Bernie de la Rionda SHAMELESSLY invokes MLK so
now you are racist if you don't agree with the prosecution:
On Thursday, prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda contended that the only reason to find prosecution star witness Rachel Jeantel uncredible would be racism -- her lack of sophistication and Haitian background.I had a dream that today a witness would be judged not on the color of her personality but the content of her testimony, de la Rionda said.
She was his witness but he said she's 18 or 19. I know she's 19, why doesn't he?
Then he said she can't read or speak well because of her Haitian background.
I know she was born, raised, and educated in Miami, why doesn't he?
Could he be a desperate liar?

He really said that? You're right, that is really shameless.

Well, lets see, I'm white and female, and the mother of a 19 year old who wears hoodies, so perhaps I'm biased. I watched the prosecution present their closing argument this afternoon, which included a video of GZ walking the police through the incident, at the site. If he was so scared of Travon, why did he exit his vehicle to 'get a street name.' His self defense is all BS - he initiated and escalated the situation - from his walk through, it's very obvious that he was following TM. He, the armed, martial arts-studying police wannabe was the aggressor - supposedly GZ's injuries were the result of his being 'attacked' by TM. Unfortunately, TM isn't alive to offer up his version of what happened; the minor injuries that GZ incurred were probably the result of Travon defending HIMSELF. George wanted to be a neighborhood 'hero' - taking down a criminal; preventing another break in. It's too bad that the young man he encountered was only armed with skittles and an iced tea, a kid who had as much right to be in the neighborhood as GZ did. This isn't about race - it's about what's right and what's wrong. Hunting, tracking and then killing a person because you 'think' they may be a criminal is WRONG. George deserves a manslaughter conviction.

Oh this is sooooo about race. Thanks to the media.

If this was your child you would want justice...black or white. And to the ignorant person who posted the racist comments...not all black people are violent or weak. And contrary to your comments I believe an all women jury is capable of reaching a sound verdict. Clearly you are an older (racist) white male.

GZ is a racist coward and should be convicted! He is the loser that initiated the fight even though he claims to be non aggressive. He is a
DISGRACE. Thank god he will never be in law enforcement. What gave him the right to stalk and kill an innocent teenage boy who just wanted a snack? I'm not buying what GZ is trying to sell. I call BS!
