WHY IS THIS NOT FRONT PAGE NEWS ON EVERY NEWS STATION/PAPER? Oh yeah, because the victims are WHITE, and the PERP is black.

 If the races were reversed, this would be ALL OVER the news, whether the perp was arrested or not.

I was making a point, which you missed.....if the races were reversed, this shit would have been on every news station in the country, painted a hate crime, the perp ostracized and hunted down.  but because the perp is black and victims are white, its brushed under the rug.

So what if he was arrested or not?  where is the media coverage?  Why hasnt this story been picked up and relayed hundreds of times, the way it would have been if the races were reversed?

I think you are seriously missing the point of the outrage in the Trayvon Martin case.  The outrage is over the fact that the killer HAS NOT BEEN CHARGED WITH A CRIME.

The media decides what is news and this is not news.  You should not be posting a story like this because it will upset many people.

 I can guarantee you that if the person responsible had not been arrested, it would have made headlines in the media. What this young man did is sickening, and he will have his day in court, which is what everyone wants for Zimmerman.

Why are you bringing up the martin case?  There is a legitimate reason and pending investigation that has delayed arrests in that case.  And im not linking it to this one, you are.

The fact of the matter is, if the perp in this case were white and that elderly couple black, it would be on every news station across America.  It would be labeled a hate crime, there would be support groups, debates, etc.

But because its a black person who raped, shot, and killed white people, its only worthy of a 3 sentence blurb on an obscure corner of the internet.  its disgusting.
