    S.D. investigating death of Indian teen at school
    Tuesday, March 9, 2004

    The South Dakota Division of Criminal is investigating the death of an Indian teenager at a school where Indians have complained of discrimination.

    A spokesperson for the state attorney general's office said agents do not suspect foul play. But there are conflicting reports on how Khristopher J. Long Elk, 17, died last Thursday at the school in Faith, South Dakota.

    The American Civil Liberties Union is looking into the death, which could be a suicide. Long Elk's body was reportedly found hanging in the school yard.

    They NEED to suspect foul play.. hanging in the school yard does'nt sound like a typical suicide.. something more to it.
    Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

        Thats terrible. Now I bet if it was a white student hanged in the school yard, the whole town would be in an uproar. Its going to be interesting to find out who did this and what thier punishment should be.

        How awful for the family of that young boy:Cry :Cry
        yeah, yeah, yeah...

        ...never underestimate the power of stupid people in groups...

        If quizzes are "quizical"...What are tests?

          I hope the community really rallies around that family! This is such a sad time for them and for the whole community. Maybe the school will start to take these complaints more seriously, even if it doesn't have anything to do with race as far fetched a possiblity as that may be.

          :Cry :Cry :Cry
