    Re: N.C. teen's hanging death ruled a suicide; mother says it was a lynching

    The only reason why CNN is picking up the story is because of the lynching aspect. The media loves to race bait these days and anything that does it makes for salacious news reporting.

    Usually someone who's going to commit suicide exhibits signs well in advance. Someone who really wants to do it will actually still engage in their normal routines so that no one suspects anything, and they may seem happier than usual because they know everything is about to end. The mother might not have seen it because mothers are often in denial, but I would love to know what his friends, girlfriend, and teammate saw in him in the weeks leading up to this.

    If there were no behavioral changes noted among those closest to him, then I would suspect foul play. The banal treatment of the authorities is also suspicious, but there's nothing unusual about police ignoring or minimizing the deaths of minorities. Happens all the time. My intuition is that he was killed, and it was done to make it look like a suicide. It would've been a simple matter to dust the area for fingerprints to find out who else touched the belts used to kill him.

    Police are so useless these days.

    So...lets go ahead and have protests, marches, demonstrations and maybe even some good old fashioned rioting and looting...and then when the investigation finds no actual evidence of a 'lynching' we can still excuse and justify the protests because bad things have happened in the past and well...some people ARE still racist after all.

    This reminds me of something...

    Oh yeah...Ferguson Missouri. Hands up...dont shoot!

    Lets just see if there is actually anything to be upset about first. If so...right there with them.

    Have there been any protests, marches, demonstrations, rioting or looting over this incident? I didn't see any newscasts reporting that. Maybe I missed it. You seem to be taking the position that nobody has a right to even question the official party line on this death. Is that the case?

    Got called far-left just the other day. Now I'm far-right.

    It's VERY amusing to watch people on these boards scramble to try and define me in their limited scope whenever I have something substantive to say.

    Always glad to be a source of amusement. My statement stands. 'Race card' is a bull**** excuse for those denying racism exists.

    Is this where we ignore the fact that there's a 90% chance that the murderer--if it's actually a murser--is black?

    Please feel free to cite anywhere in my entire posting history where I said that racism doesn't exist.

    None of your definitions refute my point that it must be someone being accused of a crime to be a lynching. The whole point of a lynching that I made was that the person was ACCUSED of a crime and was not given DUE PROCESS.

    READ THINGS

    Apparently you were incapable of reading the key word in my original definition of lynch "ACCUSED of a crime"
    I gotta say you're right. Lynchings were historically carried out because there was a perceived crime or moral offense. The most famous cases of lynchings all followed the same trajectory. Emmett Till was lynched for the supposed crime of hitting on a white woman. The Committee of Vigilance was started to supposedly address crime. There really is no context in which lynchings weren't used in order to address perceived crimes, whether they actually happened or not.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Question away. its just ridiculous to get spun up on anything until you know. That IS precisely what happened in Ferguson. Id prefer not to see it happen again.
