The video shows the white man driving around in his car looking for a black person to “knockout,” because according to him, he wanted to see if the video gets “nationally televised.”
“For about a week now I have been unable to go through with this plan.” said Conrad Barrett of Houston, Texas. “The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised.”
Well not only did it get televised, but the white man, Conrad Barrett, was arrested and charged in a hate crime and is now serving 71 months in prison.
Roy Coleman was left with a broken jaw and is traumatized by the incident and the memories it brought back.. His daughter expressed how devastated she was after seeing the video.
“When I first saw the video, I was devastated,” she said. “It broke my heart to see someone hit my father. He’s 81. It goes way back emotionally. I think he’s broken.”
She went on to say that although her father is no longer able to live on his own, “I don’t hold any hard feelings for that young man. My heart goes out to his parents because they are hurting just like we are. They’re hurting because they’ve lost a son and I’m hurting because I’ve lost half of my dad.”0
