Just then, the man, who was wearing a pink T-Shirt, approaches like some faux-caped crusader, with a firearm at his side, demanding “Who did it?” “That guy in the red,” the woman said pointing at one of the boys. “You ran over my foot!” she reiterates. “You fucking losers. You fucking stupid n–gers. You’re all fucking dumb-ass fucking n–gers,” the man shouts at the teens before eventually walking away. In another video, the man, who is in his car this time could be hear yelling out of his window, “N–gers suck!”

Dream Defenders slammed Bartlett’s charge as a “slap on the wrist,” a notion that was echoed by Miami City Commissioner Keon Hardemon in an Instagram post. “I wonder what the narrative would have been had he shot one of those children. Assault with a deadly weapon and calling them n–gers sounds like a hate crime to me,” Hardemon wrote in his caption underneath several videos from the incident. “Mark Bartlett was arrested but his charge doesn’t reflect his assault yet. Let’s see how our States Attorneys Office decides to file charges,” he added.
