    Link: 2 Teens Light A 13-Year-Old On Fire, Left To Die - You`ve heard about the Zimmerman case but not this. Does the fact that it`s a Black on White crime make a difference?

    No that doesnt make a difference! The fact that you even have to ask that is what is wrong with the world.

    The reason Trayvon`s death is getting so much attention isn`t just because it`s a white(hispanic) on black crime. Also, glad to hear that the kid survived!

    It`s not getting media attention because everyone that has half a brain will realize both of those kids will spend the rest of natural lives behind bars. It was an obvious hate crime and that automatically comes with stiffer penalties.

    Hate crimes are hate crimes, whether they are black on white or white on black or some other variation. One is no worse, or better than the other.

    "white(hispanic)!!?? buy into the hype much?"

    Have you ever filled out a form, where you have to choose that you`re white (non-hispanic)? I fill out forms like that all the time, because there are hispanic people who are considered "white (hispanic)". Also, as far as I know, Zimmerman is biracial, so white & latino.

    Regardless (though I swear it happens, it was in a lot of forms I filled out for school stuff/scholarships recently), he`s biracial, white+hispanic as far as I know. People calling him hispanic are no more wrong than people calling him white, and white(hispanic) is an accurate description.

    Although white(hispanic) is a perfectly fine description, I`m fairly positive the media is intentionally only using the white part to invoke emotion and get views.

    Biracial doesn`t describe his RACE. Biracial is extremely vague and gives no description whatsoever of him. Biracial can be anything literally as long as the parents aren`t the same race. White(hispanic) or white/hispanic or white+hispanic are much more accurate.

    I think people are missing the point, its the fact that Zimmerman wasn`t arrested or charged for the killing. If the kid was white, i`m pretty sure Zimmerman would be locked up by now or given the death penalty.

    Sigh...two points.

    1) Contrary to what the media tries to assert, the Trayvon Martin case is not racial (that we know of). No clear evidence has come forward on that.

    2) The Trayvon Martin case is about a crappy self-defense law. These kids will be prosecuted if/when they are found.

    By the way, this case has been reported in the media. I`ve seen other stories on it. The only reason the Trayvon Martin case ever got so big was because the police had the killer but didn`t arrest him. The racial dialogue piled on after that started.

    It happened nearly a month ago, it already missed the window for media attention. The Dems don`t want you to know about any of /their/ people killing white kids, why do you think they`re leaving out the "Zimmerman is a registered Democrat" thing from every story? White-Hispanic who shot a black boy MUST be a Republican!

    More nonsense from Leesah. As I said, this story was covered in the media. It`s different because Zimmerman was allowed to walk free because of a terrible law. These kids will be prosecuted because there is no gap in the law that will let them get away with it, like what happened with Zimmerman.

    I won`t even begin to comment on the racial hostility implied in your comment.

    Is this a joke how is it similar to Zimmerman case?

    We know who killed Trayvon Martin and he wasn`t charged and has yet to be charged if national attention wasn`t brought to the case Zimmerman would be living his normal daily life.

    What`s next are you gonna compare Stanford with your last blood drive when your black volunteer stuck you with a needle to draw blood *GASP*, so let`s clear Zimmerman of any wrong doing to even it out?

    Wait a minute. They don`t even know who the attackers are? Of course this wouldn`t make national news. It can`t even be varified that he was attacked at all.

    This sounds a lot like the story of the girl who threw the acid in her own face and blamed it on a black person. No national news corporation in their right mind would pick up this story!

    When motives matter more than the actual crime, there is a problem. It`s a fine line between having laws for actions and laws for thoughts. Just before reading the rest, I don`t support racism at all.

    But you can`t outlaw ideas. People are going to hate other people not of their own type. People are going to believe other things. Yes, it is a slippery slope and one I would like to avoid altogether because it is wrong. The second you add additional penalties to things because of motives or personal convictions is the moment where free thought is abolished.

    But that`s already happened. So what am I arguing about?

    "The second you add additional penalties to things because of motives or personal convictions is the moment where free thought is abolished. "

    So if I kill someone accidentally I should be treated the same way as a complete lunatic who just wants to murder people?

    The motive matters to the crime. Killing someone in self defence isn`t the same as killing in cold blood. Having an heart attack while driving and ending up hitting someone is not the same as running them over because that guy did your wife.

    If the law did not take motive into account then it wouldn`t be fair at all, it would be just end up punishing good people when they`re not really at fault.

    The races are flipped; that`s why it isn`t on the news.

    A horrible, repulsive and disgusting crime. In answer to the question posed in the strapline of this thread: does the fact that the perpetrators were black and the victim was white make a difference? Not in itself, no. Does the fact that the perpetrators made it about race by making their motives clear via their racist comments during the commission of the crime make a difference? Yes, it certainly does, it escalates this into a hate crime, with different additional penalties attached, and rightly so.

