    Anyone got anything to say about the Fast and Furious cover up? What about the guns being allowed to go free to the Mexican cartels, so it could be used as an excuse for gun control? Why are so many documents being hidden under the guise of Presidential priviledge? Where is the justice for the dead border patrol agent? Just askin.

    The shooter was in the wrong for pursuing Trayvon, after the 911 operator advised him not too. I do not believe their is anyone in the right involved. The media insanely, and wrongfully cried racism. Trayvon obviously assaulted him, but there should not have been a confrontation in the first place. Trayvon in contrast to the two year old picture the media kept showing was over six foot tall, and had many instances of juvenille delinquency. Selling and possesing Marijuana at school being one. I am not defending either. There should have been more common sense involvedand less testesorone.
