Agree!
BUT
This was a lil over the top.
With it being such a HIGH profile news item.

The "kettle" IS about to boil over on this mess.

Hopefully the kettle doesn't boil over but the community in question can defend itself whereas in LA during the Rodney King incident the community was unprepared.

A little over the top?!?!?!?!?!

What is funny about anyone, but especially an officer of the law putting up a picture of a child who was unarmed and murdered on a night when he went to the store for a snack during halftime of an NBA All-Star game?

Are you people really that sick in the head?

And just for the sake of curiosity… would you find humor in that officer putting up a picture of any of those beautiful White children who were gunned down at Sandy Hook?

You racist bastards disgust me.

Here we go again, the big bad "racism" bogeyman. They keep the sheeple in line by force feeding them such nonsense. There is no evidence this was racist. The young loser was a druggie and attacked the security guard, drawing blood and breaking his nose. If anything, the attack was inspired by anti latino bigotry.

How could Port Canaveral make any decision about firing this Sargeant, before the trial prove's Trayvon was a thug trying to kill George Zimmerman......i like him eventually getting his job back, with a nice settlement, plus backpay......

Yes, he should be compensated and given an apology.

All of you bigots come on here day in and day out crying about “your country” and the way things are. You point towards everybody else as you spew your rhetoric about what’s wrong with the country and how society has deteriorated. But in that – you don’t take into account your role in the way you see things are.
You have isolated yourselves through hate, anger and bigotry; and now you look up and realize that you are the minority, that the power you once believed was eternal has been transformed into fear, paranoia and a sense of bleakness and no hope.
Throughout the first term of President Obama millions sat back and watch you right-wingers relentlessly attack this President with racist innuendos, blatant bigotry and outright disrespect… millions watch you right-wingers attack Latinos, Blacks, gays and women – and we sat back and watched, and patiently waited until it was our turn to speak up – ELECTION NIGHT 2012...

So we are now sitting back and watching this racist cop put up a target of a child to shoot at… and we are watching you right-wingers laugh it off as you spew your racist hate over a dead child whose only crime was being Black and walking to the store to by a snack.

You still bitching about Trayvon?
I haven't heard you say anything about the thousands of other black children who are murdered every year by black gangsters, then again we probably won't.
Your only interested in Zimmerman the hispanic shooter you libtards keep referring to as white.

Racists you say??? Sandy hooks white kids?? Hey FAKE MARINE, how about the fact that your hero, the INCOMPETENT BUFFOON, Barack Hussein Obama has and continues to ignore the fact Minority Kids have been and continue to be slaughtered by armed fellow minorities in the slum named Chicago.

Only when white and light skinned minority kids in a Upper middle class Suburban Nieghborhood are killed does the National Disgrace ..Obama, do something.

I guess rich white kids are more important .....Barack confirmed it.

More fake-arguments full of disingenuous fake outrage by right-wingers with no humanity, no intelligence, no shame or a soul.
You’ve lost “your” country because people who are evil enough to think that the killing of a child, and putting a target up of that child to shoot at – has to be relegated to a permanent minority status. The new and growing demographics of Blacks and Latinos don’t find humor in the killing of children… unlike you racist right-wingers. But we will show you what we do find funny, and I guarantee you that you won’t be laughing.
