Oh, for fucks sake.

Go read that article, and scroll down to look at the photos of the convicted "murderer".

Armel Gnango, 17, was found guilty of murder, attempted murder and possessing a gun to endanger life.

The court was told it was not Gnango's weapon which fired the fatal bullet but he was still responsible for the killing because he was involved in the gunfight.


Does anyone think Armel would have been convicted if his skin was a different color?

Update:
Had another thought: My heart goes out to the parents of the victim and I can't help wondering how they feel on the news - "oh, we've convicted someone of murder, but he didn't really kill your daughter and we haven't charged the person who may have..."
