Gang of Black Teenagers Mercilessly Beat White Tourist at D.C. Hilton Hotel

Posted on | July 26, 2019 | 2 Comments

Is this a “hate crime”?

Police are hunting for 14 teenagers caught on video brutally beating a tourist outside a renowned hotel in Washington, DC.
Disturbing surveillance footage recorded at the entrance to the Washington Hilton Hotel at around 1am on July 14 shows the group of girls and boys believed to be around 13-14 years old attacking the man as he lies defenseless on the ground.
The video was released by the Metropolitan Police Department on Wednesday.
Authorities have asked for the public’s help in identifying the assailants.
The video shows the gang of teens exchanging a few words with the man before one of the boys punches him, knocking him backwards.
The rest of the group joins in and they proceed to kick and punch the man repeatedly.


To me, what’s most shocking about the video is that the Hilton is a posh hotel in the affluent Northwest section of D.C., off Connecticut Avenue a few blocks from Dupont Circle. Why was this gang of teenagers loitering around the entrance to the hotel in the first place? And what were those “few words” exchanged between the tourist and his assailants that preceded the beating? But we are supposed to shrug our shoulders and not spend too much time thinking about this frightening scene in terms of what it might symbolize about our society.
