Howie Felterbush stood on the outskirts of the demonstration crowd, watching.
“Justice was rendered,” he said. “That’s why we have trials instead of (verdicts based on) public opinion.”
Felterbush was in Orlando earlier in the day and came to the courthouse to offer an opposing view. “That wasn’t to be had,” he said. “There was 95% Trayvon supporters.”
The Melbourne resident believes the jury made the right decision, but he didn’t say it very loudly. The 49-year old declined to be interviewed on video, saying he was uncomfortable because of the “state of things.”
Seriously? “Howie Felterbush” is too scared of black people rioting that he came up with a misogynist pseudonym? Because that’s so much better?
Also: “Howie Felterbush” is 49 years old? This just says everything you need to know about your modern conservative movement. Racist, misogynist, paranoid, and with the emotional maturity of a 14-year-old.
I’m trying to figure out what’s more offensive: the Zimmerman verdict itself, or the raging paranoia from right-wingers convinced that every black person is gonna git the white folk. Seriously, get over your damn selves. It’s not like black people haven’t been on the receiving end of judicial injustice for, oh, a couple hundreds years now.
I’d also like to thank the state of Florida for reminding me why I’ve boycotted it for 10 years now. That ain’t changing.
Florida is officially a vigilante state. Not the kind of place I want to go on vacation. God forbid someone should get scared of me for some unknown reason that needs no explanation. Of course, since I’m a white person I probably don’t have anything to worry about.
