It's a classic self-defense case you idiot. Even the authorities knew it from day one. This case was brought to trial simply due to media coverage and a community outcry. The news media outlets eat up stories like this...."Ooooh a white guy shoots a black kid...ooooh yeah let's cover that story."
These types of biased media coverage only do one thing. They divide. More blacks are going to hate whites now and vice versa. If you can't see that, then I do truly pity you.
