    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...

    I will never forget 9/11.

    Before 9/11 I kinda liked Muslims I was OK with them; but after the day of 9/11 I stopped trusting them. I personally think Islam should be outlawed in the United States. I will not trust them until ISIS is eradicated. Then I might trust them again.
