was the perpetrator black? Was the homeowner a white Hispanic?
If the boy is black and the homeowner not black, this could be another Trayvon Martin case. A key difference is that the boy was up to no good, whereas the liberal view of Trayvon Martin is that he was just minding his own business walking home. They can’t say that in this case. But the liberals and race baiters will say that even though the boy should not have been at this guy’s house, that it was excessive force.
Now, if the homeowner was black and the boy is black, then this story will disappear from the media. It will only stay alive if the boy is black and the homeowner is another race or ethnicity.
I think a key difference could be to the other side. Martin had jumped and was beating the crap out of Zimmerman. This kid, along with being three years younger didn’t show that he was an imminent threat from which the shooter couldn’t retreat.
You left out the real possibility that the homeowner is a White Black man.
You know, someone with skin like the late Michael Jackson.
