A 'reclusive' teenager has become the youngest person prosecuted for inciting racial hatred by posting a video of the Ku Klux Klan hanging a black man online, a court heard.
The youngster, who 'lived in his bedroom' and cannot be named for legal reasons, set up an internet site on which he 'demonstrated how to stab a n*****'.

Just for clarification...was he present at this hanging or was it older footage that he just posted?
He was given a two-year conditional discharge by magistrates after admitting distributing 'threatening, abusive or insulting' material meaning to 'stir' racial hatred.
The teenager, who lives near Fakenham, Norfolk, is now 17 but was 15 when police found the website

But violence against a race, simply for being that race. Come on people. I know this kid was 15 but grow up already.
Agreed, whats confusing is that the alleged video shows a man (model) being hang and mutilated and yet that alone should have caused all alarm bells to go on
but yet they chose to stick to the quotes "how to stab a ....." . Im my humble opinion both the video alone and or the typed messaged hold equal weight.
So if this obviously disturbed child hadn't typed that message then i guess he everyone would have been okay with it all ?
