Bo Morrison was a twenty year old black man that was shot and killed in West Bend about the same time that Trayvon Martin was murdered. As with the Trayvon Martin case, Bo Morrison's murderer was able to get away with shooting a young black man, even though there were some questionable and suspicious behaviors from the shooter.
The biggest difference is that Bo Morrison's killer didn't even have to go to court.
I also remembered that State Senator Lena Taylor voted for not only the concealed carry law, but also voted for the Castle Doctrine that allowed Bo Morrison's killer go free.
I wondered what Taylor's reaction to Zimmerman getting away with murder was, so I checked her Facebook page. What I found was not surprising, but still very disappointing:
If the gentle reader can't make that out, she wrote:
Words cannot express my disappointment and concern about the Zimmerman case, and the constant trend of JUST LESS fairness, instead of Justice in our US court system - ESPECIALLY for people of color.She couldn't even bring herself to mention Trayvon's name.
And then to complain about there being less justice in the courts - especially for minorities- was just too much for me.
She bloody well passed a bill that allowed Bo Morrison to be legally murdered and she is not complaining of less justice for African Americans? She is as guilty as the man that pulled the trigger of the gun that killed Morrison.
If Taylor had any remorse or was feeling the least bit upset about Trayvon Martin's murderer getting away with it, she would have vowed to have the Castle Doctrine repealed. Instead, she makes one lame quip without even mentioning Trayvon's name.
At the time of Morrison's killing, there were rallies and calls to repeal the Castle Doctrine, which like the law in Florida, is nothing more than legalized murder. One of the most vocal opponents to the Castle Doctrine was then Representative Tamara Grigsby.
Interestingly, it came to light that Grigsby and Taylor do not have a mutual admiration relationship. Wouldn't
