The two men have a long history of robbing and attacking elderly people.
Police arrested and charged two men in connection to the death of 75-year-old Pak Ho in Oakland, CA.
People blamed President Donald Trump and white supremacy on the death because everything is Trump’s fault. Except the two men are black and have lengthy rap sheets.
On Tuesday, Elbert Britton, 56, and Teaunte Bailey, 26, allegedly attacked Ho during his morning walk. Ho fell after the men struck him, causing him to hit his head on the sidewalk.
The fall left Ho braindead. Doctors took him off of life support on Thursday.
Britton faces “second-degree robbery, first and second-degree robbery, receiving stolen property and unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle.”
Britton has robbery and residential burglary convictions in his past.
Authorities charged Bailey with special circumstance – felony murder in the course of robbery and numerous felonies. Some murders receive the special circumstance label, “including crimes against elders.”
Instead of waiting for facts (because we all know facts are not sexy), people immediately assumed racism. Britton targeted Asians in the past, but we do not know if he only targeted Asians.
We know Bailey prefers to attack elderly people:
Bailey is described to ABC7 News anchor Dion Lim by Alameda County law enforcement as someone with a criminal history spanning back to 2012 including multiple felonies in Oakland. The most recent less than a month ago when he allegedly broke into senior living apartment and violently shoved and robbed a 72-year-old man.
People magazine wrote about Bailey’s facts but used half of the article to preach about hate crimes against Asians.
President Joe Biden had no problem politicizing Ho’s death:
“Too often, we’ve turned against one another,” he said. “A mask — the easiest thing to do to save lives — sometimes it divides us. States pitted against one another instead of working with each other. Vicious hate crimes against Asian Americans who have been attacked, harassed, blamed and scapegoated.”
“At this very moment, so many of them, our fellow Americans, they’re on the front lines of this pandemic trying to save lives,” continued Biden. “And still — still — they are forced to live in fear for their lives just walking down streets in America. It’s wrong, it’s un-American and it must stop.”
