      I know it’s hard for some of you bigots to believe a white person committed this heinous crime….but it’s true. As a matter of fact, there were 2 out of the three thugs who did this. This was a GRADUATE student they senselessly murdered. Apparently, this guy was trying to do something productive with himself. Race doesn’t matter when it comes to crime, however, since some of these idiots who post on here enjoy bringing race up…There you go.

        No I don’t find it hard to believe. However won’t make any excuse for them. They should die for what they have done. I don’t care what color they are
