Attorney General: No Hate Crime Found In Claremont Rope Investigation

“There is no reliable evidence that any child used racist terminology in conjunction with the rope incident, and no reasonable inference to be made in that regard. Finally, there is no credible evidence that any of the children used the word ‘lynched’ or ‘lynching,’” the report reads. “The evidence does not, therefore, establish probable cause to warrant the belief that Boy 1 was motivated to assault the victim because the victim was biracial. In the absence of that quantum of evidence, the State could not sustain either a hate-crime prosecution or civil rights action against Boy 1.”
