The question in the title couldn’t get more rhetorical, by the way:
The incident happened around 9:15 p.m. in the parking lot of the Kroger at Highland and Poplar.
A store employee caught video of the attack.
A 25-year-old man said he was attacked by the group as he walked to his car. Two Kroger employees, 17 and 18, ran to help the man. Both were repeatedly hit in the head and face.
The teens told police pumpkins “in excess of 20 pounds” were thrown on their heads while they were on the ground.
Police say both teens lost consciousness.
Eventually, a security guard stopped the attack.
The media’s going well out of its way to avoid saying any aspect of the attack was racially motivated, but switch the races of the attackers and at least one of the victims and just imagine how this would have been reported.
You WON’T be seeing any of the above footage in subsequent Moms Demand Action ads coming out against citizens’ right to self-defense at Kroger:
