A 21 year old Brooklyn man who was convicted for shooting another man over a weave was sentenced to 23 years in prison.

In 2011, Dennzel Holder killed Shawn Williams with three shots.

The Daily News reports:

“It started with a group of women who had a foolish argument over a hair weave,” said Supreme Court Justice Alan Marrus. “What a senseless tragedy.”

The young ladies got into it when one made a comment about inappropriateness of hair extensions and the victim’s girlfriend – walking just ahead down a Crown Heights shopping strip – took offense. After bottles and punches were thrown, her rival summoned her boyfriend, Holder.

A jury cleared Holder of murder in February, opting to convict him of manslaughter instead.

    Cave n!@@ers get more delusional and depraved by the day, slitting a girls throat because she won’t go to the prom with you and tying your own grandfather to the bumper of a truck and dragging him to death. Just a few of the many savage acts these neanderthal apes commit everyday in this f^cked up and racist country. These pasty face baboons claim they are civilized, not!!
