Police are appealing to the public to identify those behind this shocking picture.

The Hawks have launched an investigation into an image on Facebook in which a white man with a rifle poses over the apparently lifeless body of a black child - like a hunter celebrating his kill.


This is regardless of whether the picture is faked.

Instead of investigating photoshopped images why don't the police go after real-life racism, such as the flash mobs?

The authorities have suggested that everyone party to the posting - including those who have seen the picture - could face prosecution and, if convicted, a jail sentence.

This is regardless of whether the picture is faked.
Hurrah for our no common sense world.

Even if it is fake, it is pretty sick. Who ever made it must be messed up.

The white man pictured holding a rifle over the apparently lifeless body of a black child told police in 2007 that he paid the child to pose.

Which ever possibility it may be the purpose of it is to socially engineer Whites to think that only their race is causing the racism. Here's Jewish Racist masquerades to Blacks as KKK (http://www.theforbiddentruth.net/videos/1947/amazing-racist-jew-masquerades-blacks-kkk.html - broken link) another example.
