Look at that face. Does he look like a thug? Does he look like he wants to shoot you?

Apparently in February of this year, George Zimmerman - clearly a racist sociopath - thought that 17 year old Trayvon Martin was a menace to society. Trayvon was walking thru the neighborhood, eating a bag of skittles and Mr. Zimmerman assumed he was up to no good.

Zimmerman gunned down Trayvon in cold blood. Zimmerman has yet to be arrested.

Today - March 20, 2012 - the Department of Justice has FINALLY decided to do something about this travesty of justice. I think it has to do with the uproar in social media (duh!)


LATIMES dot com:
According to local media reports, Zimmerman took seriously his volunteer role as captain of the neighborhood watch group in the diverse community. He had aspirations of being a police officer at one point in his life, and had called 911 to report suspicious activity in the neighborhood nearly 50 times in the last year, according to the Miami Herald.

Zimmerman's father wrote a letter to the Sun Sentinel that insists that his son is neither a racist nor guilty of being the aggressor in the deadly encounter. The statement was published in full on the newspaper's website. It reads in part:

"George is a Spanish speaking minority with many black family members and friends. He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever.... The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth."

What? What?

The dad must be joking. Did he not hear the 911 tape? Lord, that could be MY son. I pray every day that my child isn't the victim of some thug cop or "wannabe" cop in this case.
It's ironic that, I fear for my son's life more when he encounters a cop than when he encounters a crack dealer on the streets.
That in itself speaks VOLUMES.

To be honest I'd be more intimidated by the guy with the scruffy beard. Bottom line, some people just shouldn't be given power and a gun. Sadly it's usually the people who greatly desire power who abuse it. A Police Watch Block Captain shouldn't be the guy who is most likely to pull a guy; it should be the guy who most likely would do the talking.

That poor kid; sad.

Um make that, "pull a gun," and not "pull a guy." Oops.
