Three teens who could very well be spending decades in prison following their capture after being fingered in the murder of another teen were facing charges in court. Instead of putting their their best behavior forward, in some attempt to at the very least imply reasonable doubt, they seemed more interested in the cameras in the room.

According to WYFF-TV in South Carolina, Albert Taylor, 22, asked the judge, “What are those cameras for?”

The judge responded, saying it was the news media.

Two of the young men then took the opportunity to make a plea for followers on social media.

Taylor and Daniel Gibbs, 19, obviously got a kick out of their circumstancesw because they boldly started asking folks to hit them up on social media.

“What’s up, y’all? Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Soundcloud,” Gibbs said. Taylor followed by saying, “Follow me on Instagram, Snapchat.”

Jamari Fair, 18, was apparently the only one taking the event seriously, because he chose to remain quiet.

The irony in this, in addition to the obvious lack of recognition as to the gravity of the crime, is that this whole thing started with a teen they had issues with on social media.

The three teens had been talking with 17-year-old Kejuan Brown over a period of days and decided to meet him at Tri-City Lanes bowling alley in Esley, South Carolina. Once there, things escalated and Brown was allegedly shot to death by one of the suspects.

Witnesses saw the getaway car and notified authorities. The trio was soon after at a local store not far from the murder scene.

Each suspect is facing charges that include murder, assault and battery by a mob and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

    Young and dumb. Unfortunately, this won’t sink in until they are locked in a cell with some 6’5 dude weighing in at 275 and realize there is no way out–ever. Prayers for them

  2. Surly this must be what Hilary and Bernie mean when talking about high and lengthy incarceration rates of blacks, too bad there was no “stop and frisk” program in the vicinity this young man was murdered, I still wonder if he had his “hands up” when killed

      Yeah kind of reminds me of the white kid “affluenza teen” who killed those 4 innocent people and the paralysis of his friend when he was 16. Got away with murder and still drinking and running from the law (well not now cuz he’s locked up, where he should be). Has a total disregard for human life. Bernie or Hilary should make sure stiffer penalties for all these degenerates is their first mission once elected.

      This was my nephew that was shot and killed. So I do not appreciate the disrespect that is being directed at him. As usual, the news media does not tell the complete story. It was not KeJuan who had been arguing with the “animals” that murdered him. The argument that went down was between the suspects and a white boy that he was friends with. He came and picked up KeJuan and he just happened to get out of the car first and got shot. So the answer is “Hell No”, he did not have time to put his hands up.
