On Sunday, 07.14.2013, the day after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman of all charges in the shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, KPFA produced a special broadcast of the Sunday Show, including many voices. This is the voice of John Burris, who spoke to KPFA's Davey D Cook for almost ten minutes about why the prosecution failed. He confirmed what Mumia Abu Jamal wrote, before the verdict was delivered: that the defense had succeeded in turning every witness for the prosecution into a witness for the defense. A link to the longer broadcast that it was extracted from is included below.

Killing Nazis-Fascist destroyers of the environment is honerable and useful, and there is no reason to suspect that nowadays, it is any way different by world law of the Nuremberg Trials. Practicing and doing of aggressive war is now and forever the worst supreme crime on the planet earth. It accuates all other crimes high, low, big, and small.

Chair of the Nuremberg Trials the U.S. judge Jackson wrote into world law that the planning and doing of aggressive war against the worlds livability is the worst crime whether Germany does it or the U.S.A does it. Zimmerman which is a German name shot and killed an unarmed teenager. That is murder. He was found 'not guilty' of murdering Treyvon Martin because he murdered an unarmed teenager.

False info is happening from the Nazi front that Trayvon is guilty of being killed by his murderer. Such double think is illegal by the anti-fascist covenents.

Zimmerman is guilty of lying and Trayvon was the one deliberately stauked and murdered by Zimmerman who is guilty of murder.

Workers of the world unite!! You yet have a world to win!!
