Good then we can see all the Fbook post, text, twitter and photos on trayvon phone also his criminal past and schools records.

Let's cut the BS and get it all out there and let the world know what type of person trayvon was because we heard who GZ was in this court case

Enjoying the verdict aren't you
CASE CLOSED
HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Typical ignorance and shortsightedness from a tea-bagger… this verdict gives the people you hate (Civil Rights Leaders) all the proof they will ever need to push and win battles in the future. Trayvon is dead but his family will receive wealth that came from tea-baggers who contributed to his defense. This very article is proof that this fight against Zimmerman is far from over. The best case for him would have been to have been found guilty of Manslaughter.
But you so desperately need to believe that this is some victory for you and a defeat for me… so far from the truth and reality. All that happened was a man got away with murder (something that happens every day) but in this case he and his family’s life was ruined.

you lose
Ok you win; I lose… Trayvon Martin is dead and Zimmerman got away with murder… for now.

Now what?

I’ll tell you now what:

The NAACP has an online petition going right now to push Eric Holder’s Justice Department to bring a federal case against George Zimmermann…
The Martin family has already filed a civil law suit against Zimmermann…
Social media has already started a Zimmerman watch; which means that when Zimmerman (or any of his family members) is spotted in public his location will be tweeted around the world.

This child killer’s life is done.

But hey, you win and I lose… right?

Unfortunately, nobody really proved anything in the last 3 weeks and that's why Zimmerman is not guilty. I do not think we will ever know what happened. Trayvon Martin was examined closely and he was definitely associated with people and things that portrayed him as the type of person who was into being a "gansta" and not someone who wanted to be looked at as an upstanding young member of society, aspiring to be smart and educated and willing to work hard to better himself. George Zimmerman was examined closely and he was definitely associated with things that portrayed him as the type of person who was into being a vigilante and wannabe cop and extremely lacking in the ability to make good judgments. I am still not sure of what happened that night and I was depending on this trial to shed some light on those events. Both men were in the wrong place at the wrong time, knowingly doing things to make the other feel threatened and in need of defending their lives. In the name of not mistakenly convicting an innocent man, the state didn't come anywhere near proving that Zimmerman murdered Martin rather than killing him in self defense. The jury had no choice, given the evidence they were provided.
They have already hashed through all this. Feds need to go after prosecutors for not sharing all evidence with defense.

This does not matter Marine Corp. This is all a game. Whatever Zimmerman was(guilty or innocent), he was not racist. What white people should have learned not from the cities and from the rural hinterlands is the real pecking order. Our government leaves white folks out to dry in a society where if you breathe wrong it is a racial act or crime. Zimmerman may have been killed in prison. Not because of the tragedy that happened, but because the men of real hate spoke up and turned this into a racial fiasco. so he was used and the race baiters are richer today and inside laugh about it. It won't last forever though. Soon enough a Homeland Security nazi like force will do what Zimmerman did for the good of our nation. Hell the current police are part way there as they educated on these things. And there won't be any questions.

Followers of the NAACP have short interest spans, and by this time next week they will have another white person to bedevil. If we take away their welfare checks, and make them go to work they won't have time for this crap. Some states are passing drug testing for people on the dole. That is a start.

Seems like anyone being followed would RUN AWAY! not run towards the guy following and start beating him. 6ft. Trayvon could see that 5'9" George was no match and he wasn't afraid.

<quoted text>Stop picking on Hispanics lest Obama lose his voter base. And they are not afraid of you one bit. Zimmerman took a black girl to the prom and mentored black kids. He is a good egg. And his voter card is checked HISPANIC. Be careful what you say. They are NOT afraid of you. There is no Civil Rights case. You are nuts and belong in jail for making veiled threats. Obama owes Zimmerman a personal apology and Zimmerman should sue Obama for slander and obstructing justice. Obama is a bigoted coward and a big mouthed idiot. He is a burden and an embarrassment to Americans everywhere, BLACK,WHITE or HISPANIC. Janet Reno bailed out for a reason. Obama's ship is on fire and the rats are all jumping ship.
LOL Right on. We are buying guns like wild fire for a reason.

Hopefully the Hispanic community will understand how Obama, and the Democrats treated one of their own, and vote accordingly.

You know full well about that… the way you and your ilk reacted after things didn’t go your way after the 2008 and 2012 Elections… the difference here is that a child killer got away with murder… but unlike your side when it came to the Elections we have a recourse to get Zimmerman one way or the other - be it federal or civil… or him being spotted on the street or someone finding out his location.
MCP: "we have a recourse to get Zimmerman one way or the other - be it federal or civil...or him being spotted on the street or someone finding out his location". Are you stupid? You should hope Topix does you a favor and removes your "threatening" post!

Black children are murdered every week end in Chicago, and the President, and holder could care less. I pray the Government goes after Mr Zimmerman, just in time for the 2014 elections. They don't want to lose those Hispanic votes, right? What a tight rope they will have to walk. They tried to railroad one of their own. That can't look good to the Hispanic community.
