this is bullshit. that is my brother up there he did not do anything to that child he was not even at the sight of the beating, he just showed up after it all went down. And to give someone 10yrs for not calling the police thats fucked up. America is turning to shit espcially when they are far more worst things going on out there then this. We need to justice. Im not saying what the girl did is right but for my brother to be caught up in something he had no part of and do so much time is just not fair.

There is this really cool thing called "The Appeals Process". If you think that your brother was wrongly convicted, use his right to appeal. None of us were there, so we don't know whether he did it or not.
