    Is that what an orbital fracture looks like?

    The real protest is happening in New York which is really interesting.

    What exactly are you trying to insinuate, Hamster? And do you not remember from history class what the gulags and the Trail of Tears were?

    People kept assuming it would turn to violence with the Trayvon Martin ruling, and it didn't... I didn't think it was a sure bet.

    That's been an unenviable job for a while, but point taken.

It's a double edged sword really, without the media attention, it's very likely this would of just been another case of a black kid shot by a white cop.

    Give me a break. You two badly underestimate the power of propaganda. Consider this: At the expense of going Godwin here (I *am* Godwin's lawyer, after all ), how effective would the Nazi regime have been without any propaganda? Hell, how effective would *any* authoritarian regime been without propaganda?

    Incorrect. IT was not JUST civilians who poured the metaphorical gasoline onto this situation. Some civilians absolutely ahve

    Let me ask you this: Were it not for our sensationalist national media, who is no doubt covering this live right now with their pro-fear rhetoric, and in the case of Fox "News," Right-Wing rhetoric as well, could you honestly say that the overall civilian reaction would have been exactly the same?
    Exactly the same? Of course not. But the media didn't make people shoot at police, the media didn't set buildings and cars on fire, the media didn't loot buildings, the media didn't throw things at police. Those people who did do that aren't somehow bereft of any kind of blame or shouldn't have finger pointed at them simply because the media enflamed things. The media, sadly, is also a give and take type of thing...they can help enflame things, but people have to buy in and help exacerbate it for it to actually have any impact, and the cycle just continues agin and again.

    I'm not saying that only one side is worthy of having fingers pointed at them...that's you. I'm saying that the news coverage on this absolutely deserves criticism, but it doesn't excuse those that are making their own conscious decisions to do wrongful actions.

    He obviously took a hell of a punch to the side of his jaw.

    To be fair though, whites have had it a lot better in this country for a long time. The case for whites was just about that case, whereas with blacks, these cases are far more.
