"One boy said... 'Let's do this, ' and then pushed him off the picnic table and hung him", Slattery said.

That night in Claremont, N.H., took a dark turn, the boy's family claims, when the teens started taunting the boy with racial epithets and throwing sticks and rocks at his legs. The boy was treated and released shortly after the August 28 event, and has returned to school in Claremont, N.H.

The boy swung from his neck three times before he was able to remove the rope, according to CBS News.

Theresa May wins second Brexit battle in parliament
John Woodcock, Labour MP representing Barrow and Furness, labelled the bill an "arrogant power grab" that could damage local jobs. Labour has said it will vote against the legislation, arguing so-called "Henry VIII" powers in the Bill amount to a "power-grab".


As late as Friday, Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase would not comment on the specifics of the case, only saying that they were still investigating and that those involved are juveniles, prohibiting him specifically making any comment. Without any internal injuries? "I think he had a guardian angel out there".

After the alleged incident, the boy was rushed to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where he was treated and released. This has, understandably, caused outrage among activists who feel that the perpetrators are being protected by police instead of punished for being so careless with the life of another person. He has since been released and has returned to school in Claremont.

"Hatred and bigotry will not be tolerated in New Hampshire", Sununu said.

"I nearly lost my grandson, I nearly lost him", Slattery told CBS.

The rally came as Republican Gov. Chris Sununu asked that the state attorney general's office help with an investigation into what happened in Claremont. "Tonight I was spot on", the uncle wrote in his Facebook post. The boy's family calls it a hate crime. Say what you want, but when the USA president defends avowed white supremacists, one can't be surprised when bullying takes on a decidedly racist tone as it did with an 8-year-old biracial boy who was hung from a tree in the year 2017. They say they hope this will be the beginning of a conversation about race relations in Claremont. The city of roughly 13,000 is almost 96 percent white, according to the 2010 census, and.6 percent black or African American.
