A man was attacked, beaten and dragged by a group of men in a parking garage during the Charlotte riots on September 21.
Some people on Facebook, where the video was originally shared, said it was a racial attack, with the victim appearing to be white and the attackers African-American.
They said the man was begging for mercy, but he can’t be heard on the video. It appears one of the attackers pulls the man’s pants off in the video.
The video has been viewed more than 1.2 million times on Facebook, where it was first shared by a man named Lenard Bennett, who wrote in the post, “This is beyond wrong smh praying for my city🙏 #Charlotte.” He says on Facebook that he’s a professional photographer who lives in Charlotte.
