Stealing this useful facebook meme for this blog! Roderick Scott was part of a Neighborhood Watch. This incident happened in New York State in a small town called, Greece. Shot a kid out of self defense after catching him doing criminal acts. There is no Stand Your Ground law in New York either and he was found not guilty anyway.
Where is the outrage in this? Do you see the white community being angry… starting riots and protesting justice for Christopher? I’m willing to bet the blacks will hail Roderick a hero for this too.
These things happen all the time.
Read the full story, here.
This case very similar to the Martin/Zimmerman story but slightly different.
I don’t hate Roderick for what he did, though. What he did was very heroic too, and I applaud anybody who defend their own lives from dangerous people no matter the age.
