Yes I'm gonna say it. If it was 3 white men in there with a black man and he was killed, this would be a way different story. This is sickening. Who sticks up for the white people anymore? The whold situation is gotten out of hand.

Thats because white people do not stick up for their own race, unless your the KKK or another group similiar.

If it were the other way around, you would have that piece of trash Al Sharpton along with the stupid Black Man 7 here protesting. I say make an example of them pieces of crap would committed this crime. If you want to act like one, then expect to get treated like one.

The entire situation is very sad. This poor homeless alcoholic, whose crimes left no violated victims in his wake,was himself the victim of a horrendous crime.He should not have been housed with these violent felons. Get these sperm donning dregs of society off our streets so they can no longer spawn anymore monsters for our civil society to raise. Does anyone else feel that the police share some culpability in this case?

We all know that but don't seem to be able to do anything about that pest sharpton. Ok lets see the afro american people get out of this one. They will prob blame it on someone else and we're all suppose to be reminded of what the white people did to the black slaves "years" ago. If you want to get over all that "GET OVER IT" and move on. Be an american and stop using color to get what you want.

These animals need the death penalty for sure. And yes, I do question where were the guards that nite? You cannot make me believe no one heard anything. I wish it was still in the days of hanging criminals because I can guarantee you there would not be the crime that there is now. And you are also right had it been white men that had done such a cruel thing Sharpton,Jackson and all there thugs would be here. We as white people need to stand up for ourselves. I say when this goes to court we need to all show up and stand for the dead man. Does anyone know if he had any family?

I agree that we will never have peace and its all due to ignorant black folks that use the race card every time something doesn't go their way. No matter what goes wrong the first thing they'll say is " its because I'm black " and as long as you teach your children to use that lame ass excuse instead of teaching them the importance of a good education, then they'll never be more than a crack dealer or a modern day slave,washing my car, mowing my yard , cooking and serving my food

terrible injustices happen every second of every minute. but this was by far more terrible
than any injustice i think any human should endure. support and prayers are needed for his family. brian was a very loving and gentle man who had problems as do many of us do. he was never violent towards anyone.i can say this knowing without a doubt,due to the fact that he was my older brother.if people think he was homeless, no he wasnt.if people think he wasnt loved, yes he was. the trial is in process after two years, thank goodness. closure is what his family needs. trust me, more will be said about the opelousas city jail after this is done, but for now, prayers for our dear mother are needed to endure these next couple of days. thank you to all the people who have expressed their sympathy. brian was a gentle man looking for his right path in life.
