"Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficial. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greater dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding." - Louis Brandeis

A Different Take...
He was a just a teenager.
He was staying in an area where he was unfamiliar.
He went for a walk one evening to get candy and a drink from the local store.
While he looked young, he was 6'3" tall.
Yes, he was black, but should that matter?
He was shot to death that night.
His parents say he was a wonderful kid, who did not deserve to die.
...and you have never heard of him.
'A Wonderful Kid That Didn't Deserve to Die'
His name was Jett Higham. He was killed on July 2, 2013, in Richmond, Virginia. As far as we know, he did not smoke dope, he did not steal other people's things, he did not get arrested, he was not kicked out of school, he did not possess a firearm...and he ACTUALLY just went for candy and drink.
And he did not smash anybody's head into the ground that night.
I'm just sayin'...

Because he wasn't a gang banging doper, he didn't remind Obama of himself -- so no need to make a big deal out of it.
It's like Afghanistan. 10 men died there last week and I'll bet you anything that their Commander-in-Chief (Nobel Laureate and Leader of the Free World) doesn't know their names -- and doesn't care.
