You would think as a double murder this would get some attention from the media. OOOPPPS! Silly me it doesn't fit their definition of a hate crime.

But how about the good rev. Al and Jesse? Nothing to say? No march for these victims of a hate crime?
Obama won't even speak to the parents?

So funny. The difference is they caught the guy arrested him put him on trial and he got life. What would the outrage be about?

They didn't catch the guy and then let him go and let him keep his gun. Silly you don't see the difference. I see the above poster posted plenty of stories about this murder.

Oh how right you are. Silly me the murder of 2 whites by a black doesn't 1% of the attention of the Martin case.

WoW dont see the difference? They caught the guy arrested him and put him on trial. The martin case is getting attention because the fact that zimmerman killed him and still remains uncharged. Jeez it's like teaching calculus to 5 year olds. How about you write down the facts of each case and compare the differences. Other than that I can't help you

As soon as they catch a black guy that kills a white person and then they let the killer go home with his gun uncharged I'll be leading the march

hmmm I'm not seeing the connection here. They got justice for the murders through the court system. What does this matter to the White house? They get thousands of letters and e-mails daily about all kinds of things. Supportive letters, threats, spam, hate mail. To be honest, Obama probably wouldn't have said a thing about the Martin case if a reporter hadn't asked him during that meeting with the press. And it makes even less sense to think that Obama actually reads the mail that comes to him himself. He has people who go through it for him, make sure there aren't any poisons or bombs or the like, then skim to decide what is worth the president's time. Obviously a case that is being settled in court already was not enough to bother Obama with. The only reason this seems like a big deal is because they were tourists from another country and thus this could become problem with our relationship with whatever country they came from, if this is blown enough out of proportion like the Martin case has been.

Besides, people are murdered every day in this country, citizens or not. I'm pretty sure there are plently of other cases sending messages to the white house, so unless we're gonna flip out at our government for not acknowledging all of them, as if they have time for that, I don't see a problem here... doesn't make their situation any less tragic though... my condolences for their losses.
