I guess we don't need courts, Sam, with you, MSNBC and Facebook.

"let the courts decide" has been the intent of persons raising concern about this case all along. It had already been decided as "case closed" until the outcry began.
The defensive posture in response to the outcry - that supposedly some form of lynch mob is about to railroad GZ into jail - inverts what appear to be the true facts. The story the Sanford police apparently told the Martin family about the incident is really shameful, and it is appalling that parents should have the life of their child disrespected in such a casual manner.

Hipster progressive nerds apparently want to see race riots because they think it will be hilarious to see Teabaggers flip out. People are dying. Lol!

What is with this weird form of tribalism that is pushing people to defend zimmerman at all costs?

So you're saying we should allow the courts to do their thing, and just stand by silently until they are done with their job. Hey there Einstein, exactly when were you expecting Zimmerman to get this day in court? The whole problem is that, despite the police dispatcher telling him to lay off and let the cops handle the situation, even after Zimmerman ignored the dispatcher's advice and chased down the kid and shot him to death, the Sanford Police couldn't be bothered to charge him with anything, not even disturbing the peace. So he was never going to face a court!

I love progressive lynch mobs. Good job stirring up the fanatics, Sam.

What is with the reactionary denial of the history of vigilante violence toward people of color? Is Zimmerman dead? Who had the gun?

i think it's ironic that there are so many people who are upset that Zimmerman's history is posted here. especially since these are probably the same voices that wanted to talk about Trayvon's Twitter account, suspension record, and his height/weight!!
