Your Tip Is Justice For Treyvon Martin IYCATT (Admin) | July 14, 2013 | Bad Tips, Tip Database | Comments This is the most offended I’ve been working as a server for 10 years. How would you all have handled this “justification”? ~Shay “Your tip is Justice for Trevon Martin!!! We didn’t get Justice so you gets no tip!!” Tags:bartender, customer, server, tip, tipping, treyvon, treyvon martin, waiter, waitress Related Posts I Generally Tip 20 Percent, But… Comments | Mar 24, 2014 No Justice For Trayvon Martin, No Tip! Comments | Jul 17, 2013 Your Lack Of People Skills Was Amazing Comments | Jul 30, 2013 I Don’t Even Smoke… Comments | Jan 15, 2013 Nathan Lambert:July 15, 2013 at 2:45 amAre you kidding me? Sounds like a bunch of canadians (who always try to find a way out of tipping) using some bs excuse Tasha Wills:July 15, 2013 at 2:52 amI'm Canadian and you my friend are an a-hole for that comment. You're not any better than the person who left this note with a rude comment like that. FYI the post originated in the USA. Smh Andrea Meeks:July 15, 2013 at 2:53 amas a canadian and a server, and knowing many other serving AND non serving canadians, we don't look to always find ways out of tipping....in fact, I, and many other people I know, go out of our way to tip MORE while in the states, we know you make a much lower wage than we do as servers.....that is just insulting to say that Amanda Williamson:July 15, 2013 at 2:55 amNot that kind of Canadian.... Lauren Hamlin:July 15, 2013 at 2:55 amevidently you real Canadians don't know what 'canadian' means. he's not dissing canucks. Deb Christensen Vaarsi:July 15, 2013 at 2:56 amTasha Wills I see your profile picture- you are not 'canadian'. Kristen Johnson Romans:July 15, 2013 at 2:57 amTasha/Andrea...she does not literally mean Canadian. ..it is our way of saying someone who has a darker skin color because they never tip properly. Debbie Jansen:July 15, 2013 at 2:57 amI am Canadian and I tip damn fine, I was also a server for many years and know whats what.....don't be so bias..I have had many ignorant USA people as well.. Brenda Caraveo:July 15, 2013 at 3:00 amTasha Wills he didn't mean canadian literally... Cassidy Jane Volk:July 15, 2013 at 3:00 amHahahahahaha!!! The replies to your comment are hilarious!! I know what you're talking about.... I am a server. Justin Hoff:July 15, 2013 at 3:01 amhe is talking about black people Yaakov Abrams:July 15, 2013 at 3:01 am'Canadian' is server slang in some parts of the country for African-American diners. Yes, it's pretty racist and not respectful to our friends north of the border, but that's what it is. I worked in a restaurant in Tampa, FL where many of the servers referred to African-Americans as 'crickets'. Kristy D. Scoville:July 15, 2013 at 3:03 amShoot, when I was serving, the guests that were Canadians were the best tippers. I have found that in my 25 years of tipping, that it does not matter what race or ethnicity a customer is, you will have good & bad tippers from every walk of life. Sindy Trombley Dineen:July 15, 2013 at 3:04 amCanadians always tip where I work:-). I live a few miles from the canadian border in NY Karen Maughan:July 15, 2013 at 3:14 amWhe now call them celebrities, Canadians was too well known. And kinda fits how they act when they go out to eat! Tasha Wills:July 15, 2013 at 3:18 amDeb Christensen Vaarsi I am very much Canadian. I am from CANADA! There is no other 'Canadian' to me. First time I have heard of a black person being referred to as a 'Canadian'. Even if that was the case. The comment was beyond rude either way you look at it. I guess being a racist jerk justifies the said comment. Sick! Jay Mountain:July 15, 2013 at 3:27 ambunch of Canadians lol you moron usually we tip very well Americans are the ones that dont tip well and are disrespectful and think they are all that fu man !!!!!! Katherine Johnson:July 15, 2013 at 3:59 amPass the memo along to your little Canadian friends then because they are hagglers! I live & work on a resort island and so sorry but 80% of them leave you $2 and think they're doing you a favor. Luis Machado:July 15, 2013 at 3:59 amcan anybody explain Andrea what "canadians" means in the service industry please? Jason Reck:July 15, 2013 at 4:03 amGeezz Tasha Wills, are all Canadian's so uptight or are you the only one that can't take a