Still waiting for that proof of your assertion: that the pedophile followed Martin for less than ten seconds.
... Funny how Pinocchio and roll around stomping his feet demanding proof when never back up his sticky mouth...
One wonders how long it will be before the pedophile is arrested again.
NOY GUILTY , bareback. Get accustomed to it. The verdict is not going to change no matter how badly you wish it would. Zimmy is free to stop anther thug DEAD if necessary SYG is not going to go away anytime soon due to the violent nature of those who do not pass the paper bag test

He's definitely not in law enforcement. That's why his name is citizen. I highly doubt he is even a legal citizen.
If he was in law enforcement, he would understand the difference between self-defense and felonious assault. If he was in law enforcement, he would understand the difference between self-defense and murder.

He said law enforcement, what he forgot to mention was Paul Blart, mall cop.
I see he now switched from law enforcement to attorney. Give him a few days, and I'm sure by then he'll be a scientist. ;-D

Yea we all know it..You know Zimmerman MURDERED Trayvon..You just don't care because Trayvon was black and you Nazi KKK types love when blacks die.
As you know the jury did not convict Zimmerman of murder.
You also know that the jury did not convict O J Simpson of murder.

Here is a question to you as well as the people who support the Zimmerman/ Martin jury:

Can you support the decision of one of these juries and not the other?

I would think that's a state issue and not a federal one. The feds can't force companies to hire people that they feel will jeopardize their business.
In my state, they are considering such a law, but under a "one strike and your out" basis. The proposed law would protect first time felons from discrimination. We have a lot of people who are in jail simply because of narcotics and nothing else. These people are not violent or thieves and only made the mistake of getting caught up in these recreational drugs.
I'm not crazy about the government getting involved with business practices such as hiring, but on the other hand, what's a convict supposed to do if he or she can never work again? It's pretty tough for an adult to make it on minimum wage if the can even find that kind of job.
Today's local newspaper has an add for employment. It says that applicants will have to have background checks for both criminal activity and drug use. IS IT DISCRIMINATION BECAUSE A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF BLACKS WILL NOT BE HIRED BECAUSE THEY HAVE EITHER A DRUG PROBLEM OR HAVE HAD A CRIMINAL RECORD? Which is more important, public safety, employment rights, or the right of a company to hire whom they want?

Obviously those people, black, white, or yellow who are into drugs or who have a record of criminal activity will have a difficult time getting a job. What are their options? Is it possible to teach all of our young people BEFORE they get involved with criminal activity or BEFORE they experiment with drugs that there are consequences of these activities?

Then there is this question: How can background checks ON EVERYBODY discriminate against ANYBODY?

If BMW and Dollar General are forced to do away with background checks then, that soon will be the law of the land. Remember this suit is brought by a federal agency. How can these two companies be forced and not everybody else?

That is why these questions are important. Our safety and the future of those with criminal or drug problems are at stake.

Which will prevail? What would the U.S. Supreme court say?

That's a tough one. I'm a landlord and I do discriminate against felons. I won't rent to them nor allow them to live with a tenant I'm renting to. It's not that I don't think people deserve a second chance, it's that I've had too many problems renting to them in the past. One time my house nearly burnt to the ground.

Job discrimination is another story altogether. Many blacks are felons but they weren't born that way. They decided to become felons.

A few years ago, a nearby suburb had problems with the black kids. The Mayor decided to make a new curfew. All people under the age of 18 had to be inside by 6:00 pm.

The blacks went nuts saying it was discrimination even though the law obviously didn't mention race. Eventually the city had to reverse the law because of all the political pressure.

My city had the same problem, but our Mayor back then instituted a law that stated the parents are responsible for the actions of their children. The blacks went nuts but our Mayor stuck to his guns. One black mother took it to court because her kid was constantly in trouble with the police, and the court struck the law down.

You don't need to mention race for them to accuse you of racism. They say Voter ID is racist, higher penalties for crack over coke is racist, curfews are racist, Sticking up for George Zimmerman is racist, everything is racist.

2003. SCOTUS says no, HomoOne.

Like the 40+ times the Republicans have tried to defund the Affordable Care Act.

Why Congress as a ten percent approval rating.

So it's safe to say you won't be applying, eh, Grampa?

And that is before you get to the requirement for a diploma or a GED.

When's the last time you looked drug busts for meth, bigot? put all the pictures of people busted for meth here and it is whiter than a KKK rally- something I am sure you can relate to.
