So a black dude punches a possibly drunk white guy, putting him on life support. The white guy later dies.
As a result, the black guy is currently facing third-degree assault charges and is placed on leave.
If it were a white guy who punched a black guy to death, I’m fairly certain the charges would be much worse and we would certainly see a media hellstorm.
A Wake Forest University assistant basketball coach has been placed on leave following an incident in which he allegedly punched a tourist in New York that led to the man’s death.
Jamill Jones, an assistant men’s basketball coach at Wake Forest University, allegedly punched Sandor Szabo, 35, from Boca Raton, Florida, outside a Queens hotel early Sunday, police said.
Szabo later died, and on Friday, the New York City medical examiner’s office ruled his death a homicide.
Jones, who surrounded to police Thursday, was notified Friday about the school’s decision.
Wake Forest’s athletic director Ron Wellman gave Jones the news, according to a statement from Wake Forest Athletic Communications.
He “spoke with Jones [Friday] and he agreed that the decision is appropriate at this time given the circumstances,” the statement added.
