18 y/o Dayonn Davis from Georgia was given a HEFTY PRISON SENTENCE of 5 YEARS after he stole a $100 pair of shoes in an armed robbery even though he had NO CRIMINAL HISTORY and was FIFTEEN at the time!!

He was charged as an adult even though he was a minor at the time of when the crime was committed and he had no prior record and HE DIDN'T PULL OUT THE GUN but the friend he brought did!!

Prosecutor Sadhana Dailey said that he had contacted the owner of the Nike Oreos after seeing them on sale on Facebook and arranged a meeting at Columbus Park on Jan. 17, 2016.

Another male went with him to the meeting and when Davis tried on the shoes, he told him "These shoes is took" and another male pulled out a gun and everyone fled

The prosecutor said "This was an armed robbery. It's not a theft. There's a big difference between a theft and an armed robber. The teen victim was robbed at gunpoint"...

Dayonn initially said no one else was involved but then gave up his name but the seller of the shoes couldn't identify the person in a photo lineup as the gunman.

Thus, he was charged with the armed robbery and reached a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty to robbery by foorce that allowed him to av oid a 10 year sentence that comes with an armed robbery conviction. The prosecutor said "He got a break"

Defense Susan Hendersoon said that her client just wants to put the thing behind him and move on as he was extremely remorseful and he's got his life on track now.

But the judge, Bobby Peters, didn't care and said it made little difference in the eyes of the law. He said he would rather it be handled in juvenile court but said it was APPROPRIATE to charge him as an adult because of the seriousness

Because it was his first offense, he would likely be on parole at some point and hs record could be exppunged if he compltes probation

No one else has been charged as the one who actually pulled out the gun is still on the loose

That didn't stop the outrage however as activists said if Dayonn was White, he would have gotten a lenient sentence as judges rule on harsher sentences on black men because of their background and skin colour

Do you think this if this were a white kid he would have gotten a lenient sentence?

Dayonn - Prison

Disproportionate punishment by a racist court system. Pretty typical, not sure how this is news.

It’s duckbear. He’ll sensationalize anything to get people to look at his threads.

If he were actually speaking his topics out loud, he’d be randomly screaming words since they were in all caps on the post.

If he was white, he'd have been sent to a camp in a desert where they force you to dig holes all day.
