25-årige Darius N. Sessoms – 5-årige Cannon Hinnant
En 25-årig mand likviderer naboens 5-årige dreng, i det der formentligt kunne være en grusom afslutning på en nabostridighed. Gerningsmanden er sort, og drengen hvid, og lige netop derfor ignoreres historien af de store amerikanske medier: New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, CNN’. White Lives (don’t) Matter.
Her historien beskrevet af WMBF News, et lokalt medie for ‘Myrtle Beach–Florence’, South Carolina – N.C. man wanted in fatal shooting of 5-year-old apprehended.
“A North Carolina man was in custody Monday night, about 24 hours after police said he shot and killed a 5-year-old boy. Darius N. Sessoms, 25, of Wilson was apprehended in Goldsboro by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force,…
Police were called to a shooting in a neighborhood in the 5100 block of Archers Road just after 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
Family members said Cannon Hinnant was playing outside his father’s house when he was shot in the head. The boy’s two sisters, ages 8 and 7, saw their brother get shot, according to Cannon’s mother. Cannon was taken to Wilson Medical Center, where he died.
… Doris Lybrand, who witnessed the shooting, said Sessoms ran up to Cannon, put the gun near his head and fired before running back to his own house.
‘My first reaction was he’s playing with the kids,’ Lybrand said. ‘For a second, I thought, ‘That couldn’t happen.’ People don’t run across the street and kill kids.’
She said she realized the gun was real when she saw Cannon’s father’s reaction to the shooting, and she quickly went inside her home, locked the door and tried to call 911.”
