……………….Trayon Martin Legacy;
USA has once again exhibited its undercurrents of racism. Acquittal of all charges and the battle over gun reforms serves to illuminate to all the world our lopsided Judicial system.
Virtually any dark skinned person can relate to similar eerily scenarios in, various degrees, their lives that they suffered or witnessed. Racism resides within insidious forms permeating through our USA society.
Supreme Court’s decision against our voters rights, exemplifies the naïve conceptions that our justice system still harbor on racism. Court’s statement “Things Have Changed Dramatically” illuminates their naïve comprehension on the issue.
Justice Departments advancing an investigation may yet come to expose the lax laws that supports and creates such Zimmerman scenarios.“Stand Your Ground” with its vague provision of “Reasonable Belief” obstructing justice from being fully satisfied.
Self-Deputizing any Zimmerman with a gun and a grudge. Discouraging year for gun laws reform. Mass killings on a continuous cycle being perpetrated by grudge toting gun zealots is not enough. Now we are saddled with Lax Laws that encourage and legalizes killing situations.
Frightening is the thought that these grudge gun totting individuals walk daily amongst our populace in public. Teaching our children that this is a permissible way of life. Violence to beget violence.
Our frail legislatures obtaining their continuous infusion of their “Fix” from their pusher man the lobbyist, will keep us in this dysfunctional quagmire for many years to come.
Voters have the opportunity to remove those they suspect as being addicts from their legislature’s come 2014. Otherwise we can just keep recycling and compound what that educates to our children to do, the same over and over again.
Geez Blarney, I see you're still posting the same old liberal garbage. There are only two people that know if the whole incident was racial. One is dead and you're not Zimmerman, so what you offer is speculation only.

While we are on the subject of gun control. There are a lot more than just white people who wish to retain their right to own a gun. Many other people own guns to protect themselves.

Black on black crime is a bigger issue than the Zimmerman vs. Martin thing. I noticed the politicians don't care to bring it up. It doesn't suit their political agenda, so let's not talk about Chicago.

Every decent hardworking black American or any other decent hard working American of any race has the right to protect their own lives and family. You stupid liberals who think that you know best don't live in rough neighborhoods.

As for Zimmerman. He was lawfully acquitted of wrongdoing, but it's a good thing for him that stupidity is not a crime. The whole thing leading up to the shooting could have been avoided by just standing down when the police dispatcher told him too. The whole thing turned into a tragic incident because he wanted to be an over-zealous Dudley Do-Right.

Well here we go again with another bogus “Stand Your Ground” trial. ONCE AGAIAN in Florida.
http://myfox8.com/2013/07/16/the-other-fla-mu ...
Right on the heels of the George Zimmerman trial, another controversial and tragic self-defense case is making its way to court. This time, the scene is Jacksonville, Florida, and the story involves Jordan Davis, an African-American teen the same age as Trayvon Martin.Davis, 17, was shot to death by Michael Dunn in November 2012.
Dunn told police that he asked Davis and three other teens, who were parked next to him at a gas station, to turn down their music. Dunn says he heard threats from the teens and saw a gun in their car. He says he feared for his own safety, and that’s why he grabbed his gun and fired into the vehicle.
Police say that they found no guns inside the teens’ vehicle! Dunn fired his gun eight or nine times. Needs a bigger gun… That’s the NRA solution for these nuts.
What am I the only one, that can see the travesty of this bogus law. Now would be a good time to bring this one right wing nut law to the Supreme Court and have it cast out unto the waters of oblivion along with the Tea that spawns such dysfunctional laws.

Now lets get back to the Chasm theory of mine.
I view this as another example of many that the traditionalist conservative republican are distancing themselves from the Tea extremist. Observe similar scenario that played out.
Democrats and republican moderates have joined forces. Sweeping aside the Tea Party and the right extremist. In all places, Arizona! A previous bulwark of the Tea Party.
Between them both they actually came to a budget with bipartisan support. On June 13, 2013 Governor Jan Brewer {R} Led the way that will add over 300,000 of their uninsured citizens, to the roles of the insured. Embracing the Obamacare Health Care Plan.
Governor Jan Brewer gathered up her allies and repulsed themselves from the Tea’s extremist view’s. Carrying it so far, as not to answerer any of the Tea’s antagonist questions and voting down any of their proposals.
Obamacare exposed the rift that is growing into a chasm, betwixt the traditionalist republican and the Tea‘s extremist.
Senator John McCain leads the traditionalist to cast out the Tea out unto the waters of political oblivion.
Arizona Senate Tea President Andy Biggs {R} who was a staunch opponent to the Obamacare was swept aside. Constant redundant dysfunctional rhetoric and derogatory remarks was all the Tea extremist had to offer..”
The chasm widens..

