Several members of New York City's congressional delegation on Monday condemned the acquittal of the man charged with killing Trayvon Martin and urged the Justice Department to intervene.

Reps. Charles Rangel, Hakeem Jeffries, Jerrold Nadler and others bemoaned the Florida jury's failure to convict George Zimmerman in the shooting death of the unarmed Martin, a verdict that has led to widespread protests across the country.

A person cannot be tried twice for the same offense.

The Zimmerman rage has truly struck the entire country. People in hell, if they do want ice water, will be wiser than these dunderheads, who keep on wallowing in the hottest hatred and then, rather than looking for peace, find their enjoyment in blaming everyone else for their rage.

On CNN's Headline New defensy atty O'Mara mentioned that Martin was under the influence of marijuana and that he was spotted near a home that had recently been burglarized. O'Mara went on to say that Martin had recently been "caught with the fruits of a burglary." A reference to the watch, jewelry and burglary tool found in Martin's backpack by school authorities several months before.

With that comment, O'Mara is serving notice to those who will pursue Zimmerman in civil court that the barriers to evidence in the criminal case of Martin's recent troubled history before his death will not pertain in civil court.

================================================================================

Trayvon's shady record will certainly come up on a civil rights case.

SOURCE http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2120504/Trayvon-Martin-case-He-suspended-times-caught-burglary-tool.html

Suspended from school three times:

<><> •He was on suspension when he was shot in February, after officials caught him with a 'marijuana pipe' and a baggie with drug residue

<><> •Trayvon was kicked out of school in October for graffiti after he was allegedly caught with a 'burglary tool' and a bag full of women's jewelry

<><> •Officials also suspended him once for skipping school and tardiness

The buzz is his brother tweeted that Trayvon attacked the schoolbus driver.

=========================================================

FReeper Highest Authority wrote: The Ariona Watermelon Tea and skittles that Trayvon bought at the convenience store right before he encountered Zimmerman is two parts of a Southern ghetto high called “DANK” or “LEAN”....and Purple Drank.

All he needed to complete the mix was Robitussin ---a common cough syrup, which was probably in his hip pocket.

So when his daddy would not give "the child" the 20 bucks for a coupla joints---Trayvon decided to get high w/ this formula.

Amazing how "the child" knew this.

Street-wise Trayvon has been know to talk about "purple drank" both on social media and in school.

He was suspended not only for assaulting his schoolbus driver but also for his drug use.

Side effects of the usage of "lean" includes aggressive behavior.....helps to understand why this rabid "child" attacked his bus driver and WAITED FOUR FULL MINUTES TO attack George Zimmerman.

If there is federal action against Zimmerman, I will have no doubts whatsoever that we live in a police state.

“It is clear that Trayvon Martin would be alive today if George Zimmerman were not deeply prejudiced and did not perceive a young black kid walking through the neighborhood as a threat,” said Nadler”

Right, whatever you say tubby.

The maggots in New Yawk need to work on cleaning up their own backyard. There are more grownups living in Stanford, Florida than there are in the entire state of New Yawk. I’m sure they can handle this themselves. The New Yawkers need to stick to hunting for a same sex “pardner” to “marry”. Despite what the New Yawkers think, America is NOT Nazi Germany. We don’t do things the way they want to.

I’d recommend that a Trayvon Martin wannabe, 6’2” 160 pounds, use the head of each of these New York ‘legislators’ as a basketball, dribble them up and down the sidewalk for just a moment or two.

Then two questions: “How you like them apples?” and “How much did race play into what you were thinking and feeling just now?”

Charles Manson didn’t have a gun either you stupid poophead.

Does this idiot really believe that someone cannot do bodily harm to another without a gun?

More people are killed with hammers than guns.

These New York genius’s are worse than useless, but they are playing their dark skinned constituents like a fiddle.

Florida needs to demand Federal investigations into NYC/Bloomberg’s 16oz soft drink oppression.

This is a MAJOR Civil Rights Violation!

NY citizens live in fear of Bloomberg and are unable to handle their own affairs!

DOJ must investigate NOW.

BTW, a young man was killed, so this is far more serious than “16 oz soft drinks”. However, Florida has handled the incident in a way that was heavily biased TOWARD T. Martin. IOW, Florida bent over backwards NOT to be racists.

Understood, NY?

Now go away and deal with your own problems.

I’ve been waiting for our “illustrious” Mayer Bloombug to bring charges against Zimmerman here in NY.
It’d be in keeping with his personality and behavior so far.
And obviously there’s no problems here in NY needing attention if these dolts can occupy the time of the people of NY with this stuff instead of doing the peoples business.

I read on another site, the night that Martin attacked Zimmerman, it was 3:00AM and that Martin had a backpack full
of burglary tools but this evidence could not be admitted to the trial. Do you know, if this is true?

One more reason for conservative states to seceed from the communist/facist/nazi/progressive states. (Like we needed another reason...)

Or, perhaps better, just boot them out. They are the ones that ignore and distort the Constitution. (And NY didn’t really want in anyway, back in the day. They thought they would be better off on their own...)

I guess they polled these Democrats in the local insane asylum. Sure sounds like it.

But then again, the top of the Democrat Party is a perfect example of “collective insanity”.

Rangel - now he’s one truely honest politician. Nadler - check out his business friends.

Nydia - another low-education politico.

Well, that’ s the ROTTEN APPLE for you.

Charlie Rangel:

What a pillar of the community to tell ANY other jurisdiction what to do!!!

Has he ever paid the taxes on his rentals out of the country?

Didn’t he park one of his cars for YEARS—not using it—in a special congressional parking place & not pay for that either?

What a shining example for the black community to follow!!!

Along with Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton.

“It is clear that Trayvon Martin would be alive today if.....””

Trayvon would P{OSSIBLY be alive today IF he hadn’t continued his bad behavior at school & received a 2 week suspension from school. His Mama had to send him to Daddy because she couldn’t watch him closely enough.

Let’s look at the WHOLE chain of events.........Not just the trip to ‘only get Skittles & Iced Tea”..........

“There are more grownups living in Stanford, Florida than there are in the entire state of New Yawk.”

You know nothing of the STATE of New York. If you did you would know that most of it is “red” counties that are full of very conservative people.

We are just out numbered and out voted by the mass of population down in NY City.

Oh, and we don’t talk like that outside that pit NYC. We pronounce our “r”s here. As a matter of fact we sound downright mid-western.

I believe that did happen——several months earlier.

Trayvon’s shady bgrnd could not be brought up at Zim’s trial...but it can be presented at a civil rights action..... should it go forward.

There is no evidence to date of Zimmerman having racist views.
