PK NOTE: Their Lives Matter Too. It’s a book you must pick up. Names you’ve never encountered, stories you’ve never read about, all for one, unmentionable reason: black on white murder.
Sioux Falls, South Dakota is 84 percent white and 5 percent black.
Keep this in mind as the following story unfolds.
A black gang in South Dakota, existing to rob individuals to fund their operations, is behind the murder of a white male who worked at Domino’s delivering pizza. [Documents: Man charged in homicide of delivery driver tied to group set on ‘robbing people’, ArgusLeader.com, March 5, 2020]:
The man charged with killing a Domino’s delivery driver last week was tied to a group of people in Sioux Falls set out to make money by robbing people, according to an arrest affidavit.
Statements from a “source of information,” along with witness statements, surveillance video from various sources and Crimestoppers tips after the murder helped capture him, the affidavit states.
Jahennessy Deunique LaPaul Bryant, 21, from Sioux Falls, was arrested on Wednesday afternoon in eastern Sioux Falls on two charges of first-degree murder, one charge of second-degree murder, one charge of first degree attempted robbery and manslaughter with a dangerous weapon, court documents state.
First-degree murder is a Class A felony, punishable by death or life in prison and/or a $50,000 fine. Second-degree murder and manslaughter are Class B felonies with a mandatory sentence of life in prison and/or $50,000 fine. First-degree attempted robbery is a Class 3 felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison and/or a $30,000 fine.
Detectives said Bryant is the only suspect in the case, Lt. Terrance Matia said during Thursday morning’s daily police briefing.
“The case isn’t done yet. We do not have any (other) arrests, but it’s an ongoing investigation,” Matia said. “The success for us would lead to the prosecution of Mr. Bryant for this murder.”
Casey Paul Bonhorst, 30, was shot to death at about 8:45 p.m. on Feb. 26 in the 2800 block of East Bragstad Drive just south of 26th Street near Cleveland Avenue.
Bonhorst had just delivered a pizza to a residence on the street at about 8:41 p.m. After the delivery was made, Bryant allegedly tried to rob him, according to a news release from police. Two minutes later, a caller reported to police that a man was lying in the road. Bonhorst died at the scene.
‘Crime of opportunity’
Police found Bryant at an apartment complex near 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue around 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. A warrant was issued for his arrest, carrying a $500,000 cash only bond.
A portion of 26th Street was shut down between Sycamore and Bahnson Avenues as they arrested Bryant. He was arrested without incident, police say.
“It was a crime of opportunity,” Matia said. “Wrong place, wrong time. It was a robbery that was attempted. Where it went from there led to Casey’s death.”
Court documents state Bryant, also known as “Jrocc,” went to an apartment complex on East 26th Street after the shooting and met up with two other individuals who frequently hung out with Bryant, as well as a third individual.
Tips sent in to CrimeStoppers after the homicide reported one of the other men as the shooter initially, but during the investigation detectives found a witness who knew the man and had spoken to him the morning of the shooting, the affidavit states.
The witness described a video chat with the other two men holding a black handgun and passing it back and forth.
The witness stated one of the men had mentioned that he recently came into possession of the handgun and was “tired of not having money,” the affidavit states. The man told the witness he was “coming up,” which was later clarified as making money and the two described to the witness how they would do that by “robbing people,” the documents state.
“Pizza delivery folks don’t carry a lot of cash,” Matia said. “To perpetrate a robbery on an individual who is delivering pizza when we all pay for things mostly through an app on a phone is not very well-thought out. For a person out there working as he was – doing his job and working hard – and for this to happen the way it happened, it’s unsavory to most.”
His name is Casey Paul Bonhorst, a white male simply working a job delivering pizza, murdered by a black male in 84% Sioux Falls, South Dakota, whose vocation/avocation was robbing individuals to help fund the black gang he was a member of…
There is no double standard in America, only The Standard, dictating white people have no collective interests or concerns, and that violent interracial crime can only be reported if a white person (thereby all white people in the USA are guilty) is the suspect.
And remember: Their Lives Matter Too.
