I think it is so sad that so many people are the VICTIMS of these young inmates be they black white or purple. They did something to be incarcerated in the first place. Stop excusing their violent, criminal behavior because they are black.

This is so sad to hear about another young black male dying in the "custody" of officers at a jail!!! But of course he was made out to seem like the bad guy, when I'm sure he did nothing in the state of TX in the first place! What's the ratio of black to white in that county?? I'm willing to bet it's 94% white and all the remaining races make up the 6%. Something NEEDS to be done so this NEVER happens again!! I'm sure his family wants the truth!
WOW--no wonder racism is still around!!! Maybe you should come check out plano before you start judging, there are actually alot of black people who live in plano! If you go on Collin County's website (where plano is located) you can search the current inmates and even read about what they did! These people, white or black, did something illegal and deserve to be in there!!! If they don't want to be restrained then maybe they need to sit back and re-evaluate their lives! Here is the link for you sweety, check out the website and you will see exactly why these people are being restrained, locked up, and treated like criminals!

yes, there are a lot of blacks in Collin Co. Good and some not so good just like whites. The jail was an overall decent place compared to Dallas Government Center where you and your kids wud be approached by crack heads on your way in to visit.... but I hav to agree with Jada. If you do what your told the jail was nice to us and even gave us extra visitation time... but if you acted like an ass then that's how you're treated!

It's funny watching blacks run around like crazed animals hunting the handful of white racists that exist in this country (while banging every white girl they can lay their hands on) while the latinos pour in by the tens of millions and set up barrios coast to coast and actively hunt them. Ironic.

I am so sorry to hear this story, my condolences to the family and friends So, many lives are taken by people who have no right to even judge anyone. Please,contact radio stations not just texas,(tom joyner) and Public Broadcasting Channels (Tavis Smiley) to get this the exposure it needs. You got to remember just becasue times are changing does no mean people are. The same people who enslaved our ancestors have children that have learned the same hate.
You dont remember you're history verry well. It was a "BLACK" man that "sold his OWN people to those "white folks"

How many crimes do you think were not committed because of him not being around to accomplish them?

I'm just glad he's not shopping under my Christmas tree this year.
