  • Where’s all the national attention for death of black teen in Canton?

    • email print
  • Why are Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the New Black Panther Party and the networks not here to exploit the shooting of Anthony Moore (“Shooting victim, dropped at Canton gas station, dies,” April 17)? While the circumstances surrounding the shooting of Trayvon Martin and Anthony Moore differ, the results are identical: Two young black men are dead, shot to death.
    Why has a bounty not been placed upon the head of the young black man who is clearly displayed on the video tape at the BP station, whether we know the facts of his implication or not?
    For those who do not recognize or know how to interpret the difference between these separate but similar incidents, this is a teaching moment, if they are willing to learn.
