    I bet the 15 year old wasn’t white. If he was then it would be all over national news that “WHITE boy murdered native Indian 12 year old girl.”

    I feel so bad for this family, the officers that found her one of them my brother. This has nothing to do with race. There is sick people of all colors. It could be the way people are raised or just naturally in them to do such horrific things to another human being. Bless this little girl. I really hope that justice comes out of this!! Also for the family of the boy could you imagine your child doing this to someone. The pain they are enduring. Very sad for both sides.
