*This story is just straight up senseless, stupid and horrible. In Chicago, police are reviewing video of shocking beating of a man after several people pulled him out of his car.
The victim, 49-year-old David Wilcox, told the Chicago Tribune that the incident started with a minor car accident. Wilcox said one of his attackers was driving a black sedan that scraped the side of his Pontiac Bonneville.
“I stopped and parked. And I asked if they had insurance, and the next thing that I knew they were beating the sh*t out of me,” Wilcox told the Tribune.
The video shows the attackers – who are black and appear to be teenagers beating the crap out of Wilcox – who is white. Meanwhile, bystanders can be heard laughing and shouting “Beat his ass,” “You voted Trump” and “Don’t vote Trump.” One of the attackers even gets into the driver seat of Wilcox’s car. Wilcox tries to pull his attacker out of the car, but the man accelerates.
Wilcox said he grabbed onto the door frame and was dragged at high speed until he was forced to let go, leaving him with numerous scrapes on his legs.
Wilcox was taken to the hospital and amazingly is in good condition.
Interestingly, Wilcox said he did vote for Trump, but no one in the crowd would have known that. He said the taunts appeared to come from people watching the beating, including one person at the bus stop who he heard say, “Yeah, it’s one of them white boy Trump guys.”
Wilcox believes the attackers, who were black, were egged on by the bystanders.
“They intensified it, aggravated it and made it more than it was.”
Wilcox said he voted for Trump because “he’s gonna bring back the economy. I believe he’s gonna be the one to protect the (nation). I know he doesn’t speak politically correct sometimes, but 95 percent of the country doesn’t.”
Chicago police are trying to identify the attackers. The car has not been recovered.
