    Dood...why would he (the reported owner of very nice shoes) steal sneakers 2 sizes too small, and what would he have done with his shoes?

    This is definitely suspicious, as are some other things.

    However, it could mean he was robbed by someone creative. Or it could mean that he ran afoul of some guy because of his ex (?) girlfriend. Maybe it was him trying to get with some other woman.

    Honestly the last thing I think it was was a real "lynching". It could have simply been a murder. Or it could have still been a suicide, but he could have had help. There does need to be a real investigation conducted but it needs to be done without basing it on the assumption that this involved some group or was a lynching from the getgo.

    Can you link to proof of this. From what I've been reading, age of consent is 16, with no qualifiers for age gaps. The only things restricted when it comes to consent are based on other factors, such as teacher, guardian, parent, etc.

    According to wikipedia, there is a gap exception for 13, 14, and 15 year olds, but it is six years.

    Every state varies. In some states it is as early as 13 (with the provision that the other party be older and within 4 years). Others, it is 16 with the consent extending to people 9 years older or less. (example- a 16 year old can consent to relationship with a 25 year old but not a 26 year old)

    I may be wrong with NC. The table shows the age of consent with the max year differential of 4 years but I may be reading that incorrectly.

    The local authorities were interviewed for the stories, because there are statements attributed to them, but nothing related to "discrepancies" in belt ownership or shoe size. If there was anything to the claims, don't you think the multiple reporters would have actually asked, on record, for an official response?
    That is my point. How can the family know about something that has disappeared and that is not in the police reports?

    It's actually better explained further down on that page. That table is really horrible at properly explaining these laws.

    In North Carolina, the age of consent is 16. Sexual intercourse with someone who is under the age of consent is only illegal if the defendant is: (1) at least 4 years older than the victim and (2) at least 12 years of age (the age at which the defendant can be prosecuted).

    And I quoted the CNN article. The subject of this thread even says she says it was a lynching. So that contradicts your claim that she hasn't said a crime was committed. She most certainly has. And she may be right, but stop saying she never said a crime was committed.

    I'm not sure what is odd about discussing this - the situation is extremely unusual, with as you admit lots of very curious, unanswered questions. And I'm not surprised you'd look forward to more thread like it since you've participated in this one and not many others you could have chosen this morning. Something about it draws your attention like the rest of us.
    So we're supposed to participate in every thread on the board or it's something noteworthy? Please.

    My attention was drawn the other day to the thread title. And this one is interesting to you and others because you're already convinced there was a racial motivation here. That's also why the NAACP is involved. The OP tried to deny there was any racial aspects to this story. And we all know that's bull****.
