Trayvon Martin  

(Graphic by bMethe, via Creative Commons)

"If anyone should have stood their ground it was (Trayvon Martin).   Instead, he's underground." -- Rev. R.B. Holmes, Jr., vice-chairperson of Florida's special task force investigating the shooting of Trayvon Martin


Not that it's necessary, but here's a tip for any budding serial killers out there.   If you need a place in which to hone up your kill skills, move to Florida, or, more specifically, to the town of Sanford.   There, thanks to the combination of a bodaciously simple-minded state law and a selectively unmotivated police force, getting away with murder in Sanford, Florida seems quite simple.   You just have to pick the "proper" targets and go about it the "right" way.  


This is how you get in those valuable practice sessions:   Just hang around Sanford and wait for some random black male to happen by -- preferably one wearing a hoodie.   Next, simply call him a "coon" or something of that sort.   As he approaches to slap the taste out of your mouth, just " Stand Your Ground," gun him down and quickly yell "self-defense."
