Lesson to hyphenated-thugs: Don't play "Knock out Whitey" in a gated community where CCW permits exist (unless you can one punch the "creepy ass cracka")as you will get capped,homes. You can do that in Chicago as I hear "Whitey don't carry".

Not if but WHEN this country totally implodes, it's nobody's fault but the DOJ for pampering the naacp and other troublemaking little whiners. 'Nuff said.

I had planned to go to Disneyland and Universal Studios sometime in the future with my family. This would have been a great trip for my youngest daughter. Due to the verdict rendered in the Trayvon Martin verdict, I won't coming to Florida! I will not spend money in a state that does not value human life. Florida is a state that has no sense of justice. I believe many people will boycott Florida because of this case.
Oh Noooo.....Walt Disney will be crushed.......if he was'nt already frozen......

Thousands of people have gathered all across the country protesting against The Colonel!

Angry mobs took to the streets to protest the unfair sale and distribution of chickens.

Demonstrators carried signs that read "Chicken Now!"...and "Where's My Bucket?"..as they shouted

"EBT KFC EBT KFC EBT KFC EBT KFC!"

Chicken union spokesrooster Treebone Legbone pleaded for federal and State protection from the onslaught of hungry protesters..."Our hens are helpless and are being surrounded by these Chupacabras! Send in the National Gaurd now!"

Comrade "Recovering Molester", as you have discussed with you PO and Shrink numerous times there is no such thing as a Recovering Pedophile. So you should just stay in prison until you die or Whitey will with his CCW permitted gun, put a cap in your Hyphenated-ass.

Not illegal, dear friend, but Zimmerman should have used common sense (does he have any?) and stopped following Mr. Martin.
That small piece of "common sense" from creepy wannabe cop would have saved a life.
What about Trayvon's "common sense", dear friend? Why didn't he just head home if he was creeped out by Zimmerman? Isn't that what we teach our CHILDREN -- run home (to safety) if someone is scaring you?
Had he not waited around for a confrontation, he would still be alive.
How would you feel if Zimmerman was black and Martin was "white-hispanic"?

All goupr think peole They are rampantly and unapologetically racist be they white, black, hispanic, etc. etc. etc. The problem is not thinking of people as having unique personal character and instead using terms like "my people" etc. This creates the “outsider”.

Martin seemingly did beat the hell out of Zimmerman, an indication of Martin’s individual character. Zimmerman most likely followed Martin because of his race, dress, and age (an indication of Zimmerman’s individual character).

Unknown teenagers (of any race) in my neighborhood usually accompany a disturbance or damage. Trying to "be cool" and "cut them a break" and “let them be” is usually a big mistake in my neighborhood. When we do the “let them be” approach, we end up with theft, vandalism, graffiti, and fast food and alcohol trash all over the place. So, I - like Zimmermnan - confront these potential jerk-offs and the neighborhood is better for it. Do I carry a gun when I confront them? No. I wish I could but cannot because I am in California. If I was assaulted by one of these teenagers I would gladly put several bullets into them. You do not strike me without consequence. Why should anyone else get beat on and not respond deadly force? I am not morally obliged to respond with equal force. You strike me I end you. Keep your hands off of me.

Eliminate tribalism like White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Jew, etc. and all of the other ways people isolate themselves into groups with and you can start to whittle down on stereotypes. America’s promise is cohesion through recognition of individual traits not “group” stereotypes. If you don’t keep out the “____ Pride”(insert your group in the blank) crap these problems will only magnify. Why is there racism? Because of “group think”. So next time you feel compelled to use a “my people” expression of any type remember: using such a “my people” expression indicates a blatant racism on your part by definition of exclusion of others based on their race, ethnicity, etc.

Equality for all. Group think for none.

The verdict was not guilty. That doesn't mean he wasn't guilty, it just means he got away with it; so far.
A not guilty verdict doesn't really mean you are innocent; it just means you are not going to jail, and it may mean, as is often the case in Florida, the jurors were idiots.
nope the jury got it right trayvon was a felony waiting to happen. zimmerman saved us all from a future murderer. lil crayon was a druggie, with burglary tools, with liver damage from dxm.

Be Truthful Be Free, AKA County Inmate, AKA Cristo1, AKA Crisco thinks he/she's a real lawyer. This person of Redbone has been on here for well over a year now and it still can't comprehend the slightest concept of Florida Law.

He/she is the most pompous ass there has ever been on Topix. Personally, I think he/she thinks he/she's GOD.

He/she will call down The ARC of Justice upon you!

Ha ha ha ha ha...
