Or media, social and otherwise – gone wild.
When did the hate become so strong?
What divides us is beyond the color of our skin, the dogma of our religions, the oreintation of our sexuality, what divides us has become how we even define being Americans.
Is this the enemy within?
Is this our ‘United We Stand or Divided We Fall’?
Common Decency – ‘The state or quality of being decent; propriety. Conformity to prevailing standards of propriety or modesty’.
The once, if not respected at least given it’s due credit, Court of Public Opinion, is now seeing what happens, when personal promotion trumps principles.
Has THIS become our ‘prevailing standards of propriety or modesty’?
A crime has been committed. That much we know. On whom, by whom is to be determined by our justice system.
Not on the parents of one involved.
Not on the social media of a dead young man.
Not on a wanna be politican.
‘A white supremacist hacker says he’s broken into Martin’s email and social networking accounts, and leaked his private Facebook messages’.
‘In addition to the Facebook messages, Klanklannon posted a list of usernames and passwords for Martin’s social media and email accounts as proof of his exploits. All of the passwords had been changed to racist slurs. (Gmail: “niggerniggernigger” Twitter: “coontrayvonnigger”)’.

‘The comedian Roseanne Barr last night tweeted the home address of George Zimmerman’s parents to her 110,000-plus Twitter followers, only to delete the posting after “not fully understanding that it was private not public.”

And of course we couldn’t do without you-know-who chimming in –
Former half term Governor (who quit to make more money rather then complete the term she’d sowrn an oath to serve) Sarah Palin
“It’s not going to do anybody any good to ratchet up the rhetoric based on speculation,” Palin told Fox News.
She then promply added regarding President Obama’s remarks –
“I think it was orchestrated,” Palin said. “I’m going to get clobbered for even suggesting this, but it is what I believe.”

Dear Ms. Palin – your comments are the precise definition OF
‘ratchet up the rhetoric based on speculation’.
There is an investigation going on. Both of the attack/killing AND of the police department and prosecuting attorneys handling of this tragedy.
Commenting on THAT is the Court of Public Opinion.
Giving an address? Hacking E-mail/Facebook accounts? No
‘Prevailing standards of propriety or modesty’. Indeed.
Our society – ‘This is the way the world ends,
Not with a bang but a whimper’.
