    Prison is much to good for the likes of them. Not only should Illinois bring back the Death Penalty but it should be televised on Pay-Per-View. I would pay to watch him fry.

      Oh Leroy,

      There was a time that I would argue with you but no longer. I wholeheartedly agree with you. The Death Penalty is what these murderers deserve.

      I have sampled the white meat and it is good, no more dark meat for me.

    Appropriate name for this simian. He looks like the “missing link”.

  • Rebecca Loves Link

    He is my best friend! Leave him ALONE! He has a heart of gold and was put in a very very very difficult mental situation. Don’t judge him for his color. . he wouldn’t have judged you. I am a white 23 year old woman. He loved me. I loved him. He loved nature. He loved horses. He loved butterflies and rainbows. He loved the sweet fresh air of a beautiful 74 degree day. The numbers 74 stand for our glorious G-d. He LOVES the Lord. G-d will forgive him. I pray that you all realize this could have happened to your best friend. You don’t judge other people. You just put your head down and cry. Is it not enough that he is behind bars, away from me? away from his favorite cousins? away from his favorite park? away from his mom who is struggling and dying with cancer? away from a shoulder to cry on who would really listen? away from me? away from me… yes, that is the ultimate punishment. Leave him be and stop wishing death upon a man that never wished death upon you. he only wished for happiness and support. He said people were trying to kill him. How do you know that what he did was what you wouldn’t have done? You don’t know that! You were not there! You don’t know anything but what the media portrays. Don’t fight the black man, fight yourself for seeing the man as a black man. Peace and good day.
