Baton Rouge police arrest two teens in beating death

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.

Bannon’s 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, Bannon’s sister, who resides in Nashville, Tenn. on Wednesday afternoon, choking back tears. “Why him, of all people, (who) didn’t 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. L’Jean 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.

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

I like this part. We all know what other reason there could be:

Beat whitey, polar-bear hunting, the knockout game, doing service for “the rev” Jesse or “the rev” Al...

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.

Yep, if it’s blacks beating whites or that idiot white guy that attacked that poor old black gentleman, they all need to do 10-20.

And if they get shot while in the process of these games, I won’t feel sorry for any of them at all.

Obama wouldn’t want his son to play football. Too much time away from the knock-out game.

“Bannon’s death leaves his family wondering why a man they described as a compassionate and caring individual was targeted. “

Because he was white and unarmed.

You are correct sir. Does it seem almost like you can count on 1 finger, the number of days per year, that we do NOT hear about feral blacks attacking whites?

“The teen has not been booked yet because he is recovering in a hospital after breaking his arm during a bad landing following a leap out of a second-story window while trying to elude police, McKneely said.”

I wonder what other reasons he had for fleeing?

Reverse the races and it would make the Zimmerman circus look small.

Can we assume the FBI is down there questioning all friends and relatives of the perps to make sure the monsters never said ‘hateful’ things about white people?

LOL - just kidding. There’s two standards to the law now. One standard for groups liberal elites favor - and a lower standard for groups they don’t favor.’

Eff you FBI... Eff you for moving from being the best in the world to being stooges for one political party.
