MCMILLIAN MURDER

Killer’s Sisters Back Up “Gay Panic” Defense In Murder Of Marco McMillian

mcmillian-reedMore details have emerged in the murder of Marco McMillian, a 34-year-old openly gay politician found dead near the Mississippi River levee two weeks ago.

The man accused of killing McMillian, 22-year-old Lawrence Reed, claims he killed the mayoral candidate after he made unwanted advances on him.

Reed’s roommate, Kamillia Evans, told ABC24.com that if Reed did it “he was defending himself,” something his sisters also claim:

However, the sisters say Reed told them everything. Just after midnight on February 26, their youngest sister received a panicked call from Reed. One sister says, “He called at 12:11am and he told her that the dude (McMillian) was trying to rape him. He was exposing himself to him, playing with himself, telling him to do things and then he’ll take him home.”

He told the girl he was on a back road and couldn’t get away. A few minutes later a bruised, bloody and broken Reed showed up at their back porch. “He just looked like he had been through war…” one sister describes, “He was standing in the back, back here, telling God to forgive him. He didn’t mean to do it, and he was saying that he just wanted to die.”

She says when Reed couldn’t get away from McMillian, he used the chain on his wallet to choke the 200 pound politician. “He was shaking real hard, he was crying real hard, he was circling, begging for somebody to talk to him.”

The sisters say Reed was inconsolable and, they believe, suicidal. “When he left out, he just drove out, sped up and hit a white truck head on.”

The FBI is currently investigating the murder of Marco McMillian as a possible hate crime.

      Oh yes, I’m certain that the killer’s family and best friends are the most reliable witnesses to the events. Lordy, they would NEVER lie to help their brother, would they.

      The police need to look into an intimate relationship between the two men. I think McMillan told Reed that he was in love with him and Reed freaked out. Seeing as some men can have gay sex and not consider themselves gay hut if love and emotions come into play..they can’t handle it. The severe “overkill” in how McMillan was killed shows this.

      If this little turd of a “kid” had to choke, burn, and then DRAG Mr. MacMillian to his death… sorry Uncle Jemima, that’s not panic kickin’ your butt, it’s pure hate! Life with no parole, Buster Brown!

      I wondered how long it would take for one person to make a remark in regard to Lawrence Reed’s ethnic background. Not long at all. It’s always: not long at all.

      So he was able to call his sister to claim somebody was trying to rape him…but apparently couldn’t dial 911?

      Yeah, nice try.

      This sounds like a fabricated story to help get their brother out of trouble. I agree with Darson–more than likely they were in an intimate relationship together, and Reed freaked out at the thought of being forced out of the closet (if your boyfriend / partner is the mayor, it is harder to hide it).

      I agree with everyone else. This guy found murder preferable to being “exposed” as gay.

      Mississippi KILLS another Democrat, ‘dem So Baptist must keep together, God’S WORDS. Kill the Queer!

      Another case just like the 2 guys who ROBBED & MURDERED Matthew Shepard. Bring on the evil gay rape defense. This family is now wearing the Pink Sheets , where the Klan has white sheets, Don’t want to mix up hate groups.

      Just had to strangle the man to death to make sure he cant tell his side. Killing with your hands is a violent bloody messy, but not too broken to blame the victim.

      MAYBE A VICTIM Was murdered by the closeted murdering queer to shut him up. The gay rape defense is as thin as smoke and as substantial. The judge should never ALLOW a gay baiting defense.

      “Uncle Jemima, “‘dem So Baptist,” comparing a black family to the Ku Klux Klan? From an intellectual standpoint, why is the offender’s race being brought into question and in such an ugly fashion? I would be horribly remiss, as a gay, black man, to willfully ignore a cross-section of the African-American community that is vocal in regard to their homophobia, just as I would be terribly remiss, as a decent, gay, human being, to ignore a cross-section of the Gay community that is vocal in regard to their own deep-seated racism.

