A white family was viciously attacked last Friday night in Florence, Alabama by a group of between twenty and thirty Black teens who yelled, “Get that white!” according to one of the victims.
“According to the victim’s wife, who witnessed the attack, the group “was using slurs of race” while tasing her husband and beating him.
““Randomly, they just him me in the back of the head,” said 14-year-old Brandon Dawes. “I didn’t think nothing of it at first because, well, I thought maybe somebody tripped or something.””
Juli Dawes, the wife of Kevin Dawes, told WHNT in a videotaped interview about the attackers assaulting her husband.
“They’re screaming you know, yeah, ‘get that white!,’ you know and Tasing him and laughing and taunting.”
Both Kevin and Juli Dawes described the mob as a “wall of people” in separate interviews with WHNT.
The mob first attacked fourteen year-old Brandon Dawes from behind, then swarmed the father as he tried to protect his son—savagely beating and Tasing Kevin Dawes–and then smashed the windows on the family’s van as the wife and the couple’s four-year old boy cowered inside.
