    The unidentified man sold gun targets depicting the slain Florida youth for $8 for a package of 10, plus $7.50 shipping and handling. He claims he sold out in two days.

    The gun target is faceless; yet the seller admits it is a depiction of Trayvon Martin who was shot to death last February by George Zimmerman.

    That guy is a complete scumball and so is anyone who buys one of those targets.

    It's sad that such blatant racism still exists today when the murder of an innocent 17-year-old can be glorified and the outrage against the murder can be ridiculed as yellow journalism. Is human life as cheap in America as it is in a third world nation?

    Yep. Blame alot of it on the media - but since we (as a society) buy into the shit they shovel, it's our fault too.

    Might be worth some study. We as humans are drawn in by the anxiety or maybe the adrenalin rush. But media SENSATIONALIZES prejudice, for their own profit. Which of the two is evil ?
    Should we regulate the media or bitch slap the followers for not reading between the lines ?

    The media sensationalizes everything: war, natural disasters, politics, crime. That is no excuse whatsoever for doing something as despicable as buying or selling a Trayvon Martin target.

    First of all, it's arguable a terrorist threat by legal definition and a hate crime. Second, image how Trayvon's mother must feel upon hearing that some asshole is making a profit off of her son's death by selling shooting targets of him. I'd suggest that the sue the son-of-a-bitch for using her son's likeness without permission and causing severe emotional trauma. Every penny he made should be awarded to her.

    Just image if your child had been murdered and some idiot started selling targets of him or her. Wouldn't you want to string that idiot up by the balls?

    I thought your headline had something to do with that story falling off the edge of the earth.

    Did somebody mention the "Crying Wolf" story.