    In answer to the fact that the thread poster mentioned the Zimmerman case: it`s for you to consider why you immediately thought of that separate and unrelated case when presented with this disgusting, racism-fuelled hate crime.

    Do any of these news services indicate that they use Google Earth? Get your lawyers ready, Google, it`s knuckle-puck time!

    This is a terrible story and my heart goes out to the family and the poor child. But I don`t think that is why this isn`t on the news. The police here are pursuing the case, it is just that the suspects ran away and their identities are unknown. In Trayvon Martin`s case the attacker was an adult, killed an unarmed child, and was never arrested. The fact that he is the known perpetrator and not arrested is what makes it so different. I would be equally outraged no matter what trayvon`s ethnicity was because the known killer is free.

    @grindinblade:

    In Trayvon Martin`s case the defender was an adult, shot an unarmed child in self defense, and was never charged.

    *fixed*

    He`s 17 which is old enough to be held accountable as an adult; the cute 13 year old is a 7 year old picture. He`s a gang tatted over 6 foot man. The kid was not carrying an extra weapon, however, if the little evidence made public so far is worth anything he was using his body as a weapon. He is walking free because the DA doesn`t feel that they have enough to hold him at this time based on available evidence. The fact that so many people are making an issue of this despite most of us knowing nothing really about what evidence is being looked at is clear enough evidence of prejudice on its own.

    The media portrayed him as an innocent, candy loving child and Zimmerman as a cold blooded criminal vigilante. That was how the media pushed it and caused an uproar. Since then it has come out that Zimmerman cried out for help minutes before he fired, and that the kid was not a small, innocent, child. Kids at his school have said he was a bully, it`s been brought out he has gang tattoos. It`s come out that Zimmerman had some pretty serious wounds suggesting that he took quite a beating and tried to get help before firing a weapon he was legal to carry. None of these things I`ve said make wither side innocent or guilty, I have no idea. I do know that that is enough reasonable doubt to need more evidence before condemning a man as guilty as so many seem to already believe. Unfortunately, thanks to biased reporting, many people won`t believe otherwise if the evidence contrary facedrated them.

    Plus, with people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and an organization like the black panthers it doesn`t matter what evidence says, they will push for blood no matter what.

    @PinkRhold-have you seen the latest video of Zimmerman at the police station right after the incident? Doesn`t look like he was in ANY kind of struggle. No blood anywhere, clothes look fine, nothing on the back of his head. hmmmm. I would think if he shot while Trayvon was on him he would have blood on him, not to mention his own "broken nose".

    Sorry, I guess I`m not sensationalistic enough to take one blurry video as definitive evidence. Having sat on a murder trial I have a weird desire to see all the evidence including medical reports from doctors before I simply condemn a man to death or life in prison (in his case means death anyways). I broke my nose once and it barely bled at all for me. I will say if he had a cut on his head I didn`t see it but again it`s not exactly a high definition video and it may not have shown much bruising etc. for several hours. There are so many factors to consider that will come out during the investigation that will paint a bigger picture. Until then people are calling for blood prematurely and need to be patient no matter how tragic this is and make a sound decision with all the evidence possible. So far most of what we;ve seen is bad journalism and sensationalistic bullpoo.

    I know there is a lot of bias in the world still, and I have a receding trust in the law enforcement community so I know a bit of discretion is needed to swallow anything they say without thought. All the same, if in the end most of the medical reports, witness reports, and police reports point to one way then it would be absurd to think that many sources were all lying to screw over one of them or the other. And if the system provides all the evidence one way or the other and we aren`t willing to accept it as a whole picture than what`s the point of the system at all? May as well go back to mob justice, then it`ll be real fair... Wait for all the info before weighing it all, seeing the whole picture, and making a decision. At this point if it comes out he looks guilty he will be picked up, charged, and he will get his. As it stands, if it comes out he is innocent he will still likely be picked up by someone other then law enforcement, and likely killed.

    @ MacGuffin It was compared to Zimmerman Case in the comment and elsewhere all over the internets, that`s kind of why people think of this (*agreed*) separate and unrelated case.....

    Kind of how people say "MSM" is it? Baits people into hearing Zimmerman "C**n", same mind trick.

    Unfortunate that this happened. But Trayvon Martins case is different in the respects that those boys probably got locked up at the end of the day, where as Zimmermand didn`t. That`s what I found most appalling. If you shoot someone you get locked the drat up. Especially if you`re following them in the first place.

    I also think that this is a media ploy to rein gun control.I think it maybe that after Obama works on the first amendment he`s going to work on the second.

    I`m so glad that boy is going to eventually be ok. The boys who did that to him should be thoroughly prosecuted! S/N am I the only one who found it ironic that the boys last name is Coon?

    The attackers could be heard muttering, "drating Coons" on tape.

    "But Trayvon Martins case is different in the respects that those boys probably got locked up at the end of the day, where as Zimmermand didn`t."

    Except it hasn`t been proven that Zimmerman did anything wrong. You are allowed to use deadly force to protect yourself and NOT be arrested for it.
