You are a moron.

In the Martin case, a kid was shot & killed & the police didn't press charges or even investigate Zimmerman.

With the baby being shot, are you saying the shooter would not be prosecuted?

And really, arresting a man for breaking into his own home is pretty GD stupid.

Individuals buying health insurance on their own will see their premiums tumble next year in New York State as changes under the federal health care law take effect, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced on Wednesday.

State insurance regulators say they have approved rates for 2014 that are at least 50 percent lower on average than those currently available in New York. Beginning in October, individuals in New York City who now pay $1,000 a month or more for coverage will be able to shop for health insurance for as little as $308 monthly.

President Obama touts healthcare law today as Republicans grovel!

GO GENIUS!

Getting it done for everyone.

You're full of shit. If you get shot with anything with any punch, when you're shot, you're not capable of carrying on a physical fight... unless it's just a scratch (makes me want to sing a Beatles song...) Wherever you're hit, that part of your body is disabled. Then, your body will go into shock. You'll last as long as the adrenalin lasts, provided the bullet didn't hit any bone or vital organ. In other words, you just got nicked, not shot.
Please stop. You're embarrassing yourself. You haven't got a clue about what's coming out of your mouth.
I might add that getting nicked by .45ACP will take you out of the fight. A 9mm won't.
Guess which one you'll see when you come through the window at my house?

I think it is time to move away from accusing Zimmerman of murder and racial profiling but not necessarily away from the deep seated racial animosity. It's a problem that should not be swept under the rug.

When we have a city like Chicago and Philadelphia closing down public schools in underprivileged areas {90 percent of students affected by public school closings in Chicago are African American; 79% in Philadelphia} we have a problem.

"From Oct. 21, 2010, to Jan. 1, 2013, the Office of Civil Rights has investigated 27 school closings, finding insufficient evidence of civil rights violations in every case. Currently, the office has 33 open cases involving 29 school districts in 22 states, officials said."

Is it any wonder blacks feel disenfranchised? Hopefully the Trayvon Martin case will open up much needed dialogue.

President Barack Obama on Thursday took advantage of his platform touting the economic benefits of the Affordable Care Act to chastise Republicans for their continued attempts to derail his signature health care law.
"Despite all the evidence that the law is working as it should, for middle class Americans, yesterday Republicans in the House of Representatives voted for nearly the 40th time to dismantle it," he said.
"Some of them seem to think this law is about me," he quipped, referring to politicans rallying against Obamacarne. "It's not. I already have really good health care."

The case was about race! The case was about the right to carry! The case was about SYG! The case was about lousy police work!
The case was "not" about sex.
Getting a potential defendant to talk as freely as Zimmerman did, including on camera, seems like good police work.

If they had arrested him immediately, they would have had nothing at all.

Now, if you're talking about that ObamaKKKare medical examiner, you may have a point.

Oh, I don't know, VHB, it might be that the baby shooter was arrested (and will probably fry) almost immediately, and after forty-eight days Zimmerman was still free and according to Sanford officials not going to be charged with anything...also, I don't think a white hispanic baby would really look like Obama. Of course, I agree that the Boston cop behaved stupidly in body slamming and elderly prof with a cane who was trying to get into his own house.

Say a plain clothed police officer thought that a dangerous drug dealer was hiding out in a given apartment. He sneaks up & ties the doorknob but the door is locked. He steps back, kicks the door open & enters.

But the officer was wrong. An innocent man was watching TV & grabbed his gun as his door was kicked in.

The officer saw the gun & shot & killed the tenant.

Now what.

The right whiners would blame the apartment dweller for being aggressive by pulling his gun. After all, if he did not pull his gun threatening the intruder, he would be alive.

The right whiners would ignore that the officer ignored protocol, broke into an innocent man's apartment, did not identify himself as a police officer all leading to the man's death.

This is the Zimmerman case. Zimmerman targeting an innocent boy walking home thinking he was the neighborhood thief. He stalked Martin making Martin feel threatened. Martin reacted to this threat & Zimmerman shot him.

Involuntary manslaughter at the least.

Martin's parents said they still believe Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, racially profiled their son.
"Obviously, any time you have a person that makes an assumption that a person is up to no good, that's some kind of profiling," Martin said. "Was he racially profiled? I think if Trayvon had been white, this never would have happened."
Martin's parents said they support the federal government looking into the case. The Justice Department announced Sunday it plans to review the case to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges now that Zimmerman has been acquitted.

<quoted text> Black people are not allowed to "stand their ground" & defend themselves.
Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.

http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/16/blacks-bene...

Approximately one third of Florida “Stand Your Ground” claims in fatal cases have been made by black defendants, and they have used the defense successfully 55 percent of the time, at the same rate as the population at large and at a higher rate than white defendants, according to a Daily Caller analysis of a database maintained by the Tampa Bay Times. Additionally, the majority of victims in Florida “Stand Your Ground” cases have been white.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, 59 percent of blacks who killed a white were acquitted under the Stand Your Ground law.

Yes, there was a bigger percentage of whites acquitted but blacks don't make up the majority of Florida's population.

So just hush, okay? Seriously.
