The victim, who was treated for a broken nose, serious bruises and other injuries, told police he awoke to find the two men urinating before they ripped off his sleeping bag and blankets and beat him.
While Scott – who has been previously imprisoned for a hate crime – told police that the homeless man attacked his 30-year-old brother with a pole, witnesses said the homeless man grabbed the pole in defense!
Two brothers have been accused of viciously attacking a homeless Hispanic man in Boston early Wednesday. “And some, I assume, are good people”. “They love this country, they want this country to be great again”. Steve Leader allegedly exposed his genitals to the troopers several times and urinated on the door and floor of the cell block. The Globe said court records show Scott Leader served a year in prison for a 2001 hate crime.
The man was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he is listed in fair condition.
Officials said they would follow the investigation into the man’s attack “very closely” to ensure that those responsible are held accountable.
Donald Trump’s immigration policy includes plans to build a giant wall to divide Mexico and the United States, which is all anyone needs to say about Donald Trump.
The victim was Hispanic, and the Leader brothers’ attack was reportedly motivated by Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric.
This isn’t the first time Trump’s so-called base has harassed or acted out against someone they view as an “enemy”-after the whole debate kerfuffle with Megyn Kelly, she received death threats from Trump’s fans, which led the cable network to provide her with additional security”.
In his campaign launch speech, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump made incendiary comments suggesting that Mexican immigrants are rapists, drug dealers, and killers – remarks that immigrant advocacy groups widely condemned.
During a news conference late Wednesday, the presidential nominee was asked about the incident and instead of passionately condemning the action, he called his alleged supporters “passionate”. Not the term I would use, but I’m also not a horrible person.
Mayor Martin J. Walsh said the brothers “should be ashamed of themselves”.
