16 Year Old Black Teen Allegedly Beaten, R@ped, and Killed by Two White Men During Robbery

Two accused murderers were arraigned earlier this month in the brutal beating death and r@pe of 16-year-old Dione Payne.

Michael A. Geldrich, 36, and Michael J. Watson, 39,  both of Franklin, Ohio, allegedly beat Payne and assaulted him while they were attempting to rob him.

“During the robbery Geldrich struck the male victim (later identified as Payne) with a table leg, fists, stomped the male with his boots and repeatedly struck the male victim’s head against the floor,” wrote Detective Jeff Stewart.

After beating the teen, Geldrick and Watson dumped the teen at Miami Valley Hospital and fled the area.  Payne was admitted with “heavy damage to his head and was bleeding from his ears” and had “heavy damage done to his chest from what appeared to be someone striking him repeatedly.”  According to the police report, the teen had also been s*xually assaulted.

Geldrick and Watson had reportedly planned to rob the teen, who allegedly sold narcotics.

As Son of Baldwin rightly points out, this case is not only disturbing because of the viciousness of the attack, but also because of how it is being covered by the media:

A 16-year-old black boy is raped, brutally beaten, and murdered by two grown white men and the title of the local news story is:

“Dayton Teen Beaten to Death Had Troubled Past”

This is the insidiousness of racism: When you are black, you cannot be a victim. You are guilty even if proven innocent. You are responsible for your own demise. You are forever the child of Dred Scott and you have no rights which a white person is bound to respect.

This is so sad .so horrible, more open season on brutalizing and torturing and raping and murdering of our young black boys by the evil beast of the white man. This is my first hearing about this story. Where is the outrage from parent or community about this case. I am sick and tired of black people sitting down silently not saying a word about these astrocities committed on our own race of people. It was Dione Payne yesterday, if you don't stand up, it migjt be you tomorrow. Please call if you care to do something black people at 888 959 1197. God Help us.All.

This is beyond wrong. Color disregarded past irrelevant, this is sick and if it were two black men raping a white boy they would still be hung, I'm over it, this is gonna stop or things are going to get ugly.

It's really sad that our black victims always have to be identified as troubled and their past brought to light.  Don't recall reading anything about either murderer's past.  America is still prejudice to the blacks but so willing to forgive all others.  Open or eyes and pray it will one day get better.

I am angry and I'm speechless. Wonder if these two white supremacists will do maximum bids, or not? Of late, if you're rich you can kill and get away with it, from Trayvon Martin, to too many other's I can't keep up with. We use to sing "To Be Young, Gifted and Black", but our Black Youths are not getting the chance.

the news people have always been racist

listen carefully how they identify children.

Caucasian of crime is describe as pretty, young, blonde, child

blacks are describe as man, teen, criminal, woman, troubled

@GeorgiaJohnson Statement should have stated "a few so called elite out of sixty seven million "does not make a racist free society".  and as you stated the  "STRUGGLE CONTINUES".

@GeorgiaJohnson There are those who have their heads buried deep into sand.  A few "so called elite"   out of sixty seven million do make a racist free society.  Any Person of African descent  regardless of where they are on the "so called elite" scale is subject to the same treatment as the person sitting under the neighborhood  tree with the infamous "brown paper bag" with a forty ounce.

@Amazing GraceDon't give up! We need to continue to say "To Be Young,Gifted and Black" remembering " tough times don't last but tough people do" Let's keep telling our babies(even if they aren't our own kids) how wonderful they are.(girls included) Keep our history as a people in the Americas in perspective; we have survived so much. God bless and keep the faith.
