An Alabama teenager was critically injured in an attack that his mother is blaming on her son's support of law enforcement officials in the aftermath of police-involved shootings.

Brandi Allen is calling last Friday's assault of her 17-year-old son, Brian Ogle, a hate crime, an ABC affiliate reported.

"Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we're here," Allen told a Fox affiliate Sunday

"Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I'm still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being."

Allen charged her son took evidence of threats to him to the principal of Sylacauga High School "but she told him there was nothing she could do. I'm appalled," Fox's WBRC reported.

According to Allen, her son was targeted for posting pro-police comments on Facebook after some fellow students wore Black Lives Matter shirts to school. Police acknowledge racial tension may have played a part in the assault, but that they don't have any evidence the organization played a part in the attack, ABC 3340 reports.

"I want to see them in jail, this most certainly is a race issue, it's a hate crime," Allen charged, ABC3340 reported.
