I don't think their is any shortage of illegal guns in Detroit
looking at how they kill each other in large numbers.

But yes, probably wouldn't be bad if some of the gangs
had a shoot out in an area where no "bystanders" were.

I reckon you'd end up with a couple left at most.

Maybe someone should "manufacture" a "situation"
where something such as this occurred. Save Police time.

Had Trayvon not been suspended from school he would not have died that night.
This was not about the amount of melanin in one's skin. It was about the amount of gray matter in one's skull.
Very well said Sir!


Plus....bringing just your fists and bad attitude to a Gun fight is just plain not smart!

That first clip you posted was questionable... Morgan did his usual crap and tried to end up looking good but the last exchange was perfect:

What I found interesting out everything said in this Blog is the condition of young angelic Skittles chomping Trayvon's Liver as reported by the Coroner who did the Autopsy.

Along with THC (found in marijuana) in his blood....was other indications of recent drug use to include possibly what is known as "Lean".

The Canned Drink, Skittles and Cough Medicine are the ingredients for "Lean".

Combine the Text messages, photos, and problematic behaviour by Trayvon.....there is strong evidence to suggest he not only used "Lean" but may even have been selling it.

I wonder if the DOJ will go down this path in their intensive investigation into the fatal encounter between Zimmerman and Trayvon.


OK...I know the answer....they are only looking for a way to nail Zimmerman's Hide to the Pack House Door but one would think a fair inquiry would consider all aspects of this tragedy.

Zimmerman's behavior was irresponsible. It's not like he caught Martin committing a crime or saw he was about to commit one. He only suspected Martin and those suspicions were rather vague. Yet he pursued Martin armed with a weapon. I don't think anyone who isn't a police officer with weapons training should be chasing a suspect while armed unless someone's life is in danger. It certainly isn't defensive. It's a recipe for an incident. Zimmerman may not be guilty of specific charges, but I think he was wrong because he should have known better. He made many poor judgements that resulted in someone being killed. I don't think it's any benefit to anyone for him to be in jail, but I disagree with this sentiment that justice prevailed here.

Justice was rendered against a law and not against any tom dick or moe's subjective likes or dislikes.

Bad judgments and poor decision making are the kind of stuff that show up in your employment performance review and not in a court where no law was broken.

As much as I think that American gun culture is an affront to a modern country I do not believe that any charges should have been made - under the laws that prevail as I understand them no offence was committed. Whether these laws regarding firearms and their use are what they should be is a different and much debated matter.

"Yet he pursued Martin armed with a weapon".

It's not as if he was walking about with the gun in his hand!

And the evidence points to Zimmerman losing sight of Tryvon,who then stalks and attacks him.

The gun was only drawn during a sustained attack, and only one shot was fired.

Hardly the behaviour of someone who was deliberately setting out to find a victim to kill.

Perhaps the problem was concealed carry, if it was clear that he was armed then there might have been no fight.

Well you are OK then liing in Scotland, you said "modern" so you won't have
any problem being affected.

Just stay in Scotland and let the rest of the world get CCW.

Here is an inconvenient truth.....which the Media and the NAACP refuse to talk about!

Black America's Real Problem Isn't White Racism


Soup is so typical....and could easily be a member of the NAACP....as he ignores the facts, the Law, the evidence and testimony all the while harping about the outcome of a Trial because he doesn't like the outcome because it does not conform with his own personal views.

We Scots have at least got past the stage of shooting each other in industrial quantities - we have not had a policeman shot in years for example.The USA pays a very high price for its gun culture - about 30,000 shot dead a year - many times higher than any European country, for what? We do not feel the need to arm ourselves to be protected against our fellow citizens - because they are not armed.

Yep. Most are no loss to society being gang banging druggies.
Saves having to lock them up.

Ah yes....that old saw.....surely you can do better than that!

You might want to check your numbers....you are off by about double the real number.....and then ask yourself why Blacks figure so prominently in those numbers.

If you go to the Chicago Police Department's web site and analyze their Murder Statistics for yourself.....you will, assuming you can work a Calculator and figure out which data to use, find that well over 90% of Murders are done by Blacks against Blacks, both Killer and Victim had at least one prior Arrest, and fall between the ages of 14 and 28.

What does that tell you about the Murder problem in the USA?

If you take the top five American Cities for Murder out of our National Stats....we drop to 40th in the World Stats for Murder.

What does that tell you about Murder in the USA?

If you look at the Political Control of those five Cities....you will find they are all Cities that have been controlled by the Democratic Party for mulitple Decades....and most have Blacks in control.

What does that tell you about Murder in the USA?


Now....if you read this article....you might get the impression things are not all that bad in the USA.....notice we do not figure in the Stats mentioned.

1.1 million Brazilians murdered in 30 years | Fox News

If you want throw in your Tuppence....at least know what you are talking about.

"We do not feel the need to arm ourselves to be protected against our fellow citizens - because they are not armed."

So you are correct for the last 100+ or so years.

That's funny, considering the history of Scotland where you were
at each others throats for so long until the English came along and
gave you a common enemy to fight which meant clans joined up
- until it was over then went back to killing each other.

Good for you, bcgallacher. Hang on to that. We've lost that serenity here, though that's how it was back in the day.

If it ever gets rough, however, you may want to reassert the right to arm and defend yourself if you can.
