    Texas teen bludgeoned, burned to death in possible hate crime

    [QUOTE]

    Joshua Wilkerson, 18, was missing for 24 hours from his school in Pearland, Texas, when a man who was helping with the hunt told authorities he beat the victim to death and burned his body after the victim made sexual advances toward him.

    Crazy fool. He'll probably get life in prison. Another creep that we'll have to support for the rest of his life with our tax dollars.

    If he is guilty of what he claims he did, then, yes, ditto what AvadaKedavra wrote.

    Remember, Texas is a death penalty state. Hopefully that's what this guy will get. If he did what he said he did he certainly deserves it.

    Maybe a test case for a 'gay panic' defense vs the Mathew Shepard Act, eh?

    The guy sounds like a sociopath. He's smiling in his mug shot. He went to the movies that afternoon. The victim had his arms and feet bound.

    His story just doesn't add up. This was no "gay panic" killing.

    The gay panic defense still works in the US, and I suspect a Texas jury would be more sympathetic to such a claim than juries in Blue states. We should follow this.
