  1. But black rapists get kid glove treatment by Mr. Kenneally’s BLM-State’s Atty’s Office.

  2. He has the look of a dullard about him – no surprise.

    Room reserved at the Graybar Hotel – enjoy your stay !

  3. Yeah he looks real scary, pimples and all—

    Id be more interested in seeing if he has prior convictions for felonies, or physical assaults, as the 5 year sentence seems harsh for a “bar fight”–

    the head kick is probably what did him in and it borders on attempted murder would be my guess, accounting for the harsh sentence if no other mitigating factors.

    Judges are going light on crime these days, (no/low bail, early release, charges dropped, probation) so a real prison sentence for a non child sex crime around here seems rare.

    Maybe it was a judges kid he beat up.

  4. Maybe it was a fake hate crime……. somebody put a move on him and he fought back and Kenneally went nuts and threw the book at the kid !

  5. I personally find nothing wrong with putting the boots to someone in a bar fight as I did so many times in the sixty’s and seventies.

    While Bouncing at several Roadhouse’s I provided many ‘Full body massages’* .

    * Steel toe boots based

  6. Yet black muggers only get 2 years.

    Which is really just a year.

  7. In prison he’ll become the sexual toy of the black gangs that run the place.
