Check this out, via Fox2Detroit:
DETROIT (FOX 2) – The video of a 20-year-old brutally beating an elderly patient at a Detroit nursing home has gotten national attention – and even the President has weighed in. Now police are investigating a possible second incident caught on camera while the young man’s father says there’s more to the story.
He said his son called 911 and was taken to a mental health facility in Ann Arbor. Last Wednesday, he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and said he was supposed to be taken to another facility to be quarantined.
Absolutely shocking footage has emerged from a black male nurse from Detroit (Jadon H.), who filmed himself beating elderly white men into a bloody pulp.
"Get the fuck off my bed, N.," he is heard saying.
