That seventeen year old in Florida who was armed to the teeth with Skittles, lost his life because a "color aroused" neighborhood watch captain decided to take the law into his own hands and issue a death sentence. (h/t to Tia for turning me on to the story) We should get used to this, because more citizens are arming themselves in post- racial A-mery-ca. Fear will do that to you. As Negroes continue to take each other's lives in urban A-merry-ca and white folks read about it or watch it on the local news, their fear intensifies and they believe that they could be next. I suppose that a bag of Skittles could be like a dangerous weapon if it's in the right Negro's hands. Poor Trayvon Martin must have seemed like a trained Skittles assassin to that neighborhood watch captain.
Well, the authorities are investigating; let's see where this investigation takes us. I don't want to pass judgment on those fine public officials down in South Florida until I see what they do with the case. Some of you Negroes are already anticipating that there will be no charges. Or, if the Paul Kersey wannabe is charged, it will be for a lesser offense. (Can you say self-defense boys and girls?)
"The police department told the Miami Herald that the case was still under investigation.
"We need to get all the facts and circumstances straight so that we can determine what truly happened," police chief Bill Lee told the Herald.
The Martins’ attorney said the family is running out of patience.
"We need answers," Crump told the Herald. "The neighborhood watch was supposed to protect him, not kill him."
On Trayvon's Facebook page, his friends and family mourned the teen's death.
"I just want to cry my heart out," one commentor wrote. "I can't believe you're really gone."
Oh believe it. And you could be next if you don't watch where you go with a pocket full of Skittles.
Finally, I see that Mitt's boy in South Jersey, Governor Krispy Kreme, is at it again.
"... Christie called on 34-year-old law student William Brown. The two got into a debate over a plan to rename Rutgers University, Rutgers Camden-Rowan. Brown, who is active in Democratic Party politics, says the merger and name change would negatively affect the university's reputation.
After Christie says that Brown and his fellow classmates who are already enrolled at the university will still receive a Rutgers diploma, Brown interrupts him, shouting back, "What about my son? What about my neighbors? What about my friends?"
Christie then appears to lose his temper, saying, "If you decide what you want to do is put on a show today, let me tell you, I can go back and forth with you as much as you want. And let me tell you something; after you graduate from law school, you conduct yourself like that in a courtroom, your rear end's going to get thrown in jail, idiot."
Christie then tried to explain his behavior to the receptive audience, saying, "I tried to be patient with the guy. Every time I tried to answer, he's like, yelling over me again." And he received applause for what may turn out to be a regrettable follow-up quip, when he said, "I mean, damn man, I'm governor, could you shut up for a minute?" [Source]
Governor, that's not a good look calling a man who served his country with honor an "idiot". You really should do something about that temper.
Hey, I know; maybe you can give some of that fire and passion to your boy, Mr. Starch Jeans, and see if he can finally connect with the A-merry-can people.
