(UPDATED WITH VIDEO) A convicted gang member was sentenced to 25 years in prison Monday morning.

One of Denarea Swain's attorneys maintained that Swain was only part of a rap group, not a criminal gang, and asked the judge for the minimum sentenced.

But Erie County Common Pleas Judge Roger Binette said that isn't the case, sending a message that Sandusky residents deserve a safe place to live without fear of gang violence.

The 25-year-old’s repeat behavior related to activities with a Sandusky gang, particularly a shooting on Hancock Street in June 2010, earned him a 13-year sentence.

Additional charges earned him another 12 years on top of that in court Monday morning.

Earlier this month, a jury found Swain guilty of engaging in pattern for corrupt activity and participating in a criminal gang.

Jurors found him not guilty of attempted murder and felonious assault related to the Hancock Street shooting incident.

For more on this developing story and on what local officials say about gang violence, pick up a copy of Tuesday's Register.

I Judge you

This guy has a facebook page and it's open to the public. By looking and some of the wall post from his friends it dosent look like he hungout with the best Sandusky has to offer. Here is just one of post from one of his friends "THE FAM STILL da Fam...and We still WINNING!!! A couple real ni--az gone...a couple trill ni--az locked up!! Buts its all gravy....we still wavy!! EVen when we boxed up!" Oh now thats special.

 

WhatTheHeck

 Julie R........bash Binette now as being a light sentencer! Thanks Judge for putting some guts in the sentence

donutshopguy

 Thank you Judge Binette for letting the criminal element in our county know "Were mad as he!! and we are not going to take it anymore"

goofus

A spy??? You mean like Brutus, a double naught spy??

I Judge you

Yes just like Jethro,

frizzlefrap

mr. swain can also take on a rehab job ... like ..... FRY COOK, or, BRAIN SURGEON! ...... plus he will also be a true member of a gang ..... when THEY ...... BANG HIM!

Julie R.

@ WhatTheHeck: After all the dishonest, unfair and unlawful scams that Beverly McGookey and Roger Binette pulled off to cover up crimes committed by WHITE people that their attorney buds were involved in against an elderly person at the end of her life  ---- and you actually think I'm going to applaud Judge Roger Binette for sentencing some BLACK guy to a harsh 25-year prison sentence? Sorry, but I'm not that ignorant. The way I see it --- a REAL Judge follows the law ALL of the time, not just SOME of the time.

What's the difference between a "rap group member" and a "gang member."  Aren't cRappers just gang members that conduct their business to a present rhythm?

Steph0617

Who are any of you to judge anybody?????  We are human and we make mistakes, you don't know us so don't sit there and judge Denarea.  There are all these rapists and child molestors and murderers walking these streets but because he is accused of being in a gang and has a little bit of a back ground does not make it right to give him 25 years or for any of you to sit there and judge us.  Only god can judge us so grow up and keep your nasty comments to yourselves while his family and friends take it in that he wont be able to raise his children or spend time with any of us!!!!!!  And STOP being facebook stalkers!!!!

Hmm

Steph if we left all the judging to God there would be chaos.  Sorry, but a civilized society has to judge.

Steph0617

yea its sad that society judges us....u nor anybody else on here commenting on this does not know him or any of us for that matter...i'm not justifying what he did because I know it was wrong just as well as it is for him to be sitting in prison for 25 years...it's crazy how the justice system is here...somebody could be rapist or a child molestor and they wouldnt of gotten 25 years...it has happened multiple times here.  its just messed up the judicial system is f*****...excuse my language.

lugnut2511

 Steph, he was found guilty!!!! Like it or not, you commit the crime your paying somehow

Hmm

Anyone that is convicted and sentenced for a crime can always find someone who got a lesser punishment for a bigger crime.  Justy saying...

