Trayvon had no criminal record.
Zimmerman did.
Regardless of what Trayvon had done or what you think he had done, he did not deserve a death sentences at 17 years and 3 weeks of age.
Zimmerman is a gansta thug who had no right to get out of his truck. He had no right to kill Trayvon.
Nothing you can say will negate the fact that had Zimmerman stayed in his truck he would not have killed Trayvon.(Murdered according to the state of Florida.)
Yep. Absolutely Zazz!

<quoted text>Good work Christo!

Keep it up here, daily. People whom you reference here embarrass the entire white race. Thankfully, they represent only a very small, yet very cancerous portion of my race. I feel like I should apologize for their conduct, but I refuse to do so because I do not have any respect for them, which would otherwise move me to do so.

I am sorry that so many people are offended by such ignorance and hatred here and elsewhere. However,that is on them. I will not own that. Just remember what our good friends Martin (and Reverend Tindley) once told us in song, "We shall overcome...". Yes, we shall...all of us.
Martin said so many eye-opening things that we can use today. I like it when he said..."the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice."

I wonder how many out there who can appropriately apply that to this case.

Citizen, I try not to think that what a person says or writes or does is indicative of the entire race he or she is a member of.

So, there is no embarrassment to the White people, no more than is it an embarrassment to the Black people when someone of that race does something criminal or immoral or unethical.

It is more an embarrassment to humanity. So, no need for apologies. Every race has their share of evil ones foolish ones, criminal ones or nincompoops.

Let's take nincompoops (who are also fools)....

The Blacks have their Allen West, Alan Keyes and Clarence Thomas.

The Whites have their LL (Loudmouth Limbaugh), Sean "Nutty" Hannity and Ann "goofball" Coulter.

See, have nothing to do with race, just stupid people. Their manners cross racial lines.

But oh, how I often wonder, what would the world be like without them?

Ahhhh...the sounds of Blackberry Smoke. I should've known you'd like them.

They'll be near you with Lynyrd Skynyrd later this year in Miami. Maybe you should go see them. You might get a chance to talk to Charlie and Brit.

What shall your last weekday of freedom bring to you? I suggest a drive to the beach or shore.

Sabrina Fulton has filmed a PSA to be aired this Mother's Day.

Wonder if Captain Zimmerman will watch it.

It is very, very sad. Her voice is filled with emotion. Her first Mother's Day without her son.

We all know he was living for the chance to confront someone, that's why he carried a gun.

What terrible thing happened to you during your formative years of childhood? Where were your parents? Something went seriously wrong, didn't it? That is sad to me.

Surely you jest. If that hack job can dish it out, surely it can take it. That goes for you too.
You want someone to be nice to you, but you throw out all sorts of vile, racist, filthy trash? How long has your skull contained imbecilic thought mess as that?
Cry me a river if you don't like what I say. Is it free speech? I guess it's about as free as the stuff you write.
Go and check the constitution and see if it falls within the guidelines. I await with eager anticipation what your research reveals.

Yes and he got back into his truck. You can hear the door shut and the outside noises cease. Then he hung up so LE couldn't hear what he was doing and chased Trayvon down and killed him. Point plank shot to the chest, while poor Trayvon was begging for help.
He didn't know it was being recorded by 911 calls.
