"Knockout" Thug Charged With Hate Crime
One of these "knockout" cowards get charged with a federal hate crime. We've seen dozens of videos of young black thugs hitting unsuspecting white victims, sometimes fatally.
So what makes this case unique?
In this case, the thug is white and the victim is black. That makes this a hate crime, while the others, apparently, are not to this Administration.
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. [...]
According to Justice officials, Mr. Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79-year-old man, laughing and saying "Knockout" as he runs away.
The 79-year-old man had his jaw broken in the Nov. 24 attack.
"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.
Didn't count on additional federal charges, did you, Conrad?
Barret got what he deserved. But so should every other coward who plays this despicable game.
