Skip to comments.Obama Responds to Zimmerman Verdict: 'Stem the Tide of Gun Violence'--For Trayvon
Posted on 07/14/2013 1:07:19 PM PDT by servo1969
The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if were doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if were doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, thats a job for all of us. Thats the way to honor Trayvon Martin."

A community organizer's job is to foment unrest among the population. Barack Obama is still a community organizer. Only now, he is the Chief Executive Community Organizer.
GO TO CHICAGO YOU MORON........
No mention of Chicago. This “White African American” president is buffoon.
Trayvon is the best argument imaginable against gun control.
The White Negro King responds...
Take our guns away so we can't defend ourselves against criminals like Trayvon Martin.
Yes, call the Police to defend you.
The same Police who tried to put Zimmerman in jail.
Because Zimmerman tried to defend himself.
If anything, Zimmerman should be praised for protecting a community that in a lot of ways, is the same as Obama so lovingly “organized”. ~sarc
Violence is a characteristic of humans and some animals, Mr. pResident. An inanimate object cannot choose to be violent.
I think better results would be achieved in stemming the tide of criminal violence committed by blacks against whomever.
Yep. If we just had single-payer health care, Trayvon would be alive today.
If only gay marriage had been legal 10 years ago, this wouldn’t have happened.
If we had higher taxes, blah blah blah blah.
This was a huge victory for the American people, and a huge loss for the Fairy King.
nobama should be presenting Zimmerman with the Medal of Freedom...instead, we get this pap about gun violence. Sheesh! Why doesn’t nobama, the obviously all-knowing”, just turn him self in and spend the rest of his worthless existence in prison.
“Thats the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”
What exactly are we honoring?
I’ll honor Trayvon Martin after I’ve gotten around to honoring Charles Manson.
Obama would not want to hold his breath awaiting either honoring.
What if Zimmerman had defended himself with a knife instead of a Gun? Son of 0bama would be just as dead and America would still be divided because of race baiters like 0bama.
What a disgusting load of drek!
Do it for Trayvon. Do it for his parents.
It was the gun’s fault. etc.
A nation 0of laws???? Since when.
Obama only obeys the ones he wants to, and he makes up others to suit himself.
If this were a nation of laws we would have a strong Legislative Brach instead of the pack of Republican and Democrats pussies we have now.
“The same Police who tried to put Zimmerman in jail.”
It wasn’t the police. Check the facts.
No, Magic Negro—you’re wrong again.
It’s gangs and thug culture.
Trayvon was a punk.
Would you care to spin again?
It wasn't the police who tried to put GZ into jail.
They didn't want to, because they didn't see that he had committed a crime.
It was liberal politicians, racist pressure groups, and the media that wanted to jail GZ.
Hey Obama, how about mention the Zimmerman family..the family you helped DESTROY you piece of sh*t!! The disgust I have for this vermin I can’t even put into words..sorry Obama, I don’t “honor” a thug like Trayvon Martin, you live like a gang banging thug and you die like one. Maybe next time one of them will think differently before trying to bash someone’s head in with a concrete slab
What, exactly, are we honoring Travon for?
I recently honored a Medal of Honor recipient for saving hundreds of soldiers' lives on Iwo Jima at the risk of his own life. So what honorable deed has Trayvon accomplished?
Barry has set back race relations by 100 years.
Shame on him !
I tell you this, I would not let Obama present me with a Medal of Freedom. He doesn’t know or respect the meaning of the word.
I would refuse it to his face on stage and then tell him why I did so.
And if GZ hadn’t had a gun, he might have been dead.
Would Obama then call for “cement sidewalk control”?
Live, on TV, sans teleprompter:
As President of the United States, I, Barack Hussein Obama, foolishly interjected myself into a local matter that I had no business sticking my nose in. I also inappropriately instructed Eric Holder and the DOJ to interfere the judicial process in Florida, when I shouldnt have. And for this, I am deeply sorry and apologize to Mr. George Zimmerman, to the people of Florida, and to all Americans.
From this moment forward, I resolve, with help of God and from all of you, to make every effort to refrain from interjecting myself into in such a manner ever again.”
Go sell your bullshiite in Chicago, or Flint, or Detroit where a white man can’t walk down the street in any kind if safety thanks to all your ither sons Obama. FU.
Molon Labe Asshole
Chris Serino, Sanford Police Department Lead Detective, recommended Zimmerman be prosecuted for Manslaughter.
Months after making his recommendation, Serino claimed he had been “pressured.”
Is that the kind of policeman you want defending YOU in a life and death struggle?
Chicago says they aint got time fo that.
It couldn’t have been the fact that St. Skittles was smashing GZ’s head into the concrete now could it?
After all he was 17 and buying skittles......so that excuses everything.
Self defense is not gun violence.
I think a more honorable and truthful way to honor Trayvon is to remind people that when you start a fight with an armed man, one should bring more than Skittles and Ice tea to the fight.
I have just returned from being out of the country for the past month.
Honestly, I used to leave the country and look forward to coming home. Now, it's depressing. I really just don't even like being here anymore. And it's not that there is anywhere better. There is just something to not really understanding another country's politics, not really speaking the language and just not caring what they do.
That guy in our White House speaks again...
this time Gangdom Style..
Yo we be inasint we b rite to cary scitilz
U shutt my homee baes yo raysis
We can jail thugs, criminals and gang bangers and reveal their identities at the first vandalism, threat, use of narcotics, sale of narcotics, possession of stolen goods, possession of burglary tools, assault on school bus drivers, suspensions from required schooling or truancy, that's what we can do to save innocent citizen's lives.
And we could lower costs for law abiders to purchase guns and training, we could do that, too.
Disarm whitey. That’s what is going on here.
You always classify an investigation with the criminal code that is most likely to be appropriate if you generate probable cause during such investigation.
Right off the bat, they pulled numbers for Manslaughter, as "Apparent Natural Death" would have been ridiculous. Drawing numbers for something and classifying your report in this way does not mean an officer is recommending someone be charged. Even taking the report to a prosecutor with the heading of Manslaughter means nothing. I have personally appeared before prosecutors with an entire case file titled (INSERT CRIME HERE), and said "we just don't have PC", and the case goes nowhere.
“We should ask ourselves ...”
“We should ask ourselves ...”
“We should ask ourselves ...”
“We should ask ourselves ...”
He sounds like that Talking Heads song!
So is Obama now going to give Zimmerman a medal for taking a thug off the streets?
Where is the Govoner of Florida or AG Pam Bondi standing up and telling the man child pos president and his butt boy Reid to get out of our business?
No where thats where, because both of those so called Republicans helped facilitate the whole damn thing to begin with. My blood boils!
Well, as if this spin was any surprise to anybody. Since the creepy-a$$ crackers can’t be blamed, blame those wicked, wicked guns that come complete with evil spirits. (FOOOOOOEY)
No apologies for jumping the gun and assuming the Latino Zimmerman was guilty ?
Stem the tide of self defense.
Obama should look at Detroit where the justifiable homicide rate is some 2300% above the national average. I guarantee that those are 90%+ blacks defending themselves from other blacks.
