A white Houston-area man accused of sucker punching an elderly black man has been indicted on a federal hate crime charge.
The Obama administration filed a federal hate-crimes charge Thursday against a man whom authorities accused of using the “knockout game” to target a black man, videotaping it, and then bragging about the assault to strangers.
