An Alabama teenager was critically injured with a cracked skull and brain bleed stemming from a Friday assault and his mother believes the injuries are a result of her son's public support for the law enforcement community.
17-year old Brian Ogle was allegedly attacked by a group of teens following an argument over Ogle's pro-police Facebook posts.
The resulting attack left Ogle with severe injuries.
"Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I’m still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being," said Brandi Allen, Ogle's mother.
She added, "I want to see them in jail. This most certainly is a race issue. It’s a hate crime.”
