So I just watched a report on my local news about a teenager who hit an 80 year old man as part of the knockout game. The suspect who is a punk a$$ white kid knocked out the elderly gentleman who is black, now the white kid is being brought up on hate crime charges. Now I could care less what ethnicity either one of the individual's involved are I think the whole knockout game fiasco is complete chicken $hit. I'm sitting here just stewing about thereve been black thugs that knocked out a white person and were only brought up on assault charges, a white kid knocks out a black person and it's a hate crime.... They did report the punk had made racial statements in the past so I can see the justification for adding on the hate crime charges. However I've seen other reports in the past where the attacker was black and as they attacked a white victim they were calling them derogatory names but yet that's not considered a hate crime. How's this ok?
