Obama and Holder have their boogeyman, despite the fact that Zimmerman has been proven not to be a racist, and even the Martin family and the prosecution admitted it as well. The race pimps wants their pound of Caucasian flesh, despite the fact that Zimmerman is Hispanic. If George's first name had been Jorge, this wouldn't have went anywhere.
Obama and Holder got what they wanted, which was ginning up racial divide for political advantage, while keeping the focus off of Fast & Furious, IRS Tea Party targeting, NSA domestic spying, and Benghazi.
It's really that simple, and most of the race pimps like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, are willful puppets in that scheme to distract everyone from how our government is further destroying our liberty and freedoms.
Wise up, folks.
I think that's off the mark. The media is beholden to the government. Administrations come and go.
This story does exactly what most stories in the US media do. Allows morons to pick sides... The situation is gray enough for people with a racial component to their reasoning to display that thinking.
I don't know anyone that believes that, given the evidence available, Zimmerman was beyond his rights to defend himself. But ask folks to look back at the chain of events that lead up to the shooting and many here just sever the chain and relieve Zimmerman of his responsibility entirely. Those that say that it wasn't about the Stand your Ground law are officially incorrect as a member of the jury has stated it was considered during deliberations.
The administration considers this a radioactive topic primarily because it's a no win. But the government at large from money management, Congress, NSA and HLS? Those guys are pleased as punch that folks here and across the country are arguing about the most simple case imaginable... Because the time spent on this case keeps folks stupid on other subjects.
I'm beginning to think that people, even some here prefer it that way. Makes life easy and you don't actually have to do any real work looking at a situation and analyzing how we got there, who is responsible and how we make changes so our government returns to serving the people instead of itself and the top.
All this for a bowl of borscht.
