Black gang members are seeking out white and Latinos in public places, assaulting them, and then distributing videotapes of the incident on the underground market, reports The Denver Post.
Denver police have arrested 32 people in an investigation into what authorities describe as a string of racially-motivated attacks and robberies, according to the report.
Many of the attacks take place in entertainment districts where four or five black males will surround a victim, who is taunted with racial slurs before being struck in the face. It’s all recorded on tape, and then distributed to gang members in other cities, who then make their own videos.
Gang members attempt to knock out the victim, who is relieved of their wallet, in one punch.
Experts are saying the phenomenon is becoming a national trend, stretching into places like Minnesota and Florida.
