Roseville area high school students accused of hate crime


ROSEVILLE (AP) - A group of Roseville area high school students is suspected of a hate crime after they allegedly spread cotton balls on the front lawn of an African-American classmate's home.

The Sacramento Bee reported Friday that 13 students at Oakmont High School have been referred to juvenile court for last month's incident. The newspaper says cotton balls used this way evoke images of slavery, upsetting the student's family.

Roseville police spokesperson Dee Dee Gunther said the students each face a misdemeanor charge.

Brad Basham of the Roseville Joint Union High School District said the school is planning community meetings to discuss racial issues.

Oakmont junior Nicole Herrera, who wasn't among the 13 students, said it was a joke and not meant to be racist.

Family hopes to raise awareness during holiday about spice after son's death


ID=20672921

On the 4th of July, 19-year-old Connor Eckhardt was at the beach with his parents and two sisters. Ten days later, Connor was brain dead and about to be taken off life support.

His sudden death was caused by one hit off a spice cigarette.

Spice and K2 are just different names for synthetic marijuana, which is made up of ground cannabis that is laced with chemicals -- those chemicals can be deadly. And the deadly drug is easily available at convenience stores and gas stations.
