Isn't it amazing how this event happened a month ago and the story wasn't newsworthy-enough until the racebaiters got wind of it?

What is even more amazing is that Zimmerman had no lawful right whatsoever to chase Martin. That means he was engaged in a criminal act - chasing a man, armed or otherwise, constitutes assault. Now if you are assaulting someone do you have a right of self defense when your victim resists using his right of self defense? So the armed robber shoots the armed store owner and claims self defense?
There was a clear statement from martin's girlfriend that he was wary of the approaching Zimmerman. Zimmerman confirmed in his call to police that he was pursuing Martin clearly frustrated "they always get away". The next thing you know Zimmerman is screaming and shoots Martin.
If this kid doesn't get justice I hope those similarly at risk of the vigilante take the peace from the officials that have done everything a 1960's klan operation would to avoid prosecuting a lynch mob. Remember guys. It was the cops in this chain of command and the State Attorney that cooked this, not the citizens whose elected representatives voted no confidence in the police leadership.
And yes it does suck that the racial turmoil industry had to be the one to get this out there. The fact that Zimmerman is a soft punk who got his ass beat by a kid he was chasing with a gun doesn't change the fact that he killed Martin after assaulting him and all the bigoted cops and cynical prosecutors in the world aren't going to make that self defense bullshit fly with the whole world looking at it.

Yes it is amazing that it is being used as a political stunt by Obama to get votes on the death of this kid isn't it? He is using this boy as his pawn and everyone is jumping in to help him disrespect him and his death. Sorry SOB !!!!

President Obama was forced to get involved just because he is black. Don't get it twisted. And stop making ignorant comments that are not even true.

And what just exactly did I say that wasn't true? He did not have to get involved because he was black he got involved for votes !!!! That is pretty shitty to use this kid as his pawn to get votes. His parents should be outraged but then I guess they like the publicity and are hoping for a check which is more important than their son's life.You notice they are grieving so much that they went to a rally today to draw attention to themselves. Yes they are really heart broken aren't they.
