    doesn't advance Obama's election effort or castigate whites which sort of goes hand in hand in the minds of some of Obama's most fervent supporters

    Re: Thousands march in Philadelphia to protest Trayvon Martin killing

    I think people are getting hyper emotional about the issue. Things are still in court, and from what we know there have been no witnesses. People are getting emotional about a black kid that was killed by a Latino man. People can protest, but personally I think since things are still in court people shouldn't say one way or another that this was a race based killing and that the defendant is guilty without knowing the facts. Much that has been reported on this has been geared towards generating an emotional response.

    no, there is one eye-witness.

    but no charges have been pressed. thats the problem.

    Thanks for the info. Charges should be pressed, but I don't think it's appropriate to rule this as a race based killing or say the defendant is 100% guilty.

    its not conclusive that this is a race-based killing, as I disagree with many of the folks who think that Zimmerman called Martin a "coon". Perhaps I'm just not swayed by popular opinion & belief, as others are.

    however, no detectives went over the scene and talked to witnesses. no investigators went over all of the evidence.

    the decision to not indict, was made on the scene, by the appearing officers.

    at the very least, the bare minimum......an investigator and a district attorney should have investigated and looked at the evidence, to decide whether or not to indict.


    ...oh and btw, no alcohol or drug tests were given to the shooter.

    Travon Martin was a 6'3" hood wannabee. Currently suspended from his HS.

    Here's the real Trayvon, not those 4 year old pictures they dug up to make him look like a little kid. These were from his Facebook, before they were scrubbed. Now all you see are pictures of 13 year old Trayvon.

    Behold, 6'3" Trayvon.

    Clearly the presumption of innocence doesn't apply to anonymous internet mavens.

    So your justification and counter is that he had a facebook and tooks pics of himself that make him look "thug" and he was 6 foot 3 and was suspended from school.... Wow...
