|Here's kinda what I"m talking about. People like Trayvon sometimes get *used* to great hatred by people like Sharpton or whomever to try to prove a point or cause further hatred. |
You won't see this story get the coverage Trayvon's did..nor will the President be speaking about it as he did with Trayvon being compared to what his son might look like.
A hate crime is a hate crime. Period. They are all wrong. But, some are used by groups to up the anty on hatred toward one group or another.
But you miss the essential point. That article says that the KC police didn't know who the attackers were, but that they were investigating the incident as a possible hate crime. Even though the victim survived with what sound like relatively minor injuries, a detective from the KCPD is quoted as calling the attack "heinous." The article is short, but gives no indication that all the bases were not being appropriately covered.
The Sanford FL police knew who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, and further had evidence that the shooting was unprovoked, and did nothing about it. Nothing.
That's the source of the outrage.
