Right or wrong there would have been no trial without Obama, Holder, and the NAACP. BUT if they all wanted a trial about a civil rights violation they should have gone there right from the get go. Now it is nothing more than a racist attack on someone who has been found NOT GUILTY by a jury of his peers in open court. Any further action will amount to doulble jeapordy and pure racism by a group of racist who did not get the verdict that they wanted. SORRY FOLKS JUST THE FACTS!
Facts my butt, that claim is a complete myth.

Not a word about the black on black crime that occurs on the hour in Florida. Where's the justice for the little girl shot in her bedroom by thugs driving by?
And the NRA supporting "weapons of mass destruction?" You have shown your ignorance.

Nothing about the black on white crime either, but then there never is. You may wish that that my claim is a myth Actually, BUT it isn't, the same with the 2+million dollar trip to Chicago for Obamas wife and girls to attend the Beyonce consert, ON OUR MONEY! Must be nice.

a few months ago a black teenager gunned down a white infant,despite the pleas of the mother.Where is the outcry,black
America?Guess so many whites are getting killed by blacks its just not news.This hypocrisy should not go unanswered.Maybe blacks think that when a white person is butchered by a black person,the white person "had it coming"?My sister was almost killed by black man with a gun.Where was the NAACP?Oh,that`s right.Don`t count when the victim is white.

You got that right waco, we have to pay for all that slavery, I guess it just doesn't matter that the folks resposible have been dead a long long time. BUT you do need to remember that the CP does stand for COLORED PEOPLE. NAACP-KKK racist organizations both. Oh I almost forgot Skin Heads-Black Panthers racist organizations both. RACISTS COME IN ALL COLORS FOLKS! While we may never become totaly color blind, what does it cost us to be respectful of one another? You don't have to invite someone of a different color over for dinner, but you don't have to hate them either.

The NAACP has evolved into a racist organization.Political correctness has evolved into the suppression of free speech.Christianity is also becoming verboten.There comes a time when resistance becomes necessary.

Just knew the racist cards would come out. Even when both parties in the trial agreed it was not the issue with them as it is with those sooooo concerned with it. Where is TRUTH to straighten the supports for these racist concerns. Now back to the real inequality that is eating up your lives. Pushing all of the racist and the non racist off into the dark dungeons of inequality.
Here is One example of suppressing inequality for the benefit of the populace rather than to a select small corporate minority, of greed…
Supreme Court strikes down Myraid Genetics claim to the human genes patent for the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 tests. Unanimously agreeing that no corporate holds the authority to hold patents on human genes. Excluded will be laboratory synthetic DNA discoveries.
Striking down the monopoly and leveling the corporate competition field here in the USA as well as through out the world. Privileged health at the cost at the demise of the less fortunate’s health, has been correctly judged to be illegal.
Myraid’s BRCA tests two human genes for the probability of producing breast cancer. They claim monopolistic rights for their administration and making any second opinion illegal. Charging $4,000 for two genes to be tested by their procedures, which only the most affluent could afford.
Presently it cost $1,000 to have your genes sequenced and far less for specific pathologies of the sequence. Myraid’s claim to patent stopped any other agency to address the issue with lower cost.
After the ruling Ambry Genetics and Gene by Gene picked up the cause to reduce the cost so that the general public can make use of these tests. Second opinions welcomed.
Excellent example of how the American corporate with their intellectual properties regimes’ policies has fostered a negative opinion from the “World Trade Organizations”. American’s advocating the suppression of human rights violations is observed as hypocrisy. American’s corporate with abused rights that promotes inequality. Sovereignties now are reluctant to trade with USA corporatist. Fearing the tentacles of these corporatist’s will fester additional inequality to their constituents‘. Thus loss prospects to exports, which is a loss to revenue. Now that is one example of how inequality stifles the economic growth and security of the USA.
America inequality is now to be associated with sovereignties such as Turkey and Iran and increasing to be aligned with the improvised sovereignties of Africa and Latin America. AND we all know the history of inequality with their tyrants demise, over and over …

I don’t see a strong case for civil rights violation. Consider it as a measure to keep the media’s attention focused until they get enough strength to move on the Civil Lawsuits for wrongful death. Betting on humans is not practical. Prefer to play the lotto. Chances are better there.
malcious prosecution? HA,ha, funny one there.. Good luck with that....

