Racist, political hostage attack towards white male

"F*** Donald Trump, n***a, f*** white people!"

"Kiss the floor, b**ch!"

Just a few of their quotes before they shoved his face into a toilet bowl among other atrocities.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/253943...th-hate-crime/

Hate crime, battery charges filed in 'sickening' Facebook Live attack on disabled man - World - CBC News


Videos of evidence on this attack have been reportedly taken down off youtube, while police brutality vids and ISIS beheadings among others are kept up or immune to moderation. CNN spokespersons also denounced it as a hate crime.

I personally believe this is just another nail in the coffin for the lies mainstream media purports or twists in the social media echochambers.

Re: Racist, political hostage attack towards white male

Horrible and the black lady saying it's not a hate crime pisses me off. They targeted him because he was white. Such double-standards.

Re: Racist, political hostage attack towards white male

They can't be racist, they're black. The white dude was oppressing them. It's also snowing. That is racist. Because snow is white. Stupid SJW.

The criminals could already be gone but then there would be riots in that city.

Re: Racist, political hostage attack towards white male

If anything, can't they be charged with a hate crime on the grounds that the man had autism?

That was my first thought when I heard this story - that it's part of a horrid trend of violence against people with disabilities. If anything, the other elements of the story bring to light how little attention that very common trend gets.

Though to address the OP's comments, this incident is relatively insulated insofar as it relates to race and politics and does not belie the structural issues of racism and a lack of accountability in the US justice system. It is not a smoking gun that brings down a 'mainstream media' lie. It does not counter statistical realities of race-related violence.

It has been widely reported, it certainly wasn't censored. To turn this into a racial-political conspiracy holds very little water.

Bet the likes of Black Lives Matter will still say that they are the victims. Such sickening behavior.

Letīs not make this thread into a race war. This incident has nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.

Re: Racist, political hostage attack towards white male



In all seriousness, the fact that these scum were charged with a hate crime shows that should hate crime legislation exist (I have qualms with it on the grounds of it being quasi-Orwellian), it seems that it is applied fairly. What they said in the video did seem to indicate to me that they had racist motivation at least partly.

Oh, believe me, it does. Usually people who commited such things are "accidentally" shot while fleeing.

But we'll see if they go through with the hate crime charge. If they do, I'm happy. But I'm afraid they won't.

Iīm sure these animals will be punished to the full extent of the law for what they have done.

You know how much jail time the two white football players who forced a coat hanger up the rectum of a disabled black team-mate while taunting him with racial slurs will be getting for what they did? ZERO jail time.

According to legal experts I've seen on the news, the answer is yes, if it can be proven that this was a factor in the attack.
