Not at all, I said both were tragedies. I do think one is always going to happen to some extent in our society when we have desperate sick assholes that are on drugs, etc. I think the other was completely avoidable simply because the facts are bearing it out.
But couldn't it also be said that so long as youths wearing hooded sweatshirts are perceived in the fashion they are, that this tragedy could always happen in society as well? I don't think it's necessarily limited to one neighborhood watch vigilante. Both crimes are results of two very much broader problems in society.
