Scott Leader, one of the Leader brothers who assaulted a homeless Latino man drew inspiration from Donald Trump’s racist, anti-immigrant rhetoric. It turns out Scott Leader has a history of hate crimes. After 9/11 the elder Leader attacked a Muslim man and called him a “terrorist.”
“Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported.”
Boston police believe two brothers are responsible for a brutal attack Wednesday evening that left a homeless Hispanic man with a broken nose and covered in urine. One of the men, 38-year-old Scott Leader, told police he was inspired by presidential candidate Donald Trump’s message on immigration.
“Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported,” Leader allegedly told cops when he was arrested with his brother, 30-year-old Steve Leader.
The Boston Globe reported that a witness saw the brothers beating the 58-year-old victim with a pole three or four times as he attempted to defend himself.
This isn’t the first time the Leader brothers have been charged with a crime. After the attacks on September 11, Scott Leader was convicted with a hate crime after he assaulted a Muslim man and called him a “terrorist.”
