Brandon Jackson was reportedly jumped by 7 or 8 white men in 2006. One would think that the white men would’ve been charged with a crime, maybe even a hate crime, but actually the reverse happened. Six years after the fact, Jackson was sentenced to 12 years in prison for attempted murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a weapon he reportedly used to defend himself against the mob.
The fight began when Jackson was helping his employer move furniture when he noticed a rowdy group of intoxicated whites fighting across the street. He ran over to get a closer look, when one of the intoxicated fighters swung on Jackson.
Jackson tried to run, but was chased by the aggressor, who was now accompanied by 7 to 8 other white men, who followed Brandon and then reportedly began stomping and kicking him while yelling, “Kill the n*gger!”
In a recent interview with News One, Brandon’s mother says she hasn’t lost faith and won’t give up on freeing her son.