joke? Storme Jaynes:July 15, 2013 at 4:04 amBy the Ebonics, it's safe to say they're not Canadian. Liene Carter:July 15, 2013 at 4:21 amI never heard of Black customers being called "Canadian" untill this page. Speaking of Canadians, why do they tip so bad? I have friends from Canada that I have asked what there tipping practice is. They say it's the same as the states, %15 - %20. We rarely get even %10. I asked some of them if they had any complaints or if there was anything that I could do to make their stay better. They always say that everything was great, food was great, drinks were great, I was great. So WTF! Also tipping the cocktail waitress 1 Canadian 25cent piece is fucked up. I throw them away. Even when they win thousands of dollars. I even had a guy that yelled at me to come back because wanted to give me more moneybecause he won $10,000. He gave me another 25 cents! Trish Johnson:July 15, 2013 at 4:35 amNot being rude, but overall, Canadians FROM canada that come down to florida during the winter Do not tip well, Now I am not saying all, but a good majority of them do not. And it is just not me saying this...Every server I work with will tell you the same thing...the average is 10 percent, and I myself have asked If everything was ok and to their liking. And always got a response of "It was wonderful thank you so much" I had Regulars that would come down every year and ask for me, they were the nicest people....BUT they didn't tip well...Didn't get mad, just figured they didn't know our wage.... Mara Christina:July 15, 2013 at 4:40 amThis has NOTHING to do with Canadians. Welcome to the internet... /facepalm its a figure of speech. Dawn LeBlanc:July 15, 2013 at 4:57 amHaha, I hate to be the one to tell you this Tasha and Andrea, but from the looks of your pictures, neither of you is the type of "Canadian" our bigot friend Nathan is referring to. Jeremy Skelton:July 15, 2013 at 5:18 amHAHAHAH! He doesnt meant ACTUAL Canadians as in people from Canada. LOL. Its a code word for a servers WORST kind of customer. Olivia LooneyLuna Whitford:July 15, 2013 at 2:46 amThat is very ignorant. They didn't even spell his name correctly. That shows how much they care. Ugh Jenn Reinap:July 15, 2013 at 2:47 amSeeing as how they couldn't even spell Trayvon's name right... they're just a giant bag of douche in every sense. Jeremy Skelton:July 15, 2013 at 5:37 amDo they ever spell anything right though? My news feed is polluted with shit from younger black people I know typing words like: "dis" = This. "Dat" = that. "Cuz" = because/cousin etc... Intelligence isnt their strong point. Thats why they have groups like the NAACP that are supposed to help them "advance" or catch up to the rest of us. Mike McAbee:July 15, 2013 at 5:46 amGeorge Zimmerman was Latino, not Caucasian.. Greg McCormick:July 15, 2013 at 6:11 amYou shouldn't pigeonhole an entire group of people because of the uneducated ones that use ebonics. Based on the ignorant comments you made yourself, it may come as a shocker that there are blacks who are actually educated and take pride in their grammar. Mind blowing shit, I know... By the way, fuck the NAACP. I've gotten to where I am today because of myself and my parents for instilling values in me. I don't need some fucking group to "advance" in life... Cali Réz:July 15, 2013 at 3:15 pmThank you Greg McCormick. I am so sick of these racist f*cks lumping all Black people together. Cali Réz:July 15, 2013 at 3:22 pmJeremy Skelton Screw you. There are plenty of "them" who can spell just fine, thank you. I'm also sure you'll find plenty of young people from whatever race you claim to be who use the same slang terms. So before you question the intelligence of an entire race how about you go fuck yourself. OK? Greg McCormick:July 15, 2013 at 4:44 pmCheréz Robinson I wouldn't even sweat the verbal sewage that he and others are spewing on here. We live in a world that's saturated with classless and pathetic individuals. Just look at many of the comments on this page. Robin Maxfield:July 15, 2013 at 7:39 pmSo true, there are plenty of white folks who are ignorant and and can't spell, we are all individuals and make our our own choices in life. Rachel Evans Jenkins:July 16, 2013 at 2:14 amthey?? you're just as ignorant man. Talking like that is what ALL young people do. Intelligence isn't are strong