first degree murder deserves a first class hangin
Article says the killer could be out in 5 years with “good behavior”.
Didn’t the liberals tell us that the knockout game is a myth???
Jesse Smithers is among the latter.
The rule of law means less and less every day.
Recommendation to friends and family of the murder victim.
When the time is ripe........
Shoot, shovel and shut-up.
Five years? Five little years. I look at that 20 year old kid and think he would only be 25 at the time his KILLER gets out of jail. I don’t know how his family can stand it. Such an injustice...
The dead guy is still going to be dead forever though, right?
It is a figment of the TEA parties fevered imagination.
Special lite sentences for Sons of Obama. Cant let them waste too much time behind bars. Theres lots more whiteys out there to play knockout with.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Prison has it’s own knock-out game.
Thank you sir. It is obvious the press is still covering for the Won.
Can’t have the reality of who plays the “knock out” game be shown.
first degree murder....why is he only getting 10 yrs and probably out in 5?
Sounds like the short sentence is because of whatever idiots wrote the Minnesota law. Sounds crazy to me, but I guess 8 months of snow and having to listen to Garrison Keillor will do that.
Ten years for KILLING someone?
He won an all expense paid trip to College for PHd in Applied Crime.
Some people leave the world a better place for having been there and some leave the world a better place for leaving it.
Its a start but we still have a long way to go to get these punks on the end of a rope for playing their stupid game.
Better solution might be to drop them in the streets with one between their eyes and walk away. (Walk fast)
So. What’s to be done?
Our AG isn’t going to prosecute “his people” as he stated.
Is there any other legal solution, other than maintaining a defensive posture?
That’s what happens when you start devaluing life. Look at abortion and more recently obamacare death panels.
There is no such thing as a “legal solution” as long as that criminal (felon for sure), white hating pig, eric “the red” holdmup, is at the head of the once justice department.
But this here boy jesse has to go live inside with the aryan brotherhood, and their concept of “justice” is very much different.
True, boy jesse will have his mudslime defenders, but they can’t take his back all the time.
Will be interesting to see if he makes it to 10.
I hope that somebody will be waiting for him when he gets out of jail.
Singing “Waiting and Hoping”.
But they did post that reality. That photo is both the still shot for the video and in the 7 photos associated with the story. It’s literally front and center.
OK, I could not see it. Guess my lack of Adobe Flash kept me from seeing it.
Will look again.
“You need to download the latest version of flash player to use this player”
Guess I do need help. But not bad enough to use Adobe flash player.
Colton Gleason was the only picture I saw on the webpage. He is obviously a white kid.
Oh. Sorry. I didn’t play the movie but I saw the attackers photo in the still frame sneak peek for the vid. I generally read FR on an iPad 1 so I assumed it wasn’t flash if I got the still frame.
It’s there. I guess I could post a screen shot but I haven’t signed for an Image shack or anything as yet.
No, don’t bother.
I was just saying that was why I did not see it.
A 20-year-old college student died after being struck by a single punch while protecting two female friends from a carload of attackers in a quiet Minnesota college town.
Mr Gleason, who was studying business at Minnesota State University-Mankato, had traveled an hour from his hometown of Greenfield to St Cloud to visit his friends.
They were walking in a residential alley near the St Cloud State University campus about 11.30pm on Friday when a light-colored four-door sedan with five to seven people inside pulled up.
Officers believe the occupants were on the way to a nearby party.
The car was so close to Mr Gleason, he put his hands on it to prevent the vehicle from hitting his friends, his father says. The car stopped and at least one man got out.
It’s not a “GAME”! It’s a knockout assault, or knockout attack, and every News organization who uses the word Game is understating what it really is.
It is a criminal assault - a serious crime.
Play GTA V; it’s incorporated into the game, fwiw...
Maybe some of the real tough guys on the inside will show him how it’s really done...
