The Trayvon Martin & George Zimmerman Story

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

And he doesn't have to bother concealing his gun because everybody in America knows he carries one.

I can see why he'd be looking over his shoulder. There are a lot of mean, vengeful people out there, and all the ways they can think of to get even aren't ways that can be prevented with a gun.

If GZ is eligible for a passport, I think he ought to just drop out of sight for a few years. I actually feel sorry for the guy, though his current situation is his own doing and he sounds like someone more inept and un-self-aware than anything else.

This dude was just on Hannity saying that African Americans ought to apologize to HIM. Now that's chutzpah!

Maybe Zimmerman had a good reason... was his wife wearing a hoodie?

Clearly the stress of this incident is eating away at his family. Yet, the diversity squad continues with their witch hunt. I wouldn't be surprised if this is yet another reiteration of accuse first and defame the person in order to taint an investigation.

This guy made a huge mistake. Instead of moving away from the invading scum he chose to do something. His crime was caring.

He should have gone to a wine tasting and talked about diversity at a safe distance from the diversity. It works in Madison. It might have worked for this man.

Wow. I didn't even know Zimmerman's wife was black.

Predictably the unstable unsupportive wife recants her story (in fact it was noting more than a story) because she loves her husband. Police standards of questioning females is known to be ineffective, therefore accusations are taken as fact. This is yet another example of that.

Also, a predictable "We the media told you so, he is a loose cannon!" is brewing in the media. They have to do that; it hurts the chances of Zim's libel lawsuits gaining any steam.

I'm done. This is a case of a lot of dumb people (including Martin and all of the Florida authorities involved) acting dumb towards one another culminating into a huge pile of dumb. No law can fix this shit.

Actually, "He hit me 101" is standard fare at divorce clinics run by law offices. The female allegation business is a huge cash cow for law offices. You can't make this stuff up.

Sounds like you had a very messy divorce.

"Fortunate" isn't the first word that comes to mind when I think about my two divorces but now that I know it's standard practice for the wife to say "he hit me" I see now that I was, indeed, quite fortunate.

Zimmerman's lawyer has had enough. He fired George as his client.

Only for the domestic stuff. He's still in there for the defamation suit.
