White Terrorists Attack + Attempt To Hang An 8-Year-Old Biracial Boy
The boy’s grandmother said the attack was “racially motivated.”
On Sunday, Sept. 10, The Root’s Angela Helm reported an attempt by a group of white terrorist teens to hang and murder an 8-year-old bi-racial boy in Claremont, New Hampshire.
Police have refused to release information about the victim and the assailants, but in a photograph of the 8-year-old the damage from the noose is apparent. The boy’s grandmother said that the white juvenile delinquents were “racially motivated” in their attack on her grandson.
The child was flown by medevac to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center where his mother, Cassandra Merlin, posted the image to her Facebook page. “My son is being flown to Dartmouth after a 14-year-old kid decided to hang him from a tree. I don’t care if this was a so-called accident or not,” she wrote. “My son almost died because of some little sh*t teenage kids.”
The investigation into the incident, which took place on Aug. 28, will not be commented on further in the public, according to Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase, because the “perpetrators” are juveniles. “These people need to be protected,” Chase said about the juvenile’s behavior. “Mistakes they made as a young child should not have to follow them for the rest of their life.”
The continuing infantilization of white teens is a trend that attempts to create sympathy where logic should be applied. “Teens like Trayvon Martin are made out to be hulking, menacing adults,” Helm wrote in her report. “Chief Chase seems to be centering the perpetrators’ feelings and futures, all but forgetting about the trauma of a little boy who had his so-called friends hang him from a tree to the point where he had to be medevaced to a hospital.”
According to the child’s grandmother, the boy was playing with the teenagers when they began to throw rocks, sticks and racial epithets at him. Someone then stood on a picnic table, wrapped a rope from a nearby tire swing around the boy’s throat and then kicked him off the table. As the boy swung back and forth on the tree, he was able to free himself.
None of the teenage terrorists came to his aid.
