Pathetic, instead of standing on the law, they are asking to be told what to do...Just pathetic.
That is horrendous. What happened to the law and due process and all that stuff? Since when does an angry mob get to decide what happens?

"People can e-mail Sanford.Florida@usdoj.gov if they have thoughts on how the department should proceed."

Um, no. I do not want public opinion weighing in on matters of law.

That jury screwed up. Now it's okay to pick a fight with someone, then when they get the upper hand, shoot them and cry self defense.

The Justice Department is the same team that sent a group to Florida to drum up support for Travon, thereby nationalizing this issue.

But I actually love to see Liberals pzzing all over themselves and looking like idiots. As usual. That's why liberalism is dying -(whatever happened to those 99%ers anyway?)

The problem was, Zimmerman just wasn't white enough. Maybe the guvment will have better luck with the next white guy who shoots a black guy in self defense.

Meanwhile, black on black crime in Chicago is on the rise...

Is this a "public opinion" or were you in the courtroom?

He may be from NYC, but he is based in chitown now with his shakdown buddy Jesse.

My only point was, why should someone like Sharpton make a stink (isn't he based in NYC?) when the locals aren't even bothering?
I just googled Sharpton to verify that he's from NYC (he is)-- have you seen him lately? He's lost a lot of weight and got a younger girlfriend.

Like that angry mob of white, Christian, Republican men who try to tell a woman what she can and can't do with her own body!?

Or that mob of gay protesters?

Or all those hippies trying to ban oil?

Smoking bans, gun bans, school lunch bans??

America has let an "angry mob" make its decisions for so long now, it may be hard to go back.

What does the local media attention have to do with that pig sharfpton and his rabid tirades? Why is he not lamenting those people who died? Oh, right, no controversy, so no money.
<quoted text>
Oh, please -- Sharpton will run his mouth and have a tirade about anything including kids getting shot.

He'll do anything for publicity. He's probably too busy getting more publicity elsewhere.

Because when I'm stalking someone with the evil intent on causing him/her harm, I always make sure I'm on the phone with 911 first...

It's also been documented that at least three other times, Zimmerman followed black people walking through that neighborhood and called 911. The dude's a racial profiler.

Remember when this first happened, his dad tried to claim that his son was a non native English speaker, Hispanic, a minority just like Trayvon.

And Great Britain and Wales have legalized gay marriage today! Takes effect about a year from now. Scotland and Northern Ireland are expected to follow suit.

I agree. Due process is one of the best things about our country. I didn't like the recall effort in Wisconsin. I figured, don't like the guy in office? YOu have a chance to vote him out down the road.

So what? It is not against the law to follow someone! Its not against the law to call the cops when you see people who do not fit the character of your neighborhood. If fact, at the neighborhood meeting I have attended, the police encourage residents to do that.

His neighborhood had experienced a jump in crimes, well that spike did not happen because the crooks were not in the neighborhood. If you see something odd or out of place, you call the cops, that is the mantra used to prevent terrorism and to prevent crime.

You are beyond ignorant. martin did not live there, it is perfectly reasonable for a neighborhood watch person to suspect he may be up to no good. But you are saying that because he was black that martin should have turned a blind eye because to do otherwise makes him a racist profiler.

Grow a brain will you!

Okay -- I'm the one that doesn't have a brain yet you are the one that has to use insults to "speak". Hmmm....

Mine works fine and I really dn't care whether you agree. The cops told Martin NOT TO FOLLOW, but he followed Trayvon. They told Martin to stay in his car -- he did not.

If someone was following me and I was a guy, I would go up to the guy following me and ask him WTF is he following me for. I would perceive HIM to be a threat/criminal.

I do believe that Zimmerman should have been found not guilty but only b/c of the poor execution of the prosecution. The prosecution sucked.

By the way, when you treat people like aholes it defines you not them.

And yes, I realize I kept getting Zimmerman's first name wrong. It's George not Martin. I was trying to do things at work as well and I guess I lost track of the names. Ha!

Where's the CHICAGO (local) media attention? I don't see any of this on the front page of the Chicago Tribune.
Might be some racial/political pressure....WGN had a movie, instead of the Nightly News, on at 10pm....I've hardly ever seen that....HLN, MSNBC and CNN should take some heat in their race-baiting coverage.....

Dispite you trying to paint his actons as unlawful, They weren't. Tough for you.

Your the one who seems to know more than the jury did, thank god you were not on it, you would have railroaded him into prison just because martin was black. That makes you ignorant, and it is not an insult, it is a FACT!

OH, and btw martin was a male, and he did not do as you would have done, instead he hid in the bushes and jumped zimmerman and started slamming his head into the cement. But you are saying that its justified because martin was black.

maybe martin should have confronted zimmerman instead of attacking him, but he didn't, he wanted to beat up a cracker, and thats what he did, and of course thats ok buy you because martin was black.
