Horrible and tragic, but not a surprise. It is America.

Sorry I've got to disagree. A simple Google search will show you otherwise.

Oh my.Well I get these alerts in my email,and I got it last night,so I assumed it was new news .
I think the point they also were making ,is that the Treyvon case gets daily coverage,and this did not.
And they maybe meant on air news,not newspapers on line or other wise ?

I definitely have heard nothing on local news,at all.Not a peep about it.I do not get cable channels though.

So comparatively speaking,its not as news worthy as other murders ? To the majority of our media ,anyway.
I think that was their point.

Thank you for the links.I will check them out.

All the major networks have picked it up, international media has picked it up. I am not sure how you persist in saying this isn't news worthy. I think that you just liked the inflammatory headline. Just my opinion.

I got that link last night from care2,which I am subscribed to ,and was shocked I heard none of this.
If you want to think that's why I posted it,well ok,but it isn't .

If you look at the care2 link,its dated April 2,and the headline of the article says media silence.
I certainly didn't make it up.I dare say,with care2s reach,it might be why it's suddenly on the news today.I mean it did happen march 24th.
If this had been a little kid in Oshkosh,holding a bad of skittles,it would have been on the news the very next day,and everywhere.

And you say this because you believe that your average American is hateful and violent?  Try to keep in mind that the vast majority of the posters on this British run web-site are Americans and highly tolerant of others as our the majority of Americans.

The local news networks aren't going to report on every single murder that happens in the country. No it's not surprising that it wouldn't be all over every news network. Sadly people get murdered every day and as Nine Moons showed there were plenty of news stories on this issue a few days after it happened.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

How could I possibly google something,if I had not heard of it before this article?
And again,I meant on air news.
And google is no ones friend but google.They are compiling all our data,to sell it to the highest bidder.
I use ixquick.com.
Saw this at the time I posted it,heard nothing about it before,so I posted it.
I believe there are no less than 2 teryvon threads on here.
I believe this is the first one posted about this ,since it happened.
Delete it if it's that much of a problem .

Miss me?
