The National NAACP has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate a shooting of two black children in Caswell County, NC by a 52-year-old white man, charging that the shooting was probably racially motivated. NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous declared in a statement that "it is appalling that these small children may have suffered serious physical and psychological harm because of the violent inhumanity of this kind of racial intolerance.”Agreeing with the NAACP request, the Justice Department is now investigating the case. The NAACP believes the man who shot the children on Labor Day weekend, John Fuqua, should be charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. The president of the North Carolina NAACP, Rev. William Barber, says local law enforcement had led a flawed investigation from the beginning. Fuqua's bond was originally set at $5,000, which he made immediately and was released. The Caswell County Chapter of the NAACP has been especially vigilant about this case, holding numerous community meetings and press conferences. The community remains upset. One child was hit in the face and the other was hit in the arm. Neighbors said they heard Fuqua yell racial slurs before the incident happened.
