(Kansas City, MO) In early March, just a few days after Trayvon Martin was shot, there was another potential hate crime that has received very little attention from the media.
It was a young 13 year old boy set on fire by two 16 year old teenagers in Kansas City, Missouri. The victim attends Kansas City’s East High School and believes the perpetrators do too.
According to KMBC, the boy’s mother said:
"They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open … (One of them) poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy’."
According to WIBW, the cops are still trying to find who did this as of March 27.
