    Trayvon did not have a pass to be in the neighborhood where he was shot and killed.

      We have come to tolerate far too many extra-judicial killings, and have vigilantes openly bragging about their intent to be prepared to kill someone on the smallest potential provocation.

      The extraordinary number of extra-judicial killings by police are, in my mind (even though they are LEOs) evidence that police are often operating as vigilantes too.

      They do so with relative impunity. All of which leads me to believe that guns and beatings and even execution by lethal injection, have merely replaced public hanging and beatings as "fashionable" methods for justifiable homicide.
