  •  A tragic ending; a young woman's needless death (5+ / 0-)

    You're right. Our media can make a big deal about Natalie Holloway, and bumfucks like Sean Hannity can threaten to boycott Aruba because their LE isn't doing enough to find the killer; yet a young woman who happens to have a different skin color than Natalie goes missing (and is now presumed to have been found dead), and nary a peep from the Hannity squawkers.

    To her credit, at least Nancy Grace is raising hell about Trayvon.

      Of course Nancy probably had no choice.  It's the only "controversial" crime story out there right now.  But at least she made the smart move (or her producers did) not to ignore it.

        She is raising hell about Trayvon and went ballistic on Zimmmerman's defenders.

        But we should all email her constantly with a barrage of emails anytime a black child goes missing and have her at least mention it.  I did notice about a year ago that she was covering a case of missing African American toddler..now we need to get her and others to cover minority missing teens.
