<quoted text>You have NO, Let me repeat, you have no proof or knowledge of what happened or how it happened. You are convicting him because the person killed was black, pure and simple. Hundreds of whites, hispanics and blacks are shot down every day in LA, Chicago, Minneapolis, NYC and many are innocent, but do we have the hoopla that we have here? NO, why, becasue Florida passed a law that liberalized the use of a weapon to protect ones self and the bleeding heart liberals are going to exploit this in an attempt to get the law changed.
I'm going to go on record to say if this Fat KILLER Zimmerman had been following my black 50 something year old hoodie wearing butt in my own neighborhood as I went about perfectly legitimate activities and he got close enough to me to lay hands on me, I would have done everything within my power stomp him into a bloody mess before he could kill me.

Trayvon was a 140Lb. kid and had no idea why this FAT 250LB. guy was pursuing/harassing him and defended himself so if this KILLER Zimmerman got a bloody nose and a bump on his head it PROVES Zimmerman was the provocateur AFTER BEING TOLD NOT TO FOLLOW Trayvon. The wrong guy died that rainy night

so in your twisted thinking you are saying its ok to attack a stalker if youre black and hes white but its not ok to defend yourself if somebody is beating the hell out of you and they are black. Got it buddy. I think we can all tell where youre coming from.
Trayvon was NOT stalking the FAT KILLER he was the one being stalked harassed and attempted to defend himself against a vigilante who singled him out and KILLED him. Dont attempt to twist my words you look even dumber than you already are!

Trayvon has NEVER been arrested for ANYTHING!

Sounds like Zimmerman went looking for trouble and we had found it, he needed a gun because he's a sorry-assed cream puff.

IF the so-called "stalker" gets close enough to touch you, he is not longer a stalker - he has become an attacker.

SO, YES it's okay - at least, ACCORDING TO FLORIDA'S "STAND YOUR GROUND" LAW!

All we know for absolute sure is,
George Zimmerman doesn't want to go to prison after killing an unarmed black teenager.
No, those angry black innocent convicts won't be very acceptable to his theology in Gainesville Max.
On the other hand we also know without a doubt, that there's a $10k bounty on him just outside his front door.
Therefore, we can deduct that Zimmerman in under house arrest waiting on his uncertain future, having nightmares about what's gonna happen to him once he is convicted.
And he will indeed be convicted.
What does all that gloating say about you and people who think like you do?

If he is, "indeed", convicted, then let it be through our courts by our laws, not by the court of public opinion and political opportunism.

If he was that much afraid of a 140 lbs kid that he outweighed by 100 pounds, he should have kept his sorry ass in the house and waited on the police.

Why should the "Court of Public Opinion" just shut up and let our youth be MURDERED at the hands of racist and bigoted police departments sit back and do nothing?

Those days are over my friend!

This unjust MURDER will not go unanswered! You can count on that!

The actions of other radical, violent, racist groups do not excuse the actions of any of them, Karl.

Of course it is not OK to kill an unarmed man. It is even OK for public outrage to bring attention to the matter.

What is NOT OK is for vigilante justice to be encouraged by public figures or at very least not discouraged. Obama needs to come out and say so, since he felt it was perfectly righteous to judge the situation and stir up more emotion when he didn't even have all the facts. That is WRONG.

So is this:

Paper: Spike Lee tweeted incorrect George Zimmerman address, possibly putting Sanford woman in danger
Published: 11:49 AM 03/27/2012

Filmmaker Spike Lee tweeted the wrong home address for George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Fla., man who many are claiming should be arrested for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin. The tweet could have potentially put the woman who actually lives at that address in danger.

The Washington Times’ Kerry Picket went to the address that Lee tweeted as members of the New Black Panther Party were offering a $10,000 cash reward for Zimmerman’s capture,“dead or alive,” and others were demanding his arrest.

“[T]he Edgewater Circle address Mr. Lee re-tweeted out is not part of the gated Retreat at Twin Lakes where the shooting took place and where Mr. Zimmerman lives,” Picket reported.“The area is not even a gated a community.”

“In fact, I took a drive to that Edgewater Circle address that so many on Twitter re-tweeted and cursed, and I discovered through a neighbor, named Tim, who lives across the street from the address, that not only does George Zimmerman not live at the lakeside house but a woman by the name of Elaine does,” Picket added.

Picket also said several news agencies have showed up at the address looking for Zimmerman, which – with the crowds the Panthers, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have whipped up into a frenzy – may have put the woman, Elaine, in danger.

It’s unclear specifically which news agencies trekked to the address Lee tweeted and why they failed to report Lee’s inaccuracy.

This report follows new revelations in the Martin case, including Zimmerman’s self-described membership in the Democratic Party, freshly surfaced tweets from Martin’s Twitter account, and Martin’s various suspensions from school."

Shameful behavior from people who should know better.

On one of the 911 tapes of Trayvon Martin’s Murder, the confessed killer George Zimmerman mutters a racial slur under his breath, according to Florida TV station WFTV. The alleged slur is “F--king Coons.”

So the FACT is this FAT Zimmerman Murderer is a racist! and was racially motivated!

BTW his mother is white and his father Hispanic.

Trayvon was threatened and defended himself (i.e.“stood his ground”), and because Trayvon successfully for a short time defended himself, Zimmerman MURDERED him.

A couple questions arise here:

1) Who does Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law apply to?

2) Who should feel more threatened.... an unarmed teenager being chased by a strange adult or an armed adult questioned by a youth who he just chased?

The answer is pretty simple unless of course you are a simpleton.

No, pal, I never said that people should do nothing in the face of injustice.

What I said was that the portrayal of the situation by those who have something to gain from this tragedy should not be the one that decides it's outcome.

Your prejudices have hijacked your brain.

No One has anything to gain from the MURDER of Trayvon the only positive that comes from this cowardly racist act of the FAT MURDERER Zimmerman is for the public to become aware and schooled on the state of affairs that every young person of color has to deal with in this society.

No One should be judged by what they wear and the pigment of their skin this is nothing but unadulterated racial profiling and is wrong.

I'm all for your suggestion. You should call Zimmerman and convince him to press charges on himself since those cops won't do it. The we can hear his story in details inside a courtroom then 12 strangers can decide if his story squares in their minds.

If it does, everybody is satisfied and he can go back to his neighborhood watch post. The bounty will be dropped. The Martin family will have peace. And most importantly, righties can stop blaming me and Al Sharpton for Zimmerman pulling a gun on a kid and shooting him down like a rabid dog.

Everybody wins!

BUT!--- I'd stress a sense of urgency since there is that little Black Panther issue just beyong his front door.
