Yep, in Wojo's twisted mind, George Zimmerman is a racist just because he shot a black man while Trayvon was not racist because it is okay for black people to assault "Creepy crackers"!!!
Now was Trayvon in the habit of arming himself and stalking white people who were walking home from convenience stores?

Anyone who thinks stalking an innocent person is not provoking an incident needs his head examined. BTW, there is no independent evidence supporting the theory that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman.

Oh, since when is it that a police officer can follow a suspect yet a neighborhood watch captain can not? I have watch store detective following shoplifting suspects. They are not police officers. Is that stalking?
Zimmerman is a coward in my opinion and should be put away for at least manslaughter.

It is unfortunate that the kid Trayvon did not have a knockout punch.

It could have been only two hits.

Trayvon hitting the coward Zimmerman and Zimmerman hitting the floor.

Two Hits.

Is Wiki lying about George being a not only being a member or, but also the coordinator of, his neighborhood watch group! And several of his neighbors have testified he was. Are they liars?!?
From Wiki: George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old multi-racial Hispanic American, was the neighborhood watch coordinator for the gated community ....
Little Wojo is going to piss on your shoe! Oh, he weighs 13 pounds and turned two years old last week. I call him a half Chihuahua, half Gringo mix. An Hispanic friend of mine gets a kick of out of me for telling him that.
<quoted text>
Well then Wojo, find a more authoritative source that contradicts that and POST IT! Until then, shut the f-up!!!
I don't see where you Wiki article states that Zimmerman's watch group was registered with the police or that Zimmerman was officially a member of any recognized watch group. I cannot prove what does not exist. There is no evidence that Zimmerman was a member of a recognized watch group.

It is YOU who have played the race card. Zimmerman is a LIBERAL and he voted for OBAMA and he was set up only because he is WHITE but when they found out he was Hispanic your side claimed he was a WHITE-Hispanic.
Zimmerman had no idea what color Trayvon was when he first called the non-911 line to report a suspicious person. Yet that did not stop Eric Holder for opening a HATE CRIME investigation on him.
Tell us, how many black people have been investigated for HATE CRIMES?
Trayvon's girl friend said that Trayvon had PROFILED Zimmerman as a "creepy cracker" and if anyone committed a hate crime it was when Trayvon assaulted a person just because he was a "creepy cracker"!!!
But under Rev. Wright's twisted religion, it is okay for blacks to do that because their g-g-great grandparents were enslaved by Black-Africans who sold them to the evil white people.
Do you know that slavery was legal in Saudi Arabia until 1960 (not 1860 but 1960) but it is still practiced there today.
And it is the Arab-Muslims in Northern Sudan who have been enslaving Black-Christians but that does not seem to bother you just like the Shitcago PD who had waterboarded BLACK men into giving false confessions and using those false confessions to convict them and put them on DEATH ROW or LIFE W/O PAROLE!!!.
This post is too asinine and ludicrous for a response.

It helps when one knows the difference between simply following someone and stalking someone. There's no stalking here.

Easy, Martin has injuries to his hands ONLY whereas Z has NO injuries to his hands but DOES have injuries to his nose and back of his head. Z's jacket was also wet with grass clippings and I suppose that means to you that Trayvon was ON THE BOTTOM!?!
So Z could have thrown the first punch and didn't land solidly.

Z was a big man with a gun in his hand. Otherwise he's a paranoid little wimp. Kinda like a lot of birthers.

At 4:05 pm ET the prosecutor said that Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch coordinator!!!! Is that good enough for you? After all the prosecutor's word good enough for you?!?
I don't see where he said the watch group was registered or were recognized as such by the police. So the "Captain" and "coordinator" coordinated the activities of his own self in his play cop world.

Well, Zimmerman wasn't attempting to move around undetected, was he? I don't think a stalker is going to stop and call the Police to tell them what he is doing, do you? Stalking usually involves more than just one incident also.

Sorry Tootzie, Bob Dole was never a Conservative. As far as CEOs are concerned, that are like athletes and their services go to the highest bidder! Do you get upset with how much athletes make?
And you are clueless about pharmaceuticals and I don't have the time to school a Libtard on the subject.
I suppose you want the same health care they have in Cuba which Jacqueau thinks is the best in the world. If you can pay, you can get a good deal. But it you are a Cuban peon, they will give you an aspirin to treat your cancer!!!

American Samoa Minimum Wage Freeze Approved By Congress 07/19/12

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa — Congress passed a bill this week to freeze American Samoa's minimum wage, responding to employer concerns and a government financial report that suggest automatic increases were harming the U.S. territory's economy.

American Samoa's minimum pay was set to increase by 50 cents in September, but that now stands to be delayed until 2015.

Minimum wage in American Samoa varies from $4.18 to $5.59 per hour, depending on the industry. The lowest wage is for garment workers and the highest is for those in the shipping industry. Tuna canneries make up the largest private employer, where the rate is $4.76.

The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007 provided for annual 50-cents per hour increases until the rate matched the rest of the U.S., where the minimum pay is $7.25 per hour.

Increases for 2010 and 2011 were previously delayed by another federal law. The last increase went into effect in 2009, the day after a tsunami killed 34 people in the territory and the same day a tuna cannery shut down.

The issue of pay has been the focus of an ongoing debate in the territory where a communal land system allows many people to live rent-free with their families. A majority of American Samoa land is communally owned by families. But everyday household items need to be shipped to the island, making them much more expensive than in most parts of the U.S.

A report last year by the U.S. Government Accountability Office said employment in American Samoa has declined because of the minimum wage increases that began in 2007. The 142-page report said the decrease in employment was a result of losing a tuna cannery in American Samoa. Employers blamed the minimum wage increase for layoffs, work hour reductions and hiring freezes.

America Samoa's nonvoting delegate in the U.S. House of Representatives, Eni H. Faleomavaega, said the Senate bill was overwhelmingly approved Tuesday, 378-11.

While he supported it, "I take no happiness in the successful passage of this bill because I still stand for fair wages for American Samoa's workers," he said. "So between now and 2015, it will be up to the American Samoa government and our corporate partners, including StarKist and Tri-Marine, to find new ways of succeeding without further compromising the wages of our fish cleaners because I cannot promise that I will support any more delays after this."

More than one incident? Not if you're a hunter. I was using the plain and ordinary meaning. Trayvon had no idea he was being targeted; Z stalked and killed his prey.
