“You Should be Picking Cotton” Yelled Racists Prior to Murdering Black Men

The brother of a mυrder victim says his brother’s kιllers should be charged with a hate crime based on their own comments.
According to reports, the mυrder of Eric Glover happened in Joliet, Illinois.
Four white assailants reportedly taunted their black victims with racial slurs and threαts prior to kιlling and robbing him.
“Monsters.”
“They all are,” said Mark Johnson, brother of mυrder victim Eric Glover, said on Wednesday. “Because you know, it just seems like, I don’t get what human would live with that.”
Johnson told reporters that one of his brother’s attαckers said “you should be picking cotton, this wouldn’t have happened,” the Chicago Sun Times reports.
“It’s a hate crime now,” Johnson told the Chicago Sun-Times while attending the trial of Bethany McKee, who devised a scheme with three others to rob the men in order to get beer money.
McKee is the first of three defendants to go on trial for the slayings of Eric Glover and Terrance Rankins. Both Glover and Rankins were black while the four defendants are white.
Although there were four defendants in all, one defendant, Alisa Massaro, pleaded guilty to lesser charges and received a 10 year sentence.
In January of 2013 McKee was reportedly texting a friend about ways to get beer money. Rankins had bought beer for McKee a few days prior to the incident and she’d seen a large wad of cash during the purchase.
