This is not likely one of the hate crimes that Eric Holder’s new Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee will look into because the color scheme — black on white — is all wrong. That hasn’t stopped Cleveland police from investigating a lead on a case that, like so many others nowadays, that materialized in a YouTube video that went viral.
19 Action News reports that the victim, 10-year-old Danielle Fair, is white, while her attacker, who has been identified but whose name is being withheld, is black. The video shows Fair riding her scooter down a Cleveland street when the second girl, who is 13, suddenly appears and begins beating her
The attack has all the earmarks of an ambush, with the camera rolling before the assailant shows up. This has prompted speculation that the incident may be the lastest — and youngest — “knockout” attack.
Police say they are viewing the assault as a hate crime based on eyewitness claims that the older girl used a racial slur.
“Cracker,” said neighbor Jessica Jaworski. “She called her a cracker.”
Reporters say they went to the home of the teen perpetrator but were met at the door by an unidentified woman who refused to comment, other than to say, “Nobody was waiting. I don’t have to talk to you. It’ll all come out in court.”
