    Collin Powell, former Secretary of State and a retired four star general, said on Sunday morning that the George Zimmerman not-guilty verdict will be seen as a “questionable judgement.”

    “I think that it will be seen as a questionable judgment on the part of the judicial system down there, but I don’t know if it will have staying power,” Powell said on CBS’ Face the Nation.

    “These cases come along, and they blaze across the midnight sky and then after a period of time, they’re forgotten,” he added.

    No this is no surprise, Colon only cares about the color of a mans skin today, facts and character have no meaning in his world.
    If it is a Teen vs White issue colon will take the side of the Teen every time.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    And how does Powell see OJ Simpson's acquittal?

    Race first, rule-of-law second. On top of that, despite being a (Purely-)nominal Republican*, Powell is consistently anti-Second Amendment, so he has multiple pet rocks stacked up against Zimmerman.


    *His affiliation to the Republican Party is basically limited to saying he was one so Bush I and Rumsfeld would accelerate his general officer promotions, which are much more political than promotions for Colonel and below. The Black general in Mars Attacks! is a pretty good tongue-in-cheek picture of Colin Powell.

    Colin Powell is a sad case, an example of someone putting race over anything else. He is such a disappointment, as used to have such respect for how high he had risen. He's one like Christie that should officially change parties.

    In other words, having been compared to Hitler, you now feel free to confirm the comparison?
