At some point there's really nothing to be said. The thing speaks for itself.
[A]ll thinking people are very relieved that George Zimmerman was found not guilty by the intelligent, justice-driven women of the jury, in spite of the façade presented by the prosecution and forced by the threat of racism by everyone from President Obama, to Eric Holder, the New Black Panther gangstas, NAACP, excuse makers of every stripe and even the governor of Florida, but still this innocent man who simply defended his life from a violent, life-threatening, bloodying, head-and-face slamming attack by an enraged black man-child has so wrongly paid an inexplicable price financially and emotionally. […]

But George Zimmerman and his entire family, innocent of any wrongdoing, have lost everything and will be in debt for a long, long time for having to fight the trumped-up charges that he "profiled" and/or set out to murder the poor, helpless, dope-smoking, dope-peddling, gangsta wannabe, Skittles hoodie boy.

That would be Ted Nugent. Nugent is usually obsessive on the subject of violent self-defense; if Nugent found himself being followed down the street an unknown, aggrieved-looking person of a difference race he would be among the first to decide that that unknown person needed to be shot. But the self-defense only works one way. The "enraged black man-child" has no right to self defense. The NRA and Ted Nugent aren't leaping up to demand that people like Trayvon Martin carry guns to protect themselves from people who think that a "Skittles hoodie boy" is suspicious for the act of walking down their street.

The next Trayvon Martin is going to be shot as well. It's not considered a bug in the system. It's the intended result. Following a "black man-child" down the street and shooting them if they don't like that is exactly the sort of "freedom" that Nugent-ized gun laws are intended to protect.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
