If I strolled through a suburban neighborhood at 7PM on a Sunday night, do you think I would get shot by a “self-appointed neighborhood watch captain”?
How about now?
If I DID get shot by a man who pursued me after 911 told him not to, do you think the cops would take his word (that there was a scuffle) at face value? Would he be arrested, or at least taken into custody for further questioning? Or just left at the scene?
How long do you think it would be before he was facing charges? A day? A week? Surely within a month.
Trayvon Martin’s problem wasn’t the hoodie he was wearing. His “mistake” was being a young black man, instead of (say) an overweight middle-aged white lady.
