@TruthSeeker:
The was not all bloody and broken. The full extent of his medical treatment was 2 band-aids. Talk about spinning the facts…you are pathetic.

@Eva.: You are a filthy racist liar. People like you are disgusting. Go stand in front of George Zimmerman’s gun.

@nogo: Zimmerman’s father is ashkenazi jewish. He may not be a practicing jew , and may or may not have converted to baptism, but he was born to the judaism religion, plus he’s ashkenazi.

for Aisaik05

don’t waste your energy on negative comments towards individuals such as Eva and offtheproperty.

they currently stand amongst those in this country that are highly irritated and distraught that the world is changing all around them.

it frightens them that the face of this world is beginning to look more “Brown” like Trayvon Martin, and they can’t do anything to stop it.

Keep that thought in your mind that they are loosing traction in this country by the day, in regards to the extinction of the White race….and they don’t have a clue as to what to do about it!!

@imwhiteandproud

DON’T WORRY HE WILL NEVER GO TO YOUR ALL-WHITE HELL YOUR PLACE IS SAFE THERE

Loser entertainers without careers that no one buys who peddle their poor wares on Twitter to nonexistent software-generated faux-fan accounts. Their careers are as dead as their school dropout brains. Also, Martin the perp wasn’t a little kid when it attacked George Zimmerman the defendent, but an adult. The media loves flashing that little kid picture of filthy nasty evil thug Martin. Maybe these entertainers with no careers and school dropout brains can make a bad movie of all this… in bad 3D.

I THINK WE HAVE HIT A NERVE AMERICA.

NOT ONE CREEPY ASS CRACKER HAS MADE A COMMENT IN THIS DISCUSSION FORUM AS TO THEIR THEORY OF WHY WHITE WOMEN ARE LEAVING WHITE MEN IN TREMENDOUS NUMBERS, THUS WILLINGLY CREATING RACIAL GENOCIDE.

@Really:

You’re disgusting.

@Eva.:

Correct. And anytime someone knows the perpetrator of said crime, they won’t tell the police because they don’t want to be called “snitches” because hey it’s better to have your street cred than get some jerk off the street who would kill you or your family without a second thought.

You want crime to end, be part of the solution. Don’t harbor the people who commit crimes just because they share your skin tone.

No one who is commenting on the verdict has actually read the trial transcripts or attended the trial to really know the mind set of the jurors or to even examine the evidence that was heard. Everyone just assumes Zimmerman must be guilty and the 17 year old is dead because of him. None of us know what really happened. If there was evidence proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman was guilty, I do believe he would have been found guilty. What happened to innocent until proven guilty . I guess that flew out the window in this case. If you need to blame anyone for this verdict, blame the shabby case the prosecution presented. They jumped the gun in charging him because of public outcry and not because they had solid evidence

Martin’s name is a Providential reference to Martin Luther King Jr. Who was shot with a deer hunting rifle in Memphis, Egypt, USA.

I wish celebs would shut up about these things that they have no clue about… becasue their fans will have the follow that clueless opinion…

Where’s the outrage for the case the Prosecution put forward? Their case was full of holes from the very beginning. Where is the outrage?!? If they had done their jobs correctly then the jury wouldn’t have had such a difficult time in convicting Mr. Zimmerman for Murder or Manslaughter.

Jesse Williams was the only one speaking sense!

lol @ nimme you have no clue what you are talking about!! First off Zimmerman is 29, secondly he wasn’t out of shape when it happened he recently gained all that weight, thirdly if you think 4 inches of height matter in street fight you obviously have never been in one! Lastly it doesn’t matter what bruises he had because he started the altercation, so Trayvon Martin didn’t have the right to defend himself??? You cant follow someone, start a fight and when you start to lose that fight then you cant decide to shoot and kill someone! Now for all you people making these racist comments ask yourself one thing: if it were the other way around would Trayvon have been acquitted?? The answer is hell no, he would serving a life sentence right now!

what’s SO SAD is the fact that white folks would rather discuss the fate of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, while their own world is going to hell in an handbasket.

This is for you @ Sally- if you live another 10 to 15 years you will see the changes that’s creeping up behind your ignorant asses, when you look around and you and your race has dropped to the point of irrelevance.!

yet you dumb asses continue to waste time talking about a dead man, and a dead man walking!

If you watched the entire trial, prosecution had no evidence. Most of the witnesses ended up supporting the defense team. Prosecution’s only case was to push on the emotions of the all female jury. The justice system ran its course and we got a fair verdict. The media just wanted to play this up as a race thing, but Zimmerman isn’t even white. He’s Hispanic. Good grief!

People have a right to be upset at the verdict. But how do you think the jury feels? They HAD to go by the evidence presented to them. Not by what their heart says. If u want to blame someone, blame the prosecution. As for celebs tweeting about it. All they want to do is keep their names in the news. U notice every time something happens its the SAME celebs tweeting about it. Those are the most desperate ones, in fear of losing their spot in Hollywood!

Dee from Dallas @ 07/14/2013 at 8:55 pm

Celebrities need to keep their personal opinions to themselves. They don’t need to comment on something they really know nothing about. None of us were there that night and really don’t know what happened. To call our justice system names is just not responsible. Promote piece, not unrest. Be responsible in your commenting publicly. Maybe everyone now knows how the Brown family and Goldman family felt after O.J. walked free.

KARMA IS A MUTHA @ 07/14/2013 at 9:00 pm

glad you mentioned that DEE FROM DALLAS! Just like O.J. killed those people and walked free, so has George Zimmerman.

Now let’s take it a little further, just like O.J. getting his in the end……….So will George Zimmerman.

Karma is a great Equalizer. KARMA IS A MUTHA!!!!

banana puddin @ 07/14/2013 at 9:06 pm

That’s alright. It’s usually the fattys and the dogs that go over.

@Dawna: You’re a ******. Get out of here you troll.

@banana puddin, get the coke out of your nose, your comment makes no sense.

The sad part about this is that a guilty man was set free. If a man followed me in his car and then by foot, I would assume that he was doing it with the intention of hurting me. We do not have Martin’s side of the story. For all we know, martin could of seen the gun and thought, “this man is going to hurt me or kill me.” If I was in that position I would of thought the same thing and I would of reacted probably the same. I would do whatever I had to do to keep a man, who i thought wanted to hurt me, from actually harming me. Should our children be scared of protecting themselves and fighting back if a man with a weapon follows them around?

Comeuppins @ 07/14/2013 at 9:29 pm

@ Dawna

CAN’T WAIT TIL YOUR PRECIOUS LITTLE ONE, BRINGS HOME A TRAYVON MARTIN LOOK ALIKE.

STATISTICALLY SPEAKING, IT WILL HAPPEN! BE CAREFUL OF THE COMMENTS YOU MAY HAVE TO EAT IN THE FUTURE.

wow I can see not very many people really followed the trial.
