Here in Columbus, Ohio, we don't let the police, FBI or the US Attorney General solve our cases for us, unlessen they want to take the intiative to do so! That fat wanna be cop reject just wanted to see what it felt like to kill a black guy! You kill somebody in our family, we Pray the police set you free, so somebody in our family can repay that person back with interest! How much do you want to bet that Barack Obama won't even acknowledge this situation? If this 17to year old boy were Muslim, Gay, Hispanic and especially white, I bet Barack Obama would have issued a Press Conference! In situations like this, retaliation is a must!

Hold on Jimmy. I'm right there with you, but let's not go the violence route.

I agree, it's a shame that the president won't acknowledge this tragic situation. It is a political calculation made by his team during his entire first term when it comes to race.

Follow your head in this instance, not your heart. It's not easy for me either, but Martin Luther King was right when it comes to violence. Please, let's put such thoughts aside.

Just stating what would happen to this man if he killed someone in my family! What the family of the 17 year old boy do is up to them! I'm simply saying there isn't a force in this world strong enough to stop me from getting my hands on this man if he killed my innocent 17 year old son or anybody else in my family! Ask for Obama, former President Bill Clinton was more willing to embrace the black community and black struggles more than Obama has ever been willing to do! I feel that Obama embraces his white background more than his black background. In the black community, if you placed Bill Clinton up against Barack Obama in the African American Community, who do you think they would say did more for blacks? Obama not wanting to discuss racism against blacks because it could hurt his reelection bid is becoming a tired excuse! Bill Clinton was and continues to be the 1st black President to me because he tried to Unite the Races!

Are you really that ignorant or just attention seeking?I know you are real close to WV,but for God's sake show some sign of intelligence.What the hell does a football coach have to do with anything?Never heard of a 'faggot ass" football program before. And you think i am prejudice?And as for swamps,i've never even seen one,except for on TV.You really need an education.

How is a 17 year old boy that weighed 135 lbs, who just bought a bag of skittles, an Arizona Ice Tea and was carrying some change in his pocket a threat to a 200 lb portly man, with a handgun and a cell phone? Zimmerman was a fat reject cop that just wanted to see what it felt like to kill a young black man "perceived" to be a threat because he had his hands in his pockets and was wearing a hoodie!

How did Zimmerman know what he had in his pocket?How many times have police officers shot and killed someone like this,they felt threatened and shot an unarmed person.It happens.I don't know if Zimmerman felt threatened or not,all i know is he said he did.But at night,how did he know the kid was black,especially with a hoodie on?I do know the kids family and others have threatened Zimmerman and his entire family,they have all had to leave their homes and go into hiding.

I really do understand your frustration. I wrestle with it myself.

Bill Clinton was certainly my favorite. He didn't take crap from the republicans! We need more leaders like him.

Am I speaking to Candy Kane or Decent White Woman??? Are Floridians Schizophrenic as well as toothless? Enquiring minds want to know! Just to make one thing clear, I am not the one that started the name calling at the beginning! That was Candy Kane! I just retaliated, which I stated at the beginning is what we do here in Columbus, Ohio! I may have went a little overboard with the football comments, but here in Columbus, Ohio we bleed Scarlet and Grey! Go Buckeyes! Good night! I hope Zimmerman either gets thrown in jail or shot by somebody down there the number of times he shot that innocent black 17 year old boy! Karma!

Amen to that Christo! We need to pass a law here in the United States, similar to that of Russia, where a former Prime Minister, or in our case a former president can run for reelection as many times as they want! Vladimir Putin just became Russia's Prime Minister for the 3rd or 4th time! Imagine how many Americans would have jobs if former President Bill Clinton would have had the chance to be in office for 4 terms?

I hear you!

Way back when FDR was the president, the Republicans got tired of their butts being kicked in the elections. So they put through this law limiting the people's ability to elect whomever they want however many times they want.

The republicans seem to have this problem about giving people the ability to vote and who they should vote for.

In this case, I am pro-Obama and will definitely vote for him. Overall, considering what he is up against with these republicans who put obstacles in his every way...I believe he's doing a very good job.

But I am dismayed that he can call a college student to see how she's doing after being called terrible names, but cannot call to console the family of a murdered young man.

This all falls back to the police telling Zimmerman to stay in the car. You asking the question about Trayvon wearing the hoodie and Zimmerman seeing him as a treat makes no sense because, Zimmerman was supposed to stay in the car not get out and pretend to be a cop. How did Zimmerman know he was black you ask.....because Zimmerman told the police he was. You really arent a decent white woman...are you? This just proves why I stay away from white people. still baffles me how blacks date and marries whites. a blind man can see that ALL whites are racist.

Clinton helped put a lot of blacks in jail with a lot of the laws he enacted. I will say that I agree with you. I'm really getting tired of President Obama always staying neutral when it comes to black issues, yet keep coming back to us for our votes.

Educate yourself. Clinton signed and funded the "Crime Prevention Act " (CPA) that expanded the reach and scope of "Community Policing." He called it 100,00 more cops on the streets.

If you supported President Clinton's policy you are responsible in a small way for unleashing these clowns on the "community."

I stand wholeheartedly behind my support of President Clinton.

The "clowns" we're on the streets long before Clinton was born. And if you were to extrapolate my support for the president to mean I agree with 100% of the decisions he made, then you are the one who needs educating.

If a vote for a political officeholder means you agree with everything they do, all political offices would be vacant!

It was not any of zimmermans business what he had in his pocket, because he is not the police or have any authority. And he knew he was black because when he called 911 he stated he was black, and right after he followed the kid, after ignoring the order not to which resulted in this horrific ordeal. Not a bash at you maam, just facts relased by police.

And you would probably think it's OK that under Willy the prison poulation doubled. And you probably think it's OK that his pals made 100's of millions in prison Companies too. Republicans view prisons as necessary evils to deter crimes. Democrats view them as a way poor people can make them rich(er).
