Thank you for a well written synopsis of this event. The only thing I'll add is that the jurors themselves said this wasn't about race.
Why on earth this person a rallying point when other travesties are ignored is beyond me.
Aside from this incident, here's a message to young, black males. To get the respect that you want, quit shooting and killing each other first. How is anyone supposed to respect you when you can't even find it in yourselves to respect each other? Gangs? They're for weak-minded people that can't think for themselves...but that's for any race.
