Police are investigating a race hate attack after a 13-year-old boy was doused in gasoline and set on fire. The teenager, who suffered first degree burns to his face and hands, is white and his two attackers black.I'm currently searching the web for pictures from the rally Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson had for this boy, and for the presidential statement issued by Obama. For some reason I'm having trouble finding them.
His mother, Melissa Coon, said the attackers told her son ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy’.
He noticed two older boys following him and as he arrived at his home the pair threw gas on him. ‘They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open,’ Mrs Coon told KMBC-TV.
‘[One of them] poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy‘.
