Trayvon Martin and Other Musings
Tired as hell...never a dull moment.
The Trayvon Martin case takes a new twist as it appears that Zimmerman will indeed get charged for the killing. In case you've been living under a rock (or just don't care), this case is grabbing national headlines for a number of reasons, but personally, I find it to be a disgrace. One million injustices go on around us every day, and because this happens to somehow be a "race" thing, the story is pumped it to diva status. If Trayvon would have been white, this story would have been a footnote.
Not that I necessarily believe Zimmerman should just walk away scott free...something was awry about that entire situation, but it had little to do with race. It had alot to do with a man who probably shouldn't have been a part of the community watch, and who certainly shouldn't have had the right to possess a firearm. You have a lot of trigger-happy nimwits parading around this country, which is one of the reasons why we are looked at as barbaric. We have more shootings and gun-related deaths than a lot of third world countries, where bands of gun-toting marauders drive around in Jeeps mowing down entire villages. Doesn't it swell your heart with pride?
