    I dont recall you taking this position when it was Zimmerman/Martin and the race baiting ass clowns all came to town. Funny how that works...

    Can't we just say George Zimmerman was aquited and his case of self defense had nothing to do with race?

    It didn't have anything to do with race and neither does this. Yet everyone is blasting others for making that one about race but want them to continue to do so and keep the race issue going by commenting on every crime how race played into it. So do you want it about race or not?

    I'm of the opinion that he should have been acquitted, so....but my problem with Z was not racial, it was that he could have avoided the situation and didn't.

    It's fun to get everybody to paste strawmen on me. The usual suspects, too....so predictable.

    I agree, one ended with a dead black teen, and the other ended with a dead white WWII vet...If you ask me the latter is the more cowardly crime...

    Had this been one black guy who got caught then released because he said it was self defense do you not think there would be outrage?
    There is rightly outrage now...deal with it.

    And yet you are all bringing color into it while blasting the other side for doing the exact same thing.
    Really? What white supremacist group put a price tag on the assailants heads "dead or alive"?

    But nobody who is doing that is seeing they are doing the same thing. That's what they don't seem to get.
    That's because they're not doing the same things as what happened over TM...Hell, to read your postings on the subject, you seem to think that this story is barely news worthy at all....

    I don't recall you saying that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton needed to get involved then.....

    See how funny things work?

    Tell Reverand Al, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, the Martin family,and all the people in the streets that the Zimmerman Martin case had nothing to do with race.

    Funny you don't mention my first post on this crime that called it cowardly. All I am saying now it's hard to compare apples to oranges and we should not bring up race and other cases and focus on this one. Must be newsworthy to you so you can keep the race issue alive.

    I would gladly tell them that as I am saying the same thing to let the issue go in this case.
