If you've been anywhere near a TV or computer or radio or people during the last few weeks,you already know about the Trayvon Martin tragedy. The Florida teen was shot dead after being followed by self appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, who deemed him suspicious after seeing him walking towards his father's house in a gated community. Since the shooting there has been tons of justifiable public outrage over the fact that the shooter has yet to be arrested despite admitting to shooting the child after following him for several blocks. To the reasonable mind,this sounds like a case of a vigilante who let his biases and suspicions get out of line to the point that he murdered a kid who was simply walking home in the rain with some candy and a soft drink. Of course to George Zimmerman's lawyer this sounds like the kid who was several inches shorter and almost 100lbs lighter attacked Zimmerman in a vicious attempt to murder the armed vigilante. Watch below as Zimmerman's lawyer completely dodges an interview with MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell due to the fact that he didn't like the line of questions that were about to be asked.
If you made it through that,here's a video of Detroit police chief speaking at a rally here held to honor Trayvon Martin and call for an end to gun violence in the city. Click to see why I actually follow him on twitter.
