Frederick Young and his accomplice, Felando Hunter, robbed, tortured, and murdered Jourdan Bobbish and Jacob Kukla in Detroit in July 2012 as the teens were attempting to buy drugs.
Their bodies were discovered in a field in East Detroit after a search which lasted several days.
Given a chance to respond to the families’ impact statements during a sentencing hearing on Wednesday, Young made a statement which shocked the courtroom.
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner. And I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood – and in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say hands up, don’t shoot. Black lives matter. That’s it your honor.”

Last March, a customer named Bill Jack requested that Azucar Bakery in Denver, bake a cake shaped like a Bible that would’ve included the “God hates gays” messages on it.
Owner Marjorie Silva refused to make the cake, concluding that the messages on the cake were discriminatory. In response, Jack filed a complaint with the Department of Regulatory Agencies’ Civil Rights Division.
In a statement given to local media outlet 9News, Jack stated that he felt discriminated against when Azucar refused to make the cake he requested.
“I believe I was discriminated against by the bakery based on my creed. As a result, I filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights division,” Jack said. “Out of respect for the process, I will wait for the director to release his findings before making further comments.”
Azucar Bakery is now under investigation by the DOMA for possibly discriminating against Jack.
