This has nothing to do with light skinned or dark skinned. Every race has its bad people whether it be white, light skinned, or dark skinned. Honestly our court system fails with the right justice to be served. And us latinos aren't racist. Red necks and white people call us latinos the N word and wetback and spic, we are treated just like african americans. George Zimmerman is just a rotten apple from us Latino people. May Trayvon Martin rest in peace. And don't worry Karma is going to get back at George Zimmerman, because karma is gods work.

why didn't trayvon CALL either of his PARENTs when he was running scared ? (instead of rachel jeantel ?)

because the PARENTs were not providing the kid with the proper supervision and positive role model examples and trayvon was back-sliding as a throw-away kid who neither PARENT any longer wanted custody of since at 18 he would no longer qualify them for goverment benefits and hand-outs of financial support

i blame the PARENTs - period

why wasn't the FATHER walking with the kid to the store in a strange neighborhood ? or tutoring the kid to get back on track in school after being suspended so near graduation ? or setting a good example of himself as a FATHER ? why did the kid's MOTHER give up on him ?

Was he guilty? Probably. According to Florida laws, I would have found him innocent too. Word to the wise. DON'T PUT YOURSELF IN A POSITION WHERE TROUBLE CAN FIND YOU. IF THE POLICE SAY, "TO GET OUT OF THE CAR AND RAISE YOUR HANDS" LISTEN. IF YOU ARE STRESSED OUT AND FIGHTING WITH YOUR SPOUSE OR KIDS, WALK AWAY FOR 5 MINUTES. BE WILLING TO LOSE IN THE SHORT RUN, TO WIN LONG TERM. LASTLY, GROW UP! LEARN TO DRESS, SPEAK, AND HOW TO CONDUCT YOURSELF! LIFE IS A GIANT, PERPETUAL JOB INTERVIEW! Btw, most people with face tattoos, or pants that hang low enough to share your underwear, aren't successful. Look yourself in the mirror and reevaluate what "Keeping it real" means.

LUTHER R CAMPBELL@unclelukereal1

Live in a country where black men have been hunted down murdered from the day we got here. As you can see nothing has changed

Yeah, like Chicago where open season is on for blacks to hunt down other blacks and kill them.

I'd advise Blacks to quit voting Dems, or the whole black race will be on the endangered species list.  either through abortion, dispair from living on welfare , drugs and high crime. The Dem party encourages low expectations due to outdated ideas on the "man" is going to put you down, when it's now blacks putting their own selves down.

The Dem party is not the black man's friend, they are your biggest enemy.

"George Zimmerman, you are a profiling, vigilante, racist, right wing, trigger-happy, child-killing coward. 

 

Remember, this is the same jury pool that let that baby murder Casey Anthony off


ex-fiancee, Veronica Zuazo. Zimmerman attacked her while the two were driving to a counseling session

Zimmerman followed a man in his car until the police arrived. Daniel Osmun, the other driver, told police that Zimmerman was tailgating and that he spit his gum out the window "out of frustration.

George Zimmerman  cousin’s molestation



zimmerman work as security He was fired for being too aggressive with patrons. He picked up and threw a women. It was pure rage. She twisted her ankle.



He lied about his finances and the existence of a second passport there is no reason to believe anything else he say.



When an armed man can hunt down an unarmed teenager while on the telephone with a 911 dispatcher, kill the teen, and then walk away free, I think it’s fair to assume that there’s a serious problem with justice in the jurisdiction where the event took place.




My heart goes out to the Martin family.  And of course to the next family who suffers this kind of loss at Zimmerman's hands.

I am so proud of the American justice system !  An innocent man was found Not Guilty . We have one less thug to worry about.  This is redemption  for the OJ simpson Trial, The Rodney King Trial and the Tawana Brawley/Al Sharpton mockery of the judicial system

Zimmermen had a legal responsibility to to identify himself as a member of the neighborhood watch and was there performing that function and as such he had the legal right to carry a concealed weapon and was indeed carrying. If a plain clothes police officer challenges you, does not identify himself as an officer and the exchange becomes heated to the point of physical violence, who carries the burden of responsibility for whatever may happen next?

I predicted it in four stages of the proceedings! 1) After the initial charges were brought--- less than Murder One; 2) After the prosecutors opening statements; 3) After hearing of the girl's unwillingness and/or inability to participate, cooperate, and/or live up to the challenge of being a compelling witness for Trevor, the prosecution; and 4) After hearing Trevon's father contradict or change his own statements to the effect it wasn't Trevor screaming/crying to that it was his son. What a travesty, what an injustice that has been done to Trevor, his family and all the righteous, fair, and justice minded people in Flordia, The US., and the World! In my opinion the prosecution was sub-standard, ineffective, and questionably committed to a solid conviction from the start!

I wonder how many of the commenters actually took the time to read what Florida law says.

I wonder how many of them actually tried to listen to the testimonies in the trial.

I wonder how many are able to say, "Ok, I was wrong. Let's move on."

