Walking While Black: The Killing of Trayvon Martin | NationofChange

Walking While Black: The Killing of Trayvon Martin | NationofChange

Amy Goodman's editorial on the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
NPR had a story this morning on the incident: and on the other, largely unreported, cases in Florida, since the 'Stand Your Ground' law was passed, of murders passing as self defense. Including a case in which someone chased a burglar down the block before stabbing the burglar to death. Capital punishment for stealing? And people worry about sharia law. We should be worrying about the spread of vigilante justice. Where no one is safe.
