The rope burns are bad enough. The fact that you can see tears running down both cheeks breaks my heart...
Terrible thing for that poor kid to go through. Thank god he survived. No innocent person should be treated like that.
Jesus. I hope that kid is okay :(
I remember when I was a teenager and I made the common mistake of trying to hang my black neighbors. We were just dumb kids, playing 'lynch,' we didn't mean nothing by it....
Jesus.... H.... Christ....
I live in New Hampshire, not too far from where this happened. Two things to know:
1. The police have done a pretty piss-poor job handling this. I believe the chief of police made a remark to the effect of "teenagers shouldn't have their lives ruined because of one mistake." Except hanging an eight year old kid isn't a mistake. Accidentally shitting your pants on a hot day is. Assaulting a child isn't.
2. Claremont itself is a shithole. There's not a lot of opportunities there, and as a result there's lots of drug use and all the stuff that comes with it. Opioids and meth are big problems in that area of the state.
Tl;dr Some teenagers tried to have a lynching in New Hampshire in 2017.
W.T.F. I was hoping this wasn't as horrible as the headline...and it was. WTF is wrong with people. Is it that difficult for parents to teach their effing kids to respect the lives of others?
Who the fuck raises these kids?
Seeing the tears roll down that child's face and those cuts fucking break my heart, man.
