The video of a 20-year-old brutally beating an elderly patient at a Detroit nursing home has gotten national attention – and even the President has weighed in.
President Donald Trump tweeted in disbelief after disturbing videos surfaced appearing to show a black man beating white elderly patients to a pulp at a Michigan nursing home.
‘Is this even possible to believe? Can this be for real? Where is this nursing home, how is the victim doing?’ the president tweeted later that same evening.
The violent video is incredibly difficult to watch for most – including the father of the younger man, who says he’s praying for the elderly victim.
Absolutely shocking footage has emerged from a black male nurse from Detroit (Jadon H.), who filmed himself beating elderly white men into a bloody pulp.
"Get the fuck off my bed, N.," he is heard saying.

Now police are investigating a possible second incident caught on camera while the young man’s father says there’s more to the story.
“That hurts to see that,” he said. “What he did is wrong and (I offer) my apologies to the victim’s family.”
The father, who asked not to be identified, said his son has had several health issues growing home, has autism, and called from a group home in Chelsea last week to say he wasn’t sleeping, was feeling anxious, and hearing voices.
“I just don’t want people to think that he’s this vicious individual. He’s got mental issues,” his father said.
He said his son called 911 and was taken to a mental health facility in Ann Arbor. Last Wednesday, he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and said he was supposed to be taken to another facility to be quarantined.
“It should’ve never happened because he should’ve never been put in that environment.”
Authorities — following the orders of Governor Gretchen Whitmer — moved the young man to a nursing home to recover from COVID-19.
This is on Governor Whitmer, basically, this proves that she is still sending patients into nursing homes!
Maybe we should make him another victim of the Democrats who sent him there. The way Democrats reason is that if they had not sent him there, he would not have been in a position to abuse the vulnerable.
