Mike Tyson on Trayvon Martin case: ĎItís a disgrace [George Zimmerman] hasnít been shot yetí
Yahoo! News ^ | April 11, 2012 | Dylan Stableford

Posted on 04/11/2012 3:36:03 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Mike Tyson thinks that George Zimmerman deserves violent retribution for the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

In an interview with Yahoo News about his upcoming one-man show in Las Vegas, the former heavyweight champion sounded off on the polarizing case:

"My personal feeling is that, as a young kid that was beat on by a bully, that was pretty much singled out—the guy [Zimmerman] stalked him, didn't follow instructions from a superior officer, when they said, "Stop following the kid." That tells you everything right there. But my all-around perspective, I wasn't there, I don't know what happened. But it's just so widespread and overt what happened. Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages. It's a majority versus a minority. That's the way God planned it. He didn't want to do something about it, He wanted us to do something about it.

the panel of experts has spoken.

I just have this funny feeling...if Zimmerman goes down, whoa baby, is there going to be hell to pay.

But then of course it'll be martial law for whitey.

23 years ago today my 16 year old son was brutally murdered with a 2 ft section of fence post, by a sociopath, who ambushed him on his way home from school..just to see what it felt like to kill. And consigned me to eternal pain in my heart. You never get over losing your child to a killer.

No one marched, no one protested, they just plea bargained 1st degree murder down to 2nd and 20 years, of which I fought for every one of the 14.5 years he served, longer than my Jeremy lived on this earth.

Who’s going to enforce martial law against 250 million armed civilians? The combined armies of every country in the world wouldn’t have a prayer. Have you been in a gun, pawn or sporting goods store recently? Ruger isn’t taking any more orders for the rest of the year they’re so backlogged. Even Hi-Point and Jimenez Arms are running 3 shifts!!

"the guy [Zimmerman] stalked him, didn't follow instructions from a superior officer"

911 operator = "superior officer." And I didn't know Zimmerman was a cop to begin with.

Morons should keep their mouths shut. Always.

I don’t think whitey believes this is happening, folks just can’t imagine we are being occupied in the white house by a lying scumbag imposter, I think the white population being the least racist on earth will let them trample our homes and our freedoms...It is obvious we no longer have a republic, voting fraud, racist groups like the black panthers run at will no matter what they do, we have a president ruling by executive order, the press is silent to truth, we are fast approaching the point of persecution.....

I remember America, she was worth fighting for, we no longer have the will to live free..lights out.....

it sure would be nice if those form NY and Chicago and others around the country would get the facts, understand the constitution and more importantly understand our laws in FL.

People like Tyson have no clue what laws we have, what a constitution is and down here we have had a press conference shown on the local channels and the MSM found one long time resident saying Zimmermann should be charged and let his town move on.

Course he then went into a tirade about people carrying guns, and how stupid it was to allow people to have guns.

Now I’m guessing that the local channel who found this guy probably asked about 20 people and then just decided to show him on TV .
Maybe if the MSM and this local fool had took the time to read laws and the 2nd amendment then he will know why people carry guns or why we have them.

In the meantime the black panthers have not been charged, the MSM are still on a witch hunt, Sharpton and other race baiting pimps are out in force and no doubt the mother is wanting Zimmermann to be found guilty and then do a civil suit..

Now how many blacks have been shot today and last night around this country by other blacks and who have illegal guns?

mmmmmmm weird how we don’t hear any of that and where is the Hispanic groups? Have they had their orders to stand down from the white house and the DOJ?

I see your point, but I believe what I have said, the only answer is God’s reality and ours is falling fast..

I will vote and do the things a citizen should to get that slime bag out, but honestly, there are no candidates who have the sack to end our debt this year, start selling off washington dc to pay it off, (they spent it, they pay it), then take away their rights to raise funds at all, all states should have a balanced budget amendment, broke states go broke, no bailout, the federal “G” only gets money for specific projects if the states have extra after the years budget has been proven...otherwise the federal “gangsta” will rape the people until we are dead..

I just have this funny feeling...if Zimmerman goes down, whoa baby, is there going to be hell to pay.

I wish that were true, but I have yet to see any meaningful outrage among the decent folks in this country. We should have been in full revolt by now if Americans still kept our founding ideals. I guess we'll see.

The truth of this situation is this: if Zimmerman is acquitted, blacks will riot. If Zimmerman is found guilty, whites (and white hispanics) should riot, but I'm not sure they will.

I thought the dispatcher advised Zimmerman that ‘he didn’t have to follow (Trayvon) and Zimmerman said “OK.” At some point Zimmerman broke off and returned to his truck because the final altercation occurred on a concrete sidewalk. That’s where Trayvon walked up behind him and where the altercation occurred.

Naaahhh,there'll be big trouble if he's not tried or is found not guilty but that's it.IMO that's why the state is prosecuting.Our nation's Attorney Corporal will prosecute because that's part of Osama Obama's scorched earth campaign strategy.
