Good god - what a noxious, odoriferous cloud of mental flatulence.
PHEW!
That said, Jehovah's Witnesses are superstitious fools, considering that their silly god is about as real as the Pillsbury Doughboy or the Michelin Man. I never have understood why people have to lean on the ethereal crutch of religion, especially when there is no supporting evidence for such absurd beliefs. Oh well, what can I expect from a drooling cadre of ignorant, talking anthropoids?
Incidentally, it's time for you to realize that people have the right to be racists - consult the First Amendment. People also have the right to be prejudicial, intolerant and bigoted, whether you like it or not.
It's called "freedom of association". If you don't believe me, ask any competent lawyer.
Atituuude Attituuude. Is it that time of the month. Noxious? odoriferous? Stop giving me homework. You called me an anthropoid. Thanks for the compliment. I've always thought apes were handsome. They give off a very masculine ora, or is it gorillas. Well anyway one group has swag,or is it swagger. They definitely can't compete with the Tiger though.

I presume you mean Mr. Martin who's quest was to walk back from buying a packet of skittles - is that considered "doing nothing" to folks like you?
BTW, attorney Burris has said in an interview that the prosecution should have argued that Mr. Martin was actually the person standing his ground because Mr. Martin was the one being pursued by the creepy guy with the gun.
" Mr. Martin" was a 17 year old punk with a bad attitude. Zimmerman gave him a permanent attitude adjustment

Folks with common sense would stay in their car when asked not to follow a seventeen year old innocently walking on the streets at seven in the evening.
If Creepy Zimmerman had listened, used his brain and common sense like "most people", this conversation would go back to birtherism for you folks.
It appears you are quite the racist....and certainly more than you think Z ever could be. Sounds like you would stay locked up in your car when you see 'innocent' black kids walking in your neighborhood. Zimmerman wasn't racist like you. He saw a kid who looked like he was up to 'no good' because he looked high in drugs. That happened to be a fact which had nothing to do with his race. Martin had drugs in his system, physical evidence of long time drug abuse AND he brutally attacked an innocent resident. If Z were racist like you, he would have stayed in the car. There is a reason people lock their cars and roll up their windows when they see black teens approaching.

Dear your assumptions are ignorant and not factual and ridiculous.
Zimmerman stalked, followed a seventeen year old, continued to follow him despite being asked not to follow him, should have stayed in his car and kept his gun in the glove compartment.
Many folks agree with the juror who said:
"George Zimmerman got away with murder," she said. "But you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with.[But] the law couldn't prove it."
Keep to the facts, dear, and leave the assumptions to Zimmerman who should have assumed some common sense.
Don't look now but LeRoy is gonna make his move.

He just got released from prison and he's looking to score.

He likes those large heifers.

I have high hopes that Zimmerman will be interviewed and we can find out more, correct his untruths, ask about his past brushes with the law and substances are true and why he did not use his common sense when trolling and stalking his neighborhood with a gun.
Oh, so you think that Zimmerman is gonna incriminate himself, eh?

If your brain functioned any slower you'd be in reverse.

The only thing Zimmerman is gonna do is get rich now that he survived the struggle with the rabid beast.

Maybe YOU could interview him.

You could ask him what he thinks about big fat liberal numbnuts like yourself.

For a good laugh listen to this "BLACK" "POLITICIAN". All blacks and their white enablers are so full of shit. Hahaha now this antique Rachel Jeantel claims the Chicago police are killing all those black hoodlums hahaha. That's wishful thinking and the police would probably be glad to help out in that respect but this is just another example of how the blacks want to pass the buck. Hahaha Its whiteys fault again hahahahaha! This is fkn hilarious!

Martin was a pedophile with a phone full of child porn.
This is disgusting although I didn't know the details of this. A white guy in Steubenville went to jail for two years for child porn. No doubt the school police ignored this as well in order to cover up black crimes.

Ive ways wondered why there is a correlation between crime and the numbers of blacks in a community. Why should someone be called racist simply for observing this relationship? Hispanics have somewhat similar correlations although not as as severe. Put them together in a community and you'll see higher than average crime. That could be why cities like Orlando are so crime ridden.

His hate crime of running away from a pedophile with a gun that was stalking him.
Funny how the pedophile disregarded the directive of the police, chased after Martin, but Martin is guilty of the hate crime of defending himself.
You are like a broken record, stuck on the same worn out lie. There was no directive. The dispatcher was only concerned for Z's safety. George took his suggestion and stopped. You see, if there was any malicious intent, Z never would have called the police at all. Martin vanished into the darkness and could have gone home,called police or went to a neighbor's house if he was worried in the slightest bit. Z could not follow,chase or stalk the thug and even said the punk got away. Based on testimony from Martin's ignorant racist friend, it looks like Martin profiled Z as a white gay guy which was why he attacked him.

You are just too stupid and racist to accept the obvious.

It's hardly a wonder why every major American city has become crime ridden, it's because blacks are committing most of the crime.

Of course they won't even acknowledge it, let alone put forth solutions in the context of an honest deiscussion.

It's so much easier to blame whitey, and the police, and slavery, and greed than it is to actually make a serious effort to solve the problems that are causing this breakdown in our society.

It's called racism.

You're so stupid I'm beginning to feel sorry for you. Arial Castro is as white as Zimmerman. Which is not at all. Both Hispanics.

Why do you keep trying to stir up hatred for the white folks? Don't you know that it's our tax dollars that pays your way in life. Affirmative action scholarships, welfare, free cell phones, prisons!

You name it, white folks pay for it.

Such an idiot.
