The first story I saw was this, by Walied Shoebat:

Can't load tweet https://twitter.com/walidshoebat/status/975913986582548480?s=12: Sorry, you are not authorized to see this status.

The story about about the boy who murdered his sister, execution style, is illustrated by a picture of a white child.

Shoebat's linking to his blog, which links to this from RT:

It's illustrated by a picture of a white hand holding a gun.

The Jackson Clarion-Ledger (which is where RT got the story) reports that this happened in Monroe County, Mississippi.

That's the first clue that this might not be a white crime—Mississippi Today says Monroe County is the "Front line of America’s drug war", and here's what that means in terms of mugshots:

The Clarion-Ledger's story—and they should know better—is illustrated by a picture of a white girl playing video games—13-year-old girl dead after 9-year-old brother shoots her over video game, sheriff says, by Therese Apel and Harold Gater, The Clarion-Ledger, March 18, 2018.

Inside that story is this:

Update: Coroner IDs girl allegedly shot by 9-year-old brother over video game

It's illustrated with two pictures of childish white hands holding or reaching for guns, and it says that the deceased is named "Dijonae White".

"Dijonae White" is the kind of name none of the people in these photos have, and it turns out that she and her mother, pictured in Facebook via this story from the UK, are in fact black: Boy, 9, shot and killed sister, 13, because she wouldn’t give him video game controller, by Jimmy McCloskey, Metro, March 19, 2018.

So why are all these pictures of white kids?
