    Is there no shame on the fringes of the right? A boy's life tragically ended at the hands of a community watchman who was told by police to back off - a teen armed with only a bag of Skittles and a can of tea (oh, and of course the hoodie that Fox's Heraldo Rivera blames for the incident) - and all the right can do is look for excuses to defend the alleged shooter and reasons to blame the victim. Glenn Beck's The Blaze website has stooped to a new low.

    Notice the last sentence. They've just called into question Trayvon's character, questioning the reason for his suspension followed by a list of serious crimes that could get a student suspended, but "whatever the reason". You know, we're not saying that Trayvon Martin was a dangerous teen who got suspended from school for committing criminal acts, but here's a list of serious crimes - including rape and murder - that could get a teen suspended from school.....just sayin'.

    What's next - drag his parents into it? Let's see if they have a criminal record; if they raised that boy right.

    It's a horrible tragedy. Shooter is a **** son of a magistrate.

    The whole story is horrid beyond.

    How about that white kid for just being whte got acid thrown in his face last weeK? Did the President Obama mention that poor white kid?

    Are only blacks counting now? I'm asking for a reason.

    And the reason is, deflection. Thanks. Deflection noted.

    Interesting that the more investigation gets done, the less 'innocent' Trayvon looks...

    I also note that the OP has taken liberty not to mention that the article also casts doubt on the shooter...AND Al Sharpton's role in the fracus.

    I note the BIASED cherrypicking by the OP.

    You tell me. This is a heartbreaker.

    Two people being afraid of one another. I want to bazooka barf on it. Two young men in fear of each other that sums it up sadly.

    One dies.

    Not surprisingly, you fail to see the point of the thread. There is no proof that Trayvon was suspended for a criminal act; and his alleged suspension (for whatever reason) has nothing to do with his killing. His being allegedly suspended from school doesn't excuse his killing or his killer's reasoning for shooting him.

    Yeah, what would that be? You seem to be missing something here and I'd like to know, if it's willful blindness or mere stupidity. Would the acid-thrower be sent home without being arrested? :doubt:

    Two young men? A 17 year old at 140 lbs with a bag of skittles and a can of tea, and a 28 year old at 250 lbs, with a 9 mm. One follows the other without reason, then confronts him, the person doing the confronting being the big fellow. A fight ensues and the big fellow kills the kid with his gun.

    And there is no arrest. In spite of the fact that the police told the big fellow to back off. Suppose the big fellows skin had been black, and the kid had been white or half hispanic. The police would not have arrested him? Yaaahh sure, Wilson.