point?? SMH YOU and people like you black and white are the probably with division in our country. smh, jerk. Addison Johnston:July 16, 2013 at 3:31 amnice point Greg... Jeremy is a piece of shit Michael Paul Barry:July 16, 2013 at 3:57 amMike McAbee, latino refers to a culture; it's not a racial classification. George Zimmerman(german last name) is a caucasian. He is also latino. For comparison, I am latino. I speak spanish, my family is cuban, and I'm about as caucasian as they come. You try going to a place like Spain and you tell them they are not "caucasian." This is part of the problem with the US and race. Generally, there is a huge misunderstanding about the difference between ethnic/cultural background and race. Nevermind the fact that most people with white privilege can't seem to grasp the concept of institutionalized racism and like to pretend that it doesn't exist. Also, for future reference, latino/a linguistically refers to any individual from a culture that has its roots in a latin based language. That means that Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, and Romanian speakers are all latino/a. Jeremy Skelton:July 16, 2013 at 6:50 amDid you mean *our ? Curtiss Albany:July 16, 2013 at 1:49 pmI salute you Greg! I wish more people of all ethnicity could do the same. How ever people are just far to lazy to try and better themselves. Laverne Simon:July 17, 2013 at 2:17 amGreg McCormick Well said!! You are my new hero!!! Will Mcd:July 17, 2013 at 2:52 amusing "your" instead of "you're" isn't ebonics...it's just ....ummm...to quote Jeantal, "that's retarded, sir" Nichole Cybele Suzanne:July 18, 2013 at 2:45 pmRachel Evans You can tell what his level of intelligence is because he lumps a group of people in one category, based off of the actions of a younger, irrelevant, crowd. Sara Caller:July 25, 2013 at 2:53 pmWell Said Greg & Sarah. You two just gave me some hope for the future - I'm starting to wonder if our generation will or won't be up to the task of cleaning up the huge mess that is the prevalent culture in the USA. Cordell Stallings:July 30, 2013 at 3:36 pmGreat comment!! Just like labor unions have long outlived their usefulness ... doesn't mean that they were not once necessary to advance working conditions and wages. Likewise, I think it is extremely unfair to say that you are where you are because of yourself and your parents. A lot of legit hard work has gone into AA being able to be where we are now ... and a lot of that work was done by the NAACP among other influential activists. But I agree with the majority of your comment!!! Nicole Elizabeth:August 5, 2013 at 4:05 amJeremy Skelton I know a lot of people on Facebook who do that too - and guess what? They're WHITE. Typing nd for and, bcuz for because, mi for my, etc. Poor grammar/spelling/typing and lack of care/concern about these things is NOT a "black" thing, it's usually either a matter of laziness or ignorance, or is the result of lack of education - and those effect people of ALL races. BTW, isnt should be written "isn't" and "thats" should be "that's." When typing a sentence insulting the intelligence of an entire race, you should probably try to make sure that sentence is error-free. Gail Pace-Bowling:August 12, 2013 at 9:32 pmRobin Maxfield why do people say that if you can not spell you are ignorant? That is just plain Bull shit. Know one need to be called that or any other name. Period.. Daniel Watson:July 15, 2013 at 2:49 amI've been a server for 12 years... I would have lost my job over that shit and possibly have gotten arrested. How dare they use something tragic that has nothing to do with the directly to fuck someone else. They metaphorically just shot you and were found not guilty by their friends letting them do that. Ashley Harwich:July 15, 2013 at 3:17 pmThat's exactly what I said. Losing my job at best, getting arrested for assault at worst Greg Scheuber:July 15, 2013 at 2:49 amPathetic trash.... How people justify using someone else's tragedy as a cop out is cowardly Ashley Gray:July 15, 2013 at 2:47 amOh, that's a douche move. I am totally on Trayvon's side and this was wrong. Jeremy Skelton:July 15, 2013 at 5:37 amYep. My all of the black folks im friends with on FB have made at least 5 post a day about how pissed they are at this "injustice". Dont know if you remember the OJ trial but these same people were doing cartwheels in the street when he got away with double-murder that was actually per-meditated. If the victim was white OR the shooter was black, none of them would give a shit. Black-on-black homicide attributes for over 75% of the murders in this country. Its on the local new every single night. But not one work spoken by them about that. I say fuck TM. I want to throw a " we won" party just to piss off black people half as much as theyre pissing me off with all their bullshit uninformed comments about it. Greg McCormick:July 15, 2013 at 1:47 pmJeremy Skelton The funny thing is that everyone is making this a race thing, when it really should be a justice thing. I don't doubt there are some people who wanted Zimmerman to be found guilty because Trayvon was black. On the flip side, there are people the are genuinely happy Zimmerman was found not guilty, because they hate black people. Just look at some of the posts on here. More pigeonholes. It's an assault on one's intelligence to assume that someone is for one side or another based on race. Personally, I think OJ got away with double murder back and I think Zimmerman deserved manslaughter. So I wasn't one of those in the street doing cartwheels for OJ back in '94'. I was only 9, so I didn't really give two fucks to be honest lol. Don't even get me started on the black-on-black crime. It's an awful reality and I really wish people were more openly vocal about that. Those idiots Sharpton and Jackson only come out when something bad happens to blacks due to another race. I hate that I agree with you on the black-on-black thing, because based on your comments that I've seen, you come off as quite racist lol. Joseph Miceli:July 15, 2013 at 5:13 pmYou are wasting your time but props to you for fighting the good fight. All the racist bullshit these people are posting about this tip are just as bad as the racism that woman showed in writing that message because the server was white. It is NOT about race. Did any of these ignorant people see the protests? It was predominantly black but there were white faces, Asian faces, Latino faces in those crowds. This hurt black people badly, but this sort of miscarriage of justice hurts everyone and many of us DO realize it. Servers, if you are harboring such deep seated resentment of other races...you are in the wrong business. Guests, if you feel that you need to take out your politics on a defenseless server, then you are a bully and an asshole. Go eat at Chik fil hate. Jesus has a sandwich for you. Rachel Evans Jenkins:July 16, 2013 at 2:15 amNo one was on OJ's side. Just because he is black doesn't mean we were on his side. OJ did it. we all know that. The justice system sucks. That is our point. Smh Jeremy Skelton:July 16, 2013 at 7:08 amYou are right man. Its people like you that I have a great deal of respect for. You sound like someone who sees through the BS. I realize I DO sound racist as hell with what im saying. When I typed it I was just fed-up with reading all the G.D. Trayvon Martin posts in my news feed. Its true it should be a justice issue and not a race issue. Unfortunately its not for most blacks that I know personally. I live in one of the most dangerous cites per-capita in the U.S. I know im going to sound racist again here but MOST of the times ive ever been threatened, jumped, had a gun pointed at me, or harassed have been by young black males when I was minding my own business. Thats pretty standard in the area I live. So when this rare occasion of a so-called innocent child was shot by a non-black, and it enraged so many people that NEVER say a word about the normalcy of black-on-black crime, its very frustrating to hear and I just dont know how to express how I feel. .. I tip my hat to you for acknowledging the black-on-black crime and NAACP nonsense that never gets mentioned. I guess I just have too many black closet-racists on my "friends" list. When their negativity is causing me to post MORE negativity it only eats me up inside and brings me down to their level. Thanks for pointing this out to me. Im going to try my best to remind myself that their are good people like you who think based on logic instead of emotion. Linda McCarthy:July 21, 2013 at 8:59 pmJeremy Skelton I find it hard to believe that the people who are mad about the Zimmerman verdict are all the same people as were elated about the OJ verdict. There is a generational divide, so this can only really apply to people who are about 35 and older. Luis Cordero:July 23, 2013 at 7:59 pmJeremy Skelton please....PLEASE, show facts to back up any of this stupid shit you're writing. 