I hope these young men have the opportunity to attend some cultural awareness classes and sensitivity training while in prison.

Can’t we all just get along?

They were only found guilty because they’re hispanic.

Damn racist Americans!

The Mexicans are imitating a scene from the “Godfather”. Remember the scene where the heads of the crime families get together and talk about WHO they will sell the drugs to and WHY.

I’m glad they’re off the streets. Law enforcement is for the protection of all citizens.
