    We don't know all the facts and circumstances surrounding the incident in question but, at this point, all semblance of an investigation has been thrown out the window and people are seeking summary judgement against the authority.
    Right, which applies to every aspect of this story, presently.

    I'm not saying that's absolutely what happened, but the posters saying, "wait for the results of the investigation" are absolutely right on.
    Well it's not like he is going to show these pics. He is just as likely to claim they are not him as well even though he doesn't know.

    Laws are not evenly and equally applied across class and racial lines. You don't see institutionalized racism for what it is. There are two sets of laws applied to different people in society, in this case white people get more empathy, less suspicion, and chances for redemption and black people get no empathy, suspicion and profiling, and must answer to the law.

    Anyone know a good place to find case facts on this? I don't give a crap which way the decisions fall. I just want to know what happened.

    I know that I should be used to the level of stupid I see on the internet but to read some of this stuff is just mind boggling. I mean, seriously, "anecdotal evidence doesn't mean anything unless you see it on television"......really? No wonder this country is so screwed up.

    No unfortunately we don't have much facts yet about exactly what happened.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    Then why is anyone condoning the accusations of a "coverup" or a "murder" by the cops?

    There's literally nothing white America can do for them that hasn't already been done. And when some people - white and black - seize upon that reality and get black Americans to think, vote, and act in lockstep, this is the result you get.

    The only answer is family and REAL education, not the political rubbish they consume at school.
    And given how we fund and run our educational system, that's a rather large long-shot.

    Flashing gang signs does not mean one is in a gang. Chalk that up to the culture. Could just as easily be a wannabe thug. Check out Trayvon Martin. Petty thug wannabe.

    His attacking an Officer would classify him as being a thug.
    His robbing would classify him as being a thug.
    And flashing crip sign when you are not, is enough to get one killed.
    So either he was, or was just one dumb son-of-a-bitch.

    As for Trayvon, his behavior/actions was far from just being a wannabe.

    I think what is needed here is a definition that everyone can agree on.
    Because both the individuals you mentioned have engaged in what can be defined as thug behavior.



    And for clarification, not being in a gang, does not mean one is not a thug.