75% of murders huh. I bet youd shuck and jive in front of any black person in real life before quoting your "statistics" or throwing a party celebrating the death of a teenager. Mark Cletus Early:July 15, 2013 at 4:33 pmI call that this is a fake. It seems like the type of thing some young conservative would write so he could post it and then say "oh look, I'm getting stiffed by black people. Oh woe is me, I'm a young white and there is no justice in this world for the white person. " Bullshit!!! Andy Lastyear:July 15, 2013 at 5:30 pmtotal bs Matt Perry:July 15, 2013 at 6:03 pmI don't believe that either; rings VERY false to me Dave Archer:July 15, 2013 at 3:32 amWe sure DID get justice for Zimmerman, it's called not guilty!!! But the majority that say Trevon didn't get justice want to turn this into a racial issue. Were you there? NO Did you see what happened? NO. They jury took all the evidence given to them and ruled that Zimmerman was NOT GUILTY so get over it and move on to the next case. It doesn't always have to be racial. Grow up!!! Neeci Packard:July 15, 2013 at 2:46 amOMG! why because they are black and you are white? how terrible for people to even think like this Kousin Karyn:July 15, 2013 at 9:19 amRe-freadking-diculous! Some people are soooo ignorant....well, just look at their grammar and you can tell! Steve Bailey:July 15, 2013 at 9:51 amNeeci, you'd better wake up and smell the coffee... this is REALITY. Let me say that again: REALITY. The reality is, there will NEVER be a colorblind Utopia you and so many of the brain-washed idiots seem to think there is/will be/should be..... Are there Black-folk who are just good people? Absolutely. But they are few and far between when it comes to CaucEuros (Caucasian Europeans), because A) racism is JUST as rampant amongst them, and B) what could be described as typical Black culture is incompatible with typical CaucEuro culture. I'm not a racist, I'm a Culturalist... And yes, I work as a server, and YES, blacks are by far, CONSISTANTLY, the worst patrons, both in attitude and in tipping. Neeci Packard:July 15, 2013 at 10:15 pmI know that racism is prevalent among everyone, and am not a brain washed idiot. I am well aware that typical Black or Hispanic culture is not at all comparable to Caucasian European culture. I think that old folks rival your last line, they tip as if it is 1970. I've been out to dinner with family many a time and go back to the table to leave the real tip. Steve, if you can look beyond some of the shit, people are just people. Some are true assholes and others not. anyone who is demanding and leaves shit for a tip should just go to Mc D's Kevin Miskel:July 16, 2013 at 5:33 amSteve Cohen , you deserve a standing ovation, sir! Citizen King:July 16, 2013 at 7:44 amA racist by any other name is still a racist. See, the truly ignorant thing here is that you're making a blanket assumption about an entire skin color. Every black, white, yellow, green, and purple person out there is a god damn individual and their actions are their own. I've had shitty tips from black people, but I've had more shitty tips from white people who received the same service. If you think people with black skin tip consistently the worst, you obviously have never dealt with highschoolers. Lorann Schmidt:July 21, 2013 at 11:18 pmSteve Bailey you can be whatever you wish to label yourself as, I am human. That is my race of choice. there are crappy black customers just as there are crappy white, hispanic, chinese, korean...continue the list customers. Stop with your generalizations and do your job. The reason this utopia will never happen is because of people who refuse to allow it to. Oh and those people are from different ethnic backgrounds as well, none of them being more than the other. Dennis Abell:July 24, 2013 at 12:26 am"I'm not a racist" Just stop. Shut the hell up, yes you are. Becki Morgan:July 16, 2013 at 4:10 amI would have followed them outside, crumpled it up and threw it in their face. They don't deserve respect because they