When the verdict was announced on Saturday night that George Zimmerman was acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin last year in Florida, we should've known what would happen next.
While there've been peaceful protests across the country, including in Albany on Monday, there were some mooks who decided to use the protests as an excuse to loot & pillage in Los Angeles, just like they did 21 years ago. Yeah, it felt like the Rodney King case all over again, and it shouldn't have had to be that way.
Those that chose to exploit the moment to feather their own nests should be ashamed of themselves.
Speaking of shame, that brings us back to the infamous cult passing itself off as a church. Yep, Westboro Baptist Church is back in the news, this time making plans to protest the funeral of actor-singer Cory Monteith. As we've seen of late, the haterizers have done a lot of barking, but not a lot else to back up their threats. As I've said before, if they've got a problem with the gay community and same-gender marriage, take it up with the state governments. No, these clowns just want to extend their 15 minutes of infamy and piggyback on someone else. They claim God punished Monteith for supporting an openly gay cast member on Glee? Balderdash! Their interpretation of the Bible apparently stops at the end of the Old Testament.
