    You can ridicule all you want. You are taking the word of an anonymous poster because of confirmation bias. Don't pretend you have some high ground.

    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.
    Wait, he's a Crip and a Blood?

    The claim was perfectly reasonable and compared favorably with my own experiences so, in this case, yes.

    Oh Gawd! Pretty much nothing has been confirmed. It is all pretty much just what's been reported.
    The Officer shot through the door. Reported. Do you have anything that refutes that?
    Going for the Officers gun/attacking reported.
    You don't want to believe what has been reported, fine, then you really have nothing to discuss.

    While all facts have not been reported, this is pretty much fact.
    Not confirmed by LE, sure? Not confirmed, by what is known? Nonsense.

    This from four days ago.
    The slain teenager and a friend were “accused of stealing gum from the store or some sort of cigarettes,” the alderman said.

    It is uncalled for.

    18 year old adult.
    Flashing crip sign.
    It is far more likely that he knows the unwritten rules and isn't flashing because he is a wannabe.

    But you are ignoring that I do make for exception.

    Trayvon was small time. A little punk. All his crimes were petty BS crimes that he never got convicted of. And him trying to start a fight? That is...again...more evidence to me that he was nothing but a punk. Not saying he didn't deserve to get shot. Trayvon picked a fight with the wrong person. But hardly makes him a hardcore gangsta thug.
    Pretending makes one a punk, he engaged ion actions that made him a thug.

    See. There is no commonality here.
    As far as I am concerned, pretending is pretending. Engaging in actual actions is the determining factor.

    Oh sure it does, when one flashes gang signs.
    Your reply in nonsensical to that which you quoted.

    Yes, with no facts to support such defense and actual facts against such defense.

    Your denial of the problem is a big part of the problem.

    I never said he was.
    And the earlier pic supposedly was not of him. So?
    All you have done is show you are not paying attention.

    Now if the first pic was of him, for all you know he had move between the taking of the images and had to change affiliation.

    So spare us your failure to pay attention.

    Only believe them if they were black eyewitnesses, bonus points if they claimed they were marginalized.
