Its pathetic. I wonder what Martin Luther King would say today if he were alive to see what these thugs have done with the mantle he handed to him. A 70% out of wedlock birth rate, 14% making up 50% of the prison population and murder for boredom is not why gave his life. Sorry, I'm just angry and frustrated right now. People should be able to jog down the street without having to worry if they're going to get killed because somebody has nothing else to do. I'd think we'd somewhat were trying to come together as a country if Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Ben Jealous and Louis Farrakhan would go out to Oklahoma and call for these thugs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law but I doubt that'll happen.
    The Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. spoke out on Wednesday about the “senseless” shooting death of a white Australian athlete by two black teenagers and one white teenager in Oklahoma.

    “Praying for the family of Chris Lane,” Jackson said Wednesday on Twitter. “This senseless violence is frowned upon and the justice system must prevail.”

    Jackson’s comments come after a number of commentators ask why the black leaders who were outspoken during the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting were silent on the circumstances surrounding Lane’s murder.

    I stand corrected and applaud Rev. Jackson.

    Where are my facts wrong?

    Frowned upon? Seems like a rather odd use of the phrase.

    'The Left' is a broad brush, I just figured a little big man got in over his head, screamed like a little girl, panicked and used deadly force when he simply could/should have fought back rather than acting like a girl. The Zimmerman case was one of a wannabee cop profiling, stalking and then getting attacked by the one he stalked.

    The Duncan case is three thugs randomly targeting a victim- no profiling, no stalking just pure random violence.

    Is this actually based on anything other than the killers being black though?

    I don't know that it was but I have a very difficult time believing the left would be as insistent if white kids had killed a black man.

    Actually, he looks like he's " Black-Hispanic '' to me.

    Even the most ardent right winger has to admit 'hero' Zimmerman screamed like a little girl when his stalk didn't go the way he always fantasized it would.
    The only other thing I'd add to your left-wing fantasy about right wing fantasy is that Zimmerman got exactly what he wanted, which was to murder a black kid and get away with it.

    You seem to have a fantasy that since you see yourself as so tough as to not need a weapon in your self defense, then all are so gifted with these powers to repel evil with their bare hands and superhero fighting skills. If even well trained and equipped police feel the need to be armed when dealing with the criminal element in society then why wouldn't J. Q. Public be similarly inclined to see that as a good option?

    Many assert that Zimmermn's "fantasy" turned out exactly as he had planned. After all, they assert that Zimmerman sought to (and did) execute a young black person skipping home from the store without any criminal responsibililty for that action. Just like with insurance: it is better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.

    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
