A group of five minority teens set a teenage white boy on fire and laughed about it. None the stories seem to say this, they don`t mention either the color of the victim, pictured on the left, or of the attackers, two of who, Jesus Mendez and Steven Shelton, are pictured on the right.

911 calls reveal teen`s agony in moments after fire attack The Miami Herald

By Jennifer Lebovich

Within minutes of being burned over much of his body, Michael Brewer wailed in agony as onlookers tried to help the 15-year-old, according to 911 tapes released Friday.

``Please, please, please,`` the boy screamed and cried.

``Please help me,`` he repeated.

The Broward Sheriff`s Office released the series of calls in connection with Monday`s attack by a group of five teenage classmates in Deerfield Beach. The teens, say police, set Brewer on fire after dousing him with rubbing alcohol, and have been charged in the attack. The boy remains in intensive care and doctors say it will take months for him to recover.
The picture above is actually a screen capture from a video (available at the Miami Herald link) of two of the teenagers in court, since none of the stories seem to think it worthwhile to publish their photos.
