I'm trying to understand why the difference in the 2 tragedies.
The Fort Hood tragedy which took the lives of 13 people and over 30 were injured, was considered a "Work Place Crime" which many people spoke out
against knowing it was a terrorist attack or at the least, a hate crime.
The president was even criticized for his lack of compassion at first and then finally followed up by a decent speech.
No protests occurred, no comforting words by the government.
Fast forward to today, and we have a single incident which took the life a a young man with a shady past.
The trial came and went and showed no race was involved, no ill will or malice.
And 'Race' is being the blame when there clearly is no racism involved, only 2 people that made poor judgements on both sides.
Both are minorities, which the MSM doesn't point out.
And yet, the president is speaking out about this case and has from the very beginning.
Very compassionately, because of skin color. He can connect
As well as the MSM.
Yet, what about the Ft. Hood shootings?
What about all those victims?
Why wasn't that shooting categorized correctly?
That should have been a hate crime, not the Zimmerman shooting.
And it didn't get all the hoopla that GZ/TM is getting.
So what am I missing?
Why is the government out to get Zimmerman but the Ft. Hood shooter didn't get much attention from them?
Not meaning to down play the GZ trial, but I think the Ft. Hood shooting was 10 times worse and was categorized incorrectly.
While the TM/GZ was mainly about self-defense, not race.
