On Sunday, a 34-year-old Wisconsin man received a beating by several black teens. According to Christopher Simpson, the victim, and another witness present at the scene, Simpson was attacked at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, punched in the back of the head, and then punched and kicked when he fell to the ground. White said that one of the black teens shouted at him, “This is for Trayvon Martin.” Another witness confirmed White’s story. The beating only stopped when a black passerby intervened.
Simpson’s hand is broken, and he sustained in juries to the chest, head, and arms. “At first it was one guy on me pummeling me. And then it’s two and then it’s three, and then a whole bunch of them just came out of nowhere and I was just really in bad shape,” said Simpson to local media. “This man was just walking through the park and they just all jumped on him and they were just beating him and, like, ‘This is for Trayvon Martin,’” said witness Tiffany Biles. Simpson said that a young black couple helped him: “A guy came with his girlfriend and said, ‘What the hell are you guys doing? Leave this guy alone!’ He said, ‘Don’t worry’ and he held my wrist and he said, ‘As long as I’m here, you’ll be OK.’”
