The point was always that many of your racist, filthy and vile posts were removed. And, YES, ultimately you are the one who had them removed. You are the one who went against the policies of Topix (and common sense) concerning posting on their forum.
Ever heard of personal responsibility? Yes, you, and you alone, are responsible for your own actions. You caused many of your posts to be removed. You are the one who writes that filth. You are responsible, Fool.
What's your post count now? 200,000? 300,000? 400,000? You are the Filthy Posting King of Topix.
Congratulations Jerk.
So by your reasoning Buffalo is personally responsible for posting the offending materials so in fact he is also personally responsible for its removal due to violating the Topix policy.

So by that reasoning Martin chose to assault Zimmerman for questioning him so he is ultimately responsible for his own death by making the choice to physically attack Zimmerman violating the law against assault.

The removal of Buffalos postswas justified and the shooting of Martin was justified.

Ok I get it now.

Wake up! Haven't you heard?
Thug Zimmerman himself will testify that he was following Martin when evidence is produced to the jury.
Let's see if this rings a bell with you...
The dispatcher asked if Mr. Zimmerman was following him. "Yeah," Mr. Zimmerman said.
"O.K.., we don't need you to do that." (Various media reports).
You need to get out more.
Not a crime.....our neighborhood watch follows suspicious folks too. They don't want to stick around where they know folks are watching. Traybon made a fatal error with his thug attitude he was gonna teach the wrong cracka a lesson. opps.

Since when have you ever abided by the rules of Topix?

"Be Polite"?....That's a laugh!....LOL!

All you and your cohorts do is try to get a rise out of anyone who doesn't go along with your insane nonsense, and then when they naturally respond in a curt manner you automatically assume that you have the moral high ground.

You are a liar, a hypocrite, a racist, and a buffoon.

You are everything that you've accused me of being, not to mention a flaming homosexual and a lazy no good welfare queen.

All day long all you do is bait honest posters on Topix with your pompous ridicule. It must suck to be you.....in more ways than one.

George Zimmerman sues NBC over Trayvon Martin reports
Lawyers for George Zimmerman filed suit today against NBC Universal Media over a well-publicized editing error that portrayed their client in racist terms in his pursuit of Trayvon Martin on a drizzly evening in February.
“NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so to set about the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain,” states the civil complaint in its opening salvo against NBC.
NBC’s editing of the 911 audiotape in the Martin case became a public fixation after the media-monitoring Web site NewsBusters.org noted editing oddities on a “Today” show broadcast March 27. Here’s how NBC News portrayed the audiotape:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
The full tape went like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
Zimmerman thus didn’t volunteer a racial profile of Martin; he was asked to provide it, a point that the lawsuit makes in colorful fashion:“NBC created this false and defamatory misimpression using the oldest form of yellow journalism: manipulating Zimmerman’s own words, splicing together disparate parts of the recording to create illusions of statements that Zimmerman never actually made.”
The suit against NBC alleges four other instances in which NBC-produced shows aired false and defamatory versions of the same events. Zimmerman faces a second-degree murder charge in the case.
The botched edits, charges the suit, were far from innocent mistakes:“Defendants pounced on the Zimmerman/Martin matter because they knew this tragedy could be, with proper sensationalizing and manipulation, a racial powderkeg that would result in months, if not years, of topics for their failing news programs, particularly the plummeting ratings for their ailing “Today Show” as well as for the individual defendants to “make their mark” for reporting a [manipulated] story such as this.” Individual defendants are Lilia Luciano and Jeff Burnside, NBC employees involved in early cases of Zimmerman mis-editing.
Following a public uproar over the tape-doctoring, NBC News issued a statement on the matter saying this:“During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.”
Such contrition didn’t impress the Zimmerman camp.“Only after the defendants’ malicious acts were uncovered and exposed by other media outlets … did defendant NBC ‘apologize’ and terminate some of those in its employ responsible for the yellow journalism identified in this Complaint.” Zimmerman himself never received an apology from the defendants, according to the suit.
The suit doesn’t specify a dollar amount of damages that Zimmerman is seeking.“That’s showmanship,” says James Beasley, the Philadelphia-based lawyer representing Zimmerman in the suit.
Beasley declined to comment on whether he’d already had any discussions with NBC.“I don’t want to talk about that. I can’t talk about that. But let’s just say I don’t think it’s going to get settled.”
On that question, at least, Beasley and NBC appear to agree. When asked about the complaint, NBC Universal issued this statement:“We strongly disagree with the accusations made in the complaint. There was no intent to portray Mr. Zimmerman unfairly. We intend to vigorously defend our position in court.”

Nope, the subject is race, just like I said. 2 black guys, 2 white guys, no story. Poor blackie got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and you can't stand it. If only half the black thugs who kill, rape, rob and assault whites got what Martin got they might learn how to behave.
It may come to that. Whitey is getting fed up. I predict within the next ten years there will be a racial confrontation. It's what blacks do. Look at Africa.

George Zimmerman showed restraint and excellent marksmanship without exhibiting overkill. One shot one kill. Yes it appears the blacks are looking to start racial problems. The US Government upon freeing them should have shipped them back to the Dark Continent. In not doing so the US is doomed and damned to feed and clothe the savage beasts until the White Citizenrt that founded this great nation gets enough and eradicates the wild animals from US soil.

At this point the Government should treat them as they did the Indians. Round em up, march em into the desert and corral them in a very secure and isolated area!

You are a liar, that is a fact.

This is reflected in your many aliases: you cannot even stand behind what you say.

Pedophile Zimmerman had the arrest record for assaults, not the boy he chased down and killed.

WTH does the above nonsensical sentence mean?
