Great commentary – and VERY informed! Omari really has followed the case closely. I saw a Daily Show commentary on Upworthy that was in the same spirit as this podcast which says it quite well (although I can’t seem to link it here).

HI GUYS !!!! LOVE THESE PODCASTS !!!!
AND I WAS ONLY AWARE OF THIS CASE AND DETAILS BECAUSE OF THIS PODCAST !! ALTHOUGH I HAVE SEEN POSTS ABOUT ZIMMERMAN DIDNT KNOW WHAT IT ENTAILED
AFTER LISTENING IT DOES FEEL THAT AN INJUSTICE HAS BEEN DONE AND GIVES THE WRONG MESSAGE TO EVERYBODY ELSE REGARDING RIGHT AND WRONG AND IN TERMS OF ACTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES.
YOU TOUCHED ON IN THE PODCAST ABOUT HOW ZIMMERMAN FELT HIS LIFE WAS IN DANGER ETC, BECAUSE MARTIN WAS SUSPICIOUS WELL IF HE FELT THAT WAY WHY WOULD YOU FOLLOW HIM HOME !!!!
THIS COULD ALSO BE SEEN AS A CASE OF VIGILANTE ( HE BELIEVE HE WAS DOING THE RIGHT THING ETC ) BUT ITS STILL KILLING A PERSON !! AND ALSO TAKING THE LAW INTO YOUR OWN HANDS – HE WENT OUT LOOKING FOR THIS IT DIDNT COME TO HIM.
ALSO AGREE WITH Luvia IF HE HAD A GUN HOW DID IT TURN INTO A HAND TO HAND FIGHT, SO HE WANTED TO GET IN SOME GOOD HITS BEFOREHAND ????
THIS KIND OF TOUCHES ON THE FACT THAT IF AN INTRUDER IS IN YOUR HOME AND YOU TAKE DEADLY FORCE TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY YOU CAN THEN BE CHARGED WITH MANSLAUGHTER AND COULD DO A JAIL TERM WHEN THEY WEREN’T THE ONES AT FAULT AND THIS PERSON WAS THERE INTENT ON HARMING THEM AND THEIR FAMILY, ALSO IF THE INTRUDER WAS TO BE HURT AND SILL ALIVE HE COULD THEN SUE THE VICTIM EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE TRESPASSING AND UP TO NO GOOD.
( THIS HAPPENS IN AUSTRALIA )
THE WHOLE JUSTICE SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED !!!
DONT TAKE THE CAPS AS A TONE WAS EASIER TO WRITE THIS WAY ❤ YOU GUYS
AND I THINK THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE TALK ABOUT CONTINUUM 🙂 AND HOW ALL THIS RELATES TO THE 2 SIDES OF THE GOVERNMENT WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT
DO YOU THINK ITS RIGHT HOW THE INTERROGATION METHODS THAT USHER HAS MADE HAPPEN AT THE DEPARTMENT OF GAZA AND JULIAN IS RIGHT ?
DOES THE END JUSTIFY THE MEANS ? ? 🙂

Loved this! As a clueless white guy, I’ve been also ranting in a politically incorrect yet comedic way as I try to come to grips with how we can heal the racial divide in this country. If anybody’s interested, you’ll find my rant here:
