The Martin Luther King Jr family has provided another name to the Zimmerman story. This one can help the 'star witness' get a reality show.

Jury of your peers. You mean to tell me, in a pool of jurors in Sanford Florida, that's your jury selection?

Well. Ok. The jury has spoken. Zimmerman is "free". Got his got gun back, free to serve and protect the Sanford residence against the tyranny of young black kids with skittles and iced tea.

God Bless America.

<quoted text>well, obviously they know enough to NOT BE FOOLED in to thinking a poor little innocent boy on his way to the store to buy some skittles did nothing wrong. They knew enough to realize that a person was getting his head bashed on the sidewalk and knew if he didn't do something he would be the one dead.
He was what?

Zimmerman would have never pursued Martin without that gun. Fact.

Your bullshit theory is weak and racist. Trayvon already had the skittles and tea before Zimmerman stopped him from walking. Did you see the trial or are you just a fkn 2 cents idiot?

Quiet down, princess.

There is no way a neighborhood watchman with 2 arrests should be set free for murder...If Trayvon shot George, we would not be having this discussion.

sorry, I didn't see the trial. I actually have a job and work for a living, and pay taxes that support others so they can sit around and drink beer and watch tv all day long. So I guess I am a 2 cent idiot. I have to catch up on news when I get in from work. But I can still piece together what happens in the world. I still know all the problems of the black man are due to the white man holding him down.

I did not watch the trial ,but I did go too.YouTube and watch the videos of Rachel Jeantel testifying on the stand.... I was embarrassed for her to say the least.

(and I heard)She is an embarrassment to those AA who have managed to succeed in spite of the white man keeping them down(with various social programs,public school system,etc.)
with that said, we all encounter obstacles in our way, but that does not mean you sit idle,do nothing and accept it.
I always say.... get your fatAzz up,get out there and do better. Doors always open when you "act" and are determined.

In your fantasy theory, does George use a racial epithet to describe Trayvon before bashing his head on the concrete?

I honestly believed that Zimmerman's lawyers screwed the pooch be allowing six women to be elected for the jury. Who would have thought that Florida prosecutors wouldn't know how to play the dead son offence.
I guess facts do sometimes override liberal, kneejerk, politically correct BS sometimes.

Stop with the six woman jury, it was a weak case, no evidence to the contrary. The prosecuting attorney was the real weak link if you need a scape goat.
