Zimmerman not guilty. Now lets talk about the real problem. Black on black murder. In Obama's home town of Chicago.....hundreds murdered over the 4th of July weekend. And the president is silent on this but put his two cents into the Sanford case. Why? I guess Obama has a race card in his pocket too. Black on black murder dont fit his agenda does it.
The problem in Shitcago is the police will not patrol the dark parts of town. Both New York City and Washington DC have significantly reduced violent crimes in their dark areas of town by forcing the police to patrol those areas. Why Shitcago will not do this is beyond me.
But then again, NYC and Wash. DC do not waterboard black suspects either.

He evidently chooses blacks over Latinos. With friends like Obama, who needs enemies?

The whole scheme for money and money alone is thoroughly documented at the following link. It was never about conviction for the racist lawyers and fake preachers; it was only about arrest in order to reap monetary gain through harassment and legal standing under Florida Statutes. It's intricate, but the felonious and libelous conspiracy is uncovered and will be won in civil court. Obama was even part of the conspiracy.

Here's the well documented exposure of the crimes committed against Zimmerman and the State of Florida. This is the whole page, so scroll back up to the top...

Yes, racial bigotry did play a role in this tragedy but it was Trayvon's bigotry and not Zimmerman's.

I will ask you the same question I have been asking the other Libtards, "What crime did George Zimmerman commit"! What evidence do you have that GZ stalked him,harassed him or threatened him? NONE!!!
Oh, black people in Florida have used our SYG law and some won their cases based on SYG so stop the RACE BAITING!!!

The premise here, that Stand Your Ground played a part, is symptomatic of the a serious issue,and thats just how messed up most of the media is. How many times does the defense have to announce, point out, delare, testify, and explain that this was a self defense case??????? And people still don't understand. Why? Because MSNBC and CNN and HLN won't tell you, thats why. And oh by the way, the question has been asked.....why didn't the prosecution use a Stand Your Ground defense for Martin's behavior? A stretch perhaps, but at least an argument based in law that might have tenede to provide him with a basis for his attack. Might have pitted self defense laws against SYG law.

Dearie that creepy cracker was following Mr. Martin. Zimmerman should have stayed in the car and kept his gun in his holster.

Dearie we white crackers should care when "something happens" (now, come on folks, call it "killing") to an innocent man on our streets.

And we do not have to be white, yellow, pink, green or blue.

You guys use the race card as you continue to play your childish snap racist card games.

waiting for rev. Al to show in in mabelton, Ga.:

"36 year old Joshua Chellew gave a ride to a 19 year old female friend to a Chevron on Mableton Parkway.

When he was walking out of the store, witnesses told police four black teens jumped on him and began beating and kicking him and within two minutes he was shoved backwards onto the five lane road, pushed to the ground and knocked unconscious.

A passing car hit and killed him."

Only problem is the shooting death of Trayvon Martin had nothing to do with the Stand Your Ground Law. The previous law required one to retreat, if possible, but how does one retreat when laying flat on your back. Mark O'Mara said it was a strictly self defense case and Zimmerman was protected by the law even if Stand Your Ground was never passed by the Florida legislature.It is not like Florida invented the concept.


Below is a section of the California criminal code that is about one hundred years old.

"The defendant] is entitled to stand his or her ground and defend himself or herself, and, if reasonably necessary, to pursue an assailant until the danger of death or great bodily injury has passed. This is so even if safety could have been achieved by retreating."

I agree - Thankfully the jury did the right thing despite all that the media, the Judge, the Al
(scum of the earth) Sharptons etc.

It is amazing that the Sharpton's of the world including Maobama can't say a word about Black
on Black crime and killings in Chicago but then can certainly say something about this case.

Why is it that the Media calls a half White - half Black President "the first Black President but in
Zimmermans case they say a self described Hipanic
or even worse a White Hispanic?

Sorry this tragedy had to happen for all parties but the NAACP and the rest of the creeps that walk in their world are now screaming for DOJ to step in and investigate despite a FBI probe that was already done which found nothing of the sort.

Why did the media continue to show a innocent 12 year old picture when they had more up to date pics available on Facebook etc? Of course, they
also showed a pic of Zimmerman to reflect racist "white" guy.

Amazing!

Of course his attorney likens this to the worst cases on record of racial hatred - when it is nothing of the sort - again just another play by
a "racist lawyer" to portray the system as racist.

A big win the oil companies now it has been legally confirmed that you can be shot to death now in the US for travelling down the street without using a motor vehicle.

I wonder if this means Americans will get even fatter.

Utter nonsense. Stand your ground is good law.

Zimmerman was the aggressor. He was following and harrassing Martin. If Trayvon had responded aggressively to this "crazy ass hispanic" he would have been within his rights.

ICE should check on Zimmerman's immigration status. Did he have his green card on him at the time?

I am deeply insulted.

We Florida crackers do not claim brown Inca looking hispanics as one of us. He is more of a pc protected minority type.

Also he is a community organizer. The reason I would only live in an older traditional neighborhood with no association. When community organizers get involved in something innocent people die. Who needs self appointed neighborhood nazis?

Yeah, BP. The company demonised by the US because they took responsibility for any possible oil spill but were stupid enough to use US contractors.

All of this of course is because Americans tend to be really dumb and they didn't realise that BP stands for beyond petroleum and is a half American company.
