    Conrad Alvin Barrett, 29, was sentenced to nearly six years of federal prison for a racially-motivated attack on a Texas senior in November 2013, according to the U.S. Justice Department.
    A Houston-area man who targeted an African-American senior for a knockout was sentenced on Friday to almost six years in federal prison, officials said.

    Conrad Alvin Barrett, 29, punched a 79-year-old man to the ground in Katy, Texas, in November 2013 in a hate crime he carried out with his cell phone camera rolling, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. The vicious blow from the white Texan fractured Roy Coleman’s jaw in two places, KPRC-TV reported.

    The video shows Barrett laughing and saying “Knockout!” as he fled to his car, officials said. He was arrested hours later when he showed off the video to an off-duty police officer. Barrett pleaded guilty to the racially-motivated assault in June.

    Prosecutors said the footage of the attack starts with Barrett driving around a mall and asking the camera, “The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”

    A few moments later, he got out of his vehicle, asked Coleman, “How’s it going, man?”, and then sucker-punched him, according to court records cited by the Houston Chronicle. The punch mirrors those of other examples of the so-called “knockout game.”

    Videos Barrett filmed earlier in the day show him saying the n-word and commenting that black people “haven't fully experienced the blessing of evolution,” the newspaper reported.

    U.S. District Judge Gray Miller sentenced Barrett on Friday to 71 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release, along with a $2,000 restitution fine. Federal prosecutors had charged him under the 2009 Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

    “The defendant committed this shocking and violent assault against this vulnerable elderly man simply because he was African-American,” the head of DOJ’s civil rights division, Vanita Gupta, said in a statement. Gupta pledged that the DOJ “will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that the rights of victims of violent crimes are vindicated.”

    A lawyer for Coleman welcomed news of the sentencing Friday but mentioned that Coleman “still needs some justice on the civil side” in his pending civil suit against Barrett, according to KPRC.


    Barrett may face more time behind bars because a Fort Bend County grand jury indicted him on injury to an elderly person charges.

    A lawyer for Barrett, who is bipolar, attributed the attack to his “grandiose ideations” and “alcohol abuse” during the trial, the Chronicle reported. Medical examiners judged Barrett competent to stand trial.

    Of course not. Happens here in Chicago all of the time. They just call it "crime". Few years back, a woman I know has a daughter that was in high school and she cut through a normally safe park on the way back home, with two of her friends. They were first verbally and then physically attacked by 6 negrettes. Calling them white bitches and pale crackers, and the like. No hate crime. Police wouldn't do it. It's almost as if it would take extra paper work.

    Assult on the elderly will always get you a stiff sentence in the judicial system. Hate crime status doesn't help either.

    Seems like a fair sentence. Ironically, this tool will be raped repeatedly by colored folks for the next 6 years. Sweet justice!

    Anyone who plays this game deserves 10 yrs min.

    Imagine the logic (or lack of) it takes to do this.
