Commentary on Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman Verdict: Monsters Cheering "Hallelujah," Murdered Boys on Trial for Own Murder

Mary Elizabeth Williams at Salon, "America's Summer of Hate":

And the monsters can cheer "Hallelujah."

Syreeta McFadden by way of Abby Zimet at Common Dreams, "George Zimmerman Gets Away with Murder": 

Only in America can a dead black boy go on trial for his own murder.

And last night, I thought, I live in a country that makes me wish my sons away, wish that they don't exist, because it's not safe.

Chris Hayes by way of Jack Murkinson at Huffington Post, "George Zimmerman Coverage":

Kendrick Perkins by way of Dave Zirin at The Nation, "Athletes Respond to Trayvon Martin Murder":

America's justice system is a joke.

As always in the Sunshine State, justice was served tonight. For another example . . . .*

And then, of course, there's this: Robert Zimmerman, Jr. (George's brother) by way of Jermaine Spradley at Huffington Post:

What makes people angry enough to attack the way Trayvon did?

And this: Bob Owens by way of Liam O'Donoghue at Salon, "Most Disgusting Reactions to Zimmerman Acquittal":

Trayvon Martin tried to kill George Zimmerman. He just failed at that as he did everything else in his life.

George Zimmerman to get his gun back.

Jesus still looking pretty dead to me.
