An attempt at Trayvonization?

The New York Times profiles and tries to humanize the 14-year-shot and killed by a police officer earlier this month.

Does it matter Shaaliver Douse talked of wanting to turn his life around and eventually go to college? Or that he liked his pancakes and waffles with syrup?

There's no need to Trayvonize this teen. He was a repeat firearms offender who was shooting at someone, and reportedly turned his gun on a cop before the cop shot him.

At least the Times didn't try to sucker us with a bunch of baby pictures.
