    This is the fourth attack on a white person from a black assailant saying it was for Trayvon. You don't see a pattern here?
    Racism occurs in all races. That's not breaking news to me.

    True, but it is only politically correct to highlight it when it is white/black. Other than that we have supposedly papers of record inventing a totally new way of describing a hispanic as a "white" hispanic....Doesn't take a genius to see what is at play here.

    I agree, however, there seems to be segments of our society who only see racism when is white on black or other minority.

    Case one, Louis Farrakhan, called the actions of 4 black youths, using screwdrivers as weapons to rob a white man, Bernard Goetz as justified action because of racism directed towards blacks and the fact that blacks were once slaves. He repeatedly calls actions Jewish conspiriacies. But yet, no one, outside of a few white people, ever call his stance for what it is Racism. One thing I find interesting about Farrakhan, take most of his rhetoric and change black to white, and you get a speech from the KKK or Skinheads, yet his Nation of Islam are not considered a racist organization by many.

    Case two, Affirmative Action, any action using race as a selection criteria for implementation is, in fact racist. Yet this law continues to be pursued.

    That's an interesting point. Has there been any official mention on whether Martin or Zimmerman having drugs in their system?

    Zimmerman was never checked for drugs, which is a MAJOR **** up by the Sanford Police.

    there is no report of Zimmerman having drugs in his system, and we must assume he had an autopsy.

    They do autopsies on live humans now? But really people, this thread isn't about Martin, or Zim..To the extent that it is more about the bias of Obama, and the prosecution.

    There has been one arrest so far, but it's very encouraging that the neighborhood and surrounding areas are taking steps NOT to take sides, point fingers or escalate the racial tension; they're marching to diffuse it as a unity measure.

    Something everyone who's so emotionally charged and politically motivated could possibly emulate. To j-mac's point, THAT communities actions linked below, is a teachable moment for our President.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Thanks for the update Ockham...The claims of knives being brandished was not in the initial report, and I don't know if it is true, but the arrest records of both individuals are....We should keep an eye on this one.

    Owen apparently has a mental illness. The fight was not the first one. It's been going on for years according to police. So unless Owens and his assailant's are psychics the ongoing trouble was not related to Zimmerman/Martin.

    Owens must be one hell of bad ass if the neighborhood felt it had to send 40 people with pipes, garden tools, paints cans (paint cans?), lawn chairs, rocks, 8 ounces of play dough (red and blue, mixed), 2 jumbo cherry Slurpees, a hard bound copy of the Old Man and the Sea, 3 slices of watermelon, a weed eater, 2 Smokey Robinson CDs, 8 children under 12, a gaggle of old women and one standard restaurant napkin holder just to kick Owens' loud and mouthy butt.
