so this leads to the story of my best friend's brother who committed suicide when he was 17 years old. this happened over 20 years ago. what ever his problems were that drove him to take his own life nobody really knows. david was his name. one day he decided he could no longer cope with the issues in his life. the family car was parked in the garage. david did his best to close off the garage using duct tape - taping the window, the door to the garage and the garage door shut the best he could so the car fumes could not escape. he started the car, opened all the windows of the car and put his headset on to his walkman and went to sleep. his dad found him dead that evening.
suicide isn't some political fodder for a political forum. you should be damn ashamed of yourself @007 for acting in such a callous indifferent manner.

that's why the flames of racial discord were burning before obama dared to say what he did. because there are always certain white people, quite honestly, who are perfectly willing to look at a case like this and say, essentially, i don't know whether it would have gone to trial, and then just shrug your shoulders and move on to the next partisan harangue.
a lot of extrajudicial killings of black men have not gone to trial in this country's history. why? you have no idea. nor, plainly, do you particularly care.
it's true, true, by the way. trayvon would have looked like obama's son.
