Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release - July 14, 2013
The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. 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. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if were doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if were doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, thats a job for all of us. Thats the way to honor Trayvon Martin.
Exactly what I expected from the jerk.
Yes, we should honor a useless racist thug who assaulted Zimmerman and got shot for it. BLECH. Where’s the barf alert?
I think he realizes this is not the case he needs it to be. So, they’ll wait for another case where the police act stupidly and some white killed some innocent black kid. Incidentally, 93% of blacks are killed by other blacks. 85% of whites are killed by whites. 15% of whites are killed by “other.”
Well, since little barry bastard boy sent his smarter half out to try and destroy George Zimmerman regardless of the evidence, it is not surprising that the racist-in-chief never even mentions George Zimmerman and the wreck the obamao regime has made of his life. Disgusting puke in the white hut is being his usual self in a storm ...
Never let a manufactured “crisis” go to waste.
As expected, he’s lying again.
That’s my take on it too Skeeter.
The best way to honor Trayvon is to down a "Purple Drank" followed by a shot.
where’s the honor for George Zimmerman
Obama = Asshole.
what the eff was gun violence?
Good start, Mr. President.
I would go further.
Make sure there is no additional prosecution in this case.
This needs to be put to rest.
frickin’ coward won’t be recorded
Just can’t help himself.....
How about looking a couple of blocks from your own house in Chicago?
Until then, how about STFU?
His version of “gun violence” is bullcrap. It’s using a gun in legitimate self defense.
Great idea Barry. Get the feral urban utes under control and I guarantee the gun violence will drop. Oh? Not what you meant? Why not?
If they want to act like an escapee tribe of Raiders from Fallout 3, do not be shocked when they get treated as such in real life by their victims.
Gun violence? No words condemning the knockout game or thuggery in general? FUBO
