Barry Crawford, a Negro whose car was being towed by Steven Hardin, a white man, shot Hardin to death. Sure, Negroes killing whites with never a mention of hate is very common, but the sentence of Crawford was appalling; Crawford never even spent a day in prison for murder! He was sentenced to “deferred adjudication” i.e. probation.

Unfortunately, it looks like Texas lawmakers might be pulling a fast one on people by giving it’s citizens the appearance that they’re trying to rectify this outlandish state of lack of justice, while really leaving the same old problem.
A very interesting comment was made that added a great deal to this story. Nicholas Stix, the classy journalist who truly has worked hard to do what’s right in this country and aid the cause of common sense added this,
“If this report is accurate, this law will be nothing but PR. It only applies to first-degree murder, thus letting off anyone convicted of second-degree murder or manslaughter, from the get-go. And on top of that, in the spirit of the times, in which blacks and Hispanics—who commit the overwhelming majority of murders, and not just in Harris County—are routinely undercharged and underpunished, Texas authorities can in practice nullify the law simply by charging black and Hispanic killers guilty of first-degree murder with second-degree murder.
The article does, however, have one virtue: It reveals that in Harris County, a black or Hispanic can commit murder, without doing any jail time.”
