Where's The Outrage?

George Zimmerman                                  Trayvon Martin

Two months ago in Florida, 28 year old George Zimmerman shot and killed 17 year old Trayvon Martin. The details of the shooting are yet unknown but according to Zimmerman, he was acting in self defense.

Organizations across the country are protesting, outraged that Zimmerman hasn't been charged. The media, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, members of congress and even the president have gone to great lengths to claim racial intolerance and profiling in the case openly stating that Zimmerman has escaped justice because he is white and Martin is black. The New Black Panthers have even put a cash bounty on Zimmerman, dead or alive.

Again, the details of the shooting are yet unknown.

Five years ago, teenagers Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were murdered in the most heinous way here in Knoxville. Four black men and a black woman committed unspeakable acts to these two kids.

The trial went on for months. Ultimately, all five were convicted. Now all the trials will have to be retried due to the judges drug abuse arrest.

Where's the outrage? All the details of this case are well known. Why aren't those same organizations, the media, members of congress or even the president speaking out about this case.

If there was ever a case of racially motivated killing, this is it. Why the double standard?

Kind of makes you sick doesn't it?
