Here is the thing, George, people know that it is not an aberration for a wanna be cop like you to patrol a neighborhood with a loaded gun and, upon seeing an African American kid whom you did not recognize, assume that kid was a threat, and then tail that kid with your itchy finger on the trigger of your loaded gun.

Trayvon Martin’s acquitted murderer George Zimmerman has been slapped with a cease and desist letter by the Associated Press over his latest piece of
artwork crap painting. The painting, featuring Florida State Attorney Angela Corey, is clearly copied form an widely circulated AP photograph, taken by Rick Wilson. Wilson also retained legal counsel to uphold his copyright.

“This is the kind of painting that makes George Bush look like Rembrandt. This is either traced from a Photoshop printout or copied with hack exactitude. But it is a painting about conformity and is painted in a comformist style.”

On the heels of the “Zimmerman destroys wife’s iPad in a fit of rage,” story I got this letter from the founder of the United States Concealed Carry Association. What I really love about this letter is the way the author correlates what his son did with the SYG concept. He also uses the whole father/son pride/disappointment and bully/victim construct to pluck at the heart strings and open the wallets.

Earlier this week, a controversial PSA was released by the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) that repositions the tragedy in the context of the Stand Your Ground law that played a role in allowing Martin’s murderer to walk free.
The intense ad features footage of Zimmerman and Martin stand-ins standing off in the rain and is set to the sound of the 911 calls made the night of Martin’s death.

Each week when I sit down to write a post, I wrack my brain to think of something positive, or at least relatively so, to write about, and each week events prevent this from happening. It’s hard not to feel typecast when even the most complimentary commenters nonetheless refer to one’s work as a “rant” or admit that I’ve made them more depressed, angry, hopeless, or whatever.
For that reason, I am happy to announce that for the first time in recent memory the week’s news, taken together, makes me feel uncharacteristically optimistic.

As the Department of Justice explores bringing charges and President Obama laments that “a jury has spoken”, the fact remains that George Zimmerman is a free man. Not just free from confinement but free to do exactly what (temporarily) endangered his own freedom.
