White marine attacked and stabbed by 20 blacks
A white Marine was severely beaten, stabbed, and robbed in California after the George Zimmerman verdict. The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office is reportedly considering the savage beating gang violence, but individuals claiming to be the parents of the injured 29 Palms Marine in online posts, feel their son’s attack was a racially motivated hate crime. Local radio station KCDZ 107.7′s crime report about the white Marine stated that the altercation took place around 2 am on Ocotillo Avenue.
The radio station also noted that the attack involved about 20 to 30 people. The online pleas by the unconfirmed parents to share the story of what happened to their son maintain that approximately 15 to 20 black youths attacked the Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps, another white Marine and a left their civilian black friend go unharmed. The African American friend reportedly attempted to help his friends and stop the attack, but he was vastly outnumbered.
The white Marine attacked after the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin murder trial was reportedly stabbed and hit repeatedly with a tire iron. He was transported to the Desert Hospital in Palm Springs for emergency treatment. An excerpt from statements made by the Marine’s alleged parents reads:
“After being beaten with a tire iron by a mob of 15 plus black men, [he was] stabbed in the chest and kicked unconscious and robbed. This fits the criteria for attempted murder along with a hate crime.”
The large group of men accused of attacking the white Marine from 29 Palms allegedly noticed the three friends sitting on a porch having and smoke and chatting. The attackers were reportedly carrying batons and at least one tire iron. One of the Marines was reportedly able to break free and run to get help for his incredibly outnumbered friends. MORE
20 white men attacked a black U.S. Marine, beat him with a tire iron and stabbed him in the chest! He was with a white fellow marine who was not approached at all. The victims father is very upset. The police did nothing, are doing nothing, and likely no one will be charged with anything over this attack.
In an update to a story we ran Tuesday about a weekend brawl in Twentynine Palms, two more people have been arrested. Sheriff's investigators said shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday morning, deputies were called to a fight in the 6000 block of Ocotillo Avenue, where they found a Marine who had been stabbed in the right chest and hit in the head with a tire iron. The unidentified victim was taken to Desert Hospital in Palm Springs with serious injuries and subsequently released. During the investigation, deputies determined that a party had been held at a home in the 73800 block of Sun Valley Drive. A fight had broken out between two different groups of men at the party, resulting in one group of men being chased down Ocotillo Avenue by the second group, armed with a tire iron and a baseball bat. The second group of men confronted the victim and several other men on Ocotillo Avenue, and assaulted him. After initial investigation, Melvin Peters, 23, was arrested for warrants and booked into the Morongo Basin Jail. Later that day, deputies served a search warrant on homes in the 73800 block of Sun Valley Drive where the party and fight occurred, and on a home in the 5300 block of Daisy Avenue. They recovered a sawed-off shotgun and handgun; evidence led to the arrest of Davon Felton, 20, on outstanding warrants and violation of a restraining order, and Christine Brown, 18, for resisting arrest. The Sheriff's Department stresses that neither race nor any other outside issue has been identified as a factor in the assault. Anyone with information about the assault should call Detective Marcel Silva at 760-366-4175.
