Usually deemed as a crime that is rarely reported or displayed on media outlets, the beating of a white teenage is under investigation of being racially motivated.
Shane McClellan, 16, was walking home in the early hours of Tuesday when he was approached by a Black and Asian man.
According to his father, Tim McClellan, they initially asked him for a light, but then proceeded to maliciously attack him and even threatened him with a gun.
Adding insult to injury, the two men allegedly took cigarette butts and burned the back of his neck.
When asked about the attack, Shane stated that he was singled out solely because that was what his ancestors did to theirs.
