JamesT, your racial expertise has holes all through it. MLK never endorsed any party. Claiming he was a Republican is clearly speculation. Speculation makes a weak point.

WVMike Has WV law enforcement questioned these girls for transporting alcohol for under age consumption? Did these girls not commit a crime also? I wonder where the Mothers against drunk driving are. They don't seem to care if their daughters drive drunk. It sounds from testimony that these girls have done drinking in the past by their own testimony in court, and think nothing of it. As they have found out, sad things come about from too much alcohol, that is why we have laws against underage consumption. Laws that many parents ignore and let their kids slide. I am sad that parents are not watching their kids. This case is testimony to the lack of parental control. Not only with the two girls but with many of the kids that attended the party, some of which have parents in positions that warrant a higher degree of attention to their kids. The kids failed,the parents failed, law enforcement failed, these kids will really have something to talk about at their school reunions. Sad.

Stbvpride......some good points about the drinking issues not just here but everywhere. That is what needs to be the example set. All the teens including all of the boys and girls no exceptions. Some may need to get to AA or some type of counseling. Alcohol started this entire mess. Let's clean it up buy setting tough accountability. If that mean no sports for some so be it. It is means no cheering so be it.

Sure Rape is bad. I think what Royal Mayo is getting at is that it seems, by testimony, that their was some mitigating circumstances that appears to have been dismissed on this case. One part is that the Jane Doe and another girl brought Vodka to the party. Why have they not be charged since they have admitted to this crime or is that going to be called for in the Grand Jury? Where did they get it? If that alcohol was not at the party would events, after drinking, have occurred? We can debate the cognizance of Jane Doe who seemed to be functioning under her own perception when she had left party one. Then again we are limited to knowing her past by laws. I can see why some would feel that justice has not been served in this unfortunate case. The Grand Jury should dig down and find out more information, it seems that teenage drinking seems to be seen as ok in the community and some parents looked the other way. Their is too much information out there on this case to be ignored.

The " Race Card " has made many wealthy. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Frakan, ect..

Dr. Martin Luther King was a proud Republican who knew history , Truth, and Biblical theology. He lived it and died for it.

Then , we have Poverty Pimps. Capitalizing on divisive hatred. Obama's pastor Jerimiah Wright, The new Black Panthers, and The Nation of Islam are 180 degree polar opposite on Dr. Kings vision.

The past several decades, more Blacks are murdered by other Blacks. More than any hate group have EVER done. Where are the Black leaders?

Its just fine that two black thugs last week executed a baby in a stroller because the all white nieghborhood they trolled in deserved it. Yeah, NO HATE CRIME HERE !

Yet, a troubled thugged prowling a nieghborhood shot & killed is a Hate Crime in Florida. Double Standards & hipocrisy. A back lash is building and it will nOT be pretty.

Until, we get our act together and institute tough crime laws with strict sentences, we wi

If I were ever on trial for something I didn't do I would apologize too for putting people through that crap of the system. Actually I might even allow them to do what they want without contesting because it may force people to sin just by participating in the courts satanic procedures alone. The courts procedures are dark and satanic from top to bottom let alone the fact that truth has nothing to do with them.

"Rape is a despicable crime of violence.

I think that it was a crime of violence; and whether the court of public opinion tried the case; the legal system in this United States tried it also. Found delinquent as charged; I believe the term is.

If they were not tried fairly; there was a bunch of crying and apologizing at the end of the trial. What was that all about.

They apologized to the girl and her family...why??? Guilty. Right; crime of violence? Right?

wondered why they weren't getting involved. I usually hate them playing the race card but it may have been a factor. I saw race hate possibly involved. I also agree it is a fact that this whole ordeal is a joke for "justice." Never seen such a lynching regardless of race. She said, he said, does not reach reasonable doubt to begin with and internet is all about staged pictures and videos.

Kudos to the National NAACP for putting a muzzle on the yap of this loose cannon and the proverbial boot up his butt. FYI, Mr. Mayo, Malik Richards got a fair trial, represented by counsel, by the most experienced juvenille judge in Ohio. By rights, he should be doing hard time in the State Pen. You, sir demonstrate what the late Martin Luther King stated: "Nothing is worse than consiensious ignorance and sincere stupidity." You fit the description perfectly if you made the remarks attributed to you.
