DETROIT (WKZO) -- Civil rights leader Reverend Jesse Jackson has condemned the April 2nd beating of a Clinton Township motorist in Detroit.

Monday, Jackson denounced the beating of Steven Utash and said those who attacked the tree trimmer were likely driven by "hatred," "alienation" and "desperation." The reverend reportedly received some criticism on social media for not responding to the incident sooner, however he says he was in Japan when the attack occurred.

Utash was severely beaten after getting out of his vehicle to check on a ten-year-old boy who he struck after the child darted in front of his vehicle.
