A 49-year-old black man from Mississippi was viciously beaten and killed by a group of seven white teens who randomly targeted the auto plant worker in a racially motivated hate crime. And guess what? The crime was caught on video!
James Craig Anderson was attacked by a group of white teens while standing beside his car in a parking lot in Jackson, Mississippi. According to police reports, the group yelled out “white power” as they beat the man to his death. Once they finished the beating, Anderson tried to get away. As he was stumbling away, one of the accusers (Daryl Dedmon Jr.) jumped the curb and ran over him! Most of the event was captured live on surveillance camera.
According to law enforcement officials, the seeds for the tragic event were planted earlier that night when one of the teens, Daryl Dedmon Jr, suggested, “let’s go f*ck with some n*ggers,” prompting the group to drive to a predominantly black area in nearby Jackson to look for some trouble..
They reportedly saw Anderson standing in the parking lot as soon as they got off the exit ramp and then the beating began.
“I ran that n*gger over,” Dedmon allegedly said in a phone conversation to the teens in the other car after driving over a bewildered Anderson. [source]
One of the accusers, Daryl Dedmon Jr (18), is facing a possible DOUBLE life sentence after being charged with murder. John Aaron Rice (18) has only been charged with simple assault. Crazy thing is…these two are the only ones being charged! What about the others that participated???
