It's essentially a matter of scale, much like the famous observation "Kill one man, and you're a murderer. Kill a million, and you're a king."

Violence is legitimized by authority, or the perception of authority. In much the same vein, it would be illegal for me to construct drone weapons and use them to blow up buildings containing individuals who I deemed to be threats to national security. The President, by contrast, is rewarded with Nobel prizes for doing this exact same thing. Because we collectively agree that the President has authority, he is free to arbitrarily order assassinations.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which won some acclaim for fighting for victims of hate crimes and winning victories against white supremacists, considers the New Black Panthers a hate group.

Police: Body recovered is missing Family Dollar employee - Fox 2 News Headlines

Were the victims black? No?

Okay, no major media news coverage. Oh but Detroit filing for chapter 9 is making all the headlines.

Serious all the major news channels could devote ALL their time to this city, and couldn't cover all the bullshit.


Edit* I've been in this thread since the beginning, but i like to just read and take in all the information from all the sides. I tell you, i get more useful facts that i would otherwise never see had i not been in this thread. Talk about the American persons being robbed.

You know, this is a rather small issue in the context of the case, but I have to say I'm tired of people describing the physical altercation as a "fistfight."

I would encourage anyone who feels tempted to describe it as a fistfight to have someone several inches taller and quite a bit stronger than they are to mount them MMA-style and drop a few punches from up top before grabbing their head and smacking it into a hard cement surface, and see if they would still describe that experience as a "fistfight."

YES!!! Imagine not being able to breath while you were pummeled. Would you reach for your gun? Pepper spray? Box cutter? All of the above?

Its simple: you do nothing, and hope that he stops. If he doesn't, take one for the team and die. Anything else would be.....totally racist

Detroit filing Chapter 9 is a big deal.

Or they could cover this sort of thing from Detroit:

I could post something like this daily.

Typical trash piece of **** person putting themselves into the situation by acting like a ******* moron. If it weren't for the stupid **** with his "I'll do what the **** I want" attitude, he wouldn't have been beatdown. But no, he had to create a scene, leave his truck to an already tense scene, then exchange words with Trayvon...then have a gun with no restraint. No one to blame but the ******* himself.

Justice Department places 'hold' on Trayvon Martin trial evidence, including George Zimmerman's gun - which Florida law says must be returned to him | Mail Online

Quote:
Sanford police confirmed on Thursday that the DOJ asked the agency not to return any pieces of evidence to their owners. Zimmerman was expected to get his firearm back by month's end.

The development is a sign that the criminal section of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division is seriously investigating Zimmerman to determine if federal civil rights charges should be filed.

Sorry, but that doesn't cut it. No person alive has ever been a slave in the US. No one alive has ever been a slave owner. Drop it already.

You want equity, you have to give it. Cracker=------, plain and simple. You can't be racist and expect everyone else to be colorblind.

I'm sorry Chris, but I have no white-guilt. Unlike you, I sleep VERY well at night.

“We never endorsed that jury,” and, “If they had listened to the evidence and if they had followed the law, then George Zimmerman would have been convicted of murder,” were among the inflammatory statements Rand made about the jury.

Van Susteren then walked Rand through the purpose and responsibility of a jury in the U.S. criminal justice system. Rand responded by saying, “I have a greater duty beyond being an attorney and that’s to be a social engineer.

Mark Levin: If Zimmerman Is Harmed, I Blame Holder, Sharpton And Obama | RealClearPolitics


"Mark Levin: If Zimmerman Is Harmed, I Blame Holder, Sharpton And Obama"

Obama and Holder, along with Sharpton and Jackson have done more to set back race relations in this country than any others in my lifetime. I am old and was never a racist, but........

That's exactly my point. Why the trayvon martin case was such a HUGE deal, when things like it happen daily in this city and hardly get reported on.
