A man is speaking out about why he attacked an alleged serial rapist in a Kansas City jail cell.
Antonio Collins was booked into the jail at police headquarters on Wednesday on charges of carrying a concealed weapon.
At first he didn’t recognize the man sharing a jail cell with him. He made small talk.
“I’m sitting over there looking at dude and asking him what he in her for. He acting like he don’t want to tell me. I said what are you in here for? He said just a little bit of nothing,” Collins recalls.

Collins says a television news report about an alleged serial rapist soon came on a nearby TV.
“I’m looking at the picture and I look down at him and he got this little eerie little smirk on his face like he’s happy about what’s going on the news, all the attention he’s getting, says Collins.
Collins believes rapists are the worst kind of criminals.
He says he got very angry. Collins covered up a camera pointed at the cell and started hitting Bernard Jackson.
“I made him scream just like he made them women scream, says Collins.
The guards broke up the fight.
Jackson was taken to the hospital with minor bruising to the right side of his face.
Collins says he has a couple of scratches on his neck.
According to the police report Jackson declined to press charges.
