The Marley Lion Shooting Like Trayvon Martin? Story Of Unarmed Teen Killed On Video Draws Comparisons On Internet

Are the shooting deaths of Trayvon Martin and Marley Lion similar?


The shooting death of unarmed white South Carolina teen Marley Lion has drawn comparisons on the Internet to the killing of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin after a Charleston woman made an illustration to highlight Marley’s case.

Lizz O’Neill of James Island, S.C., said she used the comparison photo to highlight what she called the senseless killings of youth and that she was not viewing Lion’s alleged murder at the hands of three black men as a racially motivated crime.

“I wanted to make the point that lives are lost every day. Some are nationally recognized and some never make it past the local news,” O’Neill told the Charleston Post and Courier. “Every life, in my opinion, deserves the same recognition despite race or circumstances.”

I am going to bet that Wehrwolfen either didn't read or didn't understand the article at the link,which doesn't support his constant theme.

Apparently not. You do know who the Wherwolfen were, right? That alone carries a message.

There seems to be debate about Werwolf vs. Wehrwolf. Not for me to decide though.

Now a Werewolf, I'm ready. I have a box of silver bullets.
