  •  Something I have found ironic (0+ / 0-)

    is that if George Zimmerman, being Latino, was picked up and dropped somewhere along the US/Mexico border in Arizona (without his papers), near a known crossing for undocumented individuals, he would be subject to a lot of the same suspicion and assumption of "being up to something" that he subjected Trayvon Martin to.  If he was so unfortunate as to run into some of the vigilante groups that patrol the borders, he could easily suffer the same fate as Trayvon.

    That's not the ironic part.  The irony to me is that there are probably a lot of knee jerk conservatives who are defending George Zimmerman to the death right now, who would have no problem dragging him off to jail, or worse if he couldn't produce his proof of citizenship on demand in Arizona.
