He should have made a plea in
Unpublished

He should have made a plea in this case. This verdict will be use against him in the upcoming trial. This is completely transparent and so is this so-called "deliberating." What is the jury makeup? With that answer, the verdict is clear. Again, this is disgrace.

justus - Just because you are

justus - Just because you are consumed by racial hatred doesn't mean that the jury is.

I would give my right

I would give my right you-know-what to have Justus guilty and on trial for something really serious. I would try to seat an all-white jury who would see the truth and lock him/her up forever, with skinheads who REALLY DO hate all Afr-Ams. That would be a good reality byte for Justus. All us crackers who post comments would seem pretty darned gentle and enlightened compared to genuine racists.

And it's no disgrace to lock

And it's no disgrace to lock up a pervert as twisted, violent and evil as Michael Clay. He's a predator and a killer, and it's not safe to have him alive. And I don't give a rat's rear about why he's the way he is.

You're kidding. No foul

You're kidding. No foul language even hinted at, but a solemn desire for a reality check for a bigot, and somehow that's offensive to someone who clearly hates white people. Oh, right! Sorry. I just forgot it was ok to be a race-baiter from that direction.

Justus, what race do you hate

Justus, what race do you hate more? Absolutely EVERYTHING is racial to you! No blame for criminals as long as they are the right race, huh?

I still hope you gets a real

I still hope you gets a real wake-up call about what genuine racism is, ole' Justus. You throws around jargon and hate and calls people's character into question without knowing anything about them except they race, and you gets aways with it. You's creating a reality just by speaking it out the way you does, so you shouldn't be surprised that you get right back the hated and character assassination you toss out to the rest of us. You's creating hatred where there once was none.

I didn't even see a photo of

I didn't even see a photo of him, so I have no way of knowing his race. If I recall correctly, he's the one that drove into a young man going to school, without slowing down or stopping after he was hit - while on the way to the hospital after he beat up his girlfriend. He seems like a real gem. I don't care what COLOR he is or isn't - he needs to see jail time. He obviously has no care for others. Justus - that could have been someone you care for that was run over. Then how would you feel about this person? There is enough racial injustice in this world, you just minimize it by your outlandish rantings.

Did you notice that according

Did you notice that according to Justus, every black that is convicted of a crime was convicted because of a white jury? In his mind, there is not one black person guilty of anything. He has no idea what the jury makeup was, but he is just SURE it was whites. Justus thinks it's a disgrace that Michael Clay was convicted even though he deliberately ran someone down, based on a woman's eyewitness testimony. You just can't make this stuff up, you know?

A justus4 comment is like poo

A justus4 comment is like poo in a punch bowl. It doesn't fit in with anything around it. Seriously man, seek help for your persecution complex.

Unpublished

Told ya...the verdict was already present at jury selection. The next step is to allow this verdict into evidence in the murder trial and the rest is history. Again, what a disgrace!

Justus and Margot, aka

Justus and Margot, aka doofusses: How hard could it be for anyone, even black jurors, to decide this sicko was guilty of what he clearly did? I tend to cheer for being merciful, but not this time. Now, lets get him onto death row asap for torturing and killing a genuinely sweet and gentle soul, Sherry Murphy.
