Skip to comments.Mike Tyson: It's a Disgrace George Zimmerman Hasn't Been Shot

Heavyweight boxing icon Mike Tyson thinks it's disgraceful that George Zimmerman "hasn't been shot yet" or "dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away." In other words, the U.S. justice system, and in turn, the U.S. Constitution, is a disgrace.
Tyson made his assertion during an interview with Yahoo News. Asked for his view on the Trayvon Martin case, he averred: I wasnt there, I dont know what happened. But its just so widespread and overt what happened.
He just countered his own assertion. He wasn't there, he doesn't know what happened. But because it's "widespread" -- meaning, the media is obsessed with the story -- it's veritable that Zimmerman unconditionally shot and killed Trayvon Martin? OK.
Here's an excerpt of his remarks:
This isn't any better than the New Black Panther Party calling for a bounty on Zimmerman's head. He should relocate to Iran, or maybe China. I'm sure he'd be singing a different tune.
My personal feeling is that, as a young kid that was beat on by a bully, that was pretty much singled outthe guy [Zimmerman] stalked him, didnt follow instructions from a superior officer, when they said, Stop following the kid. That tells you everything right there. But my all-around perspective, I wasnt there, I dont know what happened. But its just so widespread and overt what happened. Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages. Its a majority versus a minority. Thats the way God planned it. He didnt want to do something about it, He wanted us to do something about it. And if we dont, its gonna stay this way. We have to continue tweeting, we have to continue marching, we have to continue fighting for Trayvon Martin. If thats not the case, he was killed in vain, and were just waiting for it to happen to our children. Hell have gotten away with impunity. Its a disgrace that man hasnt been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. Thats the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. Its a disgrace that man hasnt been shot yet. Forget about him being arrestedthe fact that he hasnt been shot yet is a disgrace. Thats how I feel personally about it.
...or at least had his ear chewed off?
A monument to ignorance.
Negative number I.Q.
says the convicted rapist. Hey Mike, what kind of bird don’t fly?
If you took Tyson’s brain & put it in a bird.....it would fly backwards.
It’s not like he beat up Robin Givens or anything.
What a coincidence! Heavyweight boxing icon Mike Tyson thinks is disgraceful!!
Is Mike an honorary member of the New BlacKKK Pampers?
He has a future in politics. Democrat, of course.
I’m so thankful Prof. Tyson took time out of his busy day to rain such pearls of widsom upon us. Someone should collect, categorize, and publish such insightful commentary so that mankind throughout the ages will surely benefit....
Tyson has one thing over some folks.
To my knowledge, he’s not a blog pimp. (Now how many threads have you posted here on FR without ever responding to a comment?)
I wonder if he was so dismissive of due process when he was arrested?
What do we expect from a lousy sportsman that violates sport ethics by chewing off the ear of a boxing opponent?
Thank God...now that I’ve heard from such a fine, up-standing model American, I know how I’m supposed to feel about this case. /s (X1000)
If zero had a son he would look just like Mikey.
Tyson’s brain has been scrambled from too many blows to the head in the ring.
Of course, I’m assuming he had a brain to begin with.
