Black on white hate crime in Columbus,Georgia.
Shequetta Powell
Court: Teen intended to post video of Carver High student's slapping on Facebook

According to court testimony, Shequetta L. Powell's plan was simple: slap a fellow Carver High School student, then put the video on Facebook.
Powell, 17, faced charges of battery and disorderly conduct during a Wednesday Recorder's Court hearing. She was arrested Tuesday for allegedly slapping a 14-year-old girl so hard it left the student with a black eye and swollen face.
Police said Powell decided to exact revenge for racial slurs the victim allegedly lobbied at her through Facebook. The 17-year-old suspect also told police the victim had been talking about her in class.
So, Powell asked a fellow classmate to record her slapping the girl. When the 14-year-old turned around, she briefly saw the recording device before she felt the strike, officers said.
Police were unable to find evidence of the Facebook confrontation. The victim claimed she had no prior dealings with Powell.
Judge Michael Cielinski gave Powell a $1,000 bond. Her charges were forwarded to Muscogee County Superior Court.
