If these individuals are found guilty for participating and/or contributing to the death of this innocent man, they should receive the maximum sentence for killing him.

This is a sad situation and ignorance has resulted in the death of an innocent third party not related to the incident.

Heck, if you look at the Union County court records, quite a few of these guys, including the decedent P.A. Mclendon were drug dealers. Hope they fry them all until they are nice and crispy.

I think the question of race is a good one. I would be interested to know if all thirteen of the individuals involved were of the same race. I know that the ten men accused of killing Tony Lorin Blakeney could not be white and Mr. Blakeney African American or it would have been mentioned. If they are not of the same race, that brings up a different kind of racism by the news media.

To check my suspicions, I have been surfing and have found that the missing man, the man arrested in his disappearance, and the ten men arrested in the mob beating are all African Americans. I can only assume that the victim was also African American or there would be massive outrage and a cry of race violence in every news outlet in the country.

Not a bad assessment. I've not seen this story on the tv. It is quite an interesting story given that someone was "accidentally" killed by the killers thinking he was someone he was not.

to jackson jones, it don't matter what color they are, it's just the simple fact that they did a selfish and a hiddious act upon man. What was done didn't have to be done in the way that it was. Tony should be alive just as well as they are alive. So what color are you white? Shut the hell up
