I have read this many times already. This is def. a hate crime. The problem that people are having is that they are keeping it out of the media unlike the Zimmerman case. They calmed it was racist and all that crap but stories like this are kept away from the media. I find that all of this is bs. You see a white guy shoot a black man and it is ALLLL over the news but if it was a black guy shooting a white guy then it is nowhere to be seen. You might see it once or twice on your local news but thats it.

Personally, I wish they would stop labeling crap like this racist. What I see is a person who committed 1st Degree Murder and deserves life. I don't care if you white, black, or purple. Murder is murder. Put his ass where he belongs. I don't believe in race. I am not white....I am Jonathan and you are whatever your name is. Thats the ONLY way to stop racism. Racism is a made up word to attack people and cover their asses.

You don't think the nasty white people comment on twitter was a red flag? sounds pretty racist to me.

That's how I look at the Zimmerman case. However, this kid alludes to wanting to shoot white people for the hell of it multiple times. He had no motive and no relation to his victim whatsoever.

Wait, did I read that one or possibly all of their social media sites "glorify racism".....would that not be considered evidence that this killing was a hate crime?

Yes it was racist. But what is the point of bringing it up? He committed murder....bottom line. I don't care what his excuses are. My only point was that they don't put this on National news. I WISH they would! They make the black community seem like they need sympathy and crap like that when they don't.

I've seen this story and honestly their actions disgust me. I do believe this was a hate crime and they deserve to rot in jail.

That is because we are pushing the subject. And not only that but we are pushing the stories about all these corrupt cops out there. Did you hear about the two guys that got arrested just for protesting to impeach Obama? That was completely illegal. Or what about the Boston Martial Law practice? Do you know about that? The media is complete trash.

This is absolutely a hate crime. One of the little fuckers says he hates 90% of white people and that they are nasty. Yeah, that is racist. Leads me to believe they purposely picked out a white man to kill because they "were bored". I hope they bury them beneath the jail.

Because committing a come against someone because of their race is a hate crime which is illegal. It's not that much logic to wrap your head around. If another crime has been committed within a crime, it will be brought up.




This story has been all over the news btw :wink:

I've seen this a bunch-- I wish they would quit filling up the jails and just give everyone who murders someone "for fun" the death penalty.
