FBI report: No evidence George Zimmerman is racist
Federal civil-rights investigators interviewed dozens of George Zimmerman's friends, neighbors and co-workers, and no one said he was a racist, records released Thursday show.
FBI agents spread out across the state, talking to three dozen people, including gun-shop employees, Zimmerman's ex-fiancée and the Sanford police detective who led the investigation into the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old.

It's the culture..
just bbecasue people say Zimmerman isn't a racists, doesn't mean he isn't prejudice.

My guess is that Trayvon's race had little to do with Zimmerman's actions. Rather it was Trayvon's age and appearance that led to the confrontation. The hoodie and hip-hop style clothing.

Fact is Martin was not engaged in any illegal activity. Zimmerman even made a remark about punks getting away with things. Martin got killed not for engaging in any illegal activity but for looking suspicious.

From Martin's point of view, this overweight man is following him in a car, then he gets out of the car and starts following him on foot. We don't know what transpired, we do know Zimmerman's state of mind though as witnessed in the 911 call.
Zimmerman took the law into his own hands.
At the time of the shooting, could immerman have been fearful of his life? Yes.
But who initiated the attack? We don't know
Was Trayvon engaged in any illegal activity? No
We do know that if Zimmerman had not gone all vigilantee, Trayvon would still be alive.

Florida State attorney's office employee has been fired after testifying about concerns that prosecutors didn't turn over photos and text messages from Trayvon Martin's cellphone to the defense in George Zimmerman's murder case.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

That's exactly what this means.

Armed cowards can start a fist fight then shoot you and claim self defense.

He stalked the kid. Was armed. Killed the kid.

Why didn't Z just yell to T: I am neighborhood watch. I am armed with a gun! Police are on the way.

T would have said: I live here.

No fight, no death.

It looks like entrapment by Z. By design. He wanted blood for all those that got away with it? But T was just a kid that lived there!

Horrible precedent.

It is leading to a society where no one will ever speak to anyone. If someone honks at me. I don't even look at them anymore. They are all armed!

So you, in all your foolishness are making assumptions even though you are not one of the jurors.

You live in Lala Land, idiot.

Martin would be alive if he didn't initiate the violence. That is what the jury found, you moron.

we must have saw different videos. In the one I saw, the man arrested was simply asking why in a predominately black neighbor hood, there were no black officers present. He was video taping the event, which BTW is completely legal. I don't know what the police said to him, but he put his dog in the car, then put his hands behind his head and turned around.
What did he do to warrent an arrest? I didn't see any action that looked illegal. The police are servants of the public, the man arrested is part of the public. Techically speaking, the police work for him. If he had a question, they should answer it. However, all too often, the police seem to forget who they work for.
He'd had a history of arrests for interfering with police officers, had filed civil suits against them in the past, as well as a long history of personal arrests. He stopped to start trouble with his dog, and that's what got the poor pup killed. Like I said the cop was a pssyfckphag, but the negro should be horsewhipped for acting the fool and getting his dog killed....

one mo thing, just so I understand you correctly
All drunk drivers be beaten down repeatively by upwards to 20 police officers?
Does that include female drunk drivers?
Teenage kids?
Rodney King led the policeman that beat him on a high-speed chase, endangering many innocent people. He didnt just pull over and get clubbed. He had a beating coming, and so does anyone else that doesnt obey police orders and endangers other people....

If he had used his voice instead of his fists to express frustration after confronting the person who - wrongly or rightly - believed he looked suspicious, it could have ended much differently.
When one is wrongly misjudged, violence is never the first reaction to resolve it.
Surely, you agree.
Of course! So, it tool Trayvon Martin dying of a gunshot to convince you of the need for gun control . You're making sense now.

I have to admit this whole civil rights violation talk is nonsense. It's not like the Rodney King incident where there was an abuse of power "under the color of authority". It's ridiculous. The trial is over. It should end there.
The lifestyle of crooks and the infamous is what leads to these episodes in the first place. King, Martin and countless others choose the road to destruction. They habitually destroy other people's lives on the way to destroying their own.
In America, one is born with civil rights, but when you seize the rights of others, you inevitably pay the boatman.

Would it be wrong of me, to say it's wrong of you to, invoke commonsense into a situation full of nonsense? The problem the right has with everyone else is, rationalization! They speak from the letter of the law, only when it benefits their arguments. Not that they actually believe Trayvon was in the last bit wrong or, that Zimmerman was in the least bit right. It just
serves as fuel for debate.Not even worth speaking from the heart, to someone talking out their ass!

The NAACP, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and other civil rights activists are calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to press federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. http://yhoo.it/13IJIkr

Do you think there are grounds for a civil rights case? A Wrongful death lawsuit against George Zimmerman would bankrupt him , enrage his big moneyed right wing gun lobby supporters, and keep political pressure on the Florida state legislature to overturn the horrible shoot first laws of this state.
