Three White Kids Choking A Black Kid With A Noose For Dating White Girl

What year is this, again? Three white teens allegedly wrapped a noose around a black kid’s neck twice and tried to choke him, while threatening to kill him with switch blade, and calling hip the n-word while holding him hostage against his will.  The three white teens will be charged with hate crimes because of the racial nature of the crimes against 17 year old Joshua Merritt. The parents of the youngest white teen called the allegations lies, although their son’s friend admitted to school officials that the noose incident was just horseplay. The oldest of the white teens is 18 year-old Matthew Hermann (pictured to the left), who will be charged as an adult for unlawful restraint (felony), hate crime (felony), and misdemeanor battery.

He walks over to me, with the noose in his hand, he comes puts the noose around my neck and he begins to tighten the noose, almost strangled me to the ground.

What would make three white teens do something so awful to another kid? A girl! It seems the victim, a black teen named Joshua Merritt, was becoming too friendly with one of the boys’ cousin. Details of the incident when you continue…

I blame the parents! Obviously they are in denial because the kids admitted that it was a prank, while the parents are calling the black kid a liar. People these days have a strange sense of humor:

The incident took place Dec. 23 around 10:20 p.m. at the home of one of the alleged attackers, located in the 1600 block of West 100th Place in the city’s Beverly neighborhood on the Southwest Side, the Chicago Tribune reports.

According to Fox Chicago, the suspects, aged between 16 and 18 years old and students at Brother Rice High School, put a noose around the victim’s neck twice and held him captive in the home. They allegedly threatened to kill the victim, also a Brother Rice student, using racial epithets repeatedly and pulling out a switchblade at one point during the attack.

When he was finally able to leave the house, the victim claims one of his alleged attackers jumped him from behind with a knife and threatened to kill him again, Fox reports.

According to ABC Chicago, the teens were angry because the victim had a relationship with is one of their cousins.

Matthew Hermann, 18, of Alsip, was charged with unlawful restraint and a hate crime, both felonies, as well as misdemeanor battery, the Tribune reports. The two other alleged attackers, aged 16 and 17, are facing the same charges in juvenile court, while the 16-year-old was also charged with aggravated assault with a weapon. {White Teens Use Noose On Black Teen}

I feel for Matthew Herman if he has to go to jail, he better join the “brother hood” or something for protection. I’m not going to get all heated and outrage until more of the facts come out. SMH!
