The Verdict did not shock America. We're disgusted, but no longer shocked. It's what we've come to expect.

What is your point exactly? That we should just take racism in stride because one prominent black guy got off? Or because white women sometimes kill their babies?

The legally okayed murder of Trayvon Martin has zero equivalency to the cases you listed. Nada. I'm sorry you can't see the difference between all of these and why there is such countrywide outrage over the verdict. That's just sad.

12. America was a country for almost 100 years before slavery ended.

It took another 100 years of apartheid before Civil Rights became the law of the land. Now we are 50 years from that legislation and the powers against progress are trying to turn back the clock; they will fail.
We will fulfill the promise of full equality within the next 50 years. I won't be here to see it, but I know it will happen because we've come to far to turn back.

The Martin case is a step backward, but it's opened many eyes, as each one of these cases do. Even the most diehard self defense nut knows this was anything but. It was legal murder and we cannot and should not forget that fact. None of these victims can be forgotten.

30. Thanks, Mountain Grammy...

You raise an important point...I was taught that there is always a reason why things happen, and the reason for this horrible verdict may be to raise awareness ...of continuing racism in this country, of the unjust law that lead this tragedy and to mobilize people to correct these horrible truths.

Trayvon did not die in vain.

38. I hope you're correct, mountain grammy. This just makes me feel so sad.

I keep thinking how I felt the night Barack Obama was first elected. I was exultant! What it symbolized to me was that it seemed like proof that America HAD turned a page, at long last. That we had finally worked through the worst of the racism that blights our history. That we'd grown up a little bit as a nation.

Wrong again.

Just makes me so sad. But it also strengthens my resolve - that we will NOT turn the clock back, and if such is attempted, we will NOT let that effort stand. I probably won't be here to see it, either, but I hope your words ring true. For the sake of our country, we all should work toward that, tirelessly and relentlessly. And let this tragedy fire us up, anew.

Because Trayvon Martin, and that of the other victims listed on that cover, must not be allowed to have died in vain.

50. I've been a Daily News reader for many years

I don't know why people draw this conclusion it a Republican paper. Aside from an occasional op-ed by any number of national hacks like Rich Lowery or Cal Thomas, it's own editorials lean left and slam Republicans pretty good. Mike Lupica, being a prime example. The letters and comments are also mostly Dem leaning. It's still a tabloid, and it's still going to have fun slamming any pols pecadillos like Weiner and Spitzer, but it is fair about it and will slam Republicans which that rag the Post never does.

42. Emmett till?? Willie Edwards???

Emmett Till was killed in 1955:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmett_Till

Willie Edwards (1957)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willie_Edwards

James Chaney (1964)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Chaney

All of the above are clearly victims during the Civil Rights fights of the 1950s and 1960s, all appear to be victims of the KKK or related groups, no such contact is a factor with Trayvon Martin

Michael Donald (1981) was a victim of the KKK, but after the Civil War Movement had won most of its victories and had lost support from Local Southern Governmental units. James Byrd, like Michael Donald was an attack on an African American by a group of whites (in both the cases of Byrd and Donald it was a group of three). In the case of Byrd all three attackers were convicted of murder. In the case of Michael Donald two of the three attackers were convicted, the third died before trial. Notice neither killing involved am acquittal such as Zimmerman won,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_James_Byrd,_Jr.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Donald

Hawkins and Griffith was New York City Cases involving whites attacking an African Americans by groups of white youths. A factor that was NOT part of the Case of Trayvon Martin.

Yusef Hawkins (1989)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Yusef_Hawkins

Michael Griffith (1986)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Beach_racial_incident_(1986)


Thus none of these cited cases relate to what happen to Trayvon Martin beside that all of the victims were African Americans. Sorry, you need more then that to make a valid comparison.

47. I have empathy, but why not bring up the Holocaust, or My Lai?

Both have as much to do with the Trayvon case as did the cases cited. Both involved the killing of what we Americans considers "Minorities" and none have anything to do with what is behind the killing of Trayvon.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Lai_Massacre

I am trying to put this case in prospective, and one way NOT to do this is to bring in cases NOT ON POINT. The cases cites were all white on black murders, but under different circumstances as apart from each other as My Lai and the Holocaust. Do we go after Racists? Go after the KKK? the Nazis" Lieutenant Calley? Stronger Gun Control law would have affected Trayvon's killing, but not the Holocaust, or My Lai (And the killings of the three cited Civil Rights victims, gun control would not have affected for the Murders had connections with the Police, and in the case of the two NYC killings, the Murders did not use any guns).

Adoption of a "Retreat to the Wall" doctrine may have prevented Trayvon's killing for his killer would be guilty of murder simply because he did not retreat. In the cited cases, all of the victims were clearly murder even if the State had a retreat to the wall doctrine, so again not a good comparison.

Sorry, all of these names, except for being African Americans and murder victims, have nothing in common with Trayvon and his death. That is the point I was trying to make, these are bad comparisons to the situation with Trayvon.

55. The point is that black lives have never been all that highly valued in this country.

And unless that changes, one can expect similar incidents to keep happening.

P.S. Martin's death may not have been at the hands of a racist organization, but it was certainly at the hands of a racist. So ultimately, what's the big difference?

the point is about black male murder victims. the point is: there have been many of them. another point: a lot of them don't get justice, just like Trayvon Martin.
