Looks like you are ahead of the game Sei. I just sent you an email to post this article and see that it is already here. Thank you so much!

I think it is terrible that they were not charged with a hate crime nor were they convicted of murder, but only manslaughter.

I would not object so much to the length of the sentence as to the charge. Beating someone to death for being gay is certainly murder, whether premeditated or not.

As for the contrition, I am not sure how to judge whether it was honest or not.

They may have apologised to the victims family,but feeling sorry after the fact,is a day late and a dollar short.

Even though I don't believe it is stated in this particular article everyone needs to know the men were convicted of MANSLAUGHTER, NOT MURDER.

This never got much mainstream coverage. Think about all the hate crimes like this that don't get the attention they deserve. Think about how many are not even reported or even pursued by the police.

For some reason my post was deleted, the one I wrote when signed in. Is it because this is the thread that has the link to the article?

They could have got life or the death penalty so why are you complaining about 15 years?
