If Cannon Hinnant was Killed by Police, People Wouldn’t Be Talking About It Anymore

Earlier this month, a 5-year-old boy named Cannon Hinnant was tragically murdered as he played outside in his yard .

Darius Sessoms, 25, is imagined to have walked over to the small boy, put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger as Cannon's older sisters watched in horror.

Cannon's death is every parent's nightmare and zip in need of a heart breaking tragedy.

Adding to the tragic nature of his death is that the incontrovertible fact that the media and partisans are using his death to push and make more divide.

This is irresponsible, disgusting, and speaks to the character of media and politics in 2020.

Below are a few of samples of how the media will twist information and use the colour of skin to enrage or manipulate their viewers.

In doing so with Cannon's death, the media has convoluted things such a lot that conservatives have carried it kind of torch as some sort of justification for police violence.

The disturbing part about this is often the very fact that had Cannon died at the hands of police, his story would have likely fallen out of the media cycle already.

One example of how the media uses race to divide the population are often seen within the screen grabs of two tweets from the Daily Beast below.

"A North Carolina man was arrested for allegedly shooting and killing a 5-year-old boy while he rode his bicycle," the Daily Beast wrote in reference to Cannon's murder.

The so-called conservative media did the precise same thing but with Cannon's death.

They are even as complicit in stoking racial divide because the ostensible left media.

"Say his name: Cannon Hinnant," read social media statuses across the country.

The right took to the media to use Cannon's death as a straw man and ask "Why aren't people protesting within the streets for justice for his death"?

While Cannon's death is certainly tragic and horrifying, it's yet to be an injustice because the man who is imagined to have killed him has been arrested and can likely get life in prison or be put to death.

This will not bring back Cannon, but this is often the justice system doing what it's alleged to do.

This is why people didn't take the streets to protest Cannon's death.

If the proper is so concerned with the death of youngsters , why then did they continue to be silent when Kameron Prescott was killed inside his home just before Christmas by police in Texas?

In December 2017, the deism Project reported on the tragic death of 6-year-old Kameron whose life was stolen from him when police opened fire on an unarmed woman suspected of stealing a car.

In June of 2018, the family of the small boy who was gunned down by police acknowledged that the cops who killed their son all went back to figure .

In March of last year, the family acknowledged that none of the officers liable for the death of her son would face charges.

Jeremy Mardis, another 6-year-old boy gunned down by police was also a grave injustice.

Coincidentally, when the Daily Beast covered the death of little Jeremy, they overlooked the complexion of these involved because it didn't fit their narrative.

Jeremy is white and Greenhouse is black in order that they couldn't exploit his death to stoke racial divide.

The media and government alike want this example to stay an equivalent .

The establishment wants us to be divided supported superficial traits like complexion .

As a result, and certain thanks to the very fact that racial divide couldn't be pushed within the deaths of Kameron and Jeremy, the protests around their tragic deaths were about non-existent.

In Anambra, three people were killed as they clashed with the police.

  Over the weekend, the situation in the Aguleri village, which is located in the Anambra East Local Government Area of the state of Anambra...
