Public demands hate crime charges for near fatal mob attack on white truck driver in Detroit


After a ten year old black child ran in front of a truck and was lightly injured, a black mob pulled the white truck driver out of his vehicle. He was then beaten within an inch of his life. He was hospitalized in critical condition. The thugs also stole his possessions.

Racial hatred, not anger over the boy’s injury, appears to be the primary motive.

Public anger is exploding in Michigan, forcing the media to at least consider that it was a “hate crime.” Normally the media does everything it can to censor and hide black on white hate crimes. This one is finally getting traction.

There are two reasons this black on white mob attack is actually getting traction. First the media probably thinks that the ten year old provide a non-racial motive to balance the story. Also, the victim has two daughters who are giving interviews to the media. The media favors crime victims who have attractive female relatives and/or friends that perform well on camera.

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’ve talked to one Detroit police officer and I think that, personally in my own heart, I think it was all a setup from the gate,” he said, ”meaning that my dad’s been driving up and down Morang for 15, 16 years working for the same company and they know he has a job, they know he has money and they robbed him. You know, he had a bag with all his stuff in it. He showed me that he had all this money in his wallet that morning, telling me he just took the money out of the bank so he could pay his dentist.

“As far as a hate crime, it might be,” he said. “You know, it’s like you go in Detroit and you’re white, you don’t belong. Seriously. I’ve been pulled over by police before and they’re like ‘Get back across 8 Mile,’ like I’m not supposed to be over there, like I’m not allowed to go in Detroit.”

Police declined to say if investigators thought the attack was racially charged.

The boy, David Harris, is expected to recover from his injuries, according to his uncle, Desmond Key. No arrests have been made in the beating, but the boy’s father was taken into custody, on an unrelated warrant.

“At this point, based on [the pickup driver’s] condition, there’s some pretty serious charges that we’re looking at,” Sgt. Woody said.
