It has been days since the death of a 5-year-old white child at the hands of a demented black neighbor and the media has remained stone cold silent on the execution.
On Sunday 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant was shot and killed execution style as he rode his tricycle in front of his own home, WTVD reported.
The suspect, who had been apprehended after a brief manhunt, Darius Nathaniel Sessoms, 25, is now facing a first-degree murder charge.
When officers arrived, they found 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant suffering from a gunshot wound. Officers and EMS immediately began performing lifesaving efforts.
Hinnant was taken to Wilson Medical Center where the child later died.
Wilson Police have identified the alleged shooter as Darius N. Sessoms, 25, of Wilson. Police announced just after 4:30 p.m. on Monday that he had been arrested and is in the custody of Wilson Police Department officers and members of the US Marshals’ Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force.
“Really everybody just wants answers as to why this was done. There will be justice,” Allan Wooten, his uncle, said to WSPA.
Hinnant’s family had been friends with the evil Sessoms for a long time and had interacted with him frequently prior to the murder.
“We used to play together and I never thought he’d kill someone. A mother now has to lay her son to rest at 5 years old which she should never have to do. He’ll never be forgotten,” Hinnant’s mother’s cousin, Rachel Pipkin, said.
Wilson Mayor Carlton Stevens visited the family to pay his respects and said that the tragedy shook him.
“I have a child that’s 5-years-old. My heart broke right then. I went home right then and I took my baby and just hugged her,” he said.
And some in the Black Lives Matter community have gone as far as to celebrate the murder of this child as revenge for the killings of black men.
One person who spoke on Facebook, who lives in the same town as the victim and the perpetrator, appeared to cheer the murder, Nationalist Review reported.
“Ion (I don’t) give a sh** he is white it’s time for revenge we tired shit over with now we shooting yall go cry to you moma,” belonging to a man named Terrell Kent, said.
After being a recipient of a torrent of hate mail Kent posted again to claim that it was his brother, not he, who made the abhorrent comment.
“For all y’all inboxing me and tagging me in shit that was not me who commented on that post or anything else I don’t even have a phone to post or even be on (Facebook).
“I work everyday and even when I did have a phone I never commented on anything like that and for all y’all who do know me know damn well I ain’t like that I got hella white friends,” he said.
“Ya’ll can clearly read the comments that tell you it won’t me and it was my brother on my page so y’all can stop ‘threating’ me
“And tbh I ain’t losing no sleep over this shit y’all just stressing my girl out with all this s**t so y’all can f**k off now,” he said.
And his was not the only comment that celebrated the death of the innocent 5-year-old child.
“Blew his little white privileged brains clean out of his head #BlackLivesMatter,” a person named Dante Salvador said on a post about the murder.
