Does anyone find it strange how all the liberals support Trayvon/ conservatives for Zimmerman?


I see both sides claiming bias in the media on the other side, or some kind of systematic, race based flaw. However, how come we're split along political lines? Doesn't this show that America as a whole has made up their minds, and are altering the facts to prove their point? What happened to critical thinking on a case by case basis? Is this evidence for dichotomous, two party groupthink?

    You have a point. Statutorily, though, I believe the verdict was right. Ethically? Zimmerman had no business following. There weren't eyewitnesses of a pursuit. That's a big thing that contributed to the reasonable doubt interpretation.

    Right, peeples. Those who are willing to examine the FACTS of the case and keep their emotions from controlling them must see that this was a case of self-defense. No need to drag race into this.

    It is extremely rare to find honest, unbiased reporting in the US on TV the internet or newspapers. This is true tenfold with things like the Zimmerman trial where they can insert racism into the mix, whether it played any part or not.

    Most of the prosecutor's witnesses sounded more like defense witnesses.

    The whole trial was politically motivated the local PD looked at the evidence and didn't press charges because there were none to press.

    Rodney King was stopped at the end of a chase from the scene of a robbery where King beat and robbed a store owner. He beat him badly enough to cripple him for life. I wish people would stop trying to paint him as an innocent poor black man.
