What those young racist thugs did to this kid- Police Slow to Probe Biracial Boy's Hanging in New

There was a thread about this a few days ago - this was attempted murder. They MUST PAY for this.

http://www.newsweek.com/hanging-boy-biracial-8-years-old-black-white-new-hampshire-lynching-claremont-664415
<snip>
Over the past two weeks, the alleged hanging of an 8-year-old biracial boy has roiled the small, picturesque town of Claremont, New Hampshire. As a few hundred residents gathered in town for a prayer vigil organized by local clergy on Tuesday night, fresh allegations by the boy’s family further rocked this normally quiet area.

In an interview with Newsweek on Tuesday, the boy’s maternal grandmother, Lorrie Slattery, said local police did not begin seriously investigating the incident until images of the boy’s neck went viral on social media.

“Now they’re investigating,” said Slattery, 52, who is white. “On the day it happened, the police officer went around and spoke to the boy [believed to be the ringleader] and then came back to my daughter and said, ‘the child said it was an accident; there’s nothing we can do.' It was the media who opened their eyes and got them to do an investigation.”

-------------------------
The cops are just as racist.
This needs national condemnation

Bill Clinton being president didn't stop James Byrd or Matthew Shepard from being brutally murdered. Obama signing the hate crime law in their name didn't stop this trash from trying to kill this child by hanging. This isn't something that started with Trump. Hating others, whether they be of a different race, or religion, or gender or sexual orientation, that's been a part of humanity for as long as we've been a species.

35. What's there not to get?

The SPLC has tracked 867 Trump-related hate crimes since the election. Neo Nazis and white supremacists say they've been emboldened by what Trump is doing. Even children - CHILDREN - are quoting Trump to bully their classmates. And there have been over 200 reported incidents of that across the country. The hate would still exist under Hillary but not of this magnitude. Trump has amplified it from being almost non existent to being an every day in your face thing. The hate in this country is worse than its' ever been, and we have a president and a news network that has enforced this unfiltered hatred, and now white supremacists are saying that if they don't get a say they will cry free speech at the drop of a hat. It's not free speech - it's a hate crime.

That is what has been crossing my mind. Perhaps the thuggish cops didn't want to investigate because one of the kids belongs to someone on the FORCE???

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.

Have any of the names of the kids been released?

21. A child is physically and mentally wounded.

(snip from Newsweek)

Slattery said her grandson’s physical wounds are healing, but the impact of what happened is a lot for an 8-year-old boy to handle.

“Mentally, he’s not so well,” she said. “He does not want to believe that...[these boys] wanted to hurt him.”

----------

This, along with numerous other recent events, clearly tells me that as a nation, we still have a long way to go in dealing with racism. The parents of the kids that committed this crime should be held accountable.

57. More thoughts for you.

We may never hear the full results of this sad story because probably, all involved are juveniles; see link, below:

http://www.eagletimes.com/news/2017-09-12/Front_Page/Confidentiality_laws_at_the_center_of_juvenile_han.html

This child will have a slow, painful recovery - mainly emotionally and mentally, and will need tons of love. He may even need long-term therapy. There's a chance his folks can't afford it.

This occurred to me:
1. Being a small town, he will have problems returning to his school because most likely, those who harmed him go there.
2. Due to the confidentiality laws, the identity of the parents of the offenders may also remain hidden, therefore shielding them from public shame.

In my opinion, this event happened due to bad parenting of the offenders and the parents are the ones who should be held accountable. Those kids were probably just parroting what they hear at home, along with hearty doses of Trumpish garbage in the media.

33. The children who did this horrible crime

Need help, lot's of help. They have clearly been exposed to racial hatred, perhaps even been a victim themselves by peers or even family members. These are children. They need to have therapy by mental health experts. While their crime is shocking they are still children and we cannot condemn them to a life in prison without at least trying to help, to turn them around, to let them grow and have productive lives. There are five victims here and probably many more who have been affected in some way to this tragedy.

Sorry, I would love to go along with everyone but I just can't make these children pay for life what their adolescent minds have done.

Teenagers do what they think their slightly older peers would approve of. If white northern teens did this it is because they think white 20 somethings in their neighborhood would do.

So, what has Trump had to say?
