I just want to say that I hope Tyeric gets everything he deserves on Monday at the trial. God, do I wish we had the death penalty! Eye for an Eye. Everyone keeps saying Darby was racist, but who shot who????? I hope he rots in hell.

<quoted text>Why would Darby go after the person who was not driving nor the owner of the car?????? He should have just wrote down the plate number and could police from cell or pay phone or something am pretty sure the cops would have got it from there. But Darby and his buddys start raming the car making their damages even worst then what they were.
you can say what if all you want-what is tyeric wasnt suck a fu**in thug and killed somebody for no reason??????

I am pretty sure he is playing the whole racist thing in court but if he does get off there is this thing called karma.

Your right Karma is a bitch which is why he is in jail in the first place. He shouldn't be in there at all, he was defending himself. Just because he is a young black male does not make him a thug.

Court today was about the defense trying to get Tyerics bail reduced from $500k to $50k, and to have him released until his hearing.....can anyone say "FLIGHT RISK"??? How about "DANGER TO SOCIETY"? Haven't had the latest update - so don't know if it was granted with stipulations or not. The court had asked for peoples names and general address (like two major cross streets) that would feel afraid if Tyeric is released on bail....PLEASE...if you live in MN, you can even email it into them at citizeninfo@co.hennepin.mn.us.
Ms. Martha Dimick is the prosecuting attorney. I urge you to attend the court proceedings if you can. We cannot let anyone loose sight of Darby's life being TAKEN AWAY. And regardless of the circumstances, or any remorse, Tyeric needs to pay the price for this crime.

Oh please don't yaw have something better to do than think the worst of people. Tyeric is not any of your thugs in MN, he is not a murderer, or a flight risk. This is a man with a family who made an error in judgement do to a drunken night with family. He did not intentionally kill that man! In this historic day and age it is a disgrace that people still can't open there eyes to the fact that black people actually feel fear. Well we do, Darby was wrong and so was Ty, but if he feared for his life there is no one to say he didn't. None of you were in his shoes to know what this young man felt. People are hurt by guns yeah, but they are also hurt by other things as well. I put nothing past anyone and if I was in the same situation and feared for my life I would have done the same thing; and so would you. Darby wasn't no angel and that is a common fact, so don't try and make it seem as if he is. Show responsibility to the situation and use the senses that god has given you to understand that no one can decide when a person is in fear of there life but that person.

Darby was a family man he was a new father and he was shot in the chest by Tyeric!!!! So you call it self defense I call it murder!!!! I was raised if you carry a gun it better be for HUNTING and that is what TYERIC was doing when he left his aunties house. Why would you go out drinking and partying w/a gun???? White people feel fear too we have to look out for people like TYERIC !!!!! JAIL TYERIC !!!!!! WE WANT JUSTICE !!!!!

Whoop ti doo, I've never been in trouble either, and you comments are out of line. A person's parents have nothing to do with there childs choices of what to do and what not to do; no parent raises there child to hurt other people. As a mother, sister, daughter, aunt, and all around human; I don't encourage anyone in my presence to do harm to anyone. I will tell anyone to defend themselves including my own enemy, but its not right to judge someone that you do not know, or a situation were you don't know all the facts. THat's what Darby did and we see the outcome of that.
