Maybe I'm inherently biased but anecdotally speaking, the 6 o'clock local news reports out of Seattle often make shenanigans in the Lower Mainland look like a children's ball pit at a shopping mall.
Yeah, no Tacoma included in that statistic. It may also be the case that violent crime is more prevalent down South (and potentially more sensationalized). I was limiting the conversation to homicides, and trying to make the point that they were more similar than they are different. I feel as safe in Van as I do in Seatown, but the same cannot be said for parts of St. Louis, DC, etc.

LoL dumb people and race relations ...

Hunger Games' fans tweet displeasure over black actors

"Why does Rue have to be black not gonna lie kinda ruined the movie," wrote one fan in a tweet posted on the "Hunger Games Tweets" Tumblr.

Another described the "Awkward moment when Rue is some black girl and not the little innocent blonde girl you picture," while another said: "I was pumped about the Hunger Games. Until I learned a black girl was playing Rue." .... [A]nother Twitter user weighed in: "Naturally Thresh would be a black man. #NotImpressed."

Apparently Rue and Thresh are described in the book as having dark skin.

"Oh no! Harry Potter wears glasses! I can't watch anymore."

“The Neighborhood Watch Program fosters collaboration and cooperation with the community and local law enforcement by encouraging citizens to be aware of what is going on in their communities and contact law enforcement if they suspect something – NOT take the law in their own hands,” continued Executive Director Kennard. “The alleged participant ignored everything the Neighborhood Watch Program stands for and it resulted in a young man losing his life. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Trayvon Martin during this terrible time.”


Apparently, the police were familiar with Zimmmerman. He called them on many, many occasions to this report:

"Over the years, his (Zimmerman's) scores of calls to police showed he pursued shoplifters and errant drivers with zeal, reporting pit bulls, potholes, children playing in the street, open garage doors and “suspicious” youths — usually black males — loitering in the street."

First they said Zimmerman's head was pounded into a sidewalk. Now a witness said he saw them on grass on not near a sidewalk.

to be fair on the stand your ground thing...maybe there is enough other evidence to show that he wasn't the one standing his ground and they aren't taking him for his word, anymore. I still think the law is ridiculous, however, for us armchair lawyers and judges out here the evidence seems to point to him (zimmerman) being the aggressor in the situation.

If a black man killed whitey, the black man would be in jail same day, and never see the light of day again. Talk about cognitive dissonance.

Yeah but the EXTREME left media wont report it or cause a storm or bring up race,
only the"slightly" right will bring the cold hard facts about such events.
