Chicago man wanted on hate crime charges after bizarre ‘slave’ rant outside Starbucks

Published

on

A Chicago man has been hit with hate crime charges after launching a racist tirade earlier this year after a black man spilled some coffee on his suit.

William “Billy” Boucher is facing upgraded hate crime charges in addition to one count of misdemeanor battery, and a warrant was issued for his arrest after he missed an August court appearance, reported DNAinfo.

The 23-year-old Boucher was recorded June 6 calling black passersby “vermin” and “slave” outside a Starbucks in the Loop neighborhood and then punching an older man and spitting on two other people.

“Shut up, slave!” Boucher shouted during the incident. “Do not talk to me!”

Boucher also referred to the man as livestock and suggested he should be tagged with a bar code involving his Social Security number.

“Get on all fours!” he yelled. “Do not walk on those two legs! You don’t deserve to walk on two legs, vermin.”

The Rogers Parks man was arrested during the incident after he was restrained by several witnesses.

Boucher, who describes himself on Facebook as an entrepreneur, told a Cook County judge during a July court hearing that he makes about $1,200 a month trading stocks online and running two marketing firms.

He asked the court to appoint a public defender in his case.

If he’s arrested on the warrant, Boucher could be held without bond.

As reported by Politico's Jake Sherman, Cheney brought up the president's murder conspiracy theories unprompted during an interview with reporters who had originally asked her about wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I do think the president should stop tweeting about Joe Scarborough," she said. "We’re in the middle of a pandemic. He’s the commander in chief of this nation. And it’s causing great pain to the family of the young woman who died."

Published

on

Trump White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany this week echoed President Donald Trump's statements that allowing everyone to vote by mail would result in an unprecedented surge in "voter fraud."

However, a review conducted by the Tampa Bay Times has found that McEnany herself has voted by mail a total of 11 times in the past decade alone.

"In fact, the Tampa native has voted by mail in every Florida election she has participated in since 2010," the Tampa Bay Times has found. "Most recently, she voted by mail in the state’s March 2020 presidential primary, just as Trump did after he made Florida his new permanent home."
