After being given an opportunity to address the families of two murdered teens, one of the killers instead mockingly used the occasion to “apologize” for the deaths of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner during his sentencing hearing on Wednesday.
According to MyFoxDetroit, the bodies of the boys were found in a field after they had both been stripped of their clothes and shot execution-style.
Fredrick Young, 25, and Felando Hunter, 23, were found guilty of robbing, torturing and killing 18-year-old Jacob Kudla and 17-year-old Jourdan Bobbish in 2012, starting a “two-week rash of violence and killings that involved a total of seven men,” as reported at mLive. According to MyFoxDetroit, it all started when Young and Hunter “visited an uncle’s house, then went to a gas station looking to buy drugs.”

At the sentencing hearing, Jourdan’s mother was quoted as saying, “I have sorrow in my heart, soul and every fiber of my being today and I will carry that with me for the rest of my life here on earth.” Jacob’s mom said, “Not only did the defendant take away my son’s future,” she said. “He took away my future – my future as a mother – my future as a grandmother.”
Fredrick Young, however, showed no remorse. Mocking the families whose loved ones were murdered, he said:
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner. And I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood – and in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say hands up don’t shoot. Black lives matter – that’s it your honor.”
