I have a case study due on Friday in my international politics class. I’ve been looking at recent events that include Syria, and just by pure luck Saudi Arabia says they’re going to refuse the seat they won at the … Continue reading
I can assure, that George Zimmerman will not live a happy life. Such a highly publicized trial has led millions of people to form their own opinions about what happened.
Zimmerman shot a young man. That’s what happened.
And he deserves punishment.
So let’s look at twitter’s shining reaction to the not guilty verdict. And may George Zimmerman be shunned into a life of solitude and depression and possibly worse mental health than any one man can achieve while in jail.
To prove he’s not a racist, George Zimmerman will now go out and shoot white people.

This is a shameful decision by the jury. Had Zimmerman not considered Trayvon a suspect, and followed him, Trayvon would be alive today.

What happened to Trayvon was horrific, and justice was NOT done, but we need to channel our anger toward making actual social changes.

I’d like to remind everyone that the courts have their procedures for a multitude of reasons. And quite honestly, the only people who have valid opinions are the people who sat in that courtroom since day one. They know the words and evidence used. They know what plagued the system. Unfortunately the state didn’t balance the equation. It happens more than we see.
A young man died because of an idiot. Make Zimmerman’s life miserable. Shun him. Give him dirty looks. Make him feel unwanted and disgusting.
It may not be in the eyes of the state, but Zimmerman’s punishment is coming.
Hello and welcome to the rest of your miserable fucking life.
