8. Absolutely...

You really do have to love the pining for the good old days. With all the crazy talk about how Michelle Obama should have addressed her heckler, I thought we had returned to their good old days.

This case is so very sad. I'm blown away by the fact that this man can even open his mouth, say self-defense, and be taken seriously by anyone.

I mean...come on. He follows someone (stalking, let's be honest). He follows a kid with an ice tea and skittles. He's armed with a chambered bullet.

Am I really supposed to believe that a black man (with a chambered fire arm), following a white teen through a neighborhood, while the youth was holding tea, with skittles, and talking on the phone...could have told anyone that it was self-defense and been taken seriously?

It's enough to make you cry.

It's like watching the Twilight Zone. If Zimmerman gets off, it probably will be a return to their good old days. Mississippi has a brand new open firearm carry law. It goes into effect Monday.
