there are bad white people there are bad black people there are all kinds of bad people. However you do see a trend if you watch first 48 that young black men tend to be impulsive and dont seem to value life as much. I think its because they have seen so much death it becomes almost accepted. Dont get me wrong their are some sick white folks out there and they are more likely the crazy serial killer types but young black males especially under 28 that grew up in the hood with a poor education tend to be the trend on first 48. I think this guy needs counseling but also should get life with parole. I do not think he should see the outside before he is 50 years old and even then he should be assesed by medical proffesionals. On another note If you look at how few people live in Birmingham and how much crime is there its pretty astounding, honestly alabama, miss, louisina all need a serious reformation on their school systems. Having traveled down their extensively people their lack education, its pretty sad. My heart goes out to those people in this case, another sad story

A good friend of mine was killed by his roommate. He was stabbed 27 times, and dismembered. They were both white. I don't believe that race is the issue. Some people Are evil. Black, white, green, or blue. I believe this starts from conception. Unfit and uncompassionate people/parents are the issue. Its a neverending, continuous cycle, of a collapsing society.

That was the most IGNORANT statement I've ever heard. PEOPLE are disgusting for WHO they are NOT by what color they are and for you to actually write a statement like that shows how just how ignorant people can be.

Chill out lady, he was just reporting the facts, don't blame him for racial injustice. If anything, his heart was in agony and he was crying out for young black men that grow up in the ghetto.

I just watched this story on the first 48 and was very sadden by this. What a waste of life all around. My heart goes out to the young man. There are issues that only God can help him with. I prayed for him. May he find peace with God.

The After the First 48 just aired-and it is hard not to feel bad for this young man. His mother was a crack head, his father incarcerated for about the one hundredeth time. What sort of DNA do you think he was born with.?? I do not think he was born evil, more of an attachment disorder-much like many of the Russian adoptees in the US who also show psychotic tendencies.
My only racial comment is that black women are promiscuous, and seem to breed with any man who happens by. Birth Control. The concept really isn't difficult. And when you do reproduce-would it kill you to make some effort to find a man who 1)hasn't been in and out of prison and 2)has an IQ over 60, and oh yeah, is it too much to ask for you to stay off drugs while you are pregnant? Because, Davontae is the result of irresponsible procreation. He never ever should have been born.

might be because he has learned no better. Stop having kids you cannot raise with good values. how hard is it now a days to not have children that you evidently have no business raising in the first place. feel sorry for this scum..get real
Every one DESERVES love and NO ONE chooses their LOT in life! YES he was wrong! Punish him I agree but this is not a COLD HEARTED SERIAL KILLER MURDER! We are talking about an abandon child who apparently became OVERWHELMED by the fact that HIS OWN MOTHER did not see fit to be in his or his siblings lives! Even people raised in the BEST of circumstances can end up doing FAR worse for VERY LITTLE REASON other than I JUST WANTED TO FEEL WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO KILL! So yes-I feel sorry for the victims but more so for this poor young man who never really was GIVEN a chance!

Joel I totally agree with you! The young man is 18 years old and on DEATH ROW! He should receive life with parole because I think with counseling and someone who actually CARES he could turn his life around!
