Barrett approached and beat an elderly black man on the street in what was obviously a racially motivated attack:
A federal prosecutor told the court that Barrett made a video of the November 24 attack.
In the video, according to a federal affidavit filed in the case, Barrett allegedly said: "The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?"
He then allegedly "hit the man with such force that the man immediately fell to the ground. Barrett then laughed and said 'knockout,' as he ran to his vehicle and fled."
The 79-year-old victim lost three teeth and was hospitalized for four days with surgery to repair two jaw fractures.
In other videos on his phone that police confiscated, Barrett used the N-word and said that African-Americans "haven't fully experienced the blessing of evolution," according to the criminal complaint.
According to the article, Barrett's lawyers claim that he suffers from bipolar disorder and was not responsible for his actions that day. I have no idea whether that's true. If he's mentally incompetent that's an issue to raise in the trial, not a reason to excuse him from being tried.
And Bludgeon's reaction is to call Eric Holder "human garbage" for allowing one of his US attorneys to "go out of his way to find white people to convict".
I don't think Bludgeon is "human garbage" but I do think he's got some truly repulsive views.
