Your assertion is ridiculous. The police can't hide a shooting under the rug. Shootings happen every day in this country--particularly younger people. Just look at what's going on in Chicago weekly. Why do none of those stories ever make it to the national media?<quoted text>Don't flatter yourself dummy the only reason I read your posts is that in between your racist rants you actually talk case, rare on the Trayvon threads. What's Nifong got to do with this case?
Very few people anywhere knew of this Martin case until weeks after it happened because SPD was ducking and weaving in hopes that it would go away. George was cooperating by massaging his version of events in ways that would better line up with the time line as recorded on the NEN and 911 calls.
The girl, DeeDee was always going to be a poor witness, easily impeachable, she was three hundred miles away with zero knowledge of the place where Trayvon was. And she too was overlooked for weeks by the SPD which never even considered that the deceased's telephone might hold a clue.
The SPD bought lock stock and barrel into George's story assuming that the dead guy was an adult thug up to no good. Good riddance!
They were shtng all over themselves the next morning weren't they sally?
This entire story is about race and race only. The police had nothing to do with that, nor did they hide anything. The local Fox interview with John the witness proves that. They were out there the very next day getting the interview. I have the link if you so desire.
The media focuses on selling newspapers and getting people to their news station or internet site. If it's not race, it's usually about a hot chick in trouble. Hell, we have children getting killed by their mother or father at least once a month here in Cleveland, but nobody cares about those kids because they are black and their mother isn't a cutie. It's not a national story nor will it get the same audience like Casey Anthony.
Travon Martin is the perfect political story. A guy with a CCW permit shooting an unarmed black kid who attacked him. It quickly formed a political dichotomy--partly because of race, and partly because of the stance conservative and liberals take on guns. It's well over a year, and we are still talking about this case. It's likely we will be talking about it months after it's finally over.