acw2013

Steph0617.. AMEN!!! Im with you 100% on your comment... EVERYBODY can quit labeling my brother as a "gangster".. DONT none you know DeNarea.. so quit speaking on his name. If my brother was a "gangster" then trust me he would of been rolling around the city of Sandusky with nice cars with espensive rims.. and would of owned his own house. I bet every last one of you people that's saying negative comments about my brother, dosn't have a clean record yourself.. You guys are going by hear say, don't NOBODY know the full story.. During trail there was NO reliable witnesses... Every police officer that spoke aganist my brother was lien.. What "gangster" do you know graduates from high school with an honors diploma, and attends college???? NONE.. If my brother was such a "gangster" he would of been a drop out, never would of played sports during jr high and high school.. Ohh and let me remind you guys SPD NEVER once found a gun in my brother's possession, & the gun they did find NEVER once had my brother's DNA on it. DeNarea is NOT A GANGSTER.. Yes he have made mistakes, but everybody makes mistakes.. no one on earth is perfect.. everybody has flaws.. WHO IS YOU TO JUDGE ANYONE???? The only person that will be doing the judging is the man above.. OHH & BLACK POINT IS NO GANG.. THEY ARE BROTHERS!!!!!!!!

Steph0617

acw I dont think that i clda said it any better... ive known narea forever and a day....we know the truth

acw2013

That is exactly what I am saying. This blog is full of nothing but racist people. Don't nobody know DeNarea like I do. I'm not going to argue with anybody. Reims only got 12 1/2 years for rape. My brother NEVER once harmed anyone. The man above have the finial say so. So everybody can quit judging DeNarea. Like I said he is NO "GANGSTER"

CaughtYOU

So you think coming on here and trying to justify what he did is going to help him?! You are his family, of course he isn't what they say he is, to you! Just because he graduated with honors (which im sure i could find out if thats actually true or not), and played sports DOES NOT mean he is not a wannabe gangster. BPM is a gang and you know that just as well as I do. Of course they are not going to call they selves a gang, gangs are illegal. If they're not a gang why do you have to get jumped in or commit a criminal act in order to be a part of them? If he truly cared about his life and education, he would have went to an out of town college, and no 'Firelands BGSU' does not constitute as an "out of town" college. IF he wanted to do more with his life, he had the opportunity to do so. It is his own fault that his children will not know him or spend time with him, as well as his family. He made his own choices. He's a grown man. I'm sure no one held a gun to his head or did something to make him feel that his life was in jeopardy and said that he had to do it. Accept that he did wrong and stop trying to justify what he did.

As a citizen of Erie County, State of Ohio, when one is charged with a crime and is duly convicted of that crime, he can, and in this case was,  judged by the Judge that heard his case.  He then may be sentenced to a prison term that falls within the statutorily proscribed limits.  If he disputes either whether his conviction or his sentence is valid for whatever reason, his recourse is with the Court of Appeals.  As of earlier today, he is a convicted felon serving a properly administered sentence.  I guess the old adage applies; If you play with fire, you're likely to get burned. 

Steph0617

regardless there is no evidence proving he did anything

wiredmama222

This should be a Ricco action for the Fed.  In case you don't know what that is (not trying to insult anyone's intelligence here) but when two or more people engage in an illegal enterprise for gain, it is considered a Ricco case. 

This fits so his "peeps" should go right down with him. 

Someone call the Feds!!!!!! 

Buff

There is also an Ohio RICO statute.  He was already convicted of that under Ohio law. 

althenaruby

25 years is excessive.  I agree that what he did was wrong but 25 years??  Man rapes a 12 year old and he gets 8 years. He had TWENTY-SIX counts of sexual battery. Man rapes a 3, 5 and 12 not just once but over a long period of time and he only gets 10 years.  Another got 4 years for killing a BABY. Raping an 8 year old gets you 2 two year sentences that they let him serve at the same time.  HOW IS THIS FAIR AND JUST?

Steph0617

althenaruby,

i agree with you all the way this crap is crazy...

lugnut2511

 Different judges and maybe the judges are now reading the past post of citizens that are tired of seeing these criminals getting awaqy with such soft sentences and electiosn for certain judges are coming up soon? Just saying

Dick Tracey

Looks like Sandusky be, sucka free, for the next 25 years.

czechurself

Not quite Dick

Restless1

From some of the comments here, Sandusky will dearly miss this upstanding citizen.

streak

We all know that Deneara and his peeps started the Black Point Mafia, so don't act like he didn't. He was involved in a gang and his rap sheet supports it more. Sandusky is a better and safer place without him in the city.

wiredmama222

To ACW 2013:  I mean absolutely NO offense, but take a page from your brother's book.  If he truly was a good student ( honor student and all), you need to hit the books more.  Look at your spelling.  You wording.  Its a dishonor to your brother  

The police were not "lien".  Don't you mean "lying"  .  If you think I am trivializing this, I am not.  I doubt, since you say is was such a fine, upstanding citizen, that he would appreciate being embarrased by you and that post. 

