Four black teens kill Lawrence ‘Shine’ Thornton – 87 year old WWII veteran
Lawrence Shine Thornton was an 87 year old World War II veteran. I say was because he has died after a fatal burglary attempt by four teens who could be Obama’s sons. Terrance Morgan, Edward Johnson, Leslie Litt and Geblonski Murray could all be Obama’s son like Trayvon Martin. These four black thugs ‘allegedly’ attacked the elderly Lawrence Shine Thornton on his own property. The elderly man later died at the University Of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi. And Obama’s race war rages on.
