    Sorry, Pat. It’s my understanding that “stand your ground” was not used as a defense.

    People are calling and doing a lot of bad things to Zimmerman. So far the President got involved saying “If I had a son he would look like Travon”, the Justice Department helped in a rally against Zimmerman, then they tagged on that Manslaughter charge at the last minute of the trial and now the Civil Rights investigation. Holder should be careful he will hang himself; Zimmerman might just launch his own Civil Rights suit against the Government.

    Pat, if the only difference in this case was that Mr. Zimmerman was Black, and Mr. Martin Hispanic, you would praise Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law stating it it helped a Black Man defend himself against the attack of a Hispanic Man.

    You would agree the Not Guilty Verdict was the correct Verdict.

    Stand Your Ground was never used and the Prosecution stated in closing arguments this was not about race.

    As the martial arts master said, “Think twice before using your skills, each confrontation has the potential to be your last.”

    Really STUPID cartoon. The NRA had nothing to do with it. It was self defense.

    @Radish
    True, or your opponent’s last, and the real question is deciding when your opponent SHOULD be your opponent……

    Why do all these people who point to our justice system as the best in the world refuse to accept a verdict they don’t agree with?

    The best system in the world would not allow the case to be tried in the media before a verdict is reached.

    Too bad the public doesn’t realize the two “innocent” items found on TM—Skittles & Arizona Iced Tea—are key ingredients in cutting an illegal street drug called “Lean”.

    All the toons I’ve seen so far on the Zimmerman trial today are so over-the-top as to be offensive and counter-productive. What a waste of energy

    Perhaps Pat would feel differently if he were lying on the ground, with someone bigger, stronger, and younger on top of him beating him the face and breaking his nose. As tragic as it was, Trayvon was no angel. Read his tweets. Read about his fight club you tube videos ( they’ve been removed so you can no longer view them). Then start getting outraged at the number of young black men who die every day at the hands of other young black men.
