    A 13-year-old boy who police say was doused with gasoline and lit on fire last week while walking home from school is recovering from first-degree burns to his face and head.

    The boy was just two blocks from his home in Kansas City Tuesday when two teenagers began to follow him and then attacked him, his mother, Melissa Coon, said.

    Police have described the suspects as black 16-year-olds, while the victim is white.

    "We were told it's a hate crime," Coon told KTLA.

    "They rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open," Coon told KMBC. "(One of them) poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, 'This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.'"

    By lighting the gasoline, the second attacker "produced a large fireball burning the face and hair" of the boy, according to a Kansas City Police Department report obtained by KCTV.

    Disgusting. Give them the death penalty.

    (Reduced punishment simply because you weren't successful at your crime is retarded. Gifford's attempted assassin should get the chair as well.)

    Agreed, but thanks to our sissified Supreme Court, minors can't get the death penalty. Life in prison will have to suffice and they probably won't even get that.

    There will be no hate crime charges unless the authorities find some way of blaming the victim. These boys were just having fun. They are ENTITLED to have fun. They have a Constitutional right to have fun. Society has given permission for them to act like this. This is payback for slavery. They don't need prosecution, they need a new community rec center and midnight basketball.
