    Last I checked the NAACP is out to prevent ones that are being treated unfair. If this young black male did this crime I really do not see the NAACP running to his rescue. Why do folks hate to see support groups that help people of color?

    Put him in prison for about 35 years. Parents did not teach him anything or he did not listen. Maybe he will learn and listen in the prison. If not, just make him an old man before he ever gets out to society again.

    Took awhile but at least one of them is off the street. Now to find the other one, who appears not to be stranger to the LEO. They didn't list the bond, hope it's high enough to keep em in.

    Don't worry the NAACP will pay his fine and then defend him in court for the only justice they believe in is saying all their own are innocent contrary to fact and photos and everyone else is guilty.FACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
