&#8203;In the midst of the Trayvon Martin controversy, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Beth Bloom has cited Florida's controversial Stand Your Ground law to drop charges against Greyston Garcia after he fatally stabbed a car radio thief in Little Havana on January 25th. Though, Garcia apparently initiated the violence, never called police, hid the knife, and then later sold two of the car radios the man had stolen.

In the early hours of January 25, Garcia spotted Pedro Roteta and another man rummaging through his truck and taking off with his car radio according to the Miami Herald. Roteta and his accomplice had apparently been on a radio stealing spree, and Roteta was carrying a bag filled with three car radios.

Garcia decided to chase after Roteta with a knife, and caught up to him. Roteta swung the bag of radios at Garcia's head. Garcia blocked the bag, and then countered by lunging a knife in Roteta's chest. The stabbing killed Roteta. Garcia then took off with the radio, even those not belonging to him, and never called police. Garcia hid the knife used and sold the two car radios that did not belong to him.

Martin wasn't stealing radios.

Martin was minding his own business and have every right- 100 percent- to be exactly where he was at when the pedophile begain to stalk him.

Martin was not armed.

The pedophile had a deadly weapon and the pedophile jumped Martin.

PS: Garcia 's defense argued SYG. The pedophile's lawyers have already stated there weren't. Their only witness is a liar and unreliable.

Perhaps the drug selling ,drug addicted Tray Gone wanted to brag at his high school fight club how he sucker punched some dude who he had a confrontation with. According to his social media ramblings he was a fan of the mixed martial arts which along with his usage of Lean would explain his propensity foe violence. His cousin implies that Tray Gone punched out a school bus driver.

You can't prove Zimmerman is a pedophile. You can't prove Zimmerman stalked Martin. You can't prove Zimmerman jumped Martin. About the only things you can prove is that you are a flamer with a life long gay fetish and that you are a pro abortionist.

The Democrats of those days are the Republicans of today. You don't know much history do you?
So all those Republicans murdered by the KKK were really closet Democrats?

President Eisenhower signed the GOP's 1960 Civil Rights Act after it survived a five-day, five-hour filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats, and in 1964, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act after former Klansman Robert Byrd's 14-hour filibuster, and the votes of 22 other Senate Democrats, including Tennessee's Al Gore Sr., failed to scuttle the plan. Robert Byrd and Al Gore Sr both died as respected members of the Democratic Party.

The truck was three blocks away.

What can be proved is the pedophile zimmerman was three blocks from where he was told to wait for the cops to arrive, and he someone how found himself blocking the path between the boy he killed and the boy's home.

I've never had an abortion.

I understand: you are the only abortion that you mom had that survived and you miss your little brothers.

Here's what I say: if you don't want an abortion, don't have one.

Strom Thurman conducted the longest filibuster in Senate history.

Dongliqueer.

Funny how you forgot to mention it- guess what he opposed?

Of course, he found he was more welcome by the Republican party and like many segregationists who were in the Democrat party, jumped to the Republican party.

He was a respected member of the Republican party when he died.
