West Changes His Tune

“I believe it comes back to being a respectful young man and maybe that’s something that was missing out of President Obama and Trayvon Martin’s life,” former congressman Allen West said of the president's recent speech about the teen and race. “But to try to play this and try to make it a personal experience, this was just absolutely horrific.” At the time of the shooting, West said, "It seems … there was no probable cause to engage him, certainly not pursue and shoot him."
