Wake up Black People! 2 murderers, one white, one black. Two different penalties. One gets life, one gets death. This system, while not perfect, is not broken but needs adjusting. The people are broken and need a drastic overhaul. This is not a random isolated act. It is premeditated and threatens all black citizens in the city. Wake up black people! Justis is not being evenly applied here.

Yes this is true 2 cases one death and one life. Hmmm...Youngstown justice system at its best. However because the jury found Bennie guilty on circumstantial evidence does not mean that he did it. They are using the guilty verdict as a submission of guilt.
Because a jury finds one guilty does not mean one is guilty.
Not showing remorse or not taking responsibility as Judge Timothy Franken so stated, why would those things happen if he states he is not guilty. To use that as a determining factor to go with the jury's recommendation of death is at best ludacris.
People please pay attention. There is something afoul in all of this.
