    Uh, Martin was unarmed and was killed, the shooter should be in prison, but was not even arrested. In this case the shooter was arrested and thrown in jail as he should have been. If the shooter in Indianapolis was not arrested and the local PD called it self defense even thought the vic was unarmed, then it should be a national story too. Apples and oranges. Or hammers or something, but this story is in no way similar to Zimmerman in any way except there was a murder.

    I think the OP's point was that the Martin story was covered ad nauseum, for some unknown reason, and this story wasn't.

    Zimmerman killed an unarmed minor and got off because of some self defense claim.

    The victim in this case was also unarmed and killed.

    The story is the difference in coverage, not the crime.

    The killer is in prison, not out manning some crimewatch thingy. See the difference?

    Not going to re-litigate that - it's over, the jury made their decision so deal with it. I'm simply pointing out why the Martin case got national attention and why Trapuzzano's case is not getting widespread national attention.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    This is what I don't understand. The guy's not getting away with anything (at least not yet). The only similarity between this and Z/M is that the killer and victim were of different races. EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT THE CASE IS DIFFERENT. Yet we're supposed to be mad that it's not getting the same coverage?

    Because the only way there's any similarity between the two is if you're making it about race. The only similarity is that the shooter and victim are of different races. That's it! So unless you are focusing on the victim being white, there's nothing there.

    You have to take that up with the juries.

    One was acquitted by a jury. The other hasn't faced one yet.

    The national coverage of the Martin crime happened long before he saw his jury.

    You're right.

    One got national attention. The other didn't.

    I think the point is and has been that because the guy killed was white, no one gives a ****. If the races were switched, this would be the Martin case all over again.