don't give it, but demand it every day of their lives because they don't know any better. I hate people who blame others and the media for their misfortunes and turn around and use it to their advantage like not tipping. They hide behind a screen and a piece of paper to convey their feelings. Ben Katenkamp:July 16, 2013 at 3:12 pmThey even cared enough to spell Treyvon right.. Johnette Miller Wilmot:July 15, 2013 at 4:46 amI'm sure that's the reason for no tip. And the white people are racist right??? Drop the race card bullshit already. makes me sick. When will the hatred end? sick of the finger pointing that white people are racist and yet black people are the ones that promote it. Jennifer Brayton Lauppe:July 15, 2013 at 5:01 amThat is a HUGE load of crap. We always give good tips. I had a waitress tell us it was too much, and tried to give us money back. I told her that she had earned it. Don't screw these people, they work hard. Jacqueline D Monaco:July 15, 2013 at 2:52 amI, too, would have gotten fired for this. And given zero fucks about it. Would have been worth it. Matthew Airey:July 15, 2013 at 3:31 amU gets! Hillary McCrann:July 16, 2013 at 2:53 pmYou obviously should have found GZ guilty. What a crappy juror you were.... SMH, these people are idiots. Wouldn't you love to go into their place of employment (which - let's be honest - they probably don't have, hence the NO TIP) and just not pay for the service they provided to you?! Wouldn't it be great if we could just not pay for things because we didn't get our way in a totally unrelated incident?!?! "I saw a bad movie today, no tip for you!!" WAHHHHH! Roberto Melendez:July 15, 2013 at 2:48 amEat shit!! Not guilty!! Laura Parks:July 15, 2013 at 2:59 amWe?? Is he referring to the entire US population? Or just being a complete dickhead and treating an innocent server with nothing but disrespect to save a few bucks? Some people will use any excuse not to tip, but to use the death of an innocent teenager and transfer that rage onto someone who had nothing to do with the crime is just wrong in so many ways. That server might actually agree that the verdict was a travesty of justice and the person who wrote the note is completely ignorant and only adds to the problems we have as a nation when it comes to race. Beth Pittman:July 15, 2013 at 4:17 amWe is referring to the black community. Ever since the indecent lay year there have been people doing stuff like this. One group of people almost beat a white man to death for telling a group of kids they shouldn't play in the street and after they beat him with pipe, and what ever else they could get they pronounced that was justice for Trayvon. David Stevens:July 15, 2013 at 6:47 am^---- people have no moral Abby Jurk:July 17, 2013 at 8:10 pmWhat a disgusting thing to say about someone who lost their life. Jennifer Shank:July 15, 2013 at 2:55 amReally? People are going to make tipping a server about trevon. An asshole went free tonight. Florida laws are criminal. A young black man was shot. And died. And you are gonna make it about tips? Customer. Server. What's the point? My tip is not gonna change the fact that the young man is dead. David Stevens:July 15, 2013 at 6:45 amWhy is he a little thug-wannabe-gang-banger? Cause he was black and heading to ahome late at night from a convenience store? Steve Bailey:July 15, 2013 at 10:02 amAnd why are YOU so quick to be an apologist for what EVERYONE knows is one of the biggest scourges of our society? He was a thug wannabe because there are photos of him brandishing a pistol and throwing gang-signs, THAT's why, you incredibly dim fucktard! Cali Réz:July 15, 2013 at 3:30 pmSteven Cohen I took pictures like that when I was in my early 20s at a party just for fun. I am now a college educated, home owning, fully employed, contributing member of society. You're gonna base the worth of that boy's life over some pictures he took? So then should I assume by your Metallica and war related FB photos that you're a racist, war mongering skinhead? Or would that also be a ridiculous overblown assumption? People like you who hate and stereotype are the REAL scourges of our society and EVERYONE knows that. Joseph Miceli:July 15, 2013 at 5:17 pmSteve Cohen Not that it will change anything, but racist assholes like you are what everyone knows is one of the biggest