I don't  know if the cops lied.  I don't know your brother.  But he was found guilty of crimes under the law.  It is unfortunate that it happened but he is a grown up.  He chose the type of life he was leading. It wasn't forced upon him, it was a CHOICE.  His choice.  And now he has to pay for that choice. So don't be mad because people are criticizing it.  They are tired of being the victims of other people's choices in Sandusky.  They are tired of the crime. 

If he and his friends did not make decisions that affected others so deeply, they would be standing up for him, not tearing him down.  I hope you can understand that.  So take a lesson here and do some good. 

Stop being bitter and make a choice yourself to do some good with YOUR life.  Don't fall in with the wrong sort that makes the wrong decisions by settling things with violence and disrepect.  Maybe you can make a difference.  I bet your brother will be proud. 

Aceodrama

aint no man perfect but our creator, 25 years is too much, if this is how judges plan to get re-elected by making examples out of its citizens, you must speculate the reason behind it.

you dont get him on a attempted murder charge but say you sending him 13 years for other actions steming from the hancock st incident. how can he be guilty of one and not the other sound fishy to me.

and black point aint no gang, its a group of young men that grew up from kids to adults together. majority of em are actually related. just a simple case of people hating to see blacks sticking together.

then you got bloggers on here just talkin mess because thier life gotta suck, you figure all this time you stack to sit on here to degrade people to make yourself feel better you could actually be doing something to help bring balance to the community to help stop some of the things you talk smack about, you know

"each one teach one?" thing is its a bad apple in each batch including yours, i challenge you expose yourself and lets see how perfect you are.

RE:Aceodrama

You are a joke. These thugs have been causing this city havoc for years. They jump people and shoot at people. If you don't think they see themselves as a gang, then why do they wear hankerchiefs and all that other crap. Why do you have to committ a criminal act to be a member? How dumb do you think people are. The city of Sandusky is a safer place. Thank You Judge!

Aceodrama

you and i both know sandusky aint had a real gang at all, and it dont take a gang for you to get jumped, that happens anywhere you go, so let me guess they were all gangs any time a person got dutch piled, no matter where it was at? get out of here! appears to me you just fear what you cant understand and conquor. real families take thier bonds seriously. let me approach your "peeps" wrong, bet yall jump me! lol! and judging by your statement that makes you all a gang.

sanduskysteve

Aceodrama, I'm curious as to why you seem to think it's ok to jump people whether your in a gang or not.  And then someone else stated that you should just stay inside if you don't want to get jumped or attacked.  So, what you guys are saying is that because in some places, people are jumped, then it's ok to hold a whole city of residents in hostage to their own homes all night long if they want to feel safe???  How absolutely stupid does that make both of you sound?

The residents of Sandusky have the right to walk the streets of the town they are paying taxes to and jointly own without the fear of anything bad happening to them - jumped or mugged or shot at or killed even.  If there are two or more people, kids, teens or thugs in a group together and they are either violating the law in some way or jumping people, then it is a GANG.  Does it matter if they call themselves a gang?  I don't think so.  The actions of those "groups" is what defines what they are.

Small groups of kids can hang together without causing trouble or showing off to other groups of kids in an effort to show who's bigger or better or more powerful.  We did it when I was a kid.  Today, the attitude is that whenever two or more kids get together, the whole thing turns wrong.

Gang activity is performed by gangs. A gang isn't a gang because someone named them a gang, they are responsible for that distinction by their actions.

And Sandusky residents and taxpayers DO have the right to walk the streets at anytime day or night and feel safe.  Unfortunately, the "not gangs" gangs are preventing this from happening.

