This is what ‘protesting’ looks like to some people. Beating a boy to the brink of death. Just because he had a different political view. Sick.
The mother of a beaten 17-year-old Sylacauga, Alabama, teen is now calling the assault a hate crime.
Brandi Allen says her son was targeted for supporting policein the aftermath of recent shootings.
She says she can’t imagine a situation, where anyone would deserve what happened to him.
“Not knowing if my son is going to make it to his 18th birthday this month, I don’t know if anybody can understand what that feels like,” Allen said.
She says her 17-year-old son Brian Ogle is in critical condition, with a fractured skull and trauma to his brain.
As of Sunday, he’s doing better, he’s able to recognize his mother, take commands, and say what year it is.
And something that used to be an annoyance to Allen is now a blessing.
“His snoring, his snoring is the best sound to hear, cause we could have lost him.” Allen said.
