The parents of Trayvon Martin are asking people to mark the one year anniversary of the teenager´s death in a controversial case by wearing hoodies during a candlelight vigil tonight. Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the teenager´s parents, and their lawyers will be hosting a Million Hoodies Candlelight Vigil in New York´s Union Square. They are asking supporters to join them "for a moment of silence in honor of Trayvon Martin and all victims of senseless gun violence." Communities around the country are expected to host similar events tonight. Martin, 17, was shot and killed

Comments:
They´re still pushing the cherubic angel picture of Trayvon, now calling it an ´undated photo´.

Too bad they are paying this much attention to their son now, instead of before his choice to adopt the thug life. Maybe they could have helped him choose a path with a longer life span.

No problem with the moment of silence for victims of senseless gun violence. From what I read their son doesn´t appear to fit within that group. And I hope they realize that he most likely fits into the group that cause the senseless gun violence i.e., the criminal class.

They should have raised their boy better when they had the chance. Will Moochelle be there with her hoodie on? How about a year of silence instead of just a moment. The less I hear around Trayvon the better I like it.

Yet another reminder of the socially and politically damaging effects of an incredibly, unconscionably sluggish justice system. We STILL do not know what happened that led to the death of Trayvon Martin! For that matter, we STILL do not have all the facts about the Fort Hood Massacre, the Gabby Giffords shooting, or the Newton murders - to mention just a few high profile cases.

Public officials and law enforcement fiddle and dawdle while Rome burns. They dribble out information, refuse to make facts public, and do everything they can to slow down and obstruct the wheels of justice. Meanwhile, a yellow press and media sensationalizes the story 24/7, politicians, zealots, opportunists and cranks swarm to the cameras and microphones and begin to generate and propagate narratives to suit their interests. In the absence of reliable facts and official determinations, these fantastic narratives sprout and grow like mushrooms in the dark.

This simply will not do. Some means must be found to investigate and address these explosive public crimes in a timely manner. Delaying and delaying for months and years, while all kinds of theories, claims, stories, allegations etc. are spread throughout the media is destructive and dangerous to the social fabric. The digital age of instantaneous communication is here. Public officials, including the justice system, must not keep trying to run on sun-dial or water-clock time. They need help in speeding up responses so that the public can know what actually happened within a reasonable time frame.

Monks´ cowls? Candlelight procession?

Yup - - he´s now officially a Saint!

This day is call´d the feast of Trayvon.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam´d,
And rouse him at the name of Trayvon.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ´To-morrow is Saint Trayvon.´
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say ´These wounds I had on Trayvon´s day.´

Oh, just something that popped into my head.

FTA: The parents of Trayvon Martin are asking people to mark the one year anniversary of the teenager´s death... case by wearing hoodies....

How do they decide who will "mark the anniversary" of the stalking and attack on community watch volunteer George Zimmerman by having their heads beaten against concrete sidewalks?

How about getting "contributions" of jewelry to be fenced from innocent third parties?

#7: Shouldn´t St. Tray´s involvement in 2 out of 3 ["senseless" and "violence"] be enough?

I get the impression that Trayvon´s parent´s view of him was quite a bit different that who he really was. But since minorities always get the benefit of the doubt, they will be given victimhood status and Trayvon, sainthood.

Can you believe the utter lack of common sense that is so pervasive in the liberal black community? Or, maybe they just do this stuff on purpose.

I think I´ll make a donation to the defense fund now.

Also, isn´t the writer´s name a bit of a racial slur?

Just another black thug that ran into the wrong guy. The sad thing is that a security video could surface showing Zimmerman´s account was the truth and not a black in the country would believe it. They are their own worst enemy. It´s long past time to let blacks out of the racialist nest. Time to sink or swim like every other minority that comes to this country.

When someone starts running around acting violently and hurting people, they occasionally will run into someone that has decided to go armed to protect themselves from such violent thugs.

CCW has made working conditions for violent thugs much more dangerous.

Absolutely zero sympathy for this violent thug. He got exactly what he deserved, it should happen more often, without the media lying about the "poor victim".

Zimmerman needs to be freed.

The world has turned upside down. Obama is "Trayvon", and he is a criminal in my book. Let justice fall on him too. We need more justice for the likes of these punks. True justice, where they get their just rewards.

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business.

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will.

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper. The poster featured a large picture of Kim´s distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo with the slogan: "Bad hair day? 15 percent off

After remarks he made at the National Action Network conference this week and various actions on voting rights and equality he’s taken over the past several months, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is starting to wonder if Attorney General Eric Holder is “the Obama we had been hoping for.” Even though she admitted it’s not entirely fair to “separate” Holder from President Barack Obama, that’s the question the host posed to her panel Saturday morning. “I think he may be the greatest addition to the entire Obama Administration,” Fordham University’s Christina Greer told Harris-Perry, saying the “foundational work”

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend.

Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
