The media and the fake as police labled this man wrong from the start so it's no wonder this NOTHING ASS WHITE dude can walk free. This just shows that even in PAW PAW, South Haven race plays a mojor roll.

Let me ask you about that major roll.

Is it an onion roll or a kaiser roll? Can you put butter on that roll and is it better toasted?

This was an already trajic case turned even worse. Race had nothing to do with this, nor did Mr. Pounds' profession as a drug dealer. I am offended such shallow minds would insinuate race played a roll in this horrible trajedy. The defense's case rested on the MI Stae Statute on self defense and in a split second when Mr. Pounds came out of his trailer and fired two shots, this became a gun fight and the defendant was allowed to return equal deadly force. Had the defendant made the mistake of bringing a knife to a gun fight then Mr. Pounds would have been on trial for murder. The prosecutor had to rely on testimony from unreliable witness's, drug users and crack heads. Virtually none of their testimony was relied upon. The prosecutor had no other choice. It would have been helpful if the neighbors had not contaminated the crime scene prior to police investigation and stolen valuable evidence

I think this is a bunch of "BS" the jurors know it the judge knows it and anyone with common sense knows it. There is no way that a man, woman or child can come to someone else's home and murder him and call it self-defense. This is premeditated murder, they went there to kill this man,it wasn't just one person, this man was shot with three different guns. This is what the jsutice system do for you, they don't bring out all the evidence, and then they put some bullshit ass prosecutor on the case. If the shoe were on the other foot, "Ship" would be facing life in prison, and there is no way you can make me or anyone else believe otherwise. "BUT WHAT DO WE EXPECT WHEN THEY ALLOW THE KLAN TO RALLY IN FRONT OF THE CIRCUIT COURT. It is really bad that you try to convince someone that this is self-defense. This happens when you are at your home,not some else's home. That means that someone can just go to Shannon's house, kill him, and see if it will be considered self-defense. They will have a rope around your neck. Don't forget your heritage, we better stick together, because whitey is. DIRTY BASTARDS. KARMA IS A BITCH.

I am a "Friend and "BROTHER" of Kenneth Pounds. Try to be honest with yourself, if this were your bother,dad,uncle would you think that justice was served,try and weigh out the evidence and tell me how going to man's house with a gun is self-defense. I think the system has failed us all. I am not mad at the system just very disappointed, that we allow killers walk free.

It's not due process of law, when the system make excuses. It is the white man's way of doing things, they have been lying,stealing, and killing for hundreds of years and will continue to do it as long as we allow it. They make rules along the way to cover their asses. "Due process of law my ass". This is BS and you know it.You wouldn't think it was due process of law if it were one of your family members!!!!!!!!!!
