“A fight happened”? A 21-year old black man kills an 86 year old white man, and you say “a fight happened”? This kind of reporting is an outrage!

It’s a shame that Mr. Henry was even pulled into that situation. I belive charges should also be taken out on his so called “passenger”. I know the Henry family and this should have never happened.

We are going to pay $20K / Year, for this monster to stay alive, for the next 60 years. A lethal injection would be much better.

Mr. Henry was my landlord a few years back, his son worked with my ex-husband. Mr. Henry always had the best stories to tell! My condolences to the Henry family and anyone who ever had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Henry.

This thug should just be exterminated. If he’s willing to do this, there’s no limit to what else he’ll do! What a big bada$$, beat an old man to death. punk mfer.

stellar example of behavior and a role model for tomorrow’s generation.

About time for the posters to note what a great person he is who would never hurt a fly and always looks out for the elderly.

Hopefully, some soft witted judge will not give him another get out of jail pass and keep him incarcerated until his trial date.
