Coffee and Donuts: Trayvon, DSK

Trayvon Martin Investigator Wanted Manslaughter Charge

Just when I started to lose faith in some of my brothers and sisters in blue, ABC news runs a story that restores it. Seems like the lead Investigator in the Trayvon Martin case wanted to charge George Zimmerman with manslaughter. Looks like Investigator Chris Serino adheres to same rule of criminal investigations that I do: the one about if something looks like shit smells like shit… Apparently Investigator Serino believed that George Zimmerman was, well, full of shit. Thank you Investigator Serino for trying to do the right thing. My question now is who overruled him and why?


Blacks, Bias and Marijuana: Did Drug Stigma Contribute to Trayvon Martin’s Death?

A good article in Time magazine written by Maia Szalavitz. I’m of the opinion that good writing is thought provoking, and this one certainly has me thinking. Not just about Trayvon Martin but about our failed and unwinnable so called war on drugs. There are a lot of people making a lot of money off of this war on drugs, and I’m not just talking about the bad guys.

Strauss-Kahn Charged in Prostitution Case

I think that DSK should have a music video produced. He would be cast as the featured Lothario a la Rudolph Valentino (for those of you who don’t know who Rudolph Valentino is, Google it). He would be surrounded by beautiful women dressed as maids, reporters and prostitutes singing “I didn’t do it,” to the music of Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me.”

Dear Trayvon’s Mom

My wife emailed this letter today. To say that it is well written and touching would be an understatement on my part. In an eloquent manner, Jen Hatmaker expresses the sentiment that a lot of us share when we think of the Trayvon Martin tragedy. If a lot more Jen Hatmakers stepped forward, it could be the beginning of an honest, respectful, and constructive dialogue on racism and race relations.