I don't care if you call him a gangster or part of a gang or whatever, if you commit a crime, you do the time.  Gang or no gang. This person is going to do just that - doens't really matter if he ws in a gang or not in a gang.

chongo

My lord, and you think you are doing anything but damage here?  first thing is first, go back to english and learn to spell and speak again...   Guilty..   I read your post and I still cannot stop laughing at how incredibly ignorant and racist you are.  I'm sure you are the same person that stands out and complains about the PO-Lice, and the white man..  lol..   good lord, if this is where our socitey is headed, then count me out..   too bad that his "graduating w/ honors" didn't rub off on you at all, because by the way your comments go, YOU NEEDED IT!

 acw:

I'm truly sorry about your brother.  I'm sorry any of this happened.  I'm sorry you're so bitter.  I'm sorry to tell you-he has a very lengthy criminal record.  He has had multiple weapons charges against him.  Murderers can graduate high school with honors and play sports, too.  

 

Everyone does make mistake, honey, everyone.  Not everyone gets arrested as many times as your brother or walks around with conceled weapons and sells drugs.  

 

You can make something good for yourself happen out of this.  Get educated and encourage education and positivity amongst all those you come in contact with.

LOL..  a group on young men that grew up together to form.. A GANG!!  what do you think a gang is, a group of people..  related or not, doesn't matter.. do the crime, do the time..   and it's got nothing to do w/ white or black..  it's amazing how the african community, i'm sorry, the under educated africian community continues to push race.  it's time to let it die, and more on towards a better society.  Just dont get bent out of shape when you see a bad apple and call it for what it is, a bad apple..  

I Judge you

Just visited the Swain boy facebook page and was surprised to see a manager from Kalahari supporting him. I will agree with Steph0617 those baby rapists and killers deserve much harsher sentences than what the received they deserved life, but the Swain boy got what he deserved.

cockynurse

Binnette has my vote, no matter what he ever runs for.  This man showed he's got quite a pair

Erie County Resident

Nice picture you have for an Avatar Aceodrama.

Just from looking at it shows your a racist person, picking on large people and white people.

Go back to school. Learn how to spell and not talk like an idiot and maybe just maybe one day your comments might be taken serious in a discussion.

 

one_sandusky_dad

Wow. It is just amazing that the race card is always used. I dont care if someone is black, white or green. I am a white male. There is good an bad in everyone. An you can have trouble in any city or any neighborhood in this city.  We dont have gangs. We have a bunch of kids to scared to fight one on one for the most part. So they jump someone to be cool. Makes them punk not a gangster. Then you also have some who will fight on a moments notice to protect themselves or be cool an not a punk. Still dont make you a gangster. Makes you normal.   Nine times out of then if your a so called victim to one of these so called gangsters you were in a place you had no business being in the first place. You dont see people getting mugged or shot at walmart.  It happens on the street. What do you think happens to make violence. Its violence going both ways. If your scared stay in the house. Stop calling kids gangsters. Stop the color issue. And stop crying. I have a gun and ready to use it on anybody even thinking of steppin on my safety. thats what you do if your scared. or stay in the house. dont sit an cry an boo hoo. its not a perfect world get over it.   you want to cry. here is something to cry about. cry when justice fails our whole community. If your a child rapist or criminal and have the money to greast the hand of the court and get a good lawyer you will get a year or two or probation. Molest two kids many times and kill one and get a few months of house arrest. Cry you were abused and get a so called shrink to grease the court an lawyer. Be this black kids who is no more special then most of us and you will get rail roaded. period. dont matter what color you are. You will get rail roaded faster then norfolk southern on busy day...  

czechurself

These groups of separate "brotherhoods" formulated in retaliation to injustice that triumphed over fairness. 

No one was looking and no one cared,  and now you pay the price for creating the environment that you live in. 

Implying that you are in search of a "better society" means squat if you give no regard to the entire group that constitutes it. 

I advise each member of this community that "If you do the crime, you do the time".  You're responsible for contributing to the negligence in the welfare or interest of any one of these individuals that now make up the Black Point Mafia (or others that I will let remain nameless since I haven't seen evidence of awareness to them).  You chose not to get involved now you wanna b.itch about it.   

