I know no one will read this but i read about my brother everyday. I miss him more than anything in this world, and those three boys took him away and for the rest of my life ill make sure they dont get out of jail. they get what they deserve! knowing that you wont get to see someone you love some much hurts so bad! just thinking what happin to him i can picture it in my head and they did him so rong. i dont think anyone will ever forgive them and they shouldnt because they killed my brother. alls he wanted to do was go to school again and get that 1 credit he needed and go to collage to be an artist but no they took that away!

Lindsay,
As you can see, people have read the words you write. I cried as I told my children of the severe beating and still get tears in my eyes thinking of the injustice of what happened.
You're damned right those boys deserve prison! Better yet, they deserve what God thinks is adequate. I know it's hard to believe, but forgiving them IS putting it in Gods hands. There is nothing in human society (at least in the US) that could make it equal in pain for what they did. The best you can do is to pray to forgive them, and let God.
I hate the fact that if the circumstances were different, the media would have been ALL over it. Say, three white guys beat a black boy to death. Do you think the national news would have covered this as a hate crime instead of the low coverage that it was given? I absolutely believe this was a hate crime, and it had alot to do with race. People in Bangor are not from Chicago or Milwaukee where this type of crime goes on every week. This was not because these three boys thought your brother, whom just got off of work at the local grocery store as a bag-boy, had a wad of cash or any drugs to steal. This was pure hate that instigated the crime.

Lindsay,
I can honestly say I know just how your feeling...I lost my daughter Lindsey 19 at the hands of another.Shot down just 14 days befor her 20th Birthday. Leaving behind 2 beautiful babies that will never know thier mothers warm touch or tender voice. As I wait for a trial date my family lives in misery at the horrible and tragic loss. My heart goes out to you and your family, I will keep you in my prayers.
You can also get a lot of support from this web site,it helped me.
