George Zimmerman's Brother: Civil Lawsuit 'Might Not Be Very Flattering' To Trayvon Martin's Family

George Zimmerman's Brother: Civil Lawsuit 'Might Not Be Very Flattering' To Trayvon Martin's Family

“Martin's Juvenal criminal record was not admissible in court (a policy that needs to be changed). It was a PRIVATE gated community, It was raining, dark, and Martin was casing houses. Some of the houses had been broken into recently. Had the Black dispatcher just sent a car when asked for, this wouldn't have happened.
Also, Martin was older and bigger than I was when I went into the Navy. He was no innocent angel-not by a long shot.
When I see the way the press and small numbers of the public jumped on this, it reminds me of that movie "Idiocracy".”

“Um, Martin was at his father's fiance's house in the gated community. Martin had every "right" to be there. Your misinformation and lies are so transparently racist.”

“As a hetero 50 year old Male, I have been around a lot of different people in my years. I have done a lot of different things for a profession. It always amazes me how upset many women get when topics of feminine Hygiene, hair removal, obesity, jokes with sexual content etc. come up. I remember as a young Psych Major (Developmental Psych), I often found myself as the only male in some small classes, or discussions. I had several female friends, both straight and lesbian. Not only did I get mislabeled by several as "Gay" , but I was included in what would usually be female only conversations. IF OTHER MEN ONLY KNEW WHAT YOU WOMEN SAY ABOUT US! For any men reading this, the women may as well post your penis size, but then they wouldn't have fun making their jokes about that and how you did what you did.
I did find one female joke particularly funny however. One woman in her sixties asked me "why can't women judge distance" I said "I don't know" she said (holding her fingers two inches apart) "because their husbands always tell them this is six inches".
Don't get all "huffy and puffy" ladies, if anything you are worse than we are.”

“Well said! I consider myself a feminist and I don't see a problem with this particular ad. In fact, I have to give this company props for the new ad campaign with the cute older couple. It clearly shows what the product is and it's ease of use without scantily clad young women. If I were to be offended by a products ads it would be a company like Fiat.”