To put it more plainly, take some advise from Aceodrama ..."you figure all this time you stack to sit on here to degrade people to make yourself feel better you could actually be doing something to help bring balance to the community to help stop some of the things you talk smack about, you know ..."each one teach one?" 

Gotta love that... 

I hate what these kids are doing to themselves for themselves. I know some of these kids and their hearts are pure gold.

To all of Swain's family and supporters here's a little of what has led this so called perfect upstanding student to become a burden to society!!

The tt's picture
The tt

Who am I to judge?  Well, I'm one of those taxpayers that'll be footing the bill for Daneara's (or whatever his goofy name is) cushy, work-free life for the next 25 years.  I also happen to be one of those folks who actually obeys the law, not because I'm afraid of jail, but because I understand that for society to work, we have to follow certain rules.  For someone who seems to love this jailbird, one would think you would have impressed upon him the importance of his personal civic duty to his fellow citizens. 

You call a rap sheet a mile long a "mistake?"  In what upside-down, bass-ackwards world would that be true?  A mistake is something you do without knowing it's wrong, thinking it's right.  Did your buddy really have that much chronic trouble with learning basic morals that he thought he was doing right by people?  If you know him so well, you should have been the first in line to tell him the truth!

Julie R.

Didn't Binette do this to somebody else once? Seems to me it was on the 2nd page of the SR about two or three years ago. Something about Binette saw somebody at the Sandusky Farm & Fleet and reminded him that he had a court date that afternoon to be sentenced. (can't remember what he was supposed to be sentenced for) The guy promised Binette he would be there but he never showed up so Binette then added years on to his sentence. The story in the SR said an appeal was filed and the Appeals Court ruled in favor of the guy saying Binette could not do that.  

Jack Frost

Quit complaining about how long he was sentenced. 25 years ani't that long. He will have lots of good times in there. And they will hate to leave his behind when they get out and he is still doing his 25. Don't worry the Brotherhood will take care of him.

Dick Tracey

Let's see, in 25 years his namesake will be following in daddys footsteps, and by that I don't mean an honor student with a college diploma.

I hope Mr. Swain gets out in time to at least spend one day with him, before he goes off to prison.

Oh, and btw, speaking of offspring, who will be paying baby momma to raise him now?

 Oh thats right us racist bloggers will be!

Jack Frost

It isn't racist to call a spade a spade and a punk a punk. Everyone knows how an outstanding member of society can have a record longer than his leg. Should have been in prison years ago. Lets see how much pull The Black Point Mafia has in the joint. Ohio needs 3 strike law. 3rd strike gone for life, need to get the punks off the streets and behind bars.

Centauri

"There is also an Ohio RICO statute. He was already convicted of that under Ohio law. "

@ Buff

Why the long absence from you lawyer Buff?

Buff

No reason in particular.  Tired of all the misinformation being disseminated on here.  Been busy.  Not many topics that interested me. 

Julie R.

Here's one for you, lawyer Buff:

People in Erie County are such SHEEP, aren't they? Once or twice a year a harsh sentence is given out (and it's usually a black person) and everybody starts applauding the judges and saying what a great job they're doing. Only thing is --- these aren't the cases that show the true ethics and morals of the Erie County legal system, right Buff? It's all the unknown cases that show how arrogant and corrupt they really are.

mr freeze

 see alot of ya'll don't know the real D swain like i do an for ya'll to blast on him for his transgression's is wrong who are to judge cuz i bet ya'll got members in your family thats not doing right either an u sit here an talk greasy about him but i bet if it was your son or daughter you will be defending them an saying their no criminal this young man has 25 years an you wish too down him like he's a nobody if you really care about the community stand up an find away to get are youth back stop hiding behind this computer throwing insults you see my pic i'm not hiding who i am 

SimpleEnough

Mr. Freeze, I lost you in the first sentence, and now have a splitting headache trying to decipher your post.

czechurself

@ Simple Enough... I have the advantage of being bilingual so I have translated the following post for you. 

Mr Freeze says (paraphrased):

Many of you do not know Denarea Swain as I do and for you judge him on his misconduct is inappropriate because you may also have members of your lineage that are guilty of improper conduct at some time.  As well, you might have chosen to defend those members had they faced of an extreme punishment of 25 years.  You speak disparingly of Denarea as though he were not human.   If you have sincere concern for the community then become involved and help to mentor this generation of young people rather than shield yourself and direct insults through a data processor.  I have provided a picture as not to conceal my identity.  

