Yes it is unbelievable how you folks are trying to smear the victim, his family, his friend, etc. etc.

Your faux outrage that Mr. Martin came from a divorced family is laughable and all the other smears you throw up like vomit.

Mr. Martin's parents have showed dignity, poise and intelligence as they try and remain positive after their son was killed by some creepy crawly guy.

What excuses do you have for creepy crawly Zimmerman who was trolling his neighborhood, followed a seventeen year old who ended up dead?

Daddy Martin, Father of the Year - "Sometimes a nasty-ass cracka jus' need a good azwhooping."

Ok, he didn't say that to Congress. But Trayvon learned it somewhere.(Maybe from his mom?)

What's next? How about Carlos Danger to tell us about the dangers of sexting? Or the Menedez brothers to speak about how hard being an orphan is?

If he spoke to his SON like a FATHER he would not be speaking on Capitol Hill.

His son was a thug

Very interesting article which explains why you think Zimmerman is a racial profiling racist who gunned down Trayvon Martin for no reason.
Read it unless you are afraid the truth might conflict with what you want to believe.

We're you aware Zimmerman had a history of arrest for violence against police officers and women?

It's a shame that some parents will use their dead kids as a stepping stone to become celebrities and pocket a few bucks along the way. Anything that's free, I guess.

black black black. Just another ploy to save the blacks. Too bad it won't work. Travon got what he got. His parent(s) are to blame. Taught to hate the Whites.
Wow, sounds just like what king obama was taught from the rev wright and all muslims are taught.
Thugs get what they deserve. Now everbody's crying race. Typical friggin crap. We want we want we want. Too bad not everybody gets what they want.
Well then, get educated, get a job and you won't have to be a 3rd class Citizen from a 3rd world country.
Go George, sue the shiit out of all of them. Give George his gun back, he deserves it. NEXT IDIOT TO GO BYE BYE!

Good security work? Found a creepy sneeky violent 17 year old thuglette trolling the neighborhood. Too bad he had his nose broke though. He can get it fixed with all the money he'll hae after suing the news networks.

Can I address Congress too? My kid is in prison for beating up some nasty-ass cracka in Spokane. I think he was unfairly profiled. You racist have a duty to retreat, now that we got us a black president. If we catch you, that's YOUR fault. White men can't run anyway, so that's a given.

My kid was on his way to college too. Probably to beat up some punk-ass nerd. They can't retreat fast enough either.

We're you aware that Zimmerman was fired from his job at a private security company because he assaulted a woman customer?
the latest incident was 2005?
how about tm's list of accomplishments just before he died?
"Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times in the months before he was shot dead by a neighborhood watchman, it emerged today.
The new claims, revealed in a leaked report, paint a different picture of a teenager who frequently found himself in trouble with authorities.
It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen.
The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a 'burglary tool'- a flathead screwdriver - and 12 pieces of women's jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him.
Earlier, he had been suspended for skipping school and showing up late to class. And most recently, in February, he was suspended again when officials found a 'marijuana pipe' and an empty baggie with traces of the drug."

all of this in the months before his death.
and would you look at that picture! he must not have brushed his teeth very often.
btw, where did he get the $ to pay for all those gold teeth?
