|That smirk say's it all.|
Sometimes I think that Texas is like another country, Florida is too. If people down the street from me in NEW JERSEY hang the old "Star's and Bars" on their door, you really don't have to think much about racism, to know that it's alive and well in Florida. I saw it. EVERYWHERE.
Remember, it took a campaign by Trayvon Martin's parents that prompted nationwide protests, to arrest George Zimmerman, he walked free for 6 weeks after he killed Trayvon Martin. I wonder if Zimmerman wasn't carrying a gun, how different things would be for him and the Martin family? Thousands of people die every year because of our out of control gun laws. The carnage never ends. Corporations and the NRA write gun laws.We don't have to read about the bygone days of the Wild West, it's alive and well all over the US. There's money to be made and gun nuts will hand it over.
I imagine gun sales will be booming after this verdict.
"Fucking punks. These assholes, they always get away," Well, looks like Zimmerman got away this time.
I wonder how the rest of the world looks at us? Maybe if they visit they should bring a bullet proof vest.
All you need to do in Florida to get away with murder is to stalk your victim, provoke a fight, get a bloody nose and some cuts on the back of your head, then end it all with a bang! Oh and just wait until Zimmerman writes his book about this sorry adventure. It's a rags to riches and probably back to rags story, after he pays his lawyers.
I have this theory about no one being accountable for anything any more. From the CEO's of corporations, to government officials and now we see a guy get away with murder, even though he was told by a 911 dispatcher not to follow his victim. This is the new normal in America.
This is only a guess, but I am thinking there will only be more "accidental" "stand your ground" or "oops!" shootings, thanks to this verdict.
No logic needed when standing your ground, just point and shoot.
Lots of Americans think our justice system is the "best in the world," remember O.J. got away with murder too and like O.J., there will probably be a civil suit, since the Martin family couldn't get justice with a jury trial.
So what's the lesson here? That profiling is ok, furthermore it's legal. Stalking someone is ok too. When the kid you're stalking turns around and starts kicking your ass, pull out a gun and shoot, no problem. If you are black and wearing a hoodie, don't walk and please, don't run. If your a volunteer vigilante and you do murder someone, go on Fox News and tell Sean Hannity that it was "God's plan" for your victim to die. Apparently that kind of PR works. Oh and white kids are safe in America.
