A mob of teens mercilessly beat an innocent man because he asked two girls to stop fighting on top of his car. Antoine Willie Lawson, one of the suspects, and a 15-year old girl have been charged in the beating of Richard Fletcher, 61.
Mr. Fletcher, a disabled veteran, suffered severed injuries which included broken eye sockets, a broken nose, broken ribs, bleeding on the brain, and many lacerations . He also needed a blood transfusion.
I guess we can expect the prosecutor Marilyn Mosby to express outrage against the assailants, assuring all of us that there will be justice.
