It was Tom Selleck playing as Jesse Stone who said, “I am not in the right or wrong business; I am in the legal or not legal business”.

Time for GZ to sue the media and write a book, pay his legal bills and clean up.

America does need healing, but it never will with this group in power.

Division is what they want.

He won’t be sued for civil rights violations - he is not a government employee nor did he act under color of law.

Furthermore, the truth is the truth and Zimmerman is himself a minority and that does not fit the narrative.

Stay safe, everyone. Might be wise to stay close to home for awhile. In safe, familiar places. Don’t get caught alone in a parking lot after dark. Remember the knockout game. You don’t want to be the one victim in your city when some enraged person wants to take out their rage on the nearest law-abiding citizen.

Here is how a certain class of white people handled matters when they thought the justice system “failed.”

White people, and especially Jews, had better watch their homes and property if Al Sharpton is in the neighborhood. I can just imagine a couple of Jewish-owned businesses catching fire with Sharpton around, just like in 1995.

LET’S RAP WITH AL SHARPTON! (Clean family-friendly version)

I’m Al Sharpton, and Obama’s my man
To make him Pres-i-dent, that is my plan.

Back in 1988, in Wappingers Falls
Mason, Maddox and I had the place wall to wall!

We found us a girl, her name was Tawana
We made the whole town one great big pinata!

We whacked it around and raised an uproar,
We ruined lives and reputations, and then even more.

Half a million dollars, Dutchess County it spent,
It paid dear for our circus, ere from it we went.

Then came Crown Heights, in 1991
My mob went wild, and boy it had fun!

The “diamond merchants” sure got a clue,
When my mob rampaged and screamed, “Kill the Jew!”

They found one, name of Yankel Rosenbaum
The brother that knifed him was no Uncle Tom.

They rioted and screamed, that was a fact
Like the Nazis did, on good old Kristallnacht.*

Four years later, we gave Whitey straight dope
Harlem’s a Black ‘hood, don’t you dare interlope.

To Freddy’s Fashion Mart, my National Action Network
Marched round and round, to drive out the white jerk.

Called him “white interloper,” and “bloodsucking Jew,”
“Greedy Jews!” and “cracker lovers!” we also threw.

We screamed epithets, camped out on his porch
Called him a cracker, said his business we’d torch.

Roland Smith was my fan, and I sure raised his ire.
At Freddy’s Fashion Mart, he set a big fire!

A Molotov cocktail, the flash of a match,
And your white-owned Jew store is a big pile of ash!

Seven people died in those hot burning flames,
A bright blazing fire that widened my fame.

Then came the scandal of Duke Lacrosse
I went down to Durham to show ‘em who’s boss.

I supported Mike Nifong, he’s my kind of man
To find them white boys guilty, that was his plan.

Something went wrong, his case was dismissed
I’m sure it was all because the courts are ra-cist.

Now here is more from me that will bring real raves,
We was building empires when whites lived in caves!

Invented philosophy, astrology, and publicity promos,
Long before Socrates and them dirty Greek homos.

Louis Farrakhan is also my man, I bet you can dig it.
Says Judaism’s a gutter religion, but I swear he’s no bigot.

Now if you want to please me and your mama
Get out on Election Day and vote for Obama!

* Kristallnacht, “Night of the Broken Glass.”

"The system has failed"

Thing is, this is actually true. The system as it was being operated in Florida was being rigged to convict Zimmerman.

I have to tell you, even though I am aware of how these things operate, it was still astonishing to watch them try to stack the deck.

What was even more surreal was watching the tactics of the prosecution as their case was imploding inside that rigged system.

In order to look like to me? It looked almost like the stereotypical robot that is given intentionally conflicting instructions. It is as if the prosecutions head began twitching from side to side and their speech became jittery when they knew that they had to win this case, but at the same time realizing they wouldn't.

I wouldn't have been surprised to see sparks coming out of their ears during the final arguments.

Just think. As happy as GZ is, they are 100x angrier.

Ann Coulter certainly hit the nail on the head in her book “Demonic” about mob mentality.

I bet Obama is happy to aggravate the black vote against whitey.
