CNN's Don Lemon: Black Teens Torturing Disabled White Kid 'Not Evil'

"I don’t think it’s evil."

According to CNN's Don Lemon, once voted the worst journalist of the year by Columbia Journalism Review, four black thugs kidnapping a mentally disabled white man and saying "f–ck white people" is not "evil," and only the result of "bad home training."

Speaking about the Facebook Live video from Wednesday, Lemon and Matt Lewis discussed the horrific nature of the act, disagreeing on just how terrible it actually was. 

"The fact that this was a vulnerable person that was probably duped into going along with them. It appears it is someone who is mentally disabled, I think makes it even more sickening," said guest Matt Lewis. "But at the end of the day, you just try to wrap your head around evil. That’s what this is, it’s evil. It’s brutality. It’s man’s inhumanity to man."

"I don’t think it’s evil," Lemon replied. "I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training. I say, who is raising these young people? I have no idea who’s raising these young people. Because no one I know on Earth who is 17 years old or 70 years old would ever think of treating another person like that. It is inhumane. And you wonder, at 18 years old, where is your parent? Where’s your guardian?"

During the same discussion, Democrat strategist, Symone Sanders said the attack was "not a hate crime" if the suspects were motivated by "hate of Donald Trump." 

When controversies erupted on the killing of black teen Michael Brown when assaulted a police officers, Lemon continued to paint the Ferguson police as racists while openly sympathizing with Brown's family on television, even though he was guilty of violating the law.
