Kind of a big deal.

I’ve been following this case since it happened. I don’t remember if any of us talked about it but here ya go.

I too have been following this from Day 1. Call this a victory over all the Angry White Men in Georgia.

Seriously, you can argue all you want about how the law was technically upheld, but this was a decent kid, with a bright future, and a bunch of pissed off, old white rednecks (who probably despise the idea of an african-american kid with a bright future) wanted no part of him "getting away with it."

Ever seen any tv interviews by the prosecutor in this case? I didn't even recognize the guy without the white sheet over his head. The whole thing just disgusted me...and then the asshole appeals the court decision today?!?!? Unbelievable.

Needless to say, I don't miss the south that much...

In all fairness, where I lived in Virginia is slightly less racist than the deep south of Georgia/Mississsippi/'Bama

But then again, that's like saying AWM has "slightly more career ambition" than his fellow coworkers at AIU

Yeah, I remember when the kid was on OTL on ESPN, what a shame...at least he's out now and bangs a ton of white chicks

Where the white women at?
