It is a hate crime and should be prosecuted as such.
This assault is horrendous and should never have happened. Therefore, politics should NOT be brought into this at all. Plus things like this should never be allowed on Facebook or any social media site. It just inspires others to do the same.
I hadn't heard that he was a "Trump supporter", but either way, yes, this was a hate crime and it's appalling that the police superintendent tried to make excuses. Excuses that would not have been made had the attackers been white. Let's get real. Hate crimes are hate crimes and they can be perpetrated against anyone by anyone.
The GOOD news is that the perpetrators of this horrific crime are in custody, and the victim has been released from the hospital in stable condition. Due to the idiocy of their sick brutality being posted on FB, chances are pretty good that they WILL be charged with a "hate crime".
He really should have been in the hospital a little while longer, if not just for observation.
I would have thought so, but I don't know the full extent of his injuries, except that he had some cuts and burns. I'm not sure medical hospitals keep patients long for mental trauma. Maybe he wanted to go home....
I just saw this on the morning news. It's interesting how you described the assailants. I saw multiple degenerates beating and taunting another person.
Oh no people who I agree with did bad things I better sell out my views because trump supporters are incapable of doing wrong
She was aggressive. Sound like self-defense. A punch in the face is much different than this story. Kidnap, beating, streamed live on the Internet.
so if someone yells at you you assault them immediately? The trump way of doing things. Ugh cavemen me smash!
There have been many more attacks on Trump supporters.
depends on what you read. Are we really having a contest over this? this election was a pile of dogshit and everyone's become an asshole the end.
Also I may point out this was on Fox News aka CROX NEWS
Four charged with hate crime, kidnapping in Facebook Live torture of white man
Does it really matter what color he was? It was done out of hate.
Ask the media the same thing about Trayvon.
