Oh! Sorry, wrong state!

Is this memorial dedicated to criminals?

Well, the liberals have decided to deify Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman has been tried in the liberal kangaroo court, and been found guilty.

I fear we could see riots, after Zimmerman gets his trial. There are so many holes in the prosecution case, that I expect Zimmerman to be found not guilty, or a hung jury.

In those cases, the feral people who don’t understand how our justice system works, and who look for excuses for violence and mayhem, could spark a rerun of the Rodney King riots.

If a child of mine was an actual victim of murder (”killed unjustly”) and his/her name was on this memorial, I’d demand that it be removed. If that did not happen promptly, I’d pry it off myself.

Trayvon Martin’s people are incredibly sick and deluded to believe their beloved Trayvon is a “victim”—they’re deluded in the EXACT SAME sense as the family of the Boston Bombers.

The fact that Trayvon’s plaque is larger and upright bothers me..... was his life / death more significant?

This is how I felt when I saw this case on I.D. channel’s “Injustice Files”.

How is such determination of just or unjust to be made when no trial has occurred and no evidence presented?

This really irritated me, because I love this channel, but that particular program was a bunch of BS.

Maybe the prosecution needed somewhere to pray that the MSM’s portrayal of the case will somehow turn into real evidence.

So Tuesday is the hearing for several defense motions. Most of the case against Zimmerman. I don't know which motions if granted can cause the case to fall apart. So hard to tell fact from fiction in this. But that's why we have courts.

Headline News ( HLN ) will cover the hearing live starting at 9:00 AM.

Jury selection is scheduled for June 10 if this travesty goes forward.

Didn’t I read somewhere that Martin had stolen stuff in his backpack when shot?

Didn’t I read that some detective made that statement and said that he was ordered not to write it in his report?

The memorial was paid for and built by volunteers who wanted a proper memorial to remember local families seeking justice. Community members say neighbors hold the key to solving these cases by speaking up.

The race hustlers are attempting to make Trayvon Martin into the 21st century Emmitt Till. They need a martyr and Martin fills the bill. Justified or not, does not matter. If Zimmerman is by some odd chance aquitted or this thing ends in a mistrial, we can expect riots in the major cites with any substantial black population.
I fully expect the jury instructions to note this.

Now, in a new 41 page legal response, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is asking the appeals court to agree with the judge’s decision, and to not allow the defense to question Crump in a deposition.

The Sanford crime rate is much higher than the Florida average crime rate and is much higher than the national average crime rate.

I think you're correct.

A Trayvon Martin memorial is kind of like having an intersection of MLK Blvd & Central: when out of town folks see it, they know to lock their car doors and accelerate fast!

Families of real murder victims should protest and insist that their loved one be on the memorial. After all, is Trayvon the only *murder* victim? Why is Trayvon special and all the others aren’t? If they put all the names of murder victims on the wall it would quickly begin to look like the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

This could be a good way to stop this travesty since it would put the Trayvon supporters on the defensive. They would be the *bad guys* since they would have to explain why Trayvon is special but all the other murder victims are not special. Use the left’s tactics back on them, make them look like the bad guys. They don’t want to put the names of hundreds of murder victims on the memorial—why how insensitive of them.

It would be interesting if some of the names of the *unjustly* killed were gang members killed by other gang members. Who then would be the unjustly killed as opposed to the justly killed?

That was revealed early on, then the media and the lynch Zimmerman posse saddled up and what we have is the results of that. Zimmerman is being prosecutrd and persecuted because he has a “White” sounding last name and to discourage Whites from resisting attacks upon them by Blacks. If a Black individual decides they wish to kill,rob. or rape a White individual, the White Individual must comply. Or suffer George Zimmerman’s fate.

Organizers hope the memorial will lead to another step of healing for the Sanford community.

and taint enough potential jury members from the community to deny justice in the upcoming trial.

Obama is majorly complicit in the Zimmerman smear. The problem now is the fact that the Obama media has gone all in on a conviction; anything less will not be acceptable. A hung jury or even an acquittal will force the media to entice riots..

“Knowing that we can trust our community, police, law enforcement, judges, our community in general. We have to have some trust within that or otherwise, we’re going to have the same community incidents happening over and over again, so that’s what we want to band together for,” said Vince Taylor with the Florida Civil Rights Association.

And what incident would that be, Vince??? an unprovoked assault on a HOA volunteer by the gangsta wannabe with top billing on your memorial here that turned tragic for the assailant when his victim chose to defend himself.

“......Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is asking the appeals court to agree with the judge’s decision, and to not allow the defense to question Crump in a deposition....”
*******************************************************************
Is there something about Florida law that mandates the Attorney General to abet the prosecutors of a murder case. How many other murder cases are there in Florida where the AG is NOT intervening in support of the prosecutors when an issue is under appeal.

Maybe this is normal, but it looks really wierd from an out-of-stater.

I hope that you’ll remember this particular pearl of wisdom the next time a thug attacks you, has you on the ground and is bashing your head into the concrete—and, while battering you, notices your concealed weapon and goes for it while saying “you’re going to die”. If you ever find yourself in that situation, be sure to show your intelligence and that you are a better man than Zimmerman and refuse to draw and defend yourself—and let happen whatever fate unfolds for you.

And make sure you have pre-arrangements to have your tombstone engraved with the words—”Here Lies Napscoordinator; He was a Better Man than Zimmerman”.
