AH is an ex-NFL player and by salary/contract a 1%r and he is charged with straight up 1st degree murder of a black guy and a suspect in shooting another black guy, killing two others (no idea their race).

Why is the media not up in arms about this one? No Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton/Obama involvement either?

No headlines like:

Hispanic NFL millionaire kills black man and wounds another!

What rock have you been living under? Hernandez's arrest was front page news when it happened. If you're asking where's the outrage, there is none since, you know, Hernandez actually got arrested and will probably spend the rest of his life in jail.

Money doesn't change who/what the man is, only the exterior trim.

Ok.....but being 17 you can't consider Trayvon a kid (unless you rely on the 5 year old photos the media distributed )

How could he not be considered a kid when per his age legally he was a kid? Had he a 5'2 110 lb preppy big bang theory looking prepster he'd have been referred to as a kid. Had he been a 17 year old girl or a 6'4" linebacker from the local high school doubtful that Zimmerman would have pursued them in the say way. Trayvon wasn't either. He wasn't old enough to vote, join the military, doubtful if he had a driver's license. Didn't have a full time job, his own home. He was a kid. The media swung from youthful photos to painting him as an adult whereas Zimmerman is a full fledged adult. The guy is knocking on 30.

Well, for starters Hernandez and his alleged victim were well acquainted and likely had some kind of disagreement beforehand. In the latter case, it was a stranger who followed a kid around, eventaully picking a fight with him before shooting him. There also wasn't a six-week period where police refused to arrest Hernandez for his role in the shooting.
Geez, it's like explaining the way of the world to a three year old...

Uh, how about because the police dept actually did their job and the person who committed the crime is in jail
