Black Woman Arrested In Murder Of 6 Month Old White Baby Who Was Kidnapped & Set On Fire. National Media Silent
This story sounds a little weird, but as it stands right now, a black woman in Louisiana has been arrested for the murder of a 6 month old white baby who was kidnapped and later found burning by the railroad tracks. No matter what the end story comes to be, had the races been reversed this would be headline news nationally.
What we know right now is that 25 year old Felicia Marie-Nicole Smith has been arrested for the murder of 6 month old Levi Cole Ellerbe. Levi`s mother Hanna Barker says that he was kidnapped after 2 men knocked on her trailer door around 9 pm on July 17. When she answered they maced her and she ran. After she returned to the trailer her 6 month old son Levi Cole Ellerbe was missing. Less than 90 minutes later a fire was reported by the railroad that turned out to be the body of 6 month old Levi. He was rushed to the hospital where he later passed away. There has been no information yet on how Felicia and Hanna may have known each other, or any information about the 2 men that reportedly maced Hanna.
Again, this is a truly horrific story, and had the races been reversed this would be national news. The double standards in what stories are reported on and which ones aren`t is getting old.
