Maybe if 12% of the population didn't commit 50% of all violent crime that 12% wouldn't get profiled.

I gave you an answer to your first question. And was very polite about it even though it was obvious you were throwing rocks. You simply didn't like the answer. But deflect all you want.

Actually, in New York at least, it's 75% of violent crime.

“About 70% to 75% of the people described as committing violent crimes — assault, robbery, shootings, grand larceny — are described as being African-American.

If Obama sicks the justice dept on this and they file civil rights violations on Zimmerman then our govt has reached an all time low. Holy cow we had black on white beating where they shouted this is for Trayvon and they didn't being hate crime or civil rights charges. Its almost impossible to get black on white crime labled a hate crime or a civil rights crime. Even if they admit they hate white people or use slurs while committing the acts.

I told you all how long ago this case was a loser. What a waste of time. Had Obama never gotten involved, had the DOJ not went to FLA working behind the scenes to foment protest, this case would not have come to trial. Obama is a friggin joke and as he slides I noticed George W Bush approval rating climbing. Miss Dubya yet?

Whats funny Rho is the justice dept when classifying crime by race lumps hispanics together with whites. Then we have media calling Zimmerman white hispanic. Is there like an effort to hide how much crime blacks commit? Hell yes there is.

If the justice department really tries to call this a hate crime I will be flabbergasted. The case is over and Zimmerman won.

I am glad there was a trial - when the news first came out it was very easy for people like myself to feel that there was some sort of cover-up/lack of prosecution due to Trayvon's race/history. Once the facts got out there it became clear that there was definitely reasonable doubt and I agree with the jury verdict. I think it was important to have a trial to make sure that the facts did get out there particularly in a high profile incident like this.

I think that the case does expose the downside to concealed carry+stand your ground laws. I know the sordid history of why many of these laws were enacted, at the same time I think we need to reconsider the laws and perhaps start limiting them in certain ways.

I agree. I don't see how us all being armed is going to turn out well. I am all for having loaded guns in your home, in your car, at your place of business. But on your person IMO only works when a small % of people are doing it.

I just don't see how being armed with firearms in public could be good if we all did it. When the shooting breaks out in the local mall there would be too much lead flying around IMO. I do think if something happens outside your house or car that you should have the right to exit armed. But not concealed. You should only do it if you see a legitmate reason the gun needs to be used. Someone being assaulted or killed, your property or even a neighbors property at risk.

The hard working young black men with dreams are getting ****ed over by the thug culture of the black race. The culture where being street is respected is making it that much harder for them to rise out of it. Obama should focus on getting them out of the hood but food stamps and welfare is all he does for them. That and placate Al Sharptons when a race issue pops up.

Trayvon was OBVIOUSLY the aggressor of Physical violence as evidenced by the condition of each person's body. The amount of damage on Zimmerman's body could constitute aggravated assault/battery.

1) "These people are always getting away"--RACIST? where's race being specified or are you a mind reader?

but do you want to know who did use racial epithets? Trayvon Martin :



2) The civil lawsuit against the HOA was already settled:

"Trayvon Martin’s parents have settled a wrongful death claim with the homeowners association of the Retreat at Twin Lakes, the Florida housing complex where their son was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.

The undisclosed sum is believed to be more than $1 million, the Orlando Sentinel reported

And as I said before, that is why Zimmerman needed a gun. He's no man. He couldn't fight back against an unarmed teen when he had around 40-60 pounds on him? The hospital personnel said his injuries were minimal. What had Martin done to have Zimmerman follow him and confront him? I don't view what Zimmerman says as evidence, apparently you do. And don't come back and say look at his injuries. They were in no way life threatening, not even near and he was the instigator.

Good for Martin's parents. I guess the civil lawsuit I heard about is one trying to be brought against Zimmerman.

I never said all crime but the black population commits 50% of all murders and 55% of all robberies. It comes from the FBI UC reports. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr...#disablemobile

Is that proof enough for you?

And I definitely don't think neighborhood watch people should be armed. In fact, they should be barred from carrying weapons. They're supposed to be adjuncts to the police and simply report what they see. They're not trained to enforce the law. It's difficult enough to get properly trained police.

Those are amazing numbers. Has society failed this group of people or is there some cultural force driving this?
