    Zimmerman posts ad on gunbroker.com

    Only lasted about a day before the auction was removed. He actually put the pistol that he used to defend himself against T. Martin up on gunbroker.com. It's no longer there, of course.

    Yawn, people just need to get over it. I am very disappointing for them pulling the auction though. Political correctness at it's finest.

    "The gun that George Zimmerman used to kill unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin is up for auction again after one company delisted the weapon from its site."

    "United Gun Group decided to post the gun after being contacted by Zimmerman. The company said in a statement that "as long as Mr. Zimmerman (or any other UGG member) is obeying the letter of the law, his personal firearm sale will be permitted on our network." "

    Auction for gun that killed Trayvon Martin possibly hijacked.

    MIAMI (AP) - "Bidding in an online auction for the pistol former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin appeared to have been hijacked by fake accounts posting astronomically high bids.

    At one point early Friday, the bidding surpassed $65 million with the leading bidder using the screen name "Racist McShootFace." The site later showed that account had been deleted."

    Hmmm, too bad the auction site did not required credit card to sign up, bidding on an auction is legally binding. It would be funny for the dumbscat to find himself in a financial hole he could never get free of without filing bankruptcy.

    While I don't condone such actions I must say I found Grape's posting's information funny. "Racist McShootFace". LOL

    I would give gunbroker the benefit ... closing the auction due to goofy bids v. objection to the sale itself; I think that there is ample evidence to support this viewpoint too.

    Reading today's editorial page of my local newspaper, I ran across this syndicated column. Easily one of the most vile, race-baiting garbage pieces of propaganda I have seen in a long, long time.

    I can't even bring myself to add a comment.

    Pulitzer Prize winner, indeed, this article probably is or will be published in dozens of newspapers around the country.

    quote: In an interview with the Daily Beast, Zimmerman said Trayvon Martin's mother and father were bad parents who should "have an internal dialogue to see what they should have done better" in raising their 17-year-old son, whom Zimmerman shot dead during a struggle in Sanford, Fla. "They didn't raise their son right. He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him," he said. "Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on [their] son's death. She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn't have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash." unquote.

    wow, kinda like the lynching frenzy the citizens of NewNan (bloody article author can't even spell the name of the town right in his article!!) stir the masses up w/rhetoric, truthful or fanciful, and watch them react!!!

    and we have been exhibiting this type of behaviour for years...

    i find it interesting the author didn't mention those American service members involved in the Vietnam conflict taking the ears off of their dead or the Native Americans scalping settlers, or those in the Rain forest shrinking the heads of their adversary(ies).

    guess humans have a macabre gene loose in our DNA ?
