I’ve never seen such a self-important group of losers in all my life. And I’ve lived quite a long time.

Cut into dust rags for cleaning the display cases that hold REAL artifacts.

Seriously... Martin’s hoodie, huh? Can we get more absurd?

Not "George shot Trayvon," or "Zimmerman shot Martin," but "Zimmerman" shot "Trayvon."

We see through your bias, Sentinel...you're not fooling anyone.

Trayvon Martin's hoodie

Maybe they could reprise mapplethorp's "piss Christ" and display it in a jar of urine. I'd be glad to contribute a couple of hundred ccs.

It’s as if no one has ever died in our nation before. We have 18 year olds fighting overseas and coming home dead, but somehow a kid who is kicked out of school, brandishes guns, does drugs, and generally was doing no good is elevated to this? Our nation is crumbling.

the MSM does not want to tell the low information voters know the mother has a different last name than the gang member father.

This is all about 2014.

Jackson is a money shakedown artist and is just being paid to keep the zombies on the reservation.

Trayvon didn't have a jury of his peers. Just ask the Rev. Jesse J.

It will be displayed like relics of obscure saints were in Medieval times. However, I do expect the blood stained hoodie to be taken out from time to time so the likes of Al Sharpton can wave it in front of crowds to whip up racial hatred.

You'll have to wait. It's not even scheduled to open until 2015.
