What's next for George Zimmerman following the jury's verdict in the Trayvon Martin killing? What's next for gun laws and race relations?

Not guilty does not mean innocent. This is round one.

I read where there has already been a riot in Chicago after the Zimmerman decision. I hope it's the only one that occurs because Zimmerman was found innocent.

I personally believe anyone committing a race riot should be killed on the spot.

Comrade, yogi has no sense for the truth. He makes things up as he goes.

Oakland Riots After George Zimmerman Verdict Were Smaller Than First Reported

www.inquisitr.com/848459/oakland-riots-after-george-zimmerman-verdict-were-smaller-than-first-reported/

The people of Oakland have rioted for the Raiders winning the Super Bowel.

No surprise that Nimrod and the other pathetic liberals on this forum don't understand or respect the rule of law.

IMO - The media is one of our main problems! They instigate things such as riots so they will have something to report about. Today, when the media reports on something, one never knows whether it is the truth or even actually happened.

Zimmerman will lay low, though there are other issues he'll have to answer to, so his legal woes are far from over. He'll have this stigma for the rest of his life, a scarlet letter, so to speak.

Let's hope that tempers wane and we're past the worst. Judging by some of the tweets I've read though, who knows.

By: yogiman on 7/15/13 at 6:06

Well, I see where the New Black Panthers has declared war because of Zimmerman being found innocent. Are our court supposed to find all cases in their favor?

It looks like Gitmo need a few more residents.

And by the way, bfra, I read that on www.wnd.com/ Try it, you might like it.

What's next for gun laws and race relations?

As far as gun laws, don't hold your breath. This country is paranoid, conspiracy driven and quite fearful. A boogeyman is behind every tree and there is no shortage of knee-jerk reactions instead of rational debate.

As far as race relations, racism is alive and well...it's always simmering below the surface...always.

FYI, for those with very little critical thinking skills, the previous points are directed at both sides of the debate.

If left up to the TV Cable stations, and nothing juicier comes along, the Zimmerman
story and opponents wanting revenge will be the news for at least another week.
Comments comparing this story and facts to those of the outright murder of some
other tragic murders of former Civil Rights leaders and victims is so wrong and
demeaning to those cases. Mr. Zimmerman is marked for a tough life and probably should find another spanish speaking country to live in.

The brainless blob doesn't know who ask what or when. He just throws in some of his racist or communist bull for the heck of it. Blow windbag, somewhere else.

No surprise that Nimrod and the other pathetic liberals on this forum don't understand or respect the rule of law.

The flea makes the fourth post on this subject and it is entirely inaccurate. First of all, no where in my three posts did I disrespect or make any reference of not understand the law. Not guilty is not a declaration of innocent. Second the flea makes a wide sweeping statement that, “the other pathetic liberals on this forum don’t understand or respect the rule of law.” He must be related to Comrade, yogi because he makes similar unfounded lies.

By: Kosh III on 7/15/13 at 6:32

"Not guilty is not a declaration of innocent."

Correct. Zimmerman is innocent---just like OJ Simpson.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 6:39

The only one riot took place in Oakland, not Chicago as yogi posted yesterday. It was not a big riot and did not last very long. It seems to me that the fringe right-wing-nuts are trying to bait a riot.

So why don’t you retract you wild tail of rioting in Chicago Comrade, yogi? To afraid ot to little to admit it?

By: Rocket99 on 7/15/13 at 6:40

What do you expect from a jughead? He/she has that name for a reason. I'm guessing this person is a card carrying member, possibly founding member of the Tea Bagger Party.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:00

Why didn't you pathetic and ignorant liberals riot when OJ was acquitted?

Because you are intellectually dishonest buttwypes.

By: yogiman on 7/15/13 at 7:03

jughead is carrying that name for the same reason you're carrying "Rocket99", Rockety99... just like everyone else on this site. I guess you're all embarrassed about your mentality on common issues and don't want other to know who you are.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:05

flea-

Just because you would act like a child, does not mean that liberals would like a child.

B/T/W I am not a liberal, punk.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:06

Rocketbrains: you are right--I do carry a card. It's a concealed carry permit.

So this is why you call yourself yogiman, Comrade yogi?

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:07

Nimrod: You are both a liberal AND a liar. But, I repeat myself.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:11

I'm not a liberal and you are not a conservative, flea. You are a punk and a jerk.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:13

Nimrod: Yawn. Another yawn.

Can you hurry up and choke on Michael Moore's semen and die?

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:14

By the law George Zimmerman is not guilty, but that does not make him innocent.

