This is outrageous! The killers have made all whites seem as if we are against blacks and want to harm them. This is a LIE. I love and adore my black friends and I have more black friends than white friends. For the victim's family I am truly sorry for the violence done based on the evil intentions of KKK or Illuminati or whatever they claim guided them. I am sorry you will have to relive this tragic event while this case is reopened. I pray for y'all's strength and healing.
