Once again, bringing up race is the one nugget you guys just cannot resist. It says plenty about you.
It is YOU who must be full of yourself. It is YOU who has the bad rap.
This case is important for many, many reasons. Many of which you shall never understand.
It cries for Justice.
If not for people like Trayvon's parents, people like those who petitioned, people like those who marched, people just like Zazz and others...
This case NEVER would have seen the light of day.
This case is important because it shone the bright lights of TRUTH upon a small town, southern, immoral, good-ole-boys police force who did their damnedest to sweep this case under the rug.
This case is important because a menace to society is still roaming amongst us.
This case is important because parents and loved ones need to be reassured that when their sons and daughters go to the store, to the park, to the game, to the movies, that they will not be hunted down and murdered and for the law to look the other way.
This case is important because if there is one amongst us whose due process of Justice will be denied, then surely any one of us could be next.
This case is important because it calls into question a politically-driven law, that upon further inspection, is not one that serves ALL of its citizens equally.
This case is important for reasons that transcend Trayvon. It's about a failure of adults, a failure of law enforcement, a failure of society.
This case is important because when someone is killed, law enforcement should summon up all the resources possible to ferret out the Truth and allow Justice to be administered properly. Didn't happen here at all.
This case is important because it teaches us not to be silent; it teaches us that we don't have to be silent. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr exhorts to us that "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
These are but a few of the reasons this case is important. I kept it tame and I kept it brief. If I were going for your emotions, I'd written a lot more and put it in such a way that would have brought a tear to even your hate-filled eyes.
Please don't tempt me.
Yes, this case is important. It's very important!
Excellent. Thank you.

Trayvon Martin's parents should have raised him to be something other than a thug.

As a white female, I have grown more afraid of white men in my area than black thugs. It's clean cut white guys around here who are doing all of savage acts.It was ironic two months ago when I witnessed a "thug" kick a white guys butt for beating for hitting another female; who was white also. My point is for all of you racist on this forum, keep in mind that most savage acts are committed by white males, so get it straight.

And as for as the Trevon Martin case goes, like me, people should keep their opinions to themselves and the jury to what they seated to do.

They did.... but it seems that GI Janie's mommy and daddy didn't. Unless of course, rape, pedophilia, wife beating, drug using is the norm in THEIR family

" ROTFALMFAO!!! Apparently they didn't know who he was. Hmmm... and a kid walking down the street with a bag of skittles and a can of pop hardly qualifies as "rioting". don'tcha think?? nahhh.... that's the whole fcuking problem... YOU DON'T THINK.
Again, Trayvon does not qualify as the black community rioting. Travon was a wanna be tough guy who fancied himself as a wanna be gangsta.
ROTFALMFAO!!! so... this was a white on white crime?? Go figure! heh heh heh! what a dumbazz!!

Zim for prez.
But GI Jane's manners were perfect! right?? Resisting arrest, domestic violence, rape, pedophilia, lying to the courts, etc. etc. etc.... Unfcuking believable! But I am impressed at how these inbred snot nosed racist POS bigots will call a huge steaming pile of sh!t a rose..... WITH CONVICTION. And oh, by the way... COVICITION (of 2nd degree murder) is exactly what you'll get!

The importance of this case is lost on them.

They only see race and hatred. They see with their naked eyes.

I pray that one day the eyes of their hearts will be opened to the bright rays of TRUTH.

Thug Zimmerman's parents should have raised their son to be something other than a woman-beater; something other than a LIAR; something other than a coddled, weapon-carrying Fool; something other than a child killer.

<quoted text>Zimmerman was not indited he was charged by the prosecutor actually he was overcharged. this carnival should have been over a year ago. You need to ask yourself why this case was not put before a grand jury? Corey overcharged Zimmerman because no grand jury would have indicted him
This case was not put before a grand jury because a charge of first-degree murder was not sought by the Special Prosecutor.

The administration of justice (man's justice) was carried out properly by Special Prosecutor Angela Corey.

You need to ask yourself why the proper administration of justice eluded law enforcement in Sanford.

No worries. You need not answer that question. There's a new chief in town now, an outsider. That's good.

What really needs to happen, though, is the Sanford Police Department needs to get rid of ALL the bad apples. A change at the top is a good start, but the core of the rotten apple remains.

Trayvon Martin's parents are responsible for his death. They should have been parents. They should have intervened when he kept getting arrested and messing with drugs.

Here we go again, disparaging Trayvon's parents.

Par for the course.

Please enlighten us as to when Trayvon ever got arrested. You MUST know, since you say he "kept getting arrested."

Please tell us, you LIAR.

Maybe Florida can recover some of the funds it uses to put the pedophile zimmerman in prison by charging other prisoners an access fee when the pedophile gets bent over the bench.
He will never see prison. If Martin had lived he would have been somebody's wife in prison sooner or later.

Directed verdicts are always asked for, but they are almost always never granted. It won't hurt for Team Thug Zimmerman to ask for one, and they will, but it won't be granted.

You are consumed as to whether Thug Zimmerman will be going to the Florida penitentiary. Don't be. Thug Zimmerman himself will tell you that he's living in hell, er, prison right now.

Things aren't too easy for you when you go around beating up on women and cops, when you rough up customers, when road rage overtakes you, and even when you go around killing a child who was minding his own business.
Killed a 17 year old young man in self defense after being attacked.
