SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida teenager received a life sentence Wednesday after a jury convicted him of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two young British tourists last April, a case that generated blaring tabloid headlines in the U.K. press.
Shawn Tyson, 17, sat stone-faced as the jury's verdict was read and as two friends of the victims spoke angrily about the crime.

Is that a hate crime, Congresswoman Jackson-Lee?
Funny, wasn’t big news here.
Oh, didn’t fit the victim narrative, Brian and Wolfie ignore that stuff.
This crime calls for the death penalty.............within 48 hours.
Too bad that’s all he got.
Just another homeboy that could have been the son of BO, our white African American president . . .
Justice for James & James!!! I am James and James!!
Hmmm... not a mention on his or the victims' colors.
Another Son of Obama doin his thang!
if Obama had a son...........would he look like...
And to think those two white guys didn’t even have Hoodies on! NOR WERE THEY ROBBED, SO....
Where is the outrage! Where are the screams of “hate crime!”
Shawn, Have a good time with Bubba.
Prison doesn’t frighten someone like this. Now wait for all the cries of racism by libs. Has CNN shown pictures of him when he was 5 years old yet?
AP is crap “news”.
“Oh look, I’ll post a news story on FR using the worst possible news source with the least information.”
“This crime calls for the death penalty.............within 48 hours.”
I agree. Unfortunately, I understand that the death penalty is not allowed in Florida for those under age 18.
Since he’s under age 18, the State should probably provide him with an initial supply of Vaseline and lip-softener—he’s going to need a lot of both. Since this guy looks like Obama’s son would look (if Obama had a son) perhaps Obama could provide him some from his left-over supplies from when he was a younger butt-boy?
EXACTLY! That son-of-Obama should have got what he gave.
17 yr old? O Lawdy NO! He jus’ a chile!
Did either of the murderers look like he could be Obama’s son?
