The father of murdered five-year old child Cannon Hinnant described the senseless death of his son in a new interview on Friday, recounting a loving father’s worst nightmare.
As a warning, this footage is truly heartbreaking and tragic.
Today is one of those news days that will stick with me. @bryanmimsWRAL and I had the chance to speak with Austin Hinnant, the father of Cannon. Cannon was shot in the head by their neighbor, who just the night before Austin had invited in to share a dinner. #CannonHinnant pic.twitter.com/qk0sNLPyqX

“You can’t imagine what it’s like to hold your son… While he’s suffering from a gunshot wound to the head… As his blood runs down my arm.”
Austin Hinnant dropped to his knees and prayed for God’s mercy upon his son. Hinnant expressed his belief that God did ultimately show his mercy on young Cannon, who died, but is now united with his Creator in Paradise.
The tragic and senseless murder has been largely ignored by national media, with some speculating that the event is “politically inconvenient.” Hinnant was white, and the man arrested in his murder, 25-year old Darius N. Sessoms, is black. The utter callousness of the crime is brutal by any standard, with Sessoms being accused of approaching the five year old child while he was riding a bicycle and shooting him in the head.
A GoFundMe created for the benefit of the Hinnant family has raised more than $500,000 as of Saturday, a sum that will never fill the replaceable loss of a loved and innocent five-year old child.

Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”
Project much, Jim?
CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”
Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:
“I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”
Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
