The news is out: [A New Jersey county has suspended an officer at a juvenile detention center over what it described as a racist Facebook post about the fatal shooting of a 5-year-old in North Carolina.
The officer, Rome Smith, allegedly wrote last week that Cannon Hinnant, who was killed Aug. 9 while playing in his front yard with his sisters, “should’ve ducked,” according to screenshots of the post shared online.
“Y’all always trying to sneak diss and discredit a black person being killed innocently by police. Blame cannon’s parents for not watching him!!! F Y’ALL,” Smith allegedly wrote.
Smith, who is Black, is an officer at the Juvenile Detention Center in Cumberland County. A spokeswoman for the county, Jody Hirata, confirmed to NBC News that Smith is an employee of the county and has been suspended over the post.]
Imagine a low life negro abusing the memory of a dead black child. Ladies and gentlemen, this is our society.
