That rubbish received 17 "likes". The bold part says it all. Makes me wonder about the future of this country (this guy is 22).
A couple of thoughts regarding tonight:
A. If the situation was reversed and it was a black man stalking and killing a white boy, there's no way the murderer would have been found "not guilty." It's a sad reality.
B. I don't care what the constitutional laws and statutes say, it's a sad day when a murderer is allowed to go free like this
And it doesn't help when the president sticks his nose into it, and even worse when he picks a side.
Many trial watchers, who suspected it would end this way, argued this case should never have been about race.
It would be unfair to make George Zimmerman pay for generations of racial inequalities, no matter how real or painful those troubles may be, some said.
Some suggested it was Zimmerman who was being pilloried to placate angry African-American voters and others who rallied to make the killing a cause.
As legal analysts noted in the months leading up to the testimony, so many people made it so clear they saw the killing in substantially different ways.
To one side, Zimmerman was at worst an overzealous citizen just trying to make sure his neighborhood was safe. To the other, he was a gun-toting predator, hunting, harassing and provoking a fatal fight with an innocent teen.
To one side, Martin was little more than a child returning home after getting a snack. To the other, he was a hulking young man who could have gone inside, talked with Zimmerman or called the police, but instead decided to attack with his fists and paid with his life.
A recap of the trial, verdict
And since people on both sides seemed to have decided the case before the testimony was heard, the verdict was bound to be disturbing no matter how it tilted. Simply put, preconceived notions effectively had people watching two different trials, with every bit of testimony and evidence producing different, and often opposing, reactions in those dueling audiences.
Florida State Attorney Angela Corey, while standing with the disappointed prosecution team, seemed to tip her hat to that reality.
"I never could quite understand people, even people with law degrees, who had not read all of the police reports, who had not read all of the witness statements, yet who came up with opinions one way or the other," she said.
But that is what happened.
"A race war in America is sadly alive and well," conservative radio host Ben Ferguson says. He's frustrated with the many celebrities, sports figures, and activists expressing outrage.
"These people do not care about the facts or respect the law. They want their form of justice and, more importantly, added fame that commenting on this case can bring. These 'professionals' are race baiting to gain a more loyal following."
