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.

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.
