    Except the only one of the two with a history of physical violence is Zimmerman. All the "gangta" pictures, texts, and MMA lessons don't change that fact.

    Except that Martin wasn't doing any of those things.

    No one has yet to substantiate that Martin was "looking around" any houses. I've addressed the hoodie wearing. It was raining.

    Not really except to crackers like you in Hayseedville.

    Funny thing is I am a 54 year old white man. I own a 2013 Dodge Dart in Citrus Peel (Lime green) and it is amazing how many different young people want to talk about it, white, black, and hispanic.
    Oh man... If you're going to treat yourself with a new car from Mopar, get a Challenger...

    I most certainly can't get 40 mpg with a Charger, and further, um, I don't make Deputy Chief's pay!!

    I am quite happy with the Dart. It rides nice and is very quick.

    My previous Neon was lime green and I used that in one instance to get out of a ticket by accusing the officer of profiling me because of the color of my car since he pulled me out of a pack of cars and motorcycles all going the same speed!

    I'll bet the cop let you off because he was expecting a cute gal driving a car like that and was so disturbed by what he found that he could not find his pen to write a ticket.

    I'm only kidding you, Don. A friend just bought a new Dodge Dart for his daughter, it is a nice car.

    I happen to like lime green and frankly was one of a minority that was unhappy when my career FD went from lime green to black over red.

    So nah ner nah ner!!

    I may stop a few times for fuel, but I'll still be ahead of you...

    Sounds like a corrolary to the stopped clock that's still right twice a day.

    Contrary to your previous remark - it gets great gas mileage, it just doesn't go anywhere (why, you haven't had to put gas in it in ages!).

    Either that, or the wrecker that's hauling it gets really bad mileage.

    Given Zimmerman's actions SINCE his acquittal, it's obvious his violent behavior is NOT an isolated incident.

    It's probably only a matter of time before he implodes or picks a fight with someone who will kick his ***.

    Completely relevant when it clearly points to his violent tendencies and a complete inability to lay low and not be a total dumb a z z.
