Police say 14-year-old Ryan Rogers was minding his own business when 39-year-old drifter Semmie Lee Williams Jr. stabbed him in the face and head for no reason. Rogers died at the scene.
Williams was charged with first-degree murder. Local media says he has previous domestic violence, battery, and aggravated assault convictions. Most likely, he is a career criminal who has been coddled by the justice system his entire life.
This kind of story would make the national news if the races were reversed.
