My Trayvon Cartoon

I hate drawing cartoons about crime, and I didn’t really want to get involved in the arguments about the shooting of Trayvon Martin, so I just drew a sad, wordless image. It is interesting how the hoodie, Arizona Iced Tea and Skittles have become so well known that no explanation is necessary.

The grander message I see in all of this is that guys who should never have guns, should never get guns; regrettably, I don’t hear many of the talking heads on TV coming to that conclusion.  See more Trayvon Shooting cartoons here.

Simple, quiet beauty. How fitting. RIP Trayvon, it wasn't your hoodie or anything. It was bad gun laws.

Soooo… even if its true, and Trayvon *was* on top of George Zimmerman, beating him, and it was George that was yelling (not Trayvon), you blame gun laws? Rather then, you know, Trayvon beating George Zimmerman?
