The funny thing, which is also the sad thing, is that if Trayvon had been the shooter as well as the attacker, none of us would have ever heard about the story, and that's the devil's honest truth.
Sure we would, when all the conservatives were outraged that he couldn't get the death penaltry due to being under 18 at the time of the shooting.
More intellectually honest progressives than yourself know people on the flip side of this coin are being killed every day with no fanfare in the media. Not long ago somebody opened up fire on the UW campus and you can barely find a word about it on the internet. Did they find him? Are they searching?
The shooter is described as a black man, between 20 and 25 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall.?
No one knows because black on white violence is supposed to be ignored. And the survivors of that crime were just trying to go to school, and got shot by a stranger.
Black on white violence policy: Don't cover it, just make a show of investigating it, don't mention it, don't remember it.
Trayvon Martin policy: Pretend a Hispanic guy is the evil white man, pretend a thug in the making is a 13 year old Disney kid, pretend the attacker was the victim, scandalize it, because "white" on black violence is a "really big deal", even when it's manufactured.
