I wonder how long it will

I wonder how long it will take before someone tries to portray these punks as victims.

Don't rush to judgement.

Don't rush to judgement. These poor guys are innocent until proven guilty. Let's wait until we have all the facts. The all white media will never tell the complete story about this incident. I have seen no pictures and have no idea what I am talking about but, if these guys are black they will never be treated fairly by the all white court system. If they are white, hang em. I'm just trying to fill in for justus. I think we should plan a march on Cherry Tree Crossing with liquor & shot guns to protest unfair treatment of my fellow strong black men.
