Agreed Jimmy. All three of them should be put down.

A non-producer should not be allowed to consume resources.

I admit I know nothing about the situation, and I should have kept my opinion quiet until the facts are presented.

Just fine and dandy. All three of them can get life and enjoy their new lives. That of being someone's bitch in prison. Sure would be fun to see them in a year. They will walk and talk different, no easy life anymore and they can look forward to life that way. lol...... Do the crime, get ready to do the time.

Things have gotten way out of hand.
Murders are being committed at an
alarming rate and under the most extreme circumstances. If society
as whole is to blame we must work to
change it.However, when it comes to
sensless murder, those individuals
must be dealt with quickly and severely. Our prisons shouldn't hotels
for murdereres to get three hots and a cot. An eye for an eye is justifiable in this case. This will send a message.

"You have heard that it was said,'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." (Matthew 5:38-42)

These are the words of Jesus - the Son of God. Who are we to argue with Him? Be careful not to judge others. It is by grace (God's free gift) that we are not the ones facing life in prison.

Peace, Love, Joy...

Obviosly not or it would have ben mentioned in the artcle. We tend to leave out race when whites commit crimes, it helps support the myth that only minorities are criminals.

But I must ask, why do you want to know if he is black? And why dose it matter?

In a related news article last night, it showed his mug shot. He was not "BLACK", but his skin tone of dark brown, with black nappy hair indicated he is of African decent.

That link does not work. Can you supply another? Maybe it's user error (smile) after all, I am rather wiped out today.

Your previous comment is interesting, to say the least. I'm not even going to try and guess where you were going with it... Also interesting are the words they chose to edit out of your comment. Not exactly egregious terms, at least not compared to others I've seen. Maybe I've been desensitized...

I'm sorry about the link not working, but the Sheriff's office has a lock on it.

However, if you Google -Marco Danyel Mcilwain-, it will take you to the site of inmates where you can see his photo in their files.

I',m also sorry you have been desensitized. That seems to be the goal of the News Media, for all of us.

Color no longer matters. Once the govt forced the whites to put their children in with the animals, they all became niggwers.

My question is, was Matthew quoting Jesus, or are these own words?

I think Jesus was King of Jews, and Matthew surely sounds like a Jew, if these are his words.

Just a thought on my part.

Straight answer to your question: Yes he is black.

Proof? Follow the link below and look for last name "Mcilwain" and click on the right side where it says Photo.
