You should put a BIG PICTURE of him in your paper like you do Black People.

I hope the $8 was worth half of a lifetime incarcerated. Condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

well, obviously the 2 friends were white too. If they were black, they would get the electric chair along with the honorable young Mr.Adamo, who should rightfully spend the rest of his evil life behind bars of titanium. He's probably rich too. Usually rich kids do heinous crimes such as these. And all three are drug addicts. If they were black, that would tack on an additional 5 years. So, moral of the story: if you are present and accountable for a murder, years later, tell on one person, live the rest of your life worry free. (if you're white of course)

Sound like you know Bubba intimately. How much time did you do him?

I think this is a murder thing. Not a black and/or white thing. Or at least it should be. They should all go to jail. Killing anyone is wrong, knowing someone killed someone and not telling the proper authorities is just as wrong in my book.

wow, I guess you can turn anything into a racial issue these days. Justice was served. This guy is going to serve a long time in jail. Death would be a very easy way out.

It's always a racial issue. Justice is dispensed differently according to your race in this country. So, race is always a factor, cindy of st. joseph. In Chicago, hundreds of Black men were tortured and sent to death row on fabricated evidence. Now they are suing the city for millions of dollars. All their pictures were splashed across the papers and news as murderers. So, we should get a picture of these guys in the paper as well. I want to know what they look like, I want to see their mug shots.

Here's your mugshot! http://www.dailyherald.com/story/...

Gosh, anything to turn an issue into a racial issue and divert attention from the real issue at hand - condolences to the victim's family, and at least justice was served in the end ...

He is my cousin...luigi adamo. And my whole family is devastated and completely heartbroken right before christmas. had you been there you'd realize there was NO EVIDENCE to prove he did this. 10 members of the 1st jury said not guilty, 2 said guilty. but some scum wrote in the paper that it was the other way around. don't worry, he'll appeal this and he'll be out by next Christmas. no biggie!!!

There seems to be many sides of this, someone apparrantely had to be a scapegoat and they all ganged up on Adamo. What about the girl, something seems up with her? If your ass is on the line better off blaming someone so make a deal, and you call this justice??? Only in America.

Hi
My aunt is very good friends with his mom Cookie. She is such a sweet and generous woman. You all have my deepest sympathy. I feel for what the family has to be going through right before Christmas. I think all of Louie's ex firends had a way bigger part in all of this. I wish you all the best and hope that he does get his appeal.
M.H.
been there _done that

well i can tell ya'all first hand, that luigi adamo was guilty without a doubt! so sorry to all his family memebers that he lied to. i would want to believe my child was innocent too! fact is, he did kill john conrad and without any remorse or reason. the kids that finally told the police are my hero's. it took alot of guts! and this will haunt them till the day they die.
my heartfelt condolences to john's family. what a roller coaster ride they have had to endure! i am so glad justice has been done!!!

this guy was a punk his whole life and now he gets what is coming to him. No one is above the law including shifty, lying, jerks who think they can do what ever they want while normal people get the shaft. Hey Luigi, don't drop the soap!!!!
