SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE – Shawn Tyson has been found guilty in the April 16 murders of two British tourists. The jury deliberated for about two hours before rendering its verdict. The verdict came after five days of testimony from forensic experts and witnesses who painted a picture of Tyson as a hothead nicknamed “Savage” who flaunted his .22-caliber revolver.
Tyson, 17, will be sentenced to life in prison. Relying heavily on witness testimony, prosecutors tied Tyson to the murders of James Kouzaris, 24, and James Cooper, 25.While on vacation in Sarasota, the two drunkenly stumbled into The Courts housing complex where Tyson lived and were later found dead with their pants pulled down. The murders sparked an international media storm and highlighted Sarasota, known for its beaches and affluence, as a city of contrasts.
One British headline read “Gunned down in the Ghetto,” a reference to Newtown, the city’s neighborhood with the highest crime and poverty. Kouzaris and Cooper were both killed by a .22-caliber handgun — one like the revolver witnesses say Tyson carried at his hip, with a red bandana wrapped around the handle.
Newtown needs a curfew to protect the citizens of Sarasota from other gangsters like Shawn Tyson, forget about “Profiling”, Civil Rights Complaints and the ass clowns at the ACLU the safety of the citizens of Sarasota is most important, that’s all I’ve got to say about this P.O.S. Shawn Tyson and his gang, rot in jail for the rest of your life dirtball.
