Back in February George Zimmerman was a full bodied bully. Bullies shouldn’t have guns and this story is the main reason why. People get to be bullies by harassing other people, who are smaller, younger, darker, prettier, lighter, shorter, taller, slower, fatter, and dumber than they are. They are constantly looking for someone to “measure up against” in order to make that person feel weaker. It has been proven that most folk who are doing the bulling actually have the main issues and are more “tangled” than the person who supposedly has the shortcomings.
This case isn’t any different, we have a bully (full grown man who has already shown to have problems with the law and his disrespect for authority is duly noted) and we have a teenager on the telephone talking to a friend. No doubt when this bully was a teenager he didn’t have a cell phone and this could have been another point of contention for him.
He has since done something that should be considered clear evidence (as if more was needed) that there is some planning going on. Zimmerman is disappearing before our very eyes. Original reports claim that this adult man, 269 pounds armed with a handgun(that we have yet to find out if he had a permit for since he has had law trouble, was he even suppose to have a weapon?) Speaking of the weapon, according to the facts published about just how many residents actually carry guns in Florida, it may have been only a matter of time before something like this happened anyway-They have more guns than the “overseers”
The night Trayvon Martin was shot to death; George Zimmerman was one of 1,903 residents in his Sanford ZIP code with permits to carry concealed handguns, state records show.
That would be astronomically high in some states, but central Sanford doesn’t rank in Central Florida’s top 10 ZIP codes with the most concealed-weapons-permit holders. In that Sanford ZIP code, the figure translated to roughly 6 percent of adults 21 and older.
Taking guns to work, church and play in Florida has become so widespread in the past 25 years that the state likely leads the U.S. in the number of residents legally carrying guns. With nearly 920,000 active concealed-weapons permits, the Sunshine State is home to almost as many gun dealers as its 2,300 citrus farms, according to state and federal records.
Clearly, many Floridians have embraced their Second Amendment rights. But the state has come under fire by gun-control groups, which blame Trayvon’s death on Florida’s stand-your-ground law and lenient firearms rules.
Zimmerman has conveniently now starved himself and stays shaven in order to make his self look younger and smaller. His clothing is not hanging off of him, and he looks like a much better match for someone of Trayvons stature.
But please believe me it will not work, I would not personally be surprised if he doesn’t make it to court. If he decided that he has lost enough weight to be able to mix in with the Mexicans (who they originally said he was) now and fade into the sunset. He will jump this minuscule bale and use the resources that he has been using so far, going unseen since February. Notice these subtle differences.
So far it’s the top of the 9th with 1 out..Let’s see how this series plays out-

USA policies are no different today, for African-Americans, than what they were 200 years ago or when the Ronald Reagan’s administration schemed to flood the black community with crack cocaine in order to fund his illegal war in Nicaragua. That one action completely destroyed millions of Black lives and presently still having a negative impact on African-Americans.
Reagan’s administration had other strategies in place… Continue reading

There is an erroneous perception that black men are more criminal than non-blacks. Why is that? Statistics are generally produced seemingly validating a consensus that African Americans are more prone to violence and criminal activities, however, stats can be used to paint any picture we so desire surreptitiously sweeping white on white crime… Continue reading
