Aren't you the one who says our past dictates our future. I found the article interesting that a pittsfield resident was responsible for making a change for the good that touches so many.

Stop being such a hater.

I did not believe a word from those two cops who testified for Georgie Zimmerman. I also didn't believe Georgie's mother, or uncle, or any of the others who testified to his character, including the testimony that because Georgie was grossly obese he was somehow unable to fight off the kid with the skiddles. The kid, the suspect, Georgie pursued. Maybe grossly obese, cop wan-a-be Georgie just wanted the dead kid's skiddles.
