Derrick Lashun Hobbs was probably an honor student.

Not all murders of black people make national news. Despite their devotion to #BlackLivesMatter, CNN will never mention this crime:

DOUGLASVILLE, GA — A Douglasville man who authorities say murdered his mother and niece is in the Douglas County Jail as of Thursday afternoon.
Derrick Lashun Hobbs, 37, was arrested Sunday night after the bodies of Lawanda Barrows, 59, and Layla Hobbs, 4, were found in a burning vehicle behind a residence on Colquitt Street. Hobbs was charged with two counts of aggravated assault in connection with their deaths. He was denied bond.
The Douglas County Sentinel reported Hobbs is the only suspect in the case. No motive or other details were provided by police.
The Douglasville Police and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the deaths.

Curiously, no media outlet reporting this story included a mugshot of the suspect. The only way I found a photo of Hobbs was from a Google search that turned up notice of his status as a sex offender, having been convicted of felony statutory rape in 2003. So he raped a minor when he was 20, and then murdered his own mother and niece last weekend — allegedly, I hasten to add. I wouldn’t want to libel someone who was probably an honor student, and might yet become a civil rights hero, if he somehow manages to get himself shot to death by a white cop.
