Skittles and Murder


1. What passes for a deadly weapon in Florida.

2. “CSWB.”

3. After Trayvon, the most infamous snack food since the Twinkie.

4. The incredible, horrible irony of the Skittles slogan. (As in: coalition.)

Mail a package today.

    This case cries out for justice. It is just so tragic, so wrong that Trayvon is dead. It is so clear that George Zimmerman the Neighborhood Watch lunatic was the aggressor with a gun (which he should not have had per the Neighborhood Watch Guidelines) and Zimmerman was paranoid and just a bigot who is getting away with being judge jury and executioner. I am just sick at heart that he is free, it is just so unfair and he must be charged. At the very least that NRA “Stand Your Ground” law must be overturned!

    Too late to arrest Zimmerman.  Arrest the cops who messed up the crime scene.
