Kids In ‘Hate’ Attack

Joe McGurk and Murray Weiss, New York Post, Oct. 4

Four middle-school students were arrested yesterday in what police described as a racially motivated robbery and attack—the latest in a spate of bias crimes that have inflamed a section of Brooklyn.

The youths—two 11-year-olds, a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old—are all black. They allegedly followed a 12-year-old white youth several blocks after the school they all attend was dismissed on Friday.

The four called the victim a “cracker” before beating him and stealing his cellphone on Veterans Avenue in Mill Basin, police said.

* Last week, a group of schoolgirls was arrested for taking part in a racially charged attack on two parochial-school students on a city bus.

The four—three blacks and a Hispanic—allegedly shouted racial slurs before punching one of the parochial students, who are white.

They followed them off the bus and punched the girl again, cops said.

* In March, six white Catholic-school girls were attacked on a basketball court by a group of teens who shouted “black power” and “white crackers,” according to the victims.
