Mike Tyson on George Zimmerman: ‘It’s a disgrace he hasn’t been shot yet’

STFU Tyson, you’re an stupid, ignorant, racist rapist, who the fuck cares what you think. 

Mike Tyson thinks that George Zimmerman deserves violent retribution for the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

In an interview with Yahoo News about his upcoming one-man show in Las Vegas, the former heavyweight champion sounded off on the polarizing case:

“My personal feeling is that, as a young kid that was beat on by a bully, that was pretty much singled out—the guy [Zimmerman] stalked him, didn’t follow instructions from a superior officer, when they said, ‘Stop following the kid.’ That tells you everything right there. But my all-around perspective, I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened. But it’s just so widespread and overt what happened. Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages. It’s a majority versus a minority. That’s the way God planned it. He didn’t want to do something about it, He wanted us to do something about it. And if we don’t, it’s gonna stay this way. We have to continue tweeting, we have to continue marching, we have to continue fighting for Trayvon Martin. If that’s not the case, he was killed in vain, and we’re just waiting for it to happen to our children. He’ll have gotten away with impunity. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That’s the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested–the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace. That’s how I feel personally about it.”

In 1992, Tyson was convicted of raping Desiree Washington, a beauty pageant contestant, and served three years in prison.

Trayvon Martin’s family reacts to Zimmerman’s arrest

Al Sharpton leading the Martin family in to the press conference.  Huge applause from the reporters.

Sharpton speaks…

45 days ago Trayvon Martin was murdered, Sanford Police Chief announced there would be no arrest, an outcry from all over the country came because his parents refused to leave it there, acting out of love and the basic principles this country was based on.  They believed in the system and believed the arrest will be made.

Gov. Scott announced that he would appointed a special prosecutor and we want to thank him and the prosecutor for what they should be.  Despite the fact we are different political parties, only the facts should matter when we’re talking about a human life.  If there had not been pressure there would not be a second look.  It’s the unknown people who took their time and money and stood up that could be my son or my grandson.  They charged him with a serious crime, he deserves a fair trial.  We don’t want anyone high fiv-ing tonight there are no winners.  We will not be gloating, we are still mourning, we will monitor the trial all the way, this is not a night of celebration, it’s a night that should never have happened.  Are we happy with the results, if Americans come together they can accomplish things.  We don’t know where it will lead but this family has the right of redress.

Tracy Martin

Want to thank everyone for being as passionate about this as we were and will be.  We have faith.

Sabrina Fulton

First thank God, we wanted an arrest, we got an arrest.

ALERT: George Zimmerman charged with 2nd Degree Murder, In Custody

Special Prosecutor, Angela Corey

Just moments ago she spoke with parents of Trayvon Martin, it’s the search for justice for Trayvon.

Thanks everyone…yada, yada, yada

We did not come to our decision lightly.

We do not prosecute by public pressure or petition, we prosecute by the laws of the State of Florida

(Continually talks about their efforts for justice for Trayvon, sounds like they were looking for a way to charge Zimmerman from the start.)

On behalf of our victim, Trayvon Martin and on behalf of the man who killed him, George Zimmerman, we are looking for justice.

Today we filed an information charging for 2nd degree murder for George Zimmerman and have issued an arrest warrant.

Keep praying for Trayvon’s family.

George Zimmerman IS in custody.  He turned himself in.  

Won’t discuss evidence.

(If convicted, where are they going to put him, seeing as to our prisons are filled with blacks?)

AG Eric Holder shows his racism again!

Eric Holder, Obama, Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the black panthers are the epitome of what a nigger is!   They keep pushing and pushing their racism and keep pushing for a race war when  a race war would not be an option if not for them.   There are hundreds of thousands of great, wonderful black people who don’t fit into this category and are not deserving of such names but let these assholes speak for them which ruins the whole race.

Eric Holder Praises Left-Wing Activist Al Sharpton, Says Facts, Law Will Guide Trayvon Martin Investigation

By Elizabeth Harrington

April 11, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – Attorney General Eric Holder praised left-wing activist Rev. Al Sharpton at the opening of the National Action Network (NAN) convention on Wednesday, and also stressed that the Justice Department is conducting a thorough investigation of the fatal Trayvon Martin shooting that “will examine the facts and the law.”

Sharpton, president of NAN and host of MSNBC’s Politics Nation, has led several rallies demanding the arrest of George Zimmerman, who reportedly shot Martin on Feb. 26. On Mar. 30 in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting occurred, Sharpton pledged that his group  would “move to the next level if Zimmerman isn’t arrested.”

