Two from Revere charged with attacking women speaking Spanish in East Boston

Two Revere women face felony charges for allegedly beating and kicking a mother and daughter whom they heard speaking Spanish in Maverick Square on Feb. 15.

Jenny Leigh Ennamorati, 25, was charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault and battery, two felony counts of violating another's constitutional rights with bodily injury and one felony count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon - her shod foot, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Stephanie Armstrong, 25, is charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault and battery and two felony counts of violation of another's consitutional rights with bodily injury, the DA's office says.

According to the DA's office:

The victims and witnesses each allege that without provocation Ennamorati and Armstrong began shouting at the mother and daughter and then physically attacked them because they were laughing and speaking to each other in Spanish. ...

Both mother and daughter sought medical treatment. Ennamorati and Armstrong told officers they had been drinking and were behaving belligerently.

Innocent, etc.

Has condemned the increase in hate crimes in Suffolk County. Where is the list of all these hate crimes ? Please release the names of all these bullies. I worry about poor Asians being targeted on the MBTA because of the coronavirus.

This is really weird. I live in East Boston and EVERYBODY speaks Spanish in Maverick Square. What were these idiots thinking? It's like somebody attacking two random fish in the ocean for swimming. As an English speaking East Boston resident I hope the assailants get the book thrown at them. There is no place for that kind of behavior.

Drunken xenophobic yahoos.

I mean, seriously - your name would not be pronounceable to many of your fellow thugglets and "ends in a vowel" used to be a slur slammed at people like you, and yet you attack someone for speaking Spanish. Talk about effing clueless.

They live in a town with a lot of Spanish speaking residents. Then they go to visit a town with a whole lot of Spanish speaking residents.

And somehow they're surprised and annoyed people are speaking Spanish?

Lies the reason why that alleged motive strains credulity. If the suspects were 50 years old, maybe. But 25? Hard to believe.

Have you seen white supremacists rallys? It's not all senior citizens, the Charlottesville one had lots of young people, including the guy who killed the woman with his car. He was 20. Trump rallys have some young people, even if it's mostly elderly. Why are you trying to deny this happened? Do you believe Newtown was staged and 9/11 was an inside job?

Why are you downplaying a hate crime but just calling it silly drunk actions? If a couple guys beat up a cop and yelled expletives about cops to him/her, would your response be the same "ah, drunken yahoos." It seems like conservatives always downplay crimes they kinda agree with...
