Are you personally involved?

I confronted a thief once- in a big city- at midnight- I scared him off because of what I SAID- not my weapon- maybe people don't know how de-escalate a bad situation?

Well......

The jury felt differently about this after hearing ALL the evidence. That is the only decision that matters. Case closed.

Zimmerman wasn't on trial for being a saint for the rest of his life. People can continue to rant on about him, but it's not going to change the fact that he was found not-guilty, hence innocent, of murder.

He had every right to exist; skin color does not affect that right.


You really should stop equating "black" with "victim." In fact, "black" shouldn't be equated with "victim" or "perpetrator." Each situation should be evaluated based upon the facts, sans assumptions and prejudices.
You equate "black" with "thug."

The only thug in this incident was George Zimmerman.

That describes the majority of 17-year-old kids.

There has been, on this thread and others, on this subforum and others, on this forum and others, and in other venues, a large contingent of people who have openly celebrated the death of Trayvon Martin. I do not feel any regrets about my description of them as racist savages.

Wrong. It describes 17 year olds who act like animals ... most 17 year olds would rather be left alone.
