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.
