Little details except for some nervous looking school official, obviously terrified to call these kids truants....he just said something like "So many people are upset about this tragedy, they are looking for different ways to grieve."....that is NOT a real quote, just a paraphrase.

Again, not mentioned were George Zimmerman's injuries and witness accounts of Mr. Martin being on top of Mr. Zimmerman and punching him were also ignored.

Way to go, geniuses ... that’ll un-shoot him, you betcha!

Anyone who skips school to protest anything other than the fact that the school is a Marxist hellhole swindle should be expelled.

“Hey, let’s boycott the school” is an idea that would spread like wildfire among the students, especially if they got the idea that it would be an impromptu holiday supported by the powers that be.

Yup, the field of education has lost a lot with these “students” walking out.

Why not just let them go straight to jail...which is where they’re gonna end up anyway?

Be sure to provide them with an IPOD and some (c)rap selections.

Close down the school, fire the teachers, and return the money to the taxpayers.

Then let the protestors eat cake.

The IQ of the school just doubled. I remember the city folk left to go see Malcolm X the movie. It was the best day of school ever.

Pretty cool for a teenager to protest for a cause - especially when it allows you to skip class!

I’d be more impressed if their protest caused them to stay longer at school...

That’s what I was thinking. They should boycott government schools to protest the quality of government schools.

I was part of a walk out for our beloved HS principal who was unjustly fired by the corrupt school system in Atlanta.

It got local news, and a helicopter flew over as we spelled out his name in human letters.

That being said, I’m no fan of vigilante justice. But IMO if this had been a white boy killed I doubt we’d be hearing as much about it.

So, where were the protests when the white kid was burned alive?

Or when the young white couple were gang raped and murdered by six black thugs?

I’m guessing that the barbaric little thug picked on the wrong kid.

It’s a nice spring day.

Kids will look for ANY reason to skip school.

A phony outrage over some kid they never heard of?? Sure! Lets protest!

Check the nearest mall or movie theater- Guaranteed that’s where they went to “mourn and protest the social injustice”.

Anytime students leave a school in a “boycott” its laughable.. I don’t think every kid that does it does not have true intentions, but for every 1 that does, there are 40-50 who just are enjoying cutting class.

My prediction:

Zimmerman will be found innocent when the FACTS are investigated. Once the FACTS are know the MSM will go completely quiet. The race baiters will move on to their next assignment.

That would fall under my "school is a Marxist hellhole" exception, as "the district is trying to ruin the school when it might have been slightly okay."

I'm a fan of self-defense, but I don't know enough about the particular situation to reach a conclusion. However, I'm a bigger fan of common sense, which says that students skipping school will do absolutely nothing to un-dead the dead person, or to evaluate the facts so that the proper authorities can reach a correct conclusion on what to do going forward.

I dunno. The last time that sort of thing happened, Watts burned and Reginald Denny became a household name.

Our enemies are practicing various tactics.

Remember last year when a lot of flash mobs appeared and robbed stores?
Remember the OWS crowds in many major cities?
Now see how national outrage can be ginned up over a small incident which may quite likely be justified self-defense?

All of these tactics can be useful if the Power Elite need a crisis either leading up to a November election, or perhaps a crisis subsequent to a heart-breaking Nov election loss.

The political manipulators need to make sure they know how the buttons can be pushed. They are testing the machine.

Nope! Should Zimmerman be found not guilty when the facts are presented, Holder’s goons will grab him on some trumped up charge. He is about to learn that you don’t mess with a protected spieces.The hard way. If the dead guy had been White, the case would be closed by now.

The only legitimate purpose of a walkout is to provide attention to a potentially unjust situation.

This story has way too much attention as it is.

To them it’s all about ‘skin’ color, and nothing else. If there’s a crime that’s been committed, then let the local authorities investigate and prosecute if they have enough evidence.

What about all the black people that are getting killed DAILY by other black people in Philadelphia, Chicago, New York?

Are they doing anything for their lost lives?

Are they out marching for their lost lives?

Are they yelling for their lost lives?

They are hypocrites!

Where ARE they mentioned? Do you have a source? From all I've read, Mr. Z was going about his amateur police business; and followed, accosted and killed an unarmed young man without any compelling reason. Which at best is negligent homicide.

The reporters are forgetting their youth. What student, given the chance, will not use any excuse to not attend classes. I’m old, but I remember my High School day. I can just see the conversation. “We’re walking out cause of that guy that got shot!” “What was his name?” “I dunno, but lets go!” “Okay, see you at the mall.” I’m sure some feel strongly about it, but how many really know what it is about?

Zimmerman would have been better off had he been arrested. Now the entire police department will be dismantled, and he will be at the whim of the DOJ, who will throw the “civil rights violation” book at him. He may end up in the Federal pen for 10+ yrs when this is all said and done.

Some idiot (adult - in a preacher-like suit) was walking around in Decatur, Alabama yesterday in an apparent attempt to stir up people about this. People are losing their minds and looking for cameras to rant in front of... and yeah, the local ABC affiliate was there.
