    I can appreciate your sanely spoken perspective, although I don't agree with any of it.

    Start from here .. you don't speak for most. Not by any stretch of the imagination. The Till case is iconic, forever emblazoned for all time in history as exactly what it was, the racist murder of a boy by a thuggish mob in the racist American south. Murdered because he supposedly dared to whistle at a white women .. when in fact, Emmitt Till had asthma.

    Point being, irrespective of how you view Till or his murder, history has already written that story .. and it's already written the story of how his murder became the impetus for the greatest social change in American history.

    AS for the Martin case .. it just keeps making the point.

    1. you keep ignoring the fact that this "thuggish mob" contained two BLACK men. I wonder why? could it possibly be because that FACT doesn't fit your agenda?

    2. are you seriously trying to claim that people with asthma cannot whistle?

    Just asking ..
    I wonder what the approval rating of socialists are in the US.

    My oldest son had childhood asthma and he used to drive me crazy with his constant whistling

    I was saying he had three arrests since his acquittal, which was clearly wrong. But, what you show here is a clear pattern of lawless behavior. And, it's pretty good evidence that suggest he probably never will be able to get his record expunged, if convicted.

    :0) Most Americans don't have a clue of what socialism is .. but Social Security and Medicare are two of the most popular programs in American history.

    Whatever its popularity .. the right is worried about it.

    :0) amazing

    THAT'S THE POINT.

    They claimed that Till whistled at a white woman .. when in fact, he had asthma which caused him to whistle.

    an equally ridiculous claim.... and the hits keep on rolling

    The facts of what transpired in the store are still disputed but according to several versions Till may have wolf-whistled at Bryant.[22] A newspaper account following his disappearance stated that Till sometimes whistled to alleviate his stuttering.[23] His speech was sometimes unclear; his mother said he had particular difficulty with pronouncing "b" sounds, and may have whistled to overcome problems asking for bubble gum.[24] According to other stories, Till may have grabbed Carolyn Bryant's hand and asked her for a date, or said "Bye, baby" as he left the store,[12] or "You needn't be afraid of me, baby, I've been with white women before."[25] Carolyn Bryant later asserted that Till had grabbed her at the waist and asked her for a date. She said the young man also used "unprintable" words.[26]
    no mention of whistling due to asthma. in any event, he did more than just whistle. not that anything he did warranted being murdered, but let's at least try to be somewhat honest. Till was not murdered because he was innocently "whistling" due to asthma. (FWIW: there is a marked difference between the sound of whistling and the sound of wheezing due to asthma. I lived with a child who had asthma for 19 years and am very familiar with the sounds associated with the condition)

    I can attest to the fact that high pitched wheezes are often described as "whistle". As airways constrict, your breathing can take on that quality.

    I have yet to see any evidence that Emmitt Till had asthma or that if he did that it caused him to whistle. The only thing I have ever seen is claims by his mother that he sometimes whistled to cover or cope with a speach impediment.

    In any event, he was not murdered for simply whistling.
