The National Bar Association will hold a news conference Monday in South Florida to discuss legal issues surrounding the George Zimmerman trial and the implications of the stand-your-ground law.

Trayvon Martin's parents, along with their attorney, Benjamin Crump, association President John E. Page and religious leaders will attend the news conference.

.
"The verdict," Page said in a statement. "says an unarmed college-bound Black teen can be profiled, stalked, confronted and killed by an armed neighborhood watchman with hollow tip point bullets.

This organization is: "the nation's oldest and largest association of African American lawyers and judges", its not the ABA.

So, Trayvon was now apparently "college-bound". Wow - who would have thought? The myth continues to expand...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

College Bound? Right. Sure. Uh-huh.

I could see Trayvon at college. Not enrolled of course. Just wandering around at night, with his Skittles and Arizona Tea, in the rain, looking in windows.

Makes. Perfect. Sense.

"college-bound" is a laugh ............. “The verdict,” Page said in a statement. “says an unarmed college-bound Black teen can be profiled, stalked, confronted and killed by an armed neighborhood watchman with hollow tip point bullets

"and" must be the acronym for jumping a man and trying to bash his face in the ground.

Such deception is breathtaking to behold. Sure looks like evil stirring things up from our lowest levels, with the results to match.

When I see how things have gone from gospel to gangsta rap, I'm reminded of something a teacher once said about music driving society, not the other way around.

I think that's interesting way of looking at it, but either way seems to work for the gospel to gangsta rap example.

Trayvon was a thin-skinned hothead who tried to kill a man for the nonexistent crime of following him. Poverty pimps like Jesse Jackson jumped on the case because liberal whites who wallow in guilt (beat me, beat me harder) types will drop major coin if hurt enough.

This is exactly how unsuspecting people end up worshipping and revering people Mumia al Jamal.

Someone tells them they are important.

But Mumia and Trayvon are not to be looked up to.

You know, seriously, Obama has whipsawed this country into a racial frenzy.

This week Rush and Glenn Beck discussed a poll that says before Bambi took office a huge percentage of Blacks and Whites thought racial relations had gotten a lot better and were doing OK. Now it has dropped to half those levels in only 5 years under O’s thumb.

The animosity stirred up will take another few generations to heal, unless it is a plank of the Dem party to start a race war.

How can Blacks hope to “win” that? Yes, they are good at killing innocent kids and old people and other just out for a walk. But ifs they create militarization (e.g. Charles Bronson? Clint Eastwood?) in the White communiry as well as the Hispanic community which they are also pissing off, do they really expect to win? Win what?

Obama is the most divisive, racist, person to ever hold high office and the media is right there with him. Blood is on their hands.

Elite liberals are sicko...

And Chris Matthews? He apologized to two upper class blacks who had never lived in a 'hood a day in their lives... guess Matthews doesn't know the difference - all he sees is black skin.(is that insulting or what?)

In the mean time a good man like Zimmerman had his life ruined... because of some black six foot tall thug who acted like a thug, walked like a thug, robbed people like a thug - but was OH SO offended when someone thought he was a thug.

The verdict, Page said in a statement, says an unarmed college-bound (irrelevant statement not in evidence) Black (irrelevant) teen (irrelevant) can be profiled (empty assertion), stalked (empty assertion), confronted (all evidence contradicts this) and killed (you betcha) by an armed neighborhood watchman (fantastic) with hollow tip point bullets (would FMJ or wad cutters have been better?).

And a woman with four children can be working the third shift in a hot bakery and three black teenagers, out on bond with extensive rap sheets wearing hoodies can profile, stalk, break in, corner her and shoot her to death.

College bound?

Yes, St Trayvon was going to bypass high school graduation and go directly to college. That is why he had missed 53 days of school that year.

Isn't it obvious?

I believe that a lot of black America does not know that they are only 12% of society. They see things through the lens of black/white and assume that they are 50% of the population. The violent lunatic fringe talks about killing all of the white devils--unfortunately that fringe is spreading. But if you believe that you are half the population, killing the other half is not so far-fetched if killing is your habit.

I lived through the urban uprisings of the 1960s when there were times when most American cities were burning all at once. I never imagined I would be thinking in terms of of free-for-all genocide, but that is what the far fringe wants.

I think in honor of the SYG protests, they should air the movie ‘DJANGO UNLEASED’ on TV that weekend.

Everyone seems to have forgotten about DJANGO.

When are these ignorant jacka$$es going to learn that the Zimmerman case was not a “Stand Your Ground” issue. The defense stated from the beginning that it was a case that involved self defense with Zimmerman fearing for his life. Stand your ground is an entirely different set of circumstances.

No, the verdict says that the prosecution did not prove its case that the defendant committed the crimes he was charged with beyond a reasonable doubt - and they did not - in fact, not even anywhere close. There was virtually no evidence to support their case. There is also absolutely no evidence of profiling or stocking, but there was considerable evidence which strongly suggested the defendant fired the shot after being repeatedly assaulted, including suffering a broken nose and having his head bashed into concrete more than once (indeed, the only eye witness said Martin was on top of Zimmerman). It's a sad, tragic situation, but you don't convict people of crimes there is no evidence for. The most he should have been charged with even stretching the case as far you could and assuming the most with flimsy evidence presented would have been involuntary manslaughter - and it is highly doubtful he would have been convicted even with that lesser charge with the evidence that existed. There was never sufficient evidence to justify this case to be prosecuted to begin with as the initial prosecutor assigned the case concluded.

Alan Dershowitz analyzes the Zimmerman verdict (certainly no conservative)

The press and the narrative they are creating is very disturbing...are they trying to condition people who will serve on juries to just convict every defendant because they feel bad about situations just to please the press and the powers that be?

Between affirmative action, Harvard alumni legacy entitlement for Obama's (if he had a) son, Trayvon might have also benefitted from his presidential-pseudo-daddy's 'Indonesian' foreign student designation so that he wouldn't have to prove he could write anything (in script?) for Harvard's law review either. Easy, peasy diploma mill for agrieved entitlement mongers.

It’s a completely dishonest narrative - trying to make it seem as though evidence existed to convict him but he just got off on a technicality due to the “Stand Your Ground” law - which has nothing to do with the fact that the prosecution did not come anywhere near proving their case and there was virtually no evidence to support it, and that is the case if the “stand your ground” law did not exist and the right to self defense is not something that requires codification.

They KNOW this, but their goal is to make it impossible to defend yourself even if the law exists because of fear of being persecuted by the race mob if you do, effectively ending the 2nd amendment even if it still exists. Watch for more and more whites to be brought up on charges in self defense or SYG shootings if the person they shoot/kill is non-white. Police and DA’s around the country got the message to arrest and charge whitey now because it’s easier than dealing with the politics of the mob.

What a lying sack of crap. No evidence was presented that showed Martin was profiled or stalked. Evidence was presented that proved Martin attacked Zimmerman and Zimmerman in fear for his life defended himself. Which also has nothing to do with Stand Your Ground. We have always has the right to defend ourselves. What do the bullets have to do with anything? These people (lawyers) are creeps just looking to stir trouble
