Zimmerman’s Attorney Releases Bloody Photo, Further Dispelling the Trayvon Victim Myth

Added thoughts:
Just in case people think that there aren't many individuals, including the family, trying to make a tidy monetary/political profit off of Trayvon's death and the myth surrounding his alleged "hunting down" by Zimmerman, consider the following. There is a photography "business" in Florida, now taking (futile) legal action against any and all websites displaying one of Trayvon's school pictures, a picture they only copyrighted a month or two after his death, despite it having been taken in 2008, in order to capitalize on its usage. Even more interesting is that the news media outlets using this picture got it from the family handout for usage with their stories. And who helped this unscrupulous business copyright the photo? Why, a black Floridian lawyer with a reputation for sniping. And to think that blacks so often blame whites for exploitation, when they seem so incredibly skilled at doing it to one another even without our help. If and when necessary, the CC will release all the details pertaining to these suits. A sad day it is.

Egypt: Clashes Outside Presidential Palace

The number of terrorist attacks each year has more than quadrupled in the decade since 9/11, according to a study launched today.

Europe's banking union ambitions under strain

Divisions over how European bank oversight will work threaten to undermine one of Europe's boldest reforms as finance ministers finalize plans to put the European Central Bank in charge of supervising all euro zone banks on Tuesday.

While ministers agree that creating a banking union is a sound idea, they cannot agree how best to structure it, how far to go in unifying banking systems to share risk and how to prevent discrimination between euro and non-euro countries.
