WATCH: White man sprays black teen with hose after hurling racist abuse and claiming to be KKK member

Published

An East Rochester man sprayed a black teenager with a hose during a confrontation that was captured on video.

The man, whose name has not been released, claimed to be a Ku Klux Klan member during an argument with some black and white teenagers outside his home, and he sprayed one 14-year-old boy as he walked away from the white man, reported WROC-TV.

“You shouldn’t be f*cking with the Klan,” the man says, and walks toward his yard, where he grabs the hose and hurls a racial slur at the boy.

The teen remains on the sidewalk and taunts the man with the N-word and other profane insults, as the other teens giggle, and then the man sprays the boy in the head as he slowly walks away with a white girl.

Police received two calls related to the incident — one from the teens, who said the man had been taking photos of them as they played in a nearby park, and another from the man, who said they had been unkind to his elderly mother.

The teens argued with the man at the park, and the confrontation continued outside his house.

“He was outside doing it again, flipping them off,” said the boy’s mother, Christina Poles. “My son said something along the lines of, ‘why do you keep flipping us off,’ said some other profanities I wish he hadn’t.”

Police questioned the man and the teens but did not see the video until Poles shared it on social media.

“It was like a scene out of the 60s,” Poles said. “You don’t see stuff like that in 2019.”

Poles wants the man to be charged in connection with the incident and said police assured her he would be, but the incident remains under investigation.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Monday accused President Donald Trump of presiding over "the worse government blunder in modern history."

At his daily COVID-19 briefing, Cuomo said that it was time for the president to hit the "reset button" on his handling of the pandemic.

"If we don't tell the truth on the reset, COVID will never end," the New York governor explained. "It will ricochet across the country. It will just bounce back and forth."

"This was a colossal blunder -- how COVID was handled by this federal government," he continued. "Shame on all of you. Six months, lives lost. Hit the reset button, yes."

President Donald Trump on Monday snapped at CNN's Jim Acosta when he reminded the president that the novel coronavirus so far has killed 155,000 Americans.

During a question-and-answer session with reporters, the president boasted that the United States had done an "amazing" job at handling the COVID-19 pandemic, at which point Acosta interrupted him and tried to ask him about the 155,000 people who have died from the disease in just five months.

"The U.S. has so many deaths," Acosta said.

"Hold it!" Trump replied.

"So many countries around the world..."

"Fake news CNN," he said. "Hold it. We have done a great job in this country. We haven't been given enough -- not me, Vice President Pence, the task force -- have not been given the kind of credit."

One family in Texas recently used their loved one’s obituary to criticize President Donald Trump and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for allowing “needless” COVID-19 deaths.

David W. Nagy died alone in a hospital bed, leaving behind his "inconsolable wife."

"He suffered greatly from the ravages of the COVID-19 virus and the separation from his much loved family who were not allowed at his bedside," the obituary says.

"Family members believe David's death was needless," the obituary continues. "They blame his death and the deaths of all of the other innocent people, on Trump, Abbott and all the other politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives."
