    I think the difference is the undertones that led to the murder.

    Tragic and heinous crimes happen to people all the time, it is unfortunate. While it is obvious the media, an various talking heads, hyped up this story, I think the underlying issue (and difference) is that Zimmerman didnt walk up and shoot Martin in straight cold blood, which would prove him a sociopath, but that he accosted him because he looked "suspicious." In this case, suspcious=black. If Trayvon was white, the situation would have never arose; Zimmerman would not have given him a second look

    Plus it began a public dialogue about the stand your ground defense. Does SC have the defense and was it used in the marley lion case?

    Marley Lions killers are being charged with murder. There's no connection to Trayvon. Why are people even trying?

    I guess. I never heard the name until Shiv posted it. I googled it and it's a non story. White kid gets killed in a robbery and the robbers got caught, arrested, and getting charged with murder. Zero parallels to Martin/Zimmerman.

    reminds me of that case in Texas where they killed a gay dude by dragging him behind their pickup truck. all of the outrage seemed to miss the fact that they were all convicted of capital murder.
