    I read this story at work today and it made me sick. Beyond disgusting. I will be praying for Mr Anderson's family and friends. I hope justice is quick and severe.

    JVM led her show with this story tonight.
    What in the world would possess a human being to do something so vial and evil to another human being?
    I'm at a loss for words! I just pray for this man's family and friends.
    And hope justice is served quickly!

    Watching this now: I agree with what Jane said about the others that were with Dedmon. Teens these days are rarely without cellphones, people with cellphones are not helpless when it comes to doing something when they are witnessing a crime. It will be very upsetting if no one else is charged.

    Like Brian Richardson said, this was a lynching. This is so incredibly disturbing, its horrifying.

    Three white men pleaded guilty to federal hate crimes Thursday in connection with the 2011 death of an black man in Jackson, Miss., the Justice Department announced.

    Deryl Dedmon, John Aaron Rice and Dylan Butler each admitted to conspiracy and violating the 2009 federal hate-crimes law in last June's killing of James Craig Anderson, according to federal prosecutors. They face sentences of up to life in prison and $250,000 in fines.

    "We hope that today’s guilty pleas provide some closure to the victim’s family and to the grievously wounded community that has mourned Mr. Anderson’s death,” said Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division.

    The two women from Brandon face a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for breaking the hate crime law, while Richards faces an additional three years in prison and a $250,000 fine for concealing information about Anderson's death from investigators.

    NOT long enough; in my opinion !!!! Disgusting ... all of them.
    I am sorry your life ended in this manner, James.
    My condolences to your loved ones.
