How amazing it was that the jury was all white women. Rigged much. They must not have any children.

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?"
Yes, I know, it wasn't meant to be taken literally. What I meant by that was that a decision was made by the media before a trial took place-- doctoring photos and tape recordings to make Martin look like an innocent child and Zimmerman guilty. I am irked by how the case was handled by the media.

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.

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.
Zimmerman was declared innocent which means your post is a bunch of hate-filled bullshit.

They have children… it’s just that they perceive that their children’s skin color has value and Trayvon’s didn’t.

Go die and anybody that kills should be also killed. So when your old ass runs over a farmers market I hope someone has the sense to put you down.

Yes, but will Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson get involved in this case if Zimmerman was also Black? Would it get all the media attention and dissemination of misinformation? Would NBP put a bounty out? The point I am making is how the case was handled by outside parties that could have potentially affected the case before trial. I am not saying Zimmerman was right or wrong, the media affected this trial before it took place.

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.
Seems you don't understand the concept of "gated community."

That is a lie. There is one law for rich and/or famous people like OJ and another for everyone else.

There is no justice in America if a jury can come to this conclusion. This is a license to kill anyone any time. It is now OK to kill anyone you don't like. Just attack them, then stand your ground and shoot them if they don't do everything you say.
This trial was rigged. It sets the precedent that killing is now legal.
So it would have been ok for Trayvon to kill him though? So if someone was beating you and you had a gun, you wouldn't use it, you'd go ahead and let him kill you. This is all Obama's fault. He incites the race card.

At the end of the day. This trial in Florida has confirmed that in Florida you can take the law into your own hands and chase people down and kill them. But make sure they throw the first punch.
I'm glad my Company stopped holding their annual conventions in Florida.
So I'll be ok in Florida if I don't go around punching people?

Thanks for the tip!

Zimmerman was hispanic and looked Inca. Most likely if he were hispanic and looked Nigerian the media would still have painted him as a racist cracker.

Never let the facts get in the way of your argument.

In truth both Zimmerman supporters and Martin supporters are mainly talking racial politics and little interested in the actual facts of the case.

Most Zimmerman supporters interestingly enough would like to round up everyone who looks like him and shove them across the border.
