The three blacks told investigators they had been looking for a car to steal when they entered the Howard Beach neighborhood. They told police a white man in an SUV passed them in the street, exchanged stares with them and then returned with two friends and a baseball bat before chasing them on foot.

Or has it become acceptable to punish someone for a crime they haven't yet committed?

What would happen if a white person were to stroll down the back streets of Compton?
They would receive a nice beating and would that beating ever make it to the media?
Originally posted by Uncle JoeThough i agree with Rancid, what on earth were they doing in a white neighbourhood? Didnt they know that Jim Crow lives here?

The impression given is that three black guys were beaten. Even if they had been trying to steal a car why not call the police? or perform a citizens arrest and sit on them until the police turn up?
