UPDATE: Crowd stole motorist's money, credit cards after beating him unconscious

 

A man who accidentally hit an 10-year-old boy with his pickup on Wednesday on Detroit’s east side remains hospitalized in critical condition after he was beaten by a large group of men, police said.

 

The 54-year-old Roseville man got out to check on the boy after the accident at about 4:10 p.m. near a gas station at Morang and Balfour streets. Then a large group of men assaulted the man, according to Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody.

 

“My understanding is that it was a low-speed accident. It was exactly that — just an accident,” Woody said, adding that the boy stepped off a curb in front of the truck. “The man did try to stop and render aid. He did everything he could exactly right.”

Stories like this really instill my faith in humanity.  Hope they catch everyone who beat this guy and stick it to them.

Wtf?

 

Now, had he tried to hit and run... maybe I'd not feel as bad about this. But that's just terrible and unnecessary.

 

I particularly like the fact that he's trying to assist and these guys are all only worried about "justice" -- some real heros right there.

Really messed up that after they knock the guy out, they steal his belongings.

Local news says this is being investigated as a black on white hate crime. Wouldn't be surprised if the Feds got involved.

This is just wrong on so many levels. Its terrible about what happened to the boy but the driver should not have been beaten and had his stuff stolen for trying to help. If this was done intentionally that would be another thing but you can clearly see in the video that the boy steps right out in front of the truck and was not the drivers fault.

Detroit is a mess. If I ever hit someone by accident there I'd just report it to the cops and leave the scene for safety reasons.

This would encourage hit'n'run

 

If the driver was genuinely concerned and stopped to render aid to the child, he shouldn't have been set upon, the child could have been loaded into the driver's car to be transported to the nearest hospital, or an ambulance called if the child could not be moved, then the police called to investigate, and the case be brought up to whichever magistrate for ruling after all investigation results were handed in.

(ok he should have been paying more attention to the road also)

 

But to beat the guy, especially since he stopped, seems a little too extreme, regardless of locale.

This is just too much. I hope they find these people and they serve a very lengthy jail sentence...

 

The more I read about Detroit the more I never want to step foot in that city :|

I thought black on white crime was never recorded as hate crime? I hope someone was rendering aid to the boy, since they were beating to death the guy that had attempted to help him.
