<quoted text>DITTO to that! Obama said "I know what if feels like to be on an elevator and have people looking at me and my being concerned". Wouldn't that be profiling? Now I'm going to demonstrate why profiling is good, and if what he said were true, it would show our country has a long way to go before we stand as a nation united. I as a white man do regrettably identify people's ethnicity when I look at them. That is simply a matter of superficial recognition and says nothing of my feelings for the individual I am looking at. But knowing the statistics exist which you described gives me great concern if I find myself alone in a similar circumstance to that which Obama described. The last time whites typically physically accosted blacks in large numbers, was at the inception of the civil rights movement. Whites, Blacks, Latinos, and Chinese may account for violent crimes perpetrated against one another, but those statistics merely reflect gang or drug related crime. Whereas, the more prevalent incidence of black on white crime, versus white on black crime, not related to gangs or drugs can be statistically proven.
blacks are mogorially violent and predatory and more so to whites than other because of our anti caucasian government and media those racist institutions first need to be brought down for their crimes against humanity, repalced with legitimately operting non prejudicial institutions then we can do what needs to be done to create a peaceable environemnt for all, we can see the miserable failure of integration, starting with the government school system, as such if blacks never had the capability to live peacefully amongst themselves it is certin that it should and would have been even more problematic integrating them with white people, it may take thousands of years for them living segregated before they would be ready for integration, the big thing is they need to solve their problems within their community, the american indian has had their segregated spot, so should the tribal african, the the caucausian can then have peaceable neighborhoods as in the past

Zimmerman shot an unarmed teenager and the evidence is that the injuries he sustained to the back of his head were minor injuries,
not injuries caused by a pounding of his head on concrete.
No concussion, no pounding of his head on concrete. No skull fractures to the back of his head, no pounding of his head on concrete.
Clearly the defenders of Zimmerman know nothing about fighting.
In trying to defend Zimmerman's use of deadly force, Greta claimed that the visibility that night was less than 10 feet. That works both ways though. The witnesses couldn't have seen what they claimed to see from more than 10 feet away which means some of them had to be lying. It also means the witness who alleges Zimmerman's head was being pounded on the concrete by Martin was close enough to help so that Zimmerman was not in danger of dying.
Either he is lying or Greta is lying. I'm pretty sure Greta isn't lying.
pictures of the complex are like most in this country today, they are lit up like a christmas tree, visibility would be almost as good as day for 20 20 acquity, it seems those like you are intent on promoting lies and believing and getting non suckers to accept those like just because you believe it you unfortuantely don t have enough credibility to continue to scam, the internet block the scams of the past

The property owner's settled with the Martin family for wrongful death of their son in a six figure settlement.
They knew Zimmerman would be forced to take the witness stand by the Martin's attorney in a civil suit.
They backed down fast.
what they got was a judgement, a worthless piece of paper, can be easily discharged with another piece of paper, a promissory note or take it before another judge and ask for dismissal now that the case criminal has concluded, opposition was fishing for information from defendant at an improper time, oj simpson was charged civilly and never paid

Obozo, seemed to poo-poo the stats on who in America is committing the most crimes as an excuse for whites to stay away from blacks. The stats don't lie, as a race in America, blacks are responsible for almost 85% of crime. Highest rate of high school drop-outs, highest rate of teens getting pregnant. Highest rate of those in jails, highest rate of single parent families, highest rate of drug use and yet they're only 13% of the population. OH!, boo hoo feel sorry for me.
People like Al $harpton and Je$$e Jack$on, continue to make their living by telling the thugs and other blacks that they are being picked on and shuned by white America, they're not getting their fair share.
Blacks have brought upon themselves what white America thinks of them in general. They have no one to blame but themselves. The democratic party has continued to coddle the black vote, toss them a few bones and they will vote for them, but be sure to keep them right where they are, don't need them to get too far up the ladder. Continue to remind them that they are a minority who needs to be taken care of.
Obozo's little speach was trash, all he did was toss the blacks a little bone and showed them that he too is a racist fool. He needs to be tossed under the bus and impeached. His concern for white America wasn't even mentioned.
every thing is true, we have 13% controling the destiny of this land they claim by voting, no way that an election can determine and direct and then to direct the deplorable conditions, it certinly brings out the fraud in the elections, we do know the liberal organizations join that 13 percent teachers, unions, doctors and lawyers yet the figures don t add up, it has to be that the media conducts its propaganda and like the computer guru in ohio testified that all the voting machines were rigged to produce the outcome of votes the oligarchy desired in any one election, people need to get mad then get even

Just ask yourselves, do you want to live in a world of so many drones? If they do that, it makes a very repressive world, like acting on neo-Hitlerism.

Drones are bad, because they do not reflect on the ground data. They are like blind robots by collecting huge information on people to increase the data base, and might be false.

Since any history and nowhere on earth but in US, Obama is the king of spying and taking on more people lives in US, by building data base on them to know what they are doing and to trouble their privacy rights of private lives, besides using hacking and phone tapping.

