Zimmerman should not have been charged in the first place. The only reason he was charges was because of pressure from a racist and anti Semitic hate group! If I was being attacked by a thug I would have done the same thing! People have a right to defend themselves against criminals no matter what their age or race!!

My lies? What lies are you talking about.

I know I am not politically correct and prefer truth over appeasement.

That is just how I roll...

No one likes the ugly truth, but the simple fact is...

In Civil court the Martin's will not be able to ask a judge to throw out relevant information

Trays past was relevant, but not heard.

That case there was the disappointment that I did not forget. Having taxes taken from everyone to pay for the wrongs of the past that amounted to trillions in every way possible even then. Still supported the system but knew changes were needed. After the progressives destroyed the housing system and put us on the no interest in the bank diet five years ago or so, personal survival took precedance. Frankly with no remorse by them, it does not bother me that much anymore in that regard. I tell you, no one can go in front of a camera like an inner city guy or gal. They'd bring down the most innocent of any individual if it went against their views. but when put into practice, the same game plays out. Its time to grow up and deal with these problems. All of us. But they won't. Its easier to blame the system.

Trayvon was walking around aimlessly trying to keep from going home right away all drugged up on pot. Now his parents cannot exploit his death by trying to get more money for their cause, whatever it was. Trayvon was worth $2,000,000. more dead to them then he would ever have been alive. And they took every penny.
You have a right to walk around aimlessly in a public area. You do not have a right to stalk and harrass someone as Zimmerman did. He probably just shot Martin because the kid asked to see his green card.

ICE should deport him back to Peru.

Nonsense. Them supporting Zimmerman is progress. The Tea Party crowd spends most of their waking hours obsessing on shipping brown Mestizo looking people like him back to Latin America.

Why would a racist and antisemitic hate group rise to the support of a brown guy who looks like an Inca and has an obviously Jewish last name?

Use a little of that grey matter upstairs.

To legally kill in the US didn't start with this case. Its been going on since the country was founded, from the trail of tears, to OJ Simpson, to the death penalty, to Vietnam, to Obama's drone wars. Are you upset because someone you don't like got away with murder?
Remember before Obama when murdering people in other countries with unmanned drones was classified as terrorism? He has made us just like Al nQuieda.

I am glad this tragedy did not turn into a travesty. The media and race hustlers convicted Zimmerman without due process. Imagine if Zimmerman was the same race as Trayvon.

Dear, Zimmerman had due process in court - as should have happened in any killing and which did not seem to be the case until normal folks spoke up and said "why not?"

We live in a country where if a thug attacks you then you have the right to defend your life. Nothing innocent about that thug. Do your research of his character
Your point being that if someone is walking a public street and some crazed hispanic guy like Zimmerman starts stalking and harrassing you and coming across like Tony Montana... even after the 9/11 operators instructed him to leave the kid alone... you have a basiuc right to self defense?

I agree. If Martin had shot Zimmerman he should have walked. Stand your ground is not there to protect the aggressor.

Wot now?

Zimmerman gets a job of Fux?

Or as a dispatcher telling creepy folks not to follow and blow a hole through some innocent folk's heart?

In spite of the media propaganda Zimmerman is no cracker. He is as much a pc protected brown minority person as Martin is.

Isnt the media going to ask for a comment from Obama about his dead "son" Trayvon? He'd probably say something stupid that would cause more division and hate just as he always does.

A massive victory for muggers everywhere.

You can run up and attack a guy in the street, just because you don't like the look of him and if he fights back you are legally entitled to shoot him to death.

What a nation.
