Reuters) - A driver beaten unconscious by a mob as he tried to help a child he struck accidentally with his truck in Detroit six weeks ago has been released from a hospital, a spokeswoman for the facility said on Saturday.

Steve Utash, 54, who was on a ventilator for about a week after the attack, left Detroit Medical Center's Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan on Thursday, said Cheryl Angelelli, a hospital representative.

Four men are facing attempted murder and assault charges in connection with the attack and a 16-year-old boy faces charges of assault and ethnic intimidation of Utash, who is white. All five defendants are black.

"ethnic intimidation"

Is that what a Black-on-White hate crime is called?

“Four men are facing attempted murder and assault charges”........

Facing the charges and actually being charge is another thing. If odumbo or Holder have anything to do with it they will walk.
