"It's a dirty game"

(CNN) -- A Florida man has been charged with first-degree murder after authorities say he threw a 3-month-old boy out of a moving car on a Tampa interstate.

Richard Anthony McTear Jr., 21, was arrested Tuesday, hours after a confrontation at his former girlfriend's apartment in which he snatched the child, the Hillsborough County sheriff's office said.

A passing motorist found Emanuel Wesley Murray's body on the interstate. An autopsy determined the child died of blunt trauma to the head, the county medical examiner's office said.

Video on CNN affiliate WFLA TV showed McTear being led out of a Tampa police squad car after his arrest. He ducked his head as TV cameras surrounded him on his walk into a police building.

When asked by reporters if he had thrown the child out of the car window, McTear answered, "It's a dirty game. A dirty game."

McTear is not related to the child, said sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter. Source

And so begin the ignorant, and vicious comments on the youtubes...

Don't get me wrong. I am sickened and disgusted by this man. Very rarely do I ever feel that putting someone to death is ever warranted. But when a child is tortured/raped/murdered by an adult, I believe that the punishment should match the crime. This pathetic excuse for a human being should be exterminated.

As a black person, I always hate when vicious crimes like these are perpetrated by blacks. There's almost a begging - more like a pleading, for the person to be anything but black, before their race is confirmed. I know I'm not alone in this. I had a black studies professor proclaim that when the Scarborough rapist was on the loose, many black people were hoping that the man wasn't black. A sigh of relief passed over the black community here in Toronto when it was confirmed that the man's identity was in fact Paul Bernardo.

It's the fact that many ignorant non-blacks are automatically going to make the assumption that this is typical behaviour amongst black people, when we all know nothing could be further from the truth.

May this child find peace in the afterlife.


R.I.P. Emanuel Wesley Murray.

Well said, Miss Kitten.

I'm so angry at this man right now. I'm angry... because I'm disappointed. There's no preparing him for the nightmares he's about to endure.
