A murder of a 66-year-old white man by two younger black males in the Greater New Orleans area of Louisiana may be solely racially motivated. This was suggested by the words of one of the suspects, a report reveals.
Double Standards on Hate Crimes
The media typically raises hues and cries about any case of a possible hate crime in which the victim is a person of color.
Such cases fit perfectly the political agenda of the radical left. They don’t even care they are exposed as having double standards in hate crime cases where the victim is a white person.
A case in hand could be the murder of 66-year-old Lawrence Herr in Kenner, Louisiana on April 10. A day later, the Kenner police arrested two black men – Tajh Matthews, 23, and Maurice Holmes, 25, WWL TV reports.
During a court hearing last week, a detective on the case said the homicide the two suspects allegedly perpetrated may be only racially motivated.
The report notes Herr was shot dead as he was working to install a mailbox in front of a home on Kenner’s Georgetown Drive. The hearing was held to consider a bond reduction for Matthews and Holmes.
Tahj Matthews, 23, and Maurice Holmes, 25, brutally murdered an innocent handyman, Lawrence Herr, in a Louisiana town on April 10. Motive? Law enforcement say the two men wanted to “kill a white person.”
There is no wall-to-wall national media coverage of this viciously racist… pic.twitter.com/NeXLVV9h49

The national news media has failed to report on it because Lawrence Herr was the wrong race!

‘Kill a White Person’
According to Keith Conley, the Kenner Police Chief, one of the suspects confessed to the crime, but without giving a motive. Conley added the suspect said the two of them were on a “binge” of “random shootings,” seeking to kill somebody.
When asked about the pair’s motives to murder Herr, the lead detective working the case quoted Matthews as having said he and Holms “wanted to kill a white person.”
Matthews also confessed to hiding the presumed murder firearm in his attic, where the police discovered it with a DNA test still expected.
According to police chief Conley, the suspects’ car was detected by plate reader cameras as it was driving close to Herr numerous times, before the elderly man was shot and killed.
The charges of first-degree murder against the two suspects remain standing after the hearing. The charge in question doesn’t allow suspects to be released on bond.
2 black men went out on a hunt to kill a white person.
