    Another Unarmed Black Man Killed

    Bo Morrison Shot And Killed Under Stand Your Ground Law (DETAILS) | Global Grind

    Just saw this story. Not sure what to make of it. Different circumstances, was night, guy might have seriously freaked out when he shot the guy.

    Enough said:
    ""Under a reasonable view of the evidence the homeowner acted reasonably in his use of force based on the facts and circumstances," county District Attorney Mark Bensen said."
    "An attorney representing Kind said the shooting of Morrison in the enclosed porch would have been considered justifiable under Wisconsin's prior law as well.

    "All the factors to prove self defense under the old law were present," lawyer Craig Mastantuono said.

    I dunno man, as I said I am kind of eh on it. The guy shouldn't have been on his porch, but still, it is all very unfortunate.

    This is missing a whole lot of other instances. Since the February 26 shooting of Trayvon Martin, 432 black men have been killed. By black men.

    Except they could go to prison? Key difference.

    A white dude shot a black dude. Obviously, the white dude is a racist and shot the black dude because, he was black.

    While the incident is unfortunate seeing poor Bo portrayed in such a manner caused me to look askance, reach for my skittles and go to the next news item. What sensationalistic garbage.


    Bo Morrison, 20, was shot and killed in Slinger, Wisconsin on March 3rd after he ran from an underage drinking party and hid inside an enclosed porch of a neighboring house.

    Do the police arrest these killers or do they let them go?
