CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) — Teenagers in New Hampshire taunted an 8-year-old biracial boy with racial slurs and then pushed him off of a picnic table with a rope around his neck, injuring him, the boy’s family said.

The child was treated at a hospital for cuts to his neck following the near-hanging Aug. 28 in Claremont, the boy’s grandmother, Lorrie Slattery, told the Valley News  He has since been released and has returned to school in Claremont.

Slattery said the children were in a backyard when some of the teens got on the table and grabbed a rope that held a tire swing. It’s not clear how the rope got around her grandson’s neck, but Slattery said the teens pushed him off the table. No adults are believed to have witnessed the incident.

An expert on abuse who spoke to the boy at the hospital said he swung from his neck three times before being able to remove the rope, Slattery said. None of the teens came to his aid, she said.

“One boy said … ‘Let’s do this,’ and then pushed him off the picnic table and hung him,” Slattery said.

Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase told the newspaper his department is investigating an Aug. 28 incident involving several juveniles. He declined to provide details and refused to confirm the case involved the 8-year-old boy.

Chase did not respond Monday to calls and emails from The Associated Press.

    Not surprising that the perps were white, contrary to what some others on this site may think. New Hampshire is not exactly a mecca for black people. As to where they learned this behavior, just take a look at what is happening in America. These kids are seeing people marching in the streets, proudly wearing kkk garb and waving Nazi flags, trying their best to preserve monuments to racism. Why wouldn’t they think it’s okay to hang a little 8 year old boy. He’s not 100% black, but close enough.

    • 100% correct D, he NEVER calls out the evil of his mentors, WHITE FOLKS. He’s a big ass LIAR just like his mentor #45, no wonder he’s a supporter because he’s THAT dude. The one that will say anything and people like him look for any crumbs he throws out to say “yep blacks can be racists, or yep no one holds blacks accountable for their crimes”, (which couldn’t be further from the truth, look at the news, EVERY DAMN DAY), without given it a second thought. But his kind are so eager to latch on to lies because they hate themselves. I despise self-hating black folks, they are a waste of atoms.

    Okay so I found an article that says the kids involved were white. Where is the article that says the kids were black? Fake Doc?
    I am interested to know the race of the perps was excluded in this BAW blog. Obviously from a few of the below comments, it matters.

    If these were black kids, there pictures and names would be plastered all over the internet. Since they are saying they are white, everything is hush hush.

  4. If that were my child, these young animals would have much more to worry about than facing charges. I’ve said it over and over again. We do our children a grave disservice when we caution them about the evils of whites and other races, but give them a false sense of safety when dealing with negroes. I for one, have never been treated as badly by any other race of people as I have been treated by people who look just like me. Which is why I don’t live my life based on race, but by the content of a person’s character. It’s so simple, yet…..

      It’s all over the web that these were white teenagers, so why this comment? Or did you just respond without doing a search as you typically do?

    I saw this story on a real news site that provides details and interviews. The perpetrators were black. They have an ingrained hate for light skinned “blacks” or biracial people. No surprise BAW left out that important
