Re: kid shot in florida by neighborhood watch leader for looking suspicious
And an innocent teenager being murdered for no reason by a guy who was told by police dispatchers to leave the kid alone but yet he disobeyed them, murdered the kid and then as a result the police did absolutely nothing about it isn't a big story?
If it wasn't for this story getting as big as it did, there would've never been justice for Trayvon. His murder would've just been swept under the ring and George Zimmerman would've walked the streets of Florida despite being murdering an innocent kid without an arrest or even an investigation, almost as if nothing happened.
Yes black groups coming together and protesting and letting more people know about this story did play a factor in it becoming as big as it did, but this story has been getting pretty much 24 hour nationwide attention for pretty much a month now. Do you really think it would've gone on this long if it was just an ordinary murder that the police did a proper investigation and handled appropriately?
