It has been a long time from the days of the planation but certain black leaders use it as an excuse for everything from black incarceration to broken Slurpee machines.
On my home front all I can say to the brothers is bring it on.
team win, urban people happy. celebrate by burn car of other people yes? break window when team win yes? take ipod when team win yes? take store things when team win yes?

when team lose, urban people mad yes? break things burn things steal things kill things yes?

hard tell when urban people happy or mad yes?

"Lied" about what exactly? 1) Her age because she did not want her name released publicly. 2) the reason she did not attend Martins funeral, because she did not want to see his body. Both immaterial facts, which she has given thorough reasoning.
She first admitted that Trayvon [on the phone at the time] called Zimmerman a "creepy *ss cr***a," yet when the lawyer brought it up again, later on, she stumbled for roughly 10+ seconds and then say she didn't recall (another blatant lie!).

She's deceptive now that she realizes the *truth* is helping Zimmermans' case all the more.

I wonder what else she's withholding to not make Trayvon look even more guilty than he does already.

Trayvon is now the clear racist, whereas Zimmerman was called the "racist" many months ago.

The more details come out, the more innocent Zimmerman looks on multiple accounts.

Zimmerman should've never been arrested; Zimmerman should've never been put on trial.

This is beyond pathetic and disgusting. The [criminal] State prosecution has no PROOF that Zimmerman fired NOT in self-defense.

CLEAR EVIDENCE points to Zimmerman sustaining semi-serious physical damage to his face and head that night, thus being the one justified in shooting.

Case should be dropped, ASAP.

But this is not about "justice" - it's about criminals secretly within the system attempting to use this as an example to lead the dimwitted sheeple in a certain direction of thought.

Typical of what? You're the one who strays off topic to bullcht about his personal life. Refute what?

Maybe we'll start hearing from the investigators later today or sometime tomorrow.

That's not what I recall because it's bullcht.

The state is beginning to call the SPD officers now, so maybe now you'll learn why the police chief got broomed and the states attorney office was replaced.

George was referring to the deceased as "the suspect" throughout his original statement. Profiling?

You still a joke. The states own witnesses can't tell the same story. Half even bolster Georges story. The state has provided reasonable doubt. The defense at this point is letting the state screw their own case. Yes let these officers tell of the threats to charge George or lose their jobs. Yes let them tell how the state bypassed the local law enforcement and even cost some their career over a case that don't exist. Some of them after this trial my want to file a wrongful termination suit themselves. Profiling? Yes Trayvon was seen "casing" the neighborhood, looking in windows and cars while high on drugs. Trayvon (the racist) saw an easy white target and attacked hoping to bolster his "rep." and gain a few extra dollars but picked an armed victim. Face it, there was a bullet with that boys name on it somewhere. If not that night it would have been soon. His "gangsta" crime spree cut short. A good start.

And Trayvon called Zimmerman a "cr***a" - therefore he was 'racial profiling' Zimmerman; thus evidence toward a probable fuel behind Trayvon then performing a racially motivated 'hate-crime'-based physical assault on Zimmerman soon afterward.

Zimmerman did call the police long before any confrontation happened; Zimmerman was therefore not afraid of an 'outside mediator' getting involved with what he say. Zimmerman was not planning on committing a crime that night. Why didn't *Trayvon* then call the police? Was *he* scared of an outside mediator viewing what *he* was about to do?

Why didn't "Dee Dee" dial 911 before or especially after Trayvons phone went dead? Did she know (by Trayvon saying so?) that Trayvon was about to do something illegal, like "beat that cr***a's *ss"?

Hmmmmmmmm... we'll never know now, seeing as how deceptive, "star witless" Dee Dee has shown clear signs of holding back now; recanting her first admission of Trayvon saying "cr***a" to begin with! Oops!

Zimmerman saw a suspicious-looking person walking at night, in the middle of heavy rain downpour, of whom Zimmerman has never seen before in the ***gated community*** which Zimmerman lives; a person of whom ran away from Zimmerman while seeing Zimmerman on the phone, in a neighborhood which has had *multiple break-in's* over the past few years, and one only having a criminal being arrested a few weeks before this night.

Who in their right mind would *not* call him a "suspect", genius? You would too, if you saw him and knew everything that Zimmerman knew. So would any police officer. Don't bother denying it, simply because we now know what the facts are. At that time, you'd be singing a different tune, indeed.

"Suspect" and "criminal" are two different things.

Go watch the trial and you'll learn that the SPD once again chose sides before it had any details.

I'll bet that George will walk free, turn it around and sue, then someone will either write a book or make a movie about the whole ordeal. He will make a lot of money.

What is it exactly that compels you to, so desperately, cling to this Zimmerman character, a ‘would be’ policeman and an armed disaster waiting to happen – and it did!!

Serino agreed that Zimmerman had been open with police. Singleton said she had no evidence that Zimmerman had any ill will, anger or hatred for the teen— terms that would be crucial for the prosecution to get a second-degree murder conviction. To bad your racism has clouded your mind and you can't see facts. I wonder how you react when you meet a young black man dressed like a thug on a dark night alone. How about if you see him hanging out close to your home. No need to answer, you have lied enough.

Citizen tired of thugs overrunning the neighborhood. Citizen tired of thugs getting a free pass after violating those who try to make something of themselves. Trayvon was a cancer spreading to yet another neighborhood of what he thought was helpless victims. We have a cure for thugs. The "helpless victims" are arming themselves at record rates. Gun ownership has skyrocketed. This case will kill the expectation of safety in the thug line of work. Hiding behind the race card is dead. Your attempt to somehow justify the thug lifestyle has failed. Look around you, face facts, the free ride is coming to an end.

the gun laws worked perfectly. A legal licensed concealed carry holder defended himself against a punk who didn't like to be watched as he cases apartments for future burglaries evidenced by prior acts of being caught with burglary tools in his possession (which conveniently the liberal judge refused to be brought in as evidence).

Fact is you can't back up your outrageous racist statement. You personify what is wrong with this country with your hateful and racist mindset!
