I read they can't identify them because they are all 3 under 18. So maybe it's a legal thing not what's being suggested.

They've already been identified, and photos have been posted to news sites.

The public reaction to George Zimmerman had much to do with the question of his credibility.

 

These three have no credibility issues, because they have already admitted to murdering someone due to boredom.

 

Their racial motivations may be an additional issue worth consider in sentencing, but there is little doubt these three will be spending decades behind bars.

Almost as bad as "white hispanic" while doctoring 911 tapes and pixelating police camera videos.

 

By the way...the two issues have nothing to do with one another, but bias through omission is still bias. 

 

 

in this case whiteness is social and cultural, not racial; it ties into notions of white privilege and why zimmerman was allowed to leave the scene of the crime that night. also power structures and historical context are why a white authority figure murdering a black kid make bigger news. the lives lost are worth the same, but the added social evil of prejudice is what puts cases like Z vs. T over the top in news and media.

Did Fox News doctor the police reports that said white male?

The point of my post has nothing to do with racism. There is nothing to suggest that the black kids were acting out of bigotry. Maybe they were who knows. Seem like typical gun toting rednecks to me.

 

My point is there is some impetus for media sites to treat this case differently because black kids are the shooters. Similarly if a 12 year old pretty blonde goes missing from an upper class neighborhood it is national news while if Shanice goes missing from East LA we don't hear about it. I t goes both ways.

 

So what is the impetus for MSNBC to hide the picture of the accused in this case?

 

1) Simple liability issues as someone else stated. Can't release names?

2) Liberal media agenda.

3) A bigger political machine 

 

What do you think?

 

FYI 2 of the kids (15,16) are charged as adults and a third (17) is charged as a child.

 

Still no picture or mention of race
