    It may sound far fetched, but the energy and outrage that is being seen in Florida may be felt at the ballot box. And the longer these "officials" allow the man responsible to walk free, the entire country is feeling the effects.

    Whether it is warranted or not, the prospects of institutional racism, in this case, could explode into a national incident.

    No. Just more trumped up outrage over a made up issue. Jesse and the boys are pros at getting their rad followers all worked into a frothy frenzy. Fortunately, the average person can see through that transparent facade.

    I don't get it? The republicans have to saddle themselves with this killing? Is that what I'm hearing? :cuckoo:

    Where are Hispanics in all this? I mean, they're a huge block in Fla. One of their own shot this kid. But "Hispanic" is no issue here...

    Of course you think all of this is
    But is it not going to die out, like you would like to see it do. The outrage will grow and the longer that Zimmerman walks free, the issue will become more of a national debate.

    Meet George Zimmerman, The Man Who Killed Trayvon Martin

    He chased down and shot an unarmed man. I see, at the very least, voluntary manslaughter in this case. The longer the authorities hold out, the more it will become a national issue. If the Dems ever needed anything to energize them, this could be it.

    Oh....They really have to stretch this tragedy to make it a political issue in Florida.

    Sure it is

    Politically, this could only help Papa Obama's black base
    which is no real gain for him
    and irritate his Hispanic base
    which is a loss

    As I see the circus unfolding? They'll try...and fail. (Just like the false "War On Women"...) :eusa_whistle:
