Broderick Patterson was sentenced to life in prison for killing Eric Forrester in 2010.
Patterson and Clifton Elliott, another black male, killed Forrester execution style for the fun of it. Both Patterson and Elliot blame each other for pulling the trigger.
Patterson yelled profanity at the jury. His family told media that the justice system was to blame for not rehabilitating their violent son sooner. Members of the jury had to be escorted to their cars for fear of retaliation from Patterson’s gangbanger friends, who were present at the sentencing.
Patterson will probably be treated as a hero in prison for having killed a white man.
