Last week, Denver police arrested 32 people in a series of racially-motivated robberies and assaults, some of which were videotaped, the Denver Post reports. Gang experts say it's part of a trend they're seeing nationally, where black gang members will deliberately target white or Latino men in "tourist districts," taunt them with racial slurs and attack them. (It's usually a small group versus one victim.) The beatings are videotaped, then watched and sold for entertainment. In Denver, the incidents are being treated as bias crimes.
