Dearie,, I don't hate Hispanics or anyone else - but it is distressing that in a country like ours there are those ignorant folks who continue to soak up racist views, hate for others, can't think for themselves, smear dead folks (those who have been killed by some overzealous wannabe cop) and who show their ignorance with every comment.

There is hope - I believe the younger generation are better than ours - and yours - and can also continue a discussion without getting personal.

Yes, I am quite proud.

Most white Christians I know are racist against black people.

They believe that the blood of a white person is more valuable than the blood of a black person

Nobody except for God, Trayvon and George knows what actually went down that night. If George is telling the truth and it was really just self defense then I'm glad he's free. If he's lying he will have to answer to God one day. Anyway, George's life is never going to be the same again.

<quoted text>True he could have stayed in his truck, but normal people if being followed will run or at least leave the area. But Trayvon turned around and went after Zimmerman. He then started to beat Zimmerman. Anyone would claim self defense.
Martin did try to run away. Have you ever tried to outrun a truck? Then Zimmerman got out of his truck and confronted Martin after being told by the police not to. According to Florida law, you cannot initiate a fight then claim self-defense. There is no argument that Zimmerman didn't initiate it. He admitted it.

Your "facts" are incorrect on this one. The real fact is that most people are satisfied with the not guilty verdict and are going about living their normal lives.

Even among those who do not agree with the outcome of the trial, only a handful of them are actually dumb enough to be out looting and stopping traffic in protest over this.

Most of them don't have jobs and are just looking for an excuse to loot local businesses while the rest of them probably aren't allowed to vote because of their criminal records so protest is the only way they have to voice their opinion on anything.

I do not believe the state had a case for either. There was just too much wiggle room as to what happened and when it happened. There is no definitive answer. Without that, there is so much room for reasonable doubt. All it would have taken was one juror to see that and the best the state could have hoped for would be a hung jury.
What do you mean?? Zimmerman admitted he disobeyed a police order to not follow and confront Martin. Zimmerman admitted he left his truck and approached Zimmerman and that Zimmerman had a threatening demeanor. Zimmerman admitted he shot and killed Martin. Based on these admissions alone, Zimmerman is guilty of 2nd Degree murder.

You must quit living in a fantasy and come to grips with your racism and suppressed hatred of greasers and wetbacks.

Otherwise it will gnaw away your guts like a crocodile eating into the guts of a dead hippo on the Congo whose belly has swollen to the size of a yellow hot air balloon filled with pus from the 110 degree heat that goes POP and spews scalding pus like your expressions of sick hatred for Zimmerman just because his dad is a jew and his mom is a greaser.

Please, do it for the sake of children who may be influenced by your raw hatred of Mesoamericans.

Nothing personal I'm just worried about your personal development.

Why don't you just end your sh&& right now! Just do it! Your too sorry to stand up for human rights abuses by your own country!

You sit and talk about Americans who get welfare ... And maybe even affordable healthcare ....
But you won't say nothing when Israel gets 8 billion dollars in welfare every year from Americans.

Your stupid! You watch American government controlled / state run mainstream media and they have brain washed you to the point that you believe it is okay for America to murder innocent brown people around the world for no reason!

American drones have a 99 percent failure rate! So every drone attack that America does ... 99 percent of the time ... They kill innocent people , and targets are hit that were not intended to be hit!

It is a shame!

In France , the people protested because the government raised the retirement age a couple of years. 10's of thousands of people protested!

In America ... People wouldn't even protest when the patriot act was established that violated your constitutional rights and all of your rights to privacy!

I remember when Americans protested the Jewish Bankers and Jewish politicians on New York and California. The government had the peaceful protesters beat up! America shot their protesters with rubber bullets , used gas on them , threw gas grenades in their tents in the park in New York! American police officers even ran , hauled off , and punched a 77 year old woman in the face and knocked her down because she was standing up and holding a sign!

So while America was beating the Protesters in the United States for no reason other than protesting Wall Street and the Jewish Bankers that stole your money ...... America went and bombed Libya because their leader did the same thing! Gaddafi was cracking down on protesters ... And America went and bombed Libya and killed up to 50,000 innocent people by some estimates!

So after America murdered up to 50,000 people in Libya .... When 3 or 4 Libyans tried to fight back and attacked the Embassy ... America called it a terrorist attack!

You see how these people operate! America killed possibly 50,000 people in Libya .... But when a couple of Libyans tried to fight back .... American Government run / State Run Media called it a terrorist attack!!!!
America killed possibly 50,000
They killed only 4
And they are the terrorists????

Wow!!!

And dumbasses like you fall for this shit every time!

Verbal confrontation is not considered initiating a fight in the United States. The fight was initiated when TM broke GZ nose.

If you have a heated exchange of words with someone who spilled a drink on you at a bar do you tell people that you got into a fight? No, you don't. If you punch that person in the face you are then involved in a fight and it was initiated by you.

You clearly have not heard the 911 call. Zimmerman was already following Martin when the 911 DISPATCHER, NOT police told him, "We don't need you to follow do that (follow him)" to which George replied, "Ok". Listen to the call, please.

Keep up, dear friend, and curiously watch CNN once in a while:
A juror was interviewed by Mr. Cooper and said that three jurors initially believed he was not guilty and three believed he was guilty (two voted for manslaughter and one opted for second-degree murder).
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-new...
Earth calling Petaluma.

All the jurors voted not guilty of Murder 2 and Manslaughter.

Guess you missed that.

Perhaps if the creepy cracka had been "cleaning" the street with a broom, he might not have been carrying a gun to shoot through a seventeen year old's heart who he had been stalking one rainy night?
Perhaps if that 17 yr old had just run away or kept walking instead of turning around to attack, he might still be alive. Most people who are being followed, try to run off and hide, not attack the guy following. He caused his own death. If George Zimmerman didnt have a gun, then he would be the one dead.

<quoted text>Didn't you know???? Zimmerman had a truck. He was in his truck, driving around chasing Martin. He got out of his truck to attack Martin. After verbally assaulting Martin, Zimmerman attacked; so he would have an excuse to kill Martin. When Martin shot his weapon, the weapon recoiled into his face causing the bloody nose. It also caused Zimmerman to fall down and hit his head. The marks on the back of his head were very minor compared to his wild story.

Had Zimmerman stayed in his truck like he was told to by the police, no attack had a chance to happen. Zimmerman, by disobeying the police caused the attack.
He thinks its still the 1950s he old and dumb and senile!!!
