The people in this country that frighten me the most are not any minority. Not the those in the projects or East Cleveland or the “bad parts” of any city. And believe it or not, not most COPS. It’s those in the upper crust with guns. Like the person who shot Trayvon Martin or those who shot the people trying to escape the flooding in New Orleans.
An unarmed black teenager shot to death by a Florida neighborhood watch captain told his girlfriend he was being followed shortly before the confrontation that killed him, a lawyer said Tuesday as federal and state prosecutors announced they would investigate.
“Oh he’s right behind me, he’s right behind me again,” 17-year-old Trayvon Martin told his girlfriend on the phone, the Martin family’s attorney said.
The girl later heard Martin say, “Why are you following me?” Another man asked, “What are you doing around here?”‘ attorney Benjamin Crump said.
The phone call that recorded Martin’s final moments was disclosed as the U.S. Justice Department opened a federal civil rights probe into the Feb. 26 shooting and the local prosecutor convened a grand jury to investigate. – CBC
Those who are the most paranoid of losing what they hang on to with a deaths grip, are the most irrational and most dangerous.
