Does this crime sound "like a kid thing" to you?


O’Fallon police are investigating an allegedly unprovoked attack of a 15-year-old girl Sunday night. However, police believe it is an isolated incident. “This appears to be isolated,” said O’Fallon Police Sgt. Rob Schmidtke. “It sounds like a kid thing.”

O’Fallon business owner and resident Tim Petterson of Petterson Landscaping said his daughter Haley, a sophomore at O’Fallon Township High School (OTHS), was attacked by two girls near her mother’s home on West Adams Street in O’Fallon.

Petterson said Haley’s dog “Teddy” got loose around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night, and she was trying to retrieve the dog when two black girls approached her. “They said ‘This is our territory white girl,’” he said. “One grabbed her by the hair, and the other one started hitting her in the face.”

    You have to understand, Eric Holder issued a moratorium that black people -- especially kids -- cannot be arrested for a hate crime. Local police departments have to abide by it. They have to be careful how they phrase their words. You get fired if you say blacks attack whites due to racially hatred. Literally, it's against the law to mention it.

    even black people have to admit there is a double standard in reporting on "hate" crime these days.

    It does seem cliche though.

    You know, a vicious, racially motivated attack.
