I don't know. Maybe you should go home and call the police. Then the gun nor the training come into play.

No mistake by the justice system at all. The mistake was made when Martin attacked Zimmerman and tried to kill him. There was more than enough evidence offered at trial supporting Zimmerman. NOT GUILTY. THE JURY GOT IT RIGHT.

In West Pensacola 5 black teenagers, beat, and chased a 77 year old white man. Too bad he didn't have a gun. He could have cleaned up a whole neighborhood. I bet he won't leave home without a gun from now on.

If the burglaries have indeed stopped, that certainly gives one pause for thought. Interesting.

So, where is the media feeding frenz over this recent murder???? When a black person is killed, it's news, and all the hucksters, as well as our president ty to use the tragedy for political purposes. Yet, when the vic is white, and the shooters are black...the silence is deafening. Again, I ask, since when did the death of a person of color become more of an outrage than the untimely death of a white person? No death is more important that the other, yet the media doesn't see it that way, and I am afraid that neither does our president. The change that has bee orchestrated by the current administraion is not healthy for the well-being of our diverse communities. This "me me" attitude better revert into a "we we" attitude before all heck breaks loose. In this instance, silence IS NOT golden. Evrybody needs to face the facts...bad people come in all colors.

No. They didn't. But that's the breaks. Our system is not perfect, but I still believe in it.

I'm not sure what anything Jessie Jackson did equates to the murder of a teenager, but if that's your comparison, so be it.
I don't feel sorry for his son and his wife. Those thieves got off light. We agree on that point.

<quoted text>Zimmerman broke no laws.

The jury decided it was self-defense and therefore declared him "Not guilty". He could not have been found not guilty by reason of defending his life if there wasn't a violent, potentially deadly crime being committed against him by the man he shot.

Your dead boy was committing a felony not Zman.
What felony?

Absolutely not true. He was committing no felony. You are now making shit up.

You have no basis for your arrogance. Now that Zimmerman has been found not guilty, you supporters think your hero is infallible.

Trayvon was just walking around when suddenly he decided to grab someone from behind, throw them to the ground, and bang their head on the sidewalk. No, Trayvon planned exactly what he was going to do, and was encouraged by his baby mama to do it. If any of this was untrue Eric Holder, and Trayvons' greedy parent's would have filed civil rights charges already.

Just lucky, we have a judicial system, here in America...where the JURY DECIDES FOR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY....

I believe even more since the jury got this right and an innocent man attacked by a thug has been acquitted.
