This beating took place minutes after midnight early Tuesday morning. The local news media sat on the story and did not begin to report it until Thursday. Due the 1,200 (close to sarc) cameras installed by the Merchants Association in the Five Points area in Columbia SC, the "group of people" that did the beating were clearly identifiable and they did not appear to be Amish. All eight are now in custody. No mention yet of this beating being classified as a "Hate Crime". Links to this story are already being dropped. This story is from Friday, I was not able to access the The State newspaper from Thursday.

It’s not a hate crime unless it’s a white on minority crime.

lets start a new trend....lets drop the once funny "Amish" references and just start using the real words....blacks...or African Americans, or whites, or Muslims...

we're getting caught up in the same silly language games that the SCM plays...

the fact that a group of African-American teens beat up a white teen. . . .

Shouldn't that be either "a group of African-American teens beat up a European-American teen" or "a group of black teens beat up a white teen"? These PC-American reporters should use parallel terms.

So which is it?
WLTX or thestate.com?
Either way, your links pretty much suck.
