Answer. Because he is a demonic racist who had wanted to kill a young, innocent black child as far back as he could remember.

Off the mat enough. According to the 1921 Treaty of Rouen, governing professional wrestling, the cover has to be by torso or arm.

"If George Zimmerman was not engaged in an unlawful activity and was attacked in any
place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his
ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he reasonably believed that it was
necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another or to prevent
the commission of a forcible felony"

Please tell me in what way this paragraph related to a theory of the crime advanced by the prosecution or a theory of defense as advanced by Zimmerman's counsel.

I am just pointing out the two parts "suited" has problem with are parts I don't have problem with, don't think the CNN article said much about how the conclusion was reached

I don't know about that. I've seen some images of a guy just pinning with a foot:

It definitely did spark a heated nation wide discussion on race regardless whether Zimmerman was a racist.

It did, and I would think the language CNN used would be something you'd see from a news organization before the trial/investigation had concluded. They continue to report it as if we're just let to figure this stuff out for ourselves because there's no indication either way as to whether or not race was an issue, or if the Stand Your Ground law allowed Zimmerman to get away with murder.

If they want to mention race/Stand Your Ground, I think any news organization owes its readers a comprehensive summary of what we know at this point.

International maritime law?

And this juxtaposition is just beautiful:

So we've gone from Martin to Martin. The five decades from the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Dream" to Trayvon Martin's death have been the most tumultuous in the country's racial history since the Civil War and Reconstruction.

I can see the memes based on "From Martin to Martin" now.

I was getting on the bus this morning and this old black lady was all like "I wanna sit up front," and I'm like "forget that, back of the bus with you!" And I kicked her in the face and all my fellow white bus passengers laughed with me.

Yes he does. His white guilt finally got the better of him and he gave away all his worldly possessions to support this new found worthy cause, effect or whatever it is.
