Dunbar Village Rapists Prepare for Trial

Did you see where a trial date has been set for three of the youngsters that gang-raped and tortured a 35-year old woman and her 12-year-old son back in June 2007? The incident took place in the Dunbar Village complex down in Palm Beach, Florida. Justice is slow. The trial date for Tommy Lee Poindexter, 20, Nathan Walker Jr., 18, and Avion Lawson, 15, is set for May 6, 2009.

Over a year ago, Jakaris Taylor, 18, pleaded guilty and received a 20-year sentence in exchange for his testimony.

There are still 6 of the original ten Dunbar Village suspects operating out in the streets. Hopefully karma will slapt the other six upside their heads if the criminal justice system can't get to them.

For a positive story, you might drop by Trav's Thoughts for a nice story and a link about Alade Aminu.

This case should be moving along much faster. It always amazes me how the system can beat down a victim over and over before justice prevails (if ever).

Jamie - Asante sana for the link to the story about Aminu.

Shae - It makes you wonder what they mean about 'speedy trial'. I hope that the victim and her son are doing well now...

I hope the all hang...this is sick...they should not allow these type of people to live on the earth.
