to see how fast things can get around, and it's proven that it gets around really fast.
It's a rating game with the media. You will watch the news channel that gives the wildest one line preview. Simply saying "black youth shot",
won't draw viewers.
But as soon as you hear "Black child killed walking home with candy." you will tune in.
It's your fault as viewers.
But there is still one point that keeps being overlooked by the 'hang em high' crowd.
This hooded youth was walking around in the rain, in a gated comunity, where he didn't live. He must have hopped a fence to enter. Was it really 'on
his way home'? Why shouldn't Zimmerman follow this suspisious person in his own neighborhood?
How often do the police stop a mugging 'in progress'?
How often do the police stop a burglary 'in progress'?
Wouldn't you feel safer knowing someone in your neighborhood is always walking around? Assume you know nothing about them carrying a gun.
