    Mr. Rogers shoots teen after calling 911 to report a "suspicious person" in the neighborhood.

    A. The shooter is white, the dead teen is black

    B. The shooter is white, the dead teen is black

    C. The shooter is white, the dead teen is black

    How many times does this same situation play itself out in reverse, everyday in the US?

    The shooter is black, the dead teen is white.

    The shooter is black, the dead teen is white.

    The shooter is black, the dead teen is white.

    The shooter is black, the dead teen is white.

    Yepers, that justifies a good ol' boy protecting his neighborhood by shooting a "suspicious" person.

    A good sign of "I got nothing to add to the discussion" is constant responses that rest on nothing more than "but...but...but...Tommy always does it too...."

    Probably a result of bad parenting and lead paint eating.

    You invite that kind of response when the bulk of your post was...

    Now if you wanted to explore the stupidity of armed retirees who make up the bulk of Home owner Associations and NWC, I could write a book.

    point is, if a black person shoots and kills a white person, its murder.

    If a white person shoots and kills a black person, its a hate crime.

    I think the greater question is why hasn't the shooter been arrested?

    The shooter was obviously not acting is self-defense as he claimed, and has a violent past. The victim had no record, and was armed with a bag of Skittles. Had this been a white victim with no record and a black shooter with one, would he still be walking free?

    Police initially told Martin’s family that George Zimmerman, 28, admitted to shooting Martin, 17, on Feb. 26, after he called 911 and reported a suspicious person, said the attorney, Benjamin Crump. Zimmerman said the shooting was in self-defense, police said.

    Zimmerman, who is white, has not been charged in the death of Martin, who was black. Police in Sanford, where the shooting occurred, told Martin’s family that Zimmerman had a “squeaky-clean” record and that’s why they had not arrested him, according to Tracy Martin, the teen’s father.

    Crump said public records show that Zimmerman was arrested in Orange County in 2005 on charges of resisting arrest with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer.

    “They just lied to the family,” Crump said. “They just couldn’t see why [Zimmerman] would do anything wrong or be violent. But not only do you know the guy killed this kid, because he admitted to it, you knew that he has a propensity for violence because of his past record.” Source

    Apparently you slept through the first 200 years of American History class and didn't wake up until the teacher got to the part where white people were enslaved by blacks and then after the white people were freed the black people kept treating the white people as if they were slaves by lynching them, beating them, denying them the right to vote, denying them justice in the courts, and so on.

    So I can see how you don't understand the difference.

    The Urban Institute, a non-partisan social policy and economic research group in Washington, DC, has issued a report card on racial and ethnic equity in the top 100 American urban markets. Buffalo ranks 98th out of the top 100 urban areas, receiving an "F" in all criteria.

    In terms of housing segregation, the region gets a 71 on a scale where 100 reflects complete separation. There’s a 37 percent gap between the median income of the average black’s neighborhood and that of the typical white. There’s a 66 percent gap between test scores at schools attended by the average white and black student. There’s a nearly 25 percent gap between the share of working- age whites who have jobs here and their black counterparts, and a nearly 53 percent disparity in homeownership rates.

    Oh well, it all is their fault. White people had nothing to do with it.

    Shooter of Trayvon Martin a habitual caller to 911

    SANFORD -- The people at the Retreat of Twin Lakes had been missing bikes, grills and a few times thought strangers were casing their town houses.

    When the homeowners association wanted to start a neighborhood watch, only one man stepped up: George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old who admitted to shooting an unarmed Miami Gardens teenager and who is now the focal point of a race-related scandal of national proportions.

    Interviews with neighbors reveal a pleasant young man passionate about neighborhood security who took it upon himself to do nightly patrols while he walked his dog.

    Licensed to carry a firearm and a student of criminal justice, Zimmerman went door-to-door asking residents to be on the lookout, specifically referring to young black men who appeared to be outsiders, and warned that some were caught lurking, neighbors said. The self-appointed captain of the neighborhood watch program is credited with cracking some crimes, and thwarting others. Source
    This guy called the police 402 times from Jan. 1, 2011 to Feb. 26, 2012.

    That is just shy of one call EVERY DAY for 14 months.

    Seems there's a bit more to this story.

    Let's hear from the chief of police:

    “Mr. Zimmerman’s claim is that the confrontation was initiated by Trayvon,” Police Chief Bill Lee said in an interview. “I am not going into specifics of what led to the violent physical encounter witnessed by residents. All the physical evidence and testimony we have independent of what Mr. Zimmerman provides corroborates this claim to self-defense.”

    To claim self-defense, someone has to show there was danger of great bodily harm or death, Lee said. “Zimmerman had injuries consistent with his story,” Lee said.

    Zimmerman had a damp shirt, grass stains, a bloody nose and was bleeding from a wound in back of his head, according to police reports.

    “If someone asks you, ‘Hey do you live here?’ is it OK for you to jump on them and beat the crap out of somebody?” Lee said. “It’s not.”


    BTW George Zimmermann is Hispanic.
    I know the libtards thought Jew but as usual, Wrong!

    The shooter was Hispanic, the dead teenager Black.

    MIAMI — It was raining the night of Feb. 26 when George Zimmerman, a crime watch volunteer, set out to patrol his neighborhood in his sport utility vehicle, as was his habit in recent weeks. Several break-ins had been reported in the area, and Mr. Zimmerman was especially alert.

    He spotted a young black teenager wearing a sweatshirt, with the hood draped over his head. Mr. Zimmerman, a 28-year-old Hispanic man, trailed him a bit. Then he called 911, the first of seven calls from Mr. Zimmerman and panicked neighbors that begin to flesh out the details in the death of Trayvon

    Millions of Hispanic U.S. citizens are happy to learn that you have excluded them from the white race. Let me guess, your definition of "white" requires blue eyes and blond hair. Were you at the NCAA tournament yelling "where's your green card"?
