    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,

    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.

    The two stories go together very well. Trayvon vs Zimmerman, Trayvon was proven to be the aggressor. He choose to go after Zimmerman and trayvon comments were somewhat racist. Zimmerman the victim of the attack was deemed by the media a “white hispanic”. The other case the victim was clearly white and it can be shown by facebook post that the murder was a racist thug wanna be.
    But what difference a few edited spliced words on a 911 tape make. I hope Zimmerman owns that company by the time he is done suing them! All the trail proved was the original cops did the job the 1st time around. Obama like to shoot his mouth off on race issues and the media will do anything to stir up a story/contriverity if they think it could help Obama keep the racial divide going.

    If only the “kids” had taking some NRA classes on what not to do with the firearm or followed some of the laws on the books. And don’t you know if the media can declare Zimmermen a “White hispanic” the color of ones skin means nothing and they could just label the 3rd kid a wanna be.

    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.

    RE:“… keep the racial divide going”

    Isn’t that what you are doing?…and what the media is NOT doing in this case? Must be opposite day.’
    I am pointing out the hypocrisy of the media. With that truth I hope they are shamed into stopping it. This strip is pointing out how Obama only knows the Sal Alinsky way of doing things. If you see an opportunity to divide you do so in order to exploit one side against the other. Find a victim if you have to make someone into a victim do so. As long as you have them fighting against one another they will not look at what you are doing and you can lead them against something. This is the community Organizer way. Obama was more then happy to keep this ion the news. But this other shooting? Who is going to get upset that an Australian was murdered in cold blood. Is there an Australian Al Sharpton to c all on to shoot and stir? nope. so this is just another violent act, Just another day in Chicago.

    @pdchapin

    What is sad is that the cops on the scene saw Zimmerman the victim of a guy who tried to jump him. Zimmerman was allowed to defend himself. The media used an edited tape to make it a race issue. Zimmerman was put in front of a jury and after all the evidence they too agreed with the cops that Zimmerman was the victim of a kid who jumped him.
    To say other wise, well you can not really with knowing that you judged him based on the media and not the system we have in place in the USA.
