Why did the Obama administration insert itself into the Trayvon Martin protests?
A little known group, the Depatment of Justices Community Relations Service, also known as “The Peacemakers,” was formed under the 1964 Civil Rights Act and empowered to act to mitigate local tensions between ethnic groups. Instead of mitiogating the racial tension as a result of the the killing of Trayvon Martin this groups attended meetings and planning sessions of protest leaders and offered advice and assistance to the protestors. Why did the Obama admionistration insert itself into the Trayvon Martin protests?
Answer: I have stayed away from some of the questions involving this issue. Kind of biding my time and watching. I think it was Florida's business, the county this happened in. I don't think a president should have gotten into it and the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, yikes. Do we have to make everything that happens to an "innocent" black person a racial crusade and get the entire country wound up about it? So, are we going to start the white brigade and whenever a black person now commits some crime against a white person, shall we now start a huge racial war? Please.
I do kind of think that this guy went way overboard and overreacted. He probably should be in jail, but did it take a lynch mob to make this happen and all sorts of commentary and whatnot? Did it take the blacks vs. the whites thing to be brought fourth on all the media shows? Do we have to drag this through discussion time and time again? Then the "wronged" family all over the airwaves making accusations and whatnot? That does not bring that poor boy back to life.
I find myself wondering if people have actually profited in some way over this now?
I feel for this family. I wouldn't care if the child killed was white, black or other. I care that someone shot an innocent kid. I care that justice is done. But, I leave it at that and I am not allowing myself to get on the defensive as a republican against democrat or a white against black or a gun owner (I am not one) against a non-gun owner.
This country has gone way too far lately and we have bigger fish to fry, and certainly our president surely does.
With that, I am done making my commentary about this and I am so sorry this boy was killed.

Trayvon Martin Case News - 911 Call, 'Stand Your Ground' Law ...
Big News on Trayvon Martin. Includes blogs, news, and community conversations about Trayvon Martin.
Should Trayvon Martin pay for the sins of others, should he be racially profiled and mudered for being black?
I say even if there were burglaries in George Zimmermans neighborhood, it does not give him the right to shoot and kill an unarmed 17 year old kid. One fact remains, Trayvon Martin will not get one day older than 17, while George Zimmerman will probably live a long life.
Answer: No it was unfair and unfortunate what happened to him. From the 911 tape that i heard on tv that A-hole disobeyed a direct order to not pursue, he did so and shot the kid.Clear case of racial profiling, so what if there were robbery's in that neighborhood why did he naturally assume because he was a black youth that it was him?

Do you forget that Trayvon Martin had a right to defend himself against a fat sweaty male who followed him?
Maybe a normal kid like Trayvon Martin did not like this male attention. This is free country and he has a right to run away from a fat sweaty male who is running him down in a car and then apparently on foot.
What was Trayvon Martin supposed to think and do? Obviously defend himself in the tradition of other Americans.
Answer: Taking a look at the facts, along with some probable assumptions, I say yes. If some guy, not a police officer or even security guard, but just some guy, comes creeping up on me in the dark, I'm gonna beat the piss out of him.
*once Zimmerman called the cops, his job as a Neighborhood watchman was finished.
*911 operator specifically told Zimmerman to not peruse Trayvon, Zimmerman did anyway.
*Zimmerman has no authority to try to apprehend anyone, he is merely a voluntary neighborhood watchman, not a cop
*Zimmerman had a gun. Why does a neighborhood watchman have a gun? The tools of his 'trade' are limited to a flashlight and a phone. He's a cop caller, not a cop.

If any, what role has segregation or slavery played in the Trayvon Martin protests?
Only the prosecutor knows all of the evidence in the Trayvon Martin case. I know that some black americans are from families that were enslaved or segregated. In the Trayvon Martin case, the public does not know about all of the evidence. In the news, I see protesters demanding that Zimmerman be arrested, but they do not know all of the evidence. Has slavery or segregation affected some protesters views about the Trayvon Martin case?
Answer: Slavery? Segregation? Neither one carry a single factor in the Trayvon Martin "marches for justice". In fact, justice itself is NOT WHY mass mobs of BLACKS show off to the media. What is the REAL reason for the "protest marches", then???
BLACKS OPPOSE THE STAND YOUR GROUND LAW. Why is simple: It's become more dangerous for criminal on innocent people crimes to happen---now the robber, mugger, convenience store thief, car-jacker, rapist and yes....illegal drug dealers and "gangsta thug" members all now have to wonder if their intended victim is either UNARMED.....or packing "heat".
States supporting Stand Your Ground laws already see sharp declines in violent gun related crimes--meaning the BIG CA$H MONEY of illegal drug "commerce" is drying up....and that CAN'T be tolerated by illegal drug distributors, dealers, "soulja gangsta thugs"---and the neighborhoods and AME churces that come to rely on discreetly donations from illegal drug selling "gangsta thug" street gangs.
Trayvon Martin, simply put, is merely being used up---for a variety of means....by a variety of people looking to gain fame and make a buck off him. If they can't push the courts to ignore Stand Your Ground and find Zimmerman guilty anyway, then profiting off Trayvon Martin is "justice" enough.

