Glenn played a shocking video on radio today of a man being brutally attacked while the assailants shout anti-gay slurs. How is the mainstream media ignoring this story?
Watch the video below (WARNING: Graphic violence and language):
The Blaze reports:
Alleged members of an Atlanta street gang were filmed savagely beating a man who they refer to as a “fa**ot.” The 30-second clip, posted yesterday to the Worldstar Hip Hop website, was reportedly taken outside a grocery store in the “Pittsburgh” neighborhood of Atlanta.
According the Smoking Gun (SG), Pittsburgh is a popular congregation point for the Jack City Gang (PBJC).
After Atlanta police were made aware of the incident and provided with a link to the disturbing video, police spokesperson told Smoking Gun that the clip had been forwarded to the department’s gang division as well as the unit that investigates LGBT-related hate crimes within the community.
"There is hatred growing on our streets," Glenn warned.
Glenn said that he understood that the victim went to the hospital but is OK now, but he wondered where the media and the arrests were? After all, people are quick to attack idiots like Roland Martin for stupid comments he makes but this has been widely ignored.
Glenn said one reason GLAAD may be going after Martin but not highlighting cases like this is that the Martin incident allows them to scare the media.
"These organizations don't stand for anything," Glenn said. "They stand for power. It's more important to go after Roland Martin than this one, because you can scare the media."
