They say he might get off because he was "mentally ill" at the time. That he could have easily killed a white child--and PROVING it was a racist act vs mental illness will be hard to prove in this case. Dammit I wish I was on that jury-- no brainer, that guy shot a child because he was black and living in the wrong neighborhood. It's on video, but they still have to fight hard for the case, smh. Damn, do racist need to have the actual KKK "dress" and hood on to be convicted of hate crimes?? Killing kids isn't a crime anymore I guess. If the races were reversed... I think we all know the rest.

 Yea I read about this a couple days and they tried him and found him guilty. I wonder how the facts of this case affected the outcome of the verdict? Maybe because it was caught on tape?

So glad that he was found guilty!!!!!! Has anyone seen the tape of the shooting????? Now they are trying to say that he wasn't in his right mind when he shot him. He shot him in the chest went inside and got another gun and fired two more shots and Darius...... Smdh hope they throw him under the jail!!!!

I'm so glad they didn't let him walk off like everyone else. He didn't mean to kill him, who the frak does he think he's fooling?
