He's a good boy trying to turn his life around. He has a great smile and wouldn't hurt a flea! It's all a misunderstanding! I can hear it all now!

Sure this is allowed to be

Sure this is allowed to be reported by Ms Gordon and Rev Jackson?

May be another press conference called to discredit the local media for telling us all about this since the suspect appears to be A-A.

Why use the term African American?

99% of these criminals & reprobates have NEVER been to Africa.
99% Can't carry on 10 seconds of a conversation in any of the 1800+/- Africa native languages or even 6 of the major ones.

About 90% of the USA Black population is 15+ Generations Black American not African American.

BTW: AFRICA is a Continent not a Country.
The Hyphenated _____-American term usually is preceded by a country not a Continent.

Sadly

This kid showed promise and was far from being a "thug". Don't know what went down, but this is a sad story, anyway you cut it!
