Cops, Beatings and Cell Phone Videos

It looks like cell phone videos of bad cops is making police all over America shy away from their jobs enough to make the crime rate soar. I’ve had this cartoon in mind for a long time, but for some reason I wasn’t happy with the layout and it took me a long time to draw – too long. I’m still not quite sure about the colors of the thought balloons. Oh well, time to move on, for me and for the police.

Dangerous Hoodies

The Trayvon Martin case continues to be tried on cable television instead of in a courtroom. In one of the most outlandish comments involved with this whole tradegy, Fox News host Geraldo Rivera said he thought the hoodie Trayvon wore the night he was shot was as much responsible for his death as the shooter, George Zimmerman.

Rivera has since backed away and apologized for his comments, but cartoonists have already latched onto the visual imagery of the hoodie (including me). Here are some cartoons about this suddenly dangerous piece of attire:

Five Powerful Trayvon Martin Cartoons

As the Trayvon Martin case continues to unfold, a lot of unanswered questions remain about the tragic death of the Florida teenager. As a result, cartoonists have been fine-tuning their thoughts about the shooting. Everything from hoodies to skittles have entered the fray, as well as President Obama’s comment that if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon (which our conservative cartoonist Gary McCoy mocked as politicizing the event).

I’ve shared my own cartoon and thoughts about the shooting, so I thought I’d post five powerful cartoons about Trayvon, drawn by the nation’s top cartoonists…

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.
