Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Tuesday called the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin a "murder" and the result of racial profiling.
"I tell my son, you have to be careful (wearing) a hoodie," Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat who is black, said at a House briefing. "Trayvon was murdered for walking while black in a gated community."
Martin's parents also spoke at the House Judiciary Committee briefing on hate crimes and racial profiling. Organized by House Democrats, the briefing brought the heated national debate over Martin's death and the handling of the shooter to the halls of Congress for the first time.

“Zimmerman better start suing all these wealthy public figures that are lying “
That’s why these lying cowardly Dems (but I repeat myself) did this where they’d have congressional immunity.
That should be the focus of the coverage of these minority party dog and pony shows: they’re a chance to lie.
Yes but only if the additional people were white, because that would upset the racial balance on Guam, causing the island to capsize. You know, science is complicated.
Sure, deflect from the real issues facing this country. My question is: When are the Latino’s going to protest?
Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is afraid that the U.S. Territory of Guam is going to "tip over and capsize" due to overpopulation.
What is so hard about staying quiet until the facts are all in? I learned years ago to WAIT and not impulsively weigh in on these many “scandalettes”. Sure it’s difficult, but acting adult is difficult.
Many of our prominent conservatives jumped in with loud remarks blaming Zimmerman for being a racist cold blooded stalker. Funny how time reveals facts not first seen.
Now we are seeing just why the police didn’t detain Zimmerman. They had the obvious physical evidence, a story backed up by an eye witness, and a clearly distraught and injured neighborhood watch citizen.
This Zimmerman/Martin scandal may end up like the Duke Lacrosse scandal. A big embarrassment for those who just couldn’t wait to chime in.
With any luck in November. The more they attack Zimmerman, the more it alienates the Hispanics. Hopefully it’s enough to cause a swing in the vote.
That the Admiral was politically correct in his response and did not point out that this moron did not know WTF he was talking about pisses me off more than this idiot congressman.
