What the two of them need to do, is stop using their iphone to spy on naked woman and then make their music and video. Digital spies!!!!

These "celebs" dont' even have a clue. They jump on a bandwagon of a hot topic media story to stay in favor with their fans. DO you think Jay Z or Beyonce would support Zimmerman even if they thought he did not mean to kill Treyvon? 7 year old BLACK girl in Chicago shot standing outside at at triubute party with her grandma this weekend by a BLACK person. Grandma shot also. We holding phone up for her too? Is the BLACK guy who shot them a racist or just a gang thug? The 7 year old = innocent. Treyvon - NOT a model teen at all!

My understanding the reason the black woman was found guilty is that she retreated in other words she left and came back with a gun and fired it. That once she retreated she was no longer in imminent danger . And there were children around when she fired the weapon. The reason for the 20 years is Florida has strict gun laws. Don't have to hit the person you're shooting at just the use of a gun will get you up to 20 years The difference in Zimmerman case is Zimmerman didn't leave or retreat and go get a gun and then shoot.He would not have been in imminent danger any longer.once he left or retreated. That's the law,don't get mad at me but that was my understanding of how she got 20 years. I believe GOV. Scott and others are looking at the case or going to.

It's my understanding the reason the jury found her guilty was because she actually retreated or left the garage and came back with a gun and fired it. The self defense couldn't be used because she retreated ,in other words they felt she was no longer in imminent danger but came back with a gun and fired it.

I didn't see any white people cheering and celebrating at the courthouse and in the streets after the Zimmerman verdict like you saw blacks cheering and celebrating after the OJ verdict. Check the news footage of both verdicts.
