I believe both George and Trayvon are victims of a tough economy, but at the same time, I'm against Zimmernan lying and hiding behind self-defense...<quoted text>
I thought they didnt have to convict him of murder. I thought they had the option of a manslaughter conviction. Not so?
_When economy is bad and folks see themselves and their parents losing jobs, homes and their dignity while Republicans/T-party crooks cutting Social programs,etc., everybody gets frustrated and survival instinct takes over, driving them to take on each other (fighting for scraps)
_Martin's parents and Rev. Sharpton should attribute much blame to them young Negroes who were robbing folks in that community, as well
_We now know, Zimmerman had psych issues and had been seeing a Psychologist before shooting while his wife was getting unemployment benefits...
_This was a perfect storm:
1. Neighborhood was being terrorized by young Negroes (not Trayvon, of course) and Sanford Police failed to protect them
2. Zimmerman and his wife were struggling financially but were trying to get college degrees and were frustrated that them young Negroes had chosen to steal instead of doing same
_ I don't believe Zimmerman killed Martin just because he hated Negroes. George killed Martin because he believed Trayvon was one of them neighborhood young Negro thieves....
_ Sanford Police, yes..., they let George go because they don't value Negroes' lives
_ I'm sure, Wall Street fat cats are enjoying this Black/White drama in the Media, but they know for sure it's not about race; it's rather a fight for survival for those at the bottom scale of our social striation...
_ Many talk about the chronic epidemy of Blacks on Blacks crimes and they believe it's a culture or racial thing; well, now understand it's not just a race thing, it's an economy thing!
- As the economy remains stagnant, expect more of this type of killings to move into our suburbs as well....