The Media (Jews) have fueled this Zimmerman case as a full blown race war. They have used this revers psychology to get minorities to go out and commit crimes in anger, hence white man doesnt go to jail, but minorities do. The Jews are the most racist race that ever exsisted. Know your enemy.

I am very sad and disappointed. I am concerned about Trayvon's family.
Marissa Alexander get 20 years for warning shot scare off her husband when she felt he was threatening her and zimmerman gets off for killing shooting Trayvon martin welcome to florida. This particular case am convinced that corruption and power permeate American society. Zimmerman will fall again since the evidence that he is a criminal and has a disturbed mind and his daddy won't be able to protect him next time ...

unbelievable and by that I mean believable.



Who calls the police just prior to committing 2nd degree murder? Someone who is known by the police and whose father is a retired judge would be confident that there would no consequence. And if it wasn't for the outrage by the public, he wouldn't be on trial.He had a dad who could tell him how to get away with stand your ground.  




He lied about his finances and the existence of a second passport there is no reason to believe anything else hey say.

So apparently Al Sharpton said that the outcome of the Zimmerman trial was a slap in the face for black people. I would wager if Trayvon was white and zimmerman was black he would have had no problem with the ruling. That is all I am saying if you don't like my stance on the ruling you can delete me from your friends list because I don't need to be your friend in the first place.

I am very sad and disappointed. I am concerned about Trayvon's family. I am an American abroad who still believes that there is more justice back home, but with this particular case am convinced that corruption and power permeate American society. Zimmerman will fall again since the evidence prooves that he is a criminal and has a disturbed mind and his daddy won't be able to protect him next time ...


Had Mr. Martin shot and killed Mr. Zimmerman under similar circumstances, Mr. Martin would have been quickly arrested by the Sanford Police Department and charged in the killing, without the benefit of the doubt” And vigorously questioned by police if he claimed self-defense. The SPD treated Zimmerman easier than Hannity treated him--few tough questions, few questions about the details. The prosecution was handed a weak case because of the shoddy work of the SPD.” Actually, they would have beat Trayvon to a pulp first! and claimed he was resisting arrest (had Trayvon shot & killed zimmerman)

explain it to your kids by telling your boys that IF they ever find themselves in such a situation to CALL YOU and that YOU as a responsible FATHER will make yourself IMMEDIATELY available to their needs and concerns

young trayvon was a throw-away kid who was approaching the limit whereas he would qualify his PARENTs for government subsidies and hand-outs and as such they would have less and less to do with him which is why i don't BLAME the kid

i BLAME the PARENTs = period

WHY didn't trayvon call his FATHER instead of rachel jeantel ?

WHY wasn't the FATHER with trayvon,  walking him to the store and back home,  in a strange neighborhood at night, to protect him  ?

WHY wasn't the MOTHER available ?

this is not a family concerned with each other - this is a jerry springer show

BE THERE AS A real PARENT for your kids to protect and guide them = period !

@drakemallard No, he got out to look around to see where Martin went and let the dispacther know where he was at. He was talking to the dispatcher the whole time until he went back to get in his car . 

Martin attacked George when  George was going back TO his car. You can't attack someone for walking around and looking and then going back to your car . That's a crime, assualt and battery.

trayvons family didn't care about the kid so why would you care about them ?

it was his parents that FAILED him

who calls a friend (rachel jeantel) instead of his PARENTs when he was running scared and needed help ?

why wasn't the MOTHER available ?

rev sharpton goes back to TAWANA BRAWLEY in gaining a reputation for inciting hatred and spewing racially motivated speeches

it was the PARENTs of the kid that failed him and threw the kid away since he was approaching 18 and would no longer qualify the parents for government subsidies and hand-outs

why do you think the kid who was runing scared and needed help calle drachel jentel instead of his FATHER or MOTHER ? where were is PARENTs when he needed them ? why was he alone and on his own ? did they even know where he was or what he was doing or who he was with in a strange neighborhood at night ?

frankd4
frankd4 topcommenter

what family ?

had the PARENTs taken responsibility as parents and provided the proper environment to protect the kid - instead of throwing him away because he would no longer be qualifying them for government hand-outs and subsidies - the kid would be in school and have a future today

where were his PARENTs when he needed them ? where was the FATHER ? why wasn't the MOTHER available ? why did the kid have to rely on rachel jentel to help him ?

@ebatista0909 @frankd4 

chronological age does NOT mean that EVERY person at 17 has the maturity and knowledge and experience that YOU might have had

DID YOU NOT hear how immature and uneducated his friend, RACHEL JEANTEL was ? she simply didn't know how to conduct herself

i've been to PUBLIC events with people at restaurants and they were old enough to know better but yet they obviously did NOT KNOW how to act

however MY QUESTIONs about the PARENTs still stands - they certainly got EDUCATED on how to settle a million dollar lawsuit from the homeowners insurance policy quick enough so how come they didn't know where their kid was ?
