Wow, this piece came right as I was explaining that there was more to the case than the gun nuts, racists and imbeciles were considering.

and not only that trayvon was only reported because the mom actually complained about it.

there is a chance the white poeple who's kids got shot or something probably set it up or never cared about their kids..

if they did then someone woulda knew on tv...
