Here we go again.

Perhaps you’ll recall an incident a few months ago when Rick Santorum went on a tangent about how he didn’t want to “make black peoples lives better by giving them someone else’s money;” and then denied it, claiming he’d really said “blah people?”

Well Rick is at it again, this time possibly referring to our Commander in Chief as an “anti-war, government nigger.”

According to the Huffington Post, police have turned over the investigation into the murder of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin to the Seminole County State Attorney’s Office.

Amid rising tension and outrage, the State Attorney’s Office will decide if 28 year-old neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman will be charged for Martin’s murder.

Police chose notĀ  to charge Zimmerman after he claimed that the shooting was in self-defense. But as news of the bizarre circumstances surrounding the shooting, Zimmerman’s violent criminal record, and allegations of police misconduct have surfaced, a second look into the case seems more than appropriate.
