You are dead from the neck up. Maybe someone will finish the job.

They are not smart enough to understand that........

They will come. Heck the case hasn't been over that long. The movies and books will come after he collects on the civil suits. Don't worry about old George he will be wealthy.

It was in self-defense? Why didn't Martin's autopsy show that?

OJ was acquitted because cops tampered with evidence and perjured themselves during the trial.
That trial could have went flawless with a video of OJ killing those people and the jury still would have found him not guilty. Just like if we had a video of Martin attacking Zimmerman, you would still be calling him a murderer.

OJ is innocent.

Why?

Because OJ is black.

Zimmerman is a murderer.

Why?

Because Martin was black.

When he made that announcement, it took me by surprise; not because he wouldn't play Florida anymore, but because he was still playing. Who knew?

Looks like Stevie is blind in more ways than one. To be that pompous to believe that your lack of entertainment is punishment enough for a state to change major legislation is beyond reality.

Our state is now considering a SYG law. I hope Stevie stays the hell out of Ohio too.

Yes, there was a thug involved and it seemed to most of us that the thug's name began with a Zeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
what does 17 have to do with anything, just because you are not yet 18 give you no right nor priviledge to effect any crime against any person, those that think like you need to find another place to live well away from the civilized

Anybody reading this story has to be horrified. Two gangbangers have a dispute. A baby is murdered. Father claims that he is above all else a gangbanger, but he was always with his son. The killer has a criminal record.

That is the ultimate example of the thug culture. I challenge anybody to come to the defense of these two or to deny that this stupidly is not the norm in many of our cities. We must do something about this culture of death and crime, and this is important....waste of talent and potential of inner-city youth.

The sad part is that this little boy would have likely ended up as a gangbanger himself who would either be killed, kill, or spend much of his life in jail. What a waste of human potential.

You have a better chance at improving the relationship between the Palestinians and the Jews.
I've said it repeatedly "People of different races can live together peacefully, but people of different cultures can't."
Most blacks are a completely different culture than most whites. The only true solution is separatism. That sends a lot of people running to the door screaming, but it's the truth.
Race baiters say the problem is skin deep. I say the problem is beyond skin color. Most blacks are not going to change to get along with whites and most whites are not going to change to get along with blacks.
There are millions of American blacks who have the same outlook on life and culture as all other Americans..love of family, ambition, and respect for themselves and others. It is the inner-city where welfare, lack of educational opportunities or complete disrespect for education, drugs, gangs, and crime are the hallmarks of culture.

We cannot group all blacks into the inner-city thug culture any more than we could have linked all southern whites to the KKK or George Wallace 50 years ago.

Well Gramps it all depends on how you look at it. If the little critter was a tad older he would be bragging about what a pro bum and perp his father is. And getting him to that age would've cost us thousands of dollars. Best take em out young or better yet in the womb. The article stinks of pity especially with the pic of the little dead one. Ever noticed how everybody likes a puppy? The Afrfikans tried comically to make TrayBgone look sweet and innocent. Heres their posterboi and they cant pull any pity and crate any uproar because he was doused by one of his own. Im just pissed that the shooter didn't get the gangbanging father too! Actually the only potential lost is in terms of daisy fertilizer. But as the Afrikans thin their own we can expect it to even out down the road. I imagine they've popped a couple full grow bucks in Destroit or Chicongo while I type! Now that's the kind of black power I love! Saturday Night Specials and coathangers for all blacks! Line forms next to the coroners office hahaha!

Lets not go overboard with all due respect gramps! Ok ok Ill go with million(>s) considering an overall of roughly 30 million lets say 10% are accountable and law abidinf citizens. Thow in another 10% that has potential and we have 6 million. BUT going a damn percentage point more I would challenge you. In any terms its the bad apple syndrome and the barrel is contaminated. Ruined for all practical purposes. Make way for fresh produce.

Even though you were not there, you are positive that Zeeeeeeeeeeee was the culprit. Other people who were not there are equally positive that Martin was the aggressor. The truth is that we don't know. I highly suspect that all sides are relying on their personal racial hostility to make up their minds.

We have been duped by the press. IMO the press got what it wanted: a lot of TV viewing, and separation and anger between the races.

There are Trayvons dying every day. Most are killed by other blacks. A check of Trayvon's past indicate that he was in danger of being engulfed by the thug culture. Trayvon's death could shine a light into the plight of the inner-city. It is too bad that it has not. Meanwhile the killing continues..........
