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.

Jacknhoo: Conclusive evidence that Santorum supporters have significant cognitive deficits...
The kid is dead because he was trained to have a chip on his shoulder, and he chose to relentlessly beat a neighborhood watch capitan that was doing what his neighbors wanted him to do.
You are a loose cannon jerk.
there are no facts to support your post.
Problems with authority figures, have you? Might be prudent to wait for the facts.
By the way, do you live in a neighborhood where people break in and take whatever they want. Self-governance is hard for some to align with. Based on the 911 call, Zimmerman was protecting his and his neighbors property, even to the point of trying to work with the police to do it.
Ping “He wasnt pursuing him. He had broken off any pursuit BEFORE he was attacked by martin.”
“He OBEYED the request if the 911 operator.”
no facts support you
I believe you may be slightly over-reacting...is that you, George Zimmerman?
Certainly a teachable moment, definately several miscalculated leaps..... and absolutely an attempt to pander to the left and the leftist media.
No facts support waht, be specific here.
Your long harangue is an admission that you know Santorum screwed up, you’re embarrassed, and you’re trying to divert attention.
Santorum is basically a puss who can be rolled by the MSM every time. Deal with it.
The most disturbing aspect, of controversies regarding race, is that they expose the most rabid of lunatics regardless of perspective!
I don't because Santorum is the only one that can stop Romney at this point from gaining enough delegates to win the nomination.
That being said, Rick seems to be commenting without knowing all the facts in the case. The only comments he ought to be making are about how Obama and the left are trying to stir racial tensions for political gain.
Nothing hateful in my post and I rant about nothing.
I say bring it on mofos.
I suppose. And even for self-appointed busybodies. But, even though they say they are never off duty, the fact is, they are off duty for more hours in a week than they are on duty. One sees that in reports from time to time, "an off duty police officer ..."
Doesn't make any difference to analysis of this incident - Zimmerman is not a deputy. He's got the same rights and duties as any other citizen. My only point was that at that moment, he wasn't preoccupying himself with neighborhood surveillance.
Santorum has a foolish uninformed opinion.
We do not need a punk that acts and speaks based on uninformed opinion in the White House; we already have one of those.
Santorum has publicly sided with the Alinskyites, and against an inocent man.
You are a deranged ‘Rick’ supporter.
Zimmerman had no right to be chasing Treyvon down - that is not in the neighborhood watch handbook.
