Incident Report: Salt Lake City, UT

 

A man was standing in the courtyard of the Salt Lake City mechanic shop with a metal bar in his hand that looked like it had been plied off a stop sign. He was yelling slurs at Luis and threatening him.
“I hate Mexicans,” he spat. “I f—ing hate Mexicans.”
“Are you part of the Mexican mafia?”
“I’m here to kill a Mexican.”
Jose stepped in front of his son, and the man began swinging the five-foot pole. Luis grabbed a bar from a tool chest and tried to defend his dad. The man slugged the teen in the face, knocking him unconscious, and then started to beat him.
