Slowhand, maybe if you changed your name to Fastfoot you wouldn't have so many haters
:p
Haters of me? Perish the thought. I am only mildly disliked by those heartless butchers of the English language and purveyors of stupidity. See, who says I am arrogant? LOL I don't take any of it too seriously. Don't want to get my azz kicked.

Thank God we still have our own opinions. Refreshing if you ask me that we don't all think the same...not for the time being. Hate follows fear...or is it fear follows hatred....perhaps they fear your intelligence?
I've read some of your posts and I don't always agree with you, but you have some valid points. Keep on posting them.

The rest of his life in prison "not enough for the crime"! This man should have gotten death, NO LESS. He Raped, Kidnaped and Murdered a little girl.
But maybe there is a bright side to this.
Perhaps his fellow inmates will do the same to him saving tax payers a lot of money for over the next 44 plus years.

You obviously don't understand prison culture. He will be well respected and do just fine in prison.

This is the first time I've ever read of this. Never did I see this on CNN or any news station here in NY. How horrific. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of these helpless victims and to the community....innocents taken away from many people because of these animals.

Black on white crime, especially a crime such as this doesnt get much attention by the media because once the media starts reporting the story they are assailed by the NAACP and other colored groups and accused of having a racial bias.

You people do know that are crimes out there by blacks against whites that make this one pale dont you?

Do a little research on the net.

I believe his fellow colored inmates will view him as a hero or treat him with respect.

Its the white guys I believe he will have to worry about.

Of course you are the expert...but still... from what I have seen about colored culture in america...most blacks will see this as payback for slavery and jim crow laws etc....

Its a weak excuse but its one I hear many times.

Hopefully he will be put in a tennessee prison with a majority white population but from what I have read our prisons are full of coloreds.

I think the best we can hope for is that davidson will get the needle...though he will never see it....and the others will hopefully get life. Vanessa deserves life, any girl who could sit in a room and listen to that and just go about her business needs to die.... anyone who entered that house while that was going on...including Daphne Sutton needs to die or at the very least be locked away from the rest of society. But Id rather see them dead because it makes me wretch that my tax dollars will be used to feed and clothe these sub human animals.

A curse on this cowardly jury of half-wits. May you all someday reap the "justice" you've helped sow.

He WON"T be respected by ANYONE - black, white, uniformed, un-uniformed...what not. There is an unwritten code; a language and culture all in it's own - a mini-society so-to-speak. It is quiet interesting to see the rules and code of conduct implemented by some of the world's most ruthless thugs toward one another.

Daphne Sutton dodged a bullet in more ways than one. It this hasn't been a wake up call for this dumb biatch, I don't know what will...GARBAGE!

it is not like everyone in prison is an animal. theese people have mothers, sisters, and children. so alot of them empathize with victims in cases like this. i can understand alot of criminals actions. I in know way condone robbing banks selling drugs or any of the acts that land people in prison but i understand their motivation, as for rapists and child molesters i have no sympathy, no empathy, or compassion. most incarcerated career criminals view them in the same light.

well - here we are, four years later and it doesn't appear that anyone - other than a few heroic guards - have laid a hand on 'Talvis. And of course, he is requesting a new trial based on the Judge's addiction to pain meds, but has gratefully been denied at this point.

he was originally located to a medium security satellite prison in west Tennessee, but Mr. Christian protested and Cobbins was moved to RiverBend. big mistake.

my understanding is that the medium security locale was a real snakepit with a large white population. Cobbins received death threats before he ever arrived and requested protective custody.

but he would have eventually been placed back in G-pop and, with that population and the relative lack of supervision that a medium security facility would have, i'd say Cobbins would have finally gotten what he has coming - a life of fear looking over his shoulder for the next assault that was sure to come, regularly. hopefully, assault after assault until a final brutal beating that took his worthless life.

let just hope that the same can take place at RiverBend despite the closer supervision - i'm sure there are guards at that prison who would justifiably turn their heads when any of these creatures were attacked by those with more courage than this gutless jury showed.

notice that the only jury to deliver the proper death sentence was the Knoxville Jury -- for Lemaricus Davidson, Cobbins equally evil half-brother.