      I would hope, as a decent human being, that we would all be above such cancerous thoughts. A bright, young man’s life has been taken-away in a horrific crime, and all some of you can do is to is bring his ethnicity into this awful tragedy instead of focusing on what can be done to eradicate violence and homophobia wherever it occurs.

      The gay panic defense is the number one excuse to assault and murder us. It has the highest success rates on murders because dead people tell no tails.

      Since the victim is dead, it could be the reverse – he was murdered when he didn’t want to have sex with the killer. Never assume the survivor is the innocent one.

      @Charles175: ANY assault and battery or murder cases including gay bashing cases, unless there is a plea bargain (which happens in most criminal cases) juries decide after hearing both prosecutor and defense lawyer. Juries decide what is reasonable & excess because each case is different and must be judged individually. As known with murder cases, there is Murder 1, Murder 2 and Manslaughter which is a jury topic. If a defense lawyer in a gay bashing case wants to raise a crime the gay did such as harassment, indecent exposure, etc. before man reacted violently, then that must be regarded in deciding verdict. Prosecutors can argue why they think it was excess force and defense lawyer can argue why it was justified force. Jury decides if it’s justified or excess force. A jury can acquit or if they convict, they can convict a person on lesser charge.

      A rebuttal people make is that gay bashers will sometimes say things to justify their deeds such as saying the homosexual committed indecent exposure, harassment, stalking and so on and that it’s the gay basher’s side of story. Yes-but just as gay basher’s have interest to justify their deeds, gay bashing victims have interest to make themselves look like innocent victims. We don’t always know the other side of story and that is usually different from what homosexual says happened. Again if it’s true homosexual committed indecent exposure, harassment, stalking, etc. before men reacted violently, then the fact the homosexual committed a crime before he was bashed must be decided by jury in deciding if gay basher(s) used reasonable or excess force. I would rather have a case where a jury decides if a man’s reaction to bashing or killing a homosexual is justified or excess vs. the man doesn’t do enough and the gay does something worse. Most men and boys who are victims of gays usu. won’t call cops to report that a gay is committing indecent exposure, harassment or in worst cases molestation until some1 reacts violently and bashes the gay.

      @jaack: Most men and boys who are victims of gays usu. won’t call cops to report that a gay is committing indecent exposure, harassment or in worst cases molestation until some1 reacts violently and bashes the gay. A gay bashing case I know. What happened was that an 18 year old boy had been in a park with friends. A gay who was much bigger than him grabbed the boy’s butt & made a sex comment. The boy then told his 2 friends. After this, the 2 men grabbed the gay, brought him to the boy who then hit the gay several times in the face. That ‘gay bashing’ victim committed a crime-assault&battery & boy reacted by bashing him. If that teenage boy had tried to walk away, that gay who was much bigger than him would likely have attacked him because the gay had a violent history (unreported to cops) of beating up teenage boys after harassing them for sex & these cases unpredictable.

      With that gay, it’s highly likely the gay was trying to do something more violent, so that gay deserves no sympathy for getting hit in the face. This gay again had beaten up other teenage boys after committing assault & battery, was likely trying to do it to this teenage boy, but because teenage boy had 2 friends (1 a martial arts expert) who were with him, they were able to defend this boy. If the homosexual is high on drugs such as cocaine as that gay possibly was then it’s likely the gay would’ve done more violent crime in a cocaine rage if indeed the gay was high. Self-defense is a jury topic after hearing both prosecutor & defense lawyer & jury decides if gay basher used reasonable or excessive force. If it’s reasonable, then you acquit and if it’s excessive, then what degree. if it turns out that homosexual committed indecent exposure, harassment or assault & battery on a young man (men) before the men reacted violently, then I have no sympathy for the homosexual.

