1.15 I think, that the judge allowed it, because justice should also focus on what people intent. So I think, if she wasn't in her apartment and knew that, she wouldn't had killed him.

What's done is done. If she is repentant of what she did and ask forgiveness, give it. If you also want her killed, you're doing the same mistake she did. The difference is she goes to jail while you can keep posting hate.

This is all about the Justice system...which is different for Blacks than whites. The sad news is that even the Black Judges and Prosecutors apply a different level of justice to white than Blacks....(not clear on that one but Cleveland OH is one of them). I'm sorry but the hugs from the brother was distasteful for me and the Judge was worst. It's great to forgive but this was wrong and inappropriate on many levels.

i think it's kinda hard to speak on.
If she genuanly thought it was her house then i dont even think she should go to jail. BUT if she is lying then i feel like she should be given 10 years.. But i also want to say that i dont agree with americas harsh sentencings as a whole.

If you wont to stop this kind of thing from happening when a public official is found guilty of a crime they must receive the maximum sentence allowed by law and be made to serve every second without parol.

I think the werid thing for me is that most Rapist or molester also get 10 years with being able to get out only 5 years but if someone, especially a teen, is found with weed would get 20+ years. Am I the only one that's like, that should be reverse. I would rather have a teen smoking weed than a rapist or molester being able to walking the streets.

Im not hugging the murderer of my brother sister or relative .no i want to hug my family member.that whole display was disgusting to me to see in the courtroom from botham jeans brother and the white judge or person in the world would even think to extend that courtesy to a person of color black indian arab latino or asian .white people are great actors and masters of the lie .she killed that boy because of his music for which she had complained about before and because wearing a badge makes a person who doesnt care about god makes you feel powerful add rhat with a firearm which makes you feel powerful and you think that your above the law..if she was so remorseful then why did she immediately start pushing for a refuced sentence.this devellish bitch will be out by 5 years or less .thats not justice or fairplay for a murdered man .disgraceful shameful humiliating and a complete abomination to justice the law and human rights.

I am totally ok with the young man´s reaction. If this is his way of processing and to cope with the murder of his brother, it´s up to him and it´s not up to us to judge.
However, ii find it completeley inappropriate, how the judge hugged her. This police officer was, after all, acting racist. Even if she were convinced that indeed, she was in her own apartment- the point is, that this man was doing absolutely nothing to threaten her. He was watching TV. But, as he was a black man, she felt, she had the right to kill him immediatly, without even noticing, that all of the furniture in the room had changed. To me, the hugging is more a kind of aknoledgment, that the "master race" is entiteled to a special treatment. Yes, black poeple deserve compassion and fairness. And white poeple deserve their fair share ot the justice system.

Black men, what have white women done to you? You don't stand up for your women, you glorify white women at the same time bashing your own all in the name of preference, you call your women pitbulls, and then You would actually hug a white woman after she killed your brother. Your own brother. Your brother is less important than the acceptance you need from white women. 😂😂😂

Nice point but please "white is right and black needs to step back" or "yield to the whiteness and hide your blackness" or "if you're white stick around and if your black get gonna"
I am 48 years old and nothing is changing while the colorism is still inforced. Justise is not blind and until this country truly blindfold the judges and juries this country will continue to hurt the people it was meant to help.

I agree 100%. When I hear people saying we should _abolish_ white privilege I’m usually a bit like... are you sure we shouldn’t actually _extend_ it to all races? Ovsly once everyone has it it’s not a privilege anymore so it’s just another way to abolish it. But wording is important. For instance I think we all want _no one_ being shot by the police for no reason, not everyone. Btw forgiveness is extremely important in the process of mourning a relative who was murdered. When you can’t find a way to forgive the murderer you’re going to have a much harder time recovering from your sorrow. Unfortunately sometimes it’s just impossible to forgive. Especially if justice doesn’t do its job and doesn’t sentence the murderer.

Yeah and 2 + 2 equals 4 Noah. 10 years for murder possibly 5. Sentencing guidelines were obviously unjust. Didn’t Tay K get 75 years in the same state just for being an accomplice to murder? This being white thing really works. I’m sure she’ll be out of prison before judge Kemp is promoted to Federal District court and/or vice Versa

I know Trevor has a TV show to do but stop with the nonsense. I understand why he's trying to be diplomatic. HOWEVER, that same level of compassion ISN'T given to black people. White people implore black people to forgive while they seek vengeance and punishment. The hypocrisy is astounding.

0:44 Fuck those people in the back wooping.
This is some seriously.. forgiving message. I have to admit, I was one of the angry ones. I find myself disagreeing with the victims' brother forgiving the woman. Admittedly, partially because I still don't know the reason she was in the guys house, or if she had a gun with her or the guy had one laying around.
But you give a message everybody could get behind to make the world a better place.
(Though it has its connections to one of your stand-up routines. The one where white teens shooting up a school deserve to be called terrorists as much as anyone else, and not be sugar coated saying: "He was a very confused and mentally ill young man." )
Lastly, and to be critical here. You know about the effect of "white woman's tears" and spoke about it, possibly affecting her sentence. While that might not have happened here, the way the emotion was being presented might have been because of these "white woman's tears". So I'm for treating people equally. I'm just not sure that presenting it this way is the way to go. Some people are just pure evil. I'd rather they instead, present it in the same way a black male trial is. "This is what happened. Done, next story."

Snowshowslow - 6 months ago
I think this is a beautiful analysis. But what I am missing in the broader discussion is that forgiveness is not just important to the person receiving it - it may be more important to the person giving it. The brother is allowing himself to let go of the hatred and anger so he can start to move on from this (a little). And people questioning whether he has that right should do well to remember that. As much as this incident is part of a larger cultural conversation, it is a tragedy for the Jean family first.
