IFWT_Darius Simmons

We reported earlier this week the silent treatment Darius Simmons was receiving from the media in light of Trayvon Martin. Simmons, who was 13 years-old and taking out the trash, was shot and killed by his racist neighbor who claimed Darius had stolen from his house.

Fortunately, a judge was rational enough to take footage of the murder and sentence him to life in prison. “There should never be any light in the tunnel for you,” Judge Jeffrey A. Wagner said. It won’t bring back Darius Simmons, but at least it sends the message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated. RIP Darius Simmons.
