#JusticeForTrayvon: Racist Paranoid White America Police Brutality and Spying On Protesters and Political Dissidents

The "Stand Your Ground" law, passed in 2005, greatly expanded the legal definition of self-defense in Florida. Similar laws have since been adopted by 23 other states, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.#JusticeForTrayvon
Racism in America
Public discussions over racism
Judging people by the color of their skin or the clothes they wear
Police corruption, prejudices, brutality and ill-legal spying

In America the police and Vigilantes can shoot and kill someone because of how they look and not what they have done or in the process of doing. These young Black Americans are at the least guilty of "Thought Crimes" since most black Americans are hoodlums according to the police and their well armed police approved vigilantes .

Some 26 states have now enacted these over the top wild west style "Shoot First" aka "Stand Your Ground Laws" which allows mainly white Americans to shoot and kill Black Americans based upon their own prejudicial views that all black Americans are suspect . So if vigilantes like George Zimmerman have a hunch that a black male is up to something the vigilante has the right nay the duty to shoot and kill the suspicious black male.

So because there is black on black crime the killing of a black man by a white man is not important not news worthy
The reason the Trayvon killing became news was that the killer was not charged or even investigated properly. For instance they did drug testing on Trayvon's corpse but not on George Zimmerman.

The police also did a background check on Trayvon shortly after he was killed but the police did not do a background check on Zimmerman.

The police accepted Zimmerman's version of events over eye witness testimony and over the 911 calls Zimmerman made to police.
So a big part of the story is over the poorly or non-existent police investigation.

Bill O'Reilly and Fox news want us to believe that there is no problem with racism in America. They believe anyone suggesting there is an ongoing problem with racism in America are anti-America or UnAmerican who deny in their view that America is the most wonderful country in the world by any measurement .
The problem for Fox is that if America still has a problem with race or did in the past this would mean that America has flaws and injustices which thereby suggest America is not exceptional.

Bill O'Relly and Goldberg and Fox are also out to demonize Trayvon and liberals because they want to defend the American Gun Culture and the passing of laws to allow citizens to be better armed and to go anywhere they want to while carrying a concealed weapon.
They also want more laws to protect gun owners given the benefit of the doubt when they shoot someone claiming self-defense.

These are the same sort of media and political pundits and politicians who during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s claimed the black protests were instigated by the Communist party and financed by the Soviet Union as part of a plot to undermine America.

Ed Schultz criticizes Bernard Goldberg and Bill O'Reilly for accusing liberal media for inciting racial divisions as "Race Baiters".

Pro Gun-Lynching Fox Attacks 'Mainstream' Media Over Trayvon Martin Coverage

GOP,Right Wing and Libertarians justify the killing of Trayvon Martin because he was black, wore a hoodie, had gold teeth and tattoos and so looked like a gangster.

Libertarian Peter Schiff believes in personal liberty and freedom...and then degrades Trayvon Martin for what he chose to wear.

Police encouraged by authorities their commanders to over-react and justify roughing up Occupy protesters in New York .
President Obama and Dept. of Justice still silent over police brutality and the contravention of civil rights by police at Occupy Protests.