scourges of society. The only thing preventing people like you from putting people like me in a camp somewhere with nice, clean showers is the lack of means. I see you. Karen Maughan:July 15, 2013 at 3:20 amThe whole thing shouldn't even be against whites since Zimmerman is Hispanic anyway...any reason not to tip! So disgusting! Thank The Lord I have been out of the service industry for a year now after almost 20 years. Brian Hodor:July 15, 2013 at 9:40 amAnd they didn't even spell his name right! Morons! Cassidy Jane Volk:July 15, 2013 at 3:02 amOh...wow! This is racist and cheap. Anything to get out of tipping. Lol! Hoyt C. Noble:July 15, 2013 at 3:34 amStupid. Cassidy Jane Volk:July 15, 2013 at 3:49 amRight. Joseph Breen:July 15, 2013 at 4:23 amI'm trying to find a tactful way to respond to this, and I'm not sure there is one. Let's just say, having been a server, this message is really most likely just an excuse to tip the way these people always tip. John Eckels:July 15, 2013 at 12:22 pmCheap and stupid! If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to eat out! Go to the grocery store and stay home, nobody cares about your opinion! Lara Rossell:July 16, 2013 at 11:43 amOh great...one more reason for them to be lazy and think the world owes them something. So now what? Are they going to stop paying bills in the name of Treyvon? How about stop doing drugs and get a damn job in his name? Krystal Mild:July 16, 2013 at 2:10 amThey're so worried about justice for Trayvon Martin that they don't even know how to spell his name. This person disgusts me. How are you going to blame a random person for something they had no control over that happened in a court room? Rita Mild:July 16, 2013 at 2:18 amawkward. Debbie Mild:July 16, 2013 at 2:23 amNobody was there to judge the evidence except the jurors & they decided what they thought was right. All these people making all this fuss don't really want justice for him, they just want an excuse to cause trouble. I know there will be some who disagree, but you know it's true. Judy Woodruff Roberts:July 16, 2013 at 2:43 amThey're just cheap. What goes around, comes around. Beth Pittman:July 15, 2013 at 4:11 amHow ignorant.... They probably wouldn't have anyways, but since there was a"reason "why not use that as justification.... What I find so hilarious is Zimmerman was Hispanic, but for some reason all these people claiming" justice for trevon" are targeting white people. Something isn't right there... Chris Wilson:July 15, 2013 at 9:43 pmHa they killed me with this one. what ignorance is this. the nerve of some people to think this was ok Anna Crase:July 15, 2013 at 12:35 pmUnless you are stiffing Mr. Zimmerman himself, you aren't trying to get justice, you're just being an ass. Martha Blayney Gonzalez:July 15, 2013 at 1:54 pmso stupid! Robert E. Lee:July 15, 2013 at 4:44 amThis doesn't even make any sense. At all. It doesn't have anything to do with anything. "Satan farted in my mom's mouth, so no tip for you!" Wait, what? Stephen LeBlanc:July 15, 2013 at 7:38 amcomparable to the Pentecostal: "Your tip is with Christ" Lola Dee:July 15, 2013 at 3:53 amFYI Trayvon Martin was in the wrong. He shouldn't have been harrassing George Zimmerman. It's a shame he was so young. But he acted like a thug. Cordell Stallings:July 30, 2013 at 3:57 pmI pray that you never know what it is like to fear the police ... to fear pulling out your wallet to show the cops .... to walk into a store and know that you are being looked at suspiciously .... to have to be conscious of what you wear when you go out at night ... that you never have to hear someone tell you surprisingly that you are "very well spoken" ... Now you may have experienced one of these such things in your life ... but imagine you have to live with that EVERYDAY of your life ..... If you can put on your empathy goggles for an hour and chew on that then perhaps you would rethink your statement. Not because its untrue ... but because that is exactly what someone like Trayvon would expect someone like you to say!!!!! He could have been a thug .... but that night he wasn't doing anything but walking home .... so to me and millions of other people ... that night Trayvon was not a thug he was me, he was my son and most importantly he is DEAD at the hands of another civilian who profiled him as suspicious!!
