    Roderick Scott - Black man kills unarmed white teenager - age 16

    Jury Finds Roderick Scott Not Guilty Rochester, NY - YouTube

    Roderick Scott: ?I had to protect myself? - Canandaigua, NY - MPNnow

    This case is very similar to what happened in the Zimmerman case. One difference is that Mr. Scott was arrested almost immediately, however, this happened in New York (and we all know how NY is on gun control plus they don't have any 'Stand your ground' laws).

    I've heard a lot of rhetoric over the last year, including from President Obama Friday afternoon about the race reversal scenario (if Zimmerman was black and Trayvon was white). For the record, 11 of the jurors that acquitted Mr. Scott were 'crackers' (like me).

    Wow... it's weird that I have never even heard of this case, huh? But here's the real message: black, white, Asian, or Hispanic... if you act like a thug expect the "victim" to treat you like a thug.

    This part of the story sounds familiar also. Of course, there weren't any marches or rallies for Christopher Cervini.

    Cervini's family members say justice wasn't served. They say Christopher was murdered in cold blood, that he'd never been in trouble and Scott acted as judge, jury and executioner.

    "The message is that we can all go out and get guns and feel anybody that we feel is threatening us and lie about the fact,” said Jim Cervini, Christopher’s father. “My son never threatened anybody. He was a gentle child, his nature was gentle, he was a good person and he was never, ever arrested for anything, and has never been in trouble. He was 16 years and four months old, and he was slaughtered."

    I can't believe this is the first I'm hearing about this.

    I'd love to see someone ask Holder how the civil rights violation investigation is proceeding in this case. Of course we all know his answer. "The jury spoke...Case Closed"

    Do a Google search and you will find a dearth of information. Guess it does not fit the narrative.

    Scott was foolish to confront three people with a gun - he should have stayed inside and called the cops - but, on the other hand, if what he says is true, his actions were not criminal.

    There were witnesses, the jury heard the evidence, and found him not guilty. And in New York to boot.

    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    It doesn't even seem as if an assault took place - just the prelude to one.

    In my mind, I don't know if this qualifies as a clear-cut case of a "defensive" shooting - I understand why the prosecutor chose to press charges, but I also see why the jury chose to return a "not guilty" verdict.

    And yes - the racial split being opposite to the GZ case has resulted in NO national media coverage, although this case is aguably less clear.

    If there's no profit potential for the MSM, they will never consume their air/print time with anything. A black guy shooting a white kid? The media truly couldn't care less. Nothing there to sensationalize. Can't stoke the minorities with that. No money to be made.

    I believe disparity of force probably came into play in the juries mind. 3 on 1 with 1 of them advancing on the homeowner. Did he fear for his safety. Evidently the jury felt he did and was justified to shoot. I don't think many of us here would wait to be physically assaulted either.

    For something to be news worthy it must be rare. This case making national news would be like the sun rising in the east making national news.

    Please forward this link and story to sanford.florida@usdoj.gov

    We need the doj to open up an investigation...and President Obama to go over every aspect of the case with a fine tooth comb.
    I would hope that everyone that finds this case compelling to spread it by any means. Post it to your facebook page if you have one. Post it in the comments section of news articles (this is where I learned of it, by reading the comments), email it, tweet it; just whatever. The MSM isn't going to report on it unless they have to.

    I support Mr. Scott from what I've read.

    Edit (add) - this isn't nor should it be a tit-for-tat between whites v. blacks (or Hispanics in the case of Zimmerman)

    We have had a few stories, including this one recently posted which refute the MSM/administration/pot stirrer story lines. Too bad they will never receive significant recognition.
    The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.
