    Why isn't this on national news? If he was a White/Hispanic, this would be all over the news.
    Talk about a double standard.

    Why doesn't CNN or a big news station , bring all these black on black shootings to the attention of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the world. If you want racism to stop , this craziness of shooting innocent people and young kids needs to stop. If you hang with thugs, you are a thug. We need to stop the street violence so there is no need for neighborhood watch to have to be on guard and scared of the thugs.

        Not sure if you are for or against my comment. MY bet is because you signed it "black woman" that you disapprove of the punishment I suggested. Why is that? Let me guess- it is because he is black therefore he should n0ot be held accountable for his actions. It is obvious that you feel he should be given a pat on the back and let since he is black. So you are a racist to boot?

    Take him out back and shoot him. But oh no. He's going to jail where they have a TV, a weight room, 3 meals a day. Maybe he can even get that GED that he's been putting off. All at our expense. What a world.
