Sad but true. There are exceptions. Zimmerman will have a trial thanks to the people who do care.

Why don't you get your story straight? You're walking home from the store and a neighbor spots you and makes a phone call. You run from him and hide behind some houses until the opportunity for attack comes along. He hangs up the phone, and starts walking to where he last seen you not suspecting you are still there. You viciously attack him and he continually screams for help. The louder he screams, the more you enjoy it and the harder you hit. Finally he pulls out a gun to blow your dirt-bag azz away, and because of national media, he ends up facing a murder charge.

Yes, unfortunately, inequality permeates throughout many facets of society.
It is systemic and it is broad. Even though there are many laws in place in housing, banking, employment, etc, there are many barriers that prevent many from the even playing field that others enjoy.
We did break down those barriers a couple of years ago. It led to the worst financial collapse in our lifetime called the housing market. We still suffer the effects of it today and probably will for several years (at least four more) to come.

"The encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was ultimately avoidable by Zimmerman if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement or conversely if he had identified himself to Martin as a concerned citizen and initiated dialog (sic) in an effort to dispel each party's concern. There is no indication that Trayvon Martin was involved in any criminal activity at the time of the encounter."
This is something the prosecution will focus on.
Had Zimmerman stayed in his vehicle, the whole incident could have been avoided. Especially the murder.
On that line of thinking, if Martin just went to the house he was staying at, he would be alive today. But no. He had to seek revenge. He had to wait for Zim behind the houses for a planned attack.

I'm pretty sure this case won't hinge on your perspective of the evidence.
Your "if's" also won't be making it into the evidence.
You forget something, as well...
Special Prosecutor Angela Corey did her own investigation with her own investigators. She charged the Thug with second degree murder.
Don't you remember that? I do.
The Sanford Police Department was (and is) fraught with problems. Has been for many, many years.
Nevertheless, they didn't interfere with special Prosecutor Angela Corey doing the right thing.
Team Thug Zimmerman and his supporters can use all the diversion tactics they want. But they cannot take away the fact that a child who was minding his own business was chased down by a lunatic with a loaded gun and killed by the lunatic.
You ever ask yourself what kind of a person grabs his loaded gun and goes after a child who was minding his own business? Does that give you ANY kind of pause whatsoever?
Think about it.
I've paused quite a bit; especially when I learned Martin hid behind the houses instead of going home. It's obvious what his plans were.

And here we go again with this fallacy of chasing Martin down. He ran after Martin for about ten seconds and stopped. He stayed on the phone with 911 giving Martin enough time to crawl home if he desired. He never "chased" Martin down. He didn't have the physical ability. That's one of your many "if's."

It's more likely Martin didn't continue to his dad's girlfriend's house because he was being chased by a strange man at night. Everyone that teaches self defense, everyone that teaches kids about 'stranger danger' and what to do if you think you're being followed, teaches them NOT to lead the stranger to your house. Get away, get to safety, but do not lead them to your home.

What or who teaches that? Are you insane?

You mean to tell me that "somebody" or some people are teaching kids that if they are followed, not to seek shelter in their very own home and call police? WTF teaches that? Who teaches children to run in the open where they are vulnerable instead of going home or seeking shelter when away from home?

Show me one legitimate course or school that tells kids to stay away from their home when they suspect trouble.

Yes completely true, all of it.

Poor Trayvon must have thought a pervert was trying to kidnap him.

When Zimmerman accosted him he was defending himself and was murdered.

WRONG, no such barriers were broken down. You sound just like those other Idiots who say that racism doesn't exist anymore because we have a Black President.

You are either truly ignorant of the reasons for those laws or you deliberately blame those who are continually mistreated for being the reason for an historic economic collapse.

I believe it's the latter. The same thing happens during presidential campaigns. Repugnants use minorities to whip up a frenzy in order to get as many votes as possible.

According to the Repugnants running for president, if you lost or don't have a job, blame minorities; if you can't get a loan, blame minorities; the national deficit is because of minorities; let's blame minorities for whatever ails you.

Now you come along and have the nerve to blame minorities for the financial and housing collapse specifically and the economic downturn broadly.

YOU ARE OUTTA YOUR SICK GOD-FORSAKEN MIND.

Let me remind you that people of MANY races and ethnicities participated in the housing collapse. And yet, it's not even them who made the rules or laws; it's not even them who made the loans, you big dummy!

Tell me this...How do you explain that in a city where Blacks make up less than 3% of the population, there are thousands of foreclosures and thousands of underwater mortgages?

Since your mind is on vacation, I'll just go ahead and tell you that those foreclosures and underwater mortgages mirror the rate of the population in that particular city.

You're so hell-bent on unloading on a particular race of people that Truth and Facts and Common Sense flees from you.

I can't blame them.

That is YOU saying that happened.

You have absolutely NO proof that happened. I'm not asking you for proof because it doesn't exist. If it did, you need to contact "pro bono" O'Mara.

Such info does very little good on Topix. But Thug Zimmerman would be much appreciative and may mention your name in his upcoming Letter from a Florida Prison Cell.
