A bank robbers main motivation is to make money.

Plenty of despicable people's main motivation is to make money.

Neither a whore nor a bank robber make money by helping people reenact the killing of your son.


You need to find better whores.

Both sides are shameless... so be shameless.

Mr.BobDobalita: As a gun owner who considers Zimmerman to be innocent based on all the evidence I have seen (police report, photos of head wounds, etc... of course I"M sure more will come out in the trial, but based on what is official to date, I think he will be a free man) these targets are DISGUSTING and INCREDIBLY WRONG.

I don't know if this person broke any laws by trying to make money like this, but if they did, someone needs to throw the book at them. As a gun owner and 2A advocate, I can't STAND to see people act like this and tarnish the reputation of responsible law abiding gun owners.

The people that bought the targets are disgusting as well.


Regardless of the whether Trayvon was a thug or not, he's still a HUMAN BEING.. and while Zimmerman's actions may have been justified at the time, killing Martin in effigy is pretty sick and twisted.

I believe in the right to protect one's self from harm from another, even if that means killing the other person to stop the attack. No one I know WANTS things to come to that and takes steps including situational awareness (keeping your eyes extremely peeled), conceding defeat (runnin away like a sissy), and any other means of avoiding conflict in order to avoid having to use lethal force.


I personally would run away if someone wanted to fight. If they gave chase, there may be problem if I can't run fast enough or if I have my kids with me.


Unfortunately, no, he is not still a human being.

I wasn't under the impression it was coined this year. But we're entering a brave new age of people using it as a direct replacement for a racial slur. That's what I mean by racist code-word.

The man is shrewd in business and should be applauded for this (not sarcasm). The horror of this story are the people that are buying the targets. These are people who should not be allowed to own guns because they are obviously racially motivated.

I really enjoy when an old person is describing black people and they say "brothers" and "hood". Generally it relates to an exciting moment when they got off the highway in the city and saw black people and so they got back on the highway. I enjoy the danger and excitement in their eyes when they tell it, and their strong belief that you're feeling the danger and excitement too when you're actually thinking "pfft, I used to buy drugs at that intersection."

Or maybe it's just me.

The reason why the man cannot use Trayvon Martin's name or likeness on his gun range targets is because hismother took that action. Thanks for proving their point, dummy. Oh, and until you can produce an example of them using it to profit...*finger to my lips* Shhhhhhhh.

"This is the highest level of disgust and the lowest level of civility," said Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara.

so when Zimmerman gets off, where are the riots going to be? I'm not kidding or trolling, I'm serious. When Zimmerman doesn't get life or the chair or more than 3 years in jail, there are going to be riots, and those of african heritage will be up in arms about the death of one of their own at the hands of a "white man"(never mind that Zimmerman is of Hispanic origin), and the lack of justice for "their race" or the lack of accountability for the "white man". So, the riots will be where, exactly? If he gets off scott-free, add an order of magnitude or two to the number of people participating in the riots. Just want to see where the insurance industry will be taking a hit when this is over.

/I will be shocked if cooler heads prevail
//saw a documentary about the Rodney King riots, the other day. The interviews of the people who participated in the wanton looting/destruction/bodily harm was shocking. No remorse. Nothing that bespoke of the harm they did to their own community. It was a fun day out where they thought they could get away with anything they did. People drove to LA in order to take part. Arsenial(sp?) Hall's smiling commentary was especially gruesome. They didn't get their perceived justice(on this one point I agree: those police officers should have gotten the maximum, under the circumstances), so they participated in burning, pillaging and murder. 53 people died during those riots. Rapes and assaults in the hundreds, if not thousands. $2billion in damages What will happen this time?

"My main motivation was to make money off the controversy,"

Sounds like Trayvon Martin's parents...who couldnt wait to get their kids name trademarked

And, no, White Guilt Liberals, the family is making money off their dead kid. You do not hire a Media Consultant right after your kid is shot Link

At least Target Seller Man was being honest...and didn't have to hire Black Racists like Al Sharpton, New Black Panthers, either

People call Trayvon a thug, yet he's never been arrested. George Zimmerman, oth, has been three times and had demonstrated violent behavior. Good Bless America. And by that I mean fark you all.

Citation needed. He was arrested 3 times? If so, how many times was he CONVICTED? One of the arrests was pushing an off duty officer who was assaulting his friend and he was unaware the person was an officer.

The targets or the martin/zimmerman deal? If you're talking about the shooting of Trayvon, please provide evidence this was racially motivated. If you're talking about the target buyers... yes, I agree. Morons.

I was referring specifically to the people who bought the targets. I thought my point was pretty obvious considering my criticism was focused on the buyers of the targets, rather than the seller.

i'm curious about something with the media regarding this case. why has the media in the beginning of this case tried as hard as they could to turn this into a race/hate crime with blacks against whites issue? honestly they did as much racebaiting as they possibly could as quick as they could and only now in the aftermath of the result have they changed the telling of the story. seriously what with the misstelling of the audio call and a major news putting in the story that zimmerman had used the word coon and most of the news storys saying zimmerman was a "white" hispanic putting emphasis on the white part of that to get everyone up in arms..seriously... its pretty retarded on the scope of things on the way they handled the telling of the case. and of course putting emphasis on hate crime and race war whenever whitey tried to enter the fray yet never said anything of the sort on the number of crimes where people were beating up "whitey" and yelling justice for trayvon or where was the outrage/hate crime for the black panthers putting a bounty on zimmerman or the "hate crime" on the one guy tweeting out the address of zimmerman which turned out to be the address of a different zimmerman not related to the case and scaring the crap out of an elderly couple.

just my 2cents of this whole ordeal and what i have seen/heard about this case

/just curious
