Or the media? Where's Chris Matthews on this? He was all over the Martin thing, thrill up his leg for Obama and all.
For that matter, where is Obama? Like I said, when is he going to claim these fine gentlemen could be his sons?
Where's the mention of the racism involved in this crime? After all, one of the kids was all about "black power". Besides, the mere fact that they were of a different race then their victim is enough for the call of racism. Well, at least it was in the Zimmerman case.
And where's the media fabricating juicy lies about the case to make them seem even more guilty?
There is no outrage because there is no one who matters who believes these kids are innocent, there is no way the murderers will get off scott free. In the same way nobody protested Jeffrey Dahmers arrest and conviction, no one will protest this. There is nothing to defend.
The fact that you think the two cases are in any way equivocal makes you a fucking idiot, completely ignorant of any of the underlying problems that are actually in effect.
