"Fifteen and Shot Twice". That could a new show on the crappy MTV Network lineup after "Sixteen and Pregnant".
As always, the same b.s. with these people: "He was a good boy. He was in no gang. He went ta school. He wanted ta be a docta when he grow up".
Of course, these same shootings always happen with the white kids in Dublin, New Albany, Gahanna Hilliard, Canal Winchester and everywhere else.
And were are being told the problem is all with semi-automatic firearms.
Semi-automatics are a part of a larger problem--particularly relate to mass killings.

Easy access to guns of all kinds (the sort of thing that universal background checks and weapon-tracing are likely to combat) cannot solve all of the issues leading to this, or a good many other deaths of young black men and kids.

But, it the guns were not there, perhaps they would, as George recently suggested, live to fight another day.

The Columbus version of Trayon Martin.
If this didn't happen, eventually, he would have met up with a George Zimmerman.
Hardly.

Trayvon had no court involvement or criminal record of any kind.

Further, Zimmerman's lawyer this week obtained Trayvon's school records--and rather than posting them on the Zimmerman webset--as he has been doing with all "evidence" obtained through discovery thus far--he claimed the high ground of not attempting to demonize Trayvon and withholding the complete records until he submits what is admissable in court.

My read is that there was nothing there, or certainly nothing worth the risk of appearing to attack the victim.

O'Mara does have some other venues, however. If there is anything there that could sway public opinion Zimmerman's way, look for a leak via Robert Zimmerman jr, or Conservative Treehouse--both of which have been providing handy vehicles for spreading dirt.

However--I would further suggest that Trayvon had far more family support than I have seen in this quick glimpse of the Coleman family. Trayvon experienced the active involvement in his life of two parents, both professionally employed, and an extended family that seems to include a fair middle-class base.

Kaewaun Coleman is Trayvon Martin without George Zimmerman and the fan fare; an angry young man with a gun in his hand in the ghetto.
Busing in 1977 Federal Lawsuit heard by Judge Duncan resulted in White Flight in the 80's and a smaller Black Flight in the 90's. Several "White" Schools due to mismanaged Black Schools like Mohawk.
Actions at Linden today show that White (and later Black) parents were right to flee the multicultural nonsense of busing for racial equality and equity.
However the real motivating factor was and always has been liberal White Guilt.
Coleman fiddles while Rome burns, just like Marion Berry in Washington D.C., Maxine Waters in Los Angeles and Charley Rangel in Harlem, or Idi Amin in Uganda or Papa Doc in Haiti or (I forget his name) in Zimbabwae.
Twisty--what is it that you would like Mayor Coleman to be doing?

Martin had no criminal record but was on suspension from school for possession of marijuans, possession of stolen jewelry and burglary tools and truancy. Of course, the liberal news media want everybody to believe he is a modern-day Emmett Till. The same news media that has been forever playing the race card stating that Zimmerman is a "White Hispanic" would never tolerate the statement that Obama is a "White Black".

You should consider the UCC--they actually encourage freedom of discernment.

When there is no criminal record, you really gotta ask yourself why that is.

School suspension requires a far less rigorous process than a criminal conviction. Obviously, despite what you believe about his school suspension, Trayvon was not found to be in possession of a criminal amount of marijuana. And the jewelry found in his possession did not match with any police reports of theft. And, terming a screwdriver as a criminal tool is far beyond reality.

Not that any of this matters. What matters is that he was (according to reports) profiled, followed and killed by George Zimmerman on the unsubstantiated supposition that he was up to no good.

You're clueless as usual regarding The Church. Cafeteria Catholics are those in dispute with the Church over dogma. Social justice does not fall into that category.

Another young man has died by the sword and many, many more will follow. The Black family has total disintergrated in the ghetto due to liberal policies that discourage marriage and reward sloth, lust and violence.

The problem is that liberal Blacks like Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have destroyed the church so Blacks now must turn directly to God before it is too late.

How many more young men have to die?

and every day that passes, the population gets more tired about reading this bull.

a 2 week hunting season for criminals would end a huge problem in this country; and license fees would continue to run state parks.

Ohio killed 1 million deer during hunting season, can they match that number with criminals and thugs?

discuss above....it solves root cause.

liberals are the problem....

until they realize that punishing crime is the answer, then there is going to be a big problem.

you want background checks.....fine.

then when a thug is found dead; and the thugs background points to a life of crime, then a dead thug saves society money and is a lot safer due to the death of the thug

is that the background check you are wailing about?

If there was a hunting season on criminals they couldnt make the bullets fast enough to keep me supplied.
