Because nothing diffuses racial tension like gun-toting racial separatists patrolling an already on-edge community

They're here to help:
Neo-Nazis are currently conducting heavily armed patrols in and around Sanford, Florida and are "prepared" for violence in the case of a race riot. The patrols are to protect "white citizens in the area who are concerned for their safety" in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting last month, says Commander Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement. "We are not advocating any type of violence or attacks on anybody, but we are prepared for it," he says. "We are not the type of white people who are going to be walked all over." [...]

Schoep, whose neo-Nazi group is based in Detroit, tells Riptide the patrols are a response to white residents' fears of a race riot.
What could go wrong?


Difficult not to notice the media, right wing zealots and other crazed Zimmerman apologists are working overtime to make this all about the racsim, I guess so no one thinks about the guns. As if killing Trayvon simply for walking down a sidewalk is okay if Zimmerman really isn't a racist.

This story can still be summed up in a one sentence. Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager, would still be alive if George Zimmerman, an armed vigilante, had stayed in his car as the dispatcher had advised.

No matter what color they are, justice demands Trayvon's family receive a better explanation for their son's death than an uncorroborated story told by his killer.
