George Zimmerman Gets Away With Murder

Abby Zimet

Acquitted. Unbelievable. He killed an unarmed black kid just trying to go home, and he walks. Defense attorneys claim it was all reverse racism and now we have "justice." If you have a very very strong constitution, watch Zimmerman's scummy brother claim on CNN it's time to heal the nation but he wonders why a drug-fuelled gun-running Trayvon Martin was so angry and isn't it too bad some "vigilantes" want to take the law into their own hands. Unfrigginbelievable. From Twitter reactions: "I cannot believe this is the America I live in right now" and "That child did no wrong." From Gawker,  "It is a complicated thing to be young, black, and male in America."

"Only in America can a dead black boy go on trial for his own murder." - Syreeta McFadden.
