Well now lets be fair. Those guys probably didn't have any money to buy the MJ so they wanted to trade the baseball bat for it. Then there was probably a terrible accident and and the step son fell against the bat.
Reminds me of the joke about the guy accused of stabbing someone to death. During his trial he claimed it was an accident. He said he was just walking down the street cleaning his fingernails with a Bowie knife when the victim ran around a corner and accidentally impaled himself on the knife.................. 17 times.
It is used all the time.
Gee… if this paper leaned any more to the left it would be printed side ways. Let’s make saint of the sinners.

In Washington it is a capitol crime no if ands or butts if someone gets killed during the commission of a felony. It's a given that you know someone can die while they are committing a crime. So if someone dies. We fix em right up for the big nod in the sky. Could care less if they are Negroid, Latino, Asian or Caucasian. They all fry up the same. Wish Bill Cosby would chime in on this love what he has to say about the "brothers" disgracing his people. Know he would have some choice words for the mom too. Spoke at a Voc. Tech out here last week. Why do I think if it was three white boys that did that in CA the surviving scumbag would be getting executed?

I don't think the 3rd guy realizes just how lucky he is.

I don't condone the the hanging of the nooses, nor the beating of the teen. I just want to set the record straight and destroy your argument.

When a group that comprises about 15% of the population commits around 70% of the felonies in this country, mention of that fact does not constitute racism. It constitutes the truth.
Do I profile? You bet your sweet ass I do! I do it for the reason stated above. You act like a "gangsta", you are treated like one. Instant condition orange.

Opinions expressed here are based upon Michigan state law ONLY. Other state laws may differ. Know and observe your local laws.
Reverend Brown, just because the two dead BG's were shot in the back does not prove that they were fleeing and were no longer a threat. They were probably still taking turns swinging the baseball bat on the stepson's head. And to say the homeowner has no business defending his family if he has prescribed medicine in his system is ridiculous.
Mom, this is not a racist based lynching. Many states have laws that permit an accomplice to be charged with the murder of his associate(s), and they use them. Maybe it's rarely used in California, as the article indicates, but that doesn't mean it's not the law. How can you discount the fact that the son you raised to be pond scum broke into a family’s home at 4:00 a.m. and beat their son nearly to death? His two friends got what was coming to them. Your no-good son is lucky to be alive, and only charged with murder, assault, etc., but still breathing.
Hm. 4am, three people entering the home, baseball bat bludgeoning of a 19yr old man. A "drug buy" at 4am? Pretty unusual time to arrange a buy, would you say? Didn't intend to rob; only intended to buy? I would say that breaking in and wailing on the occupants with baseball bats is a strange way to identify yourself as a customer. Assuming that police records show a break-in and a 4am situation, it's hard to lend any credence to this woman's statements about her good, God-fearing son and his intentions.Hughes' mother, San Francisco schoolteacher Judy Hughes, said she believes the group didn't intend to rob the family, just buy marijuana. She called the case against her son a "legal lynching."
"Only God knows what happened in that house," she said. "But this I know: My son did not murder his childhood friends."
I have to wonder exactly what kind of information and "values" are taught in Judy Hughes' classroom.
Observation: Ms. Hughes teaches in San Francisco, and since she belongs to Rev. Amos Brown's church, it's safe to assume she lives in SF. By Google maps, Clearlake is 108 miles away. Assuming that her son lives with her (a stretch, perhaps, but - otherwise, how would she know he didn't murder his childhood friends?), being 108 miles from home at 4 am seems more than a wee bit odd to me.
No racism here: if somebody causes the death of another person in the commission of a crime, they should be charged with murder. The racism charge is BS.
Another good shoot, almost a perfect score. 1 miss.
