In Franklin, Ohio, two men are being held in Warren County lockup after they were accused of beating up a young dope boy. They managed to sodomize and rape him before they've dropped his dying body off at a local hospital.
Asshat Colin Flahtery and that bonehead conservative agitator Sean Hannity (known as That Guy Who Helped Obama Win) aren't covering this story because it doesn't fit their narrative of Black on White crime.
Oh, I forgot, they always need something to attack President Barack Obama.
White on Black crime. The suspects accused were either drug addicts or actual racists.
Yeah, I understand that the Black teen was a dope boy but it should merit for his death. The two men done something reckless and inhumane. These men may end up getting the gas chamber if they're found guilty of this teen's murder.
Of course, since this made it to the evening news, I am wondering if I could tip off Black America Web or The Huffington Post. I mean would it go viral?
Will it discredit the conservative talking point about the "knockout game"?
The Dayton Daily News and The Middletown Journal report that the teen is identified and the charges are serious for two men from the Franklin area.
While it's unknown if the teen knew his attackers, some point to the teen's history of being a dope boy.
The family of the victim knew from the jump that the tattoos on the wrist "SELF" and "MADE" were his.
The victim has been identified as Dione Payne, 16, of Dayton. Police said he was in Franklin to sell illegal narcotics when he was robbed and beaten.

The unresponsive teen was pushed in a wheelchair by a man described as a white male wearing a black hoodie, according to a Middletown police report obtained by the Journal-News.
The man then fled. Hospital personnel said the teen was in critical condition and had heavy damage to his head and was bleeding from his ears, according to the report.
After Payne was transported to Miami Valley Hospital, personnel there contacted Middletown police, stating that the teen appeared to have been sexually assaulted, according to the report.
A nurse told police she talked with a passenger in the truck who said they had found the teen and they didn’t know him.
Investigators worked through the weekend to identify the victim and the suspects. It wasn’t until the Journal-News posted a story with the vehicle description that police got a break.
A woman who had looked at the truck for sale at a Middletown car lot recognized the description and called police, according to Lt. Scott Reeve.
“We called D&D Auto Sales and found out who they sold it to,” Reeve said, noting that led to the search warrant and arrest of the suspects in Franklin.
The Middletown Division of Police initiated an investigation to determine where the assault against the juvenile occurred. Middletown police’s investigation brought them to Franklin where they combined their efforts with that city’s police department.
Sunday night, officers served a search warrant at 11 Vernon St. in Franklin, the confirmed site of the teen’s beating. The Warren County Major Crimes Unit was requested to process the vehicle found there and the crime scene, according to Franklin police.
Two men — Michael A. Geldrich, 36, and Michael J. Watson, 39, both of Franklin — were taken into custody and charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated murder, Whitman said.
Both men have a criminal history in Warren County, according to court records. Geldrich had been arrested for domestic violence, theft and driving under suspension, according to Franklin Municipal Court records. Watson has arrests for felonious assault, disorderly conduct, assault, resisting arrest and inducing panic.
We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Dione Payne.
