Two men allegedly brutally beat a construction worker in New York City’s Hells Kitchen neighborhood over the weekend while out partying, according to WPIX. The men, Veton Balidemaj and Klevis Vulaj, found their way onto a private construction site just west of Midtown Manhattan late Friday night/early Saturday morning, when the worker asked the pair to leave the work area.
“We’re out here partying and you’re out here working like a n—-r,” one of the men allegedly said, adding: “What are you going to do about it, n—-r?”
One of the duo allegedly then tackled the construction worker and punched him multiple times, court documents show, while another kicked the victim.
The unnamed 48-year-old worker suffered a fractured orbital bone and several lacerations to his head, according to court records. Balidemaj and Vulaj were subsequently arrested and charged with assault as a hate crime after police caught up with the pair and they were arraigned Saturday in Manhattan Criminal Court.
The changed men are expected to be back in court Feb. 14.
Fox’s Judge Napolitano blasts Trump’s ‘profound violation’ of the Constitution
Fox News personalities Neil Cavuto and Andrew Napolitano blasted the White House’s announcement on Thursday that the United States will host the upcoming G7 meeting of world leaders at President Donald Trump’s own Doral resort in Miami, Florida.
“Just the appearance level alone, the president of the United States rewarding his family-run business and perhaps one of its premier money-makers, the Doral Club Resort, to host this big event. The spillover effect from that, even at cost, is very good for whatever locale you choose,” Cavuto said. (In fact, Trump’s club appears to be in dire financial straits.)
‘Malevolent Kraken’: Tulsi Gabbard slammed after attacking Clinton over ‘Russian asset’ claim
Democratic U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii launched an attack against her own party and her own party's most-recent presidential nominee late Friday afternoon, as reports grew that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Russia is grooming an unnamed but current 2020 presidential candidate, a woman, to run as a third-party candidate.
Tulsi Gabbard goes to war with Hillary Clinton over ‘Russian asset’ allegation
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that she thinks Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is being “groomed” by Russia to run as a third-party candidate in 2020.
Clinton made the allegations during an interview with David Plouffe, Barack Obama’s former campaign manager. During the interview, Clinton alleged that Russia used 2016 Green Party nominee Jill Stein as an “asset” and suggested that Gabbard would play a similar role in the upcoming election without mentioning her name.
