Well not earth. I don't live in the US and I've never heard of this guy.

Only read his story now and it's laughable the way people are going on about it.

From my perspective it just seems like the media played the whole racial thing in order to sell this story and folks are actually falling for it.

Who cares if he was black? If it was a latino or white would it have been less horrible?

What if Zimmerman wasn't living in some rich gated area but instead in a normal suburb. pfft, it's sick the way the media played the whole victim card on behalf of the deceased.

Life is a life and race shouldn't play a role in it or contribute to the value of the life.

Glad Zimmerman was found not guilty considering that so much was against him.

Not that it really changes anything in my life, though. There's other injustices taking place greater than this on which I can focus my attention.

For someone who does not live in America you seem to see things about this case very clear.

Sometimes looking in from outside is what it takes to see things a little more clear.

I really have to agree. I'm shocked anyone on a site like ATS (News hounds or at least news aware people) would not know this guys name. Not that they SHOULD know it, but because the media can't shut the hell up about it and have been riding this case like a case of clap in a Bangkok cat house since it started. I don't think it has ever really deserved national level coverage, but then, no one asks us little people about that huh?

One case becomes household news ..and another? Never even known outside a victim's family. The difference? Hell if I know. I really don't.

Well this is great news, How ever I hope Zimmerman realizes he needs to leave the
country if he wants to live his life with some level of peace. Obama should do the right
thing and tell the states to let it go and accept the verdict, however I doubt he will do that.


why would you say that about Obama,??? he's the democratically elected president of the US, has 2 beautiful daughters, a great marriage, kept his nose to the grindstone, and made something of himself, despite a turbulent early family life...hmm...let's see, what could it be??...why would you think the president of the America WOULDN'T do the right thing????....hmm......just can't my finger on it...... but, you must have some reason for saying that, right?

Ok yes the police dispatcher did tell him not to pursue. And I am also an active member of my neighborhood watch which I am the only one to hold a license to carry a concealed weapon.... Did I also mention I'm the youngest member of my watch?? What we do is WATCH never pursue. Now if someone breaks into my house that's a different story.

What we do is watch outside our homes and sometimes driving down our streets. And if we feel there is something out of the ordinary we report it to the authority's. Thats it...... Yep I said it.... I don't put on a costume and attempt to fight evil. My firearm is for my protection only not for becoming a vigilantly


That's the same SOP we have in our community.

And it works.

Nice to see justice after all the mis conduct.

The case should have been droped as comprimised as soon as the president stuck his nose in. To me that is mis conduct at the worst level and makes me disgusted. You expect that sort of thing in north korea not in a free western country that values a fair justice system...,.

amarillo.com...


Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered. Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation’s population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, the black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities, it’s 22 times that of whites. Coupled with being most of the nation’s homicide victims, blacks are most of the victims of violent personal crimes, such as assault and robbery.




amarillo.com...


“Wouldn’t you think to have 41 people shot (in Chicago) between Friday morning and Monday morning would be much more newsworthy and deserve much more outrage?” Former NAACP leader Pastor C.L. Bryant said the rallies organized by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson suggest there is an epidemic of “white men killing black young men,” adding: “The epidemic is truly black-on-black crime. The greatest danger to the lives of young black men are young black men.”


Where is the news media?

What are they up to?

I said it once before, where are the MLK type people looking for the content of a persons character and not the color of a persons skin????????


That breed of human being is, sadly, extremely close to extinction in this day and age.

What we have nowadays is a lot of race-based hysteria and a great many dim-witted people.

The future looks very dark...

No wonder the world can't stand that country. Yeah there is no racism in America
it is all in everyone's ..



??? Racially profile? TM was the one who used a racist term by calling GZ a "creepy white-ass cracker". Who racially profiled who? The only ones who made this racial were Obama "if I had a son he would look like TM", Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Funny not a peep from them when the black guy broke into the house in NJ a few weeks ago and beat up a white mother home alone with her child, or the black teenagers who shot a woman's baby a for no reason and killed it while the mother was out walking him in the stroller last year, or the 11 murders last week in Chicago as a result of black on black crime. They only chirp racism selectively when it serves their agenda.

You seem to be implying that if something is out of the ordinary in your neighborhood you should intervene which is simply not the case.


I am only guessing here but apparently you don't have a lot of crime in your neighborhood. If I see something odd or strange going on, I will check it out first and if I decide that it needs my intervention, well, I'll intervene. Been there, Done that on multiple occasions. Most times it wasn't even my neighborhood.


You can potentially be putting yourself or others in harms way. Again that's what the police are for. So what I own a pistol? Does that give me a right to approach random strangers?


When seconds count...the Police are only minutes away. Ever heard of that saying? And I have approached plenty of strangers in tense situations, usually by asking a simple question but in a calm but authoritative manner. I've come to realize that just by acting like this usually calms most people down.


If I ever did that I should get my a$! Beat as Zimmerman did. Only difference is I wouldn't pull my firearm out and murder someone for my mistake.


Then why in Gods name do you even have a CCW permit? Does it make you cool or something?

Sense the trial is over do you think maybe we can focus on more important issues, like Benghaz, IRS, NSA scandals, and the all the other future scandals.

For some reason I don't think that the government, and the liberal media is done with this story. What a shame!!

They just need an exuse to do some more stupid things, they dont care bout TM, only the fact that he was black and that the other guy walk - if TM was white or other than black, they would just laugh at it.

Good to see the system works an the laws are followed - at first i thought Gz would get manslaughter, but it became more and more obvious that legally he was innocent - very nice ruling of the jury

Funny, I thought I was the only one noticing the digression of the human race.

It seems that old age not only brings wisdom but you can't help but notice the extreme change in human nature.

Do I have to say "not for the better" or do you get my point?

The Zimmerman case had nothing to do with:
1. Segregation
2. Past injustices done to blacks for 400 years.
3. Racial profiling.
4. A white vs black crime.
5. Gun control.
6. Making up for all those injustices over the past 400 years.

It was about a thug 17 year old who attacked a man, and the victim felt his life was in danger and fired.

The MSM, DOJ, and Obama have made this case a national event due to inaccurate information, abrupt conclusions, and most of all, how could the nation allow a white man (Hispanic) to get away with shooting a black man?

Few were interested in facts. Most were out for revenge...

They will beat this dead horse for quite awhile yet, especially until the NAACP's federal charges against Zimmerman push are denied or defeated.

Once there is no possible way left to imprison Zimmerman, the whole thing will become a footnote in history that will be dragged out and twisted to fit whatever supposedly racial event is going on at the time.

Ultimately, it will never go away.

Kind of reminds me of the Emmit Till outcome.

Good ole' America.

Zimmerman, good job.
