so if the black kid hangs a white doll what happens? Nothing. I wish it did go both ways, by it won't. You are labeled a racist if you deny the black kid the right to hang a white doll.

Wow, and he did it to intimidate a girl. He's got some cajones doesn't he. He should not only get punished, maybe they should take a look at his parents. That behavior is taught not aquired.

Gritty- you get your coffe yet? I'm going to bet the black kid that hangs a white doll would get punished as well.

While I agree this 'doll hanging' should be handled seriously and the boy should be punished accordingly, I think a felony charge is a bit strong.

As for the valleyfair beating ... no comparison -- nearly murdered the guy, in front of his child -- 8 on 1.

Damn right he deserved a felony. Honestly is there any way you can possibly justify what this kid did? In any way shape or form? Oh and some of you think that if a black BOY singled out one of the few white GIRLS in his school by hanging a doll from the rafters he wouldn't be punished or criticized? Are you serious?
