    Where and how in this day and age does a kid get the attitude and mindset that allows that kinda behavior to happen?

    I can't believe the police immediately returned the pickup truck, which was the murder weapon, to the killer's family after "processing it." In any other jurisdiction that vehicle would be impounded until after the trial, or longer. I wonder if deliberately sloppy & inept police work will become part of the defense case?

    This kid ain't getting 2 life sentences for killing a Black, I can promise you, not in Mississippi. And all but 1 of the other teens who accompanied the killer on this hunt aren't being charged with anything! Yet they all beat this guy.

    And have you read the comments posted after the article? Criticisms of CNN for posting such a piece, and not having more articles about Blacks beating Whites. Welcome to the South, y'all!

    Made me absolutely sick to my stomach. The "crime" began with the manner of upbringing that would allow for that kind of thinking.

    @Stee99-

    The reason why this going on in this day of :"post "Slavery”,” post Civil War" post "Jim Crow" and the Civil Rights Movement" is racial bigotry is not something one is born with, it's taught no matter what color you are.

    Something like this happening to me is one of my biggest concerns living here in Atlanta. I was taught never to be afraid to live my life either.

    Being mugged or robbed is not something that concerns that much. But being run down and turned in to road kill or being coming "strange fruit hanging from some tree. Yes that is a concern.

    There are some pretty damaged idiots out there.

    When we look at our nations leaders making racial comments about the president what kind of example are they setting.

    I'm not surprised at all that this happened, what surprises me is that id didn't happen sooner.

    My prayers to his family. This brings back memories of the stories that my mom used to tell me about. She lost three brothers to crap like this.

    Just as people in the past came up with the hate on their own there will be future people who will come up with the hate on their own as well. It is a myth that because someone harbors this kind of hate that someone else is to blame for teaching it to them.

    In Mississippi? No chance. The police & local prosecutors are already arranging to let these thugs get off with a wrist slap. Only if the US Federal government steps in is there any chance for real justice. Left to the Mississippi "justice" system, and without intense media attention, these guys will walk. That's the history in that State. Nail the Blacks, not-guilty for the Whites.

    The real acid test for this situation, you realize, is going to be how swift and what kind of justice these assholes get. And I agree, the girls should be charged with being present....

    They were just demonstrating their racial preferences. What's the big deal?

    Last I checked two ofthese kids could each be facing a maximum double life sentence, justice will not be served unless the maximum sentence is reached. I am absolutely positive that they will be found guilty because one of them already admitted to killing him. However, since they are 18 and the crime took place in the Deep South, I can't say that the maximum sentence will be implied.

    In many cases people develop certain kinds of hate or violent behavior all on their own because of circumstances in their own lives without parents teaching it to them.

    This is not one of those cases. What's with you dude?

    I similar thing happened in Crawford, Texas back in the 1990's. Where an African man was snatched off the street and was dragged for miles, with a hang man's nose around his neck by a gang of bigots! These guys were much older then these murders.

    You need to take a course of the organs of racism and bigotry. You will find that there has been countless, studies done to buttress my statement.
    The theory of yours this is some random act, by some out of home bred bigots, it is not only stupid it's OFFESNSIVE!


    If this had happened in any other state than "OLD CONFEDERATE MISS" you just might have a valid point. That state has a very bloody past of how it has treated people of color there. There are some there who still think the "South Will Rise AGAIN". UGH!