At the opening of NAN’s 14th annual convention in Washington, D.C., the attorney general first thanked MSNBC’s Rev. Sharpton “for your partnership, your friendship, and your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve, and the promises we must fulfill.”

Concerning Trayvon Martin, Holder said, “I know that many of you are greatly — and rightly — concerned about the recent shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a young man whose future has been lost to the ages.”

“As most of you know, three weeks ago, the Department of Justice launched an investigation into this incident, which remains open at this time, and prevents me from talking in detail about this matter,” he said.

“Although I cannot share where current efforts will lead us from here, I can assure you that, in this investigation – and in all cases – we will examine the facts and the law,” said Holder. “If we find evidence of a potential federal criminal civil rights crime, we will take appropriate action.   And, at every step, the facts and the law will guide us forward.

The National Action Network, which Sharpton founded, has held multiple rallies about the Martin shooting, largely critical of shooter George Zimmerman, irrespective of an ongoing investigation.

Zimmerman, who has not been arrested in the case, said he acted in self-defense after following Martin on Feb. 26, the night Martin was killed.  A Florida special prosecutor announced on Monday that the case will not be taken before a Florida grand jury, though the investigation will continue.  The FBI and Justice Department are also pursuing their investigations.

MSNBC’s Sharpton has led several rallies, shouting “Arrest Zimmerman Now!”   and has called for civil disobedience and an “occupation” in Sanford, Fla., if an arrest is not made.

ALERT: George Zimmerman to be charged in Trayvon Martin shooting

George Zimmerman to be charged in Trayvon Martin shooting, official says

By , Updated: Wednesday, April 11, 2:46 PM

Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.

It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.

Martin, 17 and unarmed, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self-defense. Police in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, did not charge Zimmerman, citing the state’s “stand your ground” law.

Corey’s office released a statement saying it would hold a news conference “to release new information regarding the Trayvon Martin shooting death investigation” at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Jacksonville, Fla.

Benjamin Crump, who is representing the Martin family, said this week that Corey’s office had asked where Trayvon’s parents would be each day this week. They arrived Wednesday in Washington for a civil rights conference organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton, where they spoke to reporters.

Sabryna Fulton and Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s parents, said they would not comment on the charges because they had not been personally notified. They scheduled a press conference for 5 :15 p.m.

Earlier reports that Zimmerman’s lawyers said they did not know where he was did not bother Trayvon’s parents, they said.

“We do have faith in the justice system. When it is time to arrest him, they will find him,” Fulton said.

The announcement of a charge against Zimmerman would come a day after Zimmerman’s attorneys withdrew from the case, citing their inability to contact Zimmerman.

Lawyers Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig on Tuesday expressed concern about Zimmerman’s emotional and physical well-being, saying he has taken actions without consulting them. They also said they do not know where Zimmerman is.

“You can stop looking in Florida,” Uhrig told reporters. “Look much further away than that.”

Corey said Monday that she would not bring the case before a grand jury, which was expected to convene this week. She said her decision to forgo the grand jury should not be viewed as an indication of whether charges will be filed.

Corey has indicated in recent weeks that she might not need a grand jury to bring charges against Zimmerman.

The lawyers said they stand by their assertions that Zimmerman acted in self-defense when he killed the 17-year-old, who was unarmed, but they acknowledged that they formed their impressions without meeting Zimmerman.

ALERT: Zimmerman Prosecutor Press Conference Today

at 6 pm

I’m going to guess that charges will be filed otherwise the Special Prosecutor wouldn’t have come out with the press conference until late Friday to bury it in weekend news stories. Although, I think this is one story that, no matter which way it goes, will be hard to bury.

ALERT North Korea Launch ALERT

North Korea fuels rocket as nation names Kim Jong Un top political official

Published April 11, 2012

PYONGYANG, North Korea –  Defiant North Korea fueled up a rocket Wednesday in preparation for what appeared to be an imminent liftoff while the country’s young leader strengthened his power with a new title making him the nation’s top political official.

Kim Jong Un was named first secretary of the ruling Workers’ Party, a new post, while his late father, longtime leader Kim Jong Il, was given the posthumous title of “eternal general secretary” at a special Workers’ Party conference, the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported.

