A piss poor vehicle for the black community, and media whores like Al Sharpton, to glom onto.
Think about your average bully. Huge bully. Pushing people around. He even thinks he can push cops around, apparently.
Steals a $48 box of cigars, using his huge mass. Then interacts with Mr. Wilson the way he does. Ok, he didn't deserve to die, yes that's true, but he sure a F acted damn stupid!
Do massive bullies who fight with cops, punch them, and grab for their guns "deserve" to be shot? No. But they may well be anyway.
Very poor vehicle for "change." Change in the opposite direction...
