Hate crime attack at park

A white member of the Aryan Brotherhood charged with beating a 76-year-old black fisherman in Baltimore's Fort Armistead Park on Tuesday is scheduled to have a bail review this morning, even as the city's police commissioner and mayor discuss the attack.

Court documents released this morning say the suspect, Calvin D. Lockner (left), a convicted sex offender and self-professed white supremacist, told police after his arrest, "I'm sorry, I did it. .... This wouldn't have happened if he was a white man."

The court documents say the 28-year-old suspect has a tattoo of Adolf Hitler on his stomach with the words "He Lives" underneath.

Lockner has been charged with attempted murder and numerous other counts. Police have classified the beating as a hate crime. The victim was in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center with head injuries. Police are searching for two other men who they said helped in the attack and yelled racial slurs as they kicked and punched the man in the face.
