From the moment a video surfaced of black teenager Trayvon Martin being beaten so badly, the narrative has been that he acted defensively. Martin was, after all, a young, black person, and a potential threat to the neighborhood in which he lived. The question, of course, becomes, why, if he was so much like the unarmed, unarmed, dead person the police shot, was the police not more vigilant, and more aggressive, during the incident?

And it was obvious that the police were in a bind, because while Martin wasn’t a murderer, he was, in the eyes of the police and authorities, clearly dangerous. The police, at first, were in a no-win situation. The police had to decide what to do and could either let Martin walk
