The curious case of Chavis Carter has been on our radar for a while now.

As we've been sharing with you the ins and outs of the case, you have been sending some really insightful and probing questions. Your skepticism has been made clear in your comments, both here, on Facebook and your many tweets on this topic. So when the autopsy results were announced on Monday, we were surprised by how quiet the reaction has been. So we decided to ask:

What do you think? Are we tired? Has all the marching from the Trayvon case left us jaded? Do we just not expect much from our justice system anymore? Is the nature of Chavis' case that makes many of you less empathetic?

Tell us in the comments what you think. Where is the outrage about Chavis? Does this case warrant it?
