https://thegrio.com/2018/05/31/outrage-after-police-say-white-man-bragging-about-running-over-and-killing-some-nir-on-snapchat-is-not-a-crime/

pparently there’s an emoji for everything—even your response to the senseless murder of an innocent man.

On Tuesday, Matthew Martin, of Hineston, Louisiana, reportedly posted a video online about his chance encounter with Sherell Lewis Jr. on the side of a highway. Under the video, Martin discussed the incident using the laughing emojis to illustrate his feelings about the fatal attack.

In one message, a red vehicle can be seen with the caption “y’all i just hit a whole guy on the highway,” with three laughing sob emojis.

When asked what Martin hit, he responded:

Martin: Some ni**er

Martin’s friend: How did the chevy take it?

Martin: F***ed it up pretty good lol

Martin’s friend: It’ll buff out. Did the guy die on impact or what

Martin: No he died otw to the hospital

38. Hi Dennis

This shit that's not even good at fertilizing a field, calls himself a supremacist and thinks he's superior!

As a lawyer, I condemn any form of exception and any idea of seeking justice for oneself...

Though, I'd love to see that scumbag, playing the part of "the strange fruit" like in Abel Meeropol's poem and Billie Holiday's song!

6. I can't find the words to begin this reply.

I knew society had fallen in the last 18 months or more, but not that far. How could anyone...even a Trump supporter...not be humbled by what happened? Humbled and shamed. Haunted, perhaps knowing he was responsible for the loss of life of another. Certainly not able to find the words to express what happened. Certainly not THOSE words.

What total scum.

15. Thank you. Sorry about the deletion. I was trying to edit to add more info and

had a brain fart here.

My husband knew Lewis . We've been talking about this a lot today.

He saw Sherell the day before he was killed.

Lewis cut a lot of military and ex-military hair.

Lewis was clearing debris on the road to keep others from hitting it. He was doing this because he was that kind of person - helpful and thinking of others.

He was well known in the community because of his profession and his charity work with young people.

What I wanted to add: There is a lot of outrage here but most of us think nothing will be done about it.

9. There have been racist, nasty, bigoted people in this country forever. But they by and large

kept their mouths shut and behaved in a somewhat civil fashion until recently.

The orange one has unleashed the hate and vitriol in these people. He's encouraged them to demean people for no reason other than the color of their skin, or their religion, their gender, or their country of origin.

The orange one is a symptom of a disease in this country and the prognosis is not good.

13. Yes, as long as they vote for him, and

 

clap and shout and attend his rallies, and do his bidding otherwise (think: brownshirts).

Trump IS a dictator-wannabe. He WILL become one if he's not stopped. So far the press and the courts have been doing a fairly reasonable job of holding him at bay; the Repbublican-controlled Congress not so much, and that needs to be fixed.

But yes, I'm sorry, but this is exactly what Trump wants.

very serious questions about whether or not he hit the man deliberately? And posting this on social media — how very sick.

39. I think it's very possible he hit him deliberately

Even if Lewis was in the roadway, drivers are supposed to try and avoid hitting people. They will be looking at skid marks to see if there's any indication the driver swerved or slammed on his brakes.

The depression that ensued on 11/8/16 has turned to despair over what the imbecile-in-chief has done to us all. Rage is rampant, responsibility is non-existent. How will we ever recover from this travesty?

28. Is Matthew Martin human?

I have issues with running over living things. I've hit a squirrel or two, one possum I'm sure, and a couple of deer. Plenty of cats have tested my brakes.

I know plenty of people who have shown more remorse for running over a squirrel or a possum than this excuse for a human being has shown for running over another human.

Mr. Martin, if this is true, needs to serve some time at the pleasure of their state governor for quite a long time.

44. YouTube: Louisiana Man Struck and killed by racist Trumpkin While Picking Up Debris



Picture of the filthy racist at 3:11

Thanks for the sad, awful information. Hope enough people protest the cops might raise their standards and do something about this.

Added article:

May 31 2018

This teen ran over a black man and laughed about killing ‘some n*****’
He wrote: ‘y’all i just hit a whole guy on the highway’

by Harry Shukman

This is the guy who ran over a black man and laughed that he killed "some nigger." Matthew Martin, 18, from Louisiana struck Sherell Lewis on the highway in Vernon Parish. Lewis had stopped his car on the shoulder to move debris out the way when he was hit by Martin's truck. Lewis was 31 when he died.

Screenshots of a Snapchat conversation are circulating online, which appear to show Martin laughing about the incident. A friend says: "it'll buff out," referring to Martin's dented Chevy and then asks: "The guy die on impact or what." Martin responds: "yes sir 😂 no he died otw to the hospital."
