A Rankin County Mississippi teenager pleaded guilty yesterday to running over a black man with his truck, killing him. He did this after he beat him and yelled white power several times. Teen and some friends left a bonfire 30 minutes from Jackson and came to Jackson looking for blacks to beat up. Video of the entire hearing included. Judge was a Republican when on city council and known as pretty conservative.
If he did what he was convicted of, I hope that’s natural life.
Amazing how many of these stories are coming to light at this time.
And he got life? He should be fried!
Ahhh, but you can’t go after the Second Amendment in this case, so that’s why there is no outrage, as you see in Sanford.
Good. Throw the key away.
Well, go on down to Jackson; go ahead and wreck your life.
Go play your hand you big-talkin’ man, make a big fool of yourself,
You’re going to Jackson, you gonna be someone’s prison wife.
they have it on video and several witnesses.
This guy sounds like a rabid animal.
Laying the groundwork for violence against “crackers” around election time. Though black on White violence dwarfs white on black if only one story is reported then the other didn’t happen.
Yeah, a republican judge, a white prosecutor who is known as tough on crime, all conspired to help Democrats. Yup.
I have the sinking feeling that he plead guilty for a life sentence on a plea bargain that should not have been offered. Unless there is a strong likelihood that he could not have been convicted in a jury trial, he should have been tried.
In fact, just today 3/22, Mississippi just executed a murderer, and another just two days ago.
“Laying the groundwork for violence against crackers around election time. Though black on White violence dwarfs white on black if only one story is reported then the other didnt happen.”
The perp will certainly have lots of time to ponder the irony of that ttheory while he is a guest in a Mississippi prison.
family didn’t want him executed. Don’t believe in death penalty.
My thoughts as well.
BLOAT for the long hot summer....
That he is, and he should be put down like one.
But, there is also a "man bites dog" aspect to this story. Gratuitous white on black violence is a lot rarer than gratuitous black on white violence, but you wouldn't know it from the MSM reporting.
Yeah, reading through the story, this...person sounds like a little sociopath.
That’s not how it works. The death penalty, like prison time, is based on the authority of the state, given by a jury of peers. The family of the victim may ask for mercy from a judge only after the jury has found for the death penalty.
But in this case, the process was short circuited by offering a plea bargain for a guilty plea. It’s a question that should be asked of the prosecution why they did this.
