According to CBS Detroit, the Detroit Police Department is investigating a Twitter video posted by user @BinSwanson as a possible hate crime. The video posted by @BinSwanson is one he took of himself pointing a gun at a black man who he thought was gay.
A spokesperson for the police department said, “Obviously this is very troubling, anytime a person would feel comfortable or brazen enough to point a weapon at an individual and then post it up on social media for everybody to see… it’s very troubling. We can’t have people committing those types of crimes; and then, on top of which, targeting persons of any class, regardless of how they identify. It’s just unacceptable.”
Below is the video of @BinSwanson pointing the gun at the black man. Underneath that video is another from CBS Detroit. It includes a video clip of @BinSwanson ranting about how much he hates gays.