Alan and George have their opinions. In the end reality will produce the answer. All we can do is speculate from past experiences that have occurred and decide for ourselves what we make of it.
Still hold my opinion that George is all washed up as far as getting his American Dream. Who knows he could write a book and become a millionaire and put all this behind him.“OR” some zealot nut assassinates him using some purchased gun that can’t be traced to him. Life has so many variables. That’s why its so much fun…

His story will be worth millions. Move to England, sign a deal, and take it easy for the rest of his life. Zealot with a gun in England, the gun is enough to put you away there for a long long time. Use it and you never get out.

I'm thinking the pot will continue to be stirred and people will miss an event that Washington doesn't want them to notice. The Martin/Zimmerman situation is over. The jury has spoken, the "Special Prosecutors" didn't deliver. What is the famous quote "never let a crisis go to waste".

Tex returns to sweeten the comments.
Move to England to write a book? Nah not a good idea. Move to a sovereignty that has no extradition agreements with the USA. AND will not assist the USA in enforcing their laws. Become a citizen if required to that nation. Self exiled. Then he could use that in his story line. Then Martins family will go there or a representative to haunt Georgey which then can lead to a movie production story for a sitcom.
Once again your ignorant of what you comment about. England does allow guns to its citizens. Difference is they are far more regulated in who is allowed a gun. Those weak minded with their tin hat and raccoon caps chanting some glorious theme for some perverted ideology will not be allowed to have a gun. Alas most of the right wing nuts on this thread would not be eligible to own a gun. That is how a matured sovereignty deals with guns. Superior to the callow naïve policies of the colonies.
Once again we can observe how the Tea can transform a Tex into a Tex-a-can-a. Yippee Yay Ky Yay chauvinistic babbling idiot.

"For North Korean weapons smugglers, death is apparently preferable to failure. Panamanian authorities say the captain of a North Korean-flagged ship tried to kill himself after military equipment was found concealed in containers of brown sugar, CNN reports. The ship, which had sailed from Cuba, was stopped on the Atlantic side of the Panama Canal after authorities received intelligence that drugs were on board. They found the undeclared weapons instead.

Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli says the ship was carrying suspected "sophisticated missile equipment" and a United Nations team will be asked to inspect the cargo, reports the BBC. "We're going to keep unloading the ship and figure out exactly what was inside," he says. "You cannot go around shipping undeclared weapons of war through the Panama Canal." The 35-member crew was arrested after a struggle with authorities, who say the "violent reaction of the captain and the crew" to the search aroused their suspicions." Where you think they were going? Left Cuba, that's 90 miles.

……………….Trayon Martin Legacy;
USA has once again exhibited its undercurrents of racism. Acquittal of all charges and the battle over gun reforms serves to illuminate to all the world our lopsided Judicial system.
Virtually any dark skinned person can relate to similar eerily scenarios in, various degrees, their lives that they suffered or witnessed. Racism resides within insidious forms permeating through our USA society.
Supreme Court’s decision against our voters rights, exemplifies the naïve conceptions that our justice system still harbor on racism. Court’s statement “Things Have Changed Dramatically” illuminates their naïve comprehension on the issue.
Justice Departments advancing an investigation may yet come to expose the lax laws that supports and creates such Zimmerman scenarios.“Stand Your Ground” with its vague provision of “Reasonable Belief” obstructing justice from being fully satisfied.
Self-Deputizing any Zimmerman with a gun and a grudge. Discouraging year for gun laws reform. Mass killings on a continuous cycle being perpetrated by grudge toting gun zealots is not enough. Now we are saddled with Lax Laws that encourage and legalizes killing situations.
Frightening is the thought that these grudge gun totting individuals walk daily amongst our populace in public. Teaching our children that this is a permissible way of life. Violence to beget violence.
Our frail legislatures obtaining their continuous infusion of their “Fix” from their pusher man the lobbyist, will keep us in this dysfunctional quagmire for many years to come.
Voters have the opportunity to remove those they suspect as being addicts from their legislature’s come 2014. Otherwise we can just keep recycling and compound what that educates to our children to do, the same over and over again.

Zimmerman took a black woman to his prom. he tutored minority children. Martin actually circled back to confront Zimmerman. Martin struck the first and the only blows.
