The only racial bias here is two black men killed a white woman.
Eve Carson was a brilliant up and coming young woman who would have contributed greatly to society. These two useless individuals deserve nothing less than the death penalty. The Carson family deserve justice.

These filthy thugs should be executed. Where's the justice when they're sitting in prison with free medical,dental,food and shelter. Able to receive visits from their nasty families?Any of their offspring are probably living off the government already. They're a bunch of sub-human animals. The lawyer that defended them is a pitiful individal.

That's not the point. The point is that racism and racist exclusions are being used in NC to pick juries.

There's no argument that the defendants are guilty of a heinous crime of first degree capital murder.

I remember reading about the beautiful young lady with such a wonderful future they murdered and thinking "What a tragic loss; what a heinous crime!"

But our system of justice must come to grips with the overt racism practiced and perpetuated by our prosecutors in our courtrooms.

So what if these despicable defendants are commuted to life imprisonment instead of the death penalty? They'll never again see the light of day.
To me, life imprisonment is a penalty ten times worse than capital punishment.

If we're going to execute murderers, let's do it by law and without racist use of the jury system.

Segregation in the U.S. South (and Apartheid in South Africa) weren’t set up to harm blacks; they existed to protect Whites.

For every White person harmed, 10 negroes should equally be harmed.
