Agreed he has such a honest face for a abuser, who would have thought he could have done this terrible crime, ME ME ME ... Lets see a picture of the womans face that he beat, to really show what a wonderful and big man he really is, or the cheap punk he has become thinking beating a woman makes him bad, when he gets to jail I am sure that he will prove how bad he is when he becomes Bubba's girl.

The Lake Charles American posted this picture from 2 years ago with this man smiling. This is not a recent picture of Jeremy Payne. His hair is low cut because he just got a haircut and he had several bruises on him. This is the press way of having the public think that this black man is cruel and dangerous. Our young black men are always being exploited and killed. This is the press way of convicting this man before he can prove his innocence. We citizens all know that this is an election year!
