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 live in NYC,and I watch the news daily.It hasn't been on th news here,AT ALL.

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.

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 .

So let me get this straight.... In Sudan there is still a genocidal civil war going on, Assad is still murdering his own people, Most Mideast countries still execute people if they choose the wrong religion, AL queda and it's ilk are still going strong blowing up pizza huts n **** in the attempt to kill 1 christian or jew, the list goes bloody on and on... But no!; It is America, a country where it is legal to believe and practice almost anything, where 99.99% of it's citizens are tolerant to a fault, it is this country that is the source of all hate and evil. That's the general tone I keep hearing

I call it like I see it. The most hate and intolerance I see on these forums comes from Americans.

You can go ahead and ignore this too.

What happened to this lady was despicable and the FBI will spare no expense to round up the hateful trash that killed her. But it was all the news on Fox for several days as I recall. There is just SO much bloodletting that it's difficult to dwell on any one event for long.

Most of the hate and intolerance, probably because there is about 150 Americans posting for every Canadian. For the most part I find Canadian posters to be inteligent, thoughtful, funny, and tolerant. There are of course obvious exceptions. Not trying to troll here OP, but this clown's an ass.

It was in the news it just did not make on UM until now. And no, the avarage American, the vast majority, is not rasist or would comit a hate crime.

There is more rasism here in Canada although the politisians believe othrwise.

Crime does not dictate the headlines, it is the ratings over a period of time.

Hate Crime?

Maybe not...

New evidence is coming out that shows this may be a Sharia Law "Honor Killing"...

Now what was that about America being intolerant and hateful?

Seriously, I heard that all the time, despite the fact that my time in Canada seemed very much like any where else. "The same, only different", as they say.

really doesn't surprise me. Lakeside and Santee are notorious for racist d-bags. I live out here and have seen it personally at local bars.
