Let it be noted that on this day, Saturday 13 July 2013, it was still deemed legal in the US to chase and then shoot dead an unarmed young black man on his way home from the store because you didn't like the look of him.

What a thorough mischaracterization. TM was shot because he was assaulting someone.

They, too, either can't read cursive, or they are bald-faced liars.

>>minding his own business armed only with a can of iced tea and a bag of Skittles.

A Navy SEAL could kill you 20 different ways with those weapons. If it was Chuck Norris, he could blow up an oil rig with them. If it was MacGuyver, he could use them and a roll of duct tape to build a Saturn V and go to the the Moon.

I hate it when people act like the Civil Rights Movement never took place.

Maybe they should focus their energy on places like Chicago.

Martin's heart would still be beating if Zimmerman had not chased him down and shot him

It is really remarkable to watch this unfold. It's like watching a toddler repeatedly deny having had his hand in the cookie jar, despite you having caught him in the act moments before.

They are literally.....childish....

It’s open season on ANY person of ANY race that attacks another and puts them in fear of their lives who is armed and can then do something to save their lives.

Hey, Gary — how many ‘black boys’ were shot in Chicago this weekend? And who shot them?

Unbelievable...

It’s been open season on black boys (and girls) in places like Chicago for years upon years. The perpetrators are other black boys and girls.

What a load of crap. It should be open season on people who try to rob and kill you.

I haven’t heard anyone mention that the neighborhood where Martin was shot had 8 burglaries in 14 months before the shooting, and none in the 17 months since the shooting. As in NO burglaries.

Open season on black boys

You do not understand. They don’t care about any Civil Rights movement. That only got them free food, free housing, free nobama phone, now they demand to live like NBA Stars.

Their goal is privilege and domination, not equality. That is the African Culture and has played out for thousands of years.

This guy’s in CHICAGO writing this? Why the fascination with Sanford, Florida when his own city is littered with dead young black men, shot over the course of any given weekend? Are their lives of no note? Is there no wrong committed when young black men kill each other? Maybe all this killing has logically led to others viewing young black men as dangerous. Maybe if the “black community” had been a community and saw to it that these young men didn’t become threats to each other and society as a whole, this conversation would be unnecessary. But no, perpetuating racial grievance is ever so much more important than any of that. Trayvon Martin was belatedly recgnized as a potential cash register, the full weight of the entire affirmative action-media-industrial complex was brought to bear, and they failed to convict. That must be a scary thing to those who don’t understand anything else, like, oh, I don’t know, actual guilt or innocence, facts, logic?

Some of the more over-the-top articles (like this dork’s) don’t really even warrant a serious discussion. Where would you start?

They’re so silly, it makes me want to respond in kind, like
“Darn right it’s still legal! What’s YOUR favorite load to use? Anybody got any good recipes? Are fat ones like that author any good or should I look for skinny Skittles-fed ones?”
