    So it seems. i don't know how his parents are keeping it together. I'm sorry but the cops wouldn't have to pick this guy up since I'd have given him my own brand of justice by now. This is a truly sad event.

    I agree. It may not be much but something is always better then nothing at all.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......Here's update, just in case you may not be aware, but this lynching, as some would say, is now being carried over national news media; which suggests its not going away anytime soon, and we may see justice after all.


    Peace In,

    This is the kind of thing that reminds me of exactly just how far we've really come, or gone backwards.
    But the spin cycle has already begun. I read that they're saying he had a toy gun on him. That alone should tell you where the "investigation" is heading.

    The Huffington Post has a good piece of this. The killer has a history of violence, he was even arrested at one point for assaulting an police officer, and the police had previously received complaints about him harassing residents in the area. The piece lists what items the child had on him and there is no mention of a toy gun. Obviously, the shooter is being protected from prosecution by the local police chief, Bill Lee. But this is sounding like one of the situations where even our criminal justice system will not be able to protect the homicidal bigot for long.

    By the way, the child was found lying face down so I am wondering if Zimmerman, the shooter, shot him in the back. Reports have surfaced from people who heard the 911 tape indicating that Zimmerman refused to wait for the police because, his words, "they always get away".

    I wonder who he meant by "they"?

    It's over on CNN's website. They say he had a bag of skittles and a toy 9mm gun on him. Of course, I know how this game is played, and it's all just ways to cast doubt in the public eye about that murdered child. Next, we'll be hearing about his bad grades and his arrest & conviction for assault.
    The game never changes for us. They just kill the players.
