Football Horror: Three Charged in Taylor Murder

12/1/2007 12:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Three of the four suspects in Sean Taylor's death were charged with unpremeditated murder early Saturday. Charles Wardlow, Eric Rivera and Venjah Hunte all faced the same charge. Police say the killing of Taylor was unplanned. The fourth suspect was arrested but has not yet been charged.

Miami-Dade Police Department spokeswoman Linda O'Brien identified the men as: Eric Rivera Jr., 17, Venjah K. Hunte, 20, Jason Scott Mitchell, 19 and Charles Kendrick Lee Wardlow, 18.

Miami-Dade County Police Director Robert Parker said the suspects didn't expect Taylor to be home when they broke into his home Monday morning. The NFL Pro Bowler surprised them and was fatally shot. The suspects -- all of whom have prior arrests -- are expected to make their first appearance in a Fort Myers courtroom sometime today.

I think this will be my last visit to this website. Sorry TMZ, but I cannot deal with all the racist comments and complete idiocy of some of the posts here. People can anonymously post anything that pops into their little heads and think they actually have something to say. Just stupid and ignorant. I don't like it, I won't read it, I won't be back.

This is a much bigger issue than Sean Taylor. People killing each other for no reason is an epidemic that deserves more attention than it is getting. What does it say when we have become immuned from feeling anything when an innocent fellow human being has been slained? This is certainly not a black/black or black/white issue -- its much deeper than that (watch Forensic Files). Message to the Judges -- lock them up and burn the key (don't throw it away, they may find it)!!!
