The sad thing is he most likely won't be raped or be harmed in any way due to the fact that all he's being sent to is a family reunion!!! I'm sure his Daddy, Uncles and a lot of his "cuz's" are waiting to welcome him with open arms and protect him!!! I mean all he did was kill a white child,and this site alone is proof that's no cause to ruffle any feathers!!!! Its a d*mn shame!!!!

Nah I'm pretty sure he's gonna get raped in the big people prison. Haha he said he would be taken to a family reunion. That's funny as hell. Remember there's always someone out there bigger than u. I only mentioned that because not all of his people will be able to save and protect him.
