  1. Nailed it.

  2. The right wing blogosphere/Twitter, including The Daily Caller, Michelle Malkin and George Zimmerman’s brother, have been throwing out the supposed names of the two suspects.

    The name they’ve “identified” as that of the “white hat” suspect is Hindu, and belongs to an Indian-American college student who went missing recently. He bears a very slight resemblance to the “white hat” suspect, but you couldn’t honestly say they’re the same person. The name they’ve attached to the suspect who was killed is- get this- Ethiopian. Someone even linked to a Twitter page belonging to someone with that name, and needless to say, he looks absolutely nothing like the “black hat” suspect.
