Idiotic white woman wants black man who shot her to be released from prison
Model Debbie Baigrie was walking to her car in down town Tampa Bay when a 13-year-old Ian Manuel approached her. The youngster and a friend demanded change for a $20 bill, but seconds later the black boy drew his gun and shot her in the mouth. Baigrie, who was 28 at the time and had just had her second child, required years of facial reconstructive surgery while Manuel was charged with attempted murder and sentenced to three consecutive life sentences in an adult prison. But more than 25 years after the attack the pair have struck up an unlikely friendship, and now she is campaigning for his release. She feels sympathy for the shooter, because he was so young at the time, and is troubled by the racial discrimination in the case. "If he was a cute white boy at 13, with little dimples and blue eyes, there's no way this would have happened," she said. "When you're 13, you do stupid stuff," she adds before saying "Walk a mile in his shoes." The only rational explanation that I can come up with for this woman's foolish behavior is that she suffered brain damage when the black thug shot her in the mouth.
