College Expels George Zimmerman Following Trayvon Martin Shooting

In light of Trayvon Martin‘s death, Seminole State College has expelled George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin. The college released a statement Thursday addressing the “high-profile controversy” — citing student safety as the sole reason.

“Due to the highly charged and high-profile controversy involving this student, Seminole State has taken the unusual but necessary step this week to withdraw Mr. Zimmerman from enrollment. This decision is based solely on our responsibility to provide for the safety of our students on campus as well as for Mr. Zimmerman.”

1. Good for Seminole State College.

Somebody is being very clear-headed about this.

2. Hope he's not a sociology major

He's looking at an F minus -- at the least.

4. "Innocent until proven guilty"

is the standard set for our judicial system.

This, however, is the court of public opinion, where no such standard exists.

I believe Zimmerman committed 1st deegree murder, and no hand-wringing about Zimmerman's rights, or how the public is abusing them, will not convince me otherwise.

Without a single scrap of hard evidence which clears him, and a veritable shitstorm of evidence which implicates him, suggesting to the public that the public is being unfair towards Zimmerman, is unreasonable.

5. DING DING DING! JFN1, you're our grand prize winner!

Without a single scrap of hard evidence which clears him, and a veritable shitstorm of evidence which implicates him, suggesting to the public that the public is being unfair towards Zimmerman, is unreasonable.

Furthermore, the school has two potential problems: either him attacking someone for criticizing him, or someone attacking him. He can study at home in the meantime, can return once he's cleared.
