News One is reporting that the family of Mississippi hate-crime victim James Craig Anderson has filed suit against the seven white teenagers who are alleged to have set out to harass a black man on the night of Anderson's murder.
A defendant in the lawsuit, Deryl Dedmon, is charged with capital murder and robbery in the death of 49-year-old James Craig Anderson. Authorities say Dedmon intentionally ran over Anderson with a pickup truck in Jackson on June 26. The murder was captured on video  that went viral on the Internet.
Dedmon was scheduled for a preliminary hearing Tuesday on the criminal charges. Another defendant in the lawsuit, John Aaron Rice, is charged with assault.
The teen's attorneys say they were not involved in a racially motivated attack.
Yeah, the teens allegedly concocted the plan before leaving a party to seek out a black man to "harass" who actually ended up dead. After his murder, they allegedly reconvened and celebrated the incident in which they "weren't involved" at a local McDonald's, not at a police station, which is where someone who was not involved in the crime would be -- reporting it.
In the words of Cameo, this group of teens is talking out the side of their necks. You can trust and believe that if seven black teenagers had plotted to "harass" a white man who ended up murdered, they would all be charged with capital murder, especially in Mississippi. The fact that they aren't being criminally charged is ridiculous. Hopefully this suit will help Anderson's family get some type of justice, since the criminal-justice system has obviously failed them by declining to charge all involved in the senseless murder of their loved one.
