To Kill a Mockingbird, an analogy in this story is between George Zimmerman & Tom Robinson?

Here's the link to this & the letter Zimmerman's Dad wrote to DOJ Eric Holder, asking for the arrest of the New Black Panther.  Was George's Civil Rights Violated?

umm I wonder whats wrong with the link. Try just typing in the link, to see if its there. The article had Z dad's letter to the DOJ.

I think the anology fails miserably, but it makes sense that the Zimmerman's would continue to attempt to paint their son has a victim.

Yes it is, thank-you.  I think the analogy just shows, imo, that in both cases there were Injustices, as far as Public opinion. I feel there's much more to it then just painting his son as a victim.  Like, with the Black Panthers & asking the DOJ WHY they never arrested them.  For the bounty they took out on Z.  Also, I'm sure if Z was your son you would do the same.  Just like the parents of T has done.  Wouldn't we ALL do that as mom's?
