    W. Seattle teen beaten bloody in possible hate crime

    SEATTLE - A 15-year-old boy from West Seattle says he was held hostage and beaten for hours, all because of the color of his skin. - W. Seattle teen beaten bloody in possible hate crime | KOMO News - Breaking News, Sports, Traffic and Weather - Seattle, Washington | News

    Some strange things about this story...

    The incident happened as Shane McClellan was walking home from a friend's house Tuesday around 2 a.m.

    Shane's father says two men called to Shane from the top of a staircase near the intersection of 14th Avenue SW and SW Holden Street. The men asked for a light, and when Shane walked over to oblige, they knocked him to the ground and started kicking him.


    The boy was 15 and walking home at 2:00am???? From a friends house. What is a 15 year old doing out at 2:00am????

    Two guys call from a staircase at 2:00am asking for a light, and he goes to give them one???

    I don't know, something very fishy about this story.

    If this is true, then it's a damn shame, but as I said something aint right.

    By the looks of his face and body this wasn't self induced as the infamous case of the backward "B" on the McCain supporter who said a black man did it.

    Good question as to why he was out at 2AM. If real then he learned a lesson that at 2AM and two guys asks if you got a lighter you best just keep on walking.

    Re: W. Seattle teen beaten bloody in possible hate crime

    My heart goes out to the kid, but his decisions are very questionable. I mean if he feels comfortable enough walking around Seattle at 2 in the morning he should know the places where he shouldn't be. After reading the article and some of the comments it seems like West Seattle was one of those places. And I don't know he his brain stopped working for the minute he went to give them a lighter, but you NEVER do that by yourself just in case something like this happens. I hope the kid makes a full recovery soon and they find the guys that did this to him. Then, hopefully the story will make more sense, because I agree with you as of now it seems questionable.

    If this was a Black kid who was beaten by whites because of the color of his skin would you have the same doubts? Racist come in all colors and its ugly. I hope they catch these guys. btw you are right, something does seem fishy.

    I sure hope so, because no matter what the skin colors of the people involved, it doesn't quite add up.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I dunno. I guess that was an expensive lesson.

    I have a 14yo. At 2AM he'd better be in the bed. If he's at a friend's house he'd better be in bed. If he got his ass kicked while walking the street at 2AM, once I got over my initial reaction I'd be tempted to tell him he asked for it by doing something so darn stupid!

    As for the racial aspect, I didn't click on the story yet so I have no idea whether the boy is white, black, native, asian, hispanic or Martian. If it was racially motivated that's bad... but it could just as easily have been motivated by opportunism (he was there), they didn't like his clothes, they mistook him for someone else, that's "their" neighborhood and he isn't a local, money, or whatever. Whatever the motive, getting beaten to a pulp is no fun. I hope they catch the perps, but I hope the kid learned a lesson from this: don't approach strangers after dark and don't be walking home at 2AM!


    Edited to add: Okay, I read the story and see what he was saying about it being racially motivated. I don't know. If the boy has whip marks on his back, cigarette burns on the back of his neck... that sounds like it might have happened like he said. If those injuried were somehow self-inflicted I think it would be somewhat obvious from the angles of the marks and we'd be reading a very different story. We'll see.

    What does a 15 year old walking around at 2:00am have to do with race? I did not mention race or anything even close. The circumstance of the attack, not anyones race struck me as fishy.

    I think you are projecting as I made no mention of race in any reguard.

    So it was 2:00am on a school night. 15 year old on the streets. Two guys from a shady part of town call you over for a light. No way, something is wrong here.

    Makes no sense to me.

    Why is a 15yo carrying a lighter around in the city? Not to start campfires.

    What does he smoke, cigarettes weed or crack?

    Inquiring minds want to know.


    Actually I'm suspicious that it was a drug-buy gone bad.

    Yep, my thoughts exactly.

    It sucks to have been a cop. It makes me very suspicious of this kind of thing.

    You didnt do much when you were a kid, didja?

    2am was nothing when I was fifteen. A good night would end with me slipping back into my bedroom about the time I had to get up for school then making a face melter when I got to school to survive the day.

    Ahhhh juvenile delinquency, those were the days