Time for our legislators and or courts to respond with an intelligent solution, is presently our only recourse. I observe who made this law and those that support it. There in I find the focal point of the problem and it could also be the origin of many other failed policies. Time to cast them out ,{R}, at every opportunity.{2014}

Total partisan crap. But what more could we expect from you?. The "Stand Your Ground" law is a good law. Sure, a few idiots will abuse it, but what else would you expect from a large population?.

You leftist/Progressive/Democrat Socialist fools want all laws in society geared for the dumbest, most irresponsible and totally worthless trash in this society. If the day ever comes that you wonder where all of the freedoms have gone and why, you only have to go look in the mirror.

These bleeding heart morons like Blarney and his ilk are only using Martin and Zimmerman to further their anti-gun agenda. They did it with the massacre at Sandy Hook and they are still looking for any excuse to
continue.

Funny how they don't want to talk about 300+ innocent Mexican civilians and a Border Patrol Agent murdered by Holders DOJ Fast and Furious program. Nor, will they talk about the continuous slaughter and crime in Chitcago which has the strictest gun laws in the nation.

Rick Perry has just announced a trip to Israel in addition to his announcement that he will not seek re-election to the office of Governor.

Fellow Texans, Perry has just started campaigning for President! My gripe is that he is doing it on our time and possibly even our dime. My point is that the man should wait until he is no longer Governor of Texas to start his political posturing.

The man doesn't stand a chance of becoming President. He really should concentrate on running Texas until his term is ended. Jeb Bush has a much greater chance than Perry. I feel that Bush is going to run.

I think that Clinton can beat both Perry and Bush, but that is putting the cart before the horse because the immediate concern is that Perry should not be concentrating on anything but Texas.

No different than when he was running for the Republican nomination in the last Presidential Primary, he did on our dime and our time. Hell yes we the people of Texas are paying for it. He double dips on retirement and salary, he might as well take that third dip.

your dislike for Perry is influencing your thought processes.Your conclusion that Perry has no chance to be competitive in the 2016 presidential race therefore has no real validity.

waco, while I usually agree with you in this case I simply can not. Perry came off as a complete buffoon in the last primary, and damn near turned Texas into a laughing stock. Perry needs to just stay at home and take care of the states business and not be out making the rest of the world think that all Texans are idiots. Hopefully Anita isn't trying to convince him that God told her to have him run for President again. Rick and Anita are just a bad joke on Texas and I see no need to play that joke on the entire country.

Defiant Try to stay on the subject without your constantly evading the issue. Typical ploy of one that has no answer, no substance and no facts.
………Echoes Of Zimmerman
Stand Your Ground law illuminates its basic fundamental infrastructure that cast shadows, where the vigilantly seek their sanctuary.
Why even mass killers could seek sanctuary within the Stand Your Ground laws. Citing they feared for their lives from there victims.
Milwaukee gives us an example; A jury has been selected with one back person selected to decide the fate of the convicted John Spooner of first degree intentionally homicide.
John Spooner {white} shot and killed a 13 year old {black} Darius Simmons in May of 2012. Darius was retrieving his families garbage can’s when John Spooner approached him.
John Simmons demanded that Darius return his 4 shot guns, that he suspected, that Darius stole from his home 2 days prior. Darius denied any knowledge of those 4 shotguns and their theft. John then shoots and kills Darius.
Presently the defense of John Spooner moves the trial into its second phase requesting that John Spooner {76 Year Old} was not responsible due to his mental health.
Milwaukee has demonstrated, through their police department, on occasions, of racial insensitivities.
One example; the police denied a 22 year old {black} Derek Williams, was demonstrated, when he collapsed in the back of their police car, complains of unable to breath. Denying him CPR, until after he died. A more recent example; Darius’s Mother was denied to accompany her child to the hospital. Holding her in the back of police cars for questioning, lasting an hour and half !
Police then search her home and find no evidence linking Darius to the theft of the 4 Shoot Guns. They then arrest Darius’s brother for 5 municipal warrants.
Internal police investigators found none of its police policies were violated. Admitting only that “ A dimension of racial insensitivity that negatively influenced the trust of some members of the community”!
Mr. Gimbel, defense lawyer for John Spooner stresses’ that this is not a racial issue. Fearing links to the Zimmerman’s acquittal will have negative effects on the juries decision. Producing several neighbors from the neighborhood, of all races that John Spooner was well liked and not racial.
Voices on the street are passing the conceptions of their populace.“ There wouldn’t be no loopholes if the roles were reversed” and “ If John Spooner gets off like Zimmerman, then this whole system is a mess”.
Now when will Defiant grows a set and becomes defiant to his own nonsense and lack of any authority.

Except his dismal numbers in the 2012 primary. In 2012 Perry garnered ZERO delegates, got .7% of the popular vote, did not win a single state, and never even won a district.

Isn't that valid enough for you?
