Brian Ogle beating; Why have Sylacauga, Alabama police been reluctant to call a teen’s beating a hate crime? Questioned Black Lives Matter movement.

Brian Ogle a 17 year old Sylacauga, Alabama high school student has been brutally beaten after a social media post saw the teen question the Black Lives Matter movement and taking on a pro police stand. A beating that the teen’s mother is calling a hate crime.

The beating came after a homecoming football game in which witnesses said Brian Ogle was viciously beaten at the hands of one or more black teens who took exception to the teen’s post.

A report via WBRC-TV said authorities found Ogle on the ground bleeding from his head.

At the time, the teen was taken to Coosa Valley Medical Center before being airlifted to UAB Hospital where he was in critical condition and recovering from the head injuries. Medics said the incurred a broken skull and bleeding from the brain.

Told the teen’s mother, Brandi Allen: ‘Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we’re here. 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.’

According to WBMA, Ogle’s assailants wore Black Lives Matter shirts where he was beaten up by multiple persons at an abandoned parking lot on Friday.

Responding to the beating, Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson said  police interviewed about 20 people, including witnesses, family members and persons of interest.

Police haven’t released a motive, but said the attack appeared to be racially motivated and the social media post could have been a factor.

Ogle’s mother said that the altercations started at Sylacauga High School and then escalated onto Facebook. She said her son received threatening messages and even brought it up to the principal, but they allegedly told him there was nothing they could do about it.

Sylacauga City Schools Superintendent Todd Freeman said in a statement that the district and police were made aware of the threats and the school implemented safety measures to keep students safe.

Reiterated Brandi Allen: ‘They have a job to do it at school and they failed to do it,’ 

‘I want to see them handcuffed. I want to see them put in jail. I don’t wish any harm on anyone’s child. I would like for them to have to look at my child right now. I don’t want any other mother to have to go through what I went through these past few days.’

Police have not yet made any arrests in this case while declining at present to call the beating a hate crime. What do you think?

    Well lookie what I found; Yep… District Attorney, 29th Circuit (Talladega County) Steven Giddens is on the list of Alabama Democrats Office Candidates.


    The liberal ideology is rotting this country from the inside out like a cancer. Who cares if this is deemed a hate crime or not, it’s obvious racist hate is involved but it’s more than that.

    Between the councilwoman being the mother of one of the criminals, this flaming democrat DA being no better than Loretta Lynch, adding to all the other politicized rhetoric from our POTUS and every other democrat on how bad white people are…. it is factual that this is a politically charged racist hate crime. And they have the political power to sweep this under the rug – which they are doing be not treating this as attempted murder.

    One, to your number 6 = you are a pointless waste of flesh and haven’t the logic to know which is the right side to chose. If you decided to educate yourself on the statistics and facts, you wouldn’t be such a moron.

    “According to WBMA, Ogle’s assailants wore Black Lives Matter shirts” technically, someone did say it… technically, these shirts were worn at school prior to his posts of Blue support.

    Here’s some good news for you…. well, maybe not you but everyone else.


    The Obama administration and every leftist scumbag in the Democratic party since the 1970’s has made race a political weapon. How blind or stupid are you? There is no line between the two any longer thanks to the policies and propaganda of the racist leftists, from the office of the president down to every “victim convinced” minority.

    BLM is a politicized racist hate group, violence at every gathering or not, violence in small groups in hiding or not. It’s a racist hate crime that has been used by the usual suspects of extreme left ideology. Which seems to be consumer a bigger swath of the liberals’ views as they distort the truth.

    Because, collectively as liberals, and almost without exception they refuse to see the truth and then only ignore blatant hate crimes that are against innocent white people. The politicians, the media, the judicial system… if they are left thinkers, they dismiss it. That is why they are grouped together.

    Why aren’t stories of white people attacked by black people given the MAJOR attention on the news that blacks receive?

    America watches as Racist run news sites post their one sided stories.

    Find these culprits and string them up. Judge, jury, executioner! So sick and tired of these ridiculous movements. All
    lives matter! Period.

    First, we have yet to learn the motive.

    Second, political views are not covered under hate crimes laws.

    Third, nobody said attackers wore BLM shirts as the article says:

    “She says he was targeted for posting pro police comments on Facebook, after some Sylacauga High School students wore Black Lives Matter shirts to school last week.”

    Fourth, if you say it was done as a response to his FB comments, dont be an idiot and follow up by claiming it was a racist attack because you already ruled that out by saying he was targeted for political views.

    Fifth, people need to stop being hypocrites. You cant claim police abuse is due to only a few bad apples then try to claim everyone in BLM is guilty of battery and attempted murder because of this attack. It is not only hypocritical, but unbelievably racist.

    Sixth, I do not support Blue or Black Lives Matters because they are only working to cause more problems versus solutions.
