Greece, NY Police dept. mugshot
The three Greece, NY teens who made a racist bullying video, in which they also mock a young girl who, along with her sister, was murdered by her father last year, have been identified as Amanda Farabella and her boyfriend Shawn Petrilli, both of 100 Whitman Rd. in Greece, and Farabella's half brother, Nick Robare.
The video, which features the three teens, begins with Petrilli looking into the camera and saying "Hope you like your fucking hoodie you nigger."
The green DC hoodie is something that Noel Parcells, gave to her best friend, Alex Hare, before she died.
On September 5, 2011, 10 year old Noel Parcells and her 3 year old half sister Mia were killed by Noel's father in a murder-suicide in Lake George, NY.
In the video, Petrilli is referring to Alex, who is African-American.
Apparently, the youths got a hold of the hoodie and decided to make a video of them burning it in what is a clear case of bullying.
The video, which can be seen below, seems to have been posted on Youtube by someone who is outraged, and wants to bring attention to what is going on in Greece, NY, then shows the hoodie burning, as Petrilli, Farabella and Robare are heard laughing and saying more racial slurs as well as mocking Noel Parcells.
At one point in the video, one of the teens lights a cigarette on the burning hoodie, while another says he is going to "piss" on the burning hoodie.
It's interesting that the video takes place in Greece, NY, as the town recently made international news when a video of students bullying Karen Klein, a 68 year old School bus monitor surfaced on Youtube.
Even more interesting is that one of the students
who bullied the bus monitor, has a stepfather who
is a Greece, NY Police officer.

where the Racist Bullying video was made.
Alex's mom, Michelle Hare, repeatedly tried to get the Greece, NY Police department to do something, but they refused, telling her that nothing in the video rises to the level of any criminal charges, despite the teens threatening Alex on the video.
After I contacted Greece, NY Police department
and spoke with Sgt. Waye asking him why no one
had been charged in this incident, the GPD decided to charge Nick Robare with
aggravated harassment for posting
the video on Alex Hare's
It is obvious that before I broke the story here
on my blog, and before I called Sgt. Waye, the
Greece, NY Police department had no intention
of charging anyone, until the story started to get
publicity here on my blog.
On Friday November 30, 2012 I broke this story of the Racist Bullying video, right here on my blog.
I reached out to ALL Rochester news media outlets and NONE of them were interested.
I kept writing about it, and updating it, and continued to push it on the internet.
Then, on Monday November 10, 2012 Rochester, NY news media outlets, finally decided
to cover it.
As a community activist, writer and blogger, it feels good to have been the first to break this story.
I'd like to thank all my supporters and everyone who has reached out to me... Thank You!
