Baton Rouge police arrested two teens Tuesday accused in the fatal Feb. 1 attack of a 55-year-old Indiana native, a crime that might have been committed simply because the teens wanted to see who hit harder.
John Bannon, 1654 Clear Lake Lane, Baton Rouge, died Friday of injuries sustained when he fell onto the concrete sidewalk during the attack, fractured his skull and suffered a brain hemorrhage, according to the arrest warrant for Windall Lavel Herring.
Bannons death leaves his family wondering why a man they described as a compassionate and caring individual was targeted.
You just want to know why, why him, said Susan Smith, Bannons sister, who resides in Nashville, Tenn. on Wednesday afternoon, choking back tears. Why him, of all people, (who) didnt bother anybody.
Police think the two teens, Herring, 19, and a 15-year-old whose name was not released, attacked Bannon in an attempted robbery, to see who could hit harder or possibly for another reason, police spokesman Cpl. LJean McKneely said.

The sister wants to know why her brother was targeted well is it because he was white?
It’s my guess that these teens were FATHERLESS, not a dad in sight. That is the BANE of the African-American community.
simply because the teens wanted to see who hit harder.
seesm i remember a sport form my youth called boxing.. that was set up on that very premise...
Hmmm, I wonder if HLN will have round the clock coverage of this case like they did the Dunn case..my spidey senses say NO, because the perps are black, doesn’t fit into their neat little agenda
Should’ve picked our own dam cotton!
Why him? Cuz he be a cracka.
Zombies strike again.
Zombies strike again.
Put em down like feral animals.
These maggots are destroying society.
I don’t know the color of the man they killed. That doesn’t matter to me. These two, including the 15 year old, need to be put down. And we don’t need to waste a lot of tax dollars doing it.
Holder needs to get off of his @$$ and get his “people” under control.
Obama wouldn’t want his son to play football. Too much time away from the knock-out game.
“Bannons death leaves his family wondering why a man they described as a compassionate and caring individual was targeted. “
Because he was white and unarmed.
Perhaps the victim was playing a Lawrence Welk album too loud.
Why should he? They are doing exactly as Holder wishes.
