The Modern Face of Segregation (Part 2)

Last Friday I posted an article about the broader issues surrounding the tragic shooting  of Trayvon Martin in Orlando, Florida.  I was provided an update today, (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/08/family-of-trayvon-martin-_n_1332756.html#s766192) and incredulously, the security guard who followed him (despite being told by the Police not to do so), confronted him and shot him in “self defence” (despite the victim being armed by nothing more dangerous than a soft drink and some sweets/candy) has not been arrested.  I am not arguing for processes not be followed, or even short-circuited, but if he is not arrested, how can the justice process even be commenced?  Try him before a jury of twelve of his peers and let them decide whether he is guilty, but don’t try and sweep this under the carpet.
