Another mark of how depraved our society has become, led by the Obamanation and his fellow racist hustlers.

People rescued by Zimmerman are basically in hiding and afraid to speak out.

I predict that by the end of summer, all this race-baiting stuff will soon be over and forgotten.

I’m sure they don’t want their tax returns audited and phone calls scrutinized...oh wait, that last one’s happening already.

I hope you’re right. However I think bammy’s found his wedge issue for the 2014 and 2016 election cycles. He’s gotta get the base and disaffecteds out to hold the senate. There’s nothing like a little race baitin’ to fire up the natives.

I am a lot more confident though it will pass and besides, when I seen pictures of some of the protests during the past weekend, the crowds were not hugh.

You could say I am right in this.

Yes. I agree.

I was almost afraid to come home to Florida from my trip, expecting my apartment in a 60% Black Neighborhood to be trashed or worse. (I had left my Dog, my Les Paul, and my Bass in the care of others for the two weeks i was away)

When I came home, my Black neighbors were happy to see me, said they had missed me, and my apartment, my dog, and my instruments were all intact. And not a mention of the Zim case at all whatsoever.

And this is South Broward county, very close to the area where TM went to school.

So, in effect, NORMAL working class Black people have no investment in TM. The ones involved in the protests are the same ones who will look for any excuse to riot.

Just my opinion, but one based on experience.

I am experiencing the same thing with at least one of the black individuals I work with EVERY day.

Granted, he is a bit older—mid 40’s—but he agrees with me that the prosecution was political and that SYG had nothing to do with the case.

He hasn’t come RIGHT out and said it, but his entire demeanor has been one that I agree with—Zimmerman was not guilty.

I do. They are cowards! I’d show up, armed to the teeth, with all the friends I can find and dare the Black Pampers or the “New Generation” to do anything. If they want a war, let’s show them what 60% of the population vs 15% looks like. Life isn’t like TV shows where there is 50/50 racial balance and all the white people are women and gay men!

I get the same impression. I'm up near the flea market in Webster. It's a biker hangout on Sundays and a car show every month. Some of the so-called "Crackas" have Confederate flags tied to their antennas and their are quite a few Black and Latino bikers and motorheads there. We just hang out, knock back some cold ones, engage in car and bike talk and we all get along just fine. Totally out of sync with the Justice Bros. agenda.

Yes.

No matter how small and insignificant the “protests” are, they will be reported as a mighty onslaught by the press which is actually the propaganda arm of the left.

Your friend at work is walking a thin line, because he probably has family members who are angry and bitter because they have drunk the Kool-Aid. His position is actually harder and more treacherous than yours or mine.

I do not really blame the rioters. They are merely sheep. But the “Fourth estate” has become, in the words of Dr. Savage, the “Fifth Column”. And they KNOW what they are doing. They are truly evil because they KNOW what the results of Communism and Totalitarianism are. Yet they continue in their lies. When we survive this (And I believe in my heart we WILL!), the Press and Media of these days will go down in shame and infamy for their compliance and advocacy of evil.

If they are planning on filing suit for exposing them ( remember Z was not mentioned on the police report) they must show the court that they have done nothing to encourage media attention

In any big city on any given summer night there are 30,000 people who pay tons of money to see a baseball game.

I have the baseball game rule on protest attendance: if there are less than 30,000 people who give a damn enough to show up for a protest, it is no more newsworthy than the nightly attendance at a Red Sox game.

Caught a glimpse of the freakish ABC Evening News. They implying that the rescue was fake and then they trashed Zimmerman for hiding while the Martin family was out in the open.

The old media is the enemy.

Isn’t it overstating the case a bit to say he “rescued” the people in the SUV? He did stop and call it in to 911, but from the recording of the call I heard it sounds like other people actually pulled the victims from the car while he was on the phone. I don’t mean to minimize it, and he certainly assisted... But to say he personally rescued them is perhaps a bit much.

Be a shame were any ABC News producers, their families and crews were to find themselves the target of "unsafe" situations or hurt in accidents. One wonders if they'd find broken bones or blood or worse "fake." Do they or don't they know what "terror" feels like? Or the sensation of their skulls pounded on concrete? I'm sure their experiences would be considered "fake" by most viewers whose intelligence they insult 24/7.

Yes. It is very quiet here in Florida. We Know the types of people involved in this case.

And most of us would LOVE a GZ type patrolling our condo complexes.

This is backfiring with blacks. Most are middle class people who are only casually affected by racist attitudes. They are increasingly angry at the race baiting coming from the media and the race mongers.

Depends on who is telling the story, and whose azz was on the line.

If you mean to say Zim wasn't wearing an "S" and red cape, well then, no, he didn't "rescue" them. Happy now?

You’ve got it backward. Others called 911. He and the gentleman he was with used their fire extinguisher and pulled the family out. He was not mentioned in police report because he didn’t see the accident

Middle class, yet 95% of them who voted AGAIN voted for the Racist-in-Chief.

That said, they have now managed to have made their very presence outside the City very conspicuous and themselves self-conscious. I watched a black couple walk in and out of a convenience store outside a gas station...and you could tell by their herky-jerky movements that they knew every eye was upon them. 0bama and the mob do them no favors.

I have read in a few places that the car was on fire. The image of pulling people out of a burning car is very different from pulling them out of rolled car. I don't know if it true as the lying media cannot be trusted at all.

By the end of the month the evidence hearing/ charges against the prosecution will be heard. There should be plenty of egg to cover many faces when it’s all laid on the table.

Sadly we are becoming more and more like pre WW11. Read the book Sarah’s Key to get a perspective on how people turned a blind eye to the atrocities that were happening to their neighbors in order to “protect” their families. I pray that this father decides that his legacy as a leader of the family is strong enough to just share the simple truth of what happened.
