    That's the difference -- IF the perps in these instances hadn't been arrested, you'd have a point. But they have been, justice is being done for the victims.
    If Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are as color blind as you insist then surely you have plenty of examples of their advocating for victims that don't fit the white on black crime mold. Can you start listing them?

    We went from punishing criminals to rationalizing their behavior then we wonder why it's escalating.
    When whoever did this heinous crime are caught, I pretty sure they will be punished. But is it escalating? Or are people just becoming more aware because of the media? This probably would have remained local news a few years ago. Now it seems almost everything that happens, instantly becomes national news.

    All we're doing is illustrating the political hypocrisy typical of the other side. I'm not certain this was racial, we may find out. I hope these boys are made examples of for what they did.

    You're just illustrating the hypocrisy on your side by doing that. If this victim was black, would those on the right notice it?

    Nope, I think most people got it. The Trayvon Martin case would never have been racial at all, if it weren't for the Left. You need to step up and own that. Lots of people are beaten, murdered or maimed everyday, but only the Left picks out certain ones to serve their agenda. You need to own it, because it's true. If youdon't like that, then do something about it or leave the Democratic Party.

    I left the Democratic Party years ago.

    What most people forget about Z/M is that it started with a "white" guy who didn't get arrested after killing a black teenager. What many were saying, and I agree at that point, is that if Z was black he would have been arrested on the spot and already sent up the river before it even became an issue. This is not an issue in these cases - the alleged perps (who are black) have been arrested right away. The difference as to why these don't get the media attention is that when a crime is committed and someone is arrested, there IS NO CONTROVERSY.

    The Zimmerman thing wasn't about that he wasn't black and his victim was. It was about the fact that he was not arrested -- probably because he isn't black.

    But... but... the assailants were unarmed, like Trayvon Martin. If Belton had disposed of them properly (as you suggest) the race pimps would be up in arms, Obama would run his mouth about an imaginary son, and Holder would turn the DOJ loose again to drum up public discontent and run another phony investigation.

    Exactly.

    Frankly, any POTUS has no business commenting on stuff like this, period.

    I find it painfully obvious that BHO neither commented on this case, nor the shooting of the Australian athlete.

    Partisan hackery disgusts me no matter the source.
