Which image? The real one or the one the media is trying to create?

His image? 14% of the population is doing nearly 50% of the crime. I shed my white guilt long ago.

That jerk’s image is trash.

Indeed, he could have been the Obamadork’s son.

Blacks are 12.7%. Black males 18-35 are around 4%. So it’s more like 4% committing half of the violent crime.

If you trim the small children, the over 45 and women off that, you have about 2-3% of the population committing 50% of the crimes.

We’ve seen the image, and we can draw conclusions just like anyone can. I have yet to see the racial aspect of it. I’m sure Zimmerman past the lie detector test, otherwise the Prosecution would be going for murder 1.

The trial is not about Trayvon. It is about Zimmerman. This family is making it about Trayvon. If the prosecuting attorney were to somehow try to make it about Trayvon, Zimmerman would walk. For one thing, the statement by the POTUS, that Trayvon could be his son, is prejudicial and were it to be found to influence the outcome of this trial, would result in a mistrial and possibly a dismissal with prejudice. We cannot have such nonsense affecting the outcomes of our trials.

Try 77% of violent crime. Where is the "black guilt"?

They sued the housing association and got 1 million+ ........................An out of court settlement, with a deep pocket defendant? Interesting. What was the cause of action, wrongful death? I guess the defense council figured Zimmerman should have stayed down and got his head smashed in by someone who really showed his own hateful side. This case is going to be front page news nationwide. Think this country is divided now? Wait!

Yet the media and Trayvon’s parents have NO problem trashing Zimmerman’s image
