Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,” accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.
Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges.
Holder’s Injustice Department is determined to ignore the racist motives behind an epidemic of young black thugs assaulting and knocking out (and robbing, often) white people.
So they searched, and searched, and searched until they found a white guy who assaulted some black guy while selfing a video of the act.
“The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?” Mr. Barrett says in the video, according to the authorities.
It seems pretty clear to me that this moron didn’t slug the old black guy because he hated blacks, but because he wanted to get his stupid mug on national TV. But this will be waved in the face of all those wondering why the black thugs never get charged with hate crimes – “See, you white racists are doing it too!”
“Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law.”
Yeah, right. Of course, there is evidence, and then there is evidence.
