Two brothers, leaving the Red Sox game, encounter ahomeless Latino man asleep near the subway.They urinated in his face and then beat him, at least once with a metal pole. They laughed as they walked away. Witnesses called the police and when the men were arrested they had a good explanation

Scott Leader, 38, told investigators that he thought it was acceptable to assault homeless people who were Hispanic.“Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported,” Scott Leader said, according to the police report.

I suspect that wasn’t the right thing to say because they were charged with “assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery to intimidate with bodily injury, open and gross lewdness, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and threatening to commit a crime.” One of the brother faced additional charges for destruction of property after police said that he punched and kicked a cell door.

When asked about this incident, Donald Trump also had an explanation.

Trump called the assault a “shame.”“I will say that people who are following me are very passionate,” he remarked. “They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”

Trump just stopped being amusing.
