I don't see the murder charge being dropped. There was never a question that the boys robbed him. His murder charges came afterwards. They stem from an incident he created himself. With all the black on white tension, it would be stupid for the prosecutor to drop anything.

Sadly you're probably right but I do hope Ira gets off. He'd have better off just putting a bullet through them.

If they were going to drop the charges, wouldn't they have done it by now?? He may get a lesser charge, but unfortunately I don't think he will just walk away.

Let's see.. A black man shoots a 13 month old baby in the head because the mother didn't give him enough money when he tried to rob her. Any tension there? 2 black teens beat an 88 yr old WWII vet to death. Any tension there? Why is it that there is only tension when a white man kills a black man? It's time to even up the politically correctness. If a white man says the "N" word, its sinful, but George Jefferson used to peg the word "honky" all the time way back in the day. Chris Rock is one of the most racist people on the planet, and he still does his stand-up openly.. If a white guy were to do his routine on the flip side, what would happen? People will take what you let them take.. When will it be an even playing field for everyone?

Ira will walk. There is no way that a jury of 12 of this man's peers will find him guilty of murder. Remember it will have to be a unanimous decision beyond a reasonable doubt.

A grand jury indicted him because it is a case presented only by the government. No defense is allowed.

You mark my words, he will walk.

Pray for it not to happen. I fear for my safety in Evansville already. I can't even imagine how this will change race relations. I am thinking for the bad. Maybe it's time to move.

Are you saying that you feel Ira should be convicted because black people might attack whites if he is found not guilty? That isn't what this country is about.

It's my personal opinion, however, yes he should be found guilty, but not because he is white. I watch the news, I read the papers, and I see white people walking away from murders, huge thefts, and an assortment of other crimes because they have great paid lawyers. On the other hand, I have seen a few black associates get double the time a white person does for the same crime. I am saying I hope he gets found guilty of the crime he has committed.
