"All the books written about the creation of economic policy within his administration make clear the president and his aides didn't know it was so bad, didn't understand the depth of the crisis, didn't have a sense of how long it would last. They didn't have their mind on what the American people had their mind on."
I've heard that. Didn't Biden us the word "miscalculated" around the time of Cash for Clunkers?

"The constitutional law professor from the University of Chicago didn't notice the centerpiece of his agenda was not constitutional? How did that happen?"

In 50 years, the Hispanics you're trying to rile up against Blacks will turn on you all because they will be the majority! There will be a President Gonzales and the national language will be Spanish and the national dish will be rice and beans! lol.

This case illustrates how a lie can cause someone to lose his life, when the police are not told the truth, in this case by a Latino. And the police in turn, kill an unarmed person based on that lie.

It's the fault of the police officer(s) for not having constraint over themselves, which is already taught to them in the academy. Just because someone says someone has a gun doesn't make it their fault when/if police shoot that suspect for "reaching at their waistband" for no reason when confronted by the police.

That also brings into question whether the police officer is even telling the truth! Logically, WHY would ANYone reach for their waistband when the police tell them to "freeze" or "stop," yet that suspect has no weapon(s) on them to reach for to begin with?

I know damn well the first place my hands are going are UP in the air if/when I hear police screaming to stop or "freeze, police!" because I know they most likely have their gun(s) drawn on me already (imagining myself being the suspect or criminal in this case)!

Was the cop lying because the guy DID NOT, in fact, reach for his waistband yet the cop negligently shot the suspect (itchy trigger finger)?

Too bad cameras weren't there to catch it. That's why police officers need cameras on them all the time to keep an eye on them and make sure they do their job correctly. Then they truly would show much more constraint, knowing this video footage can be brought against them in a court of law and they'll easily lose the case with their word alone meaning nothing, because VIDEO doesn't lie!

All the Latino guy can be charged with is: disclosing false information (lying) to the 911 operator. That's it! If that's even a crime where he lives, I don't know.

You make some good points, as the DA declined to pursue the involuntary manslaughter charge against the liar.

The liar is an illegal alien that was previously deported, so he will be deported again and probably be back in the USA lickety split due to lax border controls.

And we know the cop may not be entirely truthful, considering they did what amounts to a driveby on the young man.

its because the guy is the offspring of a white man... same thing would happen happen with black activist if he were the offspring of a WM/BW... its cuz those groups are inherently racist, and the mothers are seen as race traitors... if the dad were latino and the mom was white, their reaction would be totally different
Most hispanic and black women that marry white men normally marry racist white men weird right?

I live in TX and the kids with hispanic dad's always identify as hispanic while the ones with white dad's don't they are also very racist towards non-whites.

It figures La Raza would not want to step into this firestorm of controversy. It is of no benefit to them to side with Zimmerman since it does nothing to push their agenda for amnesty for illegals.

Hispanic European-descended Latinas, of which there are tens of millions, who Marry USA Anglos might be unknowingly marrying one of the 33% USA Anglos who are part black or the other percent who are mixed with Indians. LOL!

he is labeled as white in all of his records and he always identified as white untill he killed Trayvon.

Why? Maybe he wanted to water down the racial profiling he obviously did towards Trayvvon.

Also La Raza the biggest Hispanic organization doesnt recognize George as "Hispanic" and is siding with Trayvons defence team