Why is the left making the Trayvon Martin killing a race and political issue?
Once again the left has created a mess with the Trayvon martin killing and had turned it into a race issue, which it clearly isnt, and a political issue by assuming the right is for Zimmerman and against Martin. You have Obama and his buddies Farrakhan, Sharpton and Jackson race baiting and now there are t-shirts being sold that has Zimmermans picture on it which calls him a "Pussy Ass Cracker" Why is the left making the Trayvon Martin killing a race and political issue?
Answer: A Hispanic kills a black no news, a white killing a black then you have a victim.
Zimmerman a hispanic came out of the conflict with a broken nose and a gash on the back of his head, it doesn't sound like cold blooded murder if those reports are true.
But Jackson, Sharpton and other Democrats have to keep the black community victims in order to control them.
3 black suspects kill a man at MSU and not one peep from the left media. Then they wounder why a community watch is suspicious of a black man in Florida with a hoodie. A Neighborhood that has been burglarized recently by black suspects.
How do you feel about all the national attention on Trayvon Martin murder case?
Heres the link if you havent been paying attention to the news.
The controversy is over the fact that the Sanford police have not yet arrested the shooter George Zimmerman and its been over a month. George says it was self defense.
Answer: You have abbreviated the "controversy" and might want to review your information. The CONTROVERSY is multi-faceted and involves far more than the Sanford police department's dereliction of duty or perhaps even criminal (or racist) conspiracy regarding the MURDER of an unarmed young black teen who lived in the community with his dad and his stepmom---he had every right to be able to walk to and from a convenience store to get himself an iced tea and a bag of Skittles without ending up DEAD because a racist self-appointed vigilante (and wanna-be pretend cop) chased and then killed this young boy without any provocation. George Zimmerman has a history of violence and neurotic behaviors that should have prevented him from even having a gun. Once he'd used deadly force against a young lad he'd CHASED with no probable cause whatsoever even after the police dispatcher told Zimmerman to remain in his car---he MURDERED Trayvon Martin!---the police who arrived on the scene should have (a) tested Zimmerman for alcohol (his speech was slurred on the nonemergency 911 tapes) or for drugs; and (b) had him surrender his weapon pending investigation. Neither of these two normal procedures (used if a police officer is involved in a shooting so why not for a CIVILIAN whacko?) were done by police at the scene of this homicide---so why? Zimmerman should have at the very least been taken in for questioning and the blood test! He was not even an AUTHORIZED SECURITY GUARD, not having gone through the required training, so why is he still free with the very gun he used to murder a teen with no history at all of violence or bad behavior??? Florida's really bad right-wing-Republican-passed "Stand Your Ground" crappola of a "law" is also part of the controversy because the legislation was WRITTEN BY THE NRA and very poorly written now that Trayvon's death has brought its existence into the limelight. Zimmerman was not "standing his ground"---he was CHASING an unarmed decent young black teen for no valid reason---a teen who was going back to his STEPMOTHER'S APARTMENT! This case is NOT going to go away until justice for Trayvon Martin and the Martin family has been done---and that will include the arrest and HATE CRIME federal trial of George Zimmerman, the civil suit filed against the police department of Sanford, and the idiotic right-wing gun-crazed law being overturned.

Why did the liberal news media follow the gospel of Rev. Jesse Jackson in the Trayvon Martin case?
Not only did the liberal news media generate unfounded controversy over a shooting which occurred in self-defense, believing proven racists Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson, they had reported on a "stunning new development" this afternoon that Trayvon Martin was, indeed, a criminal, finding trace amounts of marijuana in his backpack. Has the news media sunk that low to generate a firestorm without any solid facts or evidence and paint Trayvon the criminal as the innocent victim instead of the disgusting thug he truly was?
Answer: I sincerely hope that one day your son or grandson
will be shot with absolutely NO weapon on him...by
a shooter who claims it was self defense.Most
importantly.....I hope the shooter walks................
Why is Zimmerman considered guilty in Trayvon Martin case?

Why are some crying that telling the truth about Trayvon Martin is character assassination?
Did anyone force Trayvon Martin to do drugs, show off his gold teeth and gang tats on twitter, take a swing at a bus driver or steal womens jewelry?
Answer: Do you want to know the truth? I mean really? (I suspect you, specifically, already know)
The truth is that they aren't so upset about Trayvon being shot. What they are all mad about is that they can no longer act like fvcking animals and then play the Race Card without getting shot.
This is like a Revelation to Blacks. All of a sudden they look up and see that there are consequences to chimping out.
I hope this happens more and more, then maybe Blacks will stop targeting whites for crime.

In the Trayvon Martin case, what does skittles and arizona have to do with it?
I feel awful when i hear the Trayvon Martin case ): but whenever i try to learn more, theres always something about skittles and arizona, and what does it mean?
Answer: I see your point. The hoodie was a big deal, why not the arizon & skittles? The main thing is Zimmerman was not arrested. A corpse appears, someone is arrested and a determination is made whether or not he is a killer or whether there was a reason for it. This law of theirs does not mean when anyone says they are innocent they are in fact innocent. The same law that made police departments made them to arrest people who may have committed a crime.
This ia all common sense and so, on this basis I am going to declare that Zimmerman may have slaughtered Martin like a animal and the police are in on it. This could serve the cause of racism.
We have a Black President, the FBI likes to take center stage now and then, maybe there will yet be some heat on them. Real heat, which enforces the law. Not smoke and mirrors, like their coverup.

Would the death of Trayvon Martin be considered a social problem?
I have to do a sociology project on a social problem. I automatically thought of the murder of Trayvon Martin. So would this be considered a social problem?
Answer: For what I understand, George Zimmerman did nothing wrong under Florida law
What I do not understand, which could be a social problem
1. Why do you carry a guy on a neighbor watch?
2. Why do you go up to someone you called the cops to report?
3. Why did Trayvon Martin do, beside being black and wearing a hoodie
4. Why do you follow someone
I do not think George Zimmerman will be charge
I do think Trayvon Martin family should go and change florida law and make it illegal to carry a gun on a neighborhood watch
The truth is, zimmerman did not have a gun, trayvon would not be dead
I do not understand why anyone would carry gun on a neighborhood watch
