Note: Avoid Knox County
Teenager Robert Cantu says they were shouting ethnic slurs when it happened: They put a noose around his neck, tied the other end to a truck and dragged him around a parking lot. They threatened to hang him from a tree, he says, because he is Hispanic. This was last year.
The sentence in Knox County, Ohio, last week for one of the men (17 at the time of the incident, 18 now) who was convicted of “ethnic intimidation” was:
10 days in jail. A $100 fine.
