A 27-year-old Katy man has been indicted for a federal hate crime, accused of videotaping himself punching a 79-year-old black man as part of a "knockout game."
The indictment handed down Thursday by a federal grand jury formalizes the charges against Conrad Barrett, who was arrested in December.

black-on-white = coincidence
Holder wont let these knockout thugs get away with it, this is making an example.
‘Playing knockout while being white’ will NOT be tolerated!
black-on-black = nonexistent. And for goodness sake, don't use the word "thug".
black-on-white = coincidence
Not even that...totally denied by the msm.
Anyone who would punch a 79 year old just for the heck of it, deserves to be shot down like a dirty dog.
That also includes any Black who does it to a White person. We have a totally corrupt AG and probably the entire justice dept. They simply prosecute for no other reason than the race of the perpetrator.
Even under the most virulent system of Jim Crow would Whites have been allowed to just injure or kill a Black who was not engaged in some controversial behavior.
Eric Holder is a racist and a disgrace.
I absolutely disagree with “hate crime” laws, because #1 they’re applied unequally, #2 motivation is difficult to determine, and #3 an assault is an assault no matter what motivated it. Motivation could be considered in the sentencing phase. Regardless, if the 79-year-old man was attacked in a Knockout game, the person who did it deserves to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
yarddog: “Anyone who would punch a 79 year old just for the heck of it, deserves to be shot down like a dirty dog.”
And WHY the hell is HE being targeted for a HATE crime when no BLACKS have been and the OVERWHELMING number of Knock-Out Attacks (but certainly not all) have been by black perps against non-black victims???
I’ll tell you why - the Chicago Based “Nation of Islam” is running the Obama Administration and Holder works for them.
The prosecution claims that Mr. Barrett not only videotaped the alleged attack, but also allegedly said on the tape that he was going to attack a black man.
Darn shame. Katy was a great place to live.
“became to” = became too
Meanwhile the knockout game continues across this nation with no federal investigation.
If I were him, I would sue the Federal government for violate his civil rights and racism, they have singled him out for a hate crime while all others committing the same crime are not charged equally because of their color/race.
Not a bad idea.
He and others who have been charged with crimes should sue local, state and federal government on the basis that they can point to others who have committed the same crime and were not prosecuted.
We need to send in the cop, who canceled the movie-texting patron, to clean this up pronto.
With this 29 year old a—hole... we need to cull our own ...
As a Houston resident, I can tell you the areas of Katy north of I-10 (like the area you lived in) have changed a lot since then, the schools especially. Crime isn’t as bad as in a lot of parts of Houston proper but worse than it used to be. A number of the houses and apartment complexes have started getting a lot of Section 8, both illegals and Katrina evacuees. The areas south of I-10 have changed some but are still much nicer than the northern part.
There are quite a few very nice small town out west. I want to retire and move to Sealy. Lovely place.
How hard will it be to convict a mentally ill person based on his additional motivation?
