Wtf is wrong with you two curfews are you serious? What is that going to solve? And yes white society will be keeping us hostage in our homes. How about you two get together get a clue and understand who's really putting the guns on the streets. Check with these ppl from other countries who build corner stores over night check with the rednecks down south that sell guns to gang bangers to bring to nyc. From the use of the word blacks you must b white and if your not god help your soul. Lock my sons in the house I don't think so.

Mr. Zimmernan became highly overzealous and transformed into a murderer. Mr. Zimmerman, why did you approach assumed danger?? Ironically, at this point his excuse is that the young man punched him. So, just like the rest of those punk bitches you end a human life, and try to justify it.

Ok, that is one thought on it. I think kids should not be out past a certain time anyway, White, Black, or of any other race. By reading your comment it is evident that you are not a person that can control your emotions. I hope your child does not behave this way, because society will not treat him/her well. You are a prime example of what is wrong with society, you are not capable of controlling your emotions. If you are Black, you just contributed to the stereo type that plagues your race in America. Blacks have such a great tradition and history, but unfortunately people like you ruin it in the eyes of others.

I really don't like the uderlying bitter tone on some comments I read here. "Blacks"? Really? Anywho, I disagree with curfews. This is not the Jim Crow era nor Nazi Germany. Individuals are responsible for their actions...period! Gaining and enforcing laws that inhibit civil rights and liberties is an opportunity to pry open Pandora's box.
