Interesting picture of Trayvon Martin the nite of the Martin/Zimmerman deal. It looks mothering light the picture we've seen. The picture that has been put out looks like a much younger innicent kid with a hooded sweat shirt than what comes up on this web www.ijreview.com . I always wonder why parents let a kid as young as Trayvon Martin looks in the picture that is shown all over the media.

Yes, I agree but... the bigger they are, the harder they fall, lol.

George Zimmerman will get back the pistol that killed Trayvon Martin...
Attorney says he'll need it "more than ever"
The pistol that killed Trayvon Martin was a Kel Tec 9 and it will be returned to George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara says his client plans to arm himself again and he understands why.

"There's even more reason now, isn't there” O’Mara asked.“There are a lot of people out there who really hate him, even though they shouldn't."

O’Mara told ABC news Zimmerman needs his gun "even more" than before.

On Saturday night Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in Martin’s death leaving no reason for him to not get the gun back.

O’Mara also confirmed he expects there to be several civil suits to be filed and he hinted Zimmerman may file a few himself.

The attorney said Zimmerman will need a source of income because he thinks he won’t be able to find a job anywhere in the nation.

"I don't think he can work. I don't think anyone can hire him, George is a pariah."

Baltimore police say they are investigating a witness account that a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man near Patterson Park Sunday while saying, "This is for Trayvon."

A witness posted the account on a community Facebook page, and police confirmed they are looking into whether the suspects' reaction to the verdict in the Florida trial of George Zimmerman played a part in the incident. A police report on the beating does not mention the alleged comments.

Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk, a police spokesman, declined to go into further detail.

In a post that drew nearly 50 comments on Facebook, real estate agent Christina Dudley said she was walking to her car just before 9 p.m. when she saw several young black males and two black females chasing a 37-year-old Hispanic man west on North Linwood Avenue past East Fairmont Avenue.

"One of the boys had a handgun out and it was pointed at the back of him," Dudley said in an interview.

They caught up to the man at the corner of Fairmount and N. Streeper Street, and the male with the gun beat the victim with what appeared to be his gun while others kicked and stomped him, Dudley said.

"They were just yelling and calling him names as they ran after him, but once they were hitting him and after that they started yelling, "This is for Trayvon,[expletive]," said Dudley, who heard the chant repeated multiple times.

Dudley and a woman walking her dog across the street told the group to stop and warned that they were calling 911. The group scattered before police arrived. Police have no arrests or named suspects.

Using a translator, police spoke to the victim, who knows some English, according to the police report. The victim told officers that he was standing in the intersection of Fairmont and N. Potomac Street when a group of five black males first approached him.

He described all of the males as between 16 and 18 and told police a 6-foot suspect with a black "stretchy" shirt and mohawk told him, "What's up,[expletive]." When the victim raised his phone to call 911, the suspect raised his shirt and flashed a silver handgun in his waistband.

The victim turned and ran before he was caught in the 2800 block of Fairmont and was beaten, police said. He sustained abrasions to his elbows and forearms but refused medical attention.

Then these people and in this case 'Blacks' wonder why others do not respect them. I wonder what the ones acting this way think they are going to gain by their actions.

Darky, you sure seem to get prickly when shown that black racists are the ones who caused all the trouble in this case...starting with Ashtray and his "creepy-ass cracker" remark.
Blacks are the most racist group in America.

They're at it in the streets in Okaklanf and LA right now. Watching a live feed.
They're beating each other up, attacked a Walmart, helicopter reporter said some people were just sitting on the street minding their own business and the protesters attacked them. LAPD has just given the "unlawful assembly" order. Arrests going down. And Oakland idiots are burning American flags in the streets.

Unfortunately the young black community is being lied to and are following along

An innocent man is free because the evidence proved him to be telling the truth. Six jurors agreed. You blacks are sore losers and the most pathetic thing about it is that you glorify a thug while wanting to destroy a man who did nothing wrong.
Keep posting, Darky...you just make blacks look worse with every keystroke.

If your white you are five times more likely to shoot your self, than to be shot by someone else.

If your Black your five times more likely to be shot by someone else, than shot yourself.

If you are going to insist on having firearms, at least keep them out of your mouths!

If you're black, you are likely to be shot by another black, not just someone else. This is what the black community should be upset about. This is what Sharpton and the rest of the race baiters should be concerned about and trying to help with. The 100's of black teenagers and babies killed in Chicago every year should be a huge concern, but no.

And let's be clear, not all black people are acting like the ones did last night and a lot have condemned it and realize it is not helping at all. A lot of these people are the youth, both black and white, that have been lied to and believe that what they are doing is justified and are being les by the nose by people with an agenda. Do not let Obama, Holder, Sharpton, the media, and the rest of the race baiters win people. They want us to hate each other and it is up to us not to allow that to happen.

After the verdict, the media walked up to a black man and his young son outside the courthouse to question him on his feelings. The man just sat on the ground holding his son, crying. I really felt for him because he really does feel that he and his son are 2nd class citizens bc of their skin color ad that's not what this case was about, but he felt that it was and it really hit home to him. I wish someone would have reached out to him and showed him otherwise. The ones that are just angry and looking for a reason to fight with anyone will be more difficult and then there's the ones that just hate white people and there is no talking to them.

The people that fought for Obamacare and his lined Obama's pockets are now not liking it and said it's bad for jobs. Who knew??? Oh yeah, the rest of us did.
The leaders of three major U.S. unions, including the highly influential Teamsters, have sent a scathing open letter to Democratic leaders in Congress, warning that unless changes are made, President Obama’s health care reform plan will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”
If that’s not bad enough, the Affordable Care Act, if not modified, will “destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans,” the letter says.
The full letter, below:
Dear Leader Reid and Leader Pelosi:
When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.
Like millions of other Americans, our members are front-line workers in the American economy. We have been strong supporters of the notion that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We have also been strong supporters of you. In campaign after campaign we have put boots on the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised money to secure this vision.
Now this vision has come back to haunt us.
Since the ACA was enacted, we have been bringing our deep concerns to the Administration, seeking reasonable regulatory interpretations to the statute that would help prevent the destruction of non-profit health plans. As you both know first-hand, our persuasive arguments have been disregarded and met with a stone wall by the White House and the pertinent agencies. This is especially stinging because other stakeholders have repeatedly received successful interpretations for their respective grievances. Most disconcerting of course is last week’s huge accommodation for the employer community—extending the statutorily mandated “December 31, 2013” deadline for the employer mandate and penalties.
Time is running out: Congress wrote this law; we voted for you. We have a problem; you need to fix it. The unintended consequences of the ACA are severe. Perverse incentives are already creating nightmare scenarios:
First, the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly. The impact is two-fold: fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.

Second, millions of Americans are covered by non-profit health insurance plans like the ones in which most of our members participate. These non-profit plans are governed jointly by unions and companies under the Taft-Hartley Act. Our health plans have been built over decades by working men and women. Under the ACA as interpreted by the Administration, our employees will treated differently and not be eligible for subsidies afforded other citizens. As such, many employees will be relegated to second-class status and shut out of the help the law offers to for-profit insurance plans.
