Apparently the mob that murdered the passenger of a car that struck a small boy in Austin, Texas wasn't really a mob. A good turn of events, because this story kind of disturbed me when it first came out.
Morales, a 40-year-old house painter, died after being attacked while coming to the defense of his co-worker Victor Medel, who struck a young boy with his car while dropping Morales off at the Booker T. Washington housing complex on Thompson Street near Rosewood Avenue in East Austin.
His death drew worldwide media attention after police initially connected it to a crowd from a nearby Juneteenth celebration. City officials later reduced the number of people in the area and said the attack was not connected to the festival at Rosewood Park.
To the five people who stepped up and snitched on this moron, which included some of his friends,
- "The affidavit includes summaries of statements given by five people who said they witnessed the beating. Willie Warren, 20; Charles Bernard Davis, 23; and Brandon Cleveland, 18, all told police that they were in a car with Colvin before the beating."
You are the Snitch of the Week.
