I'm white, professional, a grandmother, Hanover County resident, Republican!!! This verdict is outrageous. It is not justice for the victim and his family. He was murdered. The defendant should have been found guilty of the most serious charge and sentenced to serve life in prison.
I agree - you can get away with murder in Powhatan County. Drink and do drugs all day, ride around with a serious gun looking for trouble and shoot someone in the back. Unbelievable!!
I don't know if the jury was racist but can assure you that all my white family and friends agree with me.

What you dont hear in the media is about the true Taliaferro family. The father of the deceased teen was shot only a couple of months ago in a drug related incident. The other person in the home was killed and was one of Powhatans largest drug dealers. Hmmm.

I think about my big brother a lot. And I miss him even more. It's kind of hard to remember him now since its been so long since I've seen him. But I still love him to death.

The accident occured when they got cought! They took a young mans life in a mulitous and very matter-of fact way. This was premeditated and they prayed upon him and murdered him! I'm Just Saying!!!
