Video: MHP Show: Similar Patterns Arise After Previous Unjust Killings of Young Black Men. Trash the Victim's Past #Justice4Trayvon

Mellisa Harris Perry and her guests talk about how unjustified killings of young black men are followed by sources releasing "news" aimed at trashing the victim's character. We sure have seen that this time. It's part of the plan to get people to just accept the criminal action because, you know, he might have smoked some weed at some time.

That according to some right wingers is ample reason for a man with repeated management anger problems which could have lead to possible felony convictions, but for some mysterious reason (cough family connections? cough) didn't, to shoot an unarmed teen who was doing nothing but walking home that night.

He used the demon weeeeeeeeedddddddddddd! 

For politicians and their attendant journalists getting you to accept what happened as settled and done is more important than seeing a crime exposed and punished. But punishment deferred can become punishment abandoned, in which case it usually gives an abuser the feeling of safety that tells him or her to go ahead and do it again, even escalate his or her aggressive activities. This is why George Zimmerman needs to face trial if there is any possibility that prejudice not innocent personal safety issues led to the death of Trayvon Martin.

If a criminal is escalating his or her crimes, you have to ask who is the next victim?  Is it someone you love?
