NOT.
    There’s only a ‘pattern’ when it’s those darn ‘White Hispanics’ dole out the deserved punishment.

  • Maybe it’s time for the party to start. It isn’t going to be pretty when it does but I think a lot of people are going to be surprised at the outcome. The party in America is going to to make what supposedly happened in Germany look like child’s play.

    “There is no pattern in these types of crimes,’ DC police spokesman Araz Alali…”

    Yes, no pattern whatsoever. Just the kind of logic you’d expect from someone with that name…

    What a wonderful way to honor St. Trayvon–stealing a man’s wallet and phone and then kicking him while he’s down. It’s not surprising, is it? And for some reason, I think I know the color of the perpetrators.

    There have been many of these before now.

    There is no pattern in these types of crimes,’ DC police spokesman Araz Alali told the Washington Post.

    Only an idiot would say this.

    There is a very clear pattern “in these types of crimes”: The murderous thugs are White-hating black racists hunting down White victims for fun and murder.

    Soon, those who do not wish to be victims of this pattern will respond with a 9mm and “This is for George Martin.”

    The term “Trayvoning” — terminating savage black fiends “with extreme prejudice” will become a part of our common lexicon.

      I’ll add my own term: the youfs need to know that they could get “Zimmed” — i.e., meet with swift justice.

  • Triarius

    Pattern? No, these assaults span the nation. Common denominator? Yes, all the perps are blacks and their victims not. But maybe I am just splitting hairs.

  • Romulus

    Araz Allah lalalalal what! What the heck does he mean there no pattern for these crimes? .
    Didn’t we already establish that blacks are the most violent people in the country who commit 55% of all murders. Not only on themselves but on us!
    Let me be the first to say it appears I was wrong about bill oreilly. Seems that his producers are pushing the moral high ground narrative of the Christian ethos and blaming crime from blacks on the disintegration of family and not on the fact that the vast majority would like to replace us.

    Get used to it White America. As our numbers decline, as our inability to get a job we qualify for is ignored to promote/hire a stupid colored (but for some odd reason still termed a “minority”, even though, we Whites are on our way to becoming a racial minority), we will be constantly seen as a viable target. I mean, the Attorney General has stated that Whites can’t be victims of a hate crime. The position of Holder on every aspect of civil rights law, should tell you as a White American( White and American should be synonymous). that you are a viable and legal target. You, as a White, deserve to be attacked, maimed, killed. You have no right to fight back if your attacker is Black. The law according to Holder? AS a White it is your responsibility to take any beating directed to you. You deserve it. You are part of the White power structure. Even if you are not part of the White power structure, you deserve it anyway. Do not defend yourself with a gun. Do not defend yourself in any way that may cause harm to your Black attacker. He was on his way to becoming a rocket surgeon.

      … or to becoming our next PRESIDENT.

      I’ve noticed that since Zimmerman’s acquittal Holder became more vocal. Obama’s second term is going to be Holder’s war on “racial injustices” against his people.

      I wouldn’t be surprised that Holder was only accepted into law school because of affirmative action and nothing else.

    Police spokesman, Araz Alali? I quit.

    So you have them lying for America too. Welcome to the club. Been like that in England for over thirty years. I sympathise and empathise.
