Letter: Protests over George Zimmerman verdict the media's fault

August 6, 2013 

This crazy case over George Zimmerman and the other guy is nuts. I was raised to not be prejudiced and never have been. When I was a kid I played with all kids of all ethnicities and didn't even notice the difference.

All of the protesters picketing and causing problems are not worth this kind of problem to anyone. All they look for is a reason to cause a disturbance and strike out, burn this and that, steal this, break the windows of this store. It is crazy. Not worth the trouble.

Sorry to have to write this but somebody does have to say something about the crime on the streets. They are doing it to themselves. The news media has caused this whole problem. They just don't get it.
