Stand Your Ground=Lose Your Life

I posted the grpahic above for those who like to claim the Trayvon Martin case is not about racist/racism.  But  let's take the race element out of it and just present the facts;
An unarmed, teenager was shot and killed by a community watch volunteer.  The parents weren't notified of his death until three days later.  The 911 tapes weren't released until national, media attention was bought to the case.  The person who killed the unarmed, teenager was not arrested and is currently missing.
