I read the following article, and wanted to comment ... I still detest FB ... it would not let me comment, without a FB account - what bullshit (sorry).
Most comments are, of course, are jumping on the racial bandwagon, because the driver of the truck was caucasian. Here is my comment about this story:
What a sad, tragic situation; he was the victim of a hate crime. It's too bad their mentality wasn't to help the man, help the boy. Instead, they chose to go 'vigilante' before even knowing the facts. As for it being a 'racial' issue, I know white boys who might have done the same thing, in a similar situation - just because they 'could', having nothing to do with the color of someone's skin. They may have just been 'looking for trouble', and that situation gave them a good excuse to beat on someone. I wish the accident victim and the hate crime victim speedy recoveries and well wishes to their families and loved ones!
