This is going to make your blood boil. Have you heard about this from the mainstream media? I doubt it. Although, if it were the other way around, there would be non-stop news coverage.
A Far South Side man has been charged with a hate crime after he stabbed a security guard who had just gotten off from work and was crossing the Washington Street Bridge in the West Loop, police said.
Leroy Willis, 45, of the 11000 block of South Wentworth Avenue, was charged Tuesday morning with aggravated battery, hate crime and aggravated attempted robbery in the attack against Todd Light, 49, police said.
Light, who works as a security guard at a downtown building, said he was taking a couple of minutes to relax by the river when Willis approached him.
The attacker yelled, “I hate (expletive) white people, give me your wallet,” and stabbed Light twice, he said. Light said he wrestled with Willis and managed to hold him and force him to drop the knife.
“I held him there and yelled until a passerby came and called the police,” Light said. “I’m really not sure how long I was sitting there yelling. Maybe a couple of minutes.”