You may have the privilege disliking me at this time.  

SimpleEnough

czechurself, Thank you. Why didn't he just post that?

 

one_sandusky_dad

Wow. Julie R you are so right. Loved your comment. Its so true. The judges to give a harsh sentence once or twice a year to something that involves a young person or something that i consider the smaller picture. Then all the rapists, molesters, robbers and who ever has money can get a slap on the wrist for a price. What a joke. Need to re- staff this whole court system we call a justice system in erie county. Wish the bigger courts would come in an wipe out the corrupt city. But its ok. I am a law abiding citizen who has the right to carry a gun. And as the good lord is my witness i will obey the law. I will be a positive member of the community and help whoever i can. And i am also the same man that if jumped by any of these punks or gang members or whatever you call them, will lay all them to rest six feet under so there families know exactly where they are at the end of the day. I wont play any games. I will protect my family and myself. So i hope these so call gangster kids are reading these posts. You better watch who you jump. Might be the last thing you ever do..

I Judge you

baby boy goes to college, waves a gun around, then they find the gun in his room. Then Mr Wonderful shoots a few folks, goes to prison. Mr. Wonderful dosent learn his leason while in said prison, comes out and starts his weak boy game gang game again. Lil boy gets caught and now hes going to do 25 years where several men will make themselves very good "friends" ! 

crimedoesntpay

Denarea Swain and Davarius Allen went to School together and started this gang together....Davarius is doing 46 years in prison for his crimes in Akron, Ohio and now Denarea is doing 25 years...is anyone really surpised by this....who in the BPM is next????

czechurself

I recently posted this on another page but it occurred to me that most of this makes as good a point here as well: 

...I agree with one thing, in "the reality of todays life" some standards exist only in my mind.   

But I think I remember a time when people practiced values, morals defined our character, a persons conscience ruled their actions, charity was virtuous not marked by depraved indifference, entitlements were principles not provisions, men were taught to honor their women and abide by their families, and when teaching was done by precept, example and experience.   

If these are no longer customary and as we begin to remove these standards, it impacts a childs well being and advocates against the interest and welfare of an entire society.  Money isnt the requirement for providing children an education,  and each child regardless of their natural ability still deserves an equal opportunity to the same education. 

Yes, principles should be taught at home.  But a child does not grow up only in a single home.  It IS the resposibility of society that we be resposible for each individual that makes up that group.  That is the meaning of society (derived from the Latin noun socius which means: comrade, friend, ally..).  We are bound together as an entire humanity.  Society breaks down when there is a lack of social support.  Hence new complex forms of integration begin to emerge through identity formation. 

 Basically, you get what you pay for. 

There is a proverb in Kijita which says "Omwana ni wa bhone".  It means that while a child belongs to its parent(s), its upbringing belongs to a community.  Better known as "it takes a village to raise one child"....     

 

sandusky-jdubya

czechurself it takes a whole family to raise a child. it takes a whole village to send one to penitentary

I Judge you

More words of wisdom from the Swain fan club via facebook

"I love you Nar Nar; hold ya head bro.. Its not over yet, this just the beginning. Its not over until God say it is.. & all them crooked @ss hunkies downtown gon eventually have to answer to God. Just keep praying & have faith; you'll be walking soon.. f-ck them 25 yrs.. you'll be home less than tht w| God on yo side.. I love you Bra ♥ remain solid real ni--as never fold!!! Suckafree Swain

I Judge you

Here is some more treats from the swain boys fan club, oh you cant make this stuff up.

 

Lol I remember when I was little DeNarea would always take me to Cobbs ice cream diary & he ALWAYS had me say to tha lady at tha window.."give me a baby cone b-tch" lol man I miss my brother ♥ #SUCKAFREE TURTLE

streak

RE:I judge you says

The fact of the matter is Swain is a piece of crap and his rap sheet proves it more. I don't care what relatives and friends say about him, he was a piece of crap in high school and he serves no purpose to society. Have Fun in prison Swain!

