Knife-wielding men scream ‘Heil Hitler’ as they attack Hispanic teens, family at Los Angeles playground

Published

Three white supremacists were arrested on Sunday after attacking multiple Hispanic men and women at a public park in Los Angeles, California, ABC 7 News and NBC Los Angeles reported.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said they received numerous calls around 4:30 p.m. from people reporting white supremacists attacking people at Stephen Sorensen Park.

Police said the men were screaming “Heil Hitler” and racial slurs — and waving a wallet with a Confederate flag — as they taunted and assaulted three Hispanic teens.

A family tried to intervene in the scuffle, but the white supremacists pulled out knives and threatened them, police said.

“They just started beating them up,” the father of that family, who wished to remain anonymous, explained to NBC Los Angeles. “They started coming towards us, and they pulled out some knives, and they were saying they would kill us.”

The men fled the park after being told police had been called, but were eventually captured.

Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

No one was seriously injured.

The attack came just one day after a Ku Klux Klan rally in nearby Anaheim turned violent, resulting in three counter-protesters being stabbed and two KKK members being “stomped.”

Five members of the KKK who were arrested for their involvement in the Anaheim incident were released on Monday. Police said the KKK members stabbed the counter-protesters in self-defense.

WATCH: Trump wonders if he should start taking insulin

Published

on

On Tuesday, at a press conference, President Donald Trump mused aloud whether he should start taking insulin.

"I don’t use insulin. Should I be? Huh? I never thought about it," he said.

"But I know a lot of people are very badly affected, right?" he added a second later. "Unbelievable."

Insulin is a crucial hormone the regulates blood sugar. People who are afflicted with Type 1 diabetes are incapable of producing it in their pancreas, and thus must administer it to themselves regularly through injections or pumps.

‘Exonerated Five’ member warns of a ‘dangerous time’ after latest Central Park incident

Published

On CNN Tuesday, Yusef Salaam, one of the members of the Exonerated Five, warned about the implications of recent racist incidents to the state of civil rights in America.

"I want to ask you, in the course of the last couple of days we've covered this story, we've covered the story of a man who died after police put him in a hold with a knee to the neck. Yesterday I spoke with an African-American journalist who covered the Kentucky governor being hung in effigy, with people doing it who didn't seem to understand why that was problematic," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "And I just wonder what that says to you, after all of these decades, about where the country is."

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin slams Twitter’s ‘corporate gibberish’ explanation of why they won’t enforce their rules against Trump

Published

On CNN Tuesday, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin laid into Twitter for their refusal to take down tweets from President Donald Trump falsely accusing MSNBC host and former Congressman Joe Scarborough of murdering a staffer — despite pleas from the staffer's family to make him stop.

"Twitter says it's deeply sorry about the pain, that they're working on how to figure out how to handle situations like this," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "I wonder if there's any legal recourse that this man has."

"I think frankly it's unlikely that he has any able to sue Twitter or even the president, but you know, Twitter is a private company," said Toobin. "They have rules. Like Greyhound buses have rules. You can't stay on a Greyhound bus if you break the rules. President Trump has broken the rules of Twitter over and over again, and Twitter has done nothing but put out statements of corporate gibberish like the one it did today."
