Mother of teen who claims set on fire says 'we're being brushed off'

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The mother of a 13-year-old boy who says he was set on fire by two teens said Monday that her son is having a difficult time after he suffered first-degree burns.

"It's hard for him," the boy's mother told KCTV5 Monday. "It's hard for us as a family having to deal with this."

Other media outlets have identified the boy's mother. KCTV5 is not doing so because the boy is a minor and no one has been charged.

Part of the police investigation has included attempting to verify the veracity of the boy's claims.

This prompted the boy's mother earlier this month to complain that police were treating her son as a suspect.

"It's very frustrating because I feel like we're being brushed off and there's nothing that is happening for us," the mother said Monday.

But in a news conference held last month, detectives said what the boy experienced was a particularly heinous crime.

The case drew national attention last month because the boy is white and he said the two teen boys who set him on fire were African-Americans.

Kansas City Police Sgt. Stacey Graves said Monday that the investigation is ongoing.

First degree burns. No witnesses. I find the kids story to be most likely a fabrication. If he’d been doused with say a cup of gasoline, getting clothing wet, then lit afire, the injuries would be much worse than 1st degree burns.

That's so much for posting this Black on White hate crime.

I've been thinking of this ever since the "No_Limit_Nigga" manufactured controversy.

Zimmerman was in a fight for his life with that gansta punk.

Being doused with gasoline and set on fire would likely have a different burn pattern than someone playing with matches near gasoline.

Which burns does the kid have?

That’s because while they have the correct last name, they do not have the requisite amount of melanin.

Correct me please but aren’t first degree burns about like a medium bad sunburn?

Yes, that does appear to be what Big Media wants you to believe....

Trust the reporter, too?

They are being brushed off because the perps would look Obama’s son if he had one.

1st degree burns? What did they do push the kid out in the Sun? ;-)

IIRC, the police report said that the gas was poured more on the floor around the kid than on the kid because of the struggle. The thugs lit up the gas on the floor. Either the floor was on fire and set his shirt on fire or some of the gas ended up on his shirt.....but he was able to pull the shirt over his head thereby snuffing the fire and protecting his skin. I also believe he had second degree burns up his nose.

Even so, his mother claims he has nightmares and she finds him lying on the floor crying, curled up in a ball, on a regular basis.

I was skeptical too, until I read the linked story on what this kid, and a bunch of other white kids, have to endure at the school. Dear lord, if half of this is true, you will fully understand why what this kid said happened absolutely could have happened. No kids should have to deal with what these kids are going through. If the races were reversed, this school would be under siege by the race whores and the entire administration would be in jail.

Was Boy in K.C. Fire Attack Burned by His School’s Racist Teaching?

Then the story line should change, so it doesn't appear to create the impression the kid was doused with fuel then lit. "Tried to douse" maybe, and "lit fuel that spilled on the floor."

I'd also emphasize the racially-charged taunts.

I agree with you, there is a serious double standard here, and pressure is building, and one day it is going to blow. The fact that whitey is "taking it quietly" is a sign of danger, not a sign of safety.

First degree burns are nothing worse than sunburn. Fourth degree are the worst:

The kid’s the wrong color/nationality to get much sympathy from the police or media.

I bet the prez would say that the two thugs who set the kid on fire remind him of the son’s he never had.

Does it really matter whether or not the feral black kids who did this doused him directly or tried to douse him? The fact is they tried to burn him to death for being white. And after the crap he had to put up with at school, I don't see how anyone could doubt his story. But, alas, his mom appears to be a single mom without much in the way of resources, so I don't expect the authorities to give her much thought. Too bad the practitioners of race aren't available at this time to help her.

-- Does it really matter whether or not the feral black kids who did this doused him directly or tried to douse him? --

Just as a matter of creating and sustaining credibility. A person who sensationalizes an incident runs the risk of being blown off.

-- his mom appears to be a single mom without much in the way of resources, so I don't expect the authorities to give her much thought. --

The authorities triage the cases that come before them, mostly on the basis of physical damages. Homicides have priority over rapes, and rapes over beatings, and beatings over burglaries, etc.

-- Too bad the practitioners of race aren't available at this time to help her. --

The practitioners of race are a pack of one-sided, double-standard driven charlatans. I hope their mobs turn on them one day.

Proper investigation and prosecution of this case would disparage Holder’s people, and that’s not likely to happen with the negro nazi party in power.

It’s like Germany in the 30s, with the races switched around.
