Florida has limited prosecutorial misconduct conduct exemptions . Personally, I hope Zimmerman sues the shit out of the state of Fla. for malicious prosecution and he names her personally in the lawsuit.

You're spot on the verdict means nothing to these bottom feeder's!!!
Looting is what these folk's look forward too.How many people will die?? Remember OJ Simpson, was found innocent and the animals still were rioting,so no matter the verdict these bottom feeder's will riot,more coverage for the asshat media.
Be ready people!!! Keep your guns on your hips."Stand Your Ground!!!
I remember SMH and thinking " Jury Nullification " These animals will riot at the drop of a hat. Hell major league teams can't even win a championship without looting and rioting. Now these losers want to try him again on civil rights charges LOL what a circus. Zimmerman will get his gun back a least.

Civil rights charges have never been brought against a private individual in a self defense shooting to the best of my knowledge

NO, she probably won't until there is a chance the ATM days are over. She sort of pretended ,but no real tears, Do you find it odd she could sit there stoically day after day ,then not show up for the verdict?

The Prosecution team Ms Cory is so proud of can all be disbarred for withholding pertinent information from the Defense. Zimmerman can sue them for much money as well. O'Mara is going to be a busy guy, and loving it.

I find her extremely odd for a number of reasons. First and foremost, allowing her child to be raised by other people for the vast majority of his life. Second, for viewing his corpse as an ATM. Third, for being able to listen to the sound of the gunshot that ended his life without even flinching. THAT is completely beyond me. How could any mother actually hear the sound that ended her son's life without so much as a flinch, and I don't care how many times she'd heard it. And yes, the no-show of the Martin/Fulton clan at the verdict is odd. These are some strange people.

Well yea, we need "conduct exemptions" when it comes to prosecuting assaults against negros. We all know they are well documented scientifically, biologically, and socially to be violent creatures. Great leeway should be given to those that come into contact with them.

"Racist" and "racism" is a political pejorative of no fixed or defined meaning. What may be "racism" today may have been entirely differently defined yesterday, and may be yet again have a different meaning tomorrow. As commonly used, the purpose is to end political debate without requiring the user to answer objections that do not fit the users' political agenda. The political objective is to move the debate ever leftward.

Misconduct against every one that is falsely prosecuted ,negroes included. Look at how that woman was given 20 years for going to her vehicle , retrieving a weapon and firing into a the ceiling of a trailer . The law was there for the sentence, but common sense dictates she should have been given a much more lenient sentence.

Why are the minorities not concentrating their efforts on this rather than getting all ginned up over a ghetto thug getting wasted

Very good Mr. Ronald. True, many definitions come full circle (John Locke and "liberalism") and I expect racists and racism will be considered enlightened thinking in the near future. It common sense, an awareness of reality. Strife and conflict in our legal system continues to occur because we keep trying to measure apples and oranges as the same same and white peoples seem to be the biggest validators of this false paradigm? It's lunacy.

Because this is all about attemting to validate the negro as an equal and sanctioned being in a world that biologically, genetically, and socially has been proven to be variably and significantly different. Keeping everyone talking legal points when the outcome is not what's important. It's that everyone believes and falsely affirms negros the sympathy of equal rights and protections. It's indoctrination of an illegitimate comparison. We really need to re consider our civil rights laws?

It takes a person with intellect to understand that Zimmerman was defending himself. I feel so sorry for these people who cannot understand that. Maybe they will never be in a situation where they will have to defend themselves, because according to them they should just lay back and take the beating until they die. IT WAS NOT ABOUT RACE INSIDE THE COURTROOM!

What gives? Blacks (or browns) can use the "n" word and the other blacks look over it. But someone uses "punk" (which fit Martin) and the world looks over it. Who was the racist here??? If you answer truthfully (and I said truthfully) it was Martin who used a racial slur. My mom always said "look at the person saying the word", so I do. It was Martin using the racial slur. It was Martin who was the racist and it was his friend (also black) who delivered that message. So are you Martin-supporters saying one of color was lying when she said it? Ask yourself.

According to most fights it takes two people. Name one thing other than pull the trigger that George did to defend himself?

only black people can be 'racists' (sometimes liberals) if you're a right wing pinhead programmed by the neonazi right...it stands to reason
