    I was listening to all sorts of outlets, NPR, MSNBC, etc., and the phrase is "George Zimmerman, who shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin."

    Unarmed.  

    Unfricken armed.

    I hope that word never leaves that phrase.

    •  Defense said Trayvon was armed w/sidewalk... (0+ / 0-)

      That resonated in the initial protests.
      Interviews immediately after the jury decision with protestors indicated that their sons & daughters wouldn't be protected from gun violence if they walked down the street innocently because now, after this trial, a sidewalk is considered a weapon.

      I share a birthday with John Lennon and Bo Obama.

      •  It's too bad (0+ / 0-)

        ignorance and racism aren't considered weapons.
