This was a modern day lynching by the Sarpy County police and the DA. With an all white jury...what else would be expected. This teaches me to let a peckawood stay out in the cold winter weather like his family left him.

I Totally agree, this was a modern day lynching trial. If this was a white man on trial he would have walked out of there but being this victim was a white man even though a trouble making, wife beating alcoholic, druggie that his own family didnt even care about, a innocent good man and father have to pay the price for defending his self. All blacks stay out of Nebraska before you end up in the same situation. This is the reason i cant stand none of you WHITE PEOPLE.

Are you kidding me?? Do you think if Darrel would've killed a black person, he would've been let off or if the jury was all black he would've been set free?? He'll no! He was acknowledged for killing a human being, whether he be black or white had nothing to do with it! Get some morals!!!!

Are we forgetting that Mr. White took a butterfly knife, and stabbed a man in his heart? How convenient it is to blame a racist society, or cry America is unjust when there is a black on white crime and the black man gets convicted. Sure Mr. White was doing a kind thing by letting Todd stay with him. Does that give him the right to murder him in cold blood?
Let's step back a moment, eliminate the color of skin from both involved parties, and look at three facts as they were presented: Expert testimony validated Todd was in a reclined position when he was stabbed. Minutes prior to the stabbing, a witness saw the two fighting outside their apartment; Mr. White was hitting Todd, and Todd was retreating from Mr. White without hitting him back. Finally, if Todd had attacked Mr. White, why were there no defensive wounds ANYWHERE on Mr. Whites body?
While there is no doubt that racism is present in this country, let's not perpetuate hate and intolerance by screaming racism when a guilty man gets what he deserves.
This wasn't a hate crime, this was the murder of a man struck down in the prime of his life. The Jury saw this, and ruled accordingly.

You are a asshole!! I am Darrell Girlfriend. You were not there. There was no Fight. If he really wanted to get away with this all he had to do was to push Todd's as out the back door. And find him in the morning. I was there every day with bothb them. You dont know what you are talking about. Todd was a violent drunk.

You were not there either Sherri, so don't presume to know what happened that night. Todd had his demons, that is not is dispute. I knew Todd for about 3 or 4 years prior to your boyfriend murdering him, and have seen him intoxicated. He was NOT a violent man. You thing that the fact that Darryl didn't push Todd out the back door after he murdered him is a testament to the innocents of Darryl? That is unbelievable naive! I heard the tapes (as I'm sure you have as well), your boyfriend initially tried to pin the blame on Mary.

While I don't doubt that this is a tragedy for Darryls family, and had caused unmentionable sorrow; You may take comfort in the knowledge that Darryl, while locked up, may live to see his grand kids grow, get married, and live their lives. Todd on the other hand is still dead. This is what your boo has stolen from his family, and friends.

Your anger is misplace, seek counseling.

Very Respectfully,
"Asshole"

Since you guys were such good friends why didnt you offer your house for him to stay? Did you know he beat his ex wife. Since you knew him so well. Did you know that he was thrown out of the bistro due to violence? Did you know when he was drunk I made sexual advances to me that were unwelecome? I could go on, and on. It's great everyone comes out of the wood work when something happens, where were you before? AND BY THE WAY he has gotten violent with Darrell on more than 1 occassion. Huh I dont remember you being there when it happend?

Nice of you to say when you know none of us which includes Todd ,Darrell and myself. Get your ass educated on the case and people before you give you un informed opinion

If you all look back at any case in Sarpy County that the racist Judge Max Kelch presided over. Find out what color each defendant was and then find out what their sentence was, get back on this forum and let us know what you think. My brother got 90 yrs for 2nd degree murder, which should've been self defense. That trial went the way Max Kelch wanted it to go. He needs to be disbarred for the things he allowed to go on in that courtroom.
