Question: PICK ONE

Here’s my newest cartoon on the police shootings protests. Just pick one, from 1 to 4, then turn your computer over to read the answers. I don’t think that will work if you’re looking at this on your cell phone or tablet, because the screen will pop to right side up if you turn your computer over. I’m an old, desktop computer guy so it works for me. Heavy, though.

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.

Trayvon Martin Cartoons

Outrage over the Trayvon Martin shooting is spreading as marchers took to the streets in New York City and Miami demanding the arrest of the shooter, neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. Three weeks ago, the unarmed Martin was shot in a gated subdivision outside of Orlando by Zimmerman, who claimed self-defense under the “Stand Your Ground” law, which expands the right to claim self-defense beyond the home in Florida…

Our own Jeff Parker, the staff cartoonist for Florida Today, drew the cartoon above about the shooting and wrote on his blog:

“Armed with Florida’s flawed “stand your ground” laws, Zimmerman remains free as police, and now the feds, sift the facts concerning the killing of a “suspicious” teen armed only with iced tea and Skittles.”

Here are some of the cartoons that have come in about this tragic event…
