And don't forget Jesse Jackson who originally claimed that Martin was shot in the back of the head execution style.
I hadn't read that but I do know that he was clueless as to the details when he came to Central Florida with Sharpton to attend a rally during late March 2012, the 26th iirc, one month after the shooting.

Huh? It's okay for you to jump on the soapbox but it's not when your black?!
Sure they do but they also need to be responsible for their criminal actions like whites do. Why should we feel sorry because a life long thug gets what they deserve? Rodney King was nothing more than a useless piece of crap breathing up someones good air. Do you see me crying over a white piece of crap with a long history of being a thug? I could not care less. Casey Anthony walked and I believe they should have burned her at the stake. You on the other hand want blacks to have a free pass when they have no regard for others. You knew OJ was headed for jail sooner or later, you could not protect him from himself forever. Trayvon had a bullet with his name on it no matter how hard you scream he was a little angle. Each of these were the subject of blacks trying to keep the race card alive and each was a total failure. All you have done so far is provide the Klan with justification for what they preach.

The Zimmerman-Martin case would have become high profile with or without Sharpton and the three NBP's who traveled from elsewhere.
Oh get real. He had a rap sheet a mile long. He should have already been in prison but the race card kept getting him out. Sharpton, Jackson, NBP, NBC, all made a racial case of Trayvon by lies and false claims. You bought it and defend it which makes you a guilty as they are. Cases like this happen on a daily bases but untill some racebaiter starts lies for those like you to swallow they are treated like they should, based on real facts. The Guardian Angles nation wide do the EXACT same thing George was doing but those like you have tried to take them on but failed miserably. In fact the Guardian Angles take down the thugs with a citizens arrest then hand them to the cops when they are finished with them.

The Guardian Angels is a non-profit international volunteer organization of citizen crime patrollers. The Guardian Angels organization was founded February 13, 1979 in New York City by Curtis Sliwa and has chapters in 15 countries and 144 cities around the world.

Sliwa originally created the organization to combat widespread violence and crime on the New York City Subways. The organization originally trained members to make citizenís arrests for violent crimes. The organization patrols the streets and neighborhoods but also provides education programs and workshops for schools and businesses.

Guardian Angle members are paired up and follow the directions of a Patrol Leader. If their own or other citizens' lives or health are endangered, they are allowed to do whatever is lawful and necessary.

The Reality

Every day, we receive calls and letters from individuals pleading for help to overcome violence in their worlds. These calls only confirm the increases in violence, harassment, and intimidation reported daily in newspapers and research surveys. Bullies, predators, and gangs, in increasing numbers, are creating fear and danger in our communities. The perpetrators lurk in schools, neighborhoods, streets, subways and the Internet. Active sense 1979.

O'Mara is now making a VERY strong argument that this case be thrown out now before it even gets to the jury. I don't think this judge has the courage to do it, but if she does, I hope she waits until Monday to do it. If she did it now, during the holiday weekend, it's going to be a very long, hard weekend for cops and citizens across the country. It would be enough for me to take my gun out of the trunk and actually carry on my person because there will be black people attacking white people indiscriminately.
But you can relax. She doesn't have the guts. The trial will go on in front of the jury
LOL, Opie is getting his azz kicked.

George's lies are going to be his downfall.

He needed a lawyer from the get go, any lawyer. Someone to shut him up.

Judge rules that the case is going to the jury.

You must be Tea Party

Racism is not illegal. If it was we would all be in jail including the cops. Acting on that racism to infringe on someones rights is illegal. I don't like a lot of things said on here buy I do believe in free speech. I would prefer people stick to the facts instead of just making up lies to defend their racism. Slavery has been over for a long long time, blacks now put themselves in their own situations with no excuse anymore. The black community idolizes thugs, gangstas, men who knock up women then leave them to raise the children alone, drug dealers, ect. ect. Even J Jackson (a Reverend) has children by extra marital affair, stealing money from the church and he is a black hero. If your black and want respect the earn it like everyone else. Stop causing or supporting the actions that make your race look like thugs and criminals.

There will not be a race war. Most blacks support Trayvon because it's the black thing to do but in reality even they know he was a thug and if they had been George they would have done the same thing. Supporting the black agenda is one thing but very very few would put their lives one the line for this issue. Trayvon was a thug pure and simple and even most in the black community admit they would not want him living near them. Get with reality, the race card is dead, to keep trying to use it just makes you look like a fool.

I was was explained to me one time by a man with three "outside children"monogamy is a European concept, so why are you trying to impose your culture on someone else?
That's racism
Up to 80% of black kids are in single parent families. The social net is paid by the taxpayer. What can be said is that people who are irresponsible are imposing their culture or way of life on peoples wallets. The social net is massive and corrupted in both the private and public ways of spending. It was held in check as the baby boomers were in their prime paying for it all. But they are are starting to retire themselves and are not going to do that well as government is stealing any of their meager savings and pay downs of debt were for nothing. Twice as many boomers as current retirees and probably three to four times more revenue needed to pay for them then today's retirees. Something has to give at some point.

Racism has been a consistent thread weaving through the American intolerant Right-wing, from the early days when Anti-Federalists battled against the U.S. Constitution to the present when a hysterical Tea Party denounced the first African-American president.

Why did Bush give the working schmucks tax cuts and rebates over several years to all and this scum bag of the people nothing? Taking care the half population that he voted for him? It is not complicated. He is a progressive NEO CON war monger. He pretends to be anti Israel but is not. He straddles the line as he recognizes others who are Islamic but somehow leaders are being thrown left and right over there. As long as he follows the plan he will be president and do much of wha the likes domestically.
