Dear Friend of America's Survival,
Let's see if black anchorman Lester Holt of NBC News, always quick to highlight white-on-black violence, covers this story out of Maryland:
Teenage Brothers Fatally Attacked Man Who Refused to Give Them Money, Maryland Authorities Say
The killers were black. The white victim was 59-year-old John Weed from Mount Airy.
The Frederick County Sheriff's Office says they found a white male, identified as 59-year-old John Marvin Weed of Mount Airy, on the ground unconscious near the midway area of the fairgrounds. A helicopter transported Weed to a hospital, where he died late Saturday afternoon. Numerous witnesses told investigators two black male juveniles assaulted Weed in an unprovoked attack.
The parents of the suspects, who are brothers, spoke at the hearing on their behalf. The parents pleaded for their sons to be reunited and said they are both good boys who made a mistake. The boys have been identified as Governor Thomas Johnson High School students who play on the school’s basketball team in Frederick, Maryland.
Investigators said Weed was hit in the back of the head. He turned around and squared off with the 16-year-old. A short time later, the 15-year-old sucker-punched Weed, who fell to the ground unconscious. The 16-year-old then spit on him. Weed died the next day. Prosecutors said the 15-year-old could also face a charge of manslaughter and could be moved to adult court.
We shall see.
