Boston Trump Bros Who Attacked Homeless Man Sentenced To Prison

These are the kinds of stories we will be reading about on a daily basis as the general election gathers steam.

Boston brothers who beat and urinated on a homeless Mexican man, then told police "Donald Trump was right: All these illegals need to be deported," were sentenced to prison on Monday.

Scott Leader, 38, and Steve Leader, 30, had previously pleaded guilty to indictments charging them with causing bodily injury while committing a civil rights violation, as well as assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, among other charges.

The Leaders were arrested on August 19 on suspicion of beating Rodriguez, then 58, as he slept in a subway station. The men told police they targeted their victim because they believed he was an undocumented immigrant.

The victim, Guillermo Rodriguez, said in a statement that he was in fact a permanent resident.