Kim Jong Un’s formal ascension, nearly four months after the death of his father, comes during a week of events leading up to celebrations Sunday marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of his grandfather, late President Kim Il Sung.

The centennial is a major milestone in the nation Kim Il Sung founded in 1948, and the streets were awash with new posters, banners and the national flag. Outside the city’s war museum and the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium, women in traditional Korean dress gathered in clusters, practicing for this week’s events.

North Korea has thrown open its doors to dozens of journalists from around the world to report on the events this week designed not only to honor Kim Il Sung but also to demonstrate unity as Kim Jong Un takes power.

One of the marquee events is a satellite launch poised to take place as early as Thursday that has raised international concern.

Space officials call the launch of the Unha-3 rocket, mounted with an Earth observation satellite, a “gift” to Kim Il Sung. They said Wednesday that the final step of injecting fuel into the three-stage rocket was under way in the coastal hamlet of Tongchang-ri.

“The launch of the Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite is the pride of our nation and of our people,” Rim Kwang Myong, a mathematics major at Kim Il Sung University, told The Associated Press.

A live feed at the General Command Center in the outskirts of Pyongyang showed the rocket on the launch pad covered with a tarp to protect the satellite from the wind.

Paek Chang Ho, chief of the command center, said the rocket is ready for liftoff as soon as engineers are given the green light. North Korea has informed international aviation, maritime and telecommunications authorities that the launch would take place between Thursday and Monday.

“We are injecting fuel as we speak,” Paek told reporters from a viewing platform in front of a large screen showing the live feed. Sixteen scientists in white lab coats worked at computers below him.

Because liquid rocket fuel is highly volatile and corrosive, its injection into the rocket is usually one of the final steps in the pre-launch process, experts say. But the weather, and particularly the wind, could force delays.

The United States, Japan, Britain and others say the launch would constitute a provocation and would violate U.N. Security Council resolutions banning North Korea from developing its nuclear and missile programs.

Experts say the Unha-3 carrier is similar to the type of rocket that could be used to fire a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead to strike the U.S. or other targets.

Paek denied Wednesday that the launch was anything but a peaceful civilian bid to send a satellite into space. He said the Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite is designed to send back images and data that will be used for weather forecasts and agricultural surveys.

“Some parties insist our peaceful space program is a missile test,” he told foreign reporters given an exclusive tour of the nation’s main satellite command center. “We don’t really care what the outside world thinks. This launch is critical to developing our space program and improving our economy.”

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday that the launch would be a direct threat to regional security and that the U.S. would pursue “appropriate action” at the Security Council if North Korea goes ahead with it.

This launch would be the country’s third attempt since 1998. Two previous rockets, also named Unha, were mounted with experimental communications satellites and sent from the east coast.

North Korean officials say the 2009 satellite reached orbit, but the U.S. and other outside observers say they have seen no evidence that it did.

The new title Kim Jong Un received Wednesday is among several political appointments and promotions expected this week. He was unveiled as father Kim Jong Il’s choice as successor at a similar party conference in September 2010.

Kim Jong Um already has been declared supreme commander of the armed forces, and is expected to gain other new titles formalizing his position as “supreme leader” of North Korea’s people and party.

Delegates also approved a reshuffle of party leadership, electing a new generation of officials to key posts.

Party member Choe Ryong Hae emerged a rising figure. He was named to the powerful Presidium of the Central Committee’s Political Bureau, joining three high-ranking officials already serving on the executive body.

Choe, who is in his early 60sh and recently was promoted to vice marshal, also was named a vice chairman of the party’s Central Military Commission, KCNA said.

Six others were named to the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, including Jang Song Thaek, who is married to Kim Jong Il’s sister, Kim Kyong Hui.

The immortalization of Kim Jong Il has provided a glimpse into how North Korea will treat the nation’s second hereditary succession. After Kim Il Sung died in 1994, he was declared the country’s “eternal president,” and Kim Jong Il ruled as chairman of the National Defense Commission.

Kim Jong Un could be promoted to chairman of the National Defense Commission, said Peter Beck, a Korea specialist at the Asia Foundation.

However, even after his new titles are revealed, much about North Korea’s leadership may remain murky, analysts said.

“North Korea is less monolithic than it looks from the outside, and, particularly as a new top leadership establishes itself in the wake of Kim Jong Il’s death, there will be as many questions raised as answers provided by the political choreography,” said John Delury, an assistant professor at Yonsei University in Seoul who has made several trips to North Korea in recent years.
