If you want justice for a black defendant in Texas, better hope your case winds up in court in D.C.

He's guilty so what if they called him a racial slur or not ! Guilty is Guilty no matter what they call you !

There were more than 3 eye witnesses, including the man's own sister (whom he shot in the chest with a shotgun, BTW) and the one of the victim's children (whom he chased down as well). He was arrested at the scene of the crime with the weapon in his hand. When the cops cuffed him, he was LAUGHING. They told him it wasn't funny, and his reply was "The B!%$# got what she deserved."
The only thing unjust about this situation is that he was given a stay. Regardless of any "racial comments" that were made (none of which were made during his criminal trial, BTW), this guy is GUILTY, he isn't denying that he's guilty, and he needs to own up to the fact that he brutally murdered 2 people in front of CHILDREN. He has priors and he had threatened (and abused) a previous girlfriend. This scum should never see the light of day again, and he should no longer be a burden to our already burdened tax system.

There was no "racial slur". The psychologist mentioned a statistic during sentencing that some took as "racist". He mentioned that, statistically speaking, black offenders who are convicted of violent crimes have a higher tendency for repeating violent behavior. Personally, I think that any violent criminal has a higher tendency to repeat, regardless of race. The addition of the "black" word doesn't change what he did or what he deserves.
