    Have you seen the massive amount of politicians who can't exploit Trayvon Martin's death enough?

    A man mercilessly gunning down people on a college campus should be much much more of a concern of our country than a man shooting another person possibly in self defense. If not for political gain, what possible reason is there to ignore these crimes but exploit Trayvon so much?

    You're playing a game of gotcha', Redress. Frankly, that sucks. Comment on the post or move along. I'm defending myself from a RIDICULOUS attack by YOU. I would have thought you would be above that.

    I'll repeat: Where is Congress on this issue? Where are the hearings? School shootings/mass murder that's become epidemic is surely as important as any other hearings they could hold.

    Oh, and by the way, Redress, in case you've forgotten, Congress is made up of, wait!for!it!, Dems and Reps. Partisan my lily white ass.

    Its worth pointing out the hypocrisy in our politicians.

    Why is trayvon more important than these people?

    The meeting wasn't on Trayvon Martin. It was on racial profiling. Maybe you should get your facts straight before making such buill**** claims?

    Re: 5 dead, suspect in custody in classroom shooting at Oikos University in Californi

    I have a serious question that is not meant to bait anyone but actually be answered honestly.

    We have these sad events from time to time. With these events come the predictable weeping and gnashing of teeth and lots of sympathy - perhaps real, perhaps feigned - about the victims and their families. And then we bury them and try to remember to forget.

    Until the next time which is usually not that far down the road. And then we do it again burying the dead and trying to remember to forget yet again.

    How often does this have to happen before we do more?

    At what point does doing more transcend the charge of political opportunism and approach the reality of being sick and tired of being sick and tired?

    I am tired of remembering to forget. I suspect a good deal of the nation is also.

    Maggie, the bodies are not even cold yet. Perhaps you could wait three days before the odd political attack. ( The House is run by conservatives, they chair the committees, perhaps you could send them an Email and post their response)

    Might also wait and see if a jilted lover/failed student/ just plain loony tune did this senseless attack. Just what about this violence makes it an issue for Congress?

    Oh, now we have the pile-ons.

    COMMENT ON THE FREAKIN' THREAD OR GO AWAY, DAMN IT.

    I cannot believe that after over a year on this board anyone would think I'd post this thread as bait. Or to exploit dead students, for God's sake. You few make me sick. Especially Redress.
