      for real? i never saw any of that information in the news. now today’s daily news headlines is all about ruining the “victim’s” good name. if what you say is true what about Zimmerman. I would think the papers spread this slander because i never saw one word about the broken nose, cracked head and signs of a scuffle on his clothing.

    My condolences go out this young man’s family. All of you people asking where the outrage is for all of these recent murders need to realize that the difference between all of these murders in Philadelphia and the murder of Trayvon Martin is that police know who murdered Trayvon Martin. The outrage is over the fact that he is yet to be charged with a crime. If the police knew who murdered these people, they’d be charged in the crime.

      I have to disagree with you. This happens in philadelphia a lot and no one protests or dons hoodies in a street march. These people only get riled up with mob mentality. How ridiculous to protest a crime in florida and never do a thing at home. The people who marched on love park should be ashamed

  • ChefMofo

    Hoodies do not mean a thing. In that part of Frankford av, life is cheap. That area is a human cesspool

    We come on where are all the hoodies? Where’s the march? Another young teen is killed and this time in our area. Where is the outrage? Come on people, protest, wear your hoodies.
