Last year in Miami a gunman opened fire on a crowd of partygoers, shooting over 300 rounds and killing two. In Miami Gardens there were more than 25 murders. A rapper’s brother is shot in the street, and an ex-boyfriend brutally stabs a woman and her dog.
These are a small portion of murders in greater Miami. Now we have the case of a somewhat overzealous neighborhood watchman and a not-quite-so-angelic youth. Their deadly confrontation is getting national headlines while the others barely made the local paper.
The difference? George Zimmerman is white. I guess black-on-black crime just doesn’t sell ads or many commercials.
