Courtroom Erupts In Violence After Man Receives Life In Prison [Video]

 

A 19-year-old Milwaukee man had to be subdued and pepper sprayed Friday after reacting violently in court to a sentence of life in prison without parole.

Seandell Jackson received a life sentence for the murder of University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student Nathan Potter in a botched robbery.

In February police say Jackson approached the college student and demanded he give him his money, when the boy told him he didn’t have any, he shot him.

Sheriff Deputies were on edge at the sentencing Friday because Jackson has a track record of bad behavior in the court room.

At previous proceedings he was seen smiling and leering at the victim’s family and would often curse and yell at them.

When he heard he was receiving life with no chance of parole, sheriff’s rushed to subdue him and had to wrestle him to the ground. He is seen flipping one officer over his shoulder.

Members of his family can be heard in the video screaming and crying while one of the relatives reportedly told the victim’s family,

“I hate you, I hate you all.”

  • Hey Hey

    It’s sad that he’s so young and going to jail fo rlife, but then again, he killed someone (in college trying to do something with his life). We make choices, he took his own choice as well as someone else’s… It’s too bad our world is this way nd our people don’t have (feel like) any other way.

  • vince

  • MY 2 CENTS

    The young man killed someone and got life in prison. I understand and agree with that. HOWSINEVER…what was the deal on that female officer? She was yanking his head around and throwing him down and pepper spraying him like he was a rabid bucking bronco — which was so obviously not the case. She even grabbed him by the hair on the way OUT, AFTER he’d been subdued and HANDCUFFED! Okay, so we carted another one off to prison — now somebody investigate THAT heifer’s actions and mete out some kind of punishment on HER overly-aggressive, possibly racist, policies and procedures breaking A**!

  • DOM

    This is why the deputy did what she did! I can’t believe anyone feels sorry for him. HE TOOK A LIFE!!! WTF?!?!?!? You wouldn’t have any sympahty if that was your family he murdered!

  • John Smith

    @n.o. jay, the commenter above me, WTF R U TALKIN BOUT!!!!

    omg, smh, lmao…u sound dumb as a box or rocks right now. You cant defend everybody just becaus they’re black.

    I repeat,
    YOU CAN NOT DEFEND EVERYONE JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE BLACK.

    Number one on this list is people who kill. Like, WTF!?!? Am i in the twilight zone? We showin sympathy to murderers now?

    Where they do THAT at??!!

    they did the right thing. before they lost control of the situation,they controlled the situaTION.this guy had nothing to loose,and had already been intimidating the family in court.he could have totaly lost it and injured someone,with nothing to loose.they controlled it and removed him.

  • Dan Lee

    He should have gotten the death penalty and it should be done the same day.
