Ship him back to Peru.
Give him more bullets and keep him here.

Actually the FBI said there was no racism involved in the case. FBI will make a great witness for Zimmerman.
Truth.

That may be true, but the Africans are in control of the Government's corrupt "justice" system. The Africans are using George as a "stand-in" for the White male. There may have been no "racism" involved when George was forced to use deadly force to defend his life and limb when, under cover of darkness, his brains were being bashed out onto a cold concrete sidewalk, but there sure is plenty of racism in the Government's "justice" system.

<quoted text>The area where the confrontation took place was on his way home. Have you ever thought, maybe he thought he had lost killerman and was comming out to go home, and there he was. A dead man cannot speak, and do you REALLY think killerman was going to tell the truth, REALLY.
The evidence supported his statement. I think the seasoned investigator said he believed him. So did the jury. They got it right.

I'm amazed that he had been suspended three times and his parents did (Nothing) to stop him, no restrictions at all and he was completely unsupervised , after all the trouble he had been into. You would think that maybe his Mother or Father would ground him,take away his privileges to walk around, take away his cell phone, internet, iphone whatever he texted with, instead he was making runs to 7-11 getting people to buy him blunts and texting for hours on end bragging about his aggression,bragging about being a gangsta, one friend even replied by warning him if he continued with his violent behavior he might get shot "in ya chest" is what the text said, yet none of that is relevant to the race card strategy of the black community.

And what was his parents thinking, they didn't disapprove to his wearing a button of his career criminal cousin, idolizing criminal behavior?
They failed him. They are more to blame than Zimmerman.

If it is in their SOP they better. It could be grounds for termination if you make a case that is total BS and could result in a civil suit against the department.

<quoted text>I agree. I'm on the side of T. Martin and I believe the best way to have handled this situation is to have run right on home. I don't believe he deserved to die and I don't condone any of his poor behavior. I believe that he needed to get out of the situation and I wish to God that he stayed blameless. I understand that he wasn't perfect and he may have had a chip on his shoulder but you have to handle yourself like a young man. In a society where you are expected to act like a savage animal you can't answer that expectation with anything other than complete restraint even if it kills you. Unfortunately because he isn't "clean cut" it's ok that he was murdered and I don't agree with that. I challenge anyone on this site to admit that even if he was clean cut if that is something that a black young man can even achieve in the eyes of society. The thing that bothers me is that some people on this site are taking this opportunity to say that black people are bad. This isn't even about that and it wasn't the central focus of what was brought to court. Race was supposed to be kept out. The truth is it never is. As much as I want it be it never is.
It is unfortunate that race was brought in to this. We can blame the Martin's, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Obama for that and many others. They fueled the fire on this one. They posted the picture of the 10 year old little Trayvon and a photo of Zimmerman when he was a lot larger and in orange. The media even edited tapes to make Zimmerman look racist. It's a complete shame. The jury was smart enough to see this case for what it was and found him not guilty.

Buff ill, you know damn well I take nary a word from you seriously.

But seriously, either you start amusing me or I'll have to give you a taste of the good ole days. You do remember, right?

Those were the days where you'd show your ugly self and I'd whip you into such a verbal frenzy that you went and grabbed one alias after another to come attack me with your nasty and evil rants.

You remember those days? It's when you went and cried together with Bronach the LIAR. HA! You damn right I remember those days. You better call up the ghost of Bronach.

It's taking the negro panthers as long to take their so called action or their planned riot as long as it takes them to put my combo together at mc Donald's and that's always wrong too. They will probably put hit on wrong person too. Hopefully it's another coon

BAREFOOT & ZAZZ have spent a year on welfare posting, uncontrollably about this animal.

In the end, NOT GUILTY.

This is like a Christmas present.

Been telling those idiots for a year what the evidence was. Just didn't want to read all the reports or accept the truth. They were blinded with racism.

<quoted text>Trayvon's "waiting in the dark" is just a theory from the defense. There is no proof of any such thing, since the only other witness is dead. The kid might have waited around because he didn't want this weird person to know where he lived. We can only guess; we cannot know.

Even the prosecution acknowledged that Zimmerman was following Martin. Zimmerman instigated the entire tragedy. He should simply have reported his suspicions and stayed put. Had he done so, we'd instead be arguing the pros and cons of gay marriage or something.
Doesn't really matter what the prosecution acknowledged. They had no proof.

Stalking does not apply in this case. That is why he wasn't charged. You're welcome.

<quoted text>That raises questions:

- Why was Martin "suspicious-looking" ?
- Was he profiling Martin because of his skin color, his hoodie, or something else?
- Why didn't Zimmerman confine his activity to just watching instead of tailing, and let the police take it from there?
In order to watch a moving suspicious person you would have to move also. There was no profiling in this case.

He was not performing the duties that night. He was however observing and reporting until He lost sight of Martin. Then Martin decided to attack.

I thought that the DeadAmbassador, from the BenghaziDECEPTION was the gay one?
