Despite violently assaulting a man because he was a “white boy Trump supporter,” no hate crime charges are being filed against four thugs who were filmed beating and carjacking an innocent man in Chicago earlier this month.
From the Chicago Tribune:
Four people have been charged after a man was punched and kicked as a crowd yelled, “Don’t vote Trump,” a day after the presidential election, police said.
Julian Christian, 26, of the 2500 block of 14th Avenue in Broadview, Dejuan Collins, 20, of the 9500 block of South Avalon Avenue in Chicago, Rajane Lewis, 21, of the 7800 block of South Euclid Avenue in Chicago, and a 17-year-old girl who is charged as a juvenile, were each charged with one felony count of vehicular hijacking, police said.
A video of the incident went viral and the victim, 49-year-old David Wilcox, acknowledged he supports Donald Trump but said that’s not what started the beating on the West Side.
Julian Christian, 26, from left, Dejuan Collins, 20, and Rajane Lewis, 21, and an unidentified 17-year-old where charged with vehicular hijacking in a Nov. 9, 2016, incident caught on video where a man was beaten and later dragged as he held on to the window of his car on Chicago’s West Side.
Where are the hate crime charges? Does anyone believe such charges would not be filed if the races were reversed?
Hopefully, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions gets in he can remedy this situation.