By: Libertine on 7/15/13 at 7:14

The jury ruled that Zimmerman was justified in the use of deadly force to end the attack from Martin.

It's time accept the facts and move on, just as President Obama said.

Martin was the aggressor and living out his MMA fantasies by attacking and beating Zimmerman cost Martin his life.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:15

That is your best little flea. You must be a defeated yogi spawn.

By: yogiman on 7/15/13 at 7:18

gdiafante,

I believe if you'll read a little history you will see where the first thing dictators did to gain possession of the common citizens was to take their guns.

If you want to live under the rule of a dictator, give him your gun.

I believe you should recite the oath you took when you went in the Marines where you swore to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

The government of today is an enemy. Why? Because they allowed a usurper to take control of this nation without question and they've supported him further without question.

Haven't you ever wondered why the Senate questioned John McCain about his natural born citizen status but didn't insist on questioning Barack Obama, when he denied to be questioned?

They found McCain a natural born citizen because both of his parents were American citizens.

I repeat, how can the man now in office be a natural born citizen with a British subject his father? No way, Jose.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:18

Nimrod: Consider remedial English. Pay particular attention to the chapter on the use of commas.

Don't make me correct your incoherent posts. I charge for that, donchaknow.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:20

Libertine-

The jury made their decision, on what they were given, that does not make Zimmerman innocent.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:22

Yesterday, I fired about 200 rounds of .45, 100 rounds of .380, and almost 500 rounds of .22lr. Not a single jam or misfire!

Good times, good times. Glad I stockpiled ammo when the prices were low. Damn Obama caused a panic and ammo still is not on the shelves.

gdiafante,

Comrade, yogi has no sense for history, unless he has edited it first.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:24

Why don't you just do that, flea.

By: yogiman on 7/15/13 at 7:24

It's rather odd the news media could only show Trayvon, as a 12 year old boy instead of a 17 year old young man.

I just read where a 15 year old young man saved a 5 year old girl from a kidnapper. Is he still a boy? Not in my brain that's so different from yours.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:25

Nimrod: Find a legitimate purpose in life. Leave the disgusting and unjustified vilification of George Zimmerman to the pros---Eric Holder and the DOJ.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:26

Nimrod: Good boy, poochie! You used a comma!
You get extra CNN TV tonight.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:26

Comrade yogi, take your morning meds.

By: yogiman on 7/15/13 at 7:27

Obama bought that ammo for a reason, jughead, and it sure as hell isn't to protect our nation.

Wonder how many he's got in his "personal army" yet.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:30

By the reaction from both Comrade yogi and the flea, I do believe that if Zimmerman had been found guilty, that they and their kin would have rioted.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:31

Keep trying with the insult, flea. You might get lucky and say something clever.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:33

I cannot wait until this POS Kenyan is out of the White House. He is a lame duck now, and his "supporters" are jumping ship like mad to save their political careers.

Ironic--the moron who pledged "gun control" caused more guns to go into the general population than any other President.

At least we have that for which to thank Hussein.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:34

What does that have to do with the Zimmerman trial, flea?

By: yogiman on 7/15/13 at 7:34

Careful, dumba$$, you're exposing your ignorance so much everyone is going to understand you "ain't just kidding".

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:35

Nimrod: Keep saying that "justice" was not delivered, and you will actually forget that Zimmerman was tried by a jury of his peers....a jury that the prosecution also picked....and he was found innocent.

Just keep saying it, and keep texting Nancy Pelosi your nude photos.

By: Jughead on 7/15/13 at 7:37

Nimrod: Sorry to thrash you and leave, but I must work today so that your Tenncare meds are funded. Again, please die soon while having group sex with Anderson Cooper.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/15/13 at 7:38

He was not found innocent, flea. He was found not guilty.

This must be to hard of a concept for you to understand.

No where did the jury or the law say he was innocent.

By: gdiafante on 7/15/13 at 7:38

If I am being honest, there are several posters here who are far more dangerous to the country than our obviously flawed government. But the truth is, these two are trolls. Were it not for the anonymous landscape of the internet, they would go on with their insignificant little lives without anyone even noticing.

Let's just treat them for what they are and not give them a greater voice, okay?

By: BenDover on 7/15/13 at 7:40

You're absolutely right about the Media in this case bfra.

I find this hard to believe that he could afford this on his burger wages. LOL

I don't know what it is with the link you give Ben, but I always have a hard time linking up with them.

I try to google it.

By: BigPapa on 7/15/13 at 7:49

If I'm Zimmerman I think I'd change my name and drastically attempt to change my appearance, at least for a while.

The folks after him are very prone to high emotion and violence. He is not a safe man.
