  •  The lynching of Trayvon already accomplished no? (0+ / 0-)

    A bunch of people want Zimmerman to pay for his crime and that he sees proper justice.  That the police gave short shrift to his actions, were cavelier in the actions and complicit in their conduct perverts justice all the more.

    •  A lot of people on this site do not seek justice. (0+ / 0-)

      They are enraged and want blood.  Trial or no trial.

      •  Justice is a civil form (1+ / 0-)

        that substitutes itself for individual vengeance.  

        What a lot of people on this site experienced was the outrage at the continued status quo of devaluing the life of African Americans to the point where the police couldn't even be bothered to identify the body and notify the next of kin who were living only a short distance away.  And to treat the shooter of this boy with such casual concord. For the police to have come to the defense of the shooter and to cast aspersions on the reputation of the boy, to have "leaked" information in an obvious effort to exculpate the shooter instead of doing their duty is the injustice that sparks outrage.
