    It doesn't matter whether he actually IS guilty or not.
    To them, justice MEANS that he is found guilty. Short of that, they will not be happy. Ever.

    This is very true. They will never be happy!

    They already soaked the homeowners association for a cool million!

    Sounds reasonable to me since MArtin was a minor and his parents are responsible for his actions.

    How much media attention would this murder have received if the three men were white and the waitress was black?

    I wonder what the repercussions will be for the neighborhood watch group? And the insurance for the HOA may increase, so all the residents will be assessed for that increase as well ... including Mr. Martin, himself, since he lives there. In fact, the insurance company could require them to disband the neighborhood watch? That would be unfortunate for the residents over the long run. This could be an unintended consequence of a case that possibly never should have gone to court.

    Edit: Oops, forgot ... with that million dollars Mr. Martin can move out of that development.

    have we all forgotten all the cash Saint Z was given by folks world wide?
    the same cash he and wife of Saint Z lied about afore the trial?
    The same saintly wife that was charged with some kind of cash cover up?
    Note nobody seems to recal that pre-trial cash dust up? Saint Z is loaded 'cause of all the dough nations.

    Franco, also saw a story about a 16 yr old black boy whose body was found in a boarded up building. Relatives suspect it was because he had refused to join a gang at school. No suspects of interest in that case.

    Ken, at least in my opinion Zimmerman mucked up royally by putting himself in the position he was in when he shot Trayvon. But that's not the point, at least of my little tirade. The point is this was turned into poor quality circus/race thing. I'd be willing to bet money, if I had any, that we would have never heard a peep if the shooter had been black or the shootee was white. I don't know how things are in Vermont but in this neck of the woods the race card is over played in a big way and it is getting awfully tiresome.

    Ken, did you get my PM a while back?
