    • Arrest him, prosecute him, imprison him for life, definitely. But bleach him?

      I rarely, if ever, say or accuse anyone of this but Simonpure your a card carrying, cross burning, hate mongering member of the KLU KLUX KLAN!!!!!!

      • Yip…hang him on the cross and light him on fire with my race card, but only after the bleaching. He deserves nothing less.

    • @ Simonpure – your ignorance is unfortunate- you do know what causes human beings to have various shades of skin tone, don’t you? Well obviously not, or you wouldn’t be making such uneducated and nonsensical remarks!! For example…. In Africa ( which is very close to the equator BTW) the sun is hot and very intense and then add to that the vast regions of desert land and there you have it! Just like all other species of animals roaming the Earth, we adapt and evolve to suit our environment- Err go the darker skin pigment – this is a result of the human body protecting itself from the desert sun- Same reason folks from the Netherlands are so fair- it is cold there and not a lot of sun- so the folks are whiter or have less color pigment to their skin- So Mr Simon ( not so Pure) you are clearly not a very educated individual, bless your heart, you poor ignorant soul, you!! It is ok- there is a bleach bottle waiting for you when you reach your journey’s end….. the irony is that it is hot on a whole different level there ( where you are going, I mean!) so you might need some sun screen!!

    • You know I sit here and I read all the comments and all you guys are right the one thing you are wrong about just saying that he’s a devil that he deserve to be burned on the cross with his race card but I got to say I know this man personally he’s my youngest cousin I grew up with this man I knew what type of person this person was I’m not sitting here justifying anything that he’s accused of doing and if he did do this he deserve the harshest punishment we can give them but being his family member and growing up with this kid I can tell you this much he was no gangster he was no fighter he was a kid that love to play basketball but he can never stay in school I do believe that his mental state was gone but once again I’m not justifying what he’s done and if he did do it he deserve the harshest punishment but the rest of you guys maybe you should shut your mouth before you judge somebody you might want to know who this person is

  1. He was “lying in wait.” If you’re lying in wait, it’s premeditated murder. I never thought it was random. If it was random, they’d still be looking for a suspect. You play – you pay.

    • Big time AW…nothing worse. Some condone this behavior as some of the above comments express. Even though race was never mentioned, things go nasty. Gonna say it with you AW “Feel sorry for the child”. May Mom and Daughter rest in forever Peace!

  2. My heart aches for her son.I pray that justice will be served, and he will get everything he deserve for taking her life away from her only son who have to grow up and wonder why his mom had to die.That coward took someone mother,auntie and niece.Its so sad that when her son gets older and he have to go to the cemetery too look at his mother,while the killer family get to see him,touch him and still hear his voice.Dontay you are a punk that took Milan and a part of her son is dead because his mom is gone.

  3. why keep putting race into things that has nothing to do with race? no matter what color your skin is your still human. this planet needs to reboot and get rid of all problems! people want to play race cards so they don’t have to play by same rules as everyone else or whatever!
