What a ridiculous statement... children are charged as adults with regularity in heinous offenses. Thank goodness such offenses are not necessarily regular


I don't even know what they are charged with.

I have doubts that "attempted murder" is one of them.
It sounds much more like aggravated assault or attempted manslaughter.

If the kid died from this, I think it would be much closer to involuntary manslaughter.
The kids may have played in the backyard together regularly, and somehow that turned into a very reckless situation where negative forces led into this outcome.

They are small children, no one actually died, the circumstances as stated by the grandmother although ambiguous, do not indicate there was malice aforethought.

It is rare for a minor to be charged as an adult. Especially in a non murder case.

even if there was a little malice aforethought...
the oldest is 14 years old according to the story.
who knows what these kid's parents were like, maybe they were far, far, far alt right white separatists with enough explosives and weaponry in their basements to wage a civil war. who knows.... but shouldn't we find out what kind of influence they were under before we just throw them away? maybe with a different home life and some counseling, or even placing them in a juvenile detention center for awhile, they are redeemable...
but, if you throw these kids in an adult prison, you might as well give up on them because they will probably come out far worse than they went in.

umm.. the first decision will be weather they should be considered minors or adults..
I think they will be considered minors, at least I am kind of hoping they will be...
that will determine what process is taken thereafter. if they are minors, I think, more than likely social service and family courts will be involved. but I could be wrong.
they are a whole different bird than criminal courts.



I would tend to think this would be more in the juvi court domain side rather than criminal court. Not that I'm an expert. Many on this thread will be disappointed they won't be drawn and quartered and fed to the dogs. Probably won't even find out their names.

Did you just say attempted manslaughter? I think most 13-14 year old kids realize that hanging usually ends in death. If the facts come out and the story in the OP is accurate, yes, I hope they are charged as adults

ETA- cooler heads prevailed in an AZ case in which it was intended to charge an 8 year old as an adult in a double homicids

juvi court at least in my town is in with family court...
and I think by the time they actually get the to court, the kids will have time with mental health counselors, and social services will have made a few visits to the family home.

Wow how draining and what a headache.

Having to stand up to people I like and put my foot down on theirs, knowing that they may never respect or like me again, even knowingly absorbing their rage, is tough.

It was never easy but I used to be so much more capable of handling the stress involved with such a contentious and volatile situation. I've gone through all of these changes in the last few years and am definitely softer and much more sensitive now.

But one thing that will never change about me is that I am willing to make a point when it counts, even if it proves very costly to me personally.

Narco, whom I believe and feel like we've been friends for years (maybe not close best friends or anything, but definitely FRIENDS), got so frustrated that he said I must be part of the "club". And I know what club he means. I'm not stupid.

That hurts, not because someone called me something, but because I had to stand in his way and allow him to say whatever he needed to say to express that anger. And it is a person I truly love.

And I love them enough to allow them to be totally pissed at me if that's the cost of doing them right. I know he can't really hate me, because he's too great of a guy to actually hate anyone for more than 5 minutes, but that's also why I had to let him, in fact invite him to, direct it at me.

Same goes for most of you that argued here over this. Seagull, Silo, all of you. You have to know I Love you and that I consider you my friends. And damit, I'll say exactly what you need to hear even if it ensures you cannot even like me back. If you ever liked me at all it's because that's who I am and who I always will be. A real friend.

And you know that I don't hold it against you at all, and never will.
I just hope you won't feel the need to hold it against me either.
And that you understand why I'll get in your face and say NO.

It's because I do care, and because I do want what's best, and because I just can't allow you to darken your own hearts because our world is dark.

If you like me or not came 2nd to that.

Believe me, I don't walk away from here thinking I'm any better than any of you.
And it is very stressful.

But I will rest easy tonight, because I know I gave you the gift of my Spirit.
And in the end I know we'll all still be friends.
I'll always Love you guys/gals.

And I'm sorry I get so harsh sometimes and really stomp on your toes as hard as I can.
But we all need it, don't we?

I believe all young children can be saved.
Even the worst of them.

Or maybe , as normal in today's world , they spent no time with their children..
Why assume anything ?
Maybe they were watching a wild west movie on tv ? Who the hell knows ? I bet you dont.

Astonishing how some people are more outraged by a rapper making an artistic commentary on lynching in which nobody was hurt, than they are by this, where a real child was really lynched.

And then trying to make excuses for it.

And then being outraged when they get called 'racists' for it.

Just... astonishing. That we can't even all agree that kids getting lynched is a bad thing.

This isn't about Black or White, Red or Blue.

