If you wamt to claim Zimmerman was in the right because he was in some sot of security position, then he needs to be identified in order to separate him from a stalking stranger.
Quit being such a GD idiot.
I want to have all kids thrown out of school for drugs in hoodies with the "I was thrown out of school for drugs "Or if they were "thrown out of school for stealing" pasted on their backs. You know.... in order to separate them from the kids that weren't thrown out of school. Seems fair.

Good news for America

President Obama will spend part of Monday paying tribute to one of his Republican predecessors.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama welcome ex-president George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush to a White House ceremony to recognize the Points of Light volunteer program.

"Points of Light — the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service — mobilizes millions of people to take action that is changing the world and recognizes individuals who are making a difference through service and volunteerism," the White House schedule says.

The first President Bush established the program in 1989.

While honoring Bush, President Obama plans to announce the creation of a federal task force "to identify additional ways that the public and private sectors can partner together to support national service as a strategy for tackling national priorities."

Monday's ceremony at the White House includes recipients of the 5,000th Daily Point of Light Award: Floyd Hammer and Kathy Hamilton, a retired couple of farm owners from Union, Iowa, whose non-profit organization delivers free meals to children suffering from hunger in more than 15 countries, including the USA.

The Obamas will have lunch with the Bushes and members of their family.

Bush's visit comes two weeks after Obama met with former president George W. Bush during a trip to Africa.

Martin attacked a stalker. He was being followed.
As ar as Martin knew, by a potential attacker.
When asked by Martin, all the dumbf*ck Zimmerman had to do was say "Neighborhood Watch".
If Martin's plan was to attack Zimmerman, why bother asking why he was following him.
You people are dumber than sh*t.
If Trayvon Martin had not been paranoid, starting a fight, drawn first blood, had been friendly or neighborly, had gone home, we wouldn't be having this conversation and Travon would be alive

Trayvon was not justified in his response of force, the evidence and jury says so...

You and racists like you refuse to see truth.

Homer, why would this president concentrate on a state and local case in Florida to pump up a racially charged and anti-gun control agenda and not say a word about the number of gang deaths in Chicago?
Some of you may not know this, but there have been more deaths in gang-related violence in Chicago than fatalities in Afghanistan.
Why, oh why, you might ask, does this president and Eric Holder spend so much time focusing on this one case in Florida and not even mention all the deaths in Chicago in their home state?

Possibly You are making it political?

President Obama :

“The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America,” Obama said.“I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher.

But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken.”

Spin it however you want Batty, your a cold, heartless, dishonest woman--if indeed you're not just another Waxturd/Fenny sock.
Spin it you
The police surveillance video shown on ABC showed a fairly slender George Zimmerman the night of the attack.

Zimmerman is reportedly 5'8" and weighed 170 pounds on the night of the attack.

The police estimated Trayvon at 6'0" and 160 pounds when they wrote the police report the night he was shot. This was probably a conservative estimate as his family has reported his height at 6'2".

Realtime never said that the flake known as George Zimmerman was racist___what I said was that he a needy, paranoid, drug addled, unpredictable, job hopping fool who had to hang around with much older people because no one his own age could understand or relate to him. Well, Mrs Bartolan could relate to him LOL, twenty plus visits in six months and the NW lady, a plump Hispanic gal who was clearly smitten with Georgie and wanted to recruit him for Citizens on Patrol. Too bad she didn't run his background to learn that he wasn't qualified for that volunteer position.

His Vietnam vet pal and his realtor wannabe politician wife are hard right teabaggers, strange that you continue to push George as a (D).

First of all, you don't "attack" anyone unless you are committing a crime - it's called assault, moron.

Secondly, it doesn't matter if he was "Neighborhood Watch" or not.

You are a complete moron.

Kruidbos, who testified in a pretrial hearing in the Zimmerman case in June, said that he had reason to believe that additional information found in Trayvon Martin's cell phone had not been turned over to the defense.

Kruidbos said more than 2,000 photos from the phone were not shown to defense attorneys, including pictures of underage naked girls, images showing piles of jewelry on Martin's bed and photos of Martin blowing smoke.

Other items taken from Martin's phone included text-message discussions of drugs and pictures of a gun and marijuana plants.

Of course, these selfish, ignorant, greedy and racist bass turds can't read anyways so all of this is completely lost on them.

Sanford, Florida, police chief Bill Lee was fired during the trial for not arresting Zimmerman.
Now that Zimmerman was deemed not guilty after the state attorney withheld evidence from the grand jury and the judge completely disregarded the Constitution, will Bill Lee get his job back? Will the mayor be fired? Will the state attorney go to prison?
America's Southern Left Coast will only move toward justice if pushed hard by outside forces. Don't count on Eric Racist Holder and the Magic Negro top pursue justice. They are busy right now trashing the U.S. Constitution.

Search for Black male suspects in deadly Family Dollar robbery

TAMPA - One of two males wanted in connection to the shooting death of a Tampa Family Dollar store manager Sunday morning is no longer deemed a suspect after speaking with detectives.

According to Tampa Police Det. Chuck Massucci, a male in a hat and wearing white headphones in a surveillance picture released earlier Sunday has been cleared "at this time" after coming forward and giving a statement.

He is now considered a witness and will not be identified.

And then Eric Holder trots out in front of a camera and says he and the Justice Department are still considering pursuing criminal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin.

Really? This is the job of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice of the United States of America?

And not pursue charges against the Black Panthers for obstructing a voting site?

If you don't think Eric Holder and Barack Obama aren't of the same mind and on the exact same page, you cra-cra.

This administration thrives on racial tension and derisiveness. It keeps our minds off Eric Holder's and Barack Obama's failures to uphold the law and the Constitution of the United States.

You're being played like an old crusty fiddle.

The Points of Light Story

1987: Community advocates found New York Cares.
1989: President George H. W. Bush’s inaugural address invokes the vision of a "thousand points of light," and invites the nation to take action through service to their fellow citizens.
1990: President Bush establishes the Daily Point of Light Award for individuals making a difference. During his administration, President Bush formally recognizes more than 1,000 volunteers as "points of light." He advocates that "points of light" demonstrate how "a neighbor can help a neighbor." The award is now administered by Points of Light.
1990: In response to President Bush’s call to action, Points of Light Foundation is created as an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization to encourage and empower the spirit of service. The new nonprofit extends President Bush's vision, understanding that "what government alone can do is limited, but the potential of the American people knows no limits."

In case any hadn't heard of it Wayyyyyyy PRIOR to today.

(and much More like the AMERICA, SOME of us recall).
