DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit teenager was charged Thursday with assault and a hate crime in the brutal mob beating of a suburban motorist who stopped to help a boy he accidentally struck with his pickup truck.

The 16-year-old boy is the only one of five people charged in the April 2 attack on Steve Utash to face an ethnic intimidation count. Utash, 54, is white. The teen and four adults charged in his beating are black.

Did hell just get a few degrees cooler? The charges will get reduced just like for the group of animals that damn near beat to death those two girls in Long Beach, Ca. on Halloween a few years ago.

This will be “corrected” as soon as Holder and the “just us” dept. get wind of this...

It’s not April fool’s day is it? Not only is the monster being charged but they’re not protecting a member of a major dem victim-hood group. Weird.

AND this is being covered in a liberal newspaper. I think this ‘story’ is a prank.

They will never serve a day in jail, beyond what they have served after arrest.

“...a suburban motorist who stopped to help a boy he accidentally struck with his pickup truck....”
********************************************************************

Look at the video stopped at the milliseconds leading up to the impact-—the motorist DID NOT “STRIKE” the boy, THE BOY intentionally darted INTO THE SIDE OF THE PASSING TRUCK—he did not run into the front of the truck. There was nothing the driver could do to prevent the boy from hitting the side of his truck.

This was clearly nothing more than a ghetto YUTE being coached on how to try to win the lawsuit settlement lottery. And then the “good folk” who were with and near the boy beat the driver into a brain damaged condition (at best, and possibly beaten into an ultimate death). This is so despicable and EVIL on so many levels.

Why the hell aren’t the corrupt Detroit cops trying to find out who was coaching the little low-IQ kid to run into the truck?

I wonder if this is a first? Can’t remember another time this has happened but there should have been many more.

Yep —

But the protective media from day one has refused to show the full video because it is too horrible for the public to see according to them.

Yeh it is horrible — a ghetto yute being trained to commit insurance fraud — and being poorly trained at that.

Prosecutor Kim Worthy appears to be a pretty straight shooter. She's still hunting Kilpatrick cronies and taking them down.

It’ll be plea-bargained away, and the DBMs will bury it all down the rabbit hole. DoINJ will see to it.

Well she has two different groups of cronies to go after — the ones who did the beating and the ones encouraging him to step into the side of the car.

And she better be leaning on the kid real hard.

There’s a poor quality PARTIAL video toward the bottom of the below link. There was what appeared to be a better quality (and definitely more complete) video included in online news articles when the story first came out. You can search for one of those earlier articles with the longer videos.

The jails they be’d full of Sons of Obama. Why? You didn’t know that Obama secretly signed an Executive Action Order declaring 2014 as “Beat a Whitey a Week” Year.

Look, Holder has said that he will exercise “discretion” as to what laws to enforce so why not give the Brothers a whole year to work out their aggression problems, which they blame on Bush, by the way.

If Holder and Obama won’t obey the law, why should they?

And they’ve got a point.

Thanks carriage_hill. This is still a link to just a video which is just a “part” of the original video. This partial begins only about 4 or 5 seconds before the instant the Yute darts into the side of the truck.

The original video showed more of what was happening prior to that time and it appeared that there was some “practice” going on. Maybe that part of the video has now been (hopefully only temporarily) deep six’d. I’m sure the complete video from the gas station’s recorder is in possession of the “responsible” Detroit authorities.

There are a lot of T vids showing pretty much the same thing, but the before and after vids are gone.

Your assessment is technically correct! Local news ALWAYS describes the incident as though the driver hit the boy with his pickup truck...a TRUCK!

I guess it’s nice to see a Black being charged with a “hate” crime, but it still begs the point that “hate” crimes are a bad deal and should be taken off the books.

Why just the 16 year old?

Probably because he is a minor and will get out of the pokey despite the charges against him when he turns 21.

Nobody will know about it because he is is a minor.

They knew this was a hate crime, so they chose the easy way.

I know, I am being cynical.

Had Trayvon lived, would he have had his felony assault and attempted murder charges upped by adding the hate crime charge?

I'm not sure what your point is.

My point is that what one is thinking during, or as a reason to commit a crime should be irrelevant. A crime is a crime is a crime.

Hate crimes are just an extension of the pervasive PC society that allows others to outlaw thoughts.
