It's an inconvenient truth.

Where's the CHICAGO (local) media attention? I don't see any of this on the front page of the Chicago Tribune.

Check the Trib in the morning. They have a box with overnight shootings and homicides. The SunTimes has a whole section on its front webpage called Homicides.

Without diminishing teh imporance, teh severity should also be assessed based on teh amount of publicity. If we had 20 weekend shootings and 3 homicides and it was not front page news half the people and especially the non- Chicago people would not think twice.

Ten years ago or so ( maybe as longer as May 1988 after the Laurie Dann shootings) there was outrage that so much press was given to white kids who were hot and so little given to black kids. Then the outrage went to missing cute white girls and no one else. The major Chicago news sites did start front page articles about all kids who were reported missing; there is almost never a report on resolution.

What does the local media attention have to do with that pig sharfpton and his rabid tirades? Why is he not lamenting those people who died? Oh, right, no controversy, so no money.

My only point was, why should someone like Sharpton make a stink (isn't he based in NYC?) when the locals aren't even bothering?

I just googled Sharpton to verify that he's from NYC (he is)-- have you seen him lately? He's lost a lot of weight and got a younger girlfriend.

Eew. Al Sharpton's dad left his wife (Al Jr's mom) to hook up with his own half-sister.

That is horrendous. What happened to the law and due process and all that stuff? Since when does an angry mob get to decide what happens?

"People can e-mail [email protected] if they have thoughts on how the department should proceed."

Um, no. I do not want public opinion weighing in on matters of law.

That jury screwed up. Now it's okay to pick a fight with someone, then when they get the upper hand, shoot them and cry self defense.

The Justice Department is the same team that sent a group to Florida to drum up support for Travon, thereby nationalizing this issue.

But I actually love to see Liberals pzzing all over themselves and looking like idiots. As usual. That's why liberalism is dying -(whatever happened to those 99%ers anyway?)

The problem was, Zimmerman just wasn't white enough. Maybe the guvment will have better luck with the next white guy who shoots a black guy in self defense.

Meanwhile, black on black crime in Chicago is on the rise...

Is this a "public opinion" or were you in the courtroom?

He may be from NYC, but he is based in chitown now with his shakdown buddy Jesse.

Like that angry mob of white, Christian, Republican men who try to tell a woman what she can and can't do with her own body!?

Or that mob of gay protesters?

Or all those hippies trying to ban oil?

Smoking bans, gun bans, school lunch bans??

America has let an "angry mob" make its decisions for so long now, it may be hard to go back.

Oh, please -- Sharpton will run his mouth and have a tirade about anything including kids getting shot.

He'll do anything for publicity. He's probably too busy getting more publicity elsewhere.

Because when I'm stalking someone with the evil intent on causing him/her harm, I always make sure I'm on the phone with 911 first...
