I believe I caught up quite well, but thank you for your concern. And I certainly don't need, nor do I want, your forgiveness.

My opinion on what you posted still stands however. Some of your posts come off as racist, which was my point in posting what I did.

^Didn't take you long to drop the R-word.

Your opinion of me isn't up for debate as I support your right to believe as you wish. If you think I'm racist, that's your issue.

Now if you wish to actually address any point that I have made, which so far you haven't done, then I will be glad to have a conversation with you.

I may have missed those polls you are referring to but I do know that I myself disagree with the verdict and I am white. Also, I know that many of my friends and acquaintances who are mostly white also disagreed. Polls are quite easily slanted by where they are posted and by what political or media group. Long time political trick to get people to jump on their band wagon. It is effective because it is a human trait to want to belong to a majority group.

As for my comment on the prosecutors. I know they aren't goof balls after following other cases they have worked on. I think they were more vested in cases in their own jurisdiction. You know, like they really didn't want to be there but their boss made them.

I don't have an opinion about YOU. I don't know YOU. I addressed your post, which was pretty offensive.


Go ahead and support GZ all you want, that's on you. But his actions since he killed TM are pretty telling.

Expressing "offense" isn't addressing the point, it's giving opinion. Your offense has no bearing on the topic at hand.

I notice that some posters keep telling other posters what the topic should and shouldn't be. I'm thinking anyone who is writing about GZ's ongoing problems with the law and society in general, and general issues that surround those problems, is the topic.

All those donated funds were squandered away with O'Mara and West left on the hook for $2.5M and very surprised West showed up for his arraignment on this latest charge. I also believe whoever donated to him got bamboozled...

Just like OJ who claimed to have no money, he is still liable to the Goldman's for the wrongful death lawsuit they won..
You post, really shows you have a shocking lack of information about the whole situation.

Really, you should contact TM's family and enlighten them to the riches they will receive from suing an unemployed mooch as opposed to OJ simpson and how that will cover 50k or more in legal bills (easily).

Second, the star witness for the defense was....TM's girlfriend. That's why he was found NOT GUILTY which does NOT mean INNOCENT.

I am responding to your response to Amethyst...I can attest to her knowledge base of that trial and knowledge base of the "Whole Situation"...Trayvon's parents have moved on..They are working with other wrongfully killed kids..supporting their families..They have no desire to go after GZ..His activities and actions since released of charges is all on himself..NOT the parents of TM nor anybody else for that matter...I kind of wonder about your linking such a civil suit to OJ...That case too has already been dealt with long ago..appeals there went no where from OJ...

I say..sometimes the constant drum beat of blaming victims and their families for everything is wearing thin..as GZ has done nothing to evolve...IN fact it appears he is Imploding!!

The Jury has decided this. Zimmerman is innocent of the charges. Case closed.

Time to move on.
For once you are 100% correct. I certainly have provided nothing that says that Zimmerman attacked Martin because I have not claimed that he did. I am in no position to know who attacked whom and neither is anyone else unless there is an eyewitness who, to this day, goes uncovered by the prosecution or the defense. Zimmerman is a killer who has been found not guilty in the Martin case, certainly he is no innocent. Zimmerman seems to have a desire to continually open cases; I hope he doesn't kill someone else.
