Like someone told me way back in the mid 60’s:

“DON’T GIVE ME ANY FACTS, MY MIND IS MADE UP!”

Yup. It’s called damage control. There is more out there, and even these leftist hacks realize they’d better start trying to salvage what’s left of their credibility before it’s too late. Of course, it already is...

There won’t be any trial, except if Zimmerman decides to file civil actions for defamation. The facts are too clear, and no prosecutor is going to risk taking the absolute loser of a case, and well, losing it...

Part of Charles Manson’s lunatic ravings called for a race war, and someone in Obama’s neighborhood said “Dig it!” when hearing of Manson’s crimes. That neighbor was Bernadine Dohrn. The Left wants a race war, and it wants one badly.

If the media can incite riots,which they can,it’s just one more story to cover. Making the news.

Do they have to get in front of a jury? The government can sit down with him and say we’re going after you for this and this unless you plead to that. Then it becomes a game of chicken.

.

While the Zimmerman/Martin ‘white’ on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just last week?

The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.

The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
(She was most likely gang raped numerous times...but we will never know for sure)

Both the husband and wife were weak, having just gotten over the flu.

.

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?

85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??

Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage?

Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?

Where is the outrage?

I'm not so sure about that.

Nothing is going to do more to get undecided white middle-class voters to vote against Obama than the image of some kind of New Black Panthers mutant on television telling people that he "doesn't obey the white man's law."

If these race-baiting morons play their cards this way, 2012 may turn into 1968 all over again. That was the year Lyndon Johnson decided not to run for re-election because he knew he'd lose even to a steaming pile of sh!t.

The terms White Hispanic and White Non-Hispanic are contained in the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting system. Each police department makes an annual report to the FBI describing victims and perpetrators as such. They also use Black Hispanic and Black Non-Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, etc.

And according to some: they lightened Martin’s photos to make him look whiter and, therefore, according to libs, less threatening, lol. As usual, racists calling other people racists.

Lawyers for Martin's family say it was Martin

Before the family lawyered up, Martin's FATHER said it wasn't his son.

His mother is Peruvian and his father is a Jew.

His father was a local magistrate and Zimmerman has been Catholic All his life. He was an alter-boy.

Zimmerman is also a German name, thought there has been some disagreement as to whether is means 'carpenter' or 'innkeeper'.

His mother is Peruvian. Although you'd have to ask a Peruvian as to whether or not thy consider themselves Hispanic.

Some folks from Latin America object to it.

Sounds like Zimmerman deserves a medal. Though I imagine he is just happy to have survived the encounter. A concealed carry success story.

I for one do not feel that you need to apologize to me we just interpreted what info there was differently. When you received more info you changed your tune. Many here realize that the media always spins things so that it looks good for their cause. We should take all the info from the media with a big grain of salt.

If he’s even a little bit White, he is guilty because Whites used to hold Blacks as slaves before the Civil War.

Right?

Peruvian is close enough to White to call him White and therefor guilty.

They are. On an ABC radio news report this morning, they were reporting on this, and the fiction-reporter said “Evidence is turning up that may support the idea that Zimmerman’s testimony MAY ACTUALLY BE TRUE!”

And they actually emphasized those words, to let everybody know they were SHOCKED, because they too ready to lynch him, but (DAMMIT!!!) those pesky facts got in the way.

They are backing away big time.

Yes, its a partial report. It does not mention a initial round, it doesn't mention if the gun is loaded. Nothing. The officers didn't ask GZ any questions, it wasn't there job to do any of that.

The current race/ethnicity check list has two categories: the first is to check whether or not one considers oneself Hispanic/Latino, the second contains everything else. So by this one could be Hispanic/Latino and Japanese, as many from Brazil (that has the largest Japanese population outside Japan) and Chile could describe themselves.

According to the NY Times (I don't have the link) he's White Hispanic.
Now technically that's true, he is half Caucasian and half Hispanic. But we don't call Obama white black. You're only white Hispanic when the Times wants a shooter to be a white guy. He looks Hispanic, just as Obama looks black.

So, if we're going to use their criteria (dad's first, then mom's), Zero would be a black Caucasian. If you want to know how ridiculous white Hispanic is, just apply the same criteria to Zero, and that's what you get. Black Caucasian. It's an idiotic way to label, but for those looking for racism (as you say, they want the shooter to be white), no stone too small to leave unturned.

I know black people to this day who defend OJ Simpson and still believe he was setup by cops.

Now a situation like this where there are some grey areas, there’s no amount of facts that are going to change their minds.

The description about the struggle for the gun is what I read too. If that’s what happened, we have a shooting to defend one’s life. Case closed.
