Teens attack, burn KC teen headed home from school
Kansas City Star ^ | 2/29/12 | Tony Rizzo

Posted on 02/29/2012 9:17:41 PM PST by One Name

Kansas City police are investigating an after-school assault during which a teenager was burned when one of his assailants ignited a can of gasoline. The 13-year-old victim told police that two older teens followed him from East High School on Tuesday afternoon to his house in the 2200 block of Quincy Avenue. As he was attempting to unlock the front door, one of the assailants grabbed him in a bear hug, he told police. The second suspect picked up a can of gasoline and said, “This is what you get,” according to police reports. The suspect pulled out a lighter, and when the boy tried to grab the can from the suspect, it dropped to the ground, spilling gasoline. The suspect then lit the gasoline, producing a “fireball,” according to the reports. The victim’s face was burned and his hair was singed. The suspects ran away.

I hate to say it but this sounds like the kid burned himself by accident.

Could be but he’s at Children’s Mercy and there is a reasonably good description of the perps and clothing they were wearing on the local news.

Yeah, and the "accident" would have happened anyway even if the two black guys hadn't shown up with the gasoline and a lighter. Right?

‘Two older black kids attacked a white boy...”

Thank goodness - I thought it was a hate crime.

How do you get that, the victim describes a bear hug and specifics of a gas can.

You’re assuming there were 2 black guys walking around with a can of gasoline and a lighter.

I lay some blame on the current sad state of TV and movies. Sure, there is violence in society. Always has been and always will. But, whether on TV or in society, violence in one arena feeds the other. I used to watch the dang thing a lot, but now, every time I even happen to glance at it while other household members have it on, it's just the same old crime, killing, maiming, shooting.

Another point to make about not being part of the TV scene now for a few years: The boiling lobster or frog or whatever animal, slowly but surely, is involved here. I have family members that seem to be immune now to the most awful crap. Okay. But, when someone like me walks by and gets a 5 second snippet of whatever was going on that moment, I believe I can better reflect on how much "the water temperature has increased" on the box. So, TV viewers just subtlety go deeper and deeper into the violence trance that it puts them into, where if one could just break that trance, you could see that the "temp is near the boiling point" of rape, suicide, killing, gore and blood.

This sounds self inflicted, with a bogus assault story as cover.

Are you assuming the gasoline and lighter were waiting on the victim's porch? I'm assuming what the article states, that the suspect picked up the can of gasoline and threatened the victim. The victim tried to knock the weapon, in this case a can of gasoline, away from the attacker. Then the attacker purposely lit the spilled gasoline.

Why do you take such issue with that?

It’s the current trend.

We have an ugly racial past- there were white-on-black lynchings in this region, including one in a nearby town in the 1920’s.

As whites have largely moved away from this past, aggrieved parties have ressurected it.

Ain’t no easy answers but it would be unwise to inflame the peacekeepers.

Now did you really think it was some Amish involved?

I think the kid burned himself and then made up the story about being burned by two black kids. I think that because the kid’s story sounds strange. 2 black kids he doesn’t know follow him home from school and then pick up a can of gasoline that just happens to be laying around and then pour it on him and tell him “This is what you get.”

Supposedly happened on his front doorstep coming home from school.

So you’re reacting to the racial element in the story?

They don’t use gasoline- kerosene for lamps, perhaps.

Hard to do much on the incendiary front when candlewax wicks are used.

I much prefer to watch the Topeka news versus Kansas City, because of what you describe.

Wish I was hundreds of miles from a big city, unfortunately I’m within a short gas tank.

Obviously true for several reasons - If two white boys (even if they were Amish) had attacked a black kid: - the races of all involved would have been published - there would be cries of hate crime - Jesse (the welfare pimp) Jackson, Al (I never turn down a bribe) Sharpton and Calipso (the mother ship is waiting)Louie would have been all over the TV demanding justice (but their silence in this case is deafening ... and telling).

I saw two men douse a cat with a flammable liquid from a gasoline can and set it on fire in Kansas City's Gillham Park, 20 years ago. That seemed strange to me; yet, there it was.

A buddy of mine is out with his wife one day and gets a phone call from their 13 year old son asking them to come come because he has been burned and needs their help. So, they head home and get the story...

Apparently, the dog has gotten hold of a cigarette lighter and is playing with it. So the son went to get it from the dog and somehow, the dog ignites the lighter, burning the boy, the carpet, and some scrap paper that was torn into strips.

Now my buddy is a pretty smart guy, and smells BS all the way with this lame ass story. So, he decides to check the Internet browsing history and happens to find YouTube videos showing how to do a few magic tricks involving, you guessed it, fire. The kid was punished.

But the best part came after. A couple of the other guys at work love using MS Paint to alter photos and poke fun at each other and our coworkers. So one of them had a pic of my buddy’s dog, took a pic of my lighter, and then laid the pic of the dog with the lighter in it’s mouth (this was Paint, not Photoshop, very poorly done) over the image of Drew Barrymore on the VHS cover of the movie Firestarter. We laughed at that kid for weeks, and the Frankenpic was their home computer desktop wallpaper for almost 2 weeks. To our knowledge, there has been no more playing with fire in the household since...

I had a cousin who when he was a kid was playing with matches and burned down the family garage. He tried to lie his way out of it but they had him dead-to-rights and he folded pretty quickly - particularly when the fire department had to show up to put out the fire.

Black on White hate crimes are all the rage in some cities these days. The left’s new and improved official diversity race hate doctrines kills the same as their previous race hate order did.

If the assailants had this in mind I’m sure they arranged for the can to be somewhere convenient.

The news media is certainly responsible for stoking racial tensions in their quest for sensationalism as part of the Bolsheviks’ “divide & conquer” strategy; just look at the imbalance in coverage between and alleged hate crime and the resulting discovery that it was a hoax. “Black leaders” are the most volatile fringe elements, chosen by the media to fan the flames; more mainstream representatives are ignored.

“Black on White hate crimes are all the rage in some cities these days.”

Here in NJ such crimes are unreported, but word of mouth has led the remaining whites (and many blacks) in suburban areas to avoid black areas altogether (despite those cities’ appeals to be a part of their “renaissance”).

You don’t need imaginary perps in order to place a thirteen year old boy alone with gasoline and a lighter. I call BS.

Looks to me like the boy saved his own life by knocking the can down.