This is a about a gang of little thugs trying to kill another kid.

right, who knows.....
no one here really does, do they.
if the story was true as told, there was a race issue here because they were taunting this kid with racial insults first.
I just think that maybe someone, you know, someone actually involved in investigating this case find out why those racial insults led to lynching!! that's a far leap, once that most kids wouldn't even dream of crossing....

I see that they are still going on about the rapper.... that didn't really lynch the white boy....




I'm reacting from the point of view that this rapper is an idiot and is only perpetuating racism and racial issues.


kind of like having the kkk and white supremacist marching through the streets would do???




This is nothing more than liberals pushing their agenda that it's ok to harm or kill white people. I hope this rapper faces dire consequences for this video.



just how do you remove the minority community from a selected portion of land for a white homeland, or whatever they call it without inflicting some type of harm to them???




These celebrities are doing nothing to unite us. They are there to rip us farther apart.


meanwhile there seems to be a significant amount of people in this country that literally want to rip themselves away from the rest of us!!!

all those quotes are from just one page of that thread.. about an image on the screen of a tv or computer...
I couldn't even come close if I tried to count how many images of black boys, men, women, I've seen on tv images being lynched, maimed, whipped, raped, chained, beaten, murdered....

if one image on the screen of a little white boy is gonna cause division in this country, promote violence, or whatever else they are saying...
then I'm sorry but I am gonna point out how the rise of white separatism and groups like the kkk being emboldened enough to come out onto the streets with their torches, and having parents with these kinds of beliefs just may influence kids to act in violent ways against any minority kids that may cross their path!!!

So there is this thread, Rapper Lynches a White Child - and - Where Are Liberal Groups in Texas-Florida.feigning outrage yet no thread on this until now.

8-year-old biracial boy was hung from rope by N.H. teenagers because of his race, family says




It was around 5 p.m. on a Monday in late August, and an 8-year-old boy, like so many others that summer evening, was playing in a back yard. The others he was with had a few years on him — some were as old as 14 — and he had no reason to suspect that the picnic table or tire swing nearby would become tools for what his family alleges was a racially motivated near-hanging. That night in Claremont, N.H., took a dark turn, the boy’s family claims, when the teens started taunting the boy with racial epithets and throwing sticks and rocks at his legs. Family accounts of the incident reported by the Valley News allege the teens stood on top of the picnic table and grabbed a rope attached to a tire swing.



Now that s disgusting and was an actual hanging not a depiction by an actor. Also notice the terminology used when describing these boys..

An 8-year-old biracial boy's family claims a group of white teens attempted to hang him




Claremont authorities have said they are investigating the attack but did not comment on specific details of the case because it involves juveniles. "These people need to be protected," Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase said of the teenagers accused of hanging the boy. "Mistakes they make as a young child should not have to follow them for the rest of their life."


yet when conservative sites or police themselves describe young black teenagers, it is either thugs, menacing, young adult...etc.

Does anyone else see the double standard here? Also if using a child as a prop in a hanging was so awful...where are the outcries when it actually happened to one..all I see and here from that side is tumbleweeds rolling by and crickets. You know the side that is in no way connected or has ideals like the kkk...etc. Apparently this wasn't newsworthy to them because the only ones who ever bring this type of story up are people from the left. Show one thread where the right leaning members have brought up issues like this.


What I find interesting is that the OP is assuming the story is A) correct as it stand from no first hand account B) that the boy was hung by white kids, and C) that the thought has never crossed anyone's post in here that this biracial kid and the statements made could easily apply to blacks hating on a biracial kid as happens a lot within the black community towards lighter skinned blacks or biracial blacks.

There isn't anything that says the teens were white, so why jump to this conclusion?





I agree with your take on this story. there seems to be a lot of assuming in this story. Looking at the provided picture of this biracial boy, he looks to be a white kid not a black kid. So , that makes the rest of the story inaccurate , to me.

You'll be waiting forever because I am pretty consistent.

By the way, it's unclear what race the kids were in this story. It's ambiguous.

You should make less assumptions. You don't even know what race I am.

Until anti-white racism, the most common and socially accepted form of racism in US, is taken care of and talked about daily on the MSM, I could care less about cases like this.

It is funny how the MSM has been beating the drum about White supremacy and Nazism. These are not even an issue in the US.

You demonize people long enough and there will be consequences.

as far as weather or not the kids were white....




The boy’s grandmother, Lorrie Slattery, told Valley News, a New Hampshire newspaper, that he and others were playing in a yard in their neighborhood when the teenagers, who are white, started calling the boy racial epithets and throwing sticks and rocks at his legs.
