Can we stop pretending that the legal system can rehabilitate Blacks?
Saturday, Hollywood resident Javayne McDonald got arrested for the fourth time in eight months. Unlike the previous three occasions, a conviction on this charge could end the freedom phase of the 19-year-old McDonald’s life.
That’s because McDonald’s charged with ending another life by premeditated murder, which carries life in prison or the death penalty, by Florida statutes. According to Pembroke Pines police, the life McDonald ended belonged to 20-year-old Tyler Rowe, who died from a gunshot wound the night of May 23.
Police stated Rowe got shot in or around the Gatehouse at Pine Lake Apartments around 9:30 p.m. and got dropped off at Memorial Hospital Pembroke, where he died.
