The young men who were involved in this case should get the death penalty and Rev Strong did not deserve to be killed in any manner, but the truth is the truth. His lifestyle may have led to his murder.This was not a normal robbery killing. This was torture. The normal profile of a gang style killing is with a gun. Knives and blunt force trama was used along with this victim being gagged and bound.
In other words this was a rage killing.
Rev Strong was a nice person but if you look in his past there were things that occurred as far back as 30 years ago that could change your minds.
