Unreal: CNN’s Don Lemon says video beating of white man not ‘evil,’ but result of ‘bad home training’

Pretty much every civilized human being agrees that the Facebook live video showing the egregious beating of a disabled white man by four blacks in Chicago is, at best, evil.  CNN’s Don Lemon, however, has a different take.  While discussing the issue, he said it wasn’t “evil,” but the result of youths with “bad home training.”

Here’s video, and it’s quite disturbing:

At the end of the day, you just try to wrap your head around evil,“ said Daily Caller columnist Matt Lewis. “That’s what this is: it’s evil, it’s brutality, it’s man’s inhumanity to man.”

“I don’t think it’s evil,” Lemon said in response while denouncing the video. “I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training.”

“I have no idea who is raising these young people, because no one I know on earth who is 17-years-old or 70-years-old would ever think of treating another person like that,” he added. “You wonder, at 18-years-old, where is your parent, where is your guardian?”

Bad home training?  Really?

Needless to say, Lemon’s comments sparked a great deal of anger on Twitter.

That’s putting it mildly.

For what it’s worth, Lemon isn’t the only one who doesn’t think this video is evil.  As I reported earlier this morning, Facebook told users the video, which is so brutal we refuse to post it here, doesn’t violate their so-called “community standards.”

Meanwhile, voters say CNN is the “least trusted” network for news.  Wonder why?
