Two men beat and urinate on homeless Hispanic man. "Trump was right" one of them tells police. Update!

Courtesy of the Boston Herald:  

Two brothers urinated on and beat a Hispanic homeless man who was sleeping near a train station and one of them said afterward that Donald Trump was right about deporting "all these illegals," police said. 

The brothers, Scott Leader and Steve Leader, were held without bail Wednesday on charges including assault, indecent exposure and threatening to commit a crime. They pleaded not guilty. 

A state police report filed in court says Scott Leader told troopers after his arrest, "Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported," The Boston Globe reported. Court records show Scott Leader served a year in prison for a hate crime against a Moroccan coffee shop worker after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, the Globe said. 

Witnesses flagged down a state trooper at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday after they saw two men use a metal pole to beat a man near an MBTA station and then walk away laughing, prosecutors said. 

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.

Look, the "Trump effect" is already starting to spread.

In a few more months I imagine hate crimes against brown people will go up significantly.

I can't even begin to imagine how bad it would be if he were to actually get elected.

Update:  Here was Trump's response to this attack:

Told of the attack, which also left the man soaked in urine, Mr. Trump said at a news conference late Wednesday that it was the first he had heard of it. 

“It would be a shame,” Mr. Trump said, before adding: “I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”

Yeah these guys are just are just passionate about making the country great again.

And with Mr. Trump leading them they will. 

Even if they have to beat and piss on every Hispanic in the country.

      If Trump loves this country so much and wants to make it great again, how come Trump Enterprises imports workers from other countries on H1B visas?

      Aren't Americans great enough for Trump Enterprises? Maybe if Trump Enterprises hired Americans that guy would not be homeless.

      Also too Mr. Trump how come Melanie waited until July 2006 to get her citizenship? Is Baron an anchor baby, he was born in March 2006. Did Melanie have a valid green card or visa at the when he was born? How do we know she wasn't illegal?

    I'm surprised at Gryphen. Mr. Trump (and I am not a supporter of his, btw) is not responsible for anyone else's actions. He did not tell people to go out and commit violent acts. Anyone could commit a crime in the name of someone else. If some irate Hillary supporter or Obama enthusiast did the same thing you wouldn't want Hillary or Obama blamed. This should be pretty self-evident.

    Let me also point out that there have been a few incidents recently where lesbians have claimed to have been attacked or had their property damaged. All these claims proved to be false. But it is in no way a reflection on the LGBT community. For people on the right to try to "score a point" over these fake incidents would be unethical.

    3. No one is saying Trump is responsible for the violent thug's actions----but he is responsible for basically dismissing the violence and saying his supporters are just passionate and want America to be great again.

      So does that mean the passion of beating a homeless man will help make America great in some way? Trump is either an idiot or he really doesn't give a crap what happens to this country or interestingly enough--trying to destroy the GOP because after he finishes with this crazy racist stuff
      will guarantee that republicans get zero percentage of the Latino vote and lose the WH forever. Hmmm.

  8. As I commented on one of your previous blog entries:

    "Thanks for posting this. I love intelligence. However, we have a situation today in which someone is telling us they want to help "protesters", particularly in Ferguson. What are those helpful meatballs called again? Yes, helping their fellow man understand that if they held a gun in their hands, they would be less bothered by those people with badges and stuff. Me thinks someone is picturing a bloodbath that might be on their own bucket list. Creepy."

    The "Oath Keepers" are an example of sick people finding ways to exploit the politics of today in order to justify aggression towards the brown skinned community. I believe news of the "Oath Keepers" attempted manipulation of the passion in Ferguson belongs here in this discussion. They have encouraged protesters to carry guns in order to alter the dynamics of the Police/Black American relationship. They say they would stop harassment by doing so, carrying weapons. Who are they kidding? The aggression that is already accessible to those 'servants of safety' would only be more justified by the guns. Like I indicated, who here really hopes to see the bloodbath that potentially waits?

