. If this is really one of his boys.....you guys are a bunch of wannabe, soft ass, p#ssies. If you guys were so f#ckin tough you would've picked up the older brother instead of praying on some weak kid....and as far as this mystery man, come visit me and my boys in Chicago you would be f#cked in a second .....Morte Per Tutti Fracio's

How can ppl defend a guy who ordered a hit on a 15 yr old innocent kid? Smh. It's not "gangster" to kill somebody over $1200..I'm sure they all were bottom gals in prison tho so they got theirs in the long run as well. Good riddens to Hollywood, he is a piece of shit wanna be gangster who grew up with a pool in his backyard and choose the lifestyle he lead..I don't care what his side of the story is Smh it ended with a murder of a kid. You defenders need to show some compassion for Nick. And then go pray!!

You see, the thing is that JJH didn't order the kid to be killed. The 'ordering' was presumed by public because of the movie, extensive media coverage and the other defendants trying to pass the blame on him in anticipation of reduced sentence. JJH initiated the kidnapping therefore the Markowitz family believed that he was the 'mastermind of the murder'. What evidence there is that JJH 'ordered' the hit?

Yep she's a murder groopie proven by her statement, the sad part is she will always believe that he didn't murder a baby an at 15 he was a baby, he set all events in motion if not for his directe involvement no one would be dead. Look at the whole picture.

Jesse didn't kill the kid. He just kidnapped him. How does that make him a murderer? If the jury were convinced he ordered the murder they would have sentenced him to death (what he was facing). But they recommended different sentence. Why? Because it was not proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Jesse ordered the hit. And the jury were afraid that if they would find him not guilty, the public would make their lives miserable and they feared the Markowitzes would order a hit on them. We all know that it was too much publicity and the movie alpha dog that affected the outcome. Zonen should rot in jail as he was the initiator of the drama and put the wheels in motion making JJH guilty before a fair trial. He probably forgot that KARMA is a bitch and sooner or later will get him. I can't wait for old prick Zonen to suffer for causing an innocent man - JJH to go to jail.

Jesse James Hollywood was guilty even before he put his foot in the courtroom!!! Aren't you people scared that our Justice System failed??? Aren't you afraid that the presumed guilt, before the trial may happen to you or your family member??? Think twice before you say anything negative about JJH.

I didn't mean to sound insensitive, by no way did that kid deserve that he had his whole life ahead of him, the point I was trying make was I think this all was not supposed to happen ya knw they didn't set out to kidnap The kid, n none of them had the sense at the end like how many ppl see the kid with them,they were not gunna get away with it if they just would have let him go smh I mean he was seen by several witnesses partying n cohorting with them they wouldn't evn had a case if they let him go JJ didnt ask for ransom smh just stupid kids who got scared n made a big mistake, n why didn't nick run away by accounts from witnesses he had several chances to run away but didn't I know he was nieve but with each passing day wouldn't evn the most nieve person wanna go home smh this poor kid was probably having fun hanging out kicking it im sure like in movie he wouldn't have said nething, n his brother ben by looking at his pics he just looks like a slim ball, they all call JJ a punk but wat about ben if it wasnt for Ben none of this takes place all them kids woulda grew up hung out but they just made a bad choice none of them are hitters not even that fag Ryan Hoyt, Nick woulda probly been friends with these guys till this day smh his mother is a loving good hearted woman a great parent my heart goes out to her but at end of day none of us no the truth truth we just watched the movie n got info off the net
