Former Marine Yells at Arab American Teens “I’ve Killed Your Kind” in Michigan Gas Station [Video]
A Michigan man, who claimed to be a former Marine, was caught on video allegedly telling a group of Arab American teenagers, "I've been in Fallujah; I've killed your motherf---ing kind."
A video of the incident has been circulating on social media in recent days. The alleged incident took place on March 27 at a gas station in Coldwater, Mich.
The Arab American News reports that the incident occurred after one of the teens placed money on top of the man's case of beer when attempting to pay for gas. The teens said that that was the only place they could place the money, and then didn't believe it would be an issue.
Ahmed Mohsen, one of the teens that was part of the group, rolled video of the man, and posted it to Facebook on March 27. Along with the video, Mohsen posted, "We didn't say anything to this 'Ex Marine' to start any of this. What kind of society do we live in, hopefully one day this kind of stuff won't exist."

Coldwater's Director of Public Safety Mark Bartell told Arab American News that he was aware of the incident, but that it had not been reported to police. He also said that they don't have enough information on the incident to determine whether or not a crime was committed. Though he did say that the man's actions could be considered assault, disorderly conduct, or ethnic bias.
