Since Zimmerman shot Martin on 2/26/2012 about 20,000 Americans have been murdered. Why do we care so much about this single case and completely dismiss all the others?

It's a bit disingenuous to say people dismiss every killing in America other than Martin's because they're reacting to the most salient news issue of the day.

A white looking man shot and killed an unarmed black teenager. That is why this became a sensational story.

Black on black violence doesn't get reported unless a kid dies.

White on white violence doesn't get reported unless a kid dies.

White on black violence get's reported almost every time, for various reasons.

Black on white violence get's reported for the same reason.

In a sensible place, this would be the end of concealed carry laws... but this is the United States of 'Murica.

I assure you Florida has no stupider news than Ohio. And it pains me to say that.

Because, this wasn't just a murder case. It was an epic battle between the races w/ political motivation.

The facts are irrelevant. Zimmerman represents racism in the US. Trayvon Martin represents black victims everywhere. Zimmerman acquittal represents that the courts are racist and the US justice system is unfair. Again the details of the court case are irrelevant.

Facts, and statistics should be ignored for a story with a good narrative.

I was essentially ignoring this case until I saw all of the idiotic comments that people have been making, like "He's a wannabe cop, but it's ok because he killed a wannabe thug" and "those savages will riot if he's acquitted!" Nobody injected any race into this case except you trolls. You made it about race so that you could let the repeat offender walk free.

What makes you think we completely dismiss all the others?
