Cincinnati police described the brutal beating of a white man by a Black mob during a race riot Saturday night near Fountain Square as an “anti-white” hate crime in an incident report according to media reports.
The results of the bloody beating were captured on video.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Cincinnati Police Captain Mike Neville on Monday backed away from the’ anti-white’ classification of the attack.
“The assault on a man near Fountain Square on Saturday night was incorrectly described as an “anti-white” crime in the official police incident report, Cincinnati Police Capt. Mike Neville said Monday.
“Christopher McKnight, 27, was jumped on and beaten by a group of people that moved over from the “unruly” crowd that gathered on Fountain Square around 11:30 p.m. An incident report released Monday said the assault was an “anti-white” hate/bias crime.”
“Neville said the investigation is ongoing and does not believe the assault was a hate crime at a Monday news conference.
Why is CPD failing to protect vulnerable ethnic groups in the city? It's really unacceptable that authorities can back away and pretend that poor man wasn't attacked because of the color of his skin, probably to appease powerful racial supremacist special interest groups. But most importantly whey is mainstream media failing to report on this incident?
