Knock Knock

How can it be that our young people are not safe to walk in their home neighborhoods at 7:30 in the evening?

How can it be that wearing a hoodie makes someone suspicious?

How can it be that a court room lawyer would think it okay to make bad jokes in front of  parents whose child had been shot?

How can it be that “educated” lawyers and some of the media talked down to and failed to show respect to Trayvon Martin’s young friend who gave an honest report--just because she was unsophisticated and  uncomfortable testifying and could not read cursive? 

How can it be that persons claiming an unrecognizable voice (according to the experts) were able to claim they knew it was their dear friend George’s voice?  And that Trayvon’s mother did not recognize her own son’s voice? 

How can it be that six women feel it is legal for a man to shoot and kill an unarmed youth?
