Very similar case. Thoughts?
funny how in this case, I would have never known the races of the people involved if there wasnt a picture
I remember hearing about this when it happened. It didn't make big news, but you're right - it does have several similarities to the Zimmerman case.
I cry racism. I think I'll go out and riot in my neighborhood and beat up innocent people and then tell everyone to boycott the whole state of NY. Justice OR peace!!!!!!
And I absolutely agree with it, just like I do in Zimmermans case. You attack me, prepared to be shot.
But where are the Black Panthers putting a bounty on him? Where is Jesse Jackson's speech about the injustice? Where is Obamas speech about it could have been him or his son?

I don't think any case is similar unless it involves the "stand your ground" law. That was the basis for the aquittal.
I've been saying all along that race wasn't a factor, and the verdict would have been the same if the races were reversed. Few of us had ever even heard of this case. Why? Because it's politically incorrect to accuse a black man of a racially motivated crime. And no, I'm not saying race was a factor in this case, but it wasn't in the Zimmerman case, either. The media saw a way to spin it........and boy, they spun the hell out of it.
Whywould the the black panthers do anything? Why would Al sharpton or jesse jackson give a crap? If obama made a speech every time a black person hurt a white person, we'd have non stop speeches. It would sound like that list you hear every Sept 11 when they read all the names of the people that died.
...and just imagine if we had the equivalent of Al sharpton? Like anyone would even listen to anything he would have to say, let alone go alone with it. They would label him as racist, and say that he was probably KKK....and then charge him with inciting riots. It's okay if Al says "justice or peace", but ANYONE else would be sued.
