Race-Based Beating

Paging Al Sharpton.

Apr. 4, 2014

Update: “Two Detroit teenagers were arrested Saturday in an attack on a suburban man who was brutally beaten by a mob after accidentally striking a boy with his pickup truck,” Fox News reports.

Steven Utash, a 54-year-old Detroit tree trimmer, accidentally hit a boy with his truck. When he got out to check on the child, who had a broken leg, a dozen people immediately attacked Utash and beat him unconscious while robbing him of his wallet and phone. He’s now in a medically induced coma, and his son says, “I am surprised that he is alive.” Utash is white and, according to witnesses, his attackers were black. Police haven’t yet made any arrests, however. We’re waiting on Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to weigh in and for Barack Obama to hold a press conference to proclaim that, if he had a son, he would look like the assailants.
