DAILYKENN.com -- A 32-year-old male was arrested after allegedly punching a 77-year-old man outside a grocery, reports say.
The attack occurred in Las Vegas on July 30, 2020.
The suspect has been released on bail, is required to wear a monitoring device, and has been ordered to stay away from the grocery and the victim.
The incident was captured on video.
It is one of many similar attacks in which elderly people are randomly selected to be punched by younger, stronger individuals. Often, the attackers continue walking as they casually strike their victims.
Such attacks are not new nor are the uncommon. However, the proliferation of video recording devices — such as security cameras and cell phones — make such attacks seem to be occurring more frequently.
A similar incident occurred in New York city.
UPDATE: The suspect involved in pushing the 92-year-old female in Manhattan has been APPREHENDED. https://t.co/GseUJRTJty— NYPD NEWS (@NYPDnews) June 16, 2020
• The attacks explain, but do necessarily not justify, Jim Crow laws that restricted blacks access to some businesses and services. The intent of Jim Crow was to protect whites from black crime. In so doing, law-abiding blacks were effectively "punished" for crimes they did not commit.
• Violent criminals often display the following four traits:
1. Low intelligence
2. Low impulse control
3. Low executive function
4. Low affective empathy
