    Just who do they think will use this behavior to defend the shooting?
    I personally know about 20 people that will pick out parts of this article they can use to portray a "dangerous thug n***r" and will agree with the "it was a good killing" meme. SW Ohio is like that. Maybe where you live isn't.  Fortunately, the vast majority of people I know won't go that far. Not going to back-and-forth with you any more. Bye.

      And the people they're talking to are going to be convinced by this article, when otherwise they would not?

      It's not those people that I'm questioning. I already have a handle on their poisonous mentality.

      In my opinion, criticizing this particular article because some racist assholes will be able to contort it to fit their particular agenda is pretty stupid. We're doing their work for them, attacking a piece that showed Michael was a normal teenage boy who didn't deserve to be shot. I see no need to craft our public dialogue to cater to the whims of racist whackos.
