A portrait of Bobby Tillman, the 18-year-old who was stomped to death in a random act of violence over the weekend, is surrounded by classmates and friends during a vigil Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2010, in Douglasville, Ga.

Bobby Tillman's funeral is set for this morning at Siloam Church International in College Park, south of Atlanta.

Tillman was killed last Sunday in Douglasville, a working-class suburb of Atlanta. Police say Tillman, who did not know his attackers, became a target after a fight broke out among partygoers. Investigators say the fight started when a woman hit a man. The man said he would not hit the woman back but vowed to hit the next man who walked by.

Four men have been charged with murder in Tillman's death, and authorities say they are looking for other suspects. Three of the men have said they are innocent.

The people watching should

The people watching should also be charged. They were concealing a violent crime.

You just have to wonder at

You just have to wonder at how someone could grow almost to adulthood, know enough not to hit a woman, but be so stupid and out-of-control to beat an innocent man to death just to vent rage.

These people should be taken out and shot. They qualify as rabid animals.
