The Murder of the Libyan Ambassador

You have to wonder how people's minds work sometimes.

Way back in 1992, the police officers who beat up Rodney King were acquitted.

This triggered riots in Los Angeles.

The rioters did not go after the police officers who had beaten up King - aka the guilty parties. No, they wnet after innocent folk and innocent businesses.


53 deaths, 2,383 injuries, more than 7,000 fires, damage to 3,100 businesses, and nearly $1 billion in financial losses.

In particular there was the case of a bunch of black guys who pulled a white trucker out of his truck and stomped him insensible. Yes - the white trucker was saved by another black guy who intervened... but the fact remains... why were they trying to beat to death an innocent man when it was those 4 particular cops  who were the ones they should have been taking their ire out on.

Just a few months ago, it was the killing - or murder - the jury is still out on that - of Trayvon Martin. How many innocent white folks have been beaten up by black teens saying, "This is justice for Trayvon Martin." How is it justice, beating up or killing someone totally innocent, whom you don't even know, just because he's white, and saying, that's justice for Trayvon Martin. All it does is confirm some people's belief that the "white Latino" George Zimmerman was perfectly justified in thinking the black Travyon Martin was up to no good "Just because he was black."

Now we get this thing in Libya. Some Jewish-American in the US apparently has made a movie critical of Mohammed. So some radical sect in Libya decides that every American in Libya must die because of what one individual has done?

And then there's the fact that the Ambassador was taken to a secure facility and yet these folks still managed to murder him?
