This is not a time of celebration, but a time to thank GOD justice was served. 1.If Zimmerman was a Hyphenated-man, not a creepy ass cracka "White Hispanic" the race card would have never been played and the race pimps would not have swarmed Sanford, the politicians; Angela Corey and ilk, the Mayor,the City Manager, the new police chief all conspired to lynch George Zimmerman so there would never have been charges,no trial nor any threats by the New Hyphenated-Panthers to kill Zimmerman.

2. If the hyphenated-racists seek civil rights charges or sue- a mere civil law suit against George Zimmerman the true history of Trayvon comes out: his thuggery is exposed, his school records,juvie records, drug use, tox results,texting about fighting and guns, those he fought get deposed, the gun photos on his triple password protected phone etc. all come out. SO, ask the family if that is the legacy they want for their son and family. 3. A 17+ year old is not a child. Case in point, Wilfred Benitez won the World Boxing Championship at age 17-anyone think he was a babe in the ring, even at age 15 he'd "ground and pound" 99.9% of the people on the planet and take not one punch while doing it.

Creepy Murderer Zimmermurderer can't stay in hiding forever. He will have to face society. Society won't be nice to him, but it will be far nicer than when he will have to face True Justice.
That's right, to the racists on here who clamor for a not guilty verdict from man's justice, know that True Justice doesn't depend on juries or verdicts. True Justice doesn't depend on courts and prisons. True Justice doesn't depend on law enforcement, parole, probation, plea agreements or depositions.
True Justice walks hand in hand with Truth and Character and Integrity. True Justice wades on the Shores of Righteousness. True Justice awakens to the Sunshine of Goodness and Mercy. True Justice eschews evil and evildoers.
That same True Justice will knock on the doors of Creepy Zimmermurderer. The creep MUST answer. There will be no hiding place, no security that he fleeces from paying, no internet defense funds to swindle people out of their money, no "pro bono" lawyers to hide behind.
NO, Creepy Zimmermurderer, you MUST answer to True Justice. You will answer in the same way all the other non-convicted murderers of children will answer.
When True Justice casts her shadow upon you, you will know what way that is.
Until then, don't let the stress keep you ballooning!
Stop whining ,Cristo. 18 months of posting bullsh*t and your boy Trayvon is still dead. Now that Zimmerman is free you should feel ashamed that you persecuted an innocent man.) years in prison and Trayvon is a pile of ashes because his parents were too cheap to give the thug a decent burial

Hyphenated-Racists and guilty creepy ass crackas who seek civil rights or a civil suit, be careful for what you wish for:Trayvon has a nasty lil past for a mere 'babe' and the family does not want the real thug/criminal Trayvon exposed.

Unhyphenated Americans have put the negro's KoolAid down and have re-awakened to the true reality as the false messiah at 1600 Penn has been exposed as a fraud, amateur and socialist and incompetent.

Guilty or not guilty, I was not on the jury so I can't pass judgement on that. What really bothered mr was the crick fiction of TM by the defense, social media and FOX news. I heard so much about this child's "history". I do not care about his petty childish and at the most misdemeanor offenses. How can anybody dare call what he had done at the ripe old age of 17 history'? In the course of a average lifetime the minor offenses he accrued were but a blip, a fraction of his life. Being 55 years old and a white man I personally committed much more heinous offenses at that age and even worse when I was older. Biggest difference was my race and financial status in the community. I will attest to the fact that eve caught red handed on numerous occasions that due to money and status that I was never disciplined for my transgressions and that only led me to be bolder and more heinous in my ever increasing criminal activities. My life changed when friends started dying at too young of an age. I do not attest this to any born again moment as God and I have had an on again off again relationship for years. All I know is that this should never have happened, GZ will get rich due to salvitating dogs at FOX news and that should not be, he should carry on with his life and be grateful he was not convicted. But alas this is not how it will happen, he will prosper from this young mans death and unfortunately Florida, I have no love for this state, will pay the price, many more people will be killed and maimed due to this verdict. GZ should have gone to court and been the man he claims to be and pled guilty to a lesser charge and spared many the outrages that sadly will ensue from this verdict. The prosecution was a joke but not unexpected in Fla.
You have a lot of guilt and self loathing built up inside. You should turn yourself in to the authorities and confess to your crimes. Then you should ask to be put into a mental institution because you're obviously crazy.

I think this Zimmerman verdict is a result of the prosecution not proving its case, if there was anything to prove. I still do not have an opinion as to what happened because I don't have enough facts or proof of either story and that really bothers me. On the other hand, I would never want anyone innocent to be found guilty by mistake, so I think the system has to work this way. I am very conflicted about this whole case.
Angela Corey falsified facts, contained within George Zimmerman's arrest warrant....She kept it away from a already available Grand Jury, due to it's emptiness of cause.....My state just spent millions, because both lamestream media and outside racial/political pressure....Watching her fat Puss, on TV, lastnight was hurl inducing....lol....Have a Nice Day.....

The Negro Community is not happy with the verdict and that is fne. Now they should all go home and build on this by bringing hope and peace to their communities. They can do this by being more responsible in their actions. Breeding like Rats and spreading ruin and disease to society seems to be what the Negro does best. The Negro should give up his criminal ways and join the majority of good hard working White People in America. White People only see a Negro by the Actions of the Negro. We can over look the fact they cannot speak well and they stink like Hell,,no Problem with that,,,,it is their criminal actions and their incessant whining. Negro stop demanding everything,,,contribute somthing to society.
Black women need to follow the path of these black mothers.

ATHENS, Ga.-- Athens-Clarke County Police have arrested the mother of a newborn baby boy killed Thursday in Athens mom accused of stabbing son 100 times.

According to Assistant Chief of Police Fred Stephens, 21-year-old Cassandra Elyse Norwood was charged with murder and booked into the Athens-Clarke County jail Friday morning. They issued the arrest warrant Thursday night after interviews with family members.

Black Woman Kills Her Own Children,
PORT ST. JOHN, Fla.— In the middle of the night, Tonya Thomas’ neighbors awoke to the sound of a gunshot and moments later heard a knock on their door.

Three of Thomas’ four children were outside, including one who appeared to have been shot. Before the neighbors could offer help, Thomas came out of her house and called the children back home.

They complied. The neighbors dialed 911 after hearing more gunshots.

Black women kills her kids,

Another tragedy struck earlier this week when a Black woman suffocated her own children in a car before submerging the vehicle into the water. The horrendous crime took place in South Carolina.

Shaquan Duley, 29, admitted her actions to police, explaining that she is unemployed and tired of hearing her mother’s criticism.

She suffocated her two toddler boys with her bare hands and strapped them in their car seats, then pushed her car into the river. Her sons were 1 and 2.

“She was a mother that was unemployed. She had no means of taking care of her children,” Orangeburg County Sheriff Larry Williams told reporters.

It's all pure bullshit, the press knows it and all the talking heads know it. The worthless teenage thug wasn't worth two bit on the world scene. Child my ass, he was a wantabe thug that at last got what he really deserved. But Mom and dear old Dad are the real piss poor winners here. They had no control over the brat, maybe they didn't think he was important or they were too busy having a good time doing what most adults do, making sure they were OK. All of these reporters that are crying that a child is dead, had better wake up to the fact that it could have been them, except that they would never live in an area like that, they think that they are higher on the food chain. OH let not forget the white liberal socialist fools that are shouting for revenge, I'm sorry justice.
