I think that Gerald Hawkins the uncle of Seandell Jackson did the right thing by informing the Milwaukee Police Department that Seandell Jackson was at his son resident in Gulfport, Mississippi, and I do beleive that Mr. Hawkins should get the reward money after Seandell Jackson has been sentance, THE REWARD WAS POSTED FOR ANY ONE WITH ANY INFORMATION LEADING TO an AREST AND CONVENCTION.

Did you see him in court as they sentenced him to life without parole? Wimpering like a little girl, acting like a two year old. What a loser.
And his filthy family members yelling "I hate you!" at the grieving Potter family! What's up with that? Ghetto trash at it's worst.

Seandell Jackson is where he belongs. He'd better be grateful that he was sentenced in the U.S.

If he were in Jamaica, he'd likely have ended up with a police issued 9mm round in the head once he was captured.

If he were in Somalia, he'd likely end up beheaded in front of his family.

If he were in Pakistan, he'd have been stabbed, beaten and torched well before the cops got to him.

If he had killed a good college kid from one of the poor townships in South Africa, he'd have been given a necklace - a car tire filled with gasoline would have been put around his neck and ignited.

Seandell's Mom and family should be grateful that they can go and visit him. Nate's Mom can only put flowers on his grave.

I know this comment is late due to I have been in the hospital, but any way if Seandell Jackson was not guilty why did his family get him a bus ticket to flee to Mississippi, come on his family knew he was wanted for Murder. now the mother got on live TV screaming (that's my baby) his momma felt the same pain that Nathen Potter family felt knowing there son just died.

So for a family member or not Gerald Hawkins
done the right thing and God is always one step
of you and two steps behind, in other words Gerald you are in the middle and is protected.

That so-called apology Seandell made in court was pretty pathetic. "Sorry for my behaviour, don't take my life from me." Really? That's the best he could come up with as a last-ditch attempt at possibly being paroled one day? Life in prison is a long time when you're starting out at 19 years old and I hope this little piece of garbage lives a very long and tortured life in his filthy little prison cell. As for his family, I've never seen such a disgusting spectacle in my life - screaming, "God is the judge" at the victim's family. What the hell is that supposed to mean? Seandell Jackson and his heartless family had better pray every night for the rest of their worthless, dispicable lives that there is no God to judge him, because if there is, his punishment is going to go on for eternity - I hear the afterlife goes on forever. And just one more thing, to the mother of Seandell Jackson - your son actually is a monster. Were you in the courtroom when he was taunting and laughing at the family of the boy he murdered? Did you see him at the sentencing? And what do you have to say about all this? "Oh, my child wouldn't be involved in anything like that. He's not a monster". News flash, not only was he involved, but apparently he thought it was funny. So, way to go Mom. Nice parenting. Got anymore evil spawn you'd like to turn loose on society? You know, the Potter family didn't turn your son into what he became, YOU DID! So the next time you want to yell and scream and hurl insults at the people responsible for your son's situation, look around you at the scum you can your family and take a good, long look at yourself.

You are truly ignorant. I'm guessing you don't contribute much good to society.

First I would like to say I do feel sorry for the victims family. Second I want to make this known to everyone that is trying to judge Seandell, I know his personally he used to live with my family he was around my kids, I saw first hand the good in him. Everyone is trying to say he is a monster and no he is not,he is a young boy who made a big mistake in his life and he is paying that with his life, none of you know his story or know anything about him so it is not for you to judge him. What is sad is that the older generation needs to help the younger generation and show them wisdom show them that there is a future for them and be there for them so they don't feel alone in this world and give them hope of getting out the hood to become someone great in the world. The younger generation has lost the hope of that and look where it is getting them. So please stop bashing him and pray for everyone that has been effected by this.
