Video: Man attacks US Army veteran, says “I’ll waste you…you f***ing immigrant”


A U.S. Army veteran who has apparently living in the U.K. for the last eighteen years was the victim of a hate crime on a trolley on Tuesday.

Juan Jasso, a native of Texas, was commuting from Manchester, England when he was assaulted by a group of teenagers after asking them not to swear in front of children.

The teenagers refused to comply with his request, with one saying “F— get off the tram now. Don’t chat s— or get deported.”

“You are extremely ignorant and not very intelligent, you know that?” Jasso replied.

One teen screamed back”I’ll waste you…you f***ing immigrant,” before his friend threw beer on Jasso.

Police in Great Manchester have arrested two men aged 20 and 18 and a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of affray and remain in police custody for questioning, according to Fox.

“We are aware of a video of a hate incident that has surfaced online this morning,” Chief Inspector Gareth Parkin, of Greater Manchester Police, told The Telegraph. “This is a disgusting display of abuse which quite frankly has no place in society.”

“All hate incidents are treated with the utmost severity and this behavior will not be tolerated in Greater Manchester.”

After the incident on Tuesday, Jasso thanked the community for the support on Twitter.
