Why would SNL Do a Trayvon Martin Skit?

Last night NBC Saturday Night Live did a Trayvon Martin skit. The goal was to show how the media has handled the case, but what it did was to show us how SNL mishandled this tragic story. There is nothing funny about this story. There are some things that are simply not for comedic fodder, and the death or the media associated with a murdered 17 year old would qualify as off limits. Watch the clip and tell me what you think.