      Something to regard-if you’re a store owner there is no need to put up signs that say ‘don’t steal’ because stealing is a crime and no need to say no to a crime the other person has no right to do. If some1 is stealing, the right thing to do is use reasonable (not excess) force to stop the the thief and have the police arrest the thief. If you do nothing, then worse can happen as these situations can be unpredictable. It is possible for a thief to be stealing things anything small such as shoplifting candy to expensive things such as diamonds and then beat up or even kill the shop keeper in the same crime with or without weapons. Many cases where thieves have beaten up or killed shop keepers after stealing. No, stealing alone does not justify deadly force but theft may not be the only crime intended and it is possible for thieves to beat up or kill their victims. If the thief is high on drugs (such as a junky who steals to support his or her habit) then it is possible for the thief to be stealing things and then in a drug rage attack or even kill the store owner.

      So if a homosexual is going to commit harassment, indecent exposure, stalking, assault and battery (such as if a homosexual grabs a man’s butt or groin against will), etc. then a man has a right to use reasonable force to end the abuse. There’s no need for a man to say no to a homosexual who is committing indecent exposure, etc. because there’s no need to say no to a crime the other had no right to as in the store owner eg.-stealing is a crime and no need to say no to thieves. If a defense lawyer in a gay bashing case wants to raise a crime the gay did such as harassment, indecent exposure, stalking, etc. before man reacted violently, then that must be regarded in deciding verdict.

      Posters must be honest & say that they think if a gay or some cases lesbian commits a crime such as indecent exposure, stalking, etc. that you don’t think a man should have a right to defend himself against this crime. Though you know this & posters talk with forked tongue, here are some things you know but omit, as these cases are unpredictable.

      -If a gay grabs a man’s butt, groin, etc. against will, the homosexual is committing assault & battery or forceplay even if people use mild words such as unwanted….. If a homosexual man is trying to commit a more serious crime such as pedophilia, the first things a gay does is that assault & battery or forceplay. It’s same way that if a man is going to rape a woman, the 1st things he does are grab a woman’s boobs, butt, etc. against will or forceplay. If a homosexual wants to commit molestation-Stalking, indecent exposure, assault & battery or forceplay, etc. are often the first crimes a homosexual does before he molests.

      -If the gay (some cases lesbian) is high on drugs such as cocaine & or meth while committing indecent exposure, stalking, etc., then the homosexual can commit a more violent crime incl. murder in a drug rage after committing indecent exposure. Stalking, indecent exposure, etc. may not be the only crime which the homosexual intends esp. if he is high on drugs. Think you know that when gays & lesbians commit sex abuse, the first thing they do is commit indecent exposure, grab a person’s genitals against will before doing something more violent. You’re offended by a man defending himself if a homosexual commits indecent exposure, etc.

      For posters who say that if a homosexual (some cases lesbian) commits crimes such as stalking, indecent exposure, assault & battery (touching a person’s butt, groin, etc. against will is assault & battery or forceplay), etc. that the man should allow the abuse are apologists for molestation because that is what a would be molester wants the victim to do before doing a more violent attack. First again-stalking, harassment, indecent exposure, assault & battery (forceplay), etc. are crimes just by themselves. But they can easily worsen to something more violent.

      Even the pro-gay websites Huffington Post & Queerty admit that gays, lesbians & transexuals (mutilated gays/lesbians) are more likely to be drug junkies as you can see these 3 links http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/why-do-gay-men-do-crystal-meth_us_5704023ee4b083f5c60929b5 https://www.queerty.com/whats-behind-the-enduring-allure-of-crystal-meth-for-gay-men-20160405 & https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20160201/west-village/meth-is-overlooked-problem-transgender-gay-communities-experts

      What the 3 links omit are violent crimes gays, lesbians & transexuals commit while high on drugs. If the gay (some cases lesbian) is high on drugs such as cocaine & or meth while committing indecent exposure, stalking, etc., then the homosexual can commit a more violent crime incl. murder in a drug rage after committing indecent exposure. Stalking, indecent exposure, etc. may not be the only crime which the homosexual intends esp. if he is high on drugs.
