People are so racist it's crazy. I'm a white birch and I find it wrong that he got 45 years just for the fact that people proven without a doubt of doing things like that have gotten only half that time if any at all before and he has too much lack of evidence. And I hate to say it cause I have two daughters of my own, but when it comes to the fourteen year old girl, he coulda thought she was an adult or close to. When I was fourteen men thought I was seventeen eighteen, I just never had sex with any of them like that girl did. Also, ALOT men in their twenties mess with teenagers sadly. I've had too many to count try to mess with me and friends. Ands that's men of all races. I don't know if he innocent or not, but he shouldn't have that much time with so much lack of evidence. Its wrong in so many ways and makes me further question judges, police, the system in General. Innocent until PROVEN guilty. Not quilty for all cases that aren't proven just because one case was. People can get mad and hate my comment or be racist with me all they want. ..I don't fcking care. If people use a little common sense and get over their selves with jealousy, racism or just looking to put someone down or argue, then u would see me and all the other people who have said this have a point. There's no denying it. I'm not saying it's right cause I Damn sure didn't do it since I know my place, but Damn near every fourteen fifteen year old girl I've ever met messes with older men. Its so common it's ridiculous. But nobody points that out. Point, quit looking for a fight off of other people's struggles. Everyone needs to grow up and look at facts. Not saying he innocent cause I won't there, but if u were put in his place but actually innocent, would u want people bashing u just cause of all their own selfish reasons? It has to be selfish reasons if people ignore the emptiness of all the lack of evidence besides a fourteen year girl at the time.
