    From nbcnews.com:
    Anyone else see anything wrong with this? They're holding a Vigil for someone who was legally proven to be the aggressor. Whatever your opinions on Zimmerman's innocence, he was proven innocent in a court of law.

    On a second note, what do they think that abolishing the "Stand Your Ground" law will accomplish? It will make intended assault victims actually be the victim, whether or not the aggressor is successful. If the victim fights them off, and has to use deadly force to stop it, then they become liable.

    I just don't see the sense in it all.

    I wonder if they'd be holding vigils for Zimmerman if Martin had been successful.

    It is nothing less than defiance of the courts, the outcome of the case, and reality. They don't care Martin was the aggressor, they don't care Zimmerman was found not guilty (though they wish he had not been), they don't care that the "Stand Your Ground" law protects people who use self-defense against those who would do them harm.

    They want things the way they want them, and that is not how things are now. So they continue to harangue Zimmerman and the courts while holding up a two-bit thug punk as a hero in order to get their way.

    That's about as lopsided a news summary as could possibly be written.

    I'm sure the writer will be at the vigil crying his eyes out.:rolleyes:

    What we have all over the country is a series of assaults by blacks against whites. For example, yesterday a black Indianapolis female school bus driver hit a white girl with a broom handle in a school bus shouting match.
