President Obama, the NAACP and Al Sharpton have turned the shooting in Florida into a political mess.
How extremely sad that a young man’s life, full of promise, was taken in such a senseless manner. Perhaps this is simplistic, but could we cease referring to one another as blacks or whites? We are all Americans, and the color of our skin should not make a difference.
The outrage over Trayvon Martin is understandable, but where is the similar outrage over the daily gang shootings?
If Martin didn’t attack George Zimmerman, then why does the police report say Zimmerman had a bloody nose and blood coming from the back of his head? Why don’t the media report that instead of showing old pictures of Martin?
At the rally on Friday I felt like an intruder, because as a white women I will never experience the fear this community lives with – that you can die because of the color of your skin. I just hope the community knows I want what it wants, justice for Trayvon.
The National Rifle Association needs to get busy pushing a law allowing people to carry two guns – one for shooting people and one for planting on the victim when it turns out he is armed with only a bag of Skittles.
The president’s salary should go to Zimmerman. Every media outlet needs to apologize to him. No justice for Zimmerman, no peace.
Just because someone breaks a law doesn’t mean you should repeal it. Let the “stand your ground” law be, and prosecute anyone who misuses it.
Obama picked a health expert to run the World Bank. Why does this not surprise me?
Congratulations to Dick Cheney on getting a new heart at 71. We were told the cutoff age is 65. Cutting in this line is serious. Wonder who missed out.
Crime happens all over the city all the time. I’m sick of the media and the downtown haters playing up anytime a crime happens in Old Town. We’re still lucky to have it.
So Gov. Sam Brownback told aides to monitor legislative guests so they wouldn’t talk business. But he forgot to tell aides to monitor him. Brownback and Secretary of State Kris Kobach seem to think they can do whatever they want – to heck with rules and laws.
