The thug convicted of killing Trapuzzano in April of last year has wrangled a plea deal that cuts his sentence by twenty years.
Simeon Adams, then 16, smirked as he passed TV news crews; his hands bound in cuffs.
Trapuzzano's sister Shayne was unforgiving.
'It's not enough. The punishment does not fit the crime,' she told the Indianapolis Star. "If the system worked, he would have never had the opportunity to kill Nathan."
• Tragically, many Americans don't understand black culture.
White people frequently let down their guard when they are in high-crime black areas. It is unconscionable for them to suspect black crime to be elevated. Such thinking smacks of blatant racism, they believe.
And what could be worse than being labeled a racist?
Being a victim of black violence.
Please report typos...
Trapuzzano, a computer programmer and devout Catholic, was walking near his home at 5.50am on April 1, 2014, when he was accosted by Adams, who tried to rob him.
He died from one gunshot wound through his abdomen.
Adams, nicknamed Red, was spotted on security footage shepherding Trapuzzano into a parking lot, where he was shot.
Nathan's widow Jennifer who was eight-months pregnant with their daughter Cecilia when he was killed has also spoken out for the need for a change to the law.
