The irony is that the white dude probably hated the verdict too. It's DC.

Seeing as how the police made arrests and the suspectswere charged and convicted, Idont really see why its important at all in comparison to the zimmerman case. Had.it not been "for trayvon" it probably would've been because he's "white". No big deal right? It was ok for zimmerman to follow martn because he was "black" right?

I mean, you guys say that some how zimmerman could tell martin was a criminal planning a robbery, just by looking at him.

Why did they beat the man for trayvon anyway? He did a fine job of giving zimmerman the beating of his life.

This man needed an equalizer.There is no irony here! This is the real African American community unmasked! It is the plain truth hitting everyone in their faces! This is just proof that "Stand your Ground Law" is necessary, and also is proof that Zimmerman had a reason to be suspicious and even defend himself. This man that was assaulted was supposed to have a gun, and used it to defend himself against the robbers. That is why a gun is called the equalizer! This is where Stand Your Ground Law is necessary in all states of the union. Black community have to re-think about their behaviors. There is no racial discrimination except theirs. Stand your Ground was passed to protect citizens, precisely, against this type of violence!

You do not get it! This white man, or Asian, or whatever, had nothing to do with Trayvon, and paid the consequences of Black America hateful violence. Black America is violent, hateful and mostly criminal. However, the crime that they do every day is not even discriminatory, they do this even to their own black people. If in any doubt, look at Chicago. Blacks killing blacks for no reason. Zimmerman did wrong to be a trigger happy vigilante, however, the Stand Your Ground Law is necessary in Florida in in all states to protect citizens. The "equalizer" is needed. This is where the right to bear arms is constitutionally and realistically necessary! The man was supposed to answer to the beating taking place with a gun and respond: This is for Zimmerman and for the Stand Your Ground Law!

You can call it racial profiling or stereo typing but the fact is its really street wise blacks are 10 times more likely to commit a violent crime, so it's only smart to watch them closer now sure not all blacks are bad , I have never been in trouble , but Know that people will watch me and even quistion me because of all the black that are no good I can't blame people for that I myself watch blacks closer than anybody , if blacks don't like being watched than they must start being more respectful and stop breaking laws !!! You can't blame racial hate when your the one making the hate

maybe the law but zimmerman had a chance to avoid the situation. That to me is not self defense and if you're gonna play cop it should be by the same rules as we hold officers to so...uh....never mind I guess I don't have a point, cops kill unarmed citizens all the time. Taser people to death for having epilepsy . But now we need to watch out for crazy citizens with guns in plain clothes too? Why not just stick with the boys in blue? At least you know they're supposed to be "peace keepers".
