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
Hey CLOWN. One way to stem gun violence is to NOT slam someone’s head into a sidewalk...that’ll help guarantee that you won’t get shot by them.
Watch the other hand.
What a farce!
Compassion for a thug and gangsta, but no compassion for the person who really cared for his fellow man by trying to protect them....George Zimmerman.
“A” jury, not “The” jury. Civil will drain all $ from all Zimmerman dirty Jews and white hispanic family.
Take away guns.
Not, “come together as a nation”. No, we don’t want blacks and whites to get along, no, he as 0bama president doesn’t want to call himself a mixed race individual and heal the country.
This verdict was what he wanted.
I notice obama forgot to commend George Zimmerman for being a law abiding citizen who followed gun and all other laws, was a longtime Neighborhood Watch volunteer like thousands of other Americans.
Remember... if you see something, say something..right?
This guy is beyond belief! Why would I even remotely CONSIDER ‘honoring’ a punk who got what he deserved? Even his own DADDY was telling him, ‘You’re on the wrong path, Son; time to change course!’
Funny how 0bama’s ‘white half’ didn’t side with that white woman who was nearly beaten to death by a black thug a few weeks back!
How I loathe that POS. Completely and totally. Wish I could feel SORRY for him for being such an inept leader, a MANUFACTURED Manchurian Candidate, but I simply no longer care. I’m just hunkerin’ down, ridin’ the storm out.
Why wasn’t this call for peace issued last night before it became obvious that there would be no rioting?
“I know this case has elicited strong passions.”
Which you helped inflame.
They will wait next time to assure that the shooter is a white Euro instead of a white Hispanic. I don’t think I could despise this racist pos who’s presently occupying ‘the people’s house’ any more than I do.
Should be easy...don't attack a guy who is "packing". Dumb. Does this mean that "O" is going to invite Zimmerman to the White Hut for a beer?
“O” at first heard the name “Zimmerman”, and, of course, that was a “fat cracka” name. . but, he went off half cocked and gave an initial “speech” - then he discovered that Zimmerman was Hispanic. After that, he had to sort of shut up or risk alienating the Hispanic community that the Democrats are counting on to deliver them the golden goose, so which do you alienate - the blacks, or the Hispanics? ROCK, meet HARD PLACE, cause that’s where “O” is caught. -
Mr. President, you ask “We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this.”
Mr. President, you should make sure that the sons who look like the son you imagined are brought up decent and not gangsta.
“what the eff was gun violence?”
It was the lawful use of defending ones self from a black racist thug bent on killing or maiming the “cracker” who interrupted his peaceful night of thievery.
>Thats the way to HONOR Trayvon Martin.<
I will instead honor my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ; for providing strength and courage to the women serving on the jury. I will admit I didn't think they had the guts to do the right thing, but the Lord came through on their behalf.
SInce ZImmerman did not commit a crime, did he get his gun back?
The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America.
Sorry but can not allow you to get away with this. Please EXPLAIN how this was a tragedy for America? Thousands of American die every single day. Many are killed in some manner. This death while certainly a tragedy for those involved is a basic run of the mill death. A dumb arrogant kid who was a wannabe thug lifer pushed his luck in attacking an armed man and it cost him his life. In no way is this a tragedy for America except in that the race pimps and the MSM and the President tried to use to to score political points, make money and drive an agenda.
The pro M crowds are all about gun control, despite denials by Corey.
The pro M prosecution team is all bucking for federal jobs or jobs with anti-gun thinktanks imho. Also they all have lifetime tenured positions as lecturers in the BGI circuit.— building antipathy and racism via making a travesty of the legal system, by using the power of the state to harass an innocent man.
Obama is in essence exclusively supporting the BGI with his statement and continuing to divide our country.
Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago
Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago
Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago
Honor, gun violence?
Young wannabe gangbanger a victim of his actions. Exterminated before he could inseminate numerous illiterate Ho’s and burden society with the results.
Honor this Obama, you clown
In truth, he should have just kept his Effing mouth shut! This has noting to do with him any more than any other murder trial in the country.
So, why didn’t he name every other teenager who’s died violently since the Zimmerman incident? Don’t those folks count?
Yep! The way GZ was railroaded by the Just Us Dept. is the only real tragedy in this whole fiasco!
We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this
As long as young men, mostly black ones, believe the lie that the Thug Life is “cool”, they will end up like Trayvon........
or Trayvon Martin, either.
Don't launch a vicious and brutal attack on people on the sidewalk just because they happen to be crackas.
That would be a good start.
