7. I swear that Joe Madison mentioned that Trayvon was tested for
Edited on Wed Mar-21-12 07:08 PM by tnlefty
drugs and alcohol and that Zimmerman, as you mentioned, was not.

My youngest is 17, and I can't imagine what Trayvon's parents and family are going through. Sometimes, when I allow my thoughts to go there, I can't imagine what his father is dealing with living in the same community with the vigilante, full of himself, (not enough swear words), shithead who murdered his son. I honestly don't think that I could control myself.

I'll mention a warning for this link, but if you missed it, I know what I heard, and my 22 year old knew nothing about what was supposedly said, and his jaw dropped when he heard it. /

I'm angry that Zimmerman is being treated with kid gloves even though the Sanford police are very familiar with him (battery charges dropped against a police officer), and his flurry of calls to them. Perhaps some research on Zimmerman's family looking for any connections to them and anyone, even the dog catcher, in government in FL is in order.

I wish you luck in getting rid of the radical right in your state. They're passing all kinds of bullshit legislation here in TN, but I'm not certain that the folks here who are furious will be able to replace the nutters with more sane candidates - redistricting has led to many democratic state reps. and senators retirement. I'll be living in a crazy shithole for a while longer.

edit: I didn't go to your link before I mentioned what Joe Madison stated, as it's in the link. :blush:
