DETROIT (WWJ) - As a 54-year-old Roseville man clings to life in the hospital following a brutal mob beating on Detroits east side, many are starting to wonder if the whole thing was racially motivated. As first reported by WWJ Newsradio 950, an 11-year-old boy suffered a broken leg on Wednesday when he was hit by a pickup truck after walking into the street near Morang and Balfour. The driver, Steven Utash, immediately got out of his truck after hitting the boy and was viciously attacked by 10 to 12 men. The beating was so brutal, Utash was rendered unconscious.
Our preliminary investigation shows the child stepped in front of his vehicle, Woody said. He did exactly the right thing. He stopped his vehicle, he got out and he tried to render aid to a small child. He did exactly what he was supposed to do
It was a small child and it was an accident; is what it was. State Rep. Alberta Tinsley Talabi (D-Detroit), told WWJ Legal Analyst Charlie Langton the incident appears to have racial overtones, adding, its wrong. Joseph Utash said although it was tough to stomach, he watched video of the incident. As my dads truck was coming down the street, the kid stepped right in front of my dads truck. My dad had absolutely not one chance in the world to try to swerve out-of-the-way or stop, he said. He got out of the car to check on the kid and before he even got up to the kid, he got assaulted by 11, 12 people. They jumped all over him and beat him up.

No. This would have turned out exactly the same way if the driver were black.
If Zimmerman had just accepted his beat down, St. Trayvon may still be alive today (barring further risky violent episodes).
Did See BS only happen to know the race of the truck driver...and not the mob or the boy? Since they entered race into their headline?
I am sure our dear leader will address the nation alongside Al and Jesse for this travesty of racial intolerance.
“This would have turned out exactly the same way if the driver were black.”
Sorry, don’t buy it.
The driver was beaten down because he was White; a Black would have encountered hostility, perhaps, but not a beat-down, IMO.
“White Man Beaten By Mob In Detroit After Hitting Boy With Truck: Was It A Hate Crime?”
First word of question negates it being so.
CBS? No, not exactly, it’s a CBS affiliate station.
When I first saw the attribution, I nearly went into cardiac arrest. CBS actually reporting a racial-angle story?
The KKK has flooded the comments section there.
Ok, without having watched the video, I think the child was coached to step out in front of him based on who he “was” or “represented” to in order to set up the whole incident.
You know better than that.
“””Joseph Utash said he believes his father was intentionally targeted or even worse, that skin color might have played a role. Based on witness accounts, the attackers were African American.””””
I wonder what part of Africa they were born in and when did they migrate to the US?
Or are they 5th generation welfare parasites... beating and nearly killing the person that pays taxes and supports them?
OBAMA!!! WHERE YOU AT!?!!
“The driver was beaten down because he was White; a Black would have encountered hostility, perhaps, but not a beat-down, IMO.”
You’re opinion happens to be right.
A group of men who’d beat someone else to death but couldn’t be bothered to keep him out of the road.
Probably doesn’t remember Reginald Denny too well.
The elephant in the room which the willingly blind Dems/Libs refuse to see...the fact that the Blacks are not only the most violent group in America, but also by an order of magnitude, the most racist.
Been in Hispanic cities...get along fine.
Been in Oriental cities...get along fine.
Been in Black cities/area...got out as soon as could.
Sensed much hostility due to the color of my skin.
Not all Blacks...but far too many are seriously racist.
Encouraged since 2008 by the Racist in Chief.
Just ask Holder. He’ll tell you it’s impossible for a black man to be racist
