teens accused of racial intimidation

In Saline, Michigan, three teens have been charged by police with ethnic intimidation for vandalizing two homes in the same subdivision, including one house where an ethnic slur was spray-painted on a driveway. And oh yeah, one of the families they targeted is Asian: Saline teens accused of racial intimidation, vandalism. Two 15-year-old boys and a 16-year-old boy were charged Monday with malicious destruction of property, larceny and ethnic intimidation for spray-painting the driveways and vehicles at two homes. The residents, who discovered a "painted ethnic slur" and other vandalism on their driveway, say "they believe their 14-year-old son, who is of Asian-Pacific American descent, was targeted by classmates at Saline High School." That's racist!
