The shooter is apparently black (well, at least he was speaking in idiomatic english assosciated with blacks).
She was dead. I shot her twice, she best be dead … (The man) had run off and left her.”
As such, I doubt this case of armed idiocy goes any where on CNN and I doubt Obama references it in speeches. For them, the only armed idiots worth reporting on are the white ones- or in the case of Zimmerman, somebody who is a uhmm.... "white hispanic".
