Within the context of the history of the most free nation on earth, protectors of all that is good and noble, the killing of 17 year old Trayvon Martin is just a continuation of that nation's long and racist history. From slavery (on which their country was built), to sharecropping, segregation, and lynching (which still continues), to the filling up of the prisons with young Brown and Black people, the united states have nothing they can teach to other countries. Nothing. Here was a young Black man coming back from the store, armed with some skittles and a can of iced tea. Some jacked up neighbourhood watch vigilante asshole shoots him down for wearing a hoodie, claiming self -defense. And now media moron geraldo goes on t.v. to say that minorities shouldn't wear hoodies. What the fuck does that even mean?! To their credit, his sons immediately distanced themselves from their father's idiotic statement. Will the racist killer be charged? Who knows. Read this, from the RCP....
On the Murder of Trayvon Martin
Statement by the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA
On February 26, 2012, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin went out to buy some snacks at the nearby 7-Eleven. George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain in a small gated community in Sanford, Florida, was driving around in his SUV. Zimmerman called 911, saying Martin looked "real suspicious"—i.e., he was a young Black male, walking around in a hoodie. After the 911 dispatcher told Zimmerman not to pursue the youth, Zimmerman followed Trayvon Martin, got out of his car and then confronted Martin. Zimmerman was carrying a 9-millimeter handgun. Trayvon Martin was carrying a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea. There was yelling, then a gunshot. Trayvon Martin lay face down in the grass with a fatal bullet wound to the chest. Zimmerman was taken into custody, questioned and released. To this day, he has not been arrested and charged with any crime.
It is very good and very important that people, not only in Sanford, Florida, but all over the country, are outraged by the murder of Trayvon Martin and are making their outrage known in many different and creative forms of protest. It is also important that, in connection with the murder of Trayvon Martin, the memory of Emmett Till—wantonly murdered by white supremacists decades ago—is being raised to express the fact that people have seen this go on for far too long and will not stand by to see it happen yet again.
At the same time, the fact that yet another Emmett Till moment can arise—that yet another outrage of this kind can take place—today, more than 50 years after the original Emmett Till lynching, and that this murder of Trayvon Martin is not an isolated incident but only the latest of an endless chain of such acts that are perpetrated, condoned and covered up by the powers-that-be, shows very powerfully that, this time around, we must not settle for anything less than stopping this, once and for all—we must build a movement to really and finally put an end to these and countless other outrages that spew forth from this system, by sweeping away this system through revolution. This is deadly serious and we must take this up very seriously.

Once again the cops show themselves to be the fucking douchebags they are. The idiot in the following story not only killed some kid on a motorcycle while he was driving drunk with his two kids in the car, he was also behind the killing of Robert Dziekanski in the Vancouver airport some years ago. Plus he's been on suspension with pay for the last four fucking years. And now, the rcmp want to fire him. Fire him?!!! So when I kill someone, I want to be fired from my job, and nothing else. This motherfucker without a conscience needs to go to fucking jail, and be in with the general prison population. You don't need conspiracy theories with shit like this going on openly. Read....
RCMP seeks to fire B.C. Mountie guilty of obstruction
Cpl. Monty Robinson was involved in traffic accident while off duty

The RCMP's commanding officer in B.C. is seeking the dismissal from the force of Cpl. Benjamin Monty Robinson, who was found guilty Friday of obstruction of justice in connection to a fatal traffic accident in which he was involved while off duty.
Assistant RCMP Commissioner Norm Lipinski told reporters after Robinson's verdict was handed down that he now faces a series of disciplinary hearings, and that Lipinski had discussed the matter with Commanding Officer Craig Callens.
"The commanding officer is seeking his dismissal," Lipinski said.
Justice Janice Dillon ruled Robinson deliberately obstructed the investigation of the collision that killed motorcyclist Orion Hutchinson, 21, in 2008.
Robinson was driving his Jeep when it collided with Hutchinson's motorcycle in an intersection in the suburb south of Vancouver.
During the trial the court heard how Robinson told officers at the scene that he went home after the crash and had two drinks of vodka. The defence argued Robinson had the drinks because he was an alcoholic, not because he was trying to interfere with the investigation.
But the Crown argued he took drinks to frustrate any investigation into whether he had been drinking and driving, and the judge agreed.

The judge said she found his act of drinking the two shots of vodka and telling the police officers at the scene about it "willfully designed to set up the defence he learned during his police training."
Robinson knew that would make it impossible to extrapolate what he drank before he drove, she said.
Dillon also concluded that Robinson had lied to officers at the scene about having two beers before driving, when he had actually had five, and that he had been wilfully vague in describing the exact amount of vodka he had drunk.
The family of Orion Hutchinson broke into tears as the judge delivered the scathing indictment of Robinson's credibility.
Robinson's conduct was "quite apart from what one would expect" from a trained off duty police officer, Dillon said, and called his use of his children to explain why he fled the fatal crash an "inexplicable perversion."
Robinson's two children were in his vehicle at the time of the crash, and he told police he gave his driver's licence to witnesses and took them home immediately after the crash to protect them from the incident. He testified that was when he had the drinks to steady his nerves before returning to the crash site.
Outside the court Orion Hutchinson's mother Judith said Robinson should now face consequences from the courts and from the RCMP.
"The RCMP should immediately suspend him without pay and terminate him and then do an internal investigation of their own, which should have been done two years ago," Hutchinson said.
Lipinski said the RCMP extended its condolences to the Hutchinson family.
"I can only imagine how difficult this process has been for the family of Orion Hutchinson. On behalf of the RCMP I wish to express our sympathy and sorrow for what they’ve had to go through, and what they continue to go through," Lipinski said.
Robinson is expected to be sentenced at a later date. The maximum sentence is 10 years, but neither the Crown nor family would speak to what penalty they hoped for.
