From Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin: 58 Years of Justice Denied

Michael Moore tweeted this evening:

"Had a gun-toting Trayvon Martin stalked an unarmed George Zimmerman, and then shot him to death . . .  DO I EVEN NEED TO COMPLETE THIS SENTENCE?"

I am sick of young black men being killed with impunity.

J.W. Milam, Roy Bryant, George Zimmerman - they are all the same.

Are we still stuck in the days of Emmett Till in the Mississippi Delta of 1955?

This is a sad day for the United States, just another day in the South. Seems that the ignorance , arrogance and hatred never ends.

This reminds me of the South Park episode Volcano... Whenever the characters see a creature, they shoot it after yelling, "It's coming right for us!", so they can claim the shooting was in self-defense.

Since you went there, I just hope you don't conduct yourself as unethical as the prosecution did in the attempted lynching of Mr. Zimmerman did. That is all.

Stick to Cruise line news. You all are butthurt about a 17 year old getting shot but don't know or care about a 13 month old getting shot. The likes of which Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton have changed it into something it's not, a racial issue. Zimmerman defended himself from a thug Martin who was high from THC. Although it didn't make you aggressive, it makes you paranoid. Instead of being civil and negotiating with Zimmerman, he jumped him. If anyone paid attention to the trial proceedings that is what you get. Meanwhile a thug shoots a 13 month old baby and you don't riot over that? Is it because the shooter was black? Isn't that racist itself?

I'm sick of all the violence as well. Zimmerman has a right to patrol the streets, and if he was attacked/provoked by Martin, its sounds like Martin made a poor decision to bring fists to a gun fight. Race has nothing to do with this tragedy.
