Discord, details flow after Zimmerman trial

The George Zimmerman murder trial is over, but details from the case continue to emerge at a dizzying pace.

Several jurors have spoken out after the verdict. The prosecution's key witness has been offered a full ride to college. And Attorney General Eric Holder blasted "stand your ground" laws but gave no hint about whether Zimmerman will face civil rights charges.

Here's the latest on the Zimmerman trial aftermath:

    If you live in a country where a citizen gets arrested for fishing without a liscence but illegal aliens get free medical care you might live in a country that was created by geniuses but run by idiots.
    If you live in a country where hard work is punished with high taxes but laziness is rewarded with food stamps, welfare, two full years of unemployment without proof of searching for a job and government subsidized housing you might live in a country that was created by geniuses but run by idiots.
    If you live in a country that suspends a little boy from school for telling a little girl she is pretty but forces gay history down that same boy's throat you may live in a country that was created by geniuses but run by idiots.
    If you live in a country that violates a man's civil and c-o-n-s-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n-a-l rights by continuing to persecute him after the court declares him NOT GUILTY you may live in a country that was created by geniuses but run by idiots.
    The list goes on but you should know by now liberalism is the l-e-p-r-o-s-y of society.

      Plenty of innuendos but Not one word of actual truth in your gibberish laden rant. Oh the fishing license part is probably true. And local school boards decide what is considered PC. That's political correct y'all. Jeez pull it together man!

    "It is better that the guilty walk free than to convict the innocent." As spoken by one of your founding fathers. The courts have spoken, NOT GUILTY in all three cases of O.J. Simpson, Casey Anthony, andGeorge Zimmerman. It is better that they walk free than to falsely convict someone like my friend Kelvin Kaigler. Again this once great country was created by geniuses and is now run by idiots. To say any different would make you the useful idiot that allows this Usurper in Chief to ignore the c-o-n-s-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n.

      Kelvin Kaigler's jury has spoken, also. It goes both way, Hamsta. You should accept THAT jury's verdict.

      Chrissy, there is a big difference between fact and opinion. Fact: the consti tu tion protects the common citizen from oppresive persecution by a corrupt tyrannical government. Kelvin has the right to an appeal to overturn his conviction and Zimmerman has the protection of the Double Jeopardy clause. Maybe some fools need to study a civics book on their own instead of believing the crap that is spewed by liberal college professors because this is fact not opinion and it is not up for debate.

    Time to move on to the next polarizing event in the United States. Nothing to see here, move along.
    Wish there would be some new stories.

    Actually chrissy you and your friends are the fools. The con sti tution was written to protect the common citizen from being persecuted by corrupt tyrannical government. Kelvin has the right to file an appeal granting him the chance to overturn his conviction and Zimmerman has the right to claim double jeopardy for being persecuted after winning his court case.

    The facts are: the prosecution did not have enough evidence to convict Zimmerman so to appease the race baiters they assembled a dog and pony show for a shsm trial. They put a white coat of paint on a Mexican, Zimmerman, who was on trial for defending himself from a thug who should have been serving an adult sentence for possesing controlled substances at school ( federal law mandates a minimum 5 year sentence for any person 17 or older) portraying Trayvon as an innocent 10 year old while they tried in vain to use maternal instinct to milk a guilty verdict from the utters of an all woman jury.

    Cant have it both ways @ Hamsta. And the government ISNT persecuting GZ! Just the ordinary citizens who have enough common sense to know the difference between right and wrong AND the GUTS to speak out about it ARE! Thats not persecution, thats voicing our opinions!

      Hey all. Judging by the comments on here as well as other blog sites, the nation has never been so divided. We can only point out fingers at one man. His name is Obama-The Great Divider

      My behind. Congress has an approval rate of about 12%. To put this in perspective, the approval rates of sone other events: President Nixon during Watergate (24%)
      BP during the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (24%)
      The idea of the US adopting communism (11%)
      Yeah, Congress has only a 1% lead over approval for COMMUNISM.

      Exactly because they r fighting Obama on his outrageous policies. BTW. Where is your outrage about eight black men being shot dead by other black men in Chicago last night? Where is Sharpton, Obama, ond Jackson on that? They are all racists for picking on GZ and ignoring these atrocities going on in obamas back yard

    Hey banasy, have you been paying attention to the liberal Mecca known as Detroit lately? Liberalism has given them bankruptcy, high unemployment, major population decrease, blight, gang warfare, a failing school system, high taxes and poverty. Why can't you liberals learn from your mistakes? Why are you trying to force the same on the rest of America? Leave liberalism where it belongs, IN DETROIT.

      All of the former industrial cities look like that, Hamsta. Since manufacturing has largely been outsourced overseas, what do you expect? My God, get some perspective.
