22 year old black College student beaten to death by crowd during vacation in Greek island

22 year old American, Bakari Henderson, who just graduated from University of Arizona was beaten to death early Friday morning July 7th while vacationing on the Greek island of Zakynthos.

According to NYDaily News, which quoted local media, Bakari got into a fight with a security guy at a bar called Bar Code. The fight with one security fight quickly turned violent as the young American was chased outside of the bar and beaten mercilessly by up to 10 men.

He was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Doctors said he suffered severe head injuries.

Police are currently investigating if race played a part in the attack.

The US State Department released a statement saying,
“Greek police in Zakynthos notified the U.S. Embassy of the death of a U.S. citizen in the early morning hours of Friday, July 7. We are in communication with authorities and providing consular assistance to the deceased citizen’s family. We offer our sincerest condolences to family and friends, and out of respect for the family during this difficult time, we have no further comment.”
Greek authorities arrested two individuals in connection to the murder, including a 32-year-old British security guard and 34-year-old Greek barman.

    If you are ever black of any descent .. Please I advise you .. Avoid most europe for now .. Their people dey vex and you might never enjoy your vacation .. Trying Spain -- Very diversified people .. Will be your best ..

    Since Trump became president -- World govt. has soften human rights and left their citizens to carry laws into their own hands .. Black people are oppressed in Europe and its has psychologically destroy the lives of our fellow black people also -- Turned them into a monster ... So, if you a tourist there then don't be surprised seeing a black man living there and acting weird .. The country don craze am but him no know yet but only u do .. peace.

    Dunno why I feel no sympathy for him. Cos obviously he has no care in the world for his parents and self. Otherwise he'll realize his life is so precious, he'd never engage in a fight with a security but live to fight another day on a better status.
