Well well well, now Sharpton thinks the Jury in the Trayvon Martin case in incompetent and gave a wrong verdict. Now they are protesting to get US AG Eric "the Liar" holder to file charges of hate crime against Zimmerman. Sharpton needs to get a job. Where was he and Jessie" I aint his daddy" Jackson when OJ Simpson murdered two innocent white people, oh my bad, they were white, that's not a hate crime. Where were all these damn protesters when this happened. The two biggest racist in this country is The so called "Reverend" Al Sherpton, and Jessie Jackson. If they are reverends, and I use the term Reverend loosely in their case, they should be promoting peace and let God take care of this. Racism will never die in this country as long as those two are breathing good air. Do something constructive for a change, " SHUT THE HELL UP."

There was a big "todo" about the 911 tape with a voice hollering for help. I got a question for ya. If you have two people fighting, one is on the bottom and the other on the top with the one on the bottom getting his head repeatedly slammed on a concrete walkway, which one would be doing the hollering for help? The one getting his head beat on the concrete which was Zimmerman or the one doing the beating, Martin?

And as far as Sharpton and Jackson are concerned, they are nothing in the world but trouble makers, instigators and the two biggest Racist in this country. Start crap and then run a hide.

Those who are burning American flags or even state flags are anti-americans in marching or riots. Hopefully they just need to go away..as far as Zimmerman yes he shot an intruder because FlorIda state laws declare "Stand Your Own Ground". Maybe they just need to change the law but it won't bring the young black man back.
Nothing no one can do and as far as civil don't think it will happen in this case.

I just want to say to you that none of this wouldn't of happened if GZ wouldn't assumed TM was up to no good and keep following him. AND AS far as GZ getting his head beating repeatedly getting head slammed in concrete.If that was true he would have more server head trama. NOT 2 lil cuts that didn't even need stitches. MAYBE TM saw the gun a was fighting for his life. GZ is guilty he needs to be punished. he killed a teenager for no reason. It don't matter to me what color he was TM didn't deserve to die. GZ is liar. Imagin if that was your 17 year old son

They only racist remark was made by Trayvon Martin. Interesting that no one seems to care about that or the national news does not carry the story that two teenage black boys shot a toddler in the head after trying to rob the baby's mother. Racism is almost always black against any other race.

you must forgot what GZ said. and for the baby story. yes that is treribbile. but remember this I bet those teenagers will be punished to the fullest. witch they should get 1st degree murder charges, I hope. But GZ didn't get held resposable for killing a teenager that was doin nothing but goin home. He should of got manslaughter.

Trayvon Martin held his destiny in the palm of his hand that night. He had plenty of opportunity to go home. Did he, no. You talk about rights. GZ had just as much rights in getting out of his car, I don't think there is a law against that, following Trayon, I don't think there is law against that. Trayvon took it as a insult and confronted GZ. Trayvon through the punch. Trayvon was beating GZ head on the concrete. What was GZ suppose to do? Ly there and get himself killed. No. He did what you or I would have done or I guess you would have defended yourself, I know I would have. You probably would have just laid there and took the beating, getting your head busted open, saying, oh, this is a 17 year old, I can't do nothing or oh, he is black, I can't do nothing. GZ defended himself because he thought he was going to die. Tell me one thing that GZ did that was against the law. Just one.....

GZ did nothing that was against the law and he acted accordingly to the actions that were taken against him. Just like I would have done.

what about the pictures on the news were of Trayvon when he was 12 and not 17 when the incident happened... why didn't the news put out there what Trayvon looked like at the time he was shot... and that he had just been in trouble for punching a bus driver in the face and then was in trouble for taking marijuan to school and had stolen jewlery in his possession with a screwdriver that he just happened to find on the side of the road.. NOT!!!

reporting any of this wouldn't serve to further the agenda, it wouldn't make for good media coverage, and it sure wouldn't be good to promote racism.

How ignorant you are! Please tell me where you got your stats on crime from...are you some sort of crime data analyst? As for Trayvon's racist remark, to him it was probably just like one of us(white folks)saying A**hole or SOB...or unfortunately the "N" word...some of us still use it around here...probably YOU! Trayvon's words were nothing to get shot over, so shut your ignorant mouth. And before you point fingers at me...NO..I am not black and I only have a few black friends, so that's not why I'm saying this......I see WRONG when people do WRONG...that's all.

Harassment!...is NOT OK! GZ was told NOT to bother TM. It wasn't his job or his place to bother TM! TM had the right to go walk to the store and buy candy and walk home!!! He also had the right to walk fast or slow or " suspicious". He also , obviously, had the right to "stand his ground" if he felt threatened. How do you know TM didn't feel like he had been threatened??

More ignorance...I sure hope this is not indicative of all of us here in S GA. I hope some WHITE people out there have some sense! Am I alone? WOW....
Now, WTH difference does it make if TM had weed one day at school or if he was in possession of jewelry or if he had a screwdriver? How many of us, or how many 17 year olds do we know, that might have had a bag of weed or ever stolen anything or God forbid, ever had a screwdriver in their bookbag. Do we, or they, deserve to be shot because of things done in the past? I understand the point...TM might not have been an upstanding citizen, but we are talking about THAT night, not his past.

Which is more confrontational, "Watching somebody" or "getting your head busted open and a punch in the nose"?

those things did make a difference, they helped prove that he wasn't the sweet innocent boy the media made him out to be. he was a criminal, like it or not. regardless of his crimes, he was a criminal. he and GZ chose to engage in a physical altercation; GZ by following TM, and TM by not just leaving. they were both wrong, that's the bottom line. a man lost his life because both of them made poor choices. GZ was wrong to follow TM; he should have stayed in his vehicle per the neighborhood watch guidelines. TM was wrong to threaten GZ's life and refuse to leave the area. if someone threatens my life, i feel i have the right to defend myself. i would be scared and in fear of bodily harm. if a physical altercation then ensued, i would do what i need to protect my life. unfortunately for TM, GZ had a gun. had GZ been without a gun, who knows what may have happened. GZ may be dead. would that have been justified? no. both of them got themselves in over their heads. GZ did not go in with the intent to kill TM, just as TM didn't walk thru that neighborhood with the intention of assaulting a man. both of those things happened. GZ spent time in jail, and he is going to be remembered the rest of his life for what happened. he'll never be "free" again. i think everyone needs to just move on, he was found not guilty by a jury and that cannot be undone.
