Mark Porter was indicted on hate crime charges after calling a 7-year-old boy the n-word and then electrocuting the child's father with a 'zap cane', a deadly weapon, according to Fox 13.

The indictment alleges that in November of 2016, Porter shouted racial slurs at an African-American man and his 7-year-old son after the man moved into a residence nearby. Porter then allegedly assaulted the adult.“…the defendant yelled ‘n—–,’ said get out of here to [Victim] and [Victim’s] seven-year-old son, and used a stun cane (a Zap Cane) to assault [Victim], resulting in bodily injury,” the indictment alleges.The Zap Cane is advertised as a cane that contains a stun gun capable of delivering “one million volts”. The indictment classifies the Zap Cane as a “dangerous weapon.”
