  1. My hope is that this neanderthal gets killed in prison. I hate it when they blame it on their past, you're one black life that doesn't matter.

  2. Yeah, hundreds of thousands of other people have had “little guidance in their early lives” and been homeless and they don’t take a baseball bat to another human being like this pointless pos did! And I don’t agree that ALL lives matter. This thug’s life doesn’t matter nor do the lives of other parasites like him.
