It’s Friday and time for another example of Straaaaange cases! 

Like most of these, this  one is sad and senseless and, well, strange. It involves an 18-year-old student named Carter Strange who was brutally beaten in an alleged attack by a teenage gang.

Eight kids ranging in age from 13 to 18 were charged under South Carolina’s old lynching law for the vicious beating, which left Strange so badly injured he required facial reconstruction surgery.


Why?  They wanted his cell phone.  Sick.
