    OMG My husband and I personally knew both him and Holly. He deserves the death penalty for what he did to her and putting our lives in danger when he tried to set our apartment building on fire.

    Excuse me but why does this have to be yet another racial issue?? Just for your own information, whites and blacks have equal chances to get educated. I am white and yes I will have a great job....WHY?? Because I have been busting my tale in college for the last 5 years. Furthermore on this topic, I have many, MANY african american friends. Some are more successful than others as with caucasion people. The opportunity is out there for everyone, it's your choice to accept and follow through with it!!!! I really hope you get to see this comment. I will pray for you!!!

    You only see what you want see. Whites are treated way better than blacks and you know it. Better jobs and better education. And even if you people have good jobs like these to fine thugs you still find time to committ a murder.

    Austin, that is because in this area black account for 85-90% of all the crime. Statistics do not lie, and neither does your own eyes when you walk into any county jail or prison in this area. Sara claims that the whites get a slap on the wrist and let go in one breath and then taunts to look up the sex offender registry. Just means that different crimes are being committed by the majority of whites. Blacks still account for 85-90% of crime though, and rough that same percentage of violent crimes and theft crimes.

    Sara, I am a realist not a racist. You called yourself out, as you typically do. I never heard anything about the race until you came out with it, which always seems to be the case. I know the race card is a well played card, it even scares some people preventing them from firing certain races and giving that certain race more welfar and public assistance than any other race could ever qualify for. I guess if you are playing a good hand of race cards over and over eventually you will come out of it a winner with a nice law suit win or a fancy job for something you never even qualified for to begin with. I don't blame you one bit! I want my free ride too!

    Thank you Sara I commented on this story in June and none of these racist vultures came out. There are plenty of whites in jail. Young and old. Funny how all some people see is black

    I called out the racists and they came out in full. The only reason you see a darker side in the prison system is because all the white ones are given a slap on the wrist and then let go. Look up the sex offender registry and tell me what you see, looks pretty white to me.

    DITOS CHIRS. SARA walk in any prison system and let us know what you see. Nobody has called you anything you all do it to yourself. As far as the crime goes the murderer I death penalty. The other guy life without parole.

    There are some bad white people and black people, but it seems to me that i dont see as many white people making the news as much as other races....

    Sara, Looks like you are the only one bringing up any race issues, so the finger is pointing at you. On a side note, visit your local jail to see who fills a majority of the beds. The scenery is a little darker than this picture above paints, I can only imagine why..
