Ah the progressive response. I didn't think you had finished with Bush did it. Obama jumped right in and declared Martin the innocent little boy just going to the store for candy. He didn't mention Martin was a dope smoker, street drug lean user, which is why he needed the skittles. Nor did he mention his wannabe 'gansta' status, nor his racist hate for krackers. Other than that, maybe Bush did do it.

This Lawrence Wolf on his inside knowledge of the Zimmerman case.
Lawrence Wolf wrote:
Anyone who claims to know what truly happened in the Zimmerman/Martin case is full of shit.
What we do know is that Zimmerman stalked Martin, that he had a gun while Martin was armed with Skittles, that Zimmerman shot Martin and killed him. The rest is hearsay, partisan bullshit, and malice.

Easy on old Larry, he's an Obot, he's had way too much Kool-Aid and can't resist. He's basically harmless and he does do a great job representing progressive thinking.

That burglarizing druggie got his justice at the hands of a true American hero George Zimmerman.

There is no reason to answer the question. Martin had a right to be on the property and Zimmerman was not a licensed security officer or a police officer and Zimmerman was a tenant so Zimmerman had no legal authority to pursue Martin nor to question Martin nor to attempt to detain Martin.
Zimmerman was out of line.
sooooo... punt?

I see. George made him come out of hiding, right?

or, what????

Powell is crazy! The Zimmerman verdict is as good as any an all white jury has delivered for a white man against a black man in this county over the past 300 years. The verdict represents the hearts and minds of the majority of this nation. How can it be "questionable"?
That must have taken a lot of balls for an Uncle Tom like Powell to question an all-white jury's verdict. Sounds like he might be getting a bit uppity.

I remember watching it live. He stood up there and made a fool out of himself like a sucka that just fell off the turnip truck. During the slide show he didn't even know what the hell he was pointing at. He got clowned, BAD.

People who are questioning this verdict are doing one of two things, they are ignoring the fact that Trayvon Martin assaulted Zimmerman or more likely are accepting it as ok because it is punishment for Zimmerman profiling him as a criminal.

Powell did nothing exemplary in Vietnam. Nothing more than tens of thousands of other soldiers did on a daily basis. Let's be honest here, the Bush Administration wanted a respectable negro to be in a highly visible position such a Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State. So Powell, like Obama in college, was given preference on the basis of the color of his skin - everything that Marin Luther King preached against.
Powell votes for Obama and Powell supports Democrat positions. He has almost nothing in common with the rank and file Republicans. So why the charade Powell? Be honest and call a spade a spade. You are a Democrat every bit as much as Bloomberg is. Just be honest about it. And I am not a Republican.

You probably believe his claim that he got out of the car to get the street name even though he pursued Martin between the buildings
where they were away from the street and in the back of the buildings where no address information was posted.
