Richard Collins III, 23, should have been graduating from Bowie State University this week. He was murdered over the weekend by a white University of Maryland student who, police have said, is a member of a racist Facebook group. Somehow, the suspect's participation in the group isn't enough for police to designate his death as a hate crime yet. As of press time, they've said they are investigating. Meanwhile, Collins' family will begin the drawn-out process of waiting and hoping for justice. The suspect, 22-year-old Sean Christopher Urbanski, is facing first-degree murder charges and is held without bail. Collins "was not a thug," Rev. Darryl L. Godlock, who is serving as a spokesperson for the family, said about Collins. He shouldn't have to defend the victim at all. But we know how these things go.
