Remember Jayvon Hatchett?
He was in the news two weeks ago because he walked into an AutoZone, found a random white person who was employed there, and stabbed him in the neck seven times. He then told police his motive was that he "felt the need to find a white male to kill" after watching videos of police shootings.
Hatchett went to jail for trying to brutally murder a 51-year-old white guy he didn't even know, just because of his skin color. He is obviously a very violent and radical racist. Inexplicably, the jail put him in a cell with a ... white guy.
On Saturday, Hatchett beat his white cellmate to death.
The victim was 39-year-old Eddie Nelson. His mother has since spoken out:
"I have a question for the Sheriff. Why? Why did you put my son and that other man in there together? Why? Can you answer me that? I lost a son because of y'alls negligence."
The family's attorney, Craig Jones, said:
"If this mentally imbalanced individual had been a member of the Ku Klux Klan, they would not have put him in a cell with a black person. If he was a rapist, they wouldn't have put him in a cell with a woman. If he had bombed a synagogue they wouldn't have put him in a cell with a Jewish person. If he had been that white kid up in Wisconsin that shot those demonstrators they would not have put him in a cell with demonstrators. I mean this is either sheer stupidity or meanness that's the only way I can explain it ... How long does it take to beat somebody to death with your bare hands and not have anybody notice?"
By the way, it was pathetic how little the corporate media covered the AutoZone stabbing. They won't cover this either.
