Uncle - While I’m sure the headline is true. I’m also sure you made it up. FR can get in trouble for that.

Just a heads up. Don’t make up or alter headlines.

Couldn't possibly be racism. Everyone knows only whites can be racist because they have all the power. < / sarc >

Fry 'em!

Anthony Lamar Pressley, 26, Kiesha LeShay Pugh, 28, and Gregory Edward Williams, 21

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now I understand. I can see the reason why the two men have such seething hatred and anger.

Imagine! Being stuck with white people names like that!

Those poor boys. Well if Ron Artest (white boy name if ever I heard one) can go to Metta World Peace - maybe these nice youngsters can get some prison/ghetto/muslim names while enjoying their stay in the State Pen.

Right?

I watched the video. Nary a word about “hate crime”.

Williams reportedly told investigators that he hated white people, and that was a partial reason for the crime.

Nothing to see here...move along!

...just curious...how can you be sure that the headline is true, and also sure that the poster made it up...? confusing, at the very least...

The mods have changed it already. Uncle’s headline was something about burning white people because of hatred.

Something - of course - the MSM would never admit or print.

My prayers go out to the victim and her family.

Great example as to why I will NEVER give up my rights under the 2A, regardless of any law(s) those numbskulls in DC come up with.

Thanks for that heads up! I did not realize that that was so. This is only my second post on FR so I didnt know the SOP.

My pleasure to help. Yeah, there are a lot of posting guidelines.

Headlines are tricky. Lots of British headlines are complete sentneces. Way too long for FR guidelines. You are allowed to chop them, but must add the complete headline in the body of the thread.

Lots of Freepers will post the headline as written but add on to it for emphasis or clarity. Use apostrophes or quotation marks if you do so.

Don’t hold back on posting. Try it more often and enjoy yourself. If you get something wrong - no big deal. It’ll get removed or corrected.

The death penalty is to protect society from these criminals killing again, does not matter what color, race, religion, sexual preference or politicals they support. Nor is it a deterrent, but it is the most sure way of preventing them from doing it again.

Not called a hate crime cuz hate crime laws were created for the purpose of putting normal people in jail for anything they say or do or don’t say or don’t do.

Even if they get the death penalty, the average length of stay on Death Row prior to execution is 13.22 years.

We’ve got men on Death Row in California who have been there since 1980.

Thirty-three years and still no closer to execution than when they arrived.

The suspects...

__________________________________________________________________

State Attorney, Bill Eddins, also says it was fueled by hate. One of the suspects says he did it because he hated white people.

The 13.22 years is for Florida. Don’t how long it is for the People’s Democratic Republic of California, but it is probably forever...
Florida needs an “Express Lane” like Texas. Hell, every state does. These folks - self confessed torturers and murders - should, after sentencing, be marched from the court room straight to the bus that will take them to execution facility and executed the same day. They confessed - no appeals needed.
But someone will claim that they’re retarded or something. As if that is an excuse.
