So? So?

Why is it so easy for you to brush this death off like it's nothing and harp on Trayvon's morning, noon, and night?

Trayvon may or may not have been guilty- the other guy was trying to steal a pair of shoes. Why is it OK to shoot someone over shoes? If you are going to be outraged over senseless shootings, then the outrage must be universal- not selective.

The rapist blames the victim.

That is the way with the only defense your pedophile has.

The only person with the arrest record is your pedophile.

On top of his long history of violence and evidence of his bad temper and his personality disorders.

I see. So is that the new way of law in this country; To judge people not by laws--but by popularity?
I would assume you people on the left figure we should decide guilt or innocence based on who you like or dislike and not the facts. Why not? That's how you vote for Presidents. You vote for politicians using the same criteria that you use for voting your favorite American Idol. DumBama sitting in the White House for two terms is living proof of that. He was a failure his first term and a failure now.
So some out of control leftist gathered 10,000 signatures out of a population of 315 million people, and that should tell me that Zimmerman was not defending his life--but a cold blooded murderer?
Well lets wait and see.

When I think of this case, it reminds me of those four innocent, peaceful, civilized, respectful, kind, thoughtful altar boys that encountered Bernhard Goetz in the NYC subway many years ago.
Those poor boys got shot just for showing Mr. Goetz their favorite screwdriver that they used for helping little old ladies, grooming puppies, and helping the sun to shine.
We need to remember that any-race-on-black crime is racism; and all black-on-black crime is OK and should be ignored.
Google 'Chicago violence'; the first story comes up as 'Six Dead over First Summer Weekend'. But let's all stay focused on some wannabe vigilante cop and some teenage thug. Now THAT'S a good use of our time, yes?
And yet, here you are.

"We need to remember that any-race-on-black crime is racism; and all black-on-black crime is OK and should be ignored."

What a stupid thing to say.

<quoted text> You are absolutely correct, and i have mentioned the irony of this situation being this hot.....Two months ago, two black teen's found a hispanic mother, pushing her son in a stroller, in Brunswick, Georgia.....They pulled their gun and demanded her money....when she did'nt have any, they shot her one year old in the face, killing him........this incident was on mainstream news, all of 1-2 days....then forgotten.....but not poor Tray....An Outrage for REAL......
You need to look up the definition of irony.

This case has NOTHING similar to the Trayvon murder. NOTHING. They arrested the two thugs who senselessly murdered a baby. It was and is a big deal. They will never walk free again IMO.

But, it has nothing to do with the Trayvon murder case.

I can't figure out why you keep posting about it here. I'm sure there are forums that discuss it.

What does this have to do with Trayvon's murder?

Maybe you can start a thread to discuss the above since it piqued your interest.

The outrage would have been there if the shooters had been detained and let go with no arrest.

Here in CT a black girl killed her black boyfriend (by slamming him into a brick wall with her car), she wasn't arrested for weeks and the outrage was growing, even us whites were outraged.

Real bad day for West and O'Mara...real bad...West sold himself and then bought himself back and O'Mara was just stupid, beyond stupid actually.

The judge, with her hands full of nasty, did a very good job of sorting things out today.

What we learned today is that the state has a real case against George, leading us to wonder what it was that Norm Wolfinger and Billy Lee both missed.

Hunches?

This case is a tad light on actual facts...but the circumstantial evidence is leaning away from Zimmerman at present. The days final witness was enlightening. Very enlightening.

George was a creature of habit it appears.

Wolfinger and Zimmerman are ass kissing buddies and have been for some time.

Zimmerman has himself up on murder charges, something his daddy can't get him out of this time.

Bet he's wishing he could have a do over. He might go on about his business instead of picking on an unarmed boy, harmlessly walking home minding hi own business, not bothering anyone.

Did I say picking on? I meant murdering.

Just saying.
Right. Especially when the guy with the gun was said to be cool and calm after the shooting. If he was hysterical and yelling for help, he sure pulled himself together FAST.

Zimmbo, according to todays testimony was calm before and after the murder.
Who yelled the desperate call for help then?
