All I know is the kids was wearing a hoodie and got shot doesn't say what else was going on just leads everyone to believe this guy shot him cause he looked like a thug to him but we don't know the circumstances of the shooting either. so all this crap going on about not making the hoodie a thug symbol too late they already done that.

I don't understand why the shooter hasn't been arrested if the news story is true. I don't understand why Obama would get so involved just because he thinks his son would look like the victim. I guess he will take a vote any where he can get it and any way he can get it. Where has Obama's concern been when many, many children are murdered every day?
A child died. For what? The internet and politicians have stirred up this being racial when they have no clue. Now the young people will take to the streets because of this tragedy without knowing why or how this happened...they just know it is popular on the internet and Obama keeps talking about it.
This was someone's child. Not Obama's pretend son. Not the popular youtube topic of the month with millions of hits on the internet. This is a life ended too soon. If some law in Florida allows for something like this then gather in numbers and change the law.
I pray for the victims family. I hate it that they get used for votes. Our society is decaying before our eyes.

Just curious, which news story are you referring to? Is it the latest one, where there is a witness that says this kid was beating the hell out of the shooter?

I just listened to a 911 call that the shooter made and they told him to stop following the kid and stay in his car. right there he broke the self defense thing cause he got out of his car and started something with the kid. Blows that defense all to shit. He started it so it is murder.

A kid is dead. A man's life will never be the same. Families cry and have their hearts broken yet all you people can talk about is black and white. I blame Obama for keeping that going. He picks and chooses what events will be popular on the internet which gives him greater exposure and he harps on that event and doesn't have a clue about what really happened. Same as he did when he jumped in and called a white police officer racists because he arrested a black friend of Obama's. He didn't have a clue. To save him from more embarrassment he had a beer with the cop and saved our country from doom and gloom once again. Oh please. He keeps the race thing going to keep us divided. It's job security for him and the democrats. The 9 year old white child that was murdered when the Congresswoman was shot barely got a mention from the president. I guess he can only relate to people/victims that look like him. That's very racist because he was elected to represent ALL AMERICANS not just relate to and concern himself with black people.
The shooter was told to not follow the kid. Some of you are assuming that makes it murder. How do any of you know if the kid came back at the guy and that is why he got out of his car? Do any of you know if maybe the shooter and the victim had problems before that night? We only know what the news report tells us and so far that has been mainly that Obama is cashing in on the publicity of this childs death by claiming the son he never had may have looked similar to the victim. WTH Obama, wth?

But....BUT...if you say anything about Obama unless it's something positive, then (A lot of talk) YOU are the one that is racist. YES Obama keeps the thing going in so many ways and all at the same time claiming to be for all the people. Bullpoop Obama, that's wth.

Oh you don't have to now....all that's important is that Obama is on the band wagon and kids all over the country will put on hoodies and carry signs because by God some kid that looks like Obama (wtf?)was killed. I am sad for any child that is shot or for any person for that matter. Obama is for the blacks and I guess a lot of people feel like it's about time the blacks have a president. I'm mixed and I see a racist president, but I saw that before he was elected. Race war in the future...wait and see.

The double standard and the race issues that this current administration uses to keep their job security option front and center makes me sick to my stomach that my country has stooped to an all-time lowest of low levels. Divide and conquer. It seems to be working quite well for Obama.

This tragedy where a kid lost his life and the guy who shot him will never get a fair rial because the president of the United States has already come out and deemed him guilty even without knowing the facts of the situation. There are hate crimes that are committed every day in our country, there are too many senseless murders committed in our country every day but none of that misery compelled our president to speak out about them? Because he couldn't relate to those victims because they probably wouldn't resemble Obama's son...if he had a son? What is wrong with this world and the crazy people in it?
The beast will come in many forms and many will follow. We all have front row seats to watch this unfold. People have dumbed themselves down and are so lazy they will not bite the hand of the beast that now feeds them.

A kid lost his life and the man that killed him has already been tried and convicted and sentenced by the president and Hollywood and the internet even before he has been arrested for anything. It's a good money-making, vote-getting, movie-making, Hollywood blockbuster venture. It's the world we now live in. It won't last long though. The Bible tells us so.

It is just unreal to me that this story is all over facebook and topix forums in every city and got our Presidents input when I know of a young man in Eastern, Ky that was murdered in a horrific way and I know of another young man that is missing up there and then there is this young man missing here and WHERE is all this Coverage on them.......

Let's see, if the man was following him then he wasn't scared of him, why follow him? If someone was following you then got out of the car and charged you, would you kick his ass or just stand there? And remember you are doing nothing but walking? yeah thats starting something!
