One day after McCloud died in the hospital, Eric Kaprice Richard II, 22, faces two charges: Second-degree unintentional murder while committing a felony, and first-degree manslaughter while committing a gross misdemeanor/misdemeanor with violence.

"That a death was caused over such a trivial thing as this is so tragic as to be beyond belief," says Washington County Attorney Pete Orput in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to this young victim's family with the message that our office will do all that we can to bring justice to them."

Richard's bail was set at $200,000.

Why isn't this a hate crime?  This ghetto thug thought that is was OK to knock out Whitey over a fucking cocktail.  If the roles were reversed, the white dude would have charged with a hate crime.  How can any you defend this ghetto thug?  Look at his ugly mug-shot with his yellowing eyes (probably from Hepatitis), and look at the "thug" look on his ugly face.  He was just keeping it real, apparently.  But as usual, our tax dollars will be footing the bill for his stay at the "Stillwater Hotel".  As always, this subhuman thug is yet another example of why we should have just picked our own fucking cotton.  A much better punishment should only cost us tax-payers about 50 cents...a good sturdy oak tree, a rope, and a bar stool.  End of problem.

Wow what a bunch of ignorant human beings. I am a white stillwater raised individual who can't beleive how there are so many yuppys that think they have the right to punk people around and pick who the hell should be in their town. Persons have been racist many times in the past and have gotten used to crying WOLFF!!! No1 deserves 2 die especially at such a young age but God works in mysterious ways.

@Keny1 way to show your ignorance. Sad story... I am happy with the charges. Has nothing to do with race. Same shit happens between two white people and between two black people.

He "dissed" him and "him bad" .  You cant let that shit happen and not "do"  sumthin. . Now he will get real real good at ...making license plates .  There is currently a fund being set up to keep Eric supplied with a 5 -10  year supply of vasoline while he is learning his new trade.

 @keny1 Why don't you shut the fuck up and not insert your racist opinions into stories that don't concern you? Show a little respect for the family and butt out.

 @keny1 City Pages are you ever going to ban this racist piece of shit?  He says something racist on every single story involving a black person.  Take some responsibility for your comment section.  No one wants to read racist trash like keny.  He threatens people and says racist things on every story.  He told a black woman in your comment section she couldn't comment because she was getting affrimative action.  Moniter these stories better.  This is terrible you allow keny to constantly state racist things while harrassing people.  He has personally threatened me numerous times using racist and sexist language.   This is why your comment section sucks now.  Do something about it.

 @swee2th  @keny1 "Opinions," okay but there is metric tons of evidence and police reports just like this one above in the article. Which spells out RACISM. Reversed racism. The poor man was murdered over a cocktail... the thug in that picture does deserve to be hanged for that. Because THATS HOW RIDICULOUS IT SOUNDS.

 @CinBlueland  @keny1 Of course you would stand up for keny, you are a well known racist.  Fuck off.  No one civilized wants to read keny's idiocy.  No sponsers want to see racist stupidity next to their ads.  City Pages is fucking up by not fixing this.

 @keny1 City Pages he does this every story.  Fix your shit.  It's embarrassing a loser like this gets to spread his stupidity.  If you want a good comment section you ban racist little kids like keny.
