Can massacre in Newtown break pattern of US indifference to gun violence and cultural depravity that allows it?


Outrage and actions still growing in the wake of the Florida murder of Trayvon Martin: a new police chief and prosecutor, possible civil rights and grand jury charges , angry commentary, rallies and a Million Hoodie March in New York, a petition that now has over a million and a half signatures, many bearing poignant comments. And LeBron James and Samuel Jackson stepped up. Over at Fox , though, readers declared Martin "a little thug ghetto monkey." Wow.
