    im sure jessie jackson and al sharpton are on their way from florida to condemn this senseless murder. my stopwatch is running

    • lb punk rock

      Another afro bozo with so much “potential”(end sarcasm).

    • Average Gal

      At least the “alleged” perpetrator has been arrested by the police, unlike in Florida where the murderer (with a violent criminal past of assaulting a police officer) admitted to killing an unarmed minor child and he is still walking free on the streets to kill again and has yet to be arrested and prosecuted.

  • Doug

    Robert Newton please don’t hold your breath on that. Remember that it is only white people that are racist ?????

  • Christina39

    I am surprised the Lancaster Sheriffs actually did something good.

  • c-man

    Can anyone give me ONE godd reason why this suspect should be allowed to remain alive?

    • Christina39

      I want to know why someone like that is still alive. He will get 10 years and be out for overcrowding.

      • Christina39

        To .Mel, use your real name you pig so we can sue you for profiling and you can lose that very ILLDESERVED BIG BIG PENSION YOU WILL GET FOR BEING A BIGOT.

    • Average Gal

      George Zimmerman is still alive, and he shot and killed an unarmed child who was carrying skittles and iced tea.

      • lb punk rock

        george zimmerman used self defense according to the only witness.

      • Christina39

        I can’t believe that .Mel can justify the killing because he was 6:3 and wearing a hoodie and get posted.

      • .Mel

        At 6′-3″ he was not a Child. Also He should not have been wearing a Hoodie. It makes Minorities look more intimidating and Ignorant. Geraldo was Right

  • Timothy McGarry

    He looks like he’s broken- ya know- in the head.

    • The Big Logic

      That’s a true, and very accurate statement.

  • Everyday Guy

    I will not buy Aunt Jemima anymore.

    • The Big Logic

      It’s about time you came to your senses.

    • Average Gal

      Considering you have diabetes, that is a healthy choice.

      Syrup is not intended to go on all the food that you eat…some physical exercise won’t hurt you either.

      • lb punk rock

        yeah I bet you can tell us all about that, FAT UGLY C(_)NT. LOFL

  • Hardmoney

    Did he wear a hoody during the robbery/murder? Lot of criminals wear them.

    • Average Gal

      Yes, like the KKK.

      • lb punk rock

        and just like that racist black church.

        kkk = fbi.started org.

        case closed

  • Rooney

    Christina39…….The deputies just followed the “hoodie”,.

  • Rooney

    I am so glad they caught him. Good for the Sheriff’s dept. Great job! Another piece of garbage off the streets.

    By the way, just to be clear, most young people, of all races, wear hoodies!!!

  • Rooney

    My condolences to the Keith family. The Antelope Valley is NOT a safe place to live!!!!

    • Christina39

      Nobody can be trusted in the Antelope Valley. Seriously, they have had many many problem there for a very long time. Too many changes in demographics, I think.

  • Rodman Jones

    Off with his head already! Jsut be done with it!

  • John Jason Chun

    Krap DNA from Africa!

  • MIKE

    that’s what happens when the blacks move to white areas. they bring their afropoop

  • Chuey

    I think we White folks should protest. Lets all get together and ‘retaliate’ like Louis Farrakhan warned about with Trayvon. We can march on city hall and ask for a civil rights inquiry. On second thought, never mind.

  • Chuey

    Ooops! I am Mexican
