Police in Seneca, South Carolina have arrested six men for beating another man at an Applebee’s on March 17. According to the police, the alleged perpetrators may have attacked the victim based on racial motivations. The FBI has been notified to determine whether this was a hate crime.
As Fox Carolina reports, “The suspects are Teryn Robinson, 18, Tray Holland, 19, Justin Alexander, 20, Derick Williams, 22, Kino Jones, 25, and Montrez Jones, 22.”
Thus far, media attention has been minimal. Were the situation reversed in terms of race, there is little doubt that the media attention would be significantly more intense.
