Was the can empty or full? Opened or closed? An empty can is hardly a weapon, the weight is too light.
I never heard that Zimmerman claimed to have been hit by the bag of Skittles or the can of iced tea.

This thread is about race right? Your rosy picture of Dinkins's administration is stunning in it's deletion of the biggest criticism of Dinkins but predictable for a liberal race appeaser.
Here you go:

So embolden by this weak wristed mayor, Sharpton-wannabes attempted other boycotts: "What we want is respect"

Oh, Did I forget Crown Heights? Epic Failure.

As a father of 3 Korean-Americans living in Brooklyn at the time, I can tell you that Dinkens, by his lack of backbone or subtle encouragement of race baiting thugs colors race relations in NYC to this day.
Did Dinkins increase the size of the police department? Yes.
Did crime go down? Yes.
Did NYC debt go down? Yes.
That's not as bad as the picture Giuliani painted about Dinkins. He certainly wasn't great, but Giuliani benefited by the larger police department, Clinton's cops program, increased revenue, and lower debt that he inherited.

Your points are simplistic and debatable and honestly your whole demeanor is that of a racial sycophant. An appraisal of Dinkins's Administration without the racial aspect is akin to praising Mussolini for making the trains run on time.

From the Girgenti Report set up by Mario Cuomo, no enemy of Dinkins:
"Mayor Dinkins hesitated to deploy vast numbers of police to stop the rioting because he had been elected as a peacemaker. During the Crown Heights Riot, Dinkins stood on the stairs of a police temporary headquarters vehicle and addressed the several hundred police officers who were there for roll call. He stated the reason he had not allowed the police to stop the rioters was that "the community needed to be allowed to vent". He stated that he did not want the police to intercede too quickly to avoid escalating the rioter's behavior. However, this strategy proved disastrous."

Can you imagine what the reaction would be if President Clinton had said, "If I had (another) daughter, she'd look like Nichole" about the OJ Simpson murder?
What we let this clown get away with. Absurd.

Good read but those who have already decided he was a racist killer won't even bother looking.

Those facts are revealing. When people accuse Zimmerman of racial profiling can they not understand that young black men are the cause of racial profiling and not the people who are conditioned to be careful when that see a young black man when black crime is paraded on the news each and every day.

Unfortunately most people have already made their mind's up as to whether or not Zimmerman is guilty based on one sided reporting and the doctored 911 tape.The media looked to divid this country deeper along racial lines in the hope's that Americans would see Obama as the great uniter.

I never heard Trayvon parents say anything about race when a new black panther called us crackers and also put a a bounty out . I only heard they prayed for a peacfull protest, didn't ask to arrest the guy who threaten George with dead or alive for a million dollars> maybe I didn't hear that, maybe the media doctored that too? I believ Trayvon Parents need to stop telling their story and protesting the stand your ground law. I see they prayed for justice and still were upset when George apologized, and still received bail. Well bail is part of justice. Are they upset that their prayers's didn't come out like they wanted them to?
Maybe it's time a judge should put a cease a disorder on them about speaking about the case? It one thing to feel victimized, but to harass and annoy the world about how they feel it tirant. Other mothers lost their son, but you don't see them on a mothersday video. Let's put a federal cease and disist order on the parents and lawyers that are backing them. So proper justice can go forward.I wondered how they can do this when it looks like their son may of caused his own death? This is my opion and maybe she should complain to the mothers who lost their son in all the war? Maybe she should complain to Afganistan about their stand your ground law. I hope a judge put a gag order on them and makes them go to anger management. Just my opinion
