Perhaps the "ghetto uniform" of dark colored hoodies is not suspicious in YOUR neighborhood (I'm guessing that the uniform is what you and all the ghetto rats wear, just in case you want to hide your face as ThugBoy Trayvon did), but in MINE.......yeah, a stranger wandering the streets at night in the rain with clothing that conceals his face, particularly when he deliberately (according to HoDeDe) put the hood up AFTER he realized that someone was watching him, is indeed suspicious. My black friends won't let their kids wear a hoodie of any kind because they are so identified with violent crimes. The black kids in my neighborhood walk around with pants that fit, no face-concealing hoodies, and respond respectfully when addressed by adults. I fully realize that the concept of good kids is absolutely alien to you, but they do exist, and they don't want to be associated with the likes of Trayvon ThugBoy Martin even by a similar style of dress. Besides, they're not ghetto rats, they're kids from good families, educated and involved parents, and they're headed for college not jail like Trayvon ThugBoy Martin was.
Exactly. In my neighborhood, many stores forbid hoodies because of the crimes associated with them. People like Barefoot that live in the hills at his trailer park have no experience with this, but those of us in the city do. We lost a store clerk for that very reason. He was off duty and went back to his place of work to purchase some items. He witnessed three Travon's in the store with their hoodies on and told them they have to remove their hoods. That's when one of the Travon's turned around, shot and killed him. He wasn't even on the clock.

As a citizen who listens to his police scanner frequently, many suspects are described as young black males with hoodies. Not only are hoodies good for hiding faces, but they can be quickly removed in the event of a police foot chase throwing off officers who already have a description of the suspect(s).

It's not unusual that Zim would have suspicions of Martin even if for that reason alone. But that wasn't the only reason. It was raining and Martin stopped several times as if the rain didn't bother him. Zim also noted he was not a familiar face in the complex.

Alcohol treatment classes are frequently used in exchange for jail time in DUI cases. It doesn't mean that somebody is an alcoholic, it means they got caught one time. Courts seldom exchange those classes with jail time on second offenses.

Thirty years ago or so, DUI was no major deal. As time went on, families who lost loved ones because of a drunk driver and the media made alcohol consumption a major offense. But our over-crowded jails can't hold those people for very long. Years ago, if a cop found you driving while drinking, he would simply follow you home to make sure you got there alright. Because any one of us can make a mistake while being intoxicated, those classes are used to free up more space in our prisons and give people a second chance without spending time in jail.

More people die today from gun shots than by drunk drivers.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM !

I wonder what is going to happen come January?

Do you think you gun gnutters can cover up Sandy Hook by then?

Hint: 25 people were murdered by gun shot yesterday. Yesterday was a pretty typical day.

And the vast majority of those murders were committed by young black men. Perhaps THAT is the problem you and your people should be focused on. If ThugBoy Trayvon Martin had lived, he would have committed who knows how many more crimes before he was either shot down or imprisoned for life. Mr. Zimmerman spared the world more of the drug dealing thief's crimes. I wonder if the incubator is wearing that stolen jewelry that her spawn couldn't explain possession of.

Stop trying to defer the fact that Martin had the drug problem. There is not one iota of proof that George had any dependency on illegal drugs, idiot. You are just like all of the thug supporters who try to use that incident back in 2005 to counter the fact that Martin did use illegal drugs and it appears from his social media he sold them. You live by the idea that if you tell a lie over and over that somehow it becomes real. Stop it stupid.

I would NEVER reply to you but I don't want others that come on here and read your lies to take them for a fact, coward that you are.

Sure are some impotent posts being removed.

To recap:

TM had no idea GZ was on the phone with N/E dude.
Could have been GZ's "boys"
The ATF agent tells a different tale about the "sting".
GZ harasses by proxy.

Yes, inane stuff. Impotent.....indeed.

We all like to think we have some sort of cape. Mostly, to cloak ourselves with.

If that principal had access to a gun those children would be alive today. Adam Lanza didn't have on a bullet proof vest he was wearing a utility vest.

Utah is smart, their teachers are being trained to carry and protect the ones they are responsible for, innocent little children. Their students will not be sitting targets for some derangd maniac.

What utter nonsense. ThugBoy Trayvon was not just "out walking". He was loitering at night, looking into other people's houses. When he was observed, he deliberately hid his face. He ran, then waited for Mr. Zimmerman and ASSAULTED HIM. You thug-loving nitwits can't seem to comprehend that it is not illegal to watch someone. It is not illegal to get out of your vehicle. It IS illegal to attack someone and bang their head on the ground!!!! For krissakes, are you all just stupid?!?!?!? If I had done the things that that filthy ghetto rat thug did and got myself killed, YES, my family would recognize that I deserved what I got. If you were attacked and were in fear of your life from some punk-ass thug, and you had a legally obtained and permitted gun, would you just lay there and let the scumbag kill you?????????? I think some of you idiots WOULD. Like THUGBOY TRAYVON, you're just too damn stupid to live.
