A Winnipeg teen accused of a racist attack on a Jewish high school student is now stirring debate about the incident through his very public Facebook page.
But while police said it was still being determined whether the boy will be charged with hate crimes, the boy had a message of his own, a picture of himself on his Facebook page wearing a shirt with a slogan relating that he loves "haters."
And he's being lauded by others online for the alleged attack.
The incident happened after school on Nov. 18 in the hallways of the Charleswood-area school.
The girl was not physically hurt in the attack and has returned to school.
"The case has been forwarded on to the Department of Justice... and they'll be looking into that."
