On Saturday about 300 teens got the chance to voice their opinion of the George Zimmerman trial at the first annual 'Teen Summit' at the Beulah Baptist Institutional Church in Tampa.

On Saturday about 300 teens got the chance to voice their opinion of the George Zimmerman trial at the first annual 'Teen Summit' at the Beulah Baptist Institutional Church in Tampa.

They discussed everything from clarification on the law to what self-defense means.

Many of the young people at the summit said they came out to the event because what happened to Trayvon Martin could’ve happened to them.

One teen said he wanted to find out more about Zimmerman’s acquittal.

“At first I didn’t get it. I didn’t understand the concept of it. And then once I looked into the case I saw that some things did make it seem not guilty and some things make it look like wow it looks like he’s guilty," said 16-year-old Bryan Walker.

Trayvon Martin family attorney, Natalie Jackson and other legal experts were on hand to answer many of the teens questions.

“It’s hurtful to a lot of black and brown children who are like what do we do. What did he do wrong. And I’m here to tell them he didn’t do anything wrong and you didn’t do anything wrong it is the perception we have to change with people,” Jackson said....

"What did he do wrong?"

Did ANYONE even MENTION that you shouldn't go around stealing from people, and when confronted, don't try to bash his skull into the pavement when he may be a CCW Permit Holder, and fight back?

Wrong color 2nddivvet. (Just guessin’ here of course.) I’m sure most of those in attendance understood that a white guy killed an innocent black altar boy for no reason. Exactly the same as the Emmett Till case. Just ask okra.

‘Trayvon Martin family attorney, Natalie Jackson and other legal experts were on hand to answer many of the teens questions.
Was there anyone from the other side of the “fence” invited or was this just a snow job?
I think Mark Omara and Don West would have may have balanced the, first annual ‘Teen Summit’ .
Was the Social Engineer, Jasmine Rand, in attendance? I need pictures.

Freakin’ communists. Always screwing with the heads of the young skulls full of mush. Somebody needs to go to jail. This is nothing but more hate aimed at America from the communists.

My first question is; Why ?

I have an idea ... let's get the kids discussing Saudi Arabian billionaires and their influence on young men ... probably their own classmates ... right there beside you, honey .... to commit violence against them.

These “churches” are nothing more than arms of the Democrat party. They are not even subtle anymore.

No doubt these people in attendance are all community organizers and wanna-be community organizers along with assorted Dem bureaucrats. How many of them are receiving our tax money for their “activism”. What a racket.

Sounds like a public service was performed, one that happens too rarely. Like the old public hangings on the courthouse square (done in Texas until the 1930's) where a concerned adult guardian could say "That could be you if you continue to be a little wanna-be thug."

Looks like Jackson’s working the chitlin circuit.

Wow, they must be pretty violent kids then. Do they usually attempt to murder someone who walks in their general direction for a block?

The thing that pisses me off most about this case is that Zimmerman is BROWN for god’s sake. Why do they keep saying white. When I see his mug, I don’t see white....I know hispanic immediately.

Does that mean that these church-going teens go around acting like thugs?

Just because you went to a meeting at a church doesn’t necessarily make you a church-goer.

Well, Mr. Zimmerman is about 1/4 black and I reckon he wouldn’t be welcome there.

Kids, your opinion on this case is worthless.

Study it, look at the law, and look at the transcripts of the case first.
