College expels Trayvon Martin shooter

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch member who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, has been expelled from community college. College officials say Zimmerman’s presence on campus would endanger students — and him. Zimmerman has been in hiding since the case hit the media.

    Cowards.

  2. Can a public institution of higher learning expel an enrolled student at will? What is the actual basis for his expulsion; i.e., what school rule has he violated?

    I am sympathetic to the concerns regarding safety and so on, but I would think there are ways to achieve that objective without going to the extreme of expulsion. The lynch mobs are ready to deny Zimmerman due process, and the community college is jumping on the bandwagon.

    Shame.

  3. Due process means less and less in this country every day. And Zimmerman may become the first victim of a truly due process-less society, which we are on the verge of becoming.

    I expect him to be abducted and tortured – right here in the USA – and the police and politicians to do nothing about it, except ‘clean up after the fact’, out of fear of race riots across the country… This may become the Archduke Ferdinand of a much larger, much scarier scenario in this country. Be ready. A lot of people are angry and they don’t care what the truth is anymore (which in this case, we apparently don’t even know yet).

    • Thank the Republicans for the loss of due process rights.

      • And you think the Democrats are not complicit in this? Open your eyes, man…

      • Lee’s right, they both are. They just want to take different rights away, that’s all. So they compromise by taking them all away…

    • I expect him to be abducted and tortured – right here in the USA

      I expect anyone who tries to wind up either eating a bunch of lead, or having to shoot first.  I would bet that criminal indictments are already in the works against the people behind the “dead or alive” offer.

        Engineer. Look up who’s in charge of the DOJ. You’ll find that career guys there have said the ukase from on high, among other things, includes ignoring voting rights complaints brought by whites.
        Also, Z is a registered democrat. Recall the fuss about mean ol’ republicans when Gabrielle Giffords was shot?
        Crickets.

        • Florida’s AG is a Republican, and probably takes a dim view of murder threats and racial blackmail.

          • Until *his* life and family are threatened. Then he’ll back off and say some things about how ‘awful’ this abduction and torture was, when the police found out about it (ahem) after the fact. After all, it’s ‘just one man’…

          • Her life and family.  Besides, I expect it’s harder to threaten an AG than a loan officer like Zimmerman.

    Mob rule in America. The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Maybe Obama could federalize the National Guard.

    • And take into custody the man that shot a boy who could be his son?

    • He’s the most guilty of all the race-baiters in this case…using an international podium to target this guy and encourage all those that jumped on the racism bandwagon.

      • SuperSub, that is as stupid a comment as you’ve made. He was very careful, spoke movingly, and only a racist or an idiot would say what you said.

        • Mike, the President was being disingenuous. I haven’t looked up the actual statistic, but it’s been said that during that same weekend in Chicago, 40 African Americans were murdered. As long as the crime is Black on Black, the President doesn’t have much to say. But if an opportunity comes up to play the race card and have the New York Times create a new race (White-Hispanic), he’s all over it. You’re right: He spoke very carefully and very movingly–with a divisiveness so subtle that it goes unnoticed, except that he’s creating an undercurrent of fear and hate. He’s doing great damage.

          Actually, now that I think about it, he did not speak carefully at all. He spoke without knowing the facts. Wouldn’t you agree?

        • SuperSub says:

          Oh, I’ll admit that he is a good orator…but I wonder if he ever read the duties on the job posting for President. He’s inserted himself into multiple conflicts and dramas in an effort to be the hero ( Beer Summit, Sandra Fluke, this case) when, as President, his participation would only bring more inflammatory media attention despite the situation having nothing to do with hls office. I have half a mind to request his assistance in mediating a conflict I am having with my neighbor over a dying tree on the property line.

          Not only that, but he has also has displayed a tendency to publicly humiliate or chastise other respected members of society, especially in forums where decorum prevents the targeted individuals from responding ( Supreme Court at the State of the Union address, for example). God, now that I think of it, he’s been behaving a lot like a couple of 9th graders I have who seek out or manufacture drama in school.

          In this case, by publicly announcing a DOJ civil rights investigation he is reaffirming and encouraging the protester’s sense of injustice. Plus, given his frequent issues with black voters not identifying him, I found the “it could have been my son” laughable.

  6. George Zimmerman won’t live long enough to make it to court. The Black Panthers are going to see to that. They’ll probably attack his family too… Burn his family’s home to the ground, etc. Welcome to the new America – it’s post-Civil War Reconstruction all over again!

    • If the Florida AG is doing her job, the New Black Panthers are already being wiretapped and their movements watched.  The “dead or alive” offer is conspiracy to commit murder, a felony.  The only question is when the bust will go down, and that is probably going to be when the NBP’s do something that makes it obvious what kind of lawless thugs they are.

    As Insty says, hope Spike Lee’s been saving his money. Lawyers don’t come cheap and Lee published the WRONG ADDRESS for the jerks who were supposed to be hassling Z and family. Elderly couple has had to leave their home.
    Figure the school ought to do the flypaper thing. Keep Z in class and have extra cops around to arrest every troublemaking fool who shows up. Probably come up with quite a haul.
