Usually, it is a husband killing his wife, something that happens every day.

I would say the people who care the least are the people who insist they have a right to sell guns to the wife beaters.

Like you, "Grampos"

If it takes racial profiling, do it. If it takes gun registration, do it.
REally?

So since the majority of people who own guns are white, you are okay with cops stopping whites and only whites to make sure they are not carrying weapons illegally?

I must have missed your letter to the editor.

Obama administration signs United Nations Arms Trade Treaty

A bipartisan majority of the U.S. Senate is already on record in opposition to ratification of the ATT. On March 23, the Senate adopted an amendment to its FY 2014 Budget Resolution, offered by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), that establishes a deficit-neutral fund for “the purpose of preventing the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” This amendment is in addition to the previous efforts of Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) and Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) to pass concurrent resolutions opposing the treaty in their respective chambers.

Notably, the ATT includes “small arms and light weapons” within its scope, which covers firearms owned by law-abiding citizens.

Further, the treaty urges record keeping of end users, directing importing countries to provide information to an exporting country regarding arms transfers, including “end use or end user documentation” for a “minimum of ten years.”

Do you have traces of drugs in your body right now, Grampos?

Did you know MOST adults are using drugs of some kind, shug?

Have you ever worked in a hospital, Grampos?

I'd bet that if you were to arrive in a hospital- and you were not dead- and you died there, you'd have traces of drugs in your system.

Or you would get them.

And even if you were dead... and still warm...

I wouldn't bet you, of course, because you don't pay off when you lose.

He shot the boy in the chest.

Between you and me, if I am suspicious of someone committing a crime, I'd call the police using a phone.

Your pedophile ignored the police and chased this boy down and confronted him, and then shot him in the chest.

The pedophile does not have the right to shoot people in the chest, even if he is suspicious.

PS: you right to be suspicious ends at the cell phone on the end of your arm.

It goes hand in hand with being a bigot.

Point of fact: the pedophile zimmerman was the one with the arrest record; and his violent behavior has come to light since he was found "not guilty"- including a juror who insists he got away with murder.

There would not have been a killing if your pedophile did what he was told. But we all know exactly what kind of sh!t he is- he was just itching to capture this boy who had EVERY RIGHT TO BE WHERE HE WAS AT.

You would not be here if the pedophile was black.
The pedophile attacker was black. The proof was the phone full of child porn the dead thug had.

When you are attacked by a thug and he is trying to kill you by bashing your head on the sidewalk you can shoot them in the chest. The jury agreed. NOT GUILTY.

Maybe Martin should have used his phone full of child porn to call the police instead of attacking Zimmerman. You finally being up a good point.

<quoted text>This was a tough guy cop wanna be who shot a kid, a kid, seventeen and toting a box of skittles. You racists are great at calling other people racists. The kid was proceeding home after having gone to the store and this nut case just decided to go after him because he was wearing a hoody. You're the clown who says he isn't prejudiced against blacks and then goes out of his way to show just how far from the truth that is.

And, by the way, I'm white.
You left out part of the evidence. Like black teens wearing hoodies were committing the burglaries in the complex and the statement Zimmerman made that Martin appeared to be under the influence that was supported by the autopsy report. You should read all reports and watch the trial. You seem to have little knowledge of the case or you are simply lying.

Maybe the pedophile zimmerman should have stayed put and none of this would have happened.

He could have gone home and back to beating his wife and collecting unemployment.

He was shot dead by a pedophile who decided he would show the real cops how he would handle it if he weren't a pretend cop wannabe.

Can't let those punks be walking the streets of his neighborhood, even if they have as much right to be there as he.

I see the pedophile assaulted someone else since then.

Are you serious? Grandpa knows only blacks split up. All white families are happily married couples.

Well, I guess I'm the ONLY exception.
