What If the Races Were Reversed?

They were, here locally, when "Roderick Scott, a black man, shot and killed an unarmed white teen, Christopher Cervini, whom he believed was burglarizing a neighbor's car, with a licensed .40 cal. handgun" — What if Trayvon Had Been White, and the Shooter Black?

"Despite the fact that he left his own property, confronted, and shot dead an unarmed white person thought to be committing a petty property crime, Scott was acquitted by a majority-white jury after claiming that the Cervini charged at him, putting him in imminent fear of his life."

A just verdict, with no histrionics, no riots, and no presidential posturing.