All these could victimize more innocents through inaccurate and false interpretation and information, as they could be no solid true ground data.

Therefore, a lot of times the data are not true--like those witnessed by public naked eyes on the ground.

Since, nor CIA has all accurate data and information, drones have harmed and killed more and wrong people in foreign places than done any good.

The world has modern technology that people can make drones to crush US drones as being unlawful in others' space and ground.

But it would create more backlash and antagonism to US if it flies a lot of drones outside.

No matter how many times you say or cry about it. In this country you are innocent until proven guilty.
After you are charged with a crime- in this country- you are "not guilty" until proved guilty.

After you are charged, and you make a plea, you are "not guilty".

You have to have to go back to the court and have your charge EXPUNGED. Even after the judge drops the hammer and declares you NOT GUILTY.

Not "innocent".

You are no longer ever innocent.

Juries are charged with the responsibility of determining not if a person if someone is "innocent" (did not do the crime) but whether or not the state proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the person is GUILTY.

A concept that is understood (or should be) by anyone who has ever did his civic duty- which may leave you out and certainly people like xxxPinocchio who proudly declares he manages to avoid his civic responsibilities.

I cannot help you are too stupid to accept this.

Drones are hardly blind.

And of course they reflect ground data, we've all seen it.

Do you want this back?

Putting aside I don't know how you got into this so far off topic but even if it was on the right thread, saying drones are blind is like saying bombers don't have bombs.

Fair enough. Let me know when you want the Wiki link that explains Trayvon was staying at his fathers girlfriends house--not HIS house.
Okay, his father's girlfriend's house it is. I don't see how it makes a whit of difference. The fact remains that Trayvon Martin was not there illegally, and was doing nothing illegal when Zimmerman took it upon himself to follow him. If Zimmerman had stayed in his vehicle, as he should have, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

If the family is dumb enough, and they are, to sue GZ then the Defense team for GZ will unleash the dogs from hell to get the goods on them and their dead thug gangsta wannabe's short but checkered life. He has a 'record' replete with illegal gun possession, cultivation of MJ,child porn all on his double password protected fake app encrypted phone, his criminal ans school records, his fighting history, his tox and autopsy with MJ in his system and fatty liver from "lean" abuse-it makes one paranoid and aggressive-go figure NOW why the thug jumped and pummelled the pudgy lil Hispanic dude... and then there is Tracy, I wonder what is in his past?

Sorry to inform you of this but the facts are The Florida State Scool for Boys at Marianna, Fl had no black employee's period. All guards were white.

http://alu5.ug32qirdxx3drksb5zpkrvlzske.uk 35.e/
Likewise all of the house parents, the lake sheriff and all his butties that ran the Green Isle Boys Ranch in Lake County Florida were white. some of the victims were reportedly black and no one knows for sure about deaths and graves on the old Green Isle Boys Ranch property but given the sheer numbers of leaked reports of rapes and brutal violence it should be investigated instead of being covered up for years by the pedophiles that run the place!
Visit the 44 page summary on Green isle you will see the sheriff pictured with the last know rapist whom the sheriff protected and whom is free on the streets today having committed more actis of violence against a date.

Sorry to inform you but if ANY blacks were raped or murdered at the Ranch they were raped and murdered by OTHER BLACKS who were staying at the facility!!!...

NOT BY THE EMPLOYEES!!!!!!!

You conspiracy whacko's are the lowest form of racists on the planet.

Now GFY's!!!

As a former union drone cop, you should know it is not unlawful to 1. watch someone from your car. 2. get out of a vehicle to see where they ran! 3. even follow a running person on foot(not proved in court by ANY EVIDENCE, comrade)4.ask when approached or approaching a stranger in your neighborhood, at night, in the rain-either way, "What are you doing here?"

The first act of crime was the sucker punch by your hero the Hyphenated-thug, the next crime was the take down by said thug, then the next crime,the ground and pound, again by the thug and finally the last criminal act was the head banging on the sidewalk, yup, again perpetrated by the Hyphenated-thug.

I know you already have a brain injury but honestly, I know a stretch for ya, comrade, you would just have layed there??? and taken the next blow, how about the next head bang? then the next,too....when would be enough head thumps, even for you?

The pedophile wasn't charged with watching, following, waddling after, approaching, or asking.

He was charged with shooting a hole in a boy who had every right to be where he was at.

And the boy had every right to be right exactly where he was at.

The first crime was when the pedophile grabbed the boy with one hand while pulling the gun out of his pants with the other.

PS: If you are standing in front of me and I smack the sh!t out of you, it isn't a sucker punch. Putting aside you pedophile told FOUR versions of his story until he could get one down pat, it could not have been a sucker punch. A sucker punch is an "unseen" punch.

Even if you want to buy the pedophile's collection of stories that he found himself in front of Martin.

Putting aside we all know the pedophile is in the very least a liar.
