This is a deliberate attempt to stir up racial tensions, and as a bonus go after the second amendment.
They will stretch any situation to try to make it a dividing one. This follows Rush Limbaugh’s comments recently being made out to be a war on women.
Someone sent an email asking me to sign a petition to arrest Mr. Zimmerman, I told them to let the police do their jobs since I didn’t know what happened.
If the roles were reversed would Obama get involved in it? After all, if he had a son he could very well be white after all Obama is half white.
But the shooter wasn’t white, he was Hispanic!

WASHINGTON/SANFORD, Florida (Reuters) - President Barack Obama weighed into the controversial killing of a black teenager in Florida in very personal terms on Friday, comparing the boy to a son he doesn't have and calling for American "soul searching" over how the incident occurred.
Seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, dressed in a "hoodie" sweatshirt, was shot dead a month ago in Sanford, Florida by a 28-year-old white Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer who said he was acting in self-defense.
"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," Obama said in his first comments about the shooting, acknowledging the racial element in the case.
"Obviously, this is a tragedy," Obama told reporters. "I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids."
The case has rippled across the nation and prompted rallies protesting the failure of the police to arrest the shooter, George Zimmerman, and, more broadly, a pattern of racial discrimination black leaders cite in Sanford and elsewhere in the country.
