Florida teens shouting homophobic slurs pummeled a gay man with lawn furniture as he tried to crawl away, shocking video shows.
Orlando cops busted two teenage brothers on hate crime charges and are searching for others after releasing footage of the chaotic attack, authorities said.
“No More Violence,” police tweeted along with the mug shots of Deandre Florence, 14, and Dennis Florence, 16. “We do not tolerate hate.”
The 32-year-old victim told WFTV the teens were looking for anyone who was gay following a an earlier fight at a community center, and they jumped him March 26 as he walked down the street.
About 10 or so of the young punks pummeled the man and stole his pants and wallet during the beatdown.
The victim scrambled beneath a table as the teens slammed lawn chairs on his back, the video revealed. More
