President Barack Obama urged Americans to keep calm in the wake of Saturday's jury verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty of charges associated with the controversial shooting death of black teen Trayvon Martin.
"I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher," Obama said Sunday in a statement. "But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son."

That’s a much better statement than I would have expected.
Kind of worrying when you consider how Obama traditionally behaves.
Say one thing and do another.
Calling for gun control ..... again ?
“But we are a nation of laws...”
I’m surprised he didn’t bleed from the mouth when he said this.
Good. For once, he said something intelligent...and for once, I am in agreement with what he said.
A note on the bottom of he link said Zimmerman has filed suit against NBC Universal. VERY good.
Meanwhile Soetoro has ordered Holder to release the krackens.
Exactly. He may say this publicly but he’s probably working behind the scenes with other racists, especially those in the Just Us Department, to charge GZ with civil rights abuses.
Ummm, no. “A jury has spoken” rather than “THE jury has spoken.” Hussein has instructed Holder to bring Zimmerman up on federal charges.
Obama’s still in mourning over his imaginary son
Dude, his proxies, like Harry Reid, are saying what’s on Obunga’s mind!
Release the creepy-ass crackers!
“We are a nation of laws...”
You wouldn’t know it, by his hand...
Clearly hinting at an impending federal "civil rights" prosecution.
Jarrett probably wrote that because he’s too stupid to know what to say without getting himself in a pickle. Wonder if there were any more robberies at the gated community after Trayvon got shot?
“A jury”. Exactly. Implying more than one to speak.
Don't forget his army of Flying Monkeys.
