Brooke also talked to her legal panel about race in the Zimmerman case. Listen as they discuss how people across the country reacted to the not-guilty verdict.
In response to the previous comment- we will never know if Martin was using cannabis not because of the media but because he is dead. I think we need to be real about the race situation in this country. This will not stop with George Zimmerman until we address it. As a white female living in a predominantly black neighborhood- I am telling you racism exists and I can honestly say that I have advantages that my neighbors and good friends don't. I think we need to stop fighting about whether or not it exists and start doing something about it. One last thing- maybe Trayvon should not have reacted in the way he did but it would have been wonderful if he was also given his day in court to argue self defense. Just my personal opinion but if Heorge Zimmerman couldnt defend himself in a fight then he shouldn't have confronted anyone-let alone be allowed to carry a firearm
I'm pretty sure there were more posts associated with this topic – unless Christina posted this more than once.
Interesting that CNN only seems to have kept the one post that supports what seems to be their thinking on race and the Zimmerman trial.
After giving this case a great deal of consideration, in my opinion, I think both Trayvon artin and George Zimmerman were both to blame. Neither one identified themselves to each other – Trayvon should have told George Zimmerman that he was going home because he lived there and Zimmerman, since he was the one to have approached Trayvon Martin first, should have identified himself as the neighborhood watch volunteer and asked him if he lived in the neighborhood. If this had been done, maybe they both would have gone their separate ways. In my opinion, both of them were wrong and caused the tragedy that took place.
Trayvon had a younger step brother that lived in the house. If a grown man is following you as a teenager, you don't want them to know where you live because it puts the younger sibling at risk if its a pedophile. Zimmerman's inconsistencies showed that he wasn't credible but there wasn't any witnesses to say otherwise. The only witness is dead. For all we know, Zimmerman could have been on top first and Martin got free and got on top of Zimmerman by the time witnesses showed up. But there should be some time of law that protects innocent citizens from being shot to death after being confronted by a grown adult.
What's next for George Zimmerman? Well apparently he'll get his gun back so maybe we'll hear soon that he has killed again.
in self defense of course.
a volunteer organized to suppress and punish crime is called a vigilante....that is the reality of those types of acts.....that's the truth about zimmerman....
