Have not seen anything about this before now. Almost zero national coverage. Google results show local coverage, NY Post, and Fox. Odd, I think this is a big story.

He executed a 5 year old. Can we get a protest for this? I’m sick of people murdering children. 2 dozen are murdered every year just in my city. It’s insane. No one protests child murders.

Just think if the races was the other way around – A 25 year old white man kills a 5 year old black boy?
The media would go *BREAKING* everywhere!
Five-year-old boy is shot dead by neighbor in front of his two sisters.
I read your tweet and looked at it from your POV. Now please look at it from mine. This little boy was gunned down in the street by a racist murderer. If a white dude walked up to a 5 year old black boy, shot him dead, would there be any news coverage other than the local media?

There should be national outrage about this. People should be marching in the streets but it won’t happen. It doesn’t fit any popular national narratives. At least our God is a God of justice. “5-year-old North Carolina boy allegedly shot dead by neighbor”
WHY DOESNT MEDIA COCVER THIS: 5 year old Cannon Hinnant was executed in cold blood on his bike. Accused killer is Darius Sessoms. He allegedly walked up to the boy and shot him dead in front of his sisters. Reverse the races and this is only thing anyone talks about for 6 months pic.twitter.com/r2rIg9ifm2

Please pause and say a prayer for 5-year-old Cannon Blake Hinnant’s family. He was shot dead execution-style by a neighbor while playing in the front yard. His siblings witnessed the murder. His funeral is Thursday.
The overwhelming majority of interracial crime is Black on White. Latest example: A 5 year old boy murdered execution style. His name was Cannon Hinnant.

We live in a country where a 5-year-old white kid can be gunned down execution style in front of his 7 & 8 year old sisters…
…but because the shooting was by a black man, every major media outlet refuses to cover the horror.
Because only BLM.

also apparently there’s a self claimed “purge” until 6 am and they’re just going around shooting whoever. A 5 year old has been shot, a man has been paralyzed, and 2 dead so far from what I hear.
