In August 2014, 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found dead, hanging from a playground swing set. Because he was black, it was naturally assumed that he was lynched and outrage ensued. It didn’t matter that police had determined the death was a suicide because everyone in the black community knows all cops are racist. Obama’s Justice Department stepped in to get to the bottom of this “racial killing” and after an extensive FBI investigation it turns out the kid killed himself.
With the American media actively portraying our country as the most racist place on Earth, news of the FBI’s findings kind of flew under the radar. The Justice Department issued a statement that went largely ignored by the media, which had been so engaged in the initial reporting of Lacy’s lynching.
The United States Attorney’s Office announced today that following its investigation into the death of Lennon Lacy there is no evidence to pursue federal criminal civil rights charges.
Lacy, a 17-year old African-American male, was discovered hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, North Carolina, on August 29, 2014.
Justice Department investigators conducted a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding Lacy’s death to determine whether his death was a homicide within the scope of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention
Act of 2009, which prohibits inflicting bodily injury because of the victim’s actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, gender identity or disability.
Isn’t it weird how the federal government never launches a civil rights investigation when a white straight person is killed? When a white guy hangs himself, it’s just a suicide. When a white guy is killed while attacking a police officer, it’s a justifiable homicide. Why does out government think that blacks and gays are incapable of being violent or depressed?
