Two Missouri men were arrested over the weekend after surveillance video confirmed that they were responsible for throwing eggs at African-Americans waiting at bus stops during a hate crime spree that lasted months.

According to the St. Louis Police Department, David Ragain and Jesse Reed were seen throwing eggs and shouting racial slurs at a black woman waiting at a bus stop on Friday night.

“A white van occupied by two white males approached the bus stop, started yelling offensive, hateful language motivated by race at [a victim],” St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson explained. “Officers were quickly able to work with the real time crime center to identify a van, identify a plate and find the two occupants.”

“These weren’t two white teenagers on a joy ride,” Dotson noted.

Resident Kiekieho Hymm Lotus told KDSK that the racially motivated attacks had been taking place for months.

“The egg hit me in my neck,” Lotus recalled.

Ragain and Reed, who are both 30 years old, were charged with “assault motivated by discrimination.” Bail was set at $20,000.

Police said that they believe other members of the community have been targeted and have asked for victims to come forward.

Fox News host battles Trump spokeswoman who suggests Roger Stone got ‘medical commutation’ for COVID

Published

Jenna Ellis, an attorney and spokesperson for Donald Trump, suggested that Roger Stone had received a "medical commutation" from the president because he was at risk for COVID-19.

While interviewing Ellis on Sunday, Fox News host Gillian Turner asked Ellis if Trump gave "serious thought" to his decision to commute Stone's sentence.

"Obviously, I'm not going to get into the internal deliberations," Ellis insisted. "But I think the timing does speak for itself, where this was just days before Roger Stone was supposed to report to federal prison."

"This was a political target that was designed to target President Trump's allies," she continued. "That was just absolutely absurd."
