Lock them up and throw away the key. They are animals for what they did. They do not deserve to breathe free air.

"If I still had a father, he would look like Lawrence Thornton."
If not for black "youths" US crime rate would be that of Finland. Statistics prove this fact. Stop covering up crimes by race.

Knew him well, grew up eating his Tamales. Those that killed him were BLACK!!!!!!!!!! I noticed that was left out. I know most assumed it but I wanted to make sure it was known since places like the Huffington Post like to point out when someone that's black is killed by a white person, maybe it's news worthy because it is so rare and a gang of blacks killing a white person is common.
