STILL Getting it Wrong

March on Washington's 50th anniversary commemoration draws tens of thousands

Martin Luther King III had this to say:
"However, sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin's mother and father remind us that, far too frequently, the color of one's skin remains a license to profile, to arrest and to even murder with no regard for the content of one's character," he said, calling for "stand your ground" self-defense laws to be repealed in states where they have been enacted.
Trayvon Martin was not profiled because of the color of his skin - that was incidental - and he was not shot because of the color of his skin. He was not chased down and murdered. Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman and was beating the crap out of him. If he hadn't done that, he would still be alive. It was NOT the color of his skin - he could have been Hispanic, white or Asian - it was his BEHAVIOR. It was what he did. You don't get to beat the crap out of someone because they looked at you or even if they are watching you.

This was proven out in a court of law. The prosecution did not even have a case, in fact, the prosecution's evidence proved the case for the defense. It was an embarrassment and waste of tax payer dollars to even bring this case to trial. So stop repeating lies.
