    Jackson, Mississippi (CNN) -- On a recent Sunday morning just before dawn, two carloads of white teenagers drove to Jackson, Mississippi, on what the county district attorney says was a mission of hate: to find and hurt a black person.

    In a parking lot on the western side of town they found their victim.

    James Craig Anderson, a 49-year-old auto plant worker, was standing in a parking lot, near his car. The teens allegedly beat Anderson repeatedly, yelled racial epithets, including "White Power!" according to witnesses.

    Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith says a group of the teens then climbed into their large Ford F250 green pickup truck, floored the gas, and drove the truck right over Anderson, killing him instantly.

    Mississippi officials say it was a racially motivated murder. What the gang of teens did not know was that a surveillance camera was focused on the parking lot that night, and many of the events, including the actual murder of Anderson, were captured live on videotape.

    CNN has exclusively obtained that surveillance tape. The group of teens that night was led by 18-year-old Deryl Dedmon, Jr., of Brandon, Mississippi, according to police and officials.

    I hope the kid gets life. I hope they catch the others involved also. And even though I think at 18, you're responsible for your own actions, I have to wonder about that kid's parents.

    I hope they get as much mercy from a jury as they showed that innocent man.

    May they all rot in Hell.

    I can't bear to watch, and I'm incensed that such outrages are still committed in a land that should be so much better than that.

    :(

    If they had no reason to do that they should be put in the general population of a maximum security prison -- where the populations are typically around 70% Black.

    This is a DISGUSTING event!!!! This POS kid is acting just like the flash mobs in the Chicago area! Shootings, killings, stabings, violence..... this has been the worst summer ever. For weather and for anarcy! Heck just look at London! That was all racial. A white cop shot a gang member and killed him justly and then the British afro-cubans started a riot. Im sooooooo TIRED of this racism!

    Its like society is just falling apart. :(
