Someone took his car keys out of his pocket. He was just standing there. Then he went after the guy who took his car keys, and the thief decked him. Laid him right out. Then everyone swarmed him going through his pockets and eventually stripping him naked. He was so dazed he couldn't even defend himself.
Ok I was able to watch the video.
By saying it was on St. Patty's day I had assumed alcohol was involved. Misleading in a sense.
Let's be realistic.
Why was he walking in that neighborhood? You're in an area with likely high crime, you clearly stand out, and it looked like it was a random attack with the intention to put it on the internet.
Not to put any blame on him, but being that I lived in the Detroit area I'm not surprised by what happened. I've seen these mob beatings before and stuff like this. There isn't much you can do to stop it, or help the person. Unfortunately, it falls on the individual to do what they can to provide a certain level of security for themselves.
We see it in comedies.. a white guy walking into an all black bar. Very rarely does that go well. We see a black guy walk into a white bar. Doesn't end well. Behind some jokes there is truth.
