The murderous lengths these blacks will go to save a relatively small amount of money on something never ceases to amaze me.
Rasean Curtis and David Skinner, both in their early 20s, will spend the rest of their lives in prison for $125 worth of marijuana.
Curtis and Skinner were found guilty on Thursday, Aug. 8, of the murder of Allen Shevrovich, who was killed nearly two years ago during a drug deal gone bad. Jurors didn’t buy the theory that Curtis fatally shot Shevrovich in self-defense to protect Skinner.
For their roles in Shevrovich’s death, Skinner, 23, was convicted of one count each of felony murder and armed robbery, while Curtis, 22, was found guilty of second-degree murder, felony murder, armed robbery and felony firearms.
Felony murder carries with it a mandatory sentence of life without the possibility of parole.
Skinner was accused of setting up the purchase of $125 worth of marijuana from Shevovich, 25, and arranging to meet with him in a car outside a home on Madison Street in Ypsilanti on Aug. 24, 2017.
