    Is that the Kool-Aid fountain?

    Od course, because Trayvon “looks like what my son would’ve looked like” while Chris Lane is just some white college student who got shot in the back while jogging by some “disadvantaged, confused black kids”……
    I’m not holding my breath for Barry, Jesse or Al Sharpton to be holding protests anytime soon.

    It tragically was bad teenagers with guns involved in Lane’s murder.
    Conveniently, some call them all blacks when one of the teenagers involved is clearly white.

    Pretty disparate circumstances to attempt any kind of comparison.

    Agreed, M5.
    Trayvon had the option of running away, returning to the store, or even calling 911. He ‘chose’ to fight. Mr. Zimmerman wanted to be a hero, not a murderer.
    Mr. Lane had no choices, never saw it coming, and the sociopath who shot him did it, according to one of the people in the car, for fun. “It was all a big joke.”
    Both are tragedies, but the Lane killing was much more evil and despicable than the Trayvon Martin shooting. Not because of the race of the victims, but because of the intent of the shooters.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    The black kids who murdered Chris Lane in cold blood expressed hatred for whites. The media had to make up a brand new race for George Zimmerman and concoct his racial bias and ignore Trayvon’s racism (creepy * cracker) and that Zimmerman acted in self-defense. Comparison is apt.

    One of the three kids was white. Get the facts.

    Yep, facts don’t matter to some of you.

    The difference is that the police didn’t care that Martin was shot while the people who shot Lane were arrested almost immediately. Black people get arrested, white people get to walk.

    And Zimmerman was the aggressor by stalking Martin. Martin merely attempted to stand his ground. You can’t attack someone and, when they try to defend themselves, claim self defense in killing them.

    Isn’t it great that we live in a post-racial society?

    And in all the uproar on this thread, no one but Harleyquinn mentioned the NRA, and his/her contribution spoke about how the kids could have learned something about gun safety.

    Silliness. As if any of those three people would have cared at all about safety; their desire was to cause harm.

    I could care less about the races involved. The fact remains that anyone who just wants to see what it looks like to see someone die can get a gun and do just that. If the victim had been armed, it would have made absolutely no difference. Chew on that one for a while, Mr. LaPierre.

    Again, if the NRA was truly interested in gun safety, they would be working to help reduce gun violence.

    I am reminded of a most prescient Doonesbury cartoon from 1979. BD, the character representing conservatives, walked into the kitchen to gloat that there was no way that Carter would beat Reagan. He told the others that they should all make plans to accept a Reagan presidency. After a blank panel to indicate people thinking, Zonker says to Mike, “I think I’ll shoot myself.” To which Mike replied, “Good choice. Handguns should be cheap and plentiful.”

    Boy, some people are just so DUMB, including this cartoonist. A couple of teenagers cannot be compared to an adult who should know better. The teenagers couldn’t even be tried as adults because… they aren’t! The adult who killed Trayvon didn’t do it for “fun”, he did it because he is a bigoted man who was looking to throw his weight around.
