As with most good news that challenges their victimhood narrative, Freepers do not react well to this news at all, and spend a lot of amusing time and effort trying anything to discount the story. It gets pretty pathetic, hehe.
blam is like the only one to evince surprise:
I’m genuinely surprised that the good guys (cops) were exonerated and the bad guys (rioters) are going to prison.Not sure what cyclotic is saying, but it sounds like a mix of MRA crap and some Stormfront mythology:
Sounds like Donte failed the beta test. (OK, someone can do better)TangibleDisgust just enjoys being smugly racist that a black guy was found guilty of something:
They said he’s not your typical rioter because he shot someone of $20 a month later. Looking at the meteoric rise in violent crime in the aftermath of the riots, I’d say little Donte is exactly the typical rioter.
I hope he enjoys the next 15 years of miserable existence.
he dindu nuffin.rightwingintelligentsia just adds another to the 'Obama pardon' list:
he was a good boy.
he was turning around his life and was going to become a famous rapper.
He’ll be pardoned just before Boobama leaves office.Organic Panic agrees - blame Obama and forget about it!
I was thinking the same thing.
He’ll be forgiven upon Obama’s final acts as president.These are far from the only Obama pardons in the rather short thread...
CodeToad suddenly has a problem with anecdotal evidence:
A sacrificial one. Just one. Not the hundreds that participated. Just one.NorthMountain wants bigger scalps!
It’s a start. The mayor should be charged with incitement to riot.Rory Calhoun agrees that the real enemy are the people who think Freddie Gray shouldn't have randomly died in the back of a police van:
The real menace is that women prosecuting the police. America,take your country back while you can.mumblypeg wants RICO actions to validate his conspiracy theories:
Well that’s refreshing news.oh8eleven knows what should happen to this angry 20-year-old who did some property damage:
Now let’s see some RICO action against the organizations that sponsor these riots, and let’s start demanding restitution to pay for the damage.
... maybe he'll "turn his life around"?bert is an idiot:
Maybe he'll just feckin' die.
The black hoodie is a certain indicator of his racist criminality
The black hoodie is the uniform of black racist criminals.
Black hoodies should be banned from American society