Julie R.

Why did Binette handle this, anyway? I thought Binette only handled scams for the corrupt Erie County Probate Court --- like forcing property to be sold at invalid sheriff sales to cover up crimes against the elderly committed by their clone attorney buddies.  

I Judge you

Swain and Randelman are related. Swain tried to kill, and Randelman has killed. Sandusky and the whole world is much safer with these two off the streets.

I Judge you

stepham2009

 I have to agree with one_sandusky_dad abou the race card issue.......

Where does ANYONE get the idea that the color of your skin gives you a get out of jail free ticket?? Would ya'll be screaming this race BS if it had been a black detective who worked on the case, a black prosecutor who tried the case, and a black judge and jury who handed down the 25 years???

Get a life, when you run with people who are into criminal activity and you are going along with it like them then this is what you get....EVERYONE wants the police to be TOUGHER on these wanna be gang thugs in Sandusky, but when they do then they are accused of being racist. 

If that jury was REALLY CORRUPT they would have found him guilty on the MOST SERIOUS charge of attempted murder, but since the JURY decided that the prosecution didn't have enough evidence to prove he did that they found him innocent.....there goes ya'lls conspiracy theory again!! 

I have 3 bi-racial children and I SWEAR if they are EVER DUMB enough to run with trash and get themselves caught up in some mess and they try to use the race card to get out of whatever trouble they face hanging with that group I will slap the sh!t out of them!! I have ALWAYS taught my children to take responsibility for their actions and don't hang around garbage because no matter whether you are involved in whatever crap they are doing or not you are guilty by associtation.......

stepham2009

 I also wanted to say that I am praying for Mr. Swain and if there was ANYTHING at all that wasn't done right in his trial that it would come out in his appeal which I am sure if he has a decent lawyer he will get. 

And yes IF you are soooo worried about this community get out and be a positive in some of these childrens lives.....they need it!! Big Brothers and Big Sisters is a great way to mentor young people and be a positive instead of a negative in their lives

czechurself

your welcome....It's just dialect, Simple Enough. 

Different generation, different vernacular...

Remember valleyspeak?  It was so, like, the worst thing EVER!!! I mean REALLY!!!  WHATEVERRRR!!!   Oh my Gawd!!!!  Like so totally, AS IF!  Seriousy dude, like, gag me with a spoon fer sure!! But, like anyway..........!!!  

Btw, lol, this too shall pass, imo. ;)

czechurself  it takes a family to raise a child it takes a whole village to send one to the penitentary

DonTicklesNotar...

Maybe the time in the joint will help his rap career.

Kelly

I'm still trying to figure out what "talking greasy" means.

czechurself

Kelly...You take the phrase as it appears in context, and reduce it by using common synonyms to replace the words or phrases in question.  For example, talking greasy...replace "greasy" and you might get talking "dirty" ....replace dirty and you might get talking impure/ unclean/ distasteful/ disagreeable/ ill-natured/ shameful/ objectionable/ raw.....you get the idea?   I went with disparingly.

See... its very simple/ elementary/ easy....

I Judge you

Is it true that his own family are the ones that snitched on him? In return for their snitching they got paid $20 and a baby cone from Cobbs.

SimpleEnough

I Judge you, I had to laugh at that.

Secretary1

Denarea, you will remain in my prayers.  May God keep you safe! 

TuffNutts2011

Think about how many felonies you hafta commit on a daily basis before our precious constitution will allow a conviction on one of them.  Im guessing 25 felonies for every 3 charges.  Then of the 3 charges 1 conviction.  I cant blame these guys for banging.  When you look at the numbers and the court system its worth it.  Chances of getting convicted and doing a small amout of time vs living a rock star life style.  He will be back in ten or so years and prolly kill someone.  God bless the USA.

I Judge you

More offerings from the swain boy fan club, here is a direct quote from one of his family memebers.

"So I'm sitting here watching New Jack City & I was thinking like; them white mf's downtown wanna say my brother a "gangster" but he wasn't doing NOTHING like Nino Brown doing in this movie; smh #FREE SUCKAFREE SWAIN!!!!"

Oh how they hate those white people.
