Perhaps this thuggery calls for a "million carpenter" march?

I think there is some sad irony when Zimmerman brother talks about his killer brother having to look over his shoulder for his own safety:

.. but now “he’s gonna be looking around his shoulder for the rest of his life.” He expressed concerns about people “who would want to take the law into their own hands” instead of respecting the verdict.

Mr. Martin must have looked over his shoulder, seen some creepy guy following him and the creepy guy then "TAKEN THE LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS"

They should if they decide to attack the person who they perceive to be following them. Physical attack is still a crime in this country, following someone is not.

Sad that the imbeciles of this country cannot grasp this concept.

Sad that the hypocrisy is lost on the racist left, that they were outraged at Paula Deen for comments made 20 years ago, but have no problem with Nancy Grace's racist comments regarding Zimmerman.

It appears that their racial outrage is selective to insure that it agrees with their talking points and not reality.

We know Martin was a racist.
We know Martin illegally assaulted the peaceful GZ.
Where's you empathy for the thousands of victims of much worse black racism?
Clearly your entire life has been in lily white neighborhoods, you know nothing of the meaner parts of town, except the lies from other idiotic, ignorant, dishonest liberals who also live far from the violent, racist criminals.
You are wrong in every respect.

-You know nothing about Martin's racial attitudes.
-Your statement that Martin assaulted the "peaceful" GZ is laughable. For your sake, I hope you're in on the joke.
-I have empathy for all victims of violence, regardless of color, sexual orientation, or ethnicity. That even includes rightie nutcases.
-I grew up in a racially and ethnically mixed neighborhood, and am very glad of it. It gave me the opportunity to interact with and befriend people of all stripes, and to get to realize our commonality as human beings.

I pity your narrow perspective.

You cant attack someone for just being creepy or following you. Unless the person is black...and its a creepy cracka...then its not a racist attack. For your screen name you sure don't expect responsibility from folks equally....but thats kinda typical.

What the heck is "daft"? Did you mean deaf? Lol! You are mentally challenged even if I was that wouldn't prevent me from reading a post..now would it? Calm down. Are you blind? Can you read? I said that the 22 year old is in the wrong. I don't defend murderers unlike you. As for the President and the TV stations I don't control any of that sweetheart. You suffer from displaced aggression for sure.
Your govt education did not serve you very well. Please look the word up first before you make a complete fool of yourself. Zimmerman is innocent. Get over it.

Do you expect me to believe that people that beat up other people get the death penalty? That's what some of you are suggesting. GZ got to go to trial to speak for himself and be judged and he was given a jury of his peers. He got justice. T. Martin didn't get that chance that was taken from him along with his life.
