First thing I thought.Smelly Occupiers without those stupid,hideous Guy Fawkes masks.
SPE: I know they are waiting in the wings - right behind the OWS guys. They are all birds of international feathers .
That was my initial thought as well. Occupy Boston....

Jesse and Al do not preach at mega churches. Im not even sure those two ever actually have been a pastor at any church lol. And Farrakhan is Nation of Islam, nothing at all to do with Christianity.

What church is Al Sharpton the head of, the church of MSNBC? How about Jesse Jackson, where does he preach each Sunday?

I completely agree

And how do you know who assaulted who? How do you know that zimmerman didnt tackle the kid when the kid was just trying to get away from some freak who was following him? I heard zimmermans 911 call and i heard the call where you can hear someone crying out for help and it wasnt him yelling. I can tell you right now that if it was my son that had been shot and killed all because someone thought he looked “suspicious” then I’d be losing my mind. It may have been a complete accident that the gun went off or he might have shot him thinking the kid was gonna harm him but the point is, he put himself in a situation that he never should have been in..and a young man lost his life because of it.
Well if some hispanic guy is chasing me with a gun and I feel I cant get away chances are I’d have to turn around and confront him…

Anybody that calls this “self-defense” is out of their mind. I’m all for self defense laws and I’m all for Americans being able to carry guns. What I’m not for though is some paranoid vigilante going around acting like he’s a cop, this guys wife seems just as unbalanced as he does, she said that he’s helped “solve alot of crimes”.
I like people who will watch out for their neighborhoods but this went far beyond that. This man PUT himself in a situation that he never should have been in. I heard the 911 call where you can hear that boy screaming for help, it sounded to me like he was scared for his life. I mean how would any of us feel if we’re just walking along and some jerk starts falling us and he’s got a gun holstered on his hip (im just guessing it was holstered, he may have had it out already). I know if that had happened to me I’d have run for it or confronted the guy and asked him why the hell he’s following me. I hate that most Americans now days dont feel the need to help someone when they are screaming for help, we all just go call the damn government and hope for the best. I cant say for certain i’d have done differently then those people but I pray that if I’m ever in that position to go to the aid of someone screaming for help that i’ll have the courage to do the right thing. I will say though that people like Sharpton always take situations like this and make it worse, make it all about race. It has nothing to do with race, has to do with righ
i live in florida and have a carry........so far i see this as an idiot killing someone ...not self defense..........i would never chase someone to kill shoot them unless they shot first.....if they didn't hit anyone i would be in cover, not chasing p.s. i have laser grips and rarely miss..no need to chase
Do you know only one side of this story? If so how dare you judge.
This "17 year old child" assaulted this man without a doubt. He had grass stains on the back of his clothing and other signs of a fight. People heard screaming before the gun fire.
This man is not a flight risk and I have no idea how many stories I have heard of heroes that followed criminals and stopped crimes because they ignored police that only clean up after the damage is done. The police will always say do not follow so it is meaningless just standard procedure to protect themselves against lawsuits. Most police officers could care less about victims or at least care far less about victims than fellow officers. Better to let the shooting stop then show up. I am sorry but by 1960 or before standards all police are cowards now days not their own doing but their supervisors doings. I respect police but unions and officers have destroyed their ability to protect.
Thus we need people like this willing to step in and make neighborhoods safer. I bet when the facts are in this man is innocent. But if not I hope he gets the harshest sentence possible. But give some time for a case to be made. Arrest him too soon and if guilty he may be acquitted. Many cases are lost because cops arrest before the facts are all in,.
Couldn't agree with you guys anymore. This is the kind of idiot with a gun that ruins gun rights for all law abiding carriers everywhere. I feel for this boys family and hope an arrest will follow shortly. I have had my home broken into and I'm all for protecting you life and property but this is going entirely to far. However for this to become a race issue is wrong.
And how do you know who assaulted who? How do you know that zimmerman didnt tackle the kid when the kid was just trying to get away from some freak who was following him? I heard zimmermans 911 call and i heard the call where you can hear someone crying out for help and it wasnt him yelling. I can tell you right now that if it was my son that had been shot and killed all because someone thought he looked "suspicious" then I'd be losing my mind. It may have been a complete accident that the gun went off or he might have shot him thinking the kid was gonna harm him but the point is, he put himself in a situation that he never should have been in..and a young man lost his life because of it.
I support "stand your ground" laws 110%. I support 2nd Amendment rights 110%. That being said, unless Zimmerman was witnessing Martin in the process of assaulting someone or breaking into his house, Zimmerman had no justification for confronting Martin. The cops had been called. If Martin was simply walking through the neighborhood, "looking suspicious" isn't justification for initiating an armed confrontation immediately after calling 911.
Given the reported facts, Zimmerman's actions aren't protected by any law in this case. The problem here doesn't appear to be with the "stand your ground" law, but rather the shocking simple-mindedness of the cops interpreting the law as written.
Either critical info has been omitted in the reporting of this story, or the cops involved are stupid to the point of being a danger to the community at large.
At any rate, Zimmerman sounds like a dim bulb with a hero complex who has no business cruising the neighborhood armed.
Al Sharpton is a demogogue, but he may be right in this case.
Who knows what happened for sure.. One thing is sure Zimmerman is entitled to his day in court...But that doesn't fit the liberal Self loathing white America nor does it help racial con-artists like Sharpton fill their coffers. Sharpton, Jackson, the silly new Black Panther party, The extremely bigoted DOJ and even Barry need this event to fan the flames ... their peeps were getting complacent they need to stoke the fires.. in order to gin up their base and they need to get white folk worried about appearing racist ..At the end of the day Zimmerman needs his day in court.. Once Sharpton got involved I stopped caring about this kid and sure enough it turns out his parents are making money off his name... his record shows he was a punk.. Sharpton is my compass if he is against it I am for it ....if he supports it then it must be a scam.

Somebody who lives in Hawaii should go check that same book for Obamas half sisters name, Maya Kassandra Soetoro born in 1970.

Not a great thing to read about the day after obama had a dinner meeting with a bunch of the top technology guys including mark zuckerberg and the twitter chief.
