Lets see how long it takes for Obama and Holder to decide it was not fair and Federal Charges need to be filed.

Obama and Holder can only see racial injustice.. They can never see the "other" side because its too white for them..

Obama should have kept his mouth shut, instead of saying, "if I had a son, he would have looked just like Trayvon." He put race into this case. He and holder will stoop to any level to get the attention of themselves.

Well, it is all about stirring the pot. Keep everyone inflamed and busy, to take your eye off them. Maybe that works for some people. Government is out of control, and they have no reason to poke their noses in Florida's laws. What can I do about it, vote those radical's out. In the mean time,*****it up, it's a long ride.

Here's a question for all of you mouth breathing wing nut right wing conspiracy theorizing whack jobs that constitute the majority of people posting here:

If your teenage son/nephew/cousin had gone out of the house and told his parents he was headed to Cenex or Loaf-n-Jug to pick up a soda, and on his way home, he noticed that someone was following him. And that person continued to lurk in the shadows, following every step that he took, and eventually the person that was following him confronted him - and if your relative that had just gone to the store to get a soda realized that this guy was also armed - what would you hope your relative would do?

If faced with that situation, would you tell them to submit to the will of this person? Or would you tell them to fight for your life - because statistics dictate that if you submit to someone like this, you will most likely die.

What would you do? Answer me that, you great army of trolls.

Oh, and this is for you @billdoesntgetit:

Love this quote from you:

'I have lost considerable respect for the black race over the last couple years..bad thing is its only the few rotten ones like Obama and Holder then spoil it for all the good "n's" in the world..'

Yeah. Because I'm guessing that you and the black community were like two peas in a pod before Obama came into office. You probably celebrated Kwanzaa and went to the Million Man March right after you finished reading a book by Maya Angelou. I'll give you a second to Wikipedia all of that.

You're a joke. But you already know that. Because anyone that spends as much time on the MDN website commenting on articles as you do is a special kind of person filled with a special kind of intellect. Keep on posting - reading what you write is entertaining, in a sad/no hope for humanity sort of way.

You had a very nice looking young black man, 17 years old. You had a Hispanic, nice looking man 26 (under Obama Care). Maybe he was 27. And it is racist. I thought you people were fighting to let people thru our borders. He was acquitted, you were not there, and Trayvon was visiting his father at his girlfriends house. Zimmerman lived there. Do you really know for sure what happened. Does Obama?

willgarr did the skittles jump out of the bag and grab zimmerman and slam his head on the ground? Did they bloody Zimmermans nose? Did they call Zimmerman a white cracker? Garr get smart.. your comments make you sound really stupid.. I guess people talk dumb when they realize they are defeated and have no other avenue.. Martin beat Zimmerman..not the skittles..

It is good to be king. Obama uses drones to kill other brown people in Pakistan and Afghanistan and no charges are filed. The President can kill people at will and nobody complains. You would think they are hypocrites or something like that.

It's the pot calling the kettle black.

It was ethical, legal, moral, and justified, killing is then ok.

Can't argue with that, so President Obama has a license to kill.

Nobody is rioting over that fact.

I hope Zimmerman's lawyer sue NBC for everything they can get, for messing with Zimmerman's words and reporting them as fact. And Holder now wants a open and honest conversation about this case, he should not use words in doesn't understand.

All of this hoopla in the news today is just a prime example of why Blacks can never follow the American Justice system.

Zimmerman was on trial.. he was found to have acted in self defense. A Jury of 6 people selected by both sides.. found Zimmerman not guilty.

The blacks cannot except our laws..they now are demanding more.. demanding another lawsuit be filed..

Is it any wonder people dislike the black race and the way it acts? Jessie Jackson and the Hairy dude are out marching against the American justice system. And they wonder why the whites hate them. They have proven time after time they cannot live by the laws of the land.. Everything is oh POOR LIL ME!@!!

How come no one marched against the blacks when OJ was found not guilty? Is it because they have more brains and act like humans instead of taking to the streets like animals?

What a poor excuse of human beings they have turned out to be.

Blacks always feel picked on. Even Obama feels sorry for himself..

willgarr my black friends feel the same way I do. Its the Jacksons and the idiots that make it hard on all the black people.. Its Obama having beer summits and "wishing he was man enough to produce a son like Martin" that*****off the good black people.

Ask any decent black..he will tell you this country has been set back 20 years by the likes of these so called leaders.. They are nothing more then Riot instructors..

Can you imagine a world where the black community is willing to except a jurys findings if one of there own has been found guilty? I can't.

How come Jackson and the Hairy creep are not in Chicago protesting the DAILY sometimes HOURLY KILLING of their black community?

How come Garr? Lets hear the reason right from your mouth.. don't be shy tell us why Martins death is important enough to riot but the blacks being killed in Chicago are not important? Or why black babies being aborted isnt reason to protest by the libs..

Speak up Garr tell us all why....

Racist is used in every conversation, mostly used by Liberals. Why was Zimmerman called a "White Hispanic" by the media, and Black people like Al Sharpton, just because his Father was White. What should we call Obama? His Mother was White. A White Black. Talk, people are using, to make this more into something than a horrible situation in American neighborhoods.

dustoff Garr is to ignorant to realize some of us have a life..before and after the MDN. This is the only place Garr can post any more and he has no friends.. I guess we can all understand why.

I for one am tired of the tip toeing around kissing the backs sides of these wimpy people who cannot face up to the facts of life.

I stand by my comments.. The blacks got Obama for a President and they are still out Rioting.. This country is 12% black. 9% of them will work hard and give you the shirt off their back the other 3% like Jackson, Sharpton King and such will undo any good that has ever been done for the African American.

They all get this Poor me attitude and Obama and Holder just add fuel to the fire.

Its a given fact yet dumc offs refuse to recognize it or else they are just too blind and cannot absorb what is going on here in America.. .
