A student reportedly took a photo of a victim on November 14 at a high school in Naperville in which both attend.
In a photo headline, he said the point of sale was Naperville, a suburb of Chicago. The investigation found that the juvenile advertisement was published along with another unidentified offensive language. Police said.
“The charges against juveniles in this case are worrying,” DuPage County Attorney Robert B. Berlin said. “Hate crimes have no place in our society and will not be tolerated in DuPage. Everyone, regardless of age, accused of these shameful acts will be accused accordingly. ”
Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall described the incident as despicable and offensive. ,
“Every individual deserves the right to feel safe and welcomed in our community, and this department will continue to make this a reality by thoroughly investigating any allegations of hate crime and the status of those responsible for justice. . ”
Naperville's latest racist incident in a few weeks
"The moment he started teasing my son, he called a fool of him, made fun of his skin color, and said that last October he said," shut the slave ", they're not friends anymore," she said.
Just last month, Naperville published national news following the release of workers from the local Buffalo Wild Wings when they asked a group of mostly African-American people to change the charts because of skin color. The family said the host told them to move to another table because one of the regular customers of the restaurant did not want black people to sit nearby.
The police chief said the incidents were unrelated.
The suspect appeared in a juvenile court on Wednesday and his future court speech is December 18.
Naperville is about 35 miles from Chicago.
