This is a tragedy!!! All these guys wanted when they came to America was a better chance in life. All they want to do is to work that jobs that fat lazy Americans don't want to do. I for one suspect some kind of right wing cover up here that is attempting to persecute this poor man. It was defnitely some American white upper class male that shot this other poor man and they are simply blaming it on this poor young hispanic male.
If anyone wants to join me, I will be starting a memorial fund for Antonio Nasario. I hope to collect enough to be able to send his remains back to Mexico since he loved his home so very much. Please Paypal your donations to buildaproperfence@thisshitwouldnthappen.com

this is a human being with friends and family that has been murdered...glad you get your jollies by delighting in the misfortune of others. Not that it should matter...but nothing was even mentioned about legality of anyone involved...which simply makes your statement ignorant and racist.

What are worried about after all it was just two Mexicans doing their thing and now we have one less Mexican on the streets and another one in jail and fixing to be deported.

Bartsdad, not to dismiss what was indeed a post lacking empathy, but the legality of these men wasn't questioned in the post. The assumption was made that these gentlemen were immigrants, but not necessarily illegal immigrants.

Bartsdad is a racist!!!!! He read that story and all he could think about was that these two young men were illegally in this country? Why? Because of their names? The photo of the one young lad?

Bartsdad, I hereby call for you to voluntarily serve 1000 hours of community service in the Nolensville Rd. area helping to clean that community up and bond with the hispanics living in the area. You need to see that these are people too, and not just another statistic.

YOU ARE AN IGNORANT RACIST!
