Skip to comments.Santorum: Zimmerman ‘has a very sick mind,’ motive ‘a malicious one’
Posted on 03/25/2012 10:22:54 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
On Sundays Face the Nation on CBS, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum explained that his view of the Trayvon Martin shooting differed significantly from the one held by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Gingrich was critical of President Barack Obamas reaction, but Santorum placed the blame on accused shooter George Zimmermans mental state.
Well, you know, obviously, Im not privy to whats going on in someones mind, Santorum said. Obviously, in my opinion, someone
has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this. This is clearly a heinous act. You know, there are a lot of people who have a lot of distorted views of reality. Its a tragic, tragic case. And my heart goes out to the parents, too. I cant imagine what theyre suffering, losing their son in such a horrific way. All I would say is that, whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one, and a very, very tragic one.

Rick’s really been on a roll with the dumbass statements the past few weeks.
He was "off (voluntary) duty" when he saw Trayvon. Zimmerman was also on his way either home or to an errand.
I don't have any issues with him having suspicion. In the tape of him speaking with police dispatch, there is a period of what seems 15-30 seconds where Trayvon is aware he is being watched, and his reaction (according to what Zimmerman says) is to stare at Zimmerman. All this while Zimmerman is sitting in his vehicle. Then Trayvon takes off at a run.
If that sort of thing was going on in my quiet neighborhood, I'd be suspicious too. Burglaries aren't quite as frequent here, but they do occur.
Did you like Newt's response?
We have been brainwashed to disregard Gingrich since Florida, because he is the only one representing us properly.
It appears that both Mitt, and ‘Eddie’ Santorum are setting up an Obama victory deliberately.
He wasn’t pursuing him. He had broken off any pursuit BEFORE he was attacked by martin.
He OBEYED the request if the 911 operator.
LISTEN to the 911 call, Rick.
EDUCATE yourself before you speak.
>> “Damn it Rick. Cant you just shut up until the facts are in?” <<
Plenty of facts are in, and he is ignoring them in order to pander to the racists.
does Santorum need to quit the race, or WHAT??? Holy crap is he a brain dead idiot.
Ha. Don't forget, this is the guy who told us he has had special communications from God telling him to run for president. Maybe he has other special powers beyond us mere mortals.
“Zimmerman had no right to be pursuing this kid. This kid had an iced tea and skittles. Zimmerman was not even registered as an official neighborhood watchman.
The guy stalked this kid down and killed him. That is malicious and disturbed.”
According to the eye witnesses, that’s not what happened. I’m glad we have neighborhood watch people in our neighborhood. The guy tried to call the police to take care of it. That much is documented.
Ricky, pandering to the media is no way to run a campaign. You are not presidential material.
“Santorum proves himself to be an easily-stampeded tool”
I have said many times Rick is not ready to be POTUS. Newt is the better choice. It appears to be to late now. Just a sad, sad situation.
HA! Dem Dream Ticket!
this asshole is constantly saying crap....NO FACTS....just BS....just wait until the truth comes out....Ricky has reacted just like bambi...talking crap without proof..... is going to really hurt him with conservatives that care about facts.......
and all these pictures of Martin as a young kid....where are the recent 6’2” in footballer
Santorum just shot off his loud mouth.
Yeah, those Skittles they’re REAL DANGEROUS! The man was unarmed...Zimmerman was told NOT TO FOLLOW him. He followed him.
Treyvon’s girlfriend was on the phone with him when Zimmerman, DISOBEYED the 911 OFFICER’s request that he meet the cops by the mailboxes, and went after the kid.
IS THAT YOU, NEWT?
Next, Santorum will offer to lead the Black Panther lynch mob in “kidnapping” Zimmerman.
Santorum will win the $10,000 reward but donate that to a moslem anti-porn charity.
Hey Santorum, they’ve taken our houses, our jobs, our schools, our medical decisions..... Porn is all we’ve got left!
