Tragedy Going to Waste
you tryin’ ta start sumthin?

Here’s the Glooglenooz search results for a couple of stories in the news:

Story A: About 28 results – 16 news articles

Story B: About 12,000 results – 7918 news articles

Story A looks like a pretty unimportant story, eh? Maybe about a local bake sale or bridge opening… Story B is a big ‘un. National news.

Story B is national news – and subject of much comment-tater-ism. The search was “Zimmerman Florida”. I’m sure you’ve heard a bit about that story…

Story A goes thus:

A 13-year-old Kansas City [MO] boy is back home after two teenagers poured gasoline on him and lit him on fire.

It happened Tuesday [Feb 28] at the teen’s home on Quincy Avenue, just down the street from Kansas City’s East High School. The boy lives less than two blocks away from the school and was walking home when the attack happened.

…the teens followed [him] home and attacked him outside his front door … rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open… [one] poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy’.

…His mother Melissa Coon …

So who are the suspects — according to the one[1] nooz story from KMBC that is picked up by other outlets? [including the UK Daily Mail]

Police said the two suspects, believed to be around 16 years old, are male and have facial hair.

One was wearing a blue hat, blue jacket, and shoes with the number 23 on the side.

The other wore a blue hat, a black jacket, and wore glasses.

Well, they probably have changed clothes by now so we’re looking for “two 16 y.o. males with facial hair”? Wait. Maybe they shaved: “two 16 y.o. males.” That’s it??!? Hair? Eyes? Tall? Short Fat? Thin? Pacific South Islanders? Scandis?

Police in Kansas City, Missouri said they are investigating the alleged assault as a possible hate crime.


Just a conjecture since there are no pictures, but I don’t think if Uh-bama had a son he would look all that much like the Kansas City 13-year-old.

    Claire – There’s quite a bit more to the story, and it involves a school that should be under investigation for institutional racism.

    And then today, there is this bit.
