It's crazy watching all of this concern about the Z verdict

I get the feeling that the only setting for most of these fine, upstanding biz-ness folks and non-diverse citizen types is scared shitless.

No one wants to be violent... And I seriously doubt that anything like that would ever happen, even if Z skates.

Their concern exists in that echo chamber that they live in that doesn't include voices of color.

BOO!

1. Personally, I don't want to see or be aware of Zimmerman walking out of the courtroom, free,

smirking. Just looking at that picture of Trayvon, light khaki pants spotless at the knees - I don't want a liar and a killer to go free.
Boo! right back at ya!

2. True story!

And isn't that very same paranoia what had Zimmerman following Trayvon in the first place?

I'm more worried about more innocent black kids getting killed by gun nuts jumping at shadows.

3. Which is why I don't watch TV anymore

The more you watch, the less you know.

4. I know someone who got away with murder..

My ex..I know I dodged a bullet

His case has even been profiled on America's Most Wanted..His wife was murdered, under strange circumstances, I know in my hearts of hearts that he did it, state just could not get enough to make it stick...and he was wealthy, got the best lawyers,got lawyer'd up and stopped talking to the police...to this day, he is walking around free...

He has the same smirk that Zimmerboy has, knowing that he got away with something

5. The NRA believers tell us that armed citizens are a good thing

and that the "good guy with the guy can stop the bad guy with the gun" (paraphrased).

Zimmerman is what they think of as the good guy with the gun. Out patrolling his neighborhood to make sure everyone is safe and no crimes are being committed. Then he murders an innocent juvenile in cold blood.

So much for the NRA's vision of paradise.
