Yes the banksters are terrible.

<quoted text> Those news groups sure have backed off. They are back peddling fast. I have seen some that were damning Zimmerman before now support him. Where is Sharpton, Jackson, and Spike Lee now? The rats are abandoning the sinking ship. Why has Zimmerman had twice as many donations as Trayvons family? Kind of funny how real facts instead of soapbox antics come to the surface no matter how hard you try to ignore them.
The bigger problem may be if Zimmerman is found not guilty rioting may start. I doubt that would impact my life since I live in a fairly rural area. But, if my home is attacked I will defend it. With just over 30,000 rounds of ammo I doubt I’ll run out.

I still want to know why the New Black Panthers haven’t been arrested. A very public death threat, a very serious offense.

I'm on the side of Trayvon's mother and family because they got caught up in a gotcha moment by Zimmerman and a legal system that has a history of turning a blind eye to similar murders of young Black men.
At the murder scene Travyon was being prepped to be another young Black male with a questionable death swept under a rug by law enforcement. A police department with a questionable past involving the treatment and investigations of one too many murdered Black male victims at the hands of Whites. Is it really any wonder why an arrest took over 2 months?
However, before this tragedy was swept under a rug, there was a mostly Black media watching, and reporting specifics until Trayvon became national and then a worldwide name. Why did it become a world wide story? Because initially, the pieces of this puzzle shared by the police, prosecutors and the only eye witness were not consistent All the pieces just didn't fit and millions took notice.

Your position assumes Martin is innocent. Is he? Prove it. That’s why this case is so difficult.

Unacceptable burden of blackness in America? You must be kidding. Another excuse to sit around collecting government funds.

Jesse Jackson played a small role and moved on. Sharpton stayed on the case until an arrest was made and he continues to report any updates on his syndicated TV show Politics Nation on MSNBC. Ed Shultz and Lawrence O'Donnell who just happen to be White, also continued to follow up on the details surrounding the unanswered questions with expert guest and visits from Trayvon's parents.
There has been no full disclosure of the amounts of cash given to the Martin family. The Martin family has recieved something money cannot buy and that is the support of over 2 million Americans who have willingly signed petetions for the arrest of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin. The only support for Zimmerman has been his family, one so-called questionable close friend Joe Oliver, and one neighbor.

You’re right. Jackson did play a small role. He claimed Martin was shot in the back of the head and Jackson slithered off.

The rest of your rant reads like who-who in the lying liberal faction.

That's definitely proof of a detention or attempt at custody.

Here's a little something for you to think about. If GZ is found not guilty and you blacks decide that the fight for "jestice" includes rioting, looting, and assaulting, be prepared for the consequences, because we are. Most of us here in Seminole county are fed up with this nonsense. So, if you think you're going to have free reign to riot and attack and be protected because you're black and you're fighting for "jestice", think again.

Evidently, these guys were never implicated in MSNBC's show, "To Catch A White Sex Predator" so they had "bridge program" instead, lol...

By Pete Williams, NBC News justice correspondent

Federal agents have arrested five people who were plotting to blow up a bridge near Cleveland, Ohio, an incident not connected to the anniversary of former al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden's death, officials say.

Douglas L. Wright, 26, Brandon L. Baxter, 20, and Anthony Hayne, 35, were arrested by members of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force on April 30 on charges of conspiracy and attempted use of explosive materials to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce. Also arrested were Connor C. Stevens, 20, and Joshua S. Stafford, 23. Charges are pending against them.

The five were "controlled by an undercover FBI employee," and agents had them under extensive surveillance for a long period of time. The explosives they allegedly purchased were inoperable.

Why is it that those who disagree with you must live in trailers? I'm starting to think that YOU must live in a trailer and feel some sort of shame because of it. Sorry to disappoint you, but I do not live in a trailer, though I do vacation in one in the Keys. But, let me say if they do riot, and I'm sure they will if GZ is not found guilty, they need to realize that many of us are not PC, nor are we going to stand by and idly let them have their way with our belongings. I hope the store owners as well are arming themselves in preparation. If they decide to riot, they should be aware that the Ski'ulls served at my house taste like lead, not a rainbow.