      Great comment Connie. El Paso, TX, one of the largest if not the largest border town with a very high Latino population has less violence than any other city of its size. If you were born or have lived in CO you grew up and went to school with Latinos, many are some of your closest friends. The best restaurants in my area are the Mexican restaurants they are owned and frequently family run by folks who work their tails off. If you live here chances are you have at least one family member who is married to a Latino.
      The gop has been stirring up this racial thing since that ignorant twat palin came on the scene. They want a race war because they know most minorities vote for the compassionate party. They also know the Latinos will not be the minority for much longer and it drives them crazy.

    Gee, Trump's policies and the "passion" they invoke sound familiar...as if sometime in history something similar happened. You know, when a government declared that all those "others" were destroying the country. He's not the only member of the GOP to espouse this so requiring law enforcement to do his bidding will be easy. Now he may think that he can deport everyone with a Hispanic name but, in the beginning that might prove difficult. Perhaps before he has authorities round up all these "illegals", he'll have to require everyone carry papers with them at all times. Then for ease of the roundup, a system might be employed to easily identify who is who, say like have some insignia sewn onto their clothing...say a star...and then he'll have to have detention facilities constructed, you know camps, to hold these people and then........

    What is frightening is that a large portion of the population of the US is now so far right, they are getting dangerously close to the policies of that form of government. And while they love to pin the label on the President it is they who are treading close to that extreme. It is too bad that civics is no longer taught in most schools to understand that far right, ultra conservative ideology is termed fascism (while far left is communism). Read a bit of history and then listen to the insanity from today's GOP leaders.

  28. I am no fan of Trump, nor a defender of his behavior, but there are two issues here: a vile act and Trump's poorly articulated response.

    Trump speaks off the cuff and over explains, often confusing the actual point he wishes to make. I don't believe for one minute he excuses this criminal act.

    But it is the act of violence itself that interests me most. Are we to assume the perpetrators are examples of American exceptionalism? People such as these make me laugh. They are like the clowns who drive around with the big Confederate

Are you saying he "over-explained" why the two brothers beat up their victim? Why would he feel the need to do that? Trump says what he thinks. He obviously thinks explaining away the brothers' behavior is more important than condemning that it.

      And how is "speaking off the cuff" any different from "speaking out of his ass?" I'm tired of these kinds of excuses for Trump's nasty attitude and beliefs.

      Maybe I did give Trump the benefit of the doubt; I don't care.

      What I like about Trump's candidacy and why I want him to stay in the race is because he exposes how nasty and shitty conservative hate mongers really are.

      I never became aware of how nasty conservatives are until the advent of Rush Limbaugh. Since then outrage upon outrage has been spewed from their mouths, without any sort of check or brake. Assailing Obama's birthright was nasty, but yelling out that he's a liar at a state of the union address was beyond the pale, and it's only gotten worse.

      Trump says what others feel, but won't say. I want people to be outraged, offended, shocked, and asking aloud how things got to this point? I laugh whenever I think about the republican autopsy. It sounded good and sincere, but it was just another shell game. So I say, carry on Trump, keep at it until the rest of the field is exposed and stripped bare.

      I have far more respect for an outspoken oaf who's prejudices are clear than I do for a dissembler. At least the former is not afraid to let you know where

    So Donald Trump thinks that what made America "great" was beating up innocent people and leaving them for dead. It's a good thing that most of us don't agree. My guess is that Trump thinks that what was done to indigenous people here was just fine. After all, the newcomers were wealthier and had superior weapons. I don't think that Trump would want the Boston thugs who committed this crime punished for their crime. Hey, Trump believes in being some kind of tough. Just not in being decent or law abiding.

      Trump's latest tactic that physical power and force of an enormous military and victory (kill off obliterate the enemy) is American Exceptionalism is pandering to a group that believes violence scores a win.

      I wonder how many "passionate" supporters are enlisting or intending to go into battle to remove and destroy the enemy? Note his first two passionate vigilantes attacked a defenseless man not only attempting to beat him to death but urinate on him.

      Trump did not denounce the act. He derived a power surge that his words recruited those two manipulating them to serve his goal.
