A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
The Oregon school board
met Tuesday for the first time after Board President PJ Kapfhammer was charged
with two misdemeanors.
Many community members
were present at the meeting, most in support of Kapfhammer, and upset that the
ordeal has come so far.
About two weeks ago,
Kapfhammer confronted a man with autism at the Clay High School weight room.
Kapfhammer said he did not know the man was an honorary manager of the baseball
team, so he approached him and asked who he was.
The young man's mother
said witnesses told her the confrontation became vulgar, and she wants justice
for her son.
Kapfhammer has since been
charged with disorderly conduct and menacing, but many of those who spoke out
at the meeting said they've known Kapfhammer for years, and don't believe he
would ever intentionally hurt a person with developmental disabilities, and
they believe he did the right thing.
"Someone's back in your
office…they're not allowed there," said resident Joe Gray. "Now everyone that
[questions them] gets charges pressed on them?"
Kapfhammer also made a
short statement at the meeting. He said this has been the hardest two weeks of
his life and he is sorry for all the pain he has caused.
