An African-American man from Queens, New York who yelled "fuck white people" before launching an unprovoked machete attack on a random 30-year-old white male outside a mall in Toronto, Canada is being charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, and possession of a weapon—but he is not being charged with a hate crime.
Toronto Police Sgt. Gale Corra said the two men had no previous contact and no history with each other.A bystander managed to break up the fight and buy enough time for the victim to escape without serious injury. A private security guard then tackled the suspect from behind and subdued him until police could arrive.
A commenter named "Kantata," who claims to have witnessed the attack, says the attacker, who has since been identified as 35-year-old Arlington Thompson, "was yelling 'No more white people! F*** white people! Down with white people!' over and over."
CP24 has video showing police taking the man down after the assault, Thompson can be heard muttering something about "white people" and shouting "stand up for yourself black people!"
Earlier this year 24-year-old Brittany Bachinsky was charged with a hate crime for telling Calgary cab driver Safou Ranna he "shouldn’t be allowed in [her] country" and for threatening to "f**k [him] up."
Bachinsky's verbal threat got her charged with a hate crime, yet Thompson's verbal threat followed by a violent unprovoked machete attack has not merited the same charges.
What do you think, if it was a white man who attacked a random black man with a machete while screaming "f**k black people" would he be given the same treatment?
UPDATE: The attacker, Arlington Thompson is from Queens, New York.
