A 20-year-old man was arrested on Thursday after a video went viral of him assaulting an elderly man & an elderly woman in a Michigan nursing home. The suspect Jadon Hayden, was arrested after the videos went viral on Twitter and social media users assisted law enforcement in identifying the attacker, Post Millennial reported
“The nursing home was unaware of the assault until they saw the video,” said Detroit Police Chief James Craig during a press conference Thursday. “We are still investigating that aspect of the case, but we do have a suspect in custody.”
Nursing home employees said they were “shocked.” It was Hayden himself who recorded the video. The suspect had a YouTube channel where he ranted against white people on a regular basis, after these videos were discovered, the videos of the beatings and the racist rantings were quickly removed from YouTube, however a screen capture of a Facebook post was saved and is circulating online, displaying the suspect’s mindset. It is not known due to conflicting reports if the suspect worked at the nursing home. One local Detroit report stated he was a patient in the Nursing Home, which does not make sense since the suspect is only 20 years old.
These appear based on the suspect’s words, to be race based crimes. Numerous social media users, watched his YouTube channel which contained the beating videos and other videos with rants against white people, before it was totally removed The media has not jumped on this story’s racial aspect and has barely outside of local media in Detroit been reported to the public
Below is a Facebook post (Sensitive language) from the suspect and the shocking videos, they are graphic, viewer discretion warning.
