School system and police are investigating a Southington High School student in Connecticut because of a violently racist Snapchat video that spread on social media.
The teen uses the n-word, yells about lynching, challenges people to to fight him at his home and threatens to burn a cross in other people’s yards, notes the Record Journal. The teen claims he “hung 12 black men from a tree just this night.”
Lt. Stephen Elliott said police were made aware of a “social media message with racist content that was made by a juvenile who attends Southington High School.”
School Superintendent Timothy Connellan said the video contains “language implying the support of violence against people of color.”
