    An Aussie tourist boycott will have zero effect on the gun debate and the NRA. I am sorry that three animals murdered a 22 year college kid. However, out of a nation of hundreds of millions of people, it makes very little long term impact on the attitude of the US citizenry and our government. Having said that, it is unfortunate that the three animals will not be drawn and quartered, I suspect they would no longer be bored.

    It's too bad that these... whatever they are... can't be executed.

    They aren't kids.

    I see. Did they force the Martin family to ask them to get involved before they got involved?

    You've already lost the argument. Your opinion about my question means nothing.

    Unless you've got some facts, then you don't really add much.

    You aren't any good at answering direct questions, so you're input in this thread isn't really very helpful

    No need to study it. I hardly ever make that error. I don't pay much attention or put much effort into my posts to you.

    But a great catch on your part!

    Don't worry about it.

    Texxx makes a mistake every time he tries to express what goes on in that delusional "mind" of his.

    You can correct your grammar, but other mistakes cannot be fixed.

    Do they or do they not make a very comfortable living playing the race card? And how many black on black issues do they handle? Don't you think that if they really cared for their race that they'd want to address any issue that adversely, and more commonly affects the blacks in this country that they would at least give some time toward the issue?

    That specific information isn't public but generally speaking, race hustlers get paid to make appearances and get involved in protests. They certainly get financial benefits for their involvement. A couple of examples for you:

    In November 2011, KHOU-TV, the CBS television affiliate in Houston, reported on complaints from individuals who asserted that they paid Quanell X for help they did not receive.[23] Sandra Laday, a notable community activist in her own right, asked Quanell X to help her in finding out about her own son's murder. After giving Quanell X $600 she received no help from him and said “I feel like I was taken advantage of.” Also, Hilda Pete, who was the mother of a murder suspect, asked Quanell X to help in getting her son off murder charges. She reportedly gave Quanell X $9,000 and asserts he did very little to help her and her son. Quanell X reportedly often asks for the money upfront and in cash. Pete was quoted as saying "He's a con artist" when speaking about Quanell X.[24]


    n October 16, 2008, KTRK-TV reported that Quanell X was paid $20,000.00 to arrange these protests and to pack the courtroom during the related Iberra trial.[16]

    Of the 3 suspects one of them was also White. And they were out to kill just for the sake of entertainment. I don't think it would have made a difference if the victim was Black.

    Black on Black violence in America is FAR more common, and much less talked about.

    Seriously, Australian news is known to be sensationalist and *****ed up. They pulled some random pictures off of Facebook or Myspace and assumed it was the suspects.

    Michael Jones and James Edwards are very common names in the US. What if they showed the wrong profile pic ?

    You'll be seeing much more of Al Sharpton in the future with NAN under water. They'll have to dig out of that hole somehow.

    Terrible dishonest reporting. That isn't what Michael Jones looks like in the least.

    Fair enough, but at least the pictures actually were of Martin.

    It's the same people. Those are self-pics, with myspace angles, and instagram colors.

    Michael Jones is multi racial according to Fox, they gleefully pointed that two of his grandparents are black.

    I think a few days ago was the anniversary of MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech. Heard a news report on the radio featuring some messages delivered by black preachers from west to east. One of these gentlemen was listing the problems faced by Americans today: unemployment, declining educational standards, and ..... WAIT FOR IT... The Trayvon Martin Decision. Of course, that was just one guy but that was just one guy blasted out over the national news as being significantly representative.

    Dude. Why are you blasting Fox News. All they wanted to point out was that the half black gene was in this kid that made him go "I want to kill random White people".
