Florida “Youth” Who Murdered British Tourists: “Well since you ain’t got no money I got something for your ass”

If Obama had a son, would he look like Shawn Tyson?

A friend of an American teenager accused of killing two British tourists in 2011 said on Monday that he told her he shot the men even though they pleaded for their lives, claiming to be lost.

Shawn Tyson, 17, is accused of killing James Kouzaris and James Cooper in April of 2011. He is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and could face life in prison if convicted.

Yesterday, 18-year-old Latrece Washington testified that Tyson told her he saw the two tourists walking through a housing project in Sarasota, drunk.

Washington testified that Tyson said he intended to rob the two men, but the men said they had no money.

‘He said “Well since you ain’t got no money I got something for your ass,”’ Washington recalled Tyson saying on the day after the killings.

Tyson told Washington that the men begged for their lives and one said, ‘please let me go home, I’m lost,’ she said.

Recounted Washington: ‘He shot one of them in the side and one of them fell instantly and the other one was crying for his life. He shot him.’

Judge Rick De Furia ruled that TV cameras should not broadcast Washington’s face because of fears for her safety.

As testimony continued Monday in the second week of the trial, a portrait of Tyson began to emerge. He was 16 at the time of the shooting, was behind in school and had the world ‘Savage’ tattooed on his chest.

So are we allowed to call him a savage?

    “So are we allowed to call him a savage?”

    No. Any comment about the story at all, recitation of the facts, sorrow for the victims or thoughts about American culture in the 21st century are racist.

    Thank the sun moon and stars for Ms Washington! This turd doesn’t deserve life. He deserves a bullet.

    Notice how the police didn’t have any trouble arresting this scumbag.

    That’s all we’re demanding, that the creep who stalked and killed an innocent 17 year old kid, Trayvon Martin — for no reason in the world — be arrested and forced to defend himself to a jury of his peers. Nothing un-Amercan about that.

    I’m sorry that Trayvon died, but he can hardly be called innocent if he’s on top of someone beating him. And being beaten is a good ‘reason in the world’ to defend your self.

    And if responding ‘he looks black’ to the question ‘Is he black or Hispanic’ asked by the dispatcher, yet totally ignored by the main stream media is any reason to claim Zimmermann is racist, then surely the gang language and actual pictures of Travon (not the 12year old pics shown by the media) can be used to describe the actions He took that led to his death.
