‘Don’t have no remorse’: Smirking killer mocks black victim’s family as he is sentenced to life in prison

Published

on

A Wisconsin killer mocked his victim’s family as a judge sentenced him to life in prison for the killing of a black man during a robbery.

Curtis Langlois won’t be eligible for parole in the August killing, and he was also sentenced to another 40 years in prison for attempted homicide during the same robbery, reported the Wisconsin State Journal.

The 37-year-old Langlois shot and killed 33-year-old Kendrith Young and wounded Rodney Lemon Jr. outside a 7-Eleven store during an Aug. 2 crime spree, prosecutors said.

Langlois said he and another man, Dametrius Reeves, had followed the pair from a nearby bar because he didn’t like the way Young had looked at him, and he believed the victim had a gun — which he did, but it was stowed in his car.

“When you act like you got a gun on you, and you actually do got a gun on you, and you’re moving around on the seat, what you think I’m gonna do?” Langlois said during the sentencing.

Langlois smirked and used his fingers to mimic a gun, which he pointed at the man he wounded, and called him a racial slur.

“Wish I’d have killed you,” Langlois told Lemon, and the judge briefly removed him from the courtroom.

Langlois told the court he was sorry for his own family that he was going back to prison, but he had no sympathy for his victims.

“As far as dude that I killed, I don’t have no remorse,” Langlois said. “I don’t care about it, I don’t think about it, I ain’t lost no sleep over it — nothing.”

“Long live Curt the Flirt,” he added.

Young’s mother told Langlois she was unable to forgive him, and said his crime had changed her mind about capital punishment.

“Kendrith was no angel, but he was my angel,” said his mother, Karen Young.

The 35-year-old Reeves was also charged with first-degree intentional homicide and attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and he’s scheduled to stand trial in February.

Langlois was expected to be charged in federal court on robbery and gun charges for crimes in Wausau that happened after the shootings in Madison.

The worst may be yet to come as America finally wakes up to Trump’s incompetence and cruelty

Published

on

Since Election Day 2016, America has been in a state of mourning.

Donald Trump's Independence Day speeches offered more of the almost never-ending funeral ceremonies for America's democracy, dignity and decency. Instead of trumpet-like exhortations to American greatness and goodness on the country's birthday, Trump chose to deliver horribly off-key funeral dirges.

‘I hear from psychiatrists weekly’ who warn about the president’s ‘mental incapacity’: Trump biographer

Published

on

Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio told CNN on Friday that he's been in regular contact with professional psychiatrists who believe President Donald Trump lacks the mental capabilities to handle his job.

During a panel discussion about the president's mental health, D'Antonio spilled the beans about what some experts are telling him they see in the president's behavior and speech patterns.

"I hear from psychiatrists on a weekly basis about a different measure of the president, and that's whether he suffers from mental incapacity," D'Antonio explained. "That's a very different category and goes to whether he can perform his job."

Trump’s superpower is distraction — but we finally found his kryptonite

Published

on

Donald Trump is dumb — so dumb he literally suggested on live television that scientists should explore injecting household cleaners into people's lungs to cure the coronavirus. But due to what appears to be a serious and undiagnosed personality disorder — his niece Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, suggests it's likely narcissism or sociopathy — Trump managed to stumble backwards into a strategy that works well with the 24-hour cable news ecosystem of national politics. Actually, "strategy" may be too strong a word, but it's inarguable that Trump's short attention span, impulsive nature and all-consuming corruption have meant a constant deluge of scandals and outrages, with each one knocking the last one out of the headlines.
