Online discussion has been sparked by a frightening video showing a senior citizen being repeatedly hit in the face in a Detroit nursing home till he bleeds. A young black man, 20-year-old Jadon Hayden, punches an elderly white man who is lying in bed in the viral footage that has gone viral on social media.
The victim, who was identified as Norman Bledsoe was a veteran and is now getting beaten until he is covered in blood since she is powerless to resist. As the situation progresses, the assailant starts cursing at the elderly man, urging him to “get the f**k off” what he claims is his bed and using the n-word.
The assault on Bledsoe was captured in a very vivid and distressing video. The victim’s face was covered in blood, grabbing the camera to show the victim’s bloodied face, the suspect said, “See this b–ch -ss n—-r here? ”
“Get the f–k off my bed, n—-r.” With a white sheet, the suspect paused momentarily to wipe the elderly man’s blood off. Hayden then asked just before the video ended, “F–k wrong with you?”
Sadly, the Army veteran passed away two months after the horrifying assault, raising the question of whether the beating was a significant factor in his demise. Kevin Bledsoe, Norman Bledsoe’s nephew, claimed that the attack left Norman Bledsoe with four broken fingers, shattered ribs, and a broken jaw. Former President Donald Trump even criticized the attack in the White House.
Kevin said, “His eating habits went downhill after (the assault), and he lost quite a bit of weight.”
Hayden was charged with two charges of assault, larceny, and taking a device used for financial transactions at the time of his arrest, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. The court decided to drop all charges against Hayden after waiting years to learn when the trial would begin.
Jadon Hayden’s father, Marty Hayden, said that his son is autistic, has schizophrenia, and has a history of aggressive conduct, “He shouldn’t be in prison,” he said. Adding that if his son had been found guilty and imprisoned, it would have just made his mental health problems worse; the court then claimed that they found Hayden incompetent to stand trial.
The family’s feelings may have changed now that they know Hayden was brought to the nursing home because of Michigan’s regulations, but many people blame Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for the terrible incident. However, at the time of the assault, Kevin Bledsoe didn’t have kind words for his uncle’s attacker.
“We (going to) crush you like a grape. It’s only a matter of time. It’s only a matter of time,” the victim’s nephew declared.
