That's the only way to describe this case from Australia. The body of an Aboriginal boy was found in a Northern Territory waterhole. He had head injuries and had been weighted down with rocks. Two sets of footprints led to the waterhole, but only one led away. Faced with this evidence, the police concluded that the death was accidental.

I think it would be fair to say that they wouldn't have reached that conclusion if the victim was white. But nobody cares about a dead Aborigine kid - especially not the Australian police.
