[quote user="dezzzR"][quote user="Kase-1"][quote user="MattMeyerBud"][quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="MattMeyerBud"]i completely understand the hate for the media, i have it too
but bottom line, you have an unarmed teen shot to death for just walking through a town.
its justified. Just because the media blows most of the time, doesn't mean that its propaganda machine 100% of the time.[/quote]
so it's justified to have bounties on this guy before he's even been convicted, it's justified for the media to stir up hatred for this person before he's even had his trial? it's justified for innocent people who have nothing to do with Zimmerman to fear for their lives as crazy bang on their doors and demand that they produce him? no I don't think that's true Matt, I think this is all unjustified, I think the man deserves a fair trail...and if (only if!) he is convicted of the crime, then sure, hate him all you want...but until he's convicted I think it's dangerous to report on him as though he were.
[quote user="MattMeyerBud"]Your just as bad as those who buy into the propaganda machine about every little thing (ya know, those people spreading awareness about every ****ing thing that they know nothing about on facebook), because you take the complete opposite extreme and just oppose anything that comes out on it. Find a balance
I think I am pretty balanced Matt, I think society has gone of the deep end that's the problem....
did you take this side of the argument for Timothy McVeigh? For OJ?
I mean come on man... this guy shot a kid in cold blood. He had NOTHING on him and this guy isn't even suppose to have a weapon on him.
I would considered you probably the lease balanced out of everybody in here when it comes to these debates.
[/quote]I think even Morehead has been more balanced on this issue and we all know where me and him stand on political issues, LOL
IMO, Dezz and Daven have gone off the deep end on this one
[/quote]Why cause I put that picture up? my friend put that up on facebook, he also happens to be black. its not racist is it?
I think Iv been very balanced. Iv showed multiple news articles of shootings just as bad if not worse than this and it doesnt get the coverage and you pretty much responded too bad on the double standard issue
[/quote]Racist, nah. Tasteless, yes
You're making it seem like its my fault somehow that these crimes arent getting the press attention. Hell my only media outlet was when I had a radio show in college, LOL and that was years ago
These crimes are horrendous and deserve to be known on a national level, but theyre only known on a local level for the most part
Double standards are terrible and we should be past that as a society, but that doesnt mean we should be insensitive because double standards exist
