I feel you. I just don't understand this country's obsession with guns.

That conversation is only reserved for when there's a mass shooting, because...Well, never mind.

But police are ahead of the count in killing blacks and they get away with murder every time.

The university I attended banned printing a suspect's race. Of course the video footage (if there was any) was NEARLY ALWAYS who you'd expect to be committing crimes on a university campus.

And the funny thing was probably more than 9 out of 10 weren't even students there. Just hoodrats from the city who had wandered in to rob college kids who were easy pickings. I actually knew one student (and still do, saw him a couple months ago) who was robbed at gun point by six Trayvons who surrounded and ambushed him (only 2 had guns from what he could tell).

You stated EVERY TIME which is incorrect. Absolutes are often wrong.

I think we all know why the media buries the race of the suspect in cases like this. It doesn't fit the preplanned narrative or the worldview of the media. How are they supposed to sell blacks as the eternal victims of an oppressive white patriarchal society when things like this happen? It upsets the regularly scheduled programming.

Then again maybe when things like this happen we can burn down an American city, loot liquor stores, and assault innocent people until one day a district attorney will "hear our cries for justice."

Maybe because they used lethal force within the scope of the law?!?! Say it ain't so! We're a nation that lives under the rule of law??

The guy who did the killing is in JAIL. His face has been shown on television and in newspapers...there's no need to openly state that he's Black when he's OBVIOUSLY Black.

You people find ish to complain about even when justice is in the process of being served. What is your problem?
