They had him tried and convicted long before the trial. They are racist. There only other answer is to call a person a "Session Harper follower" because they don't care that he had a fair trial. You can tell that by their conversation on here. If a person points out issues in favor of Harper, then they must be a follower of his. To the racist people in Fort Dodge, it is just another black person off the street. That is just the tip of the iceberg. The ones putting out such anger and hatred need their own shrink.
You know white people don't believe in god, so with that said, you racist devil's, the measures you use to judge,those very same measures will be used to judge you.See you in hell crackers.

The way you talk I'd swear you didn't attend school I wouldn't talk about any other race if I were you. I grew up in Fort Dodge it was and still is so racist. The people here saying it isn't comment something about race to show they are, even while denying it. The person with the above comment can't even speak proper English. At least they are from Early obvious inferior English classes, and I'm sure more racism.

Haha your not exactly racist but have never seen a good one. This whole thing shouldn't be about race only bigots like yourself bring that up. All races do deplorable things but people like you make it a racist issue. You should be ashamed of yourself, everyone is lucky your in a town of you're own race!

If you would have gotten a good education I think you could see passed your racism. I hate to say I was brought up in Fort Dodge with parents that sound like you. Never met a good black person, probably because you wouldn't give one a chance. Luckily I don't raise my children this way (I am white by the way). If you moved back with people like yourself good luck to you I bet you're uneducated, poor and hateful.

June - It has absolutely nothing to do with race. The guy did it. All the evidence points directly to him. It's as clear-cut as a murder case gets without an actual confession.
Not sure how well you know him but I know he went to prison for a long timf for this exact crime when I was in high school. I'd say he was guilty and the reason he tried to kill her is because he wasn't going to leave a witness this time for himself to go to prison. Luckily she lived long enough to finger him, I'm sure he didn't expect this. I am not racist nor do I the reason he was sentenced was because he was black, he was guilty.

There is a lot more about her suffering that has not been released/mentioned in public. It was much worse than you can ever imagine, and he deserves everything he gets and more. It's times like this when we need the death penalty in Iowa. He's guitly, no way around it. Give him all the motions, changes of venue, and all that other pretrial crap, eventually he's gonna go to prison and die alone in a 9 by 9 foot room. Too bad the legal system doesn't revolve around the "eye for an eye" belief... rape him and tie him up and burn him to death... see how he likes it.
there's a reason we left hammurabi behind. sure, few did anything to harm another for fear of the same happening to his or herself, but by standing above hammurabi we have socially evolved into the humans we are now. it is inhumane to treat someone as they treated another, no matter the case. why stoop to his level when, as an american citizen, he deserves the right to a fair and honorable trial. now i know what your going to say to my post, "why are you defending him, it could have been your loved one, and he deserves no rights". i'm not defending him, merely reminding you of what we were and what we have becaome. in the days of hammurabi, someone caught stealing had their hands cut off, and someone caught fornicating without consent of the parents had other things done to creat some sort of recompence. he will surely go to and possibly rot in either jail or prison, depending on the judge, so let the legal system do what they do...

see, being judgemental really gets you nowhere, especially in the states. where i was raised it was a divided town, you know the african americans on one side of the tracks, everyone else on the other. but i made friends with everyone and as far as i know the town is still divided racially, but thats the african americans choice as a whole. i am only sixteen and i know the pain and suffering of the world, and would like nothing more to help it subside, but nobody listens to "kids" because we "kids" are beneath everyone else( socially, intellectually, etc., etc.). i don't know why everyone just "has" to be so idiosynchratic about the whole racial issue. now, you were " socially bashing" the man that you replied to, for being racist. that was "stooping down to his level" if you ask me. but what do i know? i'm just some stupid kid, right? i would like a reply sent to my email address if you wouldn't mind. i doubt that i shall return to this website because of all the slander.([email protected])
