    I'm searching for an internet posting of a news story I watched last night.
    The story is about a fight between three Brooklyn youth, all of whom are Black and some (number unknown) white youth that took place on campus of Herkimer College. The white youth were reported to have used Lacrosse sticks and uttered profanity and racial slurs. Upon the police arriving, the three Black youth were arrested and taken into custody. Only one of the Black youth was released to attend a final exam. The three white boys were put up in a hotel "for their safety" and allowed to complete all their examinations.

    The bail for the boys is $30,000 /each, and of course the financial burder of legal representation will fall on their families. If anyone can find the news story, will you please post it on this thread?

    Buried this story

    Wow, I've followed up tonight, looking for the interview with the mothers, and other material, and there's not to much independent reporting on this. They are burying it from the press..

    you're welcome ;)
    they are definitely hiding the race issue as they story wasnt easy to find using that criteria. During the search I came across several other violent incidents, many race related - apparently this college caters to a pretty rough crowd and racial tensions are high there in general amongst staff and students.
