    [QUOTE=Warfish;4502317]Not quite, if the Martin Family and prosecuton is to be believed.

    But getting some of our REAL racists to see the obvious is like pulling teeth. It's ok, we get that to some, the life of a 60 year old innocent asian man simply isn't as important, to them, the media, and some with a certain political agenda, as that of Mr. Martin, self-defense or not.

    After all, it was young black men who conspired and who killed him in cold blood for $40 worth of Eggrolls. And in America today, if you talk about that in any depth, you get branded a racist and shunned.

    Same way youy get branded a racist for supporting the enforcement of Law.

    It's an endless circle today. If you disagree with liberalism, you are by default a racist. Pot, Kettle.[/QUOTE]

    Please. No one is callimg anyone racist for Condemning this crime.

    Race does not matter here. This is the action of animals not human beings.

    You mean this one in Mississippi?

    [URL="http://blog.gulflive.com/mississippi-press-news/2012/03/mississippi_teen_pleads_guilty.html"]http://blog.gulflive.com/mississippi-press-news/2012/03/mississippi_teen_pleads_guilty.html[/URL]

    [quote]JACKSON, Mississippi -- A white Mississippi teenager has pleaded guilty to murder and hate-crime charges for running over and killing a black man with his pickup truck but will not face the death penalty.

    Deryl Dedmon, 19, had been charged with capital murder in the June 2011 death of 49-year-old James Craig Anderson in Jackson.

    On Wednesday, he pleaded guilty to murder and committing a hate crime. Prosecutors recommended two life sentences.

    Dedmon apologized to Anderson's family. "I do not ask y'all to forget, but I do ask y'all to forgive," he said in a state courtroom in Jackson.

    As members of his family and the victim's family wiped away tears, he said God has taught him not to see color and he is a changed man.

    Authorities say seven white teens were partying in the early morning hours on June 26, 2011, when Dedmon suggested they find a black man to harass. Police say Anderson was beaten before Dedmon ran him down before dawn.

    Another teenager, John Aaron Rice, is charged with simple assault in the case. Authorities said he left the scene before Anderson was killed.

    [b]The FBI also investigated the case.[/b]

    [b]The case received widespread attention after a video of Anderson's death was obtained by news organizations, including The Associated Press.[/b]

    The video, taken by a hotel surveillance camera, shows a white Jeep Cherokee in which Rice was allegedly a passenger leaving a hotel parking lot at 5:05 a.m. Less than 20 seconds later, a Ford truck backs up and then lunges forward. Anderson's shirt is illuminated in the headlights before he disappears under the vehicle next to the curb. Police say Dedmon was driving the truck and later bragged that he ran over Anderson, using a racial slur to describe him.

    Dedmon was indicted for capital murder, which in Mississippi is defined as murder committed along with another felony. It carries the sentences of death or life in prison without parole. The underlying offense in this case is robbery. Dedmon also was charged under Mississippi's hate crime law, which provides for tougher sentences.

    Anderson's family had asked prosecutors not to pursue the death penalty, saying they oppose capital punishment. Anderson's family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against all seven teens, including two young girls who were allegedly in the truck with Dedmon.

    Rice has been free on a $5,000 bond. Dedmon has been held without bail.

    Is there any debate, at all, as to whether race played any part in this crime?

    Or are the offenders just black... and... and... if they were white... and... and...

    We don't know why Trayvon was shot, but I'm pretty sure why Zimmerman called the police and followed the kid - "young black male walking around my neighborhood at night".

    [QUOTE=SafetyBlitz;4502286]One is a crime perpetrated and planned by criminals.

    They are caught. [COLOR="Red"]Crime happens all over America.[/COLOR]

    Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, neither one had perpetrated a crime and one of them died because of what? A misunderstanding at best?

    The two situations are vastly different.

    Ah, more misrepresentation. No, he did not follow him because he wasa young black male (fact not in evidence as yet), and he did not offer that info to 911 until he was specificly asked to do so.

    For us to know if race was an issue, we'd have to have an actual media that would cover this kind of event as well, and ask the question, as it's been asked, over and over, and theorized, over and over, in our media.

    To assume (without any real evidence) that race WAS an issue in one, but not the other, simply exposes your bias on the topic.

    Nothing more ironic than a racist liberal who thinks they are open minded.
