Now a black leader is on television saying Trayvon is up there looking down on us all, why is it that everyone who dies is "up there" looking down, I guess heaven is full of gangsta's , then he said Trayvon will go down in the annals of history along with Medgar Evers, that makes no sense at all.
Medgar evers was a civil rights activist who certainly was in the least a honest citizen who never identified with criminal behavior. Evers finished high school wasn't ever suspended for criminal activity, he served honorably in World War Two, and died at the hands of a real racist while fighting for civil rights.
To compare Trayvon Martin to Medgar Evers is a total disgrace, has the new generation of civil rights leaders lost their minds?
Exactly what I thought when that baboon said the thug made the list with Evers and Till. Guess he attended the same History class that loud-mouth, oatmeal hat head Ali did! And to think they SUPPOSEDLY took advantage of that free public education. Hum....

Martin was a hood and drug dealer only reason Zimmerman went to court was the media said he was whit at first and ran with the story.

I have often wondered about "Jim Crow", now with this verdict, I realize that there is no reason to wonder any longer.
There was no evidence he continued to follow. Totally legal if he did. All evidence supported Zimmerman's statement that Martin was the attacker. Self defense not guilty.

Ill take that bet, I live in Cedar Creek just east of Dallas, I listen to Willie, Hank, and can do the 2 step. I have used plenty of racial slurs and would not want my daughter to bring home a black boy. There were only a handful of blacks in my high school in Garland Tx and none in the grades before that, as a matter of fact we had black only schools even after civil rights movement. Besides I have no intention of coming back to this forum and exposing myself to the same ignorant fools that nade me want to leave Fla in the first place. Go to Ft. Lauderdale, find Pete Novicki and ask him about the white boy from teaxs that worked for him 15 years ago. He will attest to my skin color and I am sure he is on your side of this stupid argument. he will also tell you I dont take to be called a liar too kindly son.

You still here? Now what ya gonna do? You know barefool, people are usualy guilty of what they accuse others of, whether they falsly accuse them or not. Unless you are a prosecutor and it's your job to accuse others, you're guilty.

Now that the innocent man that you were calling a pedophile for over a year has been found not guilty, what ya gonna do?

Hmmm?

Not guilty does not equate to innocent.

As we know from OJ and Casey, juries often get it wrong.

reading these posts makes me so glad I never brought my family to Fla as planed years ago. I thought I lived amongst a bunch of racist ignorant bigots in Texas, but 3 months in Broward/Dade area proved me wrong. The biggest punks I saw were white punk kids skipping school like it was a school sport or something.When I typed this I used a couple of more colorful descriptive and was warned not to, I removed them but wonder why a few curse words aree deemed more offensive than the racism I have read on this forum.
What alternate reality do you live in, Dade County is made up demographically of more Hispanics and Latinos than whites or blacks, yet there are more blacks in dade county committing school crimes than hispanics or latinos. Hispanics and latinos make up 65 % of the dade county population, white make up 16 % of the population in Dade County. School crimes is so bad in dade county that the dade county school system has to have its own school police department. So to fabricate some silly drivel about white kids skipping school is a bit comical.

What an ignorant comment from a ignorant racist. You are a liar and a deceitful person. Blacks are committing the crimes, not White kids you dumbass.
Never said blacks dont commit crimes,just made an observation of what I saw during my stay there, my brother-in-law was robbed twice by caucasion boys skipping school in Broward co. Heck son the show Cops started in Broward Co and didnt have to branch out for years, had plenty of material to work with. Black or white a bunch of scumbags in the whole area. wake up and look around, all the beautiful people are imports, the rest are inbred idiots like you.

No surprises that Zimmerman was found not guilty. The poorly written Florida "stand your ground" laws allows people to go after people with a gun and kill them simply because they "feel threatened" which is what Zimmerman did.

He went with a gun chasing after a teenage boy. Trayvon got scared and defended himself from Zimmerman. Zimmerman shot him. Florida protects the aggressor, Zimmerman.

Good luck Florida when the streets run red with blood because of your poorly written statute.

Barbara Moton.

The 911 operator testified at trial, under oath, that he did not tell George to "pursue" or not to "pursue" Trayvon, or as he put it, "follow". How did you come to the conclusion that he did?

Creepy Murderer Zimmermurderer can't stay in hiding forever. He will have to face society. Society won't be nice to him, but it will be far nicer than when he will have to face True Justice.

That's right, to the racists on here who clamor for a not guilty verdict from man's justice, know that True Justice doesn't depend on juries or verdicts. True Justice doesn't depend on courts and prisons. True Justice doesn't depend on law enforcement, parole, probation, plea agreements or depositions.

True Justice walks hand in hand with Truth and Character and Integrity. True Justice wades on the Shores of Righteousness. True Justice awakens to the Sunshine of Goodness and Mercy. True Justice eschews evil and evildoers.

That same True Justice will knock on the doors of Creepy Zimmermurderer. The creep MUST answer. There will be no hiding place, no security that he fleeces from paying, no internet defense funds to swindle people out of their money, no "pro bono" lawyers to hide behind.

NO, Creepy Zimmermurderer, you MUST answer to True Justice. You will answer in the same way all the other non-convicted murderers of children will answer.

When True Justice casts her shadow upon you, you will know what way that is.

Until then, don't let the stress keep you ballooning!
