I'm going to guess that the race hustlers will tell you that the difference is that it took 40+ days for Zimmerman to be charged, and Lion will probably get 'justice' while Martin did not.

That's nonsense of course. No one outside FL would have heard of Zimmerman not being charged if the crime had been black on black, or black on white, or even if Zimmerman had a Hispanic last name. The only time that most of the national media care about black kids getting murdered is when a particular crime can be used to support the outdated and shameful idea that white people collectively and actively still seek to oppress black folks.

Well, Zimmerman was the only witness to the beginning of the confrontation, and there was another witness who testified to seeing Martin on top beating Zimmerman. Even if we didn't have the second witness, in the event that there is a lack of evidence, the court has to fall back to a presumption of innocence.

If you approach the situation with anything other than a positive attitude or outcome, you're just going to create more negativity. No ones trying to raise awareness of anything other than the fact that a white man killed a black kid.

Why not raise awareness of these so called "neighborhood watches". Why not question the laws of self defense. Why not consider better gun laws. Nothing good has or will come out of this case till people calm down about it.

From a black person's standpoint, it does look like racism but, then again, I hate to say that whenever we see anything against another black person I think most just scream "racist" automatically, like it's a reflex. I agree, to a point, that it was just self defense on both sides although, I'm more lenient towards Trayvon's. Still, my side doesn't matter, so why should I stress on it?



There was no self defense on Trayvon's part, he decided to turn around and attack a man who was doing his job as neighborhood watch by following a suspicious character and I don't know about you but some dude I've never seen walking around wearing his hood screams suspicious to me. That's not self defense, maybe if Zimmerman walked up and pulled his gun and shouted at the kid "Give me your money!" or was actually planning to cause Trayvon harm, then I would definitely be on Trayvon's side, but since that didn't happen and ZImmerman was the one who was attacked, I'm on his side. These people saying he be charged with murder or manslaughter is ridiculous, then everyone who has defended themselves with deadly force should be on trial for murder.

People, people...I knew this thread was gonna go to Hell within the first few pages of it.

Eh, I'm probably gonna get death threats for this, but I'm on Zimmerman's side. From what I heard, which mind you, I suck at hearing the right things, Travyon was not the innocent boy we all thought he was. This went from a neighborhood incident to a full blown racial war. All because of our country's media. Hooray for news networks.

I wish racism would just die like the ignorant percent of people in this world. We have no need for it, and if idiots would not reignite racial flames, racism would be a lot less prevalent today.

Actually I can. By your line of thinking, any words (fake words/ or sound effects) could be considered offensive.

That would mean anything at all could be construed as offensive for no good reason other than argument, but I changed it anyway to bring attention to a something else more on subject:

Why is case all over the news when there are real hate crimes going on and ignored.

I find it funny how everyone is claiming how Zimmerman acted in self-defense, but not Trayvon.


Given the info it appears that Zimmerman approached Trayvon out of suspicion. Trayvon attacked him and bashed Zimmerman's head into concrete. Zimmerman reacted in self defense by shooting him. Had zimmerman swung the first blow Trayvon would be in self defense, but the reports of what went on was that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman and Zimmerman shot him when he was pinned under and getting his head bashed by concrete. Trayvon could have been acting in self defense, but the reality is that we just don't know. Given the evidence there is no way that a jury could properly convict Zimmerman of wrongdoing, especially murder. Zimmerman was within his rights to shoot and defend himself. Trayvon was in the wrong for attacking him and bashing his head against concrete assuming that's how things played out (which is the likely course, but unproven, given the evidence).

This case is just mental masturbation for the sheep that want to forget Justice was dead long before this. besides its illegal to charge someone with the same crime twice, so your chance is over.

If the justice system was racist why does a black cop IN BOSTON get caught with terrorist type weapons get out on 1000$ bail ?http://rt.com/usa/boston-police-officer-explosives-arrested-031/

when a kid talking shit on facebook had to get a random donation of 500,000$ to make bail? http://www.gamespot.com/news/texas-teen-jailed-after-league-of-legends-argument-out-on-bail-6411365

our system is enforced on the average person not the average black person, is it possible we hold authority to too high of a standard?
(Not even going to bring up how screwed we have been by anything federal)

One kid died in a suspicious scenario. Honestly? I dont give a rats ass about this sort of thing. Its ONE person among billions. One ant gets the magnifying glass. People starve to death every day. People are sold as slaves every day and/or tortured. One man was shot and everyone puts on their outrage face and marches around in a hooded sweatshirt. What about Nazi concentration camps? Atomic Bombs? Genocide?

...This is why I say that I do not care. We have bigger things to worry about. You kids are in for a world of hurt when everything comes crashing down and you have to worry about your own hide.
