The AP says that budding artist George Zimmerman, who recently painted a picture of the Florida state attorney who prosecuted the murder case against him, directly ripped off their photo of her. Oops.

Like gangster Al Capone going to Alcatraz for tax evasion and O.J. Simpson serving time for robbing some sports memorabilia dealers, some interpret this series of unfortunate events as part of some cosmic comeuppance for a wannabe cop.

I think that it will be seen as a questionable judgment on the part of the judicial system down there, but I don’t know if it will have staying power. These cases come along and they blaze across the midnight sky and then after a period of time, they’re forgotten.

"Justice for Trayvon" rallies sweep country

  • 100+ the number of ”Justice for Trayvon” rallies that took place nationwide on Saturday. Among the largest ones were the New York protest, which Trayvon Martin’s mother (and a few major celebrities) attended, and the Miami one, which his father did. ”This could be any one of our children,” Tracy Martin said. “Our mission now is to make sure that this doesn’t happen to your child.” source

I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again. As a matter of fact, wherever I find that law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world. As I said earlier, you can’t just talk about it, you have to be about it.

So-called Stand Your Ground laws have garnered a lot of attention since the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the slaying of Sanford, FL teen Trayvon Martin, though as we mentioned earlier, the Zimmerman defense team never actually argued that provision of Florida law in their case. Subsequent comments by one of the six-person jury to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, however, suggest they may have included the controversial law in their deliberations in spite of that fact.

The fundamental danger of an acquittal is not more riots, it is more George Zimmermans.
