The awkward moment when you try to excuse your racist thuggery by claiming it was all part of a “social experiment”.
Conrad Barrett will be spending a long time behind bars after he ran up to a 79-year-old black man and punched him to the ground.
The 29-year-old, dubbed ‘The Knockout Guy’, filmed the cowardly attack on Roy Coleman, claiming: “The plan is to see if I hit an elderly black person, would this be televised nationally?”
He filmed himself in the moments leading up to the attack, cruising around the streets looking for an elderly African-American victim, saying he had to “step up the courage” to go through with the disgraceful assault.
In the shocking footage, he can then be seen running over to Coleman, saying “Hey, how’s it going man? huh? How you doing?” before punching Coleman in the face and dropping him to the ground.
He then runs off while laughing hysterically and shouting “knockout”, before leaping into his car and speeding off.
The horrendous human being and all around bellend fractured Mr Coleman’s jaw in two places and left him with missing teeth after the November 2013 attack in Texas.
Barrett was arrested shortly after the attack, having shown the video to an off-duty police officer. The video was later made public by the U.S. Department of Justice, along with prior videos in which he frequently used the n-word and made other racist comments.
Barrett has now been jailed for nearly six years after admitting racially motivated assault and, honestly, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